There was a Kevin Costner movie where he kept on hearing, “Build it and they will come.”
Great for Kevin, not so good for webpages. If you want to be found on the net, you need more… SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
Remuxing reassembles the data packets of the audio stream and that’s exactly how to fix the problem.
I found the perfect font to use for titles in a presentation, Raleway Semi-bold. I installed it and when I went back to PowerPoint, I had two options: bold and italic. So, where’s semi-bold? A quick search found that it’s a MS-Office problem. A hack around it was to remove all other variations of the bold font, except for the semi-bold. This would be great unless I wanted to use the actual bold font. My solution was to rename the Semi-Bold Raleway font and install it as a “new” font.
Are you getting ugly pdfs with no margins and odd font sizes without page numbers? Have no fear, there is a very EASY way to solve this problem (well, easy if someone tells you how to do it).
Grunt is an “easy” way compile coffeescript, sass, compass. It can minify, concatenate, and a whole lot more. Everything is simple… as long as you know what you’re doing.
I put the install process for both Node.js and Grunt in the post on Trimming CSS Fat.
HTMLy a simple PHP CMS program that stores all the posts in Markdown. It’s also open source and free. It looks like recent development is a few months old, which is a concern. There is not a lot of documentation available either. Many of these applications are one-man shows. If this guy disappears, so does the program. The good news is that the github issue forum is active.
Duplicator is a plugin to backup, migrate, copy or clone a site from one location to another.
I wrote a recipe up some time ago to do a localhost database restore using Duplicator, but never prettied it up. Since it might be of use to someone in the future (like me), I’m going to go head and publish it.
