It’s very easy to make mistakes with the htaccess Order directive, so if it’s not working here’s some tips to fix it (for Apache web servers).
If we get the ‘Deny, Allow’ bit the wrong way round it won’t do what we expect – at best it will do nothing, at worst it denies everybody access to our site. So tread carefully, keep a backup and test after making changes 🙂
‘Order’ in htaccess does not work like other kinds of regular expressions (regex).
Let’s face it, RSS feeds are not read by ‘normal’ people.
Real, non-techie people haven’t a clue what RSS is, or how to use Google Reader.
That’s OK if your blog is about geek or tech subjects. But if you’re trying to get regular readers for a site about cross stitch, don’t expect RSS readers to hit even the double figures if all you have is a feed button on your blog.
Adding a profile picture to WordPress is much easier than you might think.
But it also doesn’t work in anything like the way WordPress normally handles graphics, so confusion is OK.
So Why Add a Profile Picture to WordPress?
Three very good reasons.
Firstly, in many WordPress themes the profile pic will automatically appear on your author page. I’m talking self-hosted WordPress here, but if you’re using WordPress.org this will also apply if you’re using the author widget.
Secondly, that same photo will appear next to all comments you make on your blog (you know, when you reply to other people who add a comment). Again, depending on theme, but most themes do this.
