I wanted to get rid of the ‘read more’ button in this Envo theme. It was overriding the WP settings for showing the full article.  Here is how to do it:

  • In your Word Press admin console go to Appearance>Editor
  • Edit content.php
  • go to line 26, change ‘the_excerpt’ to ‘the_content’
  • update the file and refresh your page.

I also hid the read more button. Go to Appearance>Cutomise>Additoinal CSS, add this to hide the button:

.btn-lg {

If you have some extra long posts  you can just add an “insert read more tag” on the long post.

I made some new Art for my sister’s snowboard. Color on top, Grey-scale on bottom.  I will post a pic of the real deal next week when she gets it.

This was made using Illustrator 9. Illustrator is superior to Photoshop when it comes to huge prints like this. Illustrator creates vector images as opposed to raster images.  Vector images are based on mathematical calculations, where as raster images are based on pixel location and color.  Photoshop is a great application, but it is not as good at printing text or Large Graphics. You would need an infinite amount of pixels to compete with the math based vector image.  Another bonus is that vector images can scale infinitely. You can make the original as small or as large as you want and it will never lose their clarity.  That is if you were using the original illustrator file, this image you are looking at now is just a jpg, which is a raster image. It will pixelate if you scale it too much.

This board is being manufactured by Gilson  – Enjoy the Art!

You will need 3 Virtual machines:

You will need 5 IPs on the same subnet (these are just examples, use whatever you want)

You will need 2 IPs on a separate subnet (these will be the heartbeat IPs, you can use whatever you want)
