    We have a blank canvas now.

If i can over achieve, when i leave zeda i plan to get into precast, on the Moon making lite strong moonment, then build Lilly Pads from Earth to the Moon that take about a day to fly in between.

    Just want to throw this out there.

    i realize newspapers do not have long. You could, from Your zeda billboard dashboard type in the news highlights in AR, an customer can read the highlights and order a single newspaper delivered, it might cost $5.00 then for 2 bits more ($.25) bundle the Post or Times, and use degenerated paper that depending on the humidity degenerates in 4 to 7 days...ed

    We are now following firefox webxr https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2018/04/03/mozilla-brings-firefox-augmented-virtual-reality/ You want to follow an large open source company like mozilla because they will catch the basic security holes that a small company may never know.

    John

    Just wanted to say, have always thought John McCain is part of an cabal working together. The truth is He has paid a great price like so many alive who deal with war. In my book He get’s a wide birth. The Truth is the Truth and Your Country does see it. God Speed to You and Your’s, in Jesus Name. When i think of Monday Memorial Day and the Ones not Home, it is to much, will just say what i e’d Mom Jean “Will properly Thank, You and Dad on the other side.” She e’d backed, Thank you. She understood...ed

    Trusted Host

    This is a perfect example of why open source bets all propriety. Part of drupals security layers, it is required so if You do not do it, it will show a warning on Your dashboard. Go to sites/default/ edit default.settings.php go to line 738 copy
    $settings['trusted_host_patterns'] = array(
    * '^example\.com$',
    * '^.+\.example\.com$',
    * '^example\.org$',
    * '^.+\.example\.org$',
    * ); now You have to paste it inbetween a */ and /** these are starting and ending tabs of code not being used. Then remove the * from Your paste and if Your just one domain delete the bottom 2 lines:
    $settings['trusted_host_patterns'] = array(
    '^pendleton-or\.us$',
    '^.+\.pendleton-or\.us$',
    );
    hit save, there are other things we can do like redirect to https or redirect to no www in the address...ed

    Xnea the last tip May 3, 2018

    You want to make changes to the default.settings.php file before You install drupal. Theoretically someone can spoof Your admin cookies and wget Your settings.php file as soon as You change the permissions. So before You install drupal go into sites/default and edit the default.settings.php file Your database name/user name/password is not in there yet. i do not remember if You have to change the default folder and default.settings.php permissions or not, if You can not save it after editing then You do. One more thing when moving Your site if You put everything in the sites folder it can get very large so lets make line 539 # $settings['file_public_path'] = 'sites/default/files'; too $settings['file_public_path'] = 'pubfilsz/filez2'; and and line 554 too $settings['file_private_path'] = 'privitfilez/filespiv'; You can see You can name or put them any where and drupal will make them also You might of notice drupal changes default.settings.php to settings.php after the install, just a note. There is one more change to the default.settings.php file before You install drupal and that is the “trusted host”...ed

  8. This Week's Web App Tip May 3, 2018 10:05a 10:43a

    Before You install drupal, move public/private upload files folders.

    At Your hosting go into cpanal then go to "file manager" then to the root folder then to sites folder, then make default folder permissions 755 then go into the default folder and change settings.php file permissions to 744 go into settings.php to edit. Go down to line 539. i do not want my public upload files to be in the same directory as my settings.php file so i uncommented # $settings['file_public_path'] = 'sites/default/files'; by removing the # then changed the line to $settings['file_public_path'] = 'sites/pubfiles'; then line 554 i uncommented and changed to $settings['file_private_path'] = 'sites/privitfilez'; ...ed (update May 5, 2018 3:36p 3:44p.) Most Important! change the default folder back to 555 permissions and settings.php file back to 444 permissions.

    The Nature of running an app like drupal.

    After these last few security alerts https://www.drupal.org/security , this stuff is not for the faint of heart. One said there was no way of telling without looking if there is a back door in Your data base, You might have to re-write Your site. The future is, i will need to get good at pulling out only the data and user data i want out of the base, look at it to make sure there is nothing weird in there. Delete the base, make a new one, then re-enter the data...ed

    My Mobile Security

    Took me a bit to dial in my mobile security this is what i have. Obviously cellular net traffic is way more secure then wi-fi. i run an cn zte on pre paid trak-phon because of money, but pre paid runs on all kinds of networks which might be good. Phone set up i, turn on developers menu by going to “settings/about phone” then go down to “Build number” and click/tap it 5 times (another button opens an game.) Once in developer i click “Running services” turn everything off but the min. Then go down to “Show CPU usage” the 3 numbers are 15 min ago 7.5 min ago and current CPU usage mine runs at 4.75 when i open my phone. Then down to “Don’t keep activities” click it, then too “Background process limit” i set to 3, then too “Inactive apps” trurn everything off but min. Then no apps and no google store just phone and messages then i use the phone hotspot and reset my phone about every 2 weeks...ed

    Make Billboard page https://pendleton-or.us/questions/howto-d8-database

    i have studied these open source web site apps for years i go back to zencart. Now You will see why d8 is the best, it's the design. Before we make the database record billboard page we will need to add an taxonomy field for the cat page so we can display the records by tags. Go to Structure/Taxonomy/Add vocabulary i named it Cat did not use the discription. Then click "list terms" or "Add terms" and add a few terms like "beer" and "internet" i kept them lower case but it does not matter. put nothing in the discription, "Relations" is root, then for the "URL alias" i made it "/cat/beer" i added the /cat/ folder so i can add a block later and asign it to only /cat/* ...ed

    To the Young, You might want to keep Your guns.

    We can and will find answers to school killings, very sad. But Your going into scary like no one has. First off look behind You. Think of all the people You have seen thur Your eyes since You your born. Dittler took the guns from the public and killed more people then You have seen in Your life time. But it is what lay's ahead that is the most concerning. DO not be naive if it can be thought of and done it is being done. You have scary genetics, nukes at a tipping point, really creepy super selfish people, and do You assume there is no possibility of alien life and if there is will they be peaceful. Or maybe we crack the code that runs the brain and because algorithms in robots can never really come up with organic ideas like the human brain can. So we put all prisoner in chairs feed them thur their veins, parallel all their brains to make these giant brain farms and these amazing ideas start popping out. The only problem You are in there, can never rest because it feels like Your being shocked and You no longer have free thought. There are a million possibility's. There is a reason we were given guns it is to preserve our republic...ed

    Make ei button. https://pendleton-or.us/questions/howto-d8-database

    Go to "Structure/Block layout/Custom block library/add custom block here is the JS it is just a simple JS alert box. JS is client side which means it does not have to talk to the server so it works on every thing and instantly plus pure JS the program is pre loaded in Your browser so it does not need to load. Save it as full html oops back up before You paste the JS select "Full HTML" because it resets it self and You have to paste it in the "Source" plus remove the code>/code> tags, i used them to be able to post out side the "Source" . Then go to "block lay out" after Your save, go down to "content" then click "place block" chose the block by the title You gave it "Configure block" comes up, i do not want the title to show so uncheck that. Then click pages, i want to "Show for the listed pages" i want it on alpha and cat. Enter one path per line like /alpha then the next line /cat then hit save. If You want to move it up just left click hold and move it up or down on the "Block Layout" page.

    Aaa the code> tag does not work here because this is HTML only and drupal uses placeholders for there forms so people can not send code to the database and added the code> tag to the instructions of what could be used...ed

    So the race is on.

    Writer's have done a good job of predicting the future. Ai-Pa Your "personal assistant" has many directions to take, mainly open source will cut the cord. i totally agree augmented reality is the next thing that can reach 90 + % use. Platforms will be built, and of course You will be able to overlay platforms. So You drive into a small town, an actual tumbleweed rolls by. You stop to find Your driving glasses. After putting them on You go, O my words look all that is happning in this town, totally 21 century! You got billboards, ads, events, maps..video?, people with tags w/ messages, as they walk...off the hooook! The whole town comes alive by what You see through Your glasses.

    Some of the errors that can occur on a drupal 8 install.

    PHP requirements from drupal.org: https://www.drupal.org/docs/8/system-requirements/drupal-8-php-requirements The thing about the net's software. Always go for the newest version because it is always moving to the next fast. They are already working on drupal 9. So go for PHP 7.2 . cPanel has different modules that can be loaded. Look thru all the buttons to see if You can see an PHP version button it's usually at the bottom. If so go in and change the version. If not You need to send in an service ticket to Your hosting provider, tell them Your loading drupal 8 and need PHP 7.2 most host will get on these request pretty quick a day or so, O there are more errors to go over, a big one is OPcache everyone are starting to use this in there modules if it is not loaded as an PHP module You will get a bunch of errors, if You read the errors You will notice some say OPcache PHP module not loaded...ed
