Prevent Sending HTTP Referer Headers from Your Website

When a user leaves your website through a link or HTTP redirect, a HTTP header of the current page the user is coming from is attached to the new request.

In this tutorial, you will learn of a few different methods to obscure or remove the HTTP Referer header from the request. Keep in mind that some of these options may not always work.

Pack of Shortcodes for Hugo

Today I’m releasing a pack of custom shortcodes for Hugo. A shortcode is a special tag added to a post that will embedded content or add HTML to a post instead of having to manually add the HTML. A few examples of shortcodes include YouTube, Vimeo, and GitHub Gists. The pack I created adds the ability to embed Google Maps, Box Document Preview, Pastebin, Twitch videos, Twitch livestreams, and JSFiddle.

PHP - Check if Production or Sandbox

When developing a site, it’s usually best to work on it on a local sandbox (development) server. This will allow you to quickly test the site without having to upload the files. Also, when working on a sandbox server, you have full control of the software that is running. This lets you test the code on various platforms, servers, PHP versions, and all sorts of other stuff. But there is a down side to working on a local server, it’s that when you are finished you usually have to modify the configuration file and maybe a few other files so that it will work on the production server.
