Testing menucool.com tabbed-content

http://www.menucool.com/tabbed-content Tab1 Tab2 Tab3 I can see real potential in this to help organise some work. UPDATE: I’m now using menutab (probably will be retrospectively as well). e.g. https://blog.xarta.co.uk/2017/03/diy-shortcodes/ However, for using my new shortcode “xpostcontent”, I did have to add some CSS to hide the additional printfriendly button: content 2 content 3

Apache2 – Directory Browsing on by default! RedirectMatch 404, and git exclude

I had no idea this was the case – Apache2 Directory Browsing on by default. Only found out when I added a .git initialisation to my “xarta” folder as my JavaScript was outgrowing WordPress’s Header/Footer plugin and I wanted to use Visual Studio Code’s intellisense – in particular with the three.js library.

Raspberry Pi Exim4 config for local hMailServer smtp, and low disk space alert

My existing Raspberry Pi OpenVPN solution needed “fixing” but when I came to do it I discovered I’d run-out of space on the 8GB microSD card. It took a while to track down the culprit … a log file in the hidden .cache directory in my home directory – over 2GB in size. Plus this […]
