Q. What is “Facebook remarketing”?

A. Remarketing works by following your leads around the web with related
offers. When a user visits your website they are “cookied” or tagged. To
remarket to these visitors, a code is placed on the page that the user
visits, which then triggers your ads to follow that cookied user around
the web, whether that be on a social media site or on various websites
across the internet. So when you see ads on different pages you visit, it’s remarketing.

Facebook also more commonly refers to remarketing as “Custom Audiences.”
The concept is a bit more refined than the above.  Someone visits your site or interacts with
your brand, they’re tagged with a code you implement to track them.  Then, while they’re scrolling through their Facebook feed, your ad pops up.                       More

A. Let’s say the you have a few paragraphs about Pinterest in the middle of page B.  You want to jump to that article from page A.  On page B you would insert what is called the “anchor code”.  The most descriptive word would be “pinterest”.   So, you would add this code to the place you wish the visitor to land on page B:

<a id=”pinterest” name=”pinterest”></a>.

The hyperlink code on page A would have #pinterest added after the final slash of the page B URL.

Important note: Do not simply copy and paste that snippet of code into your  source code.  You may be bringing in some extraneous code.  What I do is copy and paste that snippet of code into my source code in HTML view.  Then I type out that code right after and then delete the snippet that could have some extraneous code in it.

Q. Should I upgrade to El Capitan?

A. You first should ask yourself what programs are essential for your work.  Then make a Google search that would give you peace of mind.

For instance, in my job I am dependent upon ScreenFlow, Skitch and GIMP.  So, I asked Google, “Does El Capitan work with ___?”  I filled in the blank three times and found that it seems to work perfectly with ScreenFlow and Skitch.

However, this is what I found regarding GIMP: The usual advice given on the forums now is just to start Gimp running and then leave it alone – don’t even touch the keyboard or the mouse, just get up, walk away and go do something else for at least an hour. (Yes, really!) When you come back, Gimp will probably be up and running and you will then have no further problems.

Also, before you upgrade to a new operating system, ask Google, “should I upgrade to ___?”  You want to see what others have posted on social media.

Q. After I have registered a new domain name with a domain registrar such as WhoIs, how do I make it show up on LiquidNet Hosting?

2) Add the domain as hosted in your account. To do so you need to go to My Domains -> Hosted Domains menu( https://us.cloudlogin.co/domains/hosted/ ) and click on the Host Domain button. In the pop-up menu that appears you need to fill in the exact domain name in the text field under “Domain” and click the Add a Host button.

(Please note that after changing the DNS setting, it can take up to 48 hours for the numbers to propagate and be picked up throughout the world wide web.)

Q. How do I password protect a file?

A. This is a multi-step process.  LiquidNet Hosting does not have a system for password protecting a file per se.  You must insert the file into a folder and then password protect the folder.  This is what I tried at first:

  1. Find the file you wish to password protect.
  2. View it in edit mode and click the “text” tab.
  3. Select any part of it and press Cmd/A to select all of it.
  4. Cmd/C to copy into your clipboard
    1. Cmd/V to paste it into a new text file
    2. Save into desktop computer with descriptive name
  5. Open LiquidNet Hosting control panel
  6. Click the Files tab and then double-click the website you wish to work with
  7. Click “new folder” at the top of the page
    1. Give it a descriptive name (no spaces allowed; use hyphens instead)
    2. Click “Create”
  8. Click Advanced > Password Protection > New Password Protected Area
  9. For the host name, select the website with which you are working
  10. Click Browse & then select folder you want
  11. Give yourself a username & password, write them in a secure area and click Add PPA button.
  12. Click Files > Files Manager and select website
  13. Click Upload new files, select file from step 4 above and click Upload New Files button
  14. Click Upload and double-click folder to make sure file is in it.

This did not work right because the permalink settings and rewrite rules of the WordPress website were conflicting with the password protection commands set for the /www/freewebdesign.club/YouTube-Module1 directory.

Use subdomains, for example YouTube-Module1.freewebdesign.club for which you will be able to set proper operational password protection. After this you should only migrate the content of the subdirectories with your components into the root directories of the newly created subdomains.

Create a subdomain:

  • Go to My Domains -> Hosted Domains menu
  • Click on Create a Subdomain button. Menu will appear where in the text field next to Hostname.
  • Fill in the subdomain name, for example YouTube-Module1
  • Choose freewebdesign.club from the drop-down menu to the right
  • Press Add a Host button to create the subdomain.

Q. How do I upload a photo from my desktop to Instagram?

A. I use Deskgram.

  • Enter your Instagram username & password.
  • Click the camera icon at the bottom of the panel
  • Drag and drop your photo from your Finder to the new panel
  • Drag corners of the photo to size it,  click a bottom photo to make changes
  • Click green check mark
  • Make comment with 1 or 2 #keywords in first comment window
  • Enter at least 11 #keywords in the second comment window

Alternately, you can use Gramblr.
