How to Show “Upload” Tab to Logged in Users Only Using a Custom Template in Clip-Bucket v2


Like I wrote in a previous article, How to Check if a User is Logged in When Uploading Videos in Clip-Bucket v2, I further saw that the Upload tab from the top navigation bar was still there, in some custom templates, even when users where not logged in, therefore I decided to write this article to show you how to add a check to see if the user is logged in, if not, don’t show the tab, otherwise, show it. Note, if you are using CB template cbv2new, you don’t need to add this modifications. Learn More

Error When Adding Pinterest Button to Web Site

The other day I had time to go back and look into some errors that I was getting on a web site that I was building. It did not affect the performance or any of the functionality (at least that is what I thought) but it was very annoying to always have to hit the F5 key during debug in VS 2012. I got busy and determined to finish the site, published it and the client really liked it but now was the time for me to go back and look at what was causing this error.

OpenCart – Apache Mod Rewrite & SEO


Apache Mod Rewrite is an Apache mod that provides a rule-based rewriting engine to rewrite requested URLs on the fly. In layman’s terms: you can change the url that people see in your browser bar to something of your choice. There “are” however rules about this that should be followed especially when it comes to Search Engine Optimization and how Google handles the url’s. Most just know how to “turn SEO URL” on from the Opencart system settings but few actually know how it works and to be fair most don’t. This is for those that want a little better understanding on the process.  I find that having knowledge, is power, and gives you the ability to maximize your efficiency on the web with your online commerce store. We won’t delve into the actual code on the APACHE side but more so on the Opencart side. Learn More
