Water Park in Vienna [ Video]

Vienna Part 2

I had a chance to visit a water park when I was last time in Vienna. Very awesome place!  My friend Ari didn’t want to come with me (lazy bastard :P). So I went alone and had like an hour, didn’t have much time to enjoy it. I #blameAri for that.

How to embed videos to your WordPress Site

With video, there are so menu thing that you can explain to your visitors. You can upload your videos on Youtube, Vimeo, depending on your preference and how long your video is.

You should never upload videos to your WordPress site. But this will be analysed in another article. In this article I explain how to use the  standard method, embedding to place videos in WordPress

Once you create an account, upload a video to Youtube or Vimeo sites, let’s see how to embed it into your WordPress page or post

 

Simply paste the link URL

WordPress now supports oEmbed to make embedding videos into your blog post even easier. oEmbed is a format which allows URLs to point to embedded content automatically. It will take a standard link, extract media from it, and embed it on a webpage. This has been integrated into WordPress fully for several versions.

All you need is to copy the video link URL from the browser, place its URL into the content area. Switch to “Text” tab before pasting the Youtube URL.

Your post editor will render a preview of the video. That way, you can see what it looks like without having to preview the post.

Let me know if you have any questions.

How can We Increase Maximum File Upload Size In WordPress

WordPress is growing blogging platform, every day many peoples join WordPress or create a self-hosted WordPress blog. In this tutorial I am going to cover that How can We Increase Maximum File Upload Size In WordPress, You just have to follow the simple steps to Increase Maximum File Upload Size for your blog. I will discuss different ways but you just have to apply only one, not all.

Theme Functions File

There are cases where we have seen that just by adding the following code in the theme function’s file, you can increase the upload size:
view source print?

@ini_set( 'upload_max_size' , '64M' );
@ini_set( 'post_max_size', '64M');
@ini_set( 'max_execution_time', '300' );

2. Create or Edit an existing PHP.INI file

In most cases, if you are on a shared host, you will not see a php.ini file in your directory. If you do not see one, then create a file called php.ini and upload it in the root folder. In that file add the following code:

upload_max_filesize = 64M
post_max_size = 64M
max_execution_time = 300

This method is reported to work for many users. Remember if 64 doesn’t work. Try 10MB (sometimes that work).

3. htaccess Method

Some people have tried using the .htaccess method by modifying the .htaccess file in the root directory, you can increase the maximum upload size in WordPress. Open or create the .htaccess file in the root folder and add the following code:

php_value upload_max_filesize 64M 

php_value post_max_size 64M 

php_value max_execution_time 300 

php_value max_input_time 300

Again, it is important that we emphasize that if you are on a shared hosting package, then these techniques may not work. In that case, you would have to contact your web hosting provider to increase the limit for you. Some hosts completely turn down their users. We recommend that you use HostGator. Their support folks are very helpful in these situations.

Feeling stuck? See what you need to do

You have a project to deliver and you don’t know what to do, or you need to be creative and the ideas just not coming to your head. On days that seem like you are totally uninspired or stuck in a creative rut, follow these simple steps.

 

Go for a walk

Researchers at Stanford have found that walking improves creativity by as much as 60%. They found that inspiration and creativity not only occur when out walking but also when you return to your desk.

Take a shower

Research also shows that there is a relationship between being relaxed and creative.According to Scott, 72% of people have new ideas while in the shower. Scott attributes the shower as an ideal place for creative thinking because –

“The relaxing, solitary, and non-judgmental shower environment may afford creative thinking by allowing the mind to wander freely, and causing people to be more open to their inner stream of consciousness and daydreams.”

Sleep well

The benefits of sleep on our productivity and creativity have been well documented. It helps improve our memory by solidifying memories.

How?

It clears information out of our temporary storage areas and processes information.

Tip – Keep a notepad and pen next to your bed in case you come up with ideas and solutions to the problems you are tackling.

Consume less coffee

Most people, when looking for external sources to help boost creativity, turn to coffee. While caffeine has many benefits, research shows it can undermine one’s creativity rather than stimulating it.

Why?

Because it leads to impulse judgments and energy that allows for unnaturally long work sessions, which interferes with the natural incubation periods required for creativity in individuals.

Exercise daily

Henry Thoreau claimed that he was able to think better when his legs were moving.Research studies seem to indicate that Thoreau was on to something. People who exercise on a regular basis were found to outperform those that didn’t.

So hit the gym, do yoga, go for a long walk or run, but be sure to make it a regular part of your daily routine.

Change your environment

At times a change in environment may be called for. Research seems to support the habits of people who break away from order, tradition, and convention. A messy desk, dim lighting and some ambient noise like that in a café can help boost creativity.

Why is this the case?

Because creativity comes from making connections and seeing patterns where others see chaos. So try creating a remix with a fresh pair of eyes or taking old ideas to new perspectives

How to Fix the 500 internal server error on WordPress

The 500 Internal Server error it is most common and general error, that will be shown when there’s a problem with the server or with the WordPress file system. It is the most unhelpful and nondescript bane of web developers everywhere. It’s a catchall error message that can literally mean anything.

500-Internal-Server-Error-PHP

Let’s have a look how to troubleshoot this error.

Backup your site

I am highly recommending to backup your site before proceeding this troubleshooting.  To find the core of the issue we will make changes in the root directory of the site. So if something will go wrong, you can always restore it.

 

Deactivate all your plugins

If you have access to your site from the back end, go to Plugins > All Plugins. Select all your plugins, choose “Deactivate” from Bulk Options and Apply changes.

Plugins Deactivate

Check if the 500 Internal Server error is gone from the front page. If it is gone, activate one plugin at the time to find out which one is causing this error.

If you don’t have access to the backend of your site, use FTP client of File Manager on your cPanel to access WordPress directory files.

Using FTP client

If you are already familiar with the FTP client, please skip this section.

If you are a PC user, please download FileZilla FTP Client from here.

For Mac Users try:

1.  Cyberduck; free FTP software designed for Macs
2.  Transmit – FTP software you purchase designed for Macs

Once you install FileZilla, use your domain name, username and password to access your host’s file manager.

And you are ready to go!

Access your site from the cPanel

First, log into cPanel. In the Files section, click on the File Manager icon.

cPanel > File ManagerClick to expand the public_html folder, nad you will see your WordPress site directory root.

 

Deactivate your plugins manually

Navigate to the /wp-content/plugins folder and rename the plugins folder to plugins.deactivate. All the plugins will be deactivated after this.

Check your front end if it is working, if it is working, if it is, rename back the plugins.deactivate to plugins. Open the plugins folder and start renaming each plugin folder one by one till the error disappears from your site. This will allow you to reactivate each plugin individually to isolate the offending plugin and resolve the 500 Internal Server Error.

 

Check the .htaccess file

Open your WordPress root directory in FileZilla or your preferred FTP client. This is typically called public_html. Locate the .htaccess file, download it to your computer to have a backup and delete it from your directory. Try to load your site again, if your site is back, congratulations!

Now, go into your WordPress admin area. Hover over Settings, and select Permalinks. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click Save Changes.

 

Increase your PHP Memory Limit

Sometimes this error can happen if you are exhausting your PHP memory limit.  To solve this issue, edit the wp-config.php file that is located in your WordPress directory, along with wp-admin and wp-include folders.

First, check if you have already the following code added:

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

if it already there changed the 64M to 256, if it is not, place the following line inside the file:

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');

Save the file, and re-upload it to your root directory, overwriting the original file. Refresh the client, and refresh your site. If you still see the error, you are not having PHP memory limit issues. Remove the above code from the wp-config.php file on your computer, save it, and re-upload it to your root directory.

 

Ask your Hosting Provider

If nothing works, then you need to get in touch with your hosting provider. By looking at the server logs, they should be able to get to the bottom of things.
