Nofollow on IIS

2024-01-13T22:27:58+00:00January 13th, 2024|Categories: Chocolate Bourdain|

Recently I was working on a site that NEEDED to be internet facing during development. VPNs, Firewalls, Corporate overlords. You get the gist..   Anyway... if you even end up in a situation like that, just jump into IIS -> Select the site in question -> Click "Http response" and add a custom HTTP Response [...]

Installing LetsEncrypt CERT on IIS

2024-01-13T20:20:25+00:00January 13th, 2024|Categories: Tech Support|

Spent the better half of a day tapping and clicking around the internet. Save yourself the headache.. check out https://www.win-acme.com/ It's a command prompt based LetsEncrypt installer that's MAGIC. Remember to have incoming ports 80 and 441 open or it will fail.  Apart from that the instructions are self explanatory. I've attached a screenshot of [...]

2024-01-10T18:42:14+00:00January 10th, 2024|Categories: Tech Support|

This was driving me wild so here's my solution. I'm a little fixated with running "sudo" in front of anything that doesn't work the first time. I DID THAT WITH SUDO ... Don't be me lol Problem: The permissions were set incorrectly on install for some reason (it was root not "Kiwami") Solution: Uninstall Expo [...]

WordPress not showing uploaded media / images on IIS

2024-01-13T17:24:14+00:00May 2nd, 2023|Categories: Tech Support|

I recently moved all my websites to Azure (don't judge.. they gave me a really good deal lol). Anyway when I tried to add pictures to a new Wordpress post, they wouldn't appear. The small preview images, or thumbnails, were working fine (in the media library) but no such luck on the websites. Solution: Apparently [...]

Entertainment, E-Commerce, Streaming Media and Social Media Marketing all seem like they should be 4 separate fields of expertise. Boy am I happy I stuck to my guns. Defined on my whiteboard and branching off to similar clients needs has proven to [...]

Ive learned over the years, that understanding something is almost more important than actually doing it . IDK .. maybe its a leadership thing, or just feeding curiosity. Right now im doing a UX course on Udemy and im learning a LOT about color theory, typefaces and general design. I thought I had a general [...]
