Chances are, you have added personal touches and tweaked your current WordPress blog’s theme and only to realise that there’s no author page included in your theme design. Ouch~!
With few easy steps, you should be able to create the author page on your current WordPress theme.
Step 1: Preparing the author.php file.
- A quick way to build up your author.php file is to duplicate it from other themes, most notably, the Twenty Eleven default theme. You are halfway there already!
- Navigate to your author page to see whether it works or not. In most cases, your author page is default at www.YOUR_DOMAIN.com/author/ADMIN. You can change your nickname from ADMIN to something else. See Step 2.
- Up to this point, you should be able to see all the details pumped out already except that the look and feel may be distorted, as the author.php file that you have is from other theme. Open up single.php of your own theme, replicate the html structure in there into your author.php. Replace everything in author.php except for the content between “<div id=”content” role=”main”>” and “</div><!– #content –>”.
Step 2: Picking your name (Optional)
Simply go to your WordPress database, and update the user_nicename field of your account. It should not affect any other functionality of the system.
Step 3 : To add visual editor/TinyMCE to your biography (Optional)
If you requires more than what the dull biography textarea has to offer, download this plugin – Visual Biography Editor and you will get the editor as good as what you get in the post editor.
I found out Cloudflare while reading my subscription feeds in Google Reader and later found out that the group that hacked into PSN, used Cloudflare as well to fend off attacks to the group’s site. I decided to give it a go in one of my pet project’s site, myLensDB.
The figures below should tell wonders.
Bandwidth to actual hosting server halved. Threats, although it's totally not aware of previously, seem to be controlled.
This is the new figures.
Response time halved as static content is cached and hosting all around the world at the data center nearest to the requesting user. Speed doubled.
This is the old figures.
This is good. It’s really good. I have been jumping around trying out all sorts of custom ROMs for the past few months and finally stumbled upon InsertCoin’s Sense 2.1 + 3.0GB.
My phone is now riding on the latest Gingerbread and the new HTC Sense!
When I first got the ROM, it as tagged at version 22 but there’s new version being released to the public almost everyday as the development peaks at the moment. Note that the versioning number went on from 22 to 30 then the team decided to tagged it as 1.0.0 as a stable release. The latest version at the time of writing is 1.0.3.
I truly appreciate the efforts made by the development team in making the HTC Desire a better phone to be used.
Here’s what we got!

Forget about the long list, if they don’t make any sense to you. See some of the screenshots I got from my phone, and, compare to what you are getting in yours.
I had enough of the rumors and wait of official new releases being made by HTC for countless months, the custom development of ROMs is truly benefiting the masses. Of course, it requires a little bit of reading and technical know how before one jumps into rooting and flashing the phone. I would highly recommend this piece of ROM to all of you if you are currently seeking to better empower your device!
I must write it down somewhere before I start forgetting things. By far, I have tried multiple custom ROMs and here’s what I’m experiencing.
It only stayed in my phone for 2 days. My battery drops over 15% over the night. Strange. So, I moved on. There have been lots of intensive development going on to date though.
2. RCMix HD
Started with A2SD variant. Internal memory is not reporting correctly.
Then, I moved on to try with the D2EXT variant, it worked great, but entered bootloop and got into gabp, google service framework error and so on. calendar memory clean up helped abit but problem re-occur. Gave up even after discovered version 3.01 that supposed to solve the bootloop issue.
3. And again, updated my phone with newer and newer version of RCMix HD. I tried all sorts of variants. Rotating, DeSensenized and so on. At the moment, I’m using RCMIxHD_v3.6.1_ROT_D2EXT but I’m always still on the lookout for newer, better ROM in the community.
Thanks xda-developers and it’s strong community for all the fantastic ROMs.
Well, I bet that chances of my friends out there to be actually knowing Yahoo trying to revamp the entire mail interface is very low given that everyone is using GMail as their regular email already for the past few years, like, you and me.
Thus, there’s here I’m making such a posting right now. It’s gonna be short and sweet as always. This posting would be more like “before and after” kind of thingy. Here’s the current look of my email interface for my Yahoo! Mail.
And here is the new look…
Even though that I don’t really give it a damn on whatever Yahoo is doing now or how hard they are trying to lure all the users back to use the once-very-popular-everyone’s-regular-email, I must say that the new interface is very sleek and simple enough.
The obvious thing that I prefer Yahoo! Mail over what Gmail does not offer ability to read multiple emails at the same time. As for now, I can easily open multiple copies of emails in tabbed fashion inside Yahoo! Mail as opposed to explicitly open up my Gmail again in a new tab/window when I need to cross check multiple emails. (This feature is already here in the current version of Yahoo! Mail, by the way!)
See what’s new on the new Yahoo! Mail Beta. Maybe, probably, someday, we can still give Yahoo a go, this time!
