A small update, now the included demo works correctly again. Thanks Caroline for noticing!
New release: Mostly bugfixes and some code rewrite in the background. Continue reading “Coda PHP & Web Toolkit 4.1”
I’m moving my website to a new server (to have php 5.4) – therefore the website will be down for a few hours.
Everything should be up and running in a few hours and I’ll use this (semi-interesting) blog post to mention how content I’m with my provider:
Today I asked if it was possible to move my account to another server with php5.3/php5.4-support because the current server offers php5.3, but only via CGI. This usually is not a big thing, but there are certain drawbacks: For example it’s not possible to use “flush()/ob_flush()”. (Well you can use it, but the page is being sent in one piece anyway). Of course php via CGI was the last thing I thought of .. Before that I tried lots of different esoteric stack overflow hints (“Always send a Carriage Return!”, “Send at least 200 characters before each flush()” and so on..) until I finally realized it might have something to do with the server.
Well, long story short, a few minutes (sic!) later I received an e-mail that this is no problem and my webspace can be moved to another server if desired.
By the way: It seems the Akismet Anti-Spam plugin has some major problems the last weeks – because 95% of all posts I receive for review are spam. Not a very big deal, because I’m talking about 10 to 30 posts per week and according to the stats last month about 19.000 posts were directly marked as spam… – but if you sent a useful comment and it’s not released yet, well that might be the problem, sorry..
This isn’t meant to be stupid advertising or to promote the partner-link below (you’re of course welcome to use it, but I think it’s only interesting for German users) – it’s rather a recommendation.
So, honestly recommended as provider: all-inkl.com.
Just a small update, removed some debug code and fixing the update link so there’s no useless update warning for the previous non-beta-version
My contribution was setting up and customizing the Magento online shop as well as integrating WordPress.
My Coda plugin uses CSSTidy as a cleanup tool to (re)format CSS code. This works quite well, but it has a “feature” that isn’t always right: It removes single quotes from CSS. In this case the single quotes arond the url are removed:
background:#333 url('images/bg-stripes2.png') repeat 0 0;
In order to disable this behaviour here’s a quick workaround. Please note that updating the plugin removes this modification, so if I release the next version I hope I can add a configuration option for this but in the between time here’s how to quickly stop CSStidy from removing quotes:
- Open the finder and go to (your user folder)/Library/Application Support/Coda 2/Plug-ins (Or “/Coda/” for Coda 1)
- Right click on “PhpPlugin.codaplugin”, select “Show package contents”
- Now navigate to “Contents” and then to “Resources”, you’ll see all the support files for the Coda PHP plugin
- Find the file “csstidy.php” and open it with a Text Editor (I recommend TextMate or Coda itself)
- Go to line 2958 which reads: $_cur_string = substr($_cur_string, 1, -1);
- Add two slashes before this line, like this: // $_cur_string = substr($_cur_string, 1, -1);
- Save the file, exit and restart Coda and you’re done
Of course making a backup of this file is recommended. If you totally screwed up something you can delete the plugin-file and reinstall it without problems :)

After using iTunes Match for about a year now Google Play Music is available here in Germany I gave it a try. I’m quite impressed with Google Play Music so here a quick comparison of both services.Continue reading “Google Play Music vs. iTunes Match”
