WordPress login page is the admin section of WordPress site which lets authentic users to login into their site’s dashboard, so they can manage their WordPress site from the back-end. Once you’re logged in to your WordPress dashboard you can publish posts & pages, change appearance, add or delete themes & plugins, add or remove users, and manipulate various site elements.
Once you’re familiar with WordPress, everything becomes quite easy. You can have a better site running under 5-10 minutes. But to edit your WordPress site app per your needs, you’ll first need to login to admin dashboard vi WordPress login page.

FINDING YOUR WORDPRESS LOGIN URL

You can simply access the login page of your WordPress site by entering /login/ or /admin/ slug after your WordPress site’s URL.
http://www.example.com/login/
http://www.example.com/admin/
These URL automatically redirect to the main login page of your WordPress site. If they do not properly redirect, you can make use of following URLs.
http://www.example.com/login.php/
http://www.example.com/admin.php/
The above example URLs are for the WordPress site running on the root domain. If you’re running your WordPress site on a subdomain, then you can access your site’s login page by adding /login/ or /admin/ slug to the subdomain URL. But if that does not redirect properly to the login page, use following URL structure.
http://subdomain.example.com/login.php/
http://subdomain.example.com/admin.php/
Once you’re familiar with these URL, you can easily access WordPress login page of your site or blog.

Windows 10 : How to Disable Login Screen Background Image


Windows 10 included Hero wallpaper that comes as a default wallpaper in final build of Windows 10. It also popped in the same image for the login background.
It might have pleased a few people but most of the people out there don’t seem to have liked it.

DISABLING THE LOGIN SCREEN BACKGROUND IMAGE IN WINDOWS 10

  • Go to Start > type regedit
  • On the folder tree (left side of regedit window), open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Policies > Microsoft > Windows > System
  • By clicking System, you can see (Default) file on the right pane of the window.
  • Right-click on the empty area > New > DWORD (32 bit) Value
  • Name the file DisableLogonBackgroundImage (Remember: Name the file exactly mentioned here)
  • Double-click the file:
    • To remove the Windows Hero background, set the Value data to 1.
    • To restore the Windows Hero background, set the Value data to 0.
This method sets the accent color to the background image in login screen. In the internet, you may find 3rd party software that commits to set user defined image but after the KB3081424 Windows Update, it seems to cause screen flickering issue between Lock Screen and Login Screen.

Today's blog is about a simple issue you sometimes encounter after you rename your machine's hostname. 
Issue: 
[email protected]:~$ sudo cat /etc/hostnameUnable to resolve hostname xenialPlease enter your password:
This issue occurred to me just recently when I renamed my machine name from whoareyou to xenail.
Everytime I encountered this "Unable to resolve hostname xenial" issue

Earlier while I checked my hostname with command sudo cat /etc/hostname the result was xenial.
[email protected]:~$ sudo cat /etc/hostnamexenial

But the hostname was not listed inside /etc/hosts. I checked with command sudo cat /etc/hosts

[email protected]:~$ sudo cat /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.1.1 whoareyou
The exact reason for why the host xenail wasn't listed in hosts is yet unknown. But in order to resolve the issue I did this simple tweak.
I renamed the hostname xenial from /etc/hostname to whoareyou.  and restarted the machine. Then after the issue was no more encountered. As simple as it is.

Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager: Add Network Drive / Shared Folder in Windows Server 2012 R2

Share a folder outside the VM in computer's drive and add a network location inside i.e. from Virtual Machine enabling the Guest Addition. This enables access to your shared folder.

In computing, this situation of inadequate softwares/tools/operating systems occurs quite often if you are a tech junkie who loves experimenting numerous tools or operating systems on your single machine. Harddisk partitioning for dual boot operating system is one popular solution to accommodate two

Today, I did Windows Server 2012 setup on my Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager which was an easy task. But right after I completed the setup, I find out that  I was unable to access my computer files and folders from the virtual machine I set up.

So this blog is about my findings on accessing your machine's drive (file and folders) while you are  using an operating system installed inside your virtual machine. This is actually a simple task and it took me less than five minute to configure but at least half an hour to find the solution.

I'm using Oracle VM Virtual Box Version 5.1.8 r111374(QT5.5.1). While I tried to add a network drive for using local partition as a shared drive on my newly installed Windows Server 2012 in my VM following error was encountered:
Oracle VM requires the VirtualBox Guest Addition be enabled in order to add shared folder. The error message also also tells how to use virtual machine inside the virtual machine. Our task now is to install guest addition. To do so:
  • Go to Devices menu
  • Select Insert Guest Additions CD image
Install the Guest Addition for Virtual Box. after installation of Guest Addition, we are now able to add the guest drives to access from virtual machine. Now this is how we add shared drives:
  • Right Click your Virtual Machine
  • Click Settings
  • Click Shared Folders

  • Add a Machine folder
  • Not that in order to access any folder from you virtual machine you first need to change the folder properties and share it. Only the shared folders are accessible.

After you've shared a folder outside the VM in your computer's drive and added a network location from the inside  i.e. from your Virtual Machine enabling the Guest Addition. you can now easily access the shared folder.



This was a simple yet useful tips that I've shared in this blog. On my Next blog I will share how to download files from your web browser (Internet Explorer which is the default browser available) in a Windows Server.

Gmail.com or Googlemail.com

Google offers its service under two different domains Gmail.com and Googlemail.com



Just today, I came to know that Google offers its service under two different domains Gmail.com and Googlemail.com. And I thought of doing little digging on what actually is this?  As @gmail.com is most common among us and most users, for people from some countries @googlemail.com was the only option to use Google's email service.

When we sign up for Gmail account we get the email address in the format [email protected] which we see most often around the web. Users in Germany and United Kingdom have got [email protected] by default unless they registered an account before June 2005 and October 2005 as they were allowed to keep the gmail.com address in this case.
Later on,
Users from the United Kingdom have seen change as Google announced to phase out googlemail.com address. New registrations from the UK also got a gmail.com email address while old users have the choice to convert their googlemail.com address to gmail.com. Only users from Germany were left with googlemail.com email address.
Lately,
Google managed to obtain the rights to use Gmail in Germany in 2012. June 2012 onward, all new users from Germany also get's gmail.com email address.

Is Google Mail and Gmail same thing?

Yes, it's same thing but you can only have one Google email address, but e-mail's sent to any of the address (@gmail.com or @googlemail.com) will be delivered to you. You can also set up a custom from which address you want to send mail.

Are Gmail and Googlemail interchangable?

Yes, the two Google mail domains are interchangeable. Mails sent to [email protected] will reach [email protected] users and vice verse.

How to make gmail.com to googlemail.com or vice versa?

Firstly you nee to have a Google account it may be [email protected] or [email protected] When you login to your Google account then follow the following steps.
  • On the left most corner of the screen click on setting menu (gear icon)
  • Under setting choose Account and Import section and in that section there is an option Send mail as [email protected] or googlemail.com


  • Click on add another email and when the new window appears enter the new domain you wish to [email protected] or [email protected] and click Next Step button. 
  • Finally, Set which email address you want to set as your default email address.

FREEING UP GOOGLE PHOTOS STORAGE

You can download all of your Google Photos to your local machine using Google Takeout.

Visit Google Takeout page and select the app Google Photos and click the “next” button to grab all the photos from your Google Account.

Blogger Tips:How To Add Dynamic Pages in Blogger?

Today in this blog we will be showing you following Customization on Blogger which helps in presenting and organizing your individual blogs in separate pages with the help of Labels.These tips are some of the basics HTML implementations which most of the bloggers implement during their blogger setup. I hope this basic tips will help you somehow.
  • Adding Labels in your Menubar
  • Removing the Status Message from your code which displays the Label Info 

One disadvantage of hosting your blog in blogger is that, you cannot submit your post in separate pages. You can add as many page as you want too. These pages are labeled as domainname.com/p/pagename and are static. If you want to customize them, it will take a great effort and technical expertise. But instead of adding pages which are static, you can use Labels.
Labels are words that identifies as article falls under which category. So with the use of Labels you can have bunch of articles under a category. Then you can add your categories in the Menubar. Adding categories in the menubar acts like new pages in your blog.Below are the steps which will illustrate how to add search labels in menubar:

Adding Labels in your Menubar

  1. Load your Website in a web browser
  2. Inspect the Element of your menubar
    (Right Click + Inspect Element)
  3. You can see that menubar is wrapped inside the division with id menu-wrapper in the HTML. 
  4. Now go to your Blogger Dashboard
  5.  Click Template  and click Edit HTML
  6. Click inside the code and find the element menu-wrapper
    (CTRL + f)
  7. Below the menu-wrapper you can find the lists of items like Menu or Home listed. Below these sections add your lebel like shown below:
  8. This way you can add search label to your blog in the menubar.
Now that you have added the menubar, blogger still has one drawback that is it displays a message saying "Showing All posts with Lebellabelname. Show All Posts". A screenshot of the blog aakarpost.com is shown beblow which displays same message for its labels:

Removing the Status Message from your code which displays the Label Info

We can remove this message as well by removing modification of your template. Find for the class "status-msg-wrap" in your template like you located menu-wrapper earlier. Now remove the class status-msg-wrap from the code.


That's all you need to take care about. You need not change the css propertied defined for that class because the css is inactive after it does not find any id or class.


How to Disable App Notifications in Android

Ever been irritated by an application that keeps on pushing you notifications now and then? If its a ‘yes’, then there is an easy way-out to stop receiving the unwanted notifications from any specific app.

In-fact its good to disable notifications if you really don’t really care about them from that particular app, because notifications are also one of the well-known battery parasites.


DISABLE APP NOTIFICATIONS IN ANDROID
I love Subway Surfer; its one of the best mobile game I’ve ever come across. But I hate it then when it sends me notifications like in every 24 hours. Well, that why I turn off the notification from Subway Surfer app.

Here’s what I do to stop any specific app to send me notifications. 
  • Go to settings
  • Open apps 
  • Select that specific app from which you no longer want to receive notification. 
  • Uncheck the show notification option 
In this way, you can go after each application from which you don’t want to receive any sort of notification.
Method 2: There is also another quick way to block notifications from specific apps.
Just hold down the notification, until the notification background changes to dark color and two icons show up to the right. First on is bell icon and the second is info icon. Tap on the i info icon to visit the app notifications settings page for that specific app.
Now turn on the option Block. 
That’s it! You’ll never get any notification from that app ever again.
