A Different Way To Build Websites

Technical stuff that is only technical because I like doing the creative arty stuff for our Word Press website builds:

We have just finished Phase 1 of a website using Elementor as the page Builder inside a template called Phlox. It took me a good 10 days to get my head around all the functionality available and even more time to learn how to use it! However having worked out most of the Blocks that I needed I am now keen to build more websites using this massive system. It has Blocks for almost anything you can imagine and a few more things I didn’t know I could do! There are so many layers that can be added to an image that you can quickly become lost trying to revisit what you have created. However, I started off unable to make anything work, I even broke the template and had to start again to now, loving how much I can do with this combination of template and builder that I even think I can now fix the first template that I broke! It is not a cheap option, with a starting package near the top of our range but it has created a sleek, almost magical website that I can’t wait to show everyone!!!

Access Denied Error in Dropbox

We use Dropbox as a backup solution enabling a sync of our data into the cloud.

One of the limitations of Dropbox is it is all under a single folder, which is all fine if you start from that, but in our situation we had legacy locations for data on our PC.

So along comes Boxifier, a neat application that allows you to choose as many folder around your PC to be added to the Dropbox folder.

It’s a simple solution that just seems to work.

But then it didn’t.

We had a drive crash on the drive that had these folders that Boxifier was enabling for Dropbox.

I wanted to change the location of my Dropbox folder to a new drive and re-sync the data, unfortunately it came up with Access denied. After a bit of mucking around, I realised that there is a setting in Boxifier that prevents Dropbox from editing those folders you have enabled in Boxifier.

Given my situation, I removed that restriction and Dropbox started syncing again.

This also prevented me from moving my Dropbox folder from it’s default location to my new drive.

So hopefully if anyone else has the same set of variables, there is a solution.

Anonymising Visitors IP addresses for GDPR compliance in Google Analytics and All in One SEO

As part of the new General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) compliance that many website and business owners are now required to work to, one of the areas that needs to be looked at is anonymising data that is not relevant.

One of these items is the visitors IP address.

This is useful to determine where people are visiting your website from. In the new GDPR world this can be seen as personally identifiable information (PII) and to take care of this we can anonyimise it.

To do this is in the All in One SEO plugin, you will need to:

  1. Go to All In One SEO > General Settings
  2. Scroll down to the section title Google Settings
  3. Make sure Advanced Analytics Options is enabled
  4. Go down to 
  5. Save the Settings

See the screenshot below

That’s all there is to it

Model Shares Her Packing List for Summer

 

When, while lovely valley teems with vapour around meand meridian sun strikes the upper impenetrable . foliage of my trees, and but a thousand unknown plants .are noticed by when I hear the buzz . of the little world among the stalks,and grow familiar indescribable forms of the insects . and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of bliss; and then, my friend, when darkness overspreads my eyes, and heaven and earth seem to dwell in my soul and absorb its power, like the form of a beloved mistress, then I often think with longing, Oh, would I could describe these conceptions, could impress upon paper all that is living so full and warm within me, that it might be the mirror of my soul, as my soul is the mirror of the infinite God!

O my friend — but it is too much for my strength — I sink under the weight of the splendour of these visions! A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of bliss; and then, my friend, when darkness overspreads my eyes, and heaven and earth seem to dwell in my soul and absorb its power, like the form of a beloved mistress, then I often think with longing, Oh, would I could describe these conceptions, could impress upon paper all that is living so full and warm within me.

The Inevitable Move to Secure Web Pages

As with most things on the internet related to Google, what Google wants, they usually get.

In this instance we are talking about a secure web.

It sounds like a good idea and now Google is taking steps to encourage everyone to move in that direction.

From earlier this year, the Google Chrome browser would identify all pages like login forms and other pages requiring passwords and credit card numbers were flagged as “Not Secure”

This was done as a gentle nudge to website owners that Google would like all pages on the internet to be secure. (Secure in this context means that the pages are protected by SSL or Secure Sockets Layer, and information passed between your computer and the website is encrypted so that anyone snooping on your communications couldn’t read it)

To further this objective, it is reported that in October all pages with forms in them (and if you include a signup form on every page, then all pages will be flagged) will be marked as not secure if the page is not secured using a SSL certificate.

The end goal is that all website across the internet will be secure and any without SSL certificates will be highlighted as being insecure.

From a trust perspective it is important to make sure you move to SSL relatively quickly

To this end we will be ensuring all of our clients’ websites are protected by SSL and we are going through this process at the moment.

If your site is not SSL protected, you need to talk to your host or webs designer about getting it done.
