Moving Wordpress

Relocate method

WordPress supports an automatic relocation method that will figure out and update those values for you automatically. This method is intended to be a quick assist to getting a site working when relocating a site from one server to another.

To use it:

1. Edit the wp-config.php file.

2. After the "define" statements, add this new one:


3. Go to the wp-login.php page in a web browser.

4. Login as per normal.

When the RELOCATE flag is set to true, the Site URL (NOT the home setting) will be automatically updated to whatever path you are using to access the login screen. This will get the admin section up and running on the new URL, but it will not correct any other part of the setup. Those you will still need to alter manually.

Scott Fegette introduces the new auto-align feature in BrowserLab, a powerful tool that automatically aligns screenshots to a specific point of the page, to zero-in on discrepancies between browsers.

Adobe Demos Flash-to-HTML5 Conversion Tool

Adobe already offers HTML5 plugins for Illustrator CS5 and Dreamweaver CS5. Adobe also offers an Illustrator CS5 export tool for HTML5 and JavaScript. What makes this Flash tool different is that it not only supports animations, but elements within those animations. Watch the demonstration video to get an idea of how users will be able to take elements from within the newly converted HTML5 code to re-insert elsewhere on a web page.

Typekit, a company doing its part to help bring better typography to the web, has just announced an new partnership with Adobe.

WOFF as a Standard

Clipped from Mashable :

The Web Open Font Format , or WOFF, is edging ever closer to becoming the de facto standardized format for using fonts on the web.

Backed by Mozilla, Opera and Microsoft, WOFF allows TrueType, OpenType or Open Font Format fonts to be embedded into web pages.

Right now, WOFF support is built into Firefox 3.6 and above, Google Chrome version 5 and above, Internet Explorer 9, and will be supported in upcoming versions of Safari.
