Adding Facebook social plugins (comments) to your own website

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

I’ve used the Facebook Connect social plugins to provide a comments feature to my website blogs (see: Blog comments using Facebook connect social plugins). The reason I added this was because of the way that I create my blog. I use WordPress as my blog engine running on my WatkissOnline web server, but then depending […]

Change in copyright rules for First Aid Quiz website

Saturday, February 20th, 2010

I have changed the copyright rules for the First Aid Quiz printable questions. I have relaxed the rules to make it easier for the questions to be incorporated into a commercial training session as this is something I have received enquiries about in the past.

Redesign of – Free and Open Source software – Linux certification and open source electronics

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

I’ve now completed a major reorganisation of the PenguinTutor web site. This is the most significant change to the site since it was launched in 2006. The first reason for the change is to reorganise the content. Although it appeared to make sense at the time some of the categories were not as logical as […]

Adding search capability to WordPress web site

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

I’ve converted WatkissOnline web site to be completely generated by wordpress. One of the benefits of this is that it means that the WordPress built in search function can be used to search the entire site and not just the blog as it was before. There are a few things that needed to be done […]

Happy New Year 2010

This screenshot shows the cpanel bandwidth for my “Unmetered” account with Compila for The site was down again briefly last week due to exceeding the so called “unmetered bandwidth”. Fortunately on this occasion I saw this soon after the site stopped working and was therefore able to get them to rectify the problem. Unfortunately […]

Book Review: Son of web pages that suck and Web sites that work

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

Looking at the title of these two books you’d think that these were the complete opposite of each other. In a way this is true, but they are both teaching the same thing, which is how to make a professional looking website. I’ve reviewed this together as they do in fact have quite a lot […]

Website powered by WordPress – Website in a blog

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

I’ve now converted my WatkissOnline website to be completely generated from WordPress. It is still running on the same hosted Linux web server. Most visitors will probably not notice any change, or if they do they are more likely to see that the menu has been shrunk and the entries changed which is a separate […]
