Many secured sites have been compromised, even the ones with SSL encryption. That's scary in terms of keeping customers information confidential.

Good evening developers. I need some assistance with a piece of code that I've been working on. The code dynamically resizes an image map according to the resizing of an image. It keeps the aspect ratio. When the browser is resized the image resizes with it and so does the image map. I have also added something extra to make images pop out when you enter over the map areas with your mouse. The problem that I am faced with is that it works 100% in Firefox but not in IE or Google Chrome. The popup images does not display correctly in those two browsers and I have not yet tested it in Safari.

You can view a live sample here: (reload the page if it's not working immediately)

Agile Software Developers - "We want to spend all our time coding. Remember, real programmers don't write documentation. Working software is preferred over comprehensive documentation thereof."

My latest few projects is based on agile programming principles. "Grow as you go."

When I look back at all the time that was put into Kitchen.net's development, I realized today that it's the perfect example of agile programming even though it is built on the WordPress platform. It started off as a single non-liquid site and now Kitchen.net consists of five website all mixed together in a multi-site which allows users to maintain their log in status across all five of them. Many custom plugins has been developed to enhance the user experience and all sites is fully mobile responsive which allows users to view it in perfect size on their smartphone, tables and... more »

Learn how to learn.

7) Challenge Yourself:

Anything worth doing is going to be difficult. We are built to thrive on challenge. If you expected it to be easy, you thought wrong. Even if you have gained some mastery before, each new task has its own set of challenges. But if you embrace that head on, nothing will get in your way.

You can only change the world by making atoms move.

Learn how to learn.

6) Have Fun Dude:

Lighten up and don't take the process so seriously. Playtime leads to learning. Find a way to make a game out of it or at least enjoy the journey. Your destination is not what you are trying to learn, but the state of being mentally flexible and open.

Learn how to learn.

5) Measure Your Progress:

Why do we have odometers? It's to help answer the question are we there yet?

Anything you are learning, you can measure the progress. How many calories did you burn? How many questions did you answer correctly? How fast did you throw that ball today? Grades in school aren't for you to compare to others, but to compare with your previous self.

Without measurement, you risk flying blind and not getting your daily reward of progress. You wouldn't take a trip around the world without planning out your flights, well do the same with your mind. Find a way to analytically understand how far you have come along.

Learn how to learn.

You need others around you.

4) Surround Yourself With Positivity:

When the going gets tough, the tough find a cheerleader. Cut out that macho crap that you only need yourself. It takes a village to remove the idiots.

As a baby, your parents constantly reminded you how amazing you are. As a teenager, teachers and friends do the same. Find your cheerleader in your group of friends or go online and find others trying to learn the same thing.

The world is a very positive place, learning is happening constantly around us. When you step in to that river, you will get carried away.

Learn how to learn.

Learn to love failure.

3) Embrace Failure:

You will fail. Repeatedly. That's a good thing. Learn to love failure.

Each amazing photograph you see, has a thousand terrible ones behind it. Each home run, was preceded by many strike outs. Each of these swings is a chance to learn. How was that ball faster than the last? How was the light different in this photo? What can I do to make this better?

Success doesn't come over night, it comes after a thousand nights of tear your hair out determination and why didn’t I try that before experimentation.

It's easy to get discouraged when you fail, and that’s when your support network comes in.

Learn how to learn.

Moving slowly is better than not moving at all.

2) Break it down into smaller steps:

Rome might not have been built in a day, but each brick was.

Every large task can be broken down into smaller pieces. If you are a programmer like me, this might come naturally to you. If not, look again at how toddlers do it.

Even if the smallest step like saying the letter A when you are learning the alphabet sounds silly to adults, logical breakdown is a simple tool that toddlers master quickly.

If you are trying to learn how to play a song, first learn a single note, then a chord, then the verse, then the chorus, and then the whole thing.

At each step, practice and repeat until the smallest action becomes muscle memory. All those small steps combined together become a fluid motion when you reach expertise.

I completely forgot to continue to do the 7 day post series on G+ which I started 29 Nov 2013. Here is the first day...

Learn how to learn.

Here is the first point that most of us find ourselves in.

1) Stop Being Lazy:

Two steps forward and one step back is still 50% faster than doing nothing at all.

Seriously dude, we all slack. Before any task occurs, we start to dread it. That dread gains a life of its own but then we finally mature, afterwards we all look back and say, that wasn't so bad right?

Don't look at the height of the wave in front of you, but look at the smallest drop. You can easily beat a drop of water.

Take the first step.

Hi WP Developers,

I am using woocommerce in one of my projects and need some help with coupons.

When creating coupons as admin you can link coupons to selected products or product categories. Those coupons will then be linked to preselected products or categories which can not be changed by users.

Are there ways to allow the user that purchases products to select the product they want to use the coupons on during the checkout process?

Eg. Coupon "ABC123" should not be linked to any product or category allowing the user to select which product to use this coupon on during the cart checkout process.

Any help would be much appreciated. I am posting on forums as well. Thank you

Over the next 7 days I am going to post 7 points that will help you in a way to learn how to learn. I found most of it very useful and it definitely gave me a new perspective over the way I did things.


"I can't do that because I don't know how."

There is nothing more sinister that holds back human growth than these words that we all say to ourselves.

There was a time when you didn't know how to walk. You took fragile steps, falling on your chubby baby butt over and over. Your parents whispered encouragement, each small action a joyous occasion until finally you started tearing around the house.

As a baby the same learning experience happens over and over again. You learned to talk, you learned to ride a bike, to read and write letters. Newton’s law applies here as well, a mind inm... more »

Good day developers :)

I need some input from you in regards with developing a new web application...

I am looking into building a custom web application which involves blogging, online shopping, listings, online training facilities and user interactions for eg. blogging, forums, feedback, reviews etc.

Here is a few questions:
1) Would WordPress be the ideal platform to use to build the application on? Why / Why not?
2) What php platform would you recommend for an application of that size? potentially thousands of active users daily.
3) What is your thoughts on CodeIgniter and CakePHP?
4) What database is recommended for it? MySQL? and database engines? MyISAM or InnoDB...
5) Any other suggestions / platforms?

Your responses will be much appreciated and I will also put it on my personal blog making mention of each one of you.

@PHP and SQL Developers: What would you say is a better way of doing pagination for a web application?

1) To make two database queries: [1] Get all the records based on a query for pagination links purposes, [2] get the records between the limit and offset parameters based on the same query as [1].

2) To make one query to the database to get all the results for a particular query and then using arrays to store results based on the limit and offset vars.

It would be nice to hear what your thoughts are...

I need some advise on something I encountered a few minutes ago.

We are running a WordPress multi-site and for some reason the sites just all of a sudden went down. What puzzled me is that the main WordPress site still loaded normally but none of the other sites on the multi-site network.

I had a look at the .htaccess file an that seemed to have changed causing none of the other sites to load so as soon as I have restored the .htaccess to a previous backup I had, the sites started to work again.

What could the possible cause be for the .htaccess file to change like that? I have not touched that file for over a few weeks now. It is concerning me because I don't want it to happen again.

Please advise if you know what the a possible cause could be for this file change behavior. Thank you.

An experiment Kitchen.net has done and it's pretty cool... All you need is a cup with water in, a light bulb and a microwave. We have only tested it for a few seconds and don't know what happens if it stays in for longer.

We strongly recommend that you do not try this yourself but if you feel like experimenting as well, we are not being held liable if you keep it in for too long and the microwave blows up or something else happens.  You do it at your own risk.

Please visit http://kitchen.net/ for food related articles, recipes, restaurant directories, kitchen tips and tricks and many more cool things. You can also enter the competitions that have been launched for free.

Being gluten intolerant is not a fun position to be in and preparing food for this intolerance is just as bad – especially breakfast food! I’ve recently heard from a friend that there was a recipe on Facebook for pancakes using only bananas and eggs. I was a little sceptical, but tried it out anyway. It works well if you are looking for something that is gluten and dairy free and I will definitely prepare it for friends with these intolerances. - See more at: http://kitchen.net/blog/how-to-make-gluten-free-pancakes/

Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil. Meanwhile, cut a crisscross at the bottom of your tomatoes and when the water boils, add them into the pot. Allow the tomatoes to boil for about 60 seconds, then remove them with a slotted spoon. You will notice that the skin of the tomatoes have come loose where they have been cut. Now the skin will peel easily off. - See more at: http://kitchen.net/blog/how-to-peel-a-tomato/

As living beings, one thing that seems to unite us is food. As humans, whether celebrating, grieving, socialising or comforting, we can be sure of its inclusion in the occasion. It is a basic need for survival, though in cultures worldwide food is prepared and served with much ceremony.  Food critics search for the tastiest dishes, while chefs spend hours in kitchens perfecting them. Children learn from early years to ring in each year since their birth enjoying party food; fast food franchises and restaurants rake in profits; while dietitians and health gurus earn their livings educating on healthy eating. Convalescents and sports stars, vagabonds and kings – however different, we are all the same when it comes to food being one of few things we can’t be without; though for some it’s a lifeline and others a celebration. So is it any wonder that poets, singers and writers are also linked by thiscommon... more »

A while ago Estelle, our WORDNERD at the Kitchen.net office, prepared a lovely dish consisting of ribs and chicken portions, roasted in maple syrup, apple juice and star anise. It was divine! I had a piece of pork belly and decided to prepare it with Estelle’s flavours, and it turned out really great.

If you are trying to eat a little healthier, venison is definitely great to include in your diet as it is lower in fat than beef or lamb. Many people are reluctant to cook with venison, because they are afraid of the “game” flavour, but by adding fresh herbs like thyme and spices like paprika and clove, which have strong characteristics, the “game” flavour is not over bearing at all. However, remember that it is essentially game you are eating, and game will always have a different, slightly heavier flavour than, say, beef. - See more at: http://kitchen.net/blog/venison-cottage-pie/

Directly translated croque monsieur is “crunch mister”. If this very popular French sandwich, which is often associated with street fare, is prepared correctly, you’ll be biting into very crispy and buttery toasted bread with a delicious melted Gruyere or Emmenthal cheese and smoky ham filling. This is not just a ham and cheese sandwich, oh no, it gets a smooth béchamel sauce over the top, that can be browned under the grill or left plain. In some parts of France the sauce is also spread on the inside of the sandwich with the cheese and ham, then toasted and still spread with sauce over the top too! I’ve had it few times with the sauce inside and on top and if you’re not counting calories, it is the best way to enjoy this sandwich! - See more at: http://kitchen.net/blog/croque-monsieur/
