I have a number of Wordpress blogs that I administrate and some have long sidebars with only one column which become too long for the content contained on the page. I have been looking for a way to move some of the sidebar widgets to the footer but this wasn't an option with the SimpleX theme that I am using. Then I came across Help-Developer.com and there great example of how to add widgets to your Wordpress footer.
In relation to the CSS Rounded Corners that I wrote about recently, we needed to have the rounded corners rendered in the Page_Init event of a user control instead of being part of a markup page. Therefore I researched adding simple Html tags in code and found the HtmlControls.HtmlGenericControl method which creates generic Html controls, obviously. The CSS Rounded Corners Html code is a combination of bold tags mostly with some div tags and CSS classes to go along. Here is an example of the Html for the rounded corners in Asp.Net code behind.
If you happen to run DotNetNuke with the Blog Module as one of your major modules for content, you may find the need to remove a group of posts from the module at some time. For instance, you were active in Paid-to-Post at one time, have received your money from the posts, have fulfilled your obligation with the organization that hired you, but are still being penalized by Google for having the posts on your site. Well, there are only two tables in DNN that you need to query and delete records from to remove these posts permanently.
I have been creating my own rounded corners using a table structure and 6 images on a couple of web sites that we are building. But I started to wonder if there was an easier way to round corners without all the images and etc. Today I came across benogle and his CSS Rounded Corners demonstration which is one really nice way to create what used to require quite a bit of image slicing.
I thought I had found a decent way to link to landing pages without actually linking to them. I did this so Google wouldn't know I was linking to certain sites and for some reason punish my rankings. Well I found a decent solution using the Redirection plugin for my Wordpress Blogs. I would create 301 redirections to certain directories on my site which would redirect to the landing page. But some new blogs I created, I received a 401 error on the home page when this plugin was activated. So this solution didn't always work. For those cases I altered the .htaccess file in the root directory to accomplish the same redirection.
