• GEdit FTP browsing / editing under KDE
    (using GNOME bookmarks without Nautilus)

    Problem with using GEdit (v2.30.4 in the moment of writing this post) for FTP browsing/editing under KDE (if you don’t have Nautilus installed in your KDE) is that since it is a GNOME app – you need a way to somehow manage your connections which is usualy done through Nautilus by using GNOME bookmarks (the ones you would create by going to Places -> Connect to Server) and at the moment there is no way to create this bookmarks from within GEdit.

    Anyway, you can do the same thing by editing .gtk-bookmarks file located in your home folder even if you don’t have Nautilus installed. Here’s a few examples of what you can put inside:

    ftp://[email protected]/ bookmark_name
    ftp://[email protected]/:3322 bookmark_name
    ftp://username%[email protected]/ bookmark_name
    ftp://[email protected]/folder_path_option/ bookmark_name
    sftp://[email protected]/ bookmark_name

    The first one is just a regular FTP login bookmark. The second one uses a different port than the default one. The third one is for usernames containing @ (like in the image below) which you have to replace with %40 to differentiate them from @ for domain association. The fourth one uses the folder_path_option like in picture below and the fifth one is for using sFTP. Of course, you can combine all this together depending on your needs…

    Browsing/editing directly from GEdit is much faster than using Filezilla which prompts for uploading every time after you edit and save the file which is kinda annoying, or for example using Krusader which works well with FTP, but if you use sFTP – then it edits files localy instead of online so you have to save them as a new file and upload them again… You get the drift.

  • ReverbNation WordPress plugin not working


    Ok, so you want to merge your bands Reverbnation profile with your wordpress website and you have installed the official WP plugin (v0.1 at the time) but it’s not working when you put the shortcode into a text widget? There are two possible reasons for this:

    1. Your WP theme does not support executing shortcode from widgets – find a fix here.

    2. ReverbNation server sources are commented out in reverbnation-widgets.php – find this file via FTP or through Dashboard and comment out ‘Development’ sources and enable the ‘Production’ ones. It should look like this:

    define("RN_WIDGETS_CACHE_SERVER", 'http://cache.reverbnation.com');
    define("RN_WIDGETS_WEB_SERVER", 'http://www.reverbnation.com');
    define("RN_WIDGETS_AUDIOLIFE_CACHE_SERVER", 'http://cache.audiolife.com//');
    define("RN_WIDGETS_AUDIOLIFE_WEB_SERVER", 'http://ws.audiolife.com/');

    That should do it.

    One more thing – you should probably use HTML source-code ReverbNation provides if you have an account there instead of this plugin because it’s much more versatile and provides you with more options to manipulate the appearance of ReverbNation widgets looks (v0.1).

  • have no fear, for duende is here!


    duende didgeridoo

    With du & da (thank you!) waching over my shoulder, providing me with plenty of wishes and material to work with, we nailed it in due time using wordpress, customizing its bits, and driving it to its very edges. Honestly, I didn’t think wordpress could pull off something like duende (especialy navigation-wise), but there is always space to learn something new. ;)

    I hope you enjoy duende as much as I enjoyed making it… =)

    Navigation missing in apricot wordpress theme fix

    One thing that I don’t know why it isn’t implemented to apricot wordpress theme is the navigation to newer and older entries at the bottom of the page. So, for all of you out there who don’t know how to fix it or are just lazy enough to figure it on your own, do the following:

    Go to and add this few lines to /public_html/wp-content/themes/apricot/index.php after the content section (div):

    <div class="navigation">
    <div class="alignleft">
          <? php next_posts_link('&laquo; Older Entries') ?>
    <div class="alignright">
          <? php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries &raquo;') ?>

    You can see how it looks on the bottom of this page.
