Today (after more than five months) I get to write on the blog. And back at breakneck speed with an article to 007 that will make your hair stand on end users WordPress.

I discovered today that the version in WordPress 3.8 (Today we are 4.0) has been enabled by default in the backend the Open Sans font.

For those who do not know, gedit is the text editor of choice for any Linux distribution based on Gnome.

It is primarily used for editing configuration files for system, but supports a large number of programming languages ​​and is expandable with plugins dedicated.

For this reason, before use Brackets, I used Gedit also for editing HTML and CSS.

brackets

Ok, the title is not very good, but I did not know how to explain in a few words Brackets need to write code HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and is also written in HTML, CSS and JavaScript. You are already going to the loop, true?

The basic settings are sparse, but "wandering" between the preferences you can enable different functions to make it a complete editor.

clocky

Today I illustrate a small process, which I highly recommend to those bloggers linked to the development of a certain topic, to automatically warn the reader that the article you are reading is more old man a time of our choosing, and possibly belonging to a certain category. I am thinking especially to my blog, in which information technology can go well today, but it may already be obsolete with the next release of a software, no longer supported by the operating system or ingetrata.

The result will be completely customizable: appear a block (DIV) in the top of the article, with a class of our choice. We will then give us a style to the DIV.
