Find previous versions of WordPress plugins

Find previous versions of WordPress plugins

I ran the WordPress Updates as normal but found one plugin had taken some of the free features and moved them to the premium version. I needed one feature and started looking for the previous version. Turns out the WordPress repository keeps them all available. On the plugin page look on the right side under the initial stats and click Advanced View. Now scroll to the bottom and you’ll see a new section called Previous Versions with a...

iPhone photos, EXIF, sideways photos and WordPress

iPhone photos, EXIF, sideways photos and WordPress

I like to include a good amount of photos in my book reviews and have always followed the same procedure. I take the photos with my iPhone and edit them in Gimp for use in on various WordPress sites. This worked well, until two weeks ago. I had just completed my review for Will Eisner’s A Contract with God Curator’s Collection and published it. It looked good on the site, which I viewed on my Windows 10 PC with Chrome, but when I...

Hard drive filling with CAB files

Hard drive filling with CAB files

A business I work with uses FileMaker for their point of sale (POS) system and lately has had all their PC’s hard drives fill with CAB files in the Windows Temp directory along with log files in the Windows Logs CBS folder. Apparently this behavior is caused by the Microsoft Windows Modules Installer (TrustedInstaller.exe), trying to create a CAB file of old logs and failing to do so over and over again. This appears in Windows 7, 8 and...

Open all WordPress external links in a new tab or window

What a pain when you’re working on a chart or index that has hundreds of links. If you keep running into error messages then check out how to fix it at https://www.errorsolutions.tech/....

Fan at 100% all the time for small form factor PC

Fan at 100% all the time for small form factor PC

I’ve had a Jetway JBC600C99352W-BW small form factor PC for quite a few years, and it continues to perform. A little long in the tooth with an Intel Atom D525 processor and Nvidia ION2 graphics, it gets the job done and is quite small. I’ve used it as an all purpose general usage PC, a Plex client for playback on my television, and a router (with additional USB NIC). Last year the cooling fan started running at 100% all the time....

Automating Ninite, As Much As Possible

Automating Ninite, As Much As Possible

Ninite is a wonderful tool for downloading free software onto your Windows PC; it also works on Linux but we’re just looking at the Windows version. Go to the website, check off the programs you want and run the supplied installer. That’s it, no prompts or anything, just free software installed. Ninite always has the latest version available, so you can run that same installer file again and again to get the latest versions. There...
