Installing SSL using OpenSSL on a WAMP localhost | phpJoel Image via Wikipedia I’m working on a project that is requiring me to use SSL (to make a https connection) on my local installation of WAMP. After much searching and a couple tries, it appears that I finally got it working. Before starting with all the key stuff, I installed the OpenSSL binaries for Windows into the System directory. The following is ripped from a comment buried on Again in the command prompt, go to C:\wamp\Apache2\bin and run the following command: The command runs and prompts you to enter a PEM pass phrase and verify it. It will then ask you to enter information that will be incorporated into your certificate request. Run the following command: You will be prompted for the pass phrase from the previous step. Run the following command to create a certificate which expires after one year: Create a folder c:\wamp\OpenSSL with the following subfolders: Copy the following files to /certs/: Copy the following files to /private/: Modify the base directory:

Quick Tip – Resizing Images Based On Browser Window Size How Is This Useful? In fluid layouts it is easy to format the text to adjust nicely when the window is resized, but the images are not as fluid-friendly. This Quick Tip shows you how to swap between two image sizes based on the current size of the browser, div, or whatever you decide to make the deciding factor. The technique that will be used can be expanded to cause additional changes upon resize as well, beyond simply image swapping (ie captions, navigation). With that said, let’s get rolling. Step 1 – The HTML You Need That’s nice and bite-sized. Step 2 – Onto the CSS For the sake of simplicity I have excluded any graphical styles such as borders/fonts in the above CSS. Step 3 – Triggering the Change With jQuery When the document is ready, we establish a function (imageresize) which swaps the images depending on the width of the browser. Boom, You’re Done Some of you may wonder why I only have two sizes and didn’t just make the image adjust as a percent of the overall layout. Google+

Building Multi-lingual Joomla 2.5 Sites About a year ago we wrote a tutorial which showed how to build multi-lingual sites in Joomla. This tutorial proved to be one of the most popular we've ever written. However, Joomla has made some updates since last year, and so this is our update to that tutorial. We also now have a complete training class on multi-lingual sites for our members. This tutorial covers how to build a multi-lingual site with only the Joomla core. What you can do is activate the language switcher module and let visitors switch the joomla core labels and headings to their preferred language. Step 1: Activate the plugin Go to Extensions > Plugin Manager.Use the Filter to search for language plugins.Activate the plugins by clicking the red circles. Step 2: Set the basic plugin options You can set the language selection for viewers to always show the default language, or you can have Joomla try to detect the country from the browser settings and open with the correct language. Step 3: Add the content language Example

Implementing Array.shuffle() in Actionscript One useful thing that Actionscript doesn’t offers is the ability to shuffle an array, however this can be accomplished in a blink of an eye and with very few lines of code. Before to implement my own solution, I looked on the web, but solutions provided by others developers looks too complex and too long to type. What I found was based on a for loop and several line of codes to fill a secondary array with the elements in a new random order. My solution instead is based on a while loop (3 lines of code only): First we have to create a new array (arr2) which will contains the elements from the base ordered array (arr), then we use a while loop, which can be translated into english as: “do this until base array is not empty”. I think this is the best and shorter way to implement a shuffle functionality :)
