Although I rarely use the search option on my site I noticed that my Contact page was being included in the search results. Not only did this seem pointless, it also looked strange slap-bang in the middle of the results page.(more…)
I hadn’t noticed it, but someone recently pointed out that this site’s page navigation wasn’t working.
I’d upgraded to WordPress 3 a few weeks back and it quickly became clear that this was part if not all of the reason why, as page navigation worked perfectly after downgrading this site to WordPress 2.9.2.(more…)
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.(more…)
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.

In a recent blog comment I was asked if I happened to know why the inFocus theme doesn’t display blog post images on single blog post pages.
I too had noticed this when adding images to my blog posts and assuming this was, for whatever reason, how the developer intended it to be thought no more of it.
However, looking at the code it seemed simple enough to add this ability. You can see the quick-and-dirty fix here or read on for what is perhaps a cleaner solution.(more…)
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.(more…)
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.(more…)
