If they get changed. What to do?

Hi to all,

I need answers for few questions which I got in my mind.

Why are we using Google, WordPress, Facebook, Twitter and so on…?
My answer to this question, to make use of the feature which has been provided by the company to accomplish my tasks very easily for free of cost.

Recently I noticed in WordPress, they removed the feature called “Install Plugins” from wordpress.com. Beauty of the “Install plugins” feature is we can install any plugin/add-on  in wordpress blog if we have singed up in wordpress, some of the plugins to make the tasks easier are  creating Table of Contents, Code Highlighter, and so..

Now the thing is they removed the feature from wordpress.com and still providing in wordpress.org. So, If i want to utilize this feature I supposed to register my blog in public domain and get support from wordpress.org and then I need to utilize the feature for some amount of cost.

Like that in-case if in future if they noticed that most of the people using wordpress and all of them are depending on wordpress, and if they decided to change everything to some amount of cost, would people withdraw the usage of wordpress? I don’t think so.

Similarly we are using google products like gmail, picasa, groups, and tons more…. If they decided to charge 10$ for creating and maintaining accounts in gmail, then would people like to using that one further? I think at that time they will look for an alternative in-case if they don’t feel the comfortableness on the  new product, am damn sure that they will not hesitate to spend 10$ for an account in gmail.

Here comes my question:   

In future if they changed like above, what will we do…..?
In Otherway, If they stop providing features/products in free of cost and charging for some amount what will we do?

Awaiting for your answers….

Regards,

Highlighting Code in WordPress

Hi to Everyone,

I am not convenient in posting a blog which contains some commands,languages,source-code etc., For this i have explored some concepts to rectify this problem.

I got <pre> tag to highlight the text which is preformatted tag. So it is very useful to highlight the text We can use <pre > tag in two ways

1st way:

When you writing the post in above to an input window you can see two called “Visual” & “HTML” as shown in the figure you can click in the HTML page. It will takes you to HTML editable page in that you can add the <pre> tag </pre>.

(Figure-1)

For Ex:

<pre>
bala@bala-desktop:~$ pwd
/home/bala/Desktop
</pre>

Output:

bala@bala-desktop:~$ pwd

2nd Way:

Instead of adding <pre> tag in HTML editor you can just select the text what should be highlighted and simply select the preformatted option contains in (Kitchen sink). As default that tool bar is in hide, we can make it visible by using the short cut key Shift + Alt + Z.

Just select the text and click the preformatted option, for this we can do it in Visual tab. Now you can click preview option to see the effect.

I had a problem, now this <pre> tag is not working in my theme as working normally in other themes. Then only i understood that it is the work of theme builder. In my blog if i use the <pre> tag means font will only change the background area remains same. Thats the issue….

I can fix this issue manually by adding the background color to the post (i.e.) Here is the code add this code in your HTML area as shown in the (figure-1). Then type the following <div> tag before your code here pwd command is my content so i have used the div tag at starting and ending. You can change the background color depends upon your theme.

Sample:

<div style=”color:white; padding:15px; background-color:black;width:600px; font-family:comic sans ms;”>
bala@bala-desktop:~$ pwd
</div>

In this <div> tag we change Font colour, Background Colour, Width of the Background, Padding, Font name for your choice.

Ex:

bala@bala-desktop:~$pwd

One more option to paste your code which is useful on posting your blog with some programming and scripting language.

Syntax:

The following languages are supported:

  • actionscript3
  • bash
  • coldfusion
  • cpp
  • csharp
  • css
  • delphi
  • erlang
  • fsharp
  • diff
  • groovy
  • javascript
  • java
  • javafx
  • matlab (keywords only)
  • objc
  • perl
  • php
  • text
  • powershell
  • python
  • r
  • ruby
  • scala
  • sql
  • vb
  • xml

In this too am having problem, in my theme it has more line spacing between each line So it seems ugly. That image is stated below, I can fix this problem only by changing my theme, Still I am searching to solve this problem without changing the theme.

Hope you can get idea to highlight your code from any of the way which is explained above.

Thank You
