firefox new tab open homepage

I do a ‘Google’ search for ‘firefox new tab open homepage’

The resutls I get are:

‘Change homepage and new tabs in Internet Explorer 7’

Click the Tools icon in the top right corner of the browser window.
Select Internet options.
In the General tab, find the Home page section and change your homepage address.
For changing your new tabs, go to Tabs sections and click Settings button.

What you actually need to do is (for firefox – which is what I searched for but magically Google comes upp with IE 7)

Press the ‘ALT’ key. Then select Tools > Options and under the General tab click on Home Page

You should be good to go :)

Opening and switch to new tab

In firefox’s address bar type:

about:config

then

browser.newtab.url

under Value, put whatever homepage you’d like your browser to have….

WordPress Jetpack Turbo Edition. (A trimmed down, skinny, light version of Jetpack that we all know and love)

Jetpack is actually a stunning plug-in. The only issue most people have with it is it’s sizeable payload, although only the features you select get loaded at run time it’s still a pretty hefty amount of code to deal with and puts most people off using it – which is a shame.

Enter Jetpack 3.6.1 (Turbo Edition). To be honest it sounds a lot cleverer than it actually is, all I did was to go through the various modules and remove the ‘bloat’. It’s now a lot more streamlined and weighs in at less than 1/4 the size whilst keeping all the cool features that make Jetpack so awesome.

What I’ve kept in Jetpack 3.6.1 TE:

Comments (A welcome enhancement to the standard WordPress comments system)
Contact Form (Super easy contact form setup)
Photon (Use WordPress.com as a free CDN to speed up your site)
Publicize (Automatically sends posts to your Social Media accounts)
Related Posts (Keep your visitors engaged)
Subscriptions (Keep your visitors updated of new posts and comments)
Stats (Not as detailed as Google Analytics but lean, nice looking and on-site)

These mods really were easy to make there’s nothing to it, just go to the modules folder and delete the file and folder of the modules you want to remove. (I also removed several MB of languages, ie. every language other than English.)

Do not however delete the files:

module-extras.php
module-heading.php or
module-info.php

If you’re really not a programmer or even removing certain files or folders is a bit stressful then you can download jetpack-3-6-1-turbo-edition.zip from me. (You’ll need a zip / rar program installed to uncompress).

Download

I hope this will be of some use to you, I was dubious of using Jetpack myself but now it’s on a unofficial diet and turbo’d right up to the hilt you might want to give it another look.

And remember kids keep smilin’

Jetpack – We’re sorry, but we could not fulfill your request for /wp-comments-post.php?for=jetpack on this server.

I’m using the plugin Jetpack for WordPress for my comments, however whenever I submit a new comment I get the following:

Error 403

We’re sorry, but we could not fulfill your request for /wp-comments-post.php?for=jetpack on this server.
You do not have permission to access this server. Data may not be posted from offsite forms.

Your technical support key is: xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx

In my case bacause I’m using a plugin called Bad Behaviour; there is an option you need to check box to allow form postings from other web sites (required for OpenID; increases spam received) That should clear things up.

WordPress within an iframe?

Just to make it perfectly clear I’m not trying to open an iframe within WordPress or a WordPress post – I’m wanting to put WordPress itself within an iFrame.

So far I’ve actually got this working …well almost, it goes a bit wonkey for reasons I don’t yet understand.

What I’m trying to achieve is to have music/atmospherics/sfx playing continually in the background under my control through javascript. Normally if a visitor clicks on a link the page content will be refreshed, the music will be interrupted and start again from the beginning. I’m trying to avoid this so that whatever link is clicked on the sound stream will remain completely unaffected.

I thought that using an iframe to load my WordPress site in to would be the answer and even though the below code works, if I then set index.htm as the default document on my web server suddenly I get an ‘infinite loop’.

Here’s my code for index.htm

  1. <!DOCTYPE html>
  2. <html>
  3. <head>
  4. <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
  5.     <title>My wild and crazy website</title>
  6.    
  7.     <style media="screen" type="text/css">
  8.         body
  9.         {
  10.             margin: 0px;
  11.             padding: 0px;
  12.             background-color: #000;
  13.         }
  14.         #media-control
  15.         {
  16.             background-color: #f00;
  17.             display: none;
  18.         }
  19.     </style>    
  20. </head>
  21. <body>
  22.  
  23. <iframe src="index.php" style="position:fixed; top:0px; left:0px; bottom:0px; right:0px; width:100%; height:100%; border:none; margin:0; padding:0; overflow:hidden;">
  24.     Your browser doesn't even support iframes FFS.
  25. </iframe>
  26.    
  27.    
  28. <div id="media-control">
  29.     <audio id="audio" src="http://screwballstudios.co.uk/wp-content/themes/screwball/sound/JeroenTell-Circles.mp3" type="audio/mpeg" autoplay controls/>
  30.     <script>
  31.         var vid = document.getElementById("audio");
  32.         vid.volume = 0.99;
  33.     </script>
  34. </div>
  35.  
  36.  
  37. </body>
  38. </html>

The thing is if I go to http://mydomain.co.uk/index.htm everything works perfectly well – However, if I set my web server’s default document for mydomain.co.uk to index.htm I get an infinite loop (until the browser decides to call it quits) of the .mp3 opening again and again…

As the code above works perfectly if I call the page directly http://mydomain.co.uk/index.htm (when index.htm is NOT set as a default page in IIS) I’m suspecting that it might be an IIS 8 issue, but I’m not entirely sure.

Here is what I have as my web.config file

  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  2. <configuration>
  3.   <system.webServer>
  4.     <rewrite>
  5.       <rules>
  6.         <rule name="wordpress" patternSyntax="Wildcard">
  7.           <match url="*" />
  8.           <conditions>
  9.             <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
  10.             <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />
  11.           </conditions>
  12.           <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php" />
  13.         </rule>
  14.       </rules>
  15.     </rewrite>
  16.         <modules>
  17.             <add name="RemoveETag" type="org.it_notebook.RemoveETagModule" />
  18.         </modules>
  19.         <urlCompression doDynamicCompression="true" />
  20.         <staticContent>
  21.             <clientCache cacheControlMode="UseMaxAge" cacheControlMaxAge="1000.00:00:00" />
  22.         </staticContent>
  23.         <httpRedirect enabled="false" destination="" />
  24.         <defaultDocument enabled="true">
  25.             <files>
  26.             </files>
  27.         </defaultDocument>
  28.   </system.webServer>
  29. </configuration>

Does anyone have any idea how I can stop this ‘infinite’ opening of index.htm (if indeed that is the problem)? I’m not sure if it’s a WordPress issue or something I need to do with IIS8

Many thanks in advance!
