WordPress Changing Blockquote

WordPress Changing Blockquote

I like to use the blockquote feature in WordPress for quoting vendor/publisher information, but by default it’s just plain ugly with a grey background. I did some searching online and found a good example providing information, which needs to be edited in style.css or if you have Jetpack added to Edit CSS. blockquote { width: 90%; color: #3B3131; background: #f1f1e4; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; border: 1px solid #111; }...

WordPress Set File As Default Link To

WordPress Set File As Default Link To

A comic book site I edit uses a lot of images as you would imagine, but frequently contributors forget to set the Link To section of adding images. More often than not this means instead of readers getting a nice enlarged version of the image popping up on their computer it does nothing (Link To None) or goes to a new page showing the image at the same size (Link To Attachment Page). I’ve asked everyone to make sure this feature is set to...

Adding CBZ format to WordPress

Adding CBZ format to WordPress

On a SEO company website I look after we wanted to add a store for digital downloads, and one of the formats offered would be CBZ, a standard format for unencrypted and DRM free digital comic books. Turns out you need to add that file type to WordPress before you can upload them to the media library. Finding an online solution to adding new file types to WordPress was easy, but the MIME type was required. That proved a little more complicated...

Windows 7 Install Doesn’t See SSD

Windows 7 Install Doesn’t See SSD

I was setting up a new PC and pulled a 60 GB SSD from an idle system to use in this build. I started the Windows 7 installation but when it trundled along to the hard drive portion no local drives were detected. I rebooted and checked the BIOS, but the drive was recognized. Another step into Windows and the same thing: no drive. A few more trips to the BIOS and adjustments made to hard drive type (AHCI, native mode IDE) but no changes. Furious...

Remove “Insert from URL” in WordPress

Remove “Insert from URL” in WordPress

I don’t like pulling images from other sites directly for posts: it’s using the bandwidth from someone else’s website. Instead I’ll save the image, upload it and then credit the image back to the source. I look after a multi-author website and sometimes people forget our policies and I have to edit the post to remove that image URL, download it and upload it. To get around this I wanted to remove the option of...

BurnCDCC: A Very Small ISO Utility

BurnCDCC: A Very Small ISO Utility

I was looking around for a boot CD that would allow me to edit TrueCrypt volumes the other week and came across one that included a tiny 81 KB utility called BurnCDCC. It does one thing and one thing only: burns an ISO image to an optical disc. It’s one file, that’s it, and at that size perfect for getting the job done. Did I mention it’s free? Thank you Terabyte Unlimited for creating BurnCDCC; go to their Freeware page and...
