- It is a long time ago that I migrated my blog from Windows Live Spaces to WordPress.
- It appeared to me recently that the URL forwarding from the original web pages to WordPress which was part of the migration package that Microsoft offered, had stopped working – regrettably, since I still have old documents pointing to the original pages, and the cryptic URL naming scheme seems to make it difficult to find out where the original ULR pointed to.
- However, it seems that only some forwarding stopped working. If I reformat URL format 1 (which redirects to the WordPress homepage) to format 2, the forward still works:
Looks like I can get classic mode to stick by clicking on “classic mode” in the upper right of edit mode, for creating new posts.
Looks like I cannot for editing existing posts – what gives?
Best advice seems currently to edit through the “dashboard” – unacceptable to me, I often need to revise/refine posts when I browse them.
UPDATE: Well, the test-“Edit” to refine after publishing this post gave me the classic mode of editing – does it remember something? Currently, the behavior seems more like hit or miss…
UPDATE2: The edit for an old post still gets me “Beep – beep – boop” edit mode. Is it possible that the choice of “classic mode” affects only new posts after choosing?!
Update3: OK, looks like my choice of the old-style editor is being remembered now. Not sure that I did something to achieve that.
Bad audio quality in Moodle Kaltura recordings on iMacs under ambient sound conditions. A running log (closed)
- Symptom: See title.
- Cause: While speakers of the 3.5 mm headset take over from the iMac speakers, when plugged in, the 3.5 mm headset micro does not disable the webcam micro. The webcam micro remains the recording source for Moodle Kaltura (mac os x.6, safari 6, flash 10).
- Possible solutions:
1st choice: is there a way for the admin to override this permanently? 2nd choice: is there a way for the end user to override this on a case-by-case basis?
- "The Califone 3066AV is compatible with both Windows and Mac audio outputs (but is not compatible with iMacs)." ("The Wow starts now!").. Do we have to tie up our boom and lavalier microphones for this?
- Try the flash settings by right clicking in the video window, selecting the microphone icon, then choosing the external (= non-webcam) microphone for input.
- Fail. The real culprit is the iMacs line-in audio-in for which you need a preamp to get it to work with analog microphones. Preamps seem to start at $40, but for that I can get a PC webcam (Microphone included).
- Windows Live Writer (2012), in WYSIWYG mode under the “edit” tab, conveniently interprets “tab” keys, when issued within an <ol>/<ul>, as, i.e. converts them into nested lists.
- However, Windows Live Writer does not horizontally indent the nested lists. Rather the lists appear “flat” flush left –(restart in ) only numbering and vertical indentation, like so:
- The underlying source code feature is that <li> get immediately closed, before the nested <ol> gets even opened, as you can see here:
- You can force the indented view by wrapping the <li></li> around the nested <ol></ol?, like so:
- The resulting look with horizontal indentation:
- Unfortunately, to make matters worse, certain work with lists in the “edit” mode make them revert back to the default “flat”view. So you often have to redo your work under the source code tab.
