Still Being Puzzled by My Web Site Admin Issues!

By Tim

This is really, really frustrating and the web host has been of little to no help. But once I go into my admin panel in WordPress after a few edits or posting a new post, I am unable to connect to the site!

Worse yet I can’t connect to any of my sites once the connection is broken, which all reside on the same IP!

So if anyone has a clue as to why this maybe happening, I would certainly appreciate the help!

You can leave a comment here, but DO NOT leave a URL otherwise it will get auto-deleted…sorry. Leave comments in the YOUTube post below.

The sound, as usual, isn’t perfect, but you can see the issue easily. This is not just a VPN issue, it happens when connected via cable or phone hot spot directly!

That is all for now,

Tim

Do You Think Your Site Is Secure? The Odds Are You Are Wrong

The Internet is still the Wild West!

Sure you have lots of firewalls, IP-Blocks and all sorts of other good security measures on your web server.

I have the same stuff and nothing here even worth hacking, but if you click the image a the top of this article you will see an average day here…

Yep, this is a short post, but if you have a WordPress powered web site, install some security! I am using the Shield plugin, plus a few others.

That is all,

Tim

So to properly test out the Dragon Touch X10 I installed a server app and WordPress. It works!

So in my never ending quest to find out something that my Dragon Touch X10 tablet can’t do, I decided to throw a web server app on it today.

I can happily report that the KSWeb app and WordPress work just dandy on this tablet (which I am writing this post on using it in LogiTab configuration). The screenshot at the top of this article is the site I set up, strictly for loca testing, of course….

Below you wil find a short video that I screen captured (a very nice built in feauture on the Dragon Touch slate).

Got WordPress? Having cron (scheduling issues)? Running Linux?

webmin1If you are like me you wouldn’t ever dream of running a web server on the holy swiss cheese of security known as Windows, not to mention the ridiculous pricing and lousy support.

So if you do have a WordPress site running at home or maybe elsewhere you might run into issues where your wp_cron.php file just ain’t hacking the program. Take this little server here for instance, since I switched over to a Linux LAMP stack from Turnkey Linux I have had to manually update my feeds via the RSS Multi Importer plugin. Even my little Asus Tablet running android and KSWeb did the automated tasks in WordPress better than this super, duper, VM with twice the ram and 100 times the disk space.

So I read, and I Googled and I learned and in just under 5 hrs last night I solved my cron issues. This virtual host now imports feeds every 15 minutes or so and the others I have running on this machine do them every 30 mins to an hour.

How you do that? You might be asking… well I took some advice from what I learned on the web, then had to insert a bunch of common sense/logic to replace the lack of decent help from the pure Linux geeks who assume we all know what is going on in their heads….no offense geeks, you put out the info, but left out many details.

I also used a super easy piece of software to edit my Linux cron scheduler, it’s called Webmin and probably makes the true Linux gurus squeamish, but it works just dandy.

The only command you need is the one below:

wget http://mywebsite.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron=1 > /dev/null 2>&1

Note: If you don’t happen to have access to cron on your web host I will suggest you try out a site such as EasyCron.com. Keep in mind the setup/command is still the same with the exception of not needing the ‘wget’ command.

Below you will find the crappy video I made showing how I set things up on this site to grab news feeds every 15 minutes,

Review: Fourteen Colors Plugin. Change your Theme Colors Easily in the Twenty Fourteen Theme.

fourteencolors_logoIf you are running the latest stock WordPress theme which is Twenty Fourteen, you may wish to change the colors on the sidebar and menu areas.  The theme is pretty nice stock but it is nice to have a bit of variety.

You could go and edit the theme CSS files or you could just get the Fourteen Colors plugin. The plugin allows you to change the colors easily from the regular customize menu in dashboard. (Appearance>Customize). I went ahead and changed my sidebar/menu colors with the plugin today and it took all of a minute or so, most of which was wasted trying to pick a shade of gray.

Installation takes about 30 seconds and once activated you will see a few extra buttons under the colors section of your customize menu. It then takes literally seconds to change your site’s appearance.

This one gets 5 stars for ease of use. If you are running the Twenty Fourteen theme, this is worth the 30 seconds to install.
