Hide WordPress Stats Smilie

If you use the WordPress Stats plugin, you may have noticed the smilie added at the bottom of the page. The plugin itself offers no way to remove the smilie, and is actually required for the plugin to function properly. I myself use the service to keep tabs on traffic to my site.

However not all users myself included like seeing the little graphic in the bottom corner of the page, but just because its needed doesn’t mean you have to see it. Using a little CSS trickery we can hide the graphic from the user. Simply toss the following line in the bottom of your stylesheet and while the image will still be loaded it will be hidden from view, keeping the plugin functioning as it should.

iPhone 4

Apple has done it again, I’ll be pre-ordering one on the 15th will you? The only question on my mind is White ore Black. To tell you the truth, I like them about the same, maybe leaning just a little on the side of Black, but than again, I don’t want to be like every other person out there. and for that reason alone there is a very good chance I may be going with the white. The biggest thing the iPhone 4 will be sporting will be the introduction of FaceTime and I’m really stoked to hear apple will be making it an open standard.

Another new feature will be the front facing camera, for the video chat as well as simply taking self portraits. This has been annoying on the iPhone across all the previous versions. Its not so much not being able to see the screen but trying to find the button it is after all on a touch screen. Theres a very easy fix for this and I jail-broke my first iPhone (first gen) to get this feature, allow the volume buttons to act as a shutter release! But thats all in the past because now you can simply use the front facing camera to frame your face and be able to see where the shutter button is.

Another amazing feature is the Retina display sporting an insane number of pixels, (326 per inch) Apple says the pixels are so fine your eye can not distinguish individual pixels. I can’t wait to see if its as good as they claim =)

What are your thoughts on apples latest gadget?

Flickr Photostream In WordPress

flickr-logoPerhaps you noticed in the top right of the page I’ve added my flickr photos. This is auto-updating, as soon as I upload new images to flickr they appear here on my site as well. And its super easy.
flickrstep1

First head over to http://www.flickr.com/badge.gne, We are going to use the HTML Badge for this. On the next step we have a few options about the type of content you’d like to display. You can choose to display all of your public photos and video or perhaps just your content with a specific tag associated with it. You can even limit it to only display content within a specific flickr set. You even have the option to display all public content from everyones uploads, and yes you can specify specific tags for this as well.

To get the layout I use, select not to display your portrait, leave the number of images to display at 3 (4 isn’t an option we will override this in the next step anyway). Choose to display your most recent images, (or you can opt to display random images) Select Square for the size and for orientation select None (Because you want to style it yourself).

flickrstep5Go ahead and skip the Colors step because we are going to style this ourselves with a bit of CSS. Don’t worry what it looks like at this step, in fact we only care about one thing on the next step, the bit of code I highlighted in the image. However we need to change this code just a bit to load 4 images instead of 3 and to make the code Valid. First lets replace all the & with & and then we need to adjust count=3 to count=4 your end code will look somewhat like this (This will pull MY 4 images not yours be sure to get the code from the flickr page to pull your images).

appearance_widgetsNow that we have the little bit of code we need, lets get it ready to place in the WordPress sidebar. WordPress Widgets are also known as “sidebar accessories” which are WordPress Plugins or add-ons to your WordPress blog sidebar. Developed by Automattic for WordPress and WordPress.com blogs, WordPress Widgets allow the easy addition of design elements, gadgets, content, images, and more to your WordPress sidebar to personalize your blog without knowing HTML, PHP, or any code. Many WordPress Plugins now come with a Widget version to allow easy addition to the sidebar. One Widget type is Text which allows us to input our own HTML or Plane text, We are going to use this Widget type.



appearance_widgetseditor2Now that we have the Basic code put together, we need to style it, so we need to add some CSS to the WordPress CSS file, Don’t worry its not as hard as you think, WordPress has a built in editor for doing this. (The following Instruction’s assume your running the latest and greatest Version of WordPress, If your not UPGRADE! if you don’t know how, Use the Contact link at the top of the page or leave a comment to get ahold of me, I offer WordPress Upgrades as a service, contact me for more details)

Select Appearance from the Left Sidebar, then select Editor, okay we are going to edit the Style-Sheet at the bottom. Once the editor is up scroll all the way to the bottom and Paste the following code in.

#flickr {
width:165px;
height:150px;
margin-left:12px;
}
#flickr a img {
float:left;
margin:0 0px 8px 8px;
background:#3f4e4e;
padding:4px;
width:62px;
height:62px;
}

News: Silverware Art. Don’t Worry, I’ll Spoon You.

As some of you know, I’ve always been into photography. I don’t have a nice SLR like my buddy Jesse over at RansackNation (yet) . But I do have a fairly high resolution Sony Cybershot, The DSC-P200 to be exact. 7.2Megapixels.

Forks ColorAnyway, one day I was just screwing around with some silverware I just washed before tossing it back in the drawer. I had a pile of it on the counter and decided to snap a few pictures for the hell of it. I really liked how some of the shots came out. I submitted one to Deviant art.

I hadn’t logged into Deviant Art in quite awhile. So when I did go there other day, what did I find? A comment posted on that very picture. (the one you see to the right) It was used along with a large selection of other silverware based art.

And just in case anyone is wondering what camera I have my eye on next, I’m looking to pickup a Nikon D80.

Follow the link below to the article that featured the artwork to the right.
