    According to politico.com Hillary Clinton wants to run for president again. LOL http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/02/hillary-clinton-is-running-for-president-again-214766

    She barely survived the last election. Her and George Soros just want to hang onto the little bit of power that they got right to the very end…. You got to feel sorry for these sorts of people really, if they are this desperate for power. Just retire and play golf, already! You are rich enough why do you need even more money!? Oh, right I forgot…[Read more]

    Want to show a welcome message to logged out users only?
    There are a few ways you can do this but the easier ways are:

    Embedding this code into your theme in the place you want the message to display and using this code:

    <?php

    if ( is_user_logged_in() ) {

    echo ”;

    } else {

    echo ‘Welcome, visitor! Why Not sign…

    In reply to: gary posted an update @*$! off bloggers! Your opinions are not your own so stop lying! Stupid bloggers are damaging our economy and lying to people just to make a quick buck or two. How can small businesses even compete on the internet when big multi million dollar brands use dishonest practises to buy fake reviews online from greedy bloggers to trick people into thinking that their products are brilliant when there actually not.. What is more from these fake reviews these bloggers are also helping these big brands to rank higher in search engines like google because part of the deal that these bloggers make with the big brands is to supply the brands site with a dofollow and usually keyword rich anchor text. This pushes down smaller more honest brands down in the search results harming consumers and small businesses in the process. Amazon uses an affiliate scheme that is designed to motivate bloggers to write reviews and articles praising different products from amazon (even if that bloggers hasn\'t even used the product before in his or her life) just to get people to buy from amazon through their affiliate link so they get a commission from the sale. 9 times out of the ten when amazon affiliates link to to amazon using their affiliate link they do not warn the blogger at all that the whole review is just based on them trying to get people buy from amazon.. usually the bloggers will try their best to disguise the link using an url obfuscater the best they can to further trick their readers and to hide their real motivation behind the review. Another big brand that getting bloggers to write dishonest reviews is scholl. scholl is going around paying or simply bribing HUNDREDS of bloggers with free gifts for them to write a reviews about scholls products and to supply their site with a dofollow link. Most of the links that is powering scholls site to the top of the search engines come from fake sponsored reviews and giveaways. You can tell that these reviews are fake as the blogger either states the review is sponsored, the review is always 100% positive about scholl and never gives any criticism at all, the blogger tells you that they have received the products from scholl for free or simply that they will litter the blog posts full of keyword rich text links to scholls websites that are used time and time again on other reviews on other sites. These are just two examples of the many big brands that are doing this! So if you ask me never ever take a bloggers reviews as the truth! So as you can see the internet is not a level playing field at all. View

    Here is an easy way in wordpress to add a class to the body element which you can then use to alter your design if wordpress is using a sidebar or not

    Simply add the following code to your theme function.php which will check to see if sidebar is active and if it is then it will add the class has-sidebar to the body.

    add_filter( ‘body_class’,…[Read more]

    Here is how I am adding custom jquery to a wordpress theme I am currently developing.. in other words how I am making an inbox in the header show on click and then disappear when you click on something else.

    First I had to call the jquery script in the foot.php of my wordpress theme (you want it being the last thing loaded)

    Who the hell does president Obama think he is coming all the way from America just to tell us.. no wait threaten us not to leave the EU!

    Here is a good if statement for echoing out the number of notifications a user has in buddypress and IF the count is 0 then nothing is displayed. This is useful for adding to your header.php as a kind of bubble that can appear next to an icon or something linking to your notifications page to let users know that they have a new notification just…[Read more]

    • Another useful piece of buddypress code would be

      <?php echo bp_core_get_userlink( bp_loggedin_user_id() ); ?>

      which will display not only the currently logged in users name but also will make it a link to the users profile page.

If you have a complex and difficult programming question don’t bother going to that site.. because if it your question isn’t something like “How do you echo out hello world?” then you aren’t going to get any answers!

    In reply to: James posted an update Here is my quick review on Ampps a virtual server that lets you develop sites locally on your computer! Something that people rave about with ampps is the fact that you are able to start devloping your wordpress site within just a couple mintues of downloading the thing! This is because ammps comes with softaculous which allows you to quickly install popular content managaement systems such as wordpress straight nto your server (in this case my computer) without having to go through the tedious process of creating a database and setting up your config files properly.. well thats ampps is theory but in reality it is a very different story. However ampps is actually a pile of crudd! Ampps has so many random errors that make zero sense making using it very frustatring and near impossible to use. I have so far been using ammps for 2 days now which isnt really that long but already I have had a ton of errors and problems, I have even have had to reinstall ampps totally to get it to run because it simply stopped working all together. The first problem I encountered was the wordpress softaculous install just freezing when you press install.. nothing happened! But when I decided to try it again for some mystical reason it decided to do it like a charm! A more serious error I got was on day 2 when Ampps just refused to start up mysql! After reinstalling Ampps which didn\'t seem to work I decided to do a bit of research and it turned out that Ampps for some odd reason corrupted a couple of files in my mysql/data folder meaning after a bit of research I found out that this was an error that lots of people were having and to fix it you just need to delete some files within the \\Ampps\\mysql\\data folder (just the files and not the folders), and then ampps would replace these files and mysql would start working again however if you have wordpress installed you will have to reinstall it because deleting these files knocks it out! It actually turns out that this error is simply caused by you turning off your computer without turning of ampps first. After sorting out this error I ended up getting yet another error when trying to click on wordpress on softaculous \"The INFO.XML file could not be found! Please report this to the server administrator.\" but after reloading the page a few times this error went away! Also I have also witnessed other silly erorors for example sometimes when installing a wordpress installation through softaculous the user names and passwords would not be recognized or if you do finally get wordpress to install you might find that when trying to upload media through wordpress you will get \"An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later.\"! If all of this wasn\'t enough Ampp sometimes laggs when loading pages as though it is struggling to connect to the internet even though it should be running ultra fast because it is meant to be just on my computer! (to be fair this might be just down to my extremely bad cmputer though.) Anyway I would like to say that ampps is great and a real time saver... but because of these weird random errors that keep cropping up I cannot really say that because at the end of the day the time saved through installing through softaculous is quickly lost through trying to fix a errors! But having said all of this.. it is free! 😀 View

    okay here is a quick update, the ammps lag was actually due to my internet messing up and disconnecting.. now that this has been fixed I no longer get any lag however I still get the problem where if I just turn my computer off without disconnecting ammps it messes it all up.
