Now featuring https. For years I’ve been wanting to enable https but WordPress fought me tooth and nail on it (thanks SEO friendly rewriting). Well, I finally figured it out. Simply changing the URL in settings was not working, neither was the wp-config by itself. Here is what I ended up adding to wp-config.php.
define('WP_HOME','https://www.mikesaysmeh.com'); define('WP_SITEURL','https://www.mikesaysmeh.com'); if ($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO'] == 'https') $_SERVER['HTTPS']='on';
I also gave it a face lift with a more modern template. Created a new web app and database in Azure.
And since it’s 2017, this blog is officially 10 years old. No joke. I removed a lot of the much older posts that had nothing to do with technology, but the blog officially started in Jan 2007. When it first began it was a blog I wrote in Coldfusion, then classic ASP, then DotNetNuke, and finally WordPress. Wrote as in a couple scripts that did inserts, updates, and selects. It was practice to try and learn how to code, which I never did.
Here are some other things from 2007.
