Today is only yesterday's tomorrow.                                                                   

With a lot of help


I got my FavIcon at http://www.favicon.co.uk

Circle of Hands is written by Ken Hensley1 and it is Ken Hensley who says2

I didn’t know David well personally but I loved writing for him and working with him and I will never forget him. Gods knows, I remember every time I try to sing those songs that he made his own!

It is Lord Byron (born as David Garrick) that made me use “Today is only Yesterday’s Tomorrow”.

The plugins without which I think I will not be able to write by:

     Anarchy Media Player
     HTML Special Characters Helper
     Quotes Collection [ I needed another instance of it and cloned it to Jargon Collection ]
     Exec-PHP
     Text Hover
     WP-Footnotes

The plugins which made me confident against the bad ones in the cloud :-)
     Bad Behavior
     WP Security Scan

I like the minimal look. The default WP dashboard had TMI These two beauties did an efficient job of cleaning:
     Dashboard Editor
     Ozh’ Admin Drop Down Menu

These helped me to structure the content better:
     Flexi Pages Widget
     WP-PageNavi

Speaking of content, displaying code can be a pain. These two rock! :
     Postable  [ Pointed by ]
     SyntaxHighlighter Evolved

Last but certainly the most cute one, Hello Dolly!

The Java Scripts I use:

Switch Content script from Dynamic Drive
DHTML Tooltips, a cross browser tooptip by Walter Zorn

Offline, Online, Offline …

Online is all very good, but for the curious ways of the shared server providers! And the Google bots! And the etc etc etc. So I have stopped being surprised, crest fallen, and etc when I see my muse gone! I now have experience :-) a.k.a. I now have my muse offline too.

I read a lot about maintaining an exact offline copy and have synthesized all the information to the following:

1) Make the offline folder [ /localhost/muse/ ] = the online folder [ /public_html/muse/ ]
2) Export the database [ check Add DROP TABLE / VIEW / PROCEDURE / FUNCTION / EVENT option ]
3) Replace www.deferred-live.net with localhost in the .sql file
4) Import this edited .sql file [ which means I am replacing my existing database ]
5) Check the wp-config.php file to ensure that the database details reflect the offline scenario.

And that is it! Oh one last thing. Log into the offline wp-admin and set the Permalink Settings to default.

WP Quirks

At times the line line break tag will just not work ! I have to insert the space tag and then the line break tag. This comment saved me!

At times during an automatic upgrade the site may forever enter into a ” Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute. ” The fix :: Delete the .maintenance file !
