Big Changes Coming To First Division Museum at Cantigny Park

The mission statement for the First Division Museum at Cantigny Park, Wheaton reads ´Preserve, Present, Promote. Our mission is to preserve, interpret and present to the public the continuing history of the US Army’s 1st Infantry Division, the Big Red One, in order to promote learning about our country’s military.” This mission statement will be adhered to fully when the museum reopens to the public with a set of new, interactive exhibits that are designed to commemorate the 100 years of the 1st Infantry Division’s existence and its contribution to America’s military prowess.

The museum will officially close its doors on Veterans Day in November 2016 and will reopen to the public to coincide with the centennial anniversary of the First Division and World War I, in the summer of 2017. They will then be ready to welcome the 170,000 people who visit on an annual basis.

The museum’s management announced the start of a $ 7 million upgrade to the exhibits that are currently on display. These exhibits span the Division’s history from when it was started in 1917 through to the Vietnam War. They will add new exhibits that cover more recent history where the emphasis will be on the deterrence, peace-keeping and counterinsurgency tasks undertaken by the Division in Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

Paul Herbert, the museum’s Executive Director, said, ´ The division is still on active duty, it’s still serving us. It’s got more story to tell. As time marches on, more and more of our visitors have less personal identification with those more distant conflicts and more immediate identification with things that have happened within their lifetimes. So we have to meet the needs of our visitors.”

This museum was founded in 1960 and the last major renovation and upgrade were done in 1992 when it moved to its current location within the Cantigny Park Visitors Center. Exhibits have been upgraded and managed over the years but the time has come to give the museum a major overhaul and ensure the exhibits remain fresh and interesting for all visitors.

Cantigny Park is the former estate of Col. Robert R. McCormick, a veteran of the First Division who fought in France during World War I.

This museum is a favourite for many Americans and whilst the exhibits will be upgraded all the old favourites will remain in place. Herbert assures visitors that, “You’re still going to be able to walk through the World War I trench, you’re still going to be able to go up on the beaches of Omaha, you’re still going to be able to walk through the Vietnam jungle. Those are kind of our crown-jewel experiences, and visitors tell us over and over again, ‘We love it.’ We’re not changing it.”

The company that has been retained to undertake the renovations, Luci Creative, has said that whilst the museum will not be physically rebuilt, the inside will be dramatically different when it reopens its doors.

A.J. Goehle, director of strategy and design at Luci Creative, said, “We’re using interactivity to involve visitors to go deeper into the content while also allowing us to create more immersive experiences. It’s an immersive experience, using projection and media and narration and all those kinds of great ways that we can layer in the voice of that time and some storytelling, not just through screens you can touch everywhere.”

The museum will be divided roughly into three areas. The first is the existing 10,000 square foot current display area. These displays will be retained but refreshed using digital components, text updates, and new panel displays. The 2,700 square foot temporary exhibit area will be converted to permanent displays and focussed on the First Division’s history post-Vietnam. The last area to be considered is the lobby, the introduction to Big Red One.

The designs are not all finalized as yet and several new concepts are still being discussed. Suggestions such as a convoy that visitors could climb into and audio-visual ‘story pods’ that would allow visitors to communicate with soldiers are being considered.

Hebert hopes that the new exhibits will allow visitors to appreciate and recognize what First Division soldiers have done and why they have done it. “You’ll be able to listen to the soldiers explaining their service in their own words,” he said. “We can’t all be in the Army, but we can have empathy for our soldiers, we can be well-informed about who they are and what we ask them to do because we ask them to do a lot.

The new museum should be a jewel in the crown of military museums within America and should be a must-visit for anyone interested in military history.

HTML5 and CSS3 Interview Questions & Answers for UI Development.

HTML5 interview questions and Answers:

What is SVG and advantages of SVG?

SVG is a language for describing two-dimensional vector graphics in XML.

SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics
SVG is used to define vector-based graphics for the Web
SVG defines the graphics in XML format
SVG graphics do NOT lose any quality if they are zoomed or resized
Every element and every attribute in SVG files can be animated
SVG is a W3C recommendation

Code Example:

<?xml version=”1.0″ standalone=”no”?>
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN”
“http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd&#8221;&gt;

<svg xmlns=”http://www.w3.org/2000/svg&#8221; version=”1.1″>
<circle cx=”100″ cy=”50″ r=”40″ stroke=”black”
stroke-width=”2″ fill=”red” />
</svg>

Advantages:

Advantages of using SVG over other image formats (like JPEG and GIF) are:

SVG images can be created and edited with any text editor
SVG images can be searched, indexed, scripted, and compressed
SVG images are scalable
SVG images can be printed with high quality at any resolution
SVG images are zoomable (and the image can be zoomed without degradation)

Differences Between SVG and Canvas:

SVG is a language for describing 2D graphics in XML.

Canvas draws 2D graphics, on the fly (with a JavaScript).

SVG is XML based, which means that every element is available within the SVG DOM. You can attach JavaScript event handlers for an element.

In SVG, each drawn shape is remembered as an object. If attributes of an SVG object are changed, the browser can automatically re-render the shape.

Canvas is rendered pixel by pixel. In canvas, once the graphic is drawn, it is forgotten by the browser. If its position should be changed, the entire scene needs to be redrawn, including any objects that might have been covered by the graphic.

Difference between Transitional and Strict doctype.

Strict : This DTD contains all HTML elements and attributes, but does NOT INCLUDE presentational or deprecated elements (like font). Framesets are not allowed.

Transitional : This DTD contains all HTML elements and attributes, INCLUDING presentational and deprecated elements (like font). Framesets are not allowed.

What are New Semantic/Structural Elements
HTML5 offers new elements for better structure:
Tag Description
<article> Defines an article
<aside> Defines content aside from the page content
<bdi> Isolates a part of text that might be formatted in a different direction from other text outside it
<command> Defines a command button that a user can invoke
<details> Defines additional details that the user can view or hide
<dialog> Defines a dialog box or window
<summary> Defines a visible heading for a <details> element
<figure> Specifies self-contained content, like illustrations, diagrams, photos, code listings, etc.
<figcaption> Defines a caption for a <figure> element
<footer> Defines a footer for a document or section
<header> Defines a header for a document or section
<hgroup> Groups a set of <h1> to <h6> elements when a heading has multiple levels
<mark> Defines marked/highlighted text
<meter> Defines a scalar measurement within a known range (a gauge)
<nav> Defines navigation links
<progress> Represents the progress of a task
<ruby> Defines a ruby annotation (for East Asian typography)
<rt> Defines an explanation/pronunciation of characters (for East Asian typography)
<rp> Defines what to show in browsers that do not support ruby annotations
<section> Defines a section in a document
<time> Defines a date/time
<wbr> Defines a possible line-break

Q 1- What is the difference between HTML and HTML5 ?
Ans: HTML5 is nothing more then upgraded version of HTML where in HTML5 Lot of new future like Video, Audio/mp3, date select function , placeholder , Canvas, 2D/3D Graphics, Local SQL Database added so that no need to do external plugin like Flash player or other library
Q 2- What is the <!DOCTYPE> ? Is it necessary to use in HTML5 ?
Ans: The <!DOCTYPE> is an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML the page is written in. AND The <!DOCTYPE> tag does not have an end tag and It is not case sensitive.
The <!DOCTYPE> declaration must be the very first thing in HTML5 document, before the <html> tag. As In HTML 4.01, all <! DOCTYPE > declarations require a reference to a Document Type Definition (DTD), because HTML 4.01 was based on Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML). WHERE AS HTML5 is not based on SGML, and therefore does not require a reference to a Document Type Definition (DTD).

Q 7- What is the use of localStorage in HTML5?
Ans: Before HTML5 LocalStores was done with cookies. Cookies are not very good for large amounts of data, because they are passed on by every request to the server, so it was very slow and in-effective.
In HTML5, the data is NOT passed on by every server request, but used ONLY when asked for. It is possible to store large amounts of data without affecting the website’s performance.and The data is stored in different areas for different websites, and a website can only access data stored by itself.
And for creating localstores just need to call localStorage object like below we are storing name and address
1. <script type=“text/javascript”>
2. localStorage.name=“PHPZAG”;
3. document.write(localStorage.name);
4. </script>
5. <script type=“text/javascript”>

1. <script type=“text/javascript”>
2. sessionStorage.name=“PHPZAG”;
3. document.write(sessionStorage.name);
4. </script>
Q 9- What the use of Canvas Element in HTML5?
Ans: The canvas element is used to draw graphics images on a web page by using javascript like below
1. <canvas id=“pcdsCanvas” width=“500″ height=“400″>
2. </canvas>
3. <script type=“text/javascript”>
4. var pcdsCanvas=document.getElementById(“phpzagCanvas”);
5. var pcdsText=pcdsCanvas.getContext(“2d”);
6. pcdsText.fillStyle=“#82345c”;
7. pcdsText.fillRect(0,0,150,75);
8. </script>
Q 10- What purpose does HTML5 serve?
Ans: HTML5 is the proposed next standard for HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.0 and DOM Level 2 HTML. It aims to reduce the need for proprietary plug-in-based rich internet application (RIA) technologies such as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, Apache Pivot, and Sun JavaFX.
Q 11- What is the difference between HTMl5 Application cache and regular HTML browser cache?
Ans: HTML5 specification allows browsers to prefetch some or all of a website assets such as HTML files, images, CSS, JavaScript, and so on, while the client is connected. It is not necessary for the user to have accessed this content previously, for fetching this content. In other words, application cache can prefetch pages that have not been visited at all and are thereby unavailable in the regular browser cache. Prefetching files can speed up the site’s performance, though you are of course using bandwidth to download those files initially.
Q 12- HOW DO YOU PLAY A AUDIO USING HTML5?
Ans:
We can display audio using the tag as shown below:
1. <audio controls=“controls”>
2. <source src=“test.mp3″ type=“audio/mp3″ />
3. </audio>
Q 13- WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF STORAGE IN HTML5?
Ans:
HTML5 offers two new objects for storing data on the client:
LocalStorage – stores data with no time limit
1. <script type=“text/javascript”>
2. localStorage.lastname=“ZAG”;
3. document.write(localStorage.lastname);
4. </script>
SessionStorage – stores data for one session.The data is deleted when the user closes the browser window.
1. <script type=“text/javascript”>
2. sessionStorage.lastname=“ZAG”;
3. document.write(sessionStorage.lastname);
4. </script>
Q 14- HOW DO YOU PLAY A VIDEO USING HTML5?
Ans:
We can display video using the tag as shown below:
1. <video width=“320″ height=“240″ controls=“controls”>
2. <source src=“test.mp4″ type=“video/mp4″ />
3. </video>
Q 15- WHAT ARE THE NEW APIS PROVIDED BY THE HTML 5 STANDARD? GIVE A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF EACH?
Ans:

The canvas element: Canvas consists of a drawable region defined in HTML code with height and width attributes. JavaScript code may access the area through a full set of drawing functions similar to other common 2D APIs, thus allowing for dynamically generated graphics. Some anticipated uses of the canvas include building graphs, animations, games, and image composition.
• Timed media playback
• Offline storage database
• Document editing
• Drag-and-drop
• Cross-document messaging
• Browser history management
• MIME type and protocol handler registration
Q 16- WHAT OTHER ADVANTAGES DOES HTML5 HAVE?

(6) What is the <!DOCTYPE>? Is it mandatory to use in HTML5?
The <!DOCTYPE> is an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML the page is written in. The <!DOCTYPE> tag does not have an end tag. It is not case sensitive.

elements
For embedded content, such as a plug-in
<track> For text tracks used in mediaplayers
(8) What is the major improvement with HTML5 in reference to Flash?
Flash is not supported by major mobile devices such as iPad, iPhone and universal android applications. Those mobile devices have lack of support for installing flash plugins. HTML5 is supported by all the devices, apps and browser including Apple and Android products. Compared to Flash, HTML5 is very secured and protected. That eliminates major concerns that we have seen with Flash.
(10) What is the sessionStorage Object in html5 ? How you can create and access that?
The HTML5 sessionStorage object stores the data for one session. The data is deleted when the user closes the browser window. We can create and access a sessionStorage, created “name” as session

sessionStorage.name=“DGTECH”;
document.write(sessionStorage.name);
</script>

It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo.  The ones that really mattered.  Full of darkness and danger, they were.  And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end.  Because how could the end be happy?  How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened?  But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow.  Even darkness must pass.  A new day will come.  And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer.  Those were the stories that stayed with you.  That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why.  But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand.  I know now.  Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t.  They kept going.  Because they were holding on to something.

1 What is WordPress?

The WordPress web site defines WordPress as “web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. “ That describes it in the simplest form possible though I will try to expand on that. WordPress is the platform that we currently use for the majority of all client web sites. It was originally used for blogs but has since expanded to be used for full web sites, both personal and business. The main reason people prefer using WordPress now is that it is extremely easy to use, even for a beginner. Once the site is setup (that is where we come in) you will be able to update the content of your web site yourself, without having to know any programming at all! If you are able to create a document in Microsoft Word then you will be bale to update your web site, it is that easy.
WordPress also allows your site to be expanded with incredible features thanks to the many plugins available. We will determine at the start of the project what you will need and everything will be setup and customized for you.

2 Tell me Is a web site on WordPress secure?

Out of the box WordPress is secure and you should not have to worry about any problems with your site. While we agree with that sentiment it does not stop us from taking extra steps to be positive your site will be secure. Part of the process of creating your site involves us taking extra measures to be sure your site will be secure for you. There are many things we will do that you will never need to understand, but unlike many design firms we will not just do a basic install and walk away. This will help prevent attacks against your web site (something that is not very common to begin with though).
There is a common myth that WordPress web sites are more prone to be attacked or hacked than a normal web site. After working on nothing but WordPress sites and blogs for the past three years I have only had to go in and repair a single site and that was due to a problem with the host of the site and not the site itself. Major businesses now use WordPress for their web sites, I am sure they would not do so if they felt it was not secure.

3 What is the difference between characters 23 and x23?

The first one is octal 23, the second is hex 23.

4 How come the code <?php print Contents: $ arr[1]; ?> works, but <?php print Contents: $ arr[1][2]; ?> doesnt for two-dimensional array of mine?

Any time you have an array with more than one dimension, complex parsing syntax is required. print “Contents: {$ arr[1][2]}” would’ve worked. />

5 Tell me Would you initialize your strings with single quotes or double quotes?

Since the data inside the single-quoted string is not parsed for variable substitution, it’s always a better idea speed-wise to initialize a string with single quotes, unless you specifically need variable substitution.

6 Do you know Why doesnt the following code print the newline properly?

<?php
$ str = ‘Hello, there.nHow are you?nThanks for visiting Us’;
print $ str;
?>
Because inside the single quotes the n character is not interpreted as newline, just as a sequence of two characters – and n.

7 How to call a constructor for a parent class?

parent::constructor($ value)

8 Tell me Are objects passed by value or by reference?

Everything is passed by value.

9 What is the difference between accessing a class method via -> and via ::?

:: is allowed to access methods that can perform static operations, i.e. those, which do not require object initialization.

10 Suppose If the variable $ a is equal to 5 and variable $ b is equal to character a, whats the value of $ $ b?

100, it’s a reference to existing variable.

11 How to find out the number of parameters passed into function?

func_num_args() function returns the number of parameters passed in.

12 What is the ternary conditional operator in PHP?

Expression preceding the ? is evaluated, if it’s true, then the expression preceding the : is executed, otherwise, the expression following : is executed.

13 Explain When are you supposed to use endif to end the conditional statement?

When the original if was followed by : and then the code block without braces.

14 Explain Will comparison of string 10″ and integer 11 work in PHP?

Yes, internally PHP will cast everything to the integer type, so numbers 10 and 11 will be compared.

15 How to pass a variable by value in WordPress?

Just like in C++, put an ampersand in front of it, like $ a = &$ b

16 How to define a constant?

17 Do you know Would I use print $ a dollars or {$ a} dollars to print out the amount of dollars in this example?

In this example it wouldn’t matter, since the variable is all by itself, but if you were to print something like “{$ a},000,000 mln dollars”, then you definitely need to use the braces.

18 Suppose I am trying to assign a variable the value of 0123, but it keeps coming up with a different number, whats the problem?

PHP Interpreter treats numbers beginning with 0 as octal. Look at the similar PHP interview questions for more numeric problems.

23 Who is the founder of WordPress?

Matthew Charles Mullenweg.

24 What if I need help after the project?

That is what we are here for! You will get full training at the conclusion of the project and we will be available for email support following the project when needed. Additional one on one training will be available at an additional cost if needed.
Coming soon we will be launching a new members support area here on the web site that will include full training for clients only. This will include a number of PDF downloads, tutorials and video training. This will be available to all past and future clients.

25 Are there any limitations to a WordPress web site?

Not that we have found yet. You can use WordPress for e-commerce sites, membership sites, photo galleries and any other type of site you can think of. The web site is created using the same html code as any other site so there are no limitations there either. I have yet to find a reason not to use WordPress for any client site.

26 Do I need to have a blog in order to use WordPress for my site?

WordPress was originally used as blogging software (and still is) though it has since become popular for web sites also. You do not need to include a blog on your web site in order to use WordPress. We have created a number of sites that do not have any blog at all but the client wanted the ability to update content themselves so we used WordPress.
We do suggest having a blog because it will help with your search engine optimization. Though we only suggest that if you plan on updating the blog on a regular basis, otherwise having a blog without any updates is not going to do you any good.

27 Will using WordPress help my site show up on Google?

Yes. That is one of the major selling points of using WordPress is that it includes excellent built in search engine optimization (SEO). With a normal site you would need to include all of the SEO yourself (or hire someone). While it is still recommended that you hire someone for a full SEO campaign if needed, the built in SEO capabilities of WordPress more than enough to get you started.
We will also install additional plugins to help with your SEO when you first launch the site. These are popular plugins that are known to help your rank on search engines such as Google and Bing.

28 Do I need to know any programming to make updates?

To initially setup a site and customize it you will, though you don’t need to worry about that because that is what we are doing for you. Once the site is setup we will train you on how to perform the updates (very simple) and you will be good to go. In order to perform the content updates you may need in the future you will not need to know any programming at all. I compared it earlier to using Microsoft Word and it really is that easy!
Forget about having to hire a programmer to make simple text updates on your site from now on, you can go in and do it yourself in a matter of minutes.

29 Will I have the ability to update my own content?

That depends on the site/project itself. We have created sites where almost every aspect could be edited by the client (content, navigation, photos, forms, etc) and others where it was a simple setup to allow for the main content areas to be edited. This is something we will discuss when planning the project and determine what your need will be. At the very least you will be able to edit the site content yourself and the ability to add/remove photos.

30. How to hide the top admin bar at the frontend of wordpress 3.4?

Add the below mentioned code in the theme(active) function.php add_filter(‘show_admin_bar’, ‘__return_false’);

(or)

Add the below code in the active theme stylesheet

#wpadminbar {

display: none; visibility: hidden;

}
31. In PHP, what are magic methods and how are they used?

PHP functions that start with a double underscore – a “__” – are called magic functions (and/or methods) in PHP. They are functions that are always defined inside classes, and are not stand-alone (outside of classes) functions. The magic functions available in PHP are: __construct(), __destruct(), __call(), __callStatic(), __get(), __set(), __isset(), __unset(), __sleep(), __wakeup(), __toString(), __invoke(), __set_state(), __clone(), and __autoload().
32. Run Any Query on the Database for WordPress

The query function allows you to execute any SQL query on the WordPress database. It is best to use a more specific function (see below), however, for SELECT queries.

 <?php $ wpdb->query('query'); ?>

33.What are the Feature of WordPress?

  • Simplicity Simplicity makes it possible for you to get online and get publishing, quickly. Nothing should get in the way of you getting your website up and your content out there. WordPress is built to make that happen.
  • Flexibility With WordPress, you can create any type of website you want: a personal blog or website, a photoblog, a business website, a professional portfolio, a government website, a magazine or news website, an online community, even a network of websites. You can make your website beautiful with themes, and extend it with plugins. You can even build your very own application.
  • Publish with Ease If you’ve ever created a document, you’re already a whizz at creating content with WordPress. You can create Posts and Pages, format them easily, insert media, and with the click of a button your content is live and on the web.
  • Publishing Tools WordPress makes it easy for you to manage your content. Create drafts, schedule publication, and look at your post revisions. Make your content public or private, and secure posts and pages with a password.
  • User Management Not everyone requires the same access to your website. Administrators manage the site, editors work with content, authors and contributors write that content, and subscribers have a profile that they can manage. This lets you have a variety of contributors to your website, and let others simply be part of your community.
  • Media Management They say a picture says a thousand words, which is why it’s important for you to be able to quickly and easily upload images and media to WordPress. Drag and drop your media into the uploader to add it to your website. Add alt text, captions, and titles, and insert images and galleries into your content. We’ve even added a few image editing tools you can have fun with.
  • Full Standards Compliance Every piece of WordPress generated code is in full compliance with the standards set by the W3C. This means that your website will work in today’s browser, while maintaining forward compatibility with the next generation of browser. Your website is a beautiful thing, now and in the future.
  • Easy Theme System WordPress comes bundled with two default themes, but if they aren’t for you there’s a theme directory with thousands of themes for you to create a beautiful website. None of those to your taste? Upload your own theme with the click of a button. It only takes a few seconds for you to give your website a complete makeover.
  • Extend with Plugins WordPress comes packed full of features for every user, for every other feature there’s a plugin directory with thousands of plugins. Add complex galleries, social networking, forums, social media widgets, spam protection, calendars, fine-tune controls for search engine optimization, and forms.
  • Built-in Comments Your blog is your home, and comments provide a space for your friends and followers to engage with your content. WordPress’s comment tools give you everything you need to be a forum for discussion and to moderate that discussion.
  • Search Engine Optimized When the head of Google’s web spam team says that WordPress is a great choice, taking care of 80-90% of the mechanics of search engine optimization for you, you know you’re on to a good thing. For more fine-grained SEO control, there are plenty of SEO plugins to take care of that for you.
  • Multilingual WordPress is available in more than 70 languages. If you or the person you’re building the website for would prefer to use WordPress in a language other than English, that’s easy to do.
  • Easy Installation and Upgrades WordPress has always been easy to install and upgrade. If you’re happy using an FTP program, you can create a database, upload WordPress using FTP, and run the installer. Not familiar with FTP? Plenty of web hosts offer one-click WordPress installers that let you install WordPress with, well, just one click!
  • Importers Using blog or website software that you aren’t happy with? Running your blog on a hosted service that’s about to shut down? WordPress comes with importers for blogger, LiveJournal, Movable Type, TypePad, Tumblr, and WordPress. If you’re ready to make the move, we’ve made it easy for you.
  • Own Your Data Hosted services come and go. If you’ve ever used a service that disappeared, you know how traumatic that can be. If you’ve ever seen adverts appear on your website, you’ve probably been pretty annoyed. Using WordPress means no one has access to your content. Own your data, all of it – your website, your content, your data.
  • Freedom WordPress is licensed under the GPL which was created to protect your freedoms. You are free to use WordPress in any way you choose: install it, use it, modify it, distribute it. Software freedom is the foundation that WordPress is built on.
  • Community As the most popular open source CMS on the web, WordPress has a vibrant and supportive community. Ask a question on the support forums and get help from a volunteer, attend a WordCamp or Meetup to learn more about WordPress, read blogs posts and tutorials about WordPress. Community is at the heart of WordPress, making it what it is today.
  • Contribute You can be WordPress too! Help to build WordPress, answer questions on the support forums, write documentation, translate WordPress into your language, speak at a WordCamp, write about WordPress on your blog. Whatever your skill, we’d love to have you!

Developer Features

For developers, we’ve got lots of goodies packed under the hood that you can use to extend WordPress in whatever direction takes your fancy.

  • Plugin System The WordPress APIs make it possible for you to create plugins to extend WordPress. WordPress’s extensibility lies in the thousands of hooks at your disposal. Once you’ve created your plugin, we’ve even got a plugin repository for you to host it on.
  • Theme System Create WordPress themes for clients, customers, and for WordPress users. The WordPress API provides the extensibility to create themes as simple or as complex as you wish. If you want to give your theme away for free you can give it to users in the Theme Repository
  • Application Framework If you want to build an application, WordPress can help with that too. Under the hood WordPress provides a lot of the features that your app will need, things like translations, user management, HTTP requests, databases, URL routing and much, much more.
  • Custom Content Types WordPress comes with default content types, but for more flexibility you can add a few lines of code to create your own custom post types, taxonomies, and metadata. Take WordPress in whatever direction you wish.
  • The Latest Libraries WordPress comes with the latest script libraries for you to make use of. These include jQuery, Plupload, Underscore.js and Backbone.js. We’re always on the lookout for new tools that developers can use to make a better experience for our users.

35. What is hooks and types of hooks in wordpress?

Hooks are provided by WordPress to allow your plugin to ‘hook into’ the rest of WordPress; that is, to call functions in your plugin at specific times, and thereby set your plugin in motion. There are two kinds of hooks:

  1. Actions: Actions are the hooks that the WordPress core launches at specific points during execution, or when specific events occur. Your plugin can specify that one or more of its PHP functions are executed at these points, using the Action API.
  2. Filters: Filters are the hooks that WordPress launches to modify text of various types before adding it to the database or sending it to the browser screen. Your plugin can specify that one or more of its PHP functions is executed to modify specific types of text at these times, using the Filter API.

Actions Functions

  • has_action()
  • add_action()
  • do_action()
  • do_action_ref_array()
  • did_action()
  • remove_action()
  • remove_all_actions()

Filter Functions

  • has_filter()
  • add_filter()
  • apply_filters()
  • apply_filters_ref_array()
  • current_filter()
  • merge_filters()
  • remove_filter()
  • remove_all_filters()

35. Does the 644 permissions on wp-config.php compromise the username and password to all other users on my shared server?

This is a limitation of the way PHP is set up on your server. If you previously used MovableType, Perl was probably set up with suexec so Movable Type executed as your user. In this case, PHP is running as the web server user, which is why it has to be at least 444. There is phpsuexec but it seems many hosts don’t use it.

However this is often not an issue on modern shared hosts because even though the file is “world” readable each account is set up with a “jailshell” which keeps people locked in their home directory, and PHP can be easily modified with an open_basedir restriction to keep people from writing PHP scripts to read your files. If you are really concerned, you should contact your host to see what measures they are taking.

How do I prevent my images from being hot-linked by another website?

You can use your .htaccess file to protect images from being hot linked, or, in other words, being linked-to from other websites. This can be a drain on your bandwidth, because if someone links directly to the image on your site, then you lose the bandwidth.

How do I prevent comment flooding?

Comment flooding is when a lot of comments (probably spam) are posted to your website in a very short duration of time. This is only one aspect of the broader problem of comment spam in general, but it can quickly overwhelm a moderator’s ability to manually delete the offending comments.

WordPress manages the worst floods automatically by default. Any commenters from the same IP or e-mail address (other than registered users with manage_options capabilities) that post within 15 seconds of their last comment gets their comment discarded. The time setting can be changed by a number of plugins that extend this functionality. You might also consider one of the many broader spam blocking plugins, such as Akismet, or even turning your comment system over to Disqus.

You could also just change the time setting by directly hacking the core file, but the correct way would be to create and install a very basic plugin and insert the following code:

function dam_the_flood( $ dam_it, $ time_last, $ time_new ) {

if ( ($ time_new – $ time_last) < 300 ) // time interval is 300

return true; // seconds

return false;

}

add_filter(‘comment_flood_filter’, ‘dam_the_flood’, 10, 3);

How do I redirect users back to my blog’s main page after they login?

By default, WordPress reroutes a registered user to the Administration Panels after they log into the blog. To change the page, there are WordPress Plugins that can handle the redirect, or you can set the Theme function to handle it. See Function_Reference/wp_login_url.

Why can’t I delete the uncategorized Category?

Any Category with a non-zero value for # of Posts in the Administration > Manage > Categories cannot be deleted. The uncategorized Category might be assigned to some Posts, but all Pages are assigned the uncategorized Category. So even though there may be no posts assigned to the uncategorized Category, Pages are included in the count of # of Posts.

The default category cannot be deleted even if it is empty, however you can specify your default categories for posts or links on the Options – Writing page of the admin panel.

How can I have a static front page and posts display on a page called Blog?

If using WordPress as a CMS, you might want to present readers with a static front page, and then display your posts on another page called Blog. To accomplish that follow these instructions:

Create a Page and use “My Front Page” for the Page Title. Of course, in the content for that Page, you can enter the information you want presented on your site’s front page (see example below if you want to display a post).

Create a Page and call it Blog. Nothing needs to be entered in the content field of this Page.

In Administration > Settings > Reading set the Front page displays to A static page, and select My Front Page for Front page:, and select Blog for the Posts page:.

If you want to further customize your front page, you can create a Template, and fit it to meet your needs:

With the help of the Template Hierarchy article, determine what Template is normally used to display your Pages (e.g. page.php or index.php).

Copy that template to myfront.php. If you were using the WordPress Default theme you would copy wp-content/themes/default/page.php to wp-content/themes/default/myfront.php.

In Administration > Appearance > Editor, edit the myfront.php and change the beginning of the file from:

<?php

/**

* @package WordPress

* @subpackage Default_Theme

*/

to:

<?php

/*

Template Name: MyFront

*/

?>

Then access the Page called Front in Administration > Page > Edit and set the Template to MyFront.

Once that’s all working, begin changing myfront.php to make it look like what you want.

That’s it. You are done.

Use this example for the ‘MyFront’ Page Template if you want to display one post, instead of the Page content, on your ‘static front page’:

<?php

/*

Template Name: MyFront

*/

?>

<?php get_header(); ?>

<div id=”content”>

<?php

query_posts(‘p=1′); //set p=x where x is post id of post you want to see or use query_posts(‘cat=1&posts_per_page=1); to show one post from Category 1

if (have_posts()) : ?>

<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

<div <?php post_class() ?> id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>

<h2><a href=”<?php the_permalink() ?>” rel=”bookmark” title=”Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>”><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>

<small><?php the_time(‘F jS, Y’) ?> <!– by <?php the_author() ?> –></small>

<div class=”entry”>

<?php the_content(‘Read the rest of this entry »’); ?>

</div>

<p class=”postmetadata”><?php the_tags(‘Tags: ‘, ‘, ‘, ‘<br />’); ?> Posted in <?php the_category(‘, ‘) ?> | <?php edit_post_link(‘Edit’, ”, ‘ | ‘); ?> <?php comments_popup_link(‘No Comments »’, ’1 Comment »’, ‘% Comments »’); ?></p>

</div>

<?php endwhile; ?>

<div class=”navigation”>

<div class=”alignleft”><?php next_posts_link(‘« Older Entries’) ?></div>

<div class=”alignright”><?php previous_posts_link(‘Newer Entries »’) ?></div>

</div>

<?php else : ?>

<h2 class=”center”>Not Found</h2>

<p class=”center”>Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.</p>

<?php get_search_form(); ?>

<?php endif; ?>

</div>

<?php get_sidebar(); ?>

<?php get_footer(); ?>

How do I determine a Post, Page, Category, Tag, Link, Link Category, or User ID?

Sometimes it is necessary to know the ID of a particular Post, Page, Category, Tag, Link, Link Category, or User. To determine that ID, use one of these method:

Look in your browser status bar for the ID:

Visit the related ‘Edit’ screen in your Administration Panel. For instance in the case of Posts visit Posts->Edit, for Pages visit Pages->Edit, and for Categories visit Posts->Categories.

Now hover your mouse over the ‘item’ you need the ID. In the case of Pages, hover over that particular Page’s title in the Title column and for Categories hover over the Categories Name in the Name column.

Look at the status bar (at the bottom of your browser) and the you will find at the end of the line something like “post=123″ or “cat_ID=67″. In these cases, 123 is the Page ID, and 67 is the Category ID.

Install a plugin:

Install and activate Reveal IDs for WP Admin, Simply Show IDs, or ShowID for Post/Page/Category/Tag/Comment.

Find the ID displayed with each item.

How can I change what appears between Categories when I post in more than one Category?

To configure the way the post’s categories display, open the index.php file and find the line <div class meta>. There you will see the following code:

<?php the_category() ?>

Inside of the parentheses ( ) and quote marks, add or change this to reflect the new look you desire.

If you would like to have commas between the categories, the tag should read:

<?php the_category(‘,’) ?>

If you would like to have an arrow, the tag would look like this:

<?php the_category(‘ > ‘) ?>

If you would like to have a bullet, the tag would look like this:

<?php the_category(‘ &bull; ‘) ?>

If you would like the “pipe” ( | ) between the categories, the tag would look like this:

<?php the_category(‘ | ‘) ?>

Use your imagination and creativity to make the separations in the categories look any way you like.

Why are all the comments being moderated?

Go to the Options > Discussion panel and make sure that An administrator must approve the comment (regardless of any matches below) is unchecked. With that option selected, all comments are sent to the moderation queue to await approval. Make sure that Hold a comment in the queue if it contains more than x links is not blank and contains a number higher than zero. If this value is blank or zero, all comments containing links will be moderated. If the option mentioned above is unchecked, the link moderation value is higher than zero, and you still have this problem, your Spam Words list probably has blank lines, punctuation marks, or single letters between the information in the list. There should be spaces between the listed items or each item must be on its own line. If you have done this, then upgrade the comment spam plugins you have installed. If this continues to be a problem, deactivate the comment spam plugins one by one to determine the culprit and contact the plugin author for help.

How do I disable comments?

First, unchecked Allow people to post comments on the article on the Options > Discussion panel. This will only disable comments on future posts. Now, to completely disable comments, you will have to edit each past post and uncheck Allow Comments from the Write Post SubPanel. Alternatively, you could run this MySQL query from the command line on a shell account or using phpMyAdmin: UPDATE wp_posts SET comment_status=”closed”;

If your goal is to permanently disable comments, then you should delete the wp-comments-post.php file as well.

How do I disable trackbacks and pingbacks?

First, unchecked Allow link notifications from other Weblogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.) on the Options > Discussion panel. This will only disable trackbacks and pingbacks on future posts. Now, to completely disable trackbacks and pingbacks, you will have to edit each past post and uncheck Allow Pings from the Write Post SubPanel. Alternatively, run this MySQL query from the command line on a shell account or using PHPMyAdmin: UPDATE wp_posts SET ping_status=”closed”;

If your goal is to permanently disable trackbacks and pingbacks, then you should delete the wp-trackback.php file as well.

How do I change the site admin name?

To change your Admin Name, in the Administration Panel, choose the Users->Your Profile tab. Make your changes there. However, you are not able to change the username from within the Administration panel. In order to do this you must directly edit the MySQL database, however this is not recommended as your username is not often seen by other users.

How do I find the absolute path I need for uploading images?

To find the absolute path of a page, absolutepath.zip will help you. Download, unzip, ftp to the location of the page / image / directory and then call the file in your browser – http://www.example.com/images/absolutepath.php

Can I rename the WordPress folder?

If you have not already installed WordPress, you can rename the folder with the WordPress files, before, or even after uploading the files.

If you have already installed WordPress, and you want to rename the folder, login to the weblog as the administrator and change the following settings in Settings > General:

WordPress address (URI):

Blog address (URI):

Once you have done this, you can rename the directory or folder with the WordPress files in it.

How can I hide my blog from people?

Whether you are testing a new version of WordPress, setting up a new blog or have some other reason to limit access, the following information may help you keep unwanted visitors out.

Apache

There is no guaranteed way to do this. You can use the .htaccess file (which also contains your permalink code) to check for certain IP addresses and prevent them from viewing your site. This will only stop the IP address, not the person, so if they have access to an allowed IP address, they can get to your page. One tutorial for this is located at Clockwatchers.com

An .htaccess file can also be used to prevent others from “hot-linking” to your images (bandwidth theft) or to set up a password protected blog.

Apache Basic Authentication

To require a password to access your site using .htaccess and .htpasswd: Clockwatchers.com .htpasswd.

Tools that help you create the files necessary to password protect your site: Clockwatchers.com .htaccess And .htpasswd Tools

Note: When your site is accessed the password is encoded weakly using Base64 and can be easily intercepted and decoded.

Windows IIS Basic Authentication

To require a password if your site is hosted on IIS, you can deselect Allow Anonymous Access and select Basic Authentication. You’ll also need to have a username with a password.

Note: When your site is accessed the password is encoded weakly using Base64 and can be easily intercepted and decoded.

How can I get WordPress working when I’m behind a reverse proxy?

In some setups, it’s necessary to use something other than the HTTP_HOST header to generate URLs. Reverse proxies take the original request and send it to one of a group of servers. To do so, it overwrites the HTTP_HOST with the internal server’s domain. When that domain is not publicly accessible, at best your images might not load correctly, at worst, you’ll be stuck in a redirect loop. To fix this, figure out which header has the right domain name and add a line to your wp-config.php file that overwrites HTTP_HOST with the correct hostname.

If you need to use SERVER_NAME, add this line to wp-config.php:

$ _SERVER[‘HTTP_HOST’] = $ _SERVER[‘SERVER_NAME’];

If you need to use HTTP_X_FORWARDED_HOST, add this line to wp-config.php:

$ _SERVER[‘HTTP_HOST’] = $ _SERVER[‘HTTP_X_FORWARDED_HOST’];

Do I really need MySQL?

You certainly need the MySQL database server to power your WordPress blog. In fact, WordPress only supports the MySQL database server. Listed are the PHP and MySQL requirements:

WordPress server requirements for Version 3.2:

PHP version 5.2.4 or greater

MySQL version 5.0.15 or greater

(Optional)(Required for MultiSite) Apache mod_rewrite module (for clean URIs known as Permalinks)

Can I use a database other than MySQL?

Other databases are not supported at the moment.

There are several other excellent database storage engines, such as PostgreSQL and SQLite that WordPress is interested in supporting in the future. Supporting multiple databases is trickier than it sounds and is not under active development, although there are plenty of architectural discussions about the best approach to take. Approaches for increasing the number of supported databases are discussed at Using Alternative Databases. There is a PostgreSQL port of WordPress available called WordPress-Pg.

Why does WordPress use MySQL?

MySQL is extremely fast. It is also the most widely available database server in the world. Open-source and free, MySQL is supported by thousands of low-cost Linux (and Windows!) hosts, which means a very low barrier to entry for anyone wanting to start a WordPress (or database-driven) website. MySQL’s documentation is useful, cogent and thorough. (Note: it may be intimidating if you are new to all this.) Add to all that the fact that users are able to directly manipulate MySQL with phpMyAdmin, developed expressly for that purpose, and it is obvious that MySQL is the best choice. Of course, WordPress insists on the best.

What is XML-RPC?
Overview

XML-RPC is a Remote Procedure Calling protocol that works over the Internet.

An XML-RPC message is an HTTP-POST request. The body of the request is in XML. A procedure executes on the server and the value it returns is also formatted in XML.

Procedure parameters can be scalars, numbers, strings, dates, etc.; and can also be complex record and list structures.

Request example

Here’s an example of an XML-RPC request:

POST /RPC2 HTTP/1.0
User-Agent: Frontier/5.1.2 (WinNT)
Host: betty.userland.com
Content-Type: text/xml
Content-length: 181

examples.getStateName 41

Header requirements

The format of the URI in the first line of the header is not specified. For example, it could be empty, a single slash, if the server is only handling XML-RPC calls. However, if the server is handling a mix of incoming HTTP requests, we allow the URI to help route the request to the code that handles XML-RPC requests. (In the example, the URI is /RPC2, telling the server to route the request to the “RPC2″ responder.)

A User-Agent and Host must be specified.

The Content-Type is text/xml.

The Content-Length must be specified and must be correct.

Payload format

The payload is in XML, a single structure.

The must contain a sub-item, a string, containing the name of the method to be called. The string may only contain identifier characters, upper and lower-case A-Z, the numeric characters, 0-9, underscore, dot, colon and slash. It’s entirely up to the server to decide how to interpret the characters in a methodName.

For example, the methodName could be the name of a file containing a script that executes on an incoming request. It could be the name of a cell in a database table. Or it could be a path to a file contained within a hierarchy of folders and files.

If the procedure call has parameters, the must contain a sub-item. The sub-item can contain any number of s, each of which has a .

Scalar s

s can be scalars, type is indicated by nesting the value inside one of the tags listed in this table:

And He was Grieved by Their Misery

I hope you are experiencing a year of Bible study with daily devotions or a one-year Bible reading program.  As I’ve previously quoted in Be the One in Ten Christians That Have , only 1-3 in 10 Christians have ever read their Bible in it’s entirity. 

Everytime I read the Bible, important messages pop out at me and some I’ve never heard.  It’s like listening to Earl’s sermons every Sunday twice, (I stay for both services).  Sometimes I completely miss something the first go-round and pick up on it the second pass.  I used to just think that I was at fault in some way – was I not paying attention?  But no, that is not so.  Let me share with you how God works through the Holy Spirit to enlighten us, and even when we need to hear it!

God the Father created, Jesus saved, The Holy Spirit enlightens, directs and guides.

Mother's Day 2013

Mother’s Day 2013

On May 12, 2013, Earl preached the sermon, How to Recognize the Holy Spirit .  I wanted to share that sermon with you via the link, because I believe it will enlighten all who read it about the exact relationship The Holy Spirit has with us – if only we would listen and be led by Him.

Part of The Holy Spirit’s obligation to us is to help us know God better.  The Holy Spirit came after Jesus ascended into heaven and as promised by Christ, The Holy Spirit came to remind the desciples of all that Jesus had done and said and this is where we get the words of the New Testament.  When reading the Bible, The Holy Spirit will reveal or enlighten us to what we are supposed to hear at that time in our life.  He guides us in our learning of our Creator and our Savior.

So getting back to my daily Bible reading….long way around, I have experienced sadness and grief over the illnesses of folks in our church and the passing of some very young people that the loss is far too hard to comprehend.  I have had conversations with people who blame God, other folks that cannot comprehend how a loving God could possibly allow such things to happen.  They are angry, and some individuals that I know have even turned their backs on God. 

While praying and asking God for help in these extremely difficult cases, I asked God for guidance in how to bring His peace to grieving people.  Was there anything that I could say or would I make it worse?

My God, who created me, also gave me a Savior in Jesus Christ, so that I don’t have to pay for my sins.  God then gave me His Spirit to help me as I traverse along this life on earth with all His other created beings.  But we all have choices to make about where we go, who we have as friends and what we do – and a myriad of other choices.  All these free choices can sometimes bring us friends or enemies, peace or consternation, wellness or illness, good or evil.  And the entire fall of creation brings with it dire consequences even when we are obeying God.  Jesus said we would always have the poor and hungry among us – that there would always be wars and natural disasters.  Even Jesus being perfect, suffered hunger and terrible storms in His life due to the sin of the world.

But as I was reading Judges 10:15-16, I found a message that the Holy Spirit used to speak to me. “But the Israelites pleaded with the Lord and said, “We have sinned.  Punish us as you see fit, only rescue us today from our enemies.” “Then the Israelites put aside their foreign gods and served the Lord. And he was grieved by their misery.”   Not only is God with us in all that we go through in this life, but when we admit our sinfulness and repent, God grieves for us.  He may even step in and remove the consequences, but even if He chooses not to do so, He will help us through it.  He will lead us to where we have to go to do our Father’s work.  We can be strong and courageous in this life when we rely on His presence to pull us through the seemingly inpossible.  We can give Him praise and glory for the pit we’ve found ourselves in, not just resentment, anger and dismissal of His love and will for us.

So as I pray for people who find themselves in such difficult times, and as the Holy Spirit gives me opportunity, I will remind them that God grieves with us in our misery.  Maybe they will feel the presence of God surrounding them, uplifting them and holding on to them.  I pray that they will feel Him pulling them through the hardships with all the tenderness of His tears and the strength of His love, leading them and guiding them to a fuller and stronger life in Christ.

Be at peace.

Let not your hearts be troubled.  Believe in God; believe also in me.  In my Father’s house are many rooms.  If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.  And you know the way to where I am going…  I am the way, and the truth, and the life.

— Jesus of Nazareth
(John 14:1-6, ESV).

By his death and resurrection, Christ proved that he is Lord of all.  He kept his promise, and will keep every promise.  He works to prepare a place for us where all that is wrong will be made right.  And he will come again.

Be at peace.  The Lord is risen!

Week 5 Q&A

I’ll dive right in to the inbox and see what people are freaking out about today…

Felix, Kentucky: I’ve been offered Mike Trout for Andrew McCutchen in a keeper league. This is an absolute deal right? 

Felix, McCutchen is a young outfielder with 30/30 potential. He’s on the same side of his prime as Trout, and has similar upside. Maybe in three years, if Trout becomes exactly what scouts hope, you might do this deal. But for the next two years at least, I’d rather have McCutchen. I’ve been saying, a likely development scale for Trout is something like Austin Jackson next year, Shane Victorino in 2014 and then in 2015 something like BJ Upton plus 40-50 points of average. 

Jason, New Hampshire: I’m 1-3 and own Harper in a keeper league, what should I expect back in a trade? 

First of all, its not like he’s all hype anymore. Harper is actually producing. That being said, if you are dead set on trading him, in a keeper league, he should command a proven producing bat, or a solid, reliable pitcher. I might start out by looking at guys like Ben Zobrist or perhaps Michael Young and on the pitching side, maybe target a buy-low like Adam Wainwright, who I expect to be pretty good, and keep getting better. 

Hallie, Texas: You said there was a new “Snakes and Ladders” coming… 

I did, and there is. I’ve been battling some computer issues so my posting chances have been sporadic. It will be done soon. 

Merlin, California: I was offered Mark Reynolds for Emilio Bonifacio in a 14-team standard scoring points league. The league subtracts 0.25 points for strikeouts, but its four points for a home run, plus another one for the runs scored and one for the RBI, so homers are really worth six. Would you do this?

That’s a tough one. Preseason, I would have probably preferred Reynolds, and I don’t think much has changed. I’d be much more hesitant on this because of Reynolds start to the year, but he is hitting now and in a points league, I’d probably still take Reynolds, but by a hair.

Carter, New York: Trade Adam Dunn while he’s mashing? 

Dunn is doing what we knew he would. He’s hitting for power and not much else. I think you trade him if you’ve got excess power in a roto league, but I expect him to hit 25-35 home runs, so make sure you get adequate value back.

Kim, Florida: Football question, if you dont mind, where would you draft the tight ends? It looks like a deep position, but also top heavy.

Well, I won’t be taking one of the top few because, after what Rob Gronkowski did last year, they will go much earlier than they should. I know people targeting Gronk in the second round, and Jimmy Graham not far behind. That being said, if I had to pick one of them, I wouldn’t go any earlier than late third or early fourth round, but they won’t still be available there. I’m going to be taking mine much much later, probably looking long and hard at Jacob Tamme, who has history with Peyton Manning already. 

Gabriel, London: I have the #1 overall pick and can’t decide between the top four RB. Help?

Well, if it was me, it’d be Ray Rice… I say that because Arian Foster is going to lose some carries to Ben Tate. That’s just going to happen. Leshean McCoy is going to lose touchdowns to Michael Vick and he loses productivity when Vick is out, which he will be for 3-4 games this year. FInally, Maurice Jones-Drew is the only proven player on that offense, so if I was playing defense, I’d stack the box and make Blaine Gabbert beat me. 

That’s it for now. As I said, Snakes and Ladders coming soon.
