A 75-year old lady from Georgia (the country, not the state) has perpetrated an impressive feat of international sabotage in what seems to have been an accident of extremely bad luck. While foraging for copper wire near her home in the village of Ksani, the unnamed septuagenarian managed to come across a critical fiber optic cable, one responsible for serving internet connectivity to "90 percent of private and corporate internet users in Armenia" and some in her own country as well. Her swift strike at the heart of said bit-transferring pipeline resulted in all those folks being thrown offline for a solid 12 hours, while the Georgian Railway Telecom worked to find and correct the fault. In spite of her relatively benign motivations, the lady now faces three years in prison for the damage she caused. We'd say all's well that ends well, but this doesn't actually seem like a very happy ending at all.
Custom fields are an excellent feature in WordPress. They allow you to store any extra information (meta-data) about a post that you may want.
When I first started using WordPress as a content management system, I shied away from them, as I thought they would be difficult to use for end-users (i.e. the client), but as I learned more about customizing the administration panels of WordPress, I began to realize what a powerful addition to a WordPress site they could be.
However, adding the ability to search your posts by custom field is a little tricky; the native search feature of WordPress doesn’t search custom field values.
In this guide, I’ll show you how to work with custom fields and how to make them even more powerful by adding the ability to display and filter them.
Add-ons provide many useful features and functions, but they can also cause Firefox to become slower. Some add-ons can even slow Firefox to a crawl and make it difficult to use for regular web browsing. If you think add-ons might be the reason Firefox is lethargic, check the list below for some of the biggest bottlenecks. And remember, for best performance you should disable add-ons that you no longer use regularly.
