PHP – Using oEmbed API to Embed Videos

Post Thumbnail of PHP - Using oEmbed API to Embed Videos

oEmbed is a format for allowing an embedded representation of a URL on third party sites. Which means, if we have a video page’s URL, we can easily get the video thumbnail photo, video title, HTML code to embed it in our website and more. But of course, the video site must have oEmbed support in order for us to do that.

Celebrating Christmas with Google – “Let It Snow”

Post Thumbnail of Celebrating Christmas with Google - "Let It Snow"

This year Google is celebrating christmas with the world. Try searching for “Let It Snow” at google.com and you will see snowflakes start falling from top of the page. Few seconds later, your page will be covered by a layer of snow where you can draw anything you want on the screen. Clicking the blue “Defrost” button will bring the page back to normal, except that snowflakes still continue to fall.

[WordPress] How to Exclude Certain Categories From RSS Feed, Home, Search Page and More

Post Thumbnail of [WordPress] How to Exclude Certain Categories From RSS Feed, Home, Search Page and More

Sometimes we need to exclude a few unimportant categories from our main feed or other pages. A quick search through the web, you will arrive at wprecipes’ tutorial, which unfortunately happens to be erroneous because wrong function was used (as of 15 Dec 2011). Anyway, in this blogpost I am gonna show how to exclude categories in RSS Feed, as well as Homepage, Search Page and more.

There are a number of ways to achieve what we want, but the best and cleanest method is to exclude using WordPress Action Hook.

PHP Smart Date Function – Display Time Elapsed (Difference) Based on a Given Timestamp

Post Thumbnail of PHP Smart Date Function - Display Time Elapsed (Difference) Based on a Given Timestamp

As a web developer, we often need to display dates in our website. As a web user myself, I don’t like to read full dates like “26 November 2011 11:30PM” because it takes me a little while to interpret the date. I prefer reading smart dates like “1 hour ago” or “6 months ago”. Therefore, here I wrote a quick and simple function in PHP that display the time difference/elapsed based on a given timestamp value.

Post Thumbnail of Cat-Ears - Free Social Bookmark Buttons & Logo [PSD + PNG]

This is a set of free social bookmark icons in cat-ears design. I made them when I am bored. They are ready to be downloaded and used right away. Change the colour of the icons using the “Hue/Saturation” layer to match your design. Hide the “cat ears” layer if you don’t like them :)

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
