[Resolved] WordPress : Custom Fields not working and not getting updated issue

Time solves your problems

I’ve had a problem with WordPress last 3 months, and at last, I found the solution. Here is the story:


WordPress Custom Fields

WordPress posts have meta data (Custom Fields) where additional information on the post are stored. For example the featured image, number of views, comments count, keywords, SEO description and so on…

When posting new posts, the Custom fields where not getting stored on WordPress, so basically nothing was “tracked” and optimized. I looked everywhere on forums and internet resources for a solution to this issue, no luck!

Today I was rechecking Gibni’s data base and in the “post_meta” table, I found that “meta_id” was not set to “auto_increment”. You can see this in the “extras” column in phpMyAdmin while you see the “post_meta” table’s structure. Once setting this […]

Auto-hide, Favicons only, Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar for Firefox

By |2010-06-15T17:35:54+01:00June 15th, 2010|Technology|

Bookmarks Toolbar

In Firefox, as well as other browsers, the bookmarks toolbar is very handy and useful when you use bookmarking in your browsers! A drawback of the bookmarks toolbar is that by default, it’s very limited in size and style. In Firefox, the bookmarks toolbar is very much customizable.


The issue arises when you’ve got plenty of bookmarks on your bookmarks toolbar and the toolbar gets filled! Well, you get a small arrow to click-on to view remaining bookmarks, which is basically inconvenient!



First solution is to reduce the bookmarks’ names manually by editing them one by one and using smaller names. For example, instead of “Gibni”, putting simply “G” as your bookmark’s name.


SEO Super Comments – Update

By |2010-04-22T11:49:42+01:00April 22nd, 2010|Blogging, Technology, Web Development|

Improve your SEO and increase Pageviews

There’s a great plugin for the WordPress platform, called SEO Super Comments, which creates a single “virtual” page for each comment on your site. It increases the number of pages you have on the site, and improves your SEO a lot. Read more on SEO Super Comments on the authors page: SEO Super Comments by Vladimir Prelovac .
“The concept relies around optimizing the target page using title and H1 tag using the context of the comment. So basically we will take the excerpt of the comment and use it to create the page title and H1 tag and in the body we will hold the content of the comment…” says Vladimir.

 

 

PrestaShop Revolution

By |2010-02-27T16:23:40+01:00February 27th, 2010|Technology, Web Development|

After hours of testing and coding templates for PrestaShop, I thought it would be nice to rewrite PrestaShop code, and make it more portable, flexible, and less dependent on Old JavaScript.


The first goal of the PrestaShop Revolution, is to use the latest JS librairies, as latest jQuery, and its plugins. Here is the place for everyone interested to share their knowledge, and work toward making PrestaShop a better e-commerce solution.


To be more efficient, I beleive that loaded JS and CSS files should all be defined in template files, and not main PrestaShop PHPs; e.g. the JS files for the Product Page, which are defined in /prestashop/product.php rather than prestashop/themes/mytheme/product.php

Apple iPad Review

By |2020-05-08T11:43:38+01:00January 27th, 2010|Mobile, Reviews, Technology|

After all those rumors on iSlate, iTab, etc, at last the Apple’s tablet official information came out. iPad is the real name! After a tour on Apple’s website, comes few points:

 

iPad Advantages?

iPad seems to be the next best thing after iPhone, but compared to iPhone,

 

  • it’s got a bigger screen,
  • great touch-screen technology,
  • faster processor,
  • more storage space,
  • ambient light sensor,
  • and few little details…
  • Cool design,
  • iPad Applications
  • Classy,

But as far as it goes with the details on Apple, there aren’t many advantages to iPad.

 

iPad, a laptop or a HUGE iPhone?

iPad is definitely not a laptop and neither a netbook, it’s 9.7 inches big screen, it gets close to 10 inches netbooks but the fact that it […]

Gericom Overdose 1360

By |2009-10-24T17:37:29+01:00October 24th, 2009|Technology|

Entretien Ordinateur Portable

Il y a quelque jours, j’ai reçu un ordinateur portable Gericom Overdose 1360e pour maintenance, mis à jour et réparation. Première étape consistait a augmenter la RAM, donc j’ai remplacer la RAM par une barrette de 1Go DDR Sodimm. L’entretien du Windows a été un peu long, car après l’installation de Service Pack 3 sur Windows XP Édition Familiale, il a fallut Défragmenter le disque dure…


FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA

Un erreur rencontré, était par rapport a la mémoire virtuelle. L’erreur a apparue sur un écran bleu. La solution est de vérifier l’état du fichier PAGEFILE.SYS . Il faut que la taille du fichier PAGEFILE.SYS , soit au moins 1.5 fois la RAM installée. Ceci est a définir dans:gericom_overdose_1360

Windows 7 not booting?

By |2009-10-20T01:48:18+01:00October 20th, 2009|Technology|

Microsoft Windows 7

Windows 7 is the latest Microsoft’s operating system. It’s something made out of Windows XP and Windows Vista. I found it a stable system and the visual effects are pretty cool. Something I do not really appreciate is the User Account Control which pops up everytime you make a system related operation. I disabled the UAC at the first startup.


Windows 7 was released first to computer manufacturers and leaked on the internet. Today, a retail version is available to everyone.


There are a lot of articles on the internet written about the features of Windows 7, its advantages and disadvantages. Lots of webhsites provide information on how to download and/or activate Windows 7. I would strongly recommend you buy a genuine version of Microsoft […]

Windows 7 Installation Error – Solved

By |2009-09-29T23:18:38+01:00September 29th, 2009|Technology|

Trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate (build 7600), I got the “Windows could not prepare the computer to boot into the next phase of installation” error message. I tried the installation once again, but the error kept appearing.

The problem was that I had deleted my old Windows XP, and though I had no operating system on the PC. Fortunately I did burn a copy of ” The Ultimate Boot CD 4 Windows” and it saved me a lot of time throught the process.

After searching for the possible solutions, I came to the conclusion that this error did appear regularly on Vista but as the Windows 7 is quite new, there where no clear documentation on how to resolve this problem.


Possible solutions are:


Disk Errors:

  • Run a “CHKDSK X: […]

Invite de commande – Windows XP

By |2009-09-24T12:38:03+01:00September 24th, 2009|Technology|

“Un interpréteur de commandes, parfois désigné par l’anglicisme shell, est un programme faisant partie des composants de base d’un système d’exploitation, le Command-line interface (CLI) (ou invite de commandes).

C’est le mode de contrôle fondamental d’un ordinateur. Ce dernier prend ses données d’entrées en ligne de commande, qui sont transmises à l’interpréteur en mode interactif.

Son rôle est de traiter les commandes tapées au clavier par l’utilisateur. Ces commandes, une fois interprétées, auront pour effet de réaliser telle ou telle tâche d’administration, ou bien de lancer l’exécution d’un logiciel.

L’invite elle-même consiste en quelques caractères, en début de ligne (généralement, le nom de compte de l’utilisateur, et/ou l’unité logique par défaut, et/ou le chemin par défaut, et/ou date, …), se terminant par un caractère bien connu (souvent « ] » ou « […]
