Three Major Changes for This Year’s Food and Wine Festival

first_img2. Chocolate Exhibit in the Land–with CutbacksThe Ghirardelli Chocolate exhibit still exists, and free samples are still being handed out, but it has a new location — it is now housed in The Land pavilion in the old Circle of Life theater (soon to be home to the movie Awesome Planet). Unfortunately, the amazing chocolate sculptures do not appear to have made the move with them — the exhibit this year is just a bare-bones story of how chocolate is made. It’s main purpose here is really just to be a store. Share This!With the expected construction coming to Epcot, quite. a few changes have been made this year at Food and Wine. Yes, there’s still an amazing assortment of foods and wines, but some expected features have changed. Here’s three changes to look for1. No Festival CenterWith the old Wonders of Life building under a transformation to become the Play Pavilion, the ability to use that as the Festival Center has gone. Unlike for other festivals where the Festival Center was moved to the Odyssey Pavilion, that also has been turned into a construction zone for an upcoming exhibit about the new transformation coming to Epcot. This means if you’re looking to buy merchandise or wine that you typically would get from the Festival Center, it has now moved to smaller locations throughout World Showcase, with the main festival merchandise area centered around Port of Entry. Exhibits and demonstrations during the festival have moved to World Showplace. 3.  New Indoor Cider BarOver at the Canada Pavilion, the currently under renovation Canada film has been replaced by an indoor “booth”. The Cider Bar offers a couple snacks, ciders, and wines, but most importantly, air conditioning. This is a great place to beat the heat or dodge some weather.What do you think of the changes for this year? Let us know in the comments.last_img read more

How to Fix Internal Links to a Deleted WordPress Page or Post

first_imgImagine you’ve had a website for a few years. And you have a page or post that you no longer want on your site.Instead, you want your readers to visit a different post or page. So you delete the old page or post.Problem solved, right? Not exactly. What Happens When You Delete a Page or PostOnce you’ve removed a page or post from your site, the content is gone. But your internal links to that page or post still exist. They may be links from posts, pages, your menu, footer, or sidebar. Which means, unless you take action, your readers will be directed to your Page Not Found page explaining that the page or post no longer exists.Your readers may get frustrated that they’ve discovered a broken link. They might use your search tool to look for the page or post. Or they may leave your website completely because they haven’t found what they were looking for. That’s something you want to avoid. How to Fix Internal Links to Deleted Posts or PagesYou want to identify and update your internal links so readers will be directed to the page or post you want them to find. That task might sound easy, but it depends on your website.And when it comes to WordPress, you have a number of options available to you, depending on your site setup. Here are the three options I currently recommend.1. Manually updateIf your site is a small site, with only a few pages or posts, you can invest the time to manually update the links to point to the page you want your readers to find. This can work well when your site is small.But if your site is large, and links are scattered all over your site, you don’t want to be manually looking at every page or post for a link to the deleted content. You’ll want to look into automated options to update your content to point to the new page or post. Read on for the second and third options.2. Use a Search and Replace pluginA search and replace plugin allows you to easily search for links and replace them with the link to your preferred post or page. Note: you must backup your database before using the plugin. You’ll find dozens of search and replace plugins in the WordPress repository, but one of my favorites is Better Search Replace. It’s a popular plugin with an average four-and-one half-star rating in the WordPress repository. One of the reasons I like Better Search Replace is that the interface is easy to use. Once you’ve installed and activated the plugin, look in your Dashboard for Tools > Better Search Replace.You’ll be presented with the Better Search Replace administrative page where you can enter the old URL in the Search for form field and the new URL in the Replace with form field.I keep the enabled setting (currently one of the last options on the page) to Run as dry run? It lets me review the changes before I make them. If checked, no changes will be made to the database, allowing me to check the results before I make the changes.Select Run/Search Replace to make your changes.Once you’ve confirmed your changes were made correctly, you’ll want to deactivate and remove the Better Search Replace plugin from your site. There’s no need to keep the plugin installed after you’re done making the change to the new URL.3. Use a 301 Redirect PluginA 301 redirect is a permanent way to redirect from one URL to another URL on the website. It will send your site visitors automatically to the different URL than the one they entered in their browser or the one they found in search engine results. Think of a 301 redirect like forwarding your mail when you’ve physically moved to a new street address. You request mail to be forwarded at your local post office. And the mail system in your country makes sure old mail received at your old address is automatically forwarded to your new address.And you don’t have to worry about it. The mail system takes care of it for you.That’s exactly how a 301 redirect works on websites. Once set up, the 301 redirect will seamlessly send your website visitors to the different URL.WordPress has many different ways you can set up 301 redirects. You can edit your .htaccess file, but it can be a lot easier for many people to use a plugin. My current recommendation is to use the Simple 301 Redirects plugin, a free plugin in the WordPress repository. Once you’ve installed and activated Simple 301 Redirects, you can add redirects from the Settings > 301 Redirects page. Their interface only has two form fields, the Request form field is where you enter the old URL. The Destination form field is where you enter the URL for the page you want readers to be directed to.Note: what you enter in the Request form field should be relative to your WordPress root. That means what you enter in the Request form field will begin with a backwards slash character. Check their documentation for examples.What you enter in the Destination form field can be a relative or absolute URL.Once you’ve select Save Changes, the redirect will be in place. If it’s not as you expected, check that you’ve entered the URLs correctly.SummaryDeleting a page or post on your WordPress site isn’t a one step and you’re done process. You’ll want to check whether the page or post you plan to delete is linked from locations on your site.If it is, use one of the three methods I recommended to make sure your readers find what they’re looking for on your site.

Uncle Sam Wants YOU to Help Track Social Media in Government

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Government#web If you’re a social media-savvy citizen, Uncle Sam wants you to help populate a brand new timeline of the most important moments in government social media use. Earlier today, David McClure, the associate administrator of the General Services Administration’s Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies, introduced a government social media timeline in a blog post on the new citizen engagement platform, and called on the American people to send “the important U.S. government milestones you know about by emailing them to us at [email protected]” Here’s what the timeline looks like so far:U.S. Government use of Social Media on Dipity.If you follow the rapid acceleration in the use of social media by government, you know that the movement to use social media, data, blogs, wikis and online video to make government work better is broadly called “Gov 2.0.” Think of it like Web 2.0 for government. There are unquestionably risks and rewards for the use of Web 2.0 technologies by government. The Obama administration, however, has been willing to try to use the Internet in new ways.For example, did you tweet a question to President Obama in his recent MTV town hall? Did you see the @FCC live tweet the blacked-out Giants-Phillies baseball game yesterday? Did you follow tweets from the Mars Rover or follow @NASA astronauts as they orbit the Earth? In his post McClure wrote that:Gov 2.0 is like any social network- it’s always changing, can be both difficult and rewarding, and occasionally get pretty hairy. And like Facebook, Gov 2.0 is only as valuable as the time you – and your community – put into it. It’s been a rapidly accelerating ride – as more and more interest comes from the White House, and, more importantly, the American public to increase the reach and effectiveness of engaging and communicating with government.McClure cited milestones like the first government YouTube channel, the redesign of with open-source software and the use of Twitter by the State and Defense Departments after the Haiti earthquake. Now, the federal government is looking to the American people – yes, you – to contribute more milestones to the timeline via [email protected] Add a date, provide any sourcing information and keep eye on the evolution of this government social media timeline. UPDATE: An alert reader in Washington pointed out that Uncle Sam’s timeline probably won’t end up including any official recognition of government surveillance of social media use in all contexts. For instance, thanks to the EFF’s FOIA requests, we know that DHS monitored social media during Obama’s inauguration. While it certainly makes sense for @FEMA or the @LAFD or the @Boston_Police to be monitoring social media channels during crises, government agencies haven’t always been completely forthcoming about what they’re monitoring, how they’re doing it or why. That’s why ECPA reform and digital due process matter. Given national security concerns, protecting some sources and methods shouldn’t surprise anyone. If we take it as a given that government will be using social media during crises, elections or for greater transparency, however, it’s important that everyone involved know who’s really listening.

I am bowling exactly the way I want to: Irfan Pathan

first_imgHaving picked his third five-wicket haul in the ongoing Ranji Trophy season during Baroda’s match against Delhi at the Ferozeshah Kotla on Wednesday, left-arm seamer Irfan Pathan has put his case forward for a slot in the squad for India’s tour to Australia in the best possible manner.With Praveen Kumar ruled out of the Test series Down Under and a perennial question mark over Zaheer Khan’s fitness, Irfan has leapfrogged a few in the pecking order of fast bowlers. But the Baroda pacer is not looking too far ahead.”We play in domestic cricket and hope to play at the international level and that is my dream as well. Playing for India, if it happens, I will be the happiest. But I am only concentrating on playing for Baroda and not thinking of national selection,” Irfan said after the second day’s play.”I am bowling exactly the way I want. If I want to bowl a full ball, swing it, I am being able to. I am happy the way the ball is coming out of my hands,” he said.Explaining his mantra after being in and out of the Indian side, Irfan said he is looking to enjoy his game. “When I came into the Indian team, I was just enjoying the game. So that’s what I am doing now. Today, I was going for wickets. With us one bowler short (Firdaush Bhaja), there was responsibility on me to pick wickets,” he said.last_img read more

Me and LeBron have the same trainer, David Alexander, down in Miami,” Hyde said. “After the game I FaceTime’d LeBron and my trainer. They were super hyped.”Here’s the move Hyde pulled that set social media on fire.

They couldnt believe it was true BreXs Hollywood makeover

first_imgAdvertisement He said the reason they weren’t interested “was because they didn’t think it was real, they couldn’t believe it was true.”So Massett and his co-creators made some changes.Goodbye Calgary, hello NevadaBre-X became the Washoe Mining Corporation and the story moved from the concrete corridors of Calgary to the great state of Nevada. David Walsh became Kenny Wells, Dutch prospector John Felderhof was combined with Indonesian geologist Michael de Guzman to become the dashing South American Michael Acosta (played by Edgar Ramirez). Login/Register With: It’s the largest gold scandal in mining history, but the screenplay wouldn’t sell: Hollywood didn’t believe it and, even worse, it was Canadian.When Gold screenwriter Patrick Massett first heard the true story of David Walsh, the salesman who founded the Calgary company Bre-X, he felt like he’d struck the motherlode.“We couldn’t believe that no one would have this story. We called our agents and said ‘Is anyone producing a Bre-X fraud story?’ The answer was no. No one had even heard of it, probably because it was a Canadian story and Americans are very focused on American stories,” Massett told Peter Armstrong, host of CBC’s On the Money.
