inFocus, GoDaddy and Internal Server Errors

i

I’ve been a customer of GoDaddy for over four years. I know (now) their reputation isn’t the best, but I signed-up with them when I knew no better and to be honest I’ve never really had a problem with their service.

However, last week I started getting 500 Internal Server Error messages whenever I tried to access this blog or login to the WordPress Dashboard. This was a little surprising as I hadn’t made any recent changes.

Displaying Statistics from WordPress.com Stats

D

I recently had a problem with the WordPress.com Stats plugin I use. On reading the documentation for an answer I saw that, on an unrelated note, it’s possible to retrieve statistics, such as post view counts, using the WordPress.com Stats API.

I never did find an answer to my problem and it since appears to have rectified itself, but I thought I’d have a go at getting view counts for my posts using the API and including them on my blog.

inFocus WP Theme: Display Blog Post Images on Single Blog Post Pages

The effect is actually quite easy to achieve and uses some simple JavaScript to change the CSS display property of the element containing the list. However, there are a few things to note.

Snow Leopard 10.6.3 Update Woes

S

In the 10 or so years I’ve been using Macs I can’t remember an Apple software update ever adversely affecting one of the many I’ve owned. That is until the recent 10.6.3 update.

Being a bit of a software-update junkie I installed the standalone 10.6.3 update on my late-2007 24″ iMac within hours of its release. Perhaps I should have heeded the calls of those more level-headed users and waited.

inFocus Social Media Icons

i

WebTreats have recently released a set of Social Media Icons for all 10 of the inFocus theme colours and provided instructions on how to include them in the sidebar.

Anyone who’s tried this has no doubt noticed that on switching the inFocus theme colour the social media icons in the sidebar may not match the new chosen theme colour. Well, no big deal really. But if you want the icons to match whichever inFocus theme colour you choose, try this.
