RSGallery Simple Tweak

RSGallery is one the most popular and most reviewed Photo Gallery extension for Joomla CMS. This is a very simple tweak but a very useful one for people who don’t have knowledge about even simple MySQL query structures. And I hope it might be useful for RSGallery users who might not have extra time to look into the code and tweak around the MySQL query. So, here I provide a simple tweak in the RSGallery module to show the Latest or Recent Image from the RSGallery galleries. Using this module you will be able to show all recent images from all the galleries and you can also exclude a gallery from being displayed in that module.

There can be a case where you want to show latest images from one gallery only instead of having all the latest images from all galleries being listed there. For this purpose I made Candid Photos module. Here you can specify which gallery to be used. You will need to put the Gallery ID of the gallery that you want to use for candid photos. Then in the Candid Photos module, recent images from the gallery you specified only will be displayed.

Firefox 3.0 Released

Firefox 3.0 was recently released to be the fastest, most reliable and powerful browser again. The new version of firefox will include many new features like appearance, security and bug fixes from previous release. Check the official Mozilla website for more details and download, or here is the download link.

Program Size : 7.8MB
Version : 3.0

There is one small reason why I want to make this post. In the previous post I wrote about the Word Wrapping in firefox, but the fixes I have given there is no longer necessary if you upgrade to Firefox 3.0. The word wrapping is now automatically taken care of in Firefox 3.0.

If there is only Firefox browser in the Web, one third of a web developers work will be reduced.

WordPress Blogroll Icon

After a long pause I came back with this tweak for wordpress. Here it comes, since I work a lot with wordpress these days. :)

I came across this wordpress tweak when one of my client wants a Blogroll Icon to be displayed along with the blogroll link. So here’s the steps on ‘How to show a Blogroll Icon’ in wordpress blog. Originally, what you have with wordpress blogroll is a list of links to websites and blogs. So to show image beside the blogroll link (most probably on the right side of the link text), perform the following steps.

Step1:
First you need to get the plugin ZocPowerblogroll from his website. Download the plugin and this plugin will do most of the work for us.

Word Wrap In Firefox

I came across this problem in Firefox when I put a long link in my post. When there is a long link in your post, Firefox cannot display it properly. Firefox cannot wrap it within the content division and the link will flow out of the division or the last part of the link will not be visible in the post area. However this problem is not there in Microsoft Internet Explorer since word wrap is Microsoft proprietary extension to CSS which is introduced in IE 5.5.

Here the reason why I talk about link specifically is that there cannot be any spaces within a link, so we need word wrap here, that is not taken care in Firefox. When we write a normal paragraph, we usually put white spaces or spaces between each word, so we don’t need to consider the wrapping of word in normal paragraph. As i have said, in a link there is no space, so we need to add a simple code in our css. First, we have to put our link inside the CODE tag as shown below
