Last Web Page Update (IE is good for something!!!)

I needed to know when a website was last updated…so I dug around online and on this page:!topic/chrome/FCdMwM7mgPU

I found out this works (seems to not work in Chrome but will in IE.):

  1. Dig around for that long-lost IE icon and click it.
  2. Open a web page
  3. In the address bar, replace the full address with: javascript:alert(document.lastModified)
  4. Hit enter and you will get a pop up with date info


It’s the little things

Sometimes those little touches can give you a nice feel to your site.  Here’s one…add this code to the top of your CSS:

* {  -webkit-transition: all 0.2s ease;  -moz-transition:    all 0.2s ease;  -ms-transition:     all 0.2s ease;  -o-transition:      all 0.2s ease;}

Wherever you have hovers and similar things, it will transition between the 2 states. Try it out!

The idea for this came from one of my favorite sites, CSS Tricks. Article is here:

Converting a site to WP but doing the right SEO stuff

Mainly what you have to do is:

  1. Convert the site to WP
  2. Once all is good with WP edit .htaccess
  3. Above all the wordpress stuff you have to add this type of thing: Redirect 301 /myoldurl.html
  4. You have to add that for each old file that you want to redirect to the new file
  5. There is info all over the net, including here:

301 Redirect and Canonicalization

This is a bit web design related and a bit SEO related but basically watch this video:,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.,cf.osb&fp=cb0215ac689da41e&biw=1089&bih=1024

Then check these sites on how to fix it.



Install WordPress in sub-directory, run in home directory

It’s been a while since I posted.  I’ve been a busy bee!  This post will be short and sweet.

That’s it…see short and sweet!
