If you're a big fan of using structured data (aka rich snippets) in your web development, you will appreciate this. So obvious, I wish I had thought of it!
This is an add on for sNews CMS v1.7 to generate a valid XML sitemap for search engines to use. If you're not familiar with XML sitemaps, you should read up at sitemaps.org.
Adding solid color wallpapers/backgrounds for Android devices, the easy way.
Recently when I upgrade my little Dell Streak 7 to Honeycomb 3.2 I lost my favorite wallpapers. I don't really like the default wallpapers available & most of the downloadable wallpapers are just too "busy" for my tastes.
So to get started again I decided I just wanted a simple solid color for a background. Having a heavy graphic wallpaper on a PC is one thing, where much of your actions are menu driven, however on my tablet I have my "desktop" loaded with all my favorite apps & widgets & the live wallpapers seemed to take away too much from the experience for my tastes.
Here's a couple of 1024x600 netbook wallpapers I made today for my netbook running Debian Linux & the XFCE Desktop.
I'm including the Gimp .xcf files in the .zip download for anyone that wants to modify the wallpapers, remove/change logos, etc. I typically make my wallpapers dark and avoid too much contrast, so feel free to change them to suit your tastes.
This is my first sNews CMS mod/hack to be made public in quite some time, I hope someone finds it useful. This modification will add rel="shortlink" & rel="shorturl" tags to the head of your published items.
What do I mean by published items? Basically all your articles & "pages", not the default category/home page views or hard-coded sNews pages (contact, sitemap, etc). We don't really need/want shortlinks to ever-changing pages (home, category views, etc) anyways.
Recently I noticed that my HTC Droid Incredible was constantly disconnecting from my wireless router at home. It would connect if I went into the wireless settings page, and then drop off within a minute or two.
Using a widget, I could see it was constantly stuck at "establishing a WiFi connection...". Naturally I searched all the Android forums and Google for a solution.
