Avoid automatic translation of Facebook posts

Once more today my French friend's post was translated.

French is my mother tongue so I sure don't need the automatic translation for French on my Facebook wall. I also like to read a couple other languages, even if I'm not at the best level I only need a little help with a few words here and there, so I like to have those in the original language to improve. The more you read a language the more you learn about it. Same if you live in a country and start talking with people there. You're going to learn a lot more that way than staying at home and not talking to anyone any ...

Getting Rid of Deactivated Facebook Friends

Last updated in Dec 31, 2017 as many things have changed.
Not only that, I also noticed that "dead" accounts are not always really dead.
Read below to learn more.

I was slowly nearing 5,000 friends when all of a sudden I had 5,089!

Wondering what was happening, a post on the Blackhat World forum caught my eye as someone mentioned the fact that he had 5,700 friends. The answer was that deactivated friends do count against your 5,000 friends limit. They are counted as part of your friends even though they do not have an account anymore and they don't get automatically removed ...

Protected Node Password Form

Protected Node Password Form

Protected Node Password FormOnce a node is protected, users who cannot bypass the password are sent to the password form (see image on the side.)

The password form is very simple. It includes one field for users to enter the node password and an OK button.

When the browser of the user sent us a referrer, then the Protected node module adds a Cancel link back to that referrer. Using the global settings, you can force a Cancel link to always be there. When no referrer is available, the Cancel link will send your users to your home page.

The title, information, description and title over the

Protected node Statistics

The page starts with statistics to let you know how pages are protected on your website. All the counts include published and unpublished content.

  • Total nodes — the total number of nodes on your website
  • Unprotected nodes — number of nodes that do not have a password
  • Protected nodes — number of nodes that are current protected by a password
    • Showing title — number of nodes showing their title
    • ...

Protected Node Permissions

The Protected Node module adds permissions to define who has the right to make use of the password feature.

  • access protected content

This is the basic access permission for users. Users who are given this permission can access a protected node as usual, except that they need to enter the password to handle the node.

This is true whether they want to view, edit, delete the node.

  • bypass password protection

Users with the bypass permission can access all nodes that are protected without having to enter the passwords. This is very handy for website administrators and

To Do Rules

The To Do module includes a sub-module called To Do Rules extension.

Events

The Rules extension includes the events as follow.

Each event is sent once per user assigned to a To Do item, including self-assigned users. It includes 4 parameters: the To Do item (a node); the To Do item author; the currently logged in user; and the assigned user. The node supports additional tokens that can be used as conditions (see below).

  • To Do Event Started

This event occurs when the Start button is clicked on a To Do item. This event is sent once.

gVim editor in SeaMonkey and FireFox

Today I discovered It's All Text. This is a FireFox (also works in SeaMonkey) extension that gives you the capability of editing a box of text in your favorite editor.

I love to use SeaMonkey, but the text editor is a bit light when it comes to writing code or fix broken HTML. To palliate to this problem, I often copy and paste the content of my posts from SeaMonkey to gVim, my favorite editor, apply the fixes lightning fast, and then copy the result back in SeaMonkey before saving.

This is a rather tedious process and prone to mistakes. To avoid problems, you can instead install ...

Handling of Pop-up Windows by SimpleMenu

Feature

By default, SimpleMenu is not shown on pop-up windows. There is a flag in the SimpleMenu settings that can be unchecked to avoid this side effect. The pop-up capability is often detected when you open a new tab from the current window. It will depend on the browser and the link being clicked1.

Quick Fix

When the menu is only used by the administrators, it is possible to simply open a new tab and copy and paste the URL from the existing window with the missing menu to the ...
