I am not going to learn you how to write good comments as I am not a copywriter and I am not going to be. But like many of you I am really tired of getting hundreds of spammy comments.

Problem with 404 error on /wp-admin/ in WordPress

I have just been moving my blog to new host. Everything was fine after I did it as described at WordPress Codex except admin panel.

When I was trying to login to Dashboard I got 404 error. There is one very simple solution for it. When I was moving files from my old host my ftp client set chmod of /wp-admin/ directory to 775. It won’t work with this permission. All you need to do is to change it to 755 and it should be working again.

URL Shortening Script

Here is a demo of my url shortening script. It let your visitors to make short redirections of their very long url’s (for example it is useful for twitter users where they are limited to 140 characters). Script is made to be as simple as possible. HTML is separated from PHP so it may be customized by editing one HTML file without touching any PHP code! It do not need MySQL database – all data is stored in the file system. Users are redirected by .htaccess file to desired shortcut. Additionally there is administrator backend module to manage (edit/add/delete) url shortcuts. Below you may click for demo installed on my dev server.
