After the New Year I always check the footer on websites to see which sites forgot to update the copyright year. If you have a dynamic site, this shouldn’t be an issue at all since you can easily program your site to show the current year. I’ve been using Hugo for a few months to generate my static websites and wanted an easier way to update the copyright year, or better yet, not have to update the copyright year.
OneDrive is that pesky neighbor that keeps showing up when you don’t want them to. Microsoft keeps trying to push their various services down everyone’s throat without any easy method to get rid of it until now. In late 2016 and early 2017 an update to Microsoft Windows 10 makes it so you can easily uninstall OneDrive from Windows 10. It only took them two years to finally give users an option to get rid of an annoying popup that everyone manually disables through the registry editor.
Testing the many web pages of your site to verify that the title and description tags are set properly can seem like a daunting task. Luckily if you own Scrapebox, scraping meta information becomes a lot easier. If you don’t already own Scrapebox, I wouldn’t recommend buying it as a tool just to scrape meta information because there are cheaper options. But if you do like the other tools available inside of Scrapebox, then give it a shot.
Recently I deleted my Microsoft account, but then my Windows 10 computer kept complaining with a notification of “You need to fix your Microsoft Account for apps on your other devices to be able to launch apps and continue experiences on this device.” Because I used a local account on my computer instead of a Microsoft account, I was confused on what I needed to change to get this notification to finally leave me alone.
Does your web application allow people to email a unique e-mail address to perform actions on your site? If not, it’s a great feature to add and can be immensely powerful. The possibilities are endless, but a few common examples of this include customer support systems, posting to social media, or adding tasks to a to-do list. With the To-do List application example, users will send messages to a generated e-mail address that is unique to their account.
