Now I’m Back

Hooray! I’m back. This blog has been suspended or has been archived for quite so long. I don’t even know when was this suspended. Since I gave birth last December 2012, I forgot to check on here. Until just recently that I was thinking that I should get back to blogging in WordPress but upon checking I was not directed to my blogging site.  Had asked wp people to reconsider my blog and now its back.    So now, I am thinking of few topics to post here. Please also visit my parenting blog, where I wrote about my journey as mother: Kimmys Parenting Journey.




How to Download Back-up File using CuteFTP

We’ve got some problem on how to access the ftp account to create back-up for one of our sites under the enom hosting company.  They have provided you some instructions on how to access your files through ftp, but I wasn’t familiar with the FTP client that they’re using.  Numerous options have been encountered, either you can use Dreamweaver MX, Cute FTP, Bulletproof FTP and Anarchie. Starting with the FTP link they’ve provided, we could hardly get into the site’s back-end.

This might be useful to some who’s encountering the same problem. Here’s what I did to download the files.

First: Before anything else, download CuteFTP.
Second: Log.in to enom.com.
Third: Go to Hosting > Web Hosting > Manage.
Fourth: Choose account name.
Fifth: Under account details, click “Login to Your Control Panel”.
Sixth: You will be directed to the “HOME – HOSTING PACKAGE OVERVIEW” page. On that page, at the bottom part you will find the Quick Account Info. Copy and paste the ftp link to CuteFTP, then log.in.


Now you will be able to download back-up or upload additional files to your site.

Changing Subdomain Name or URL with WordPress Site

If you have decided to change your subdomain name from http://mysite.com/example to http://mysite.com/newexample but you don’t know how, here are the following steps:

  1. Make sure to create a back-up of your site.
  2. On your existing server create a new location/ folder.
  3. Login to your wp-admin
  4. Then go to Administration>Settings>General panel.
  5. In the box for WordPress Address change the address to a new location and in the box of the Site Address change the address to a new location that will match the public site address.
  6. Then Save Changes.
  7. Then move all files from the old to the new directory.
  8. Then update all your links. If you are using Permalinks, go to Administration>Settings>Permalinks panel and update your permalinks.
  9. Update your existing Images/Media links to the new folder.
  10. You must also check your existing “Store Media Uploads” else your media uploads will still go to the old folder. This could be found under Settings>Media.

How to Stop Flash File from Looping?

I’ve learned something new today! Hooray to me :D

I was asked to edit .swf file 2 days ago, but it wasn’t taken cared of because of some other urgent task.  I searched the world wide web for every bit of information that I could use. I started on decompiling the .swf file by using the free-trial version of Sothink SWF Decompiler since I don’t have my own flash decompiler.  Then I edited a few information in it using Macromedia Flash Professional 8.  What takes me so long is that I don’t know to make the movie file stop from looping.

Here’s what I found out:

  • In your actions layer, create a new keyframe (F6) in the very last frame of your main timeline and add stop();

That’s how easy it is.


How to Disable Comments Section on Page in WordPress

Comment section on a page doesn’t seem professional. Comment section is more legit for blog post.

If you want to build discussion on a post with your site visitors but not on pages, you may consider that sometimes unchecking the comments in the screen option or even installing Page Off Comments Plugin doesn’t work.  If this will happen to you, just go to Appearance>>Editor>>Page Template (page.php) and delete this code snippet “<?php comments_template(); ?>

Or if you want to change the word “Leave a Reply” in your comment section with something else, just go to Appearance>>Editor>>Comments (comments.php). This is the code snippet that you want to change

<?php comment_form_title( ‘Leave a Reply’, ‘Leave a Reply to %s’ ); ?>



How to Password Protect your Site using Cpanel

Lately I’ve discovered on how to password protect site by doing few searches in Google and it’s simple.  If you want password protect a specific folder of your site for certain reasons, or you want it private because it’s still under construction, through Cpanel you can do it simply.

Just log-in in your Cpanel and then go to security, under security, click on “Password Protect Directories”.   Then choose the folder that you want to be password protected.  If you encounter problems, connect yourself with the Hostgator tech support.
