Make The Post Name As Custom Permalink In Wordpress

I do like to have my permalinks as custom as possible for pretty URLs and for search engine optimization. A personal favorite of mine is using the postname as a permalink. To achieve this, go to the Settings, click Permalinks. On the box that say Custom Structure, enter the code below:

Photography projects to do

I was thinking of getting a photoblog sometime soon and had the idea to come up with crazy photography projects to fill up the site. Here are some of the projects that I'll be looking forward to do:

1. 52 Weeks Project. Every week on the entire year, i'll post one of the best images that have captured during the week.
2. 7 Day Photo Challenge. A week of themes based photography.
3. 30 Days Photo Challenge. For a month of clicking the shutter, a different theme everyday.
4. 35 Days with the 35mm lens. A strict 35 day challenge using just your 35mm prime lens. How's that?
5. 50 First days with the 50mm. Got a new 50mm prime? Then this challenge will be a good thing to do.
6. 85 Days with my 85mm lens. 85 days, almost three months of the 85mm prime lens to take the challenge.
7. 10 Day Black & White Project. Produce images using the b&w in-camera setting on your camera.
8. 365 Days Project. Probably this is the most famous photography project ever.

As you may have noticed, that's gonna take sometime to finish all up these project, and I'm really excited to do all of this. I'll just gonna take this one at a time. Knowing there will still be a lot of photography ideas that I can think of, I'm sure i'll have it posted it here. If you have any suggestions, fill up the comments section!

HTML Comments

Inserting a comment in html allows us to easily describe what the code does. It is very useful if you will be handing out the code into a developer so that things get easier when it's the time to work for it. The code below is an example on how insert a comment in html.

<-- css stylesheet reference -->
<link href="css/style.css" rel="stylesheet" />

HTML5 Code Validators

There are two websites that I use for validating code for HTML5. Validating code markup is essential in web development to see if your code is at the web standard level.

Remove WWW in URL through htaccess

I always want to have my website url remove the www in the address so I can have shorter address displayed in the address bar on a web browser and at the same time save keystrokes in typing a URL. Example, I have the website I will just want to have instead. Just insert the code below in your .htaccess file and you will be able to remove the obvious www in every website address.
RewriteEngine On 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^$ [NC] 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301]

HTML5 Doctype

HTML5 simplified the doctype with a much shorter and easier to remember code markup .
<!doctype html>
That's it! It's the new doctype for the new version of HTML. If you're using HTML5 now, this may not be new to you already.

How to login to MySQL through command line

A simple and fast way (non-graphical) to login to MySQL using a one liner command.

mysql -h localhost -u root -p

You will prompted to type in the password. Type the password and you're good to go.

Day to day schedule

I've created this schedule so that I can manage my time and do only the things that I really need. I am really the kind of person that always think of many and do many things yet the concentration to the most important tasks is often disregarded. My week really starts off with monday night, so yeah, night shifts, sucks bigtime haha. Anyway, really don't have a choice right now but to work to save for future projects and invest in items needed for a really small business just to pay off the monthly bills. Right, let's go straight to the daily schedule I have made.

6:30AM - 7:00AM Going Home
7:00AM - 8:30AM Study (html5, css3, jquery, wordpress)
8:30AM - 9:00AM Breakfast
9:00AM - 6:00PM Sleep
6:00PM - 7:00PM Study (html5, css3, jquery, wordpress)

Blog Update, September

Been thinking of cleaning up this blog, since this is for now the blog that I will be maintaining and making writeups until the time I will be able to get a paid webhosting. I already have some lineup of the domains that I will be developing, excited and nervous at the same time. That will be my basis for portfolio and I am hoping that all things will go well.
