Cannot Access Localhost After Editing etc/hosts and Flushing DNS Cache

Post Thumbnail of Cannot Access Localhost After Editing etc/hosts and Flushing DNS Cache

I was developing a new website that uses Facebook Login as the membership system. I came across this situation where I needed to create a “fake” domain by editing the etc/hosts file. Somehow, after editing the etc/hosts file (following an online guide), I cannot seems to browse http://localhost in my browser anymore. However, I can still browse my local apache server using http://127.0.0.1

Legacy Facebook “Share” Button Codes (Bubble Count, Box Count and More)

Post Thumbnail of Legacy Facebook "Share" Button Codes (Bubble Count, Box Count and More)

Few months ago, Facebook removed the page that allow us to generate codes for their official “Share” button. They replaced it with “Like” button instead. While “Like” button is fast and easy but we cannot add our comment along with the “Like” action. Therefore, in some cases, we still need the old Share button. Fortunately, the sharer.php still exists, so we can add the Share button using Facebook’s official script.
