Easy Video Suite – The Best Video Marketing Player Ever

I own Easy Video Player 2 and it is one of the best self hosted players on the market.  But when I got notified that Easy Video Suite ( a follow up to EVP2 ), I just had to tell you about it. Easy Video Suite is being released on January 15, 2013 at 6 pm eastern time.  You can download it from the big red download link above. If you have ever used Easy Video Player 2, then you will see how much easier this new version is to use.  Easy Video Suite has a much better file management system that keeps better track of all your folders and videos. A powerful feature in this new version is that you can add events inside your videos and force people to optin or share your videos. You can also add delayed calls to action inside your videos!  It will work on a PC and Mac.  Easy Video Suite will automatically convert your video to the best format for the device that it is being played on.  This is big.  No more trying to create different file formats and adding special code to you website.  You can make a video book, where you can have your viewers play chapters instead of just one long video.  EVS will also record your screen, so if you have been wanting to get that...

How to use Firebug for Firefox

If you do any work on your website yourself or on your clients website, one of the best free tools I use is Firebug for the Firefox browser.  This tool allows you to edit websites in your browser window without having real access to the website and it’s code. You can make CSS changes, layout changes, html changes and depending on how good you can code, you can almost change the whole look and feel of a website in your browser.  Then as you make these changes, you just make note of the new code that you altered and...

Hostgator Shut Down My WordPress Website

Hostgator shut down my clients wordpress website.  “Unfortunately, we were forced to disable the script “xxxxxxxxx/public_html/index.php” as it was causing high loading issues on the server. Due to this affecting all of the other accounts on the system, we had to take immediate action for the health of the server.”  This is the email that I received. When I went to check the site, it was down and loaded a forbidden page.  The email also gave me a few tips to try an rectify the issue, which I have since done and I am still waiting for a response back.  But my biggest problem is that this site makes money for my client and now the site has been down for over 24 hours.  Why couldn’t Hostgator notify me first and give me a 48 hour window to correct the problem and then shut me down if I don’t comply?  Do they have the right to “shoot first and ask questions later”?  I guess they feel they do. So I an still waiting for a response back from technical support.  In the meantime make sure you have a caching plugin installed and running on your blog, as this will reduce the load time of your wordpress website.  The one I installed was WP Super Cache. I will keep you updated of the progress of the situation. (UPDATE) – About...

WordPress 3.5 – Where are my Links?

They're gone silly.  If your reading this then you probably upgraded your wordpress website to version 3.5.  In this new version, the developers removed the links panel.  But don't worry, your links are still in your database.  You just need to install a plugin called Links Manager.  They felt that since the links function was not being used by many wordpress users, why have it as a default part of the wordpress 3.5 core.  Now you can choose if you want to have this part of wordpress on your site or not.  Good...

A collection of email subject utf-8 images

Have you ever gotten an email with an image in the subject line and wondered how that person or company did that?  Well they use a special code called utf-8.  Not to go to in depth into it and try to explain how to code your own personal image, I am just going to give you some cool popular images below.  In order to use one of the images, just copy and paste the code exactly as you see it into your subject line and when you hit send, your recipient will get the image in their inbox.  If you want to add text, just type in what you want either before or after the utf-8 code.  Not all browsers will display the images exactly the same.  Just giving you a heads up.  Enjoy. black hammer Movie Que Black fist 2 red hearts graduation cap Black credit card Black starburst policeman face yellow light bulb black telephone fork and knife red apple black jewish star black padlock green bag of money yellow smiley face red heart w/arrow green dollar fork and knife pumpkin green money bag orange shopping bag black star green recycling symbol blue diamond Satelite dish red lips red bow jewish star red apple red car black triangle green checkbox green checkmark black plane black pipe black question mark green money bag yellow light bulb graduation cap...
