  2. Would the above settings work for the current version of Spam Assasin on cPanel? I am looking for some help learning how to congfigure SA as I am new to it an on a few of our older accounts we are being inudated with spam and I can't keep up with it using filters in Outlook anymore. Is there any 'for dummies' settings or help that is current?

  3. Bill!


    The new billing admin area is lovely! Very clean, easy to navigate and AWESOMETASTIC.


    Thanks for the upgrade!


    I just realized that this year is our 10 year TCH anniversary! Thanks for all the awesome service throughout the years!



  4. I'm looking for a PHP Form Mail script that is free that I can use to program a simple intake form with dropdowns, check boxes and radio boxes. I know that stuff is done in HTML, but anyone hip to any great free scripts out there? I have pretty much used WP and Joomla for sites for years, but have the need to implement a PHP form for someone on a static site.


    Thanks in advance!

  5. Sounds like you want a rewrite as opposed to a redirect.


    try something like this:


    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule ^challenge your-actual-page.html [QSA,L]



    This will rewrite challenge to your-actual-page.html but 'challenge' will remain in the address bar.


    Uh-oh, not sure what happened, but when I ported my new site to root, this redirect stopped working.


    The rule I have in htaccess is:

    ## Begin Rewrite Section

    RewriteEngine on

    RewriteRule ^challenge http://nataliebrown.ning.com/page/90-day-challenge [QSA,L]

    ## End Rewrite Section


    I can send htaccess if you PM me your email addy. Some of the file is new as I switched from J1 to J1.5


    Thanks for any help you can give!

    AWESOME! Works like a charm. Thank ye kind sir!


    @BOXTURT... it's been a while! How ya doin?

  7. Ok, here's the scenario:


    I want to create a redirect link and make it simple so people can remember it.

    Something like http://www.natalie-brown.com/challenge


    I want to redirect this link to another site.


    How can I do this in my .htaccesss file?


    Normally for a redirect I would put something like:

    redirect 301 /list.htm http://www.natalie-brown.com/interact/mailing-list.html


    But I usually have to have the .htm or .html


    I want to make it so that I don't have to have that as a part of the link that is being redirected.


    Is this possible and how can I do it?




  8. OK, been fiddling, and realize that this entire line controls the header area

    ><?php if (is_home()) echo('<h1 id="title">'); else echo('<div id="title">');?><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a><?php if (is_home()) echo('</h1>'); else echo('</div>');?>


    If I comment that out the H1 goes away and the area collapses. My question is: do I have to put a div in there or is there some way to modify this line to accept my PNG image instead of doing it via Text H1?


    I just don't want to be deleting or commenting out a portion of code that might be necessary for the template to work properly.



  9. Can anyone help me with a little CSS/DIV issue?


    I am trying to customize a Wordpress template and it is using an H1 tag to put in a text name which links to the domain. I want to replace this with a logo and it not be text.


    Essentially I need to put in a DIV and style it with CSS right? And I guess float the logo left somehow?


    How can I do this as I'm not exactly seeing where in the Header DIV it would go.


    Code for header area (i think) is

    > <body <?php body_class(); ?>>
     <div class="skip-content"><a href="#content">Skip to content</a></div>
     <div id="header" class="clear">
       <div id="follow">
         <div class="wrapper clear">
             <dt><?php _e('Follow:', 'titan') ?></dt>
               <dd><a class="rss" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>"><?php _e('RSS', 'titan') ?></a></dd>
               <?php if ($titan->emailToggle() == 'true') : else : ?>
                 <dd><a class="email" href="<?php if ($titan->feedEmail() !== '') echo $titan->feedEmail(); else echo "#"; ?>"><?php _e('Email', 'titan') ?></a></dd>
               <?php endif; ?>
               <?php if ($titan->twitterToggle() == 'true') : else : ?>
                 <dd><a class="twitter" href="<?php if ($titan->twitter() !== '') echo $titan->twitter(); else echo "#"; ?>"><?php _e('Twitter', 'titan') ?></a></dd>
               <?php endif; ?> 
         </div><!--end wrapper-->
       </div><!--end follow-->
       <div class="wrapper">
         <?php if (is_home()) echo('<h1 id="title">'); else echo('<div id="title">');?><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a><?php if (is_home()) echo('</h1>'); else echo('</div>');?>
         <div id="description">
           <?php bloginfo('description'); ?>
         </div><!--end description-->
         <div id="navigation">
           <ul id="nav">
             <?php if ($titan->hideHome() !== 'true') : ?>
               <li class="page_item <?php if (is_front_page()) echo('current_page_item');?>"><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>"><?php _e('Home', 'titan') ?></a></li>
             <?php endif; ?>
             <?php if ($titan->hidePages() !== 'true') : ?>
               <?php wp_list_pages('title_li=&exclude='. $titan->excludedPages()); ?>
             <?php endif; ?>
             <?php if ($titan->hideCategories() != 'true') : ?>
               <?php wp_list_categories('title_li=&exclude=' . $titan->excludedCategories()); ?>
             <?php endif; ?>
         </div><!--end navigation-->
        </div><!--end wrapper-->


    CSS is


    ------------------------------------------------------------ */
    #header {
     width: 100%;
     border-bottom: 1px solid #EDE7E0;
     background: #443B31 url(../images/nav-background.gif) repeat-x bottom left;
    #follow {
     background: #2F2922;
     padding: 5px 0;
    #follow dl {
     float: right;
     font-size: 1.3em;
    #follow dl dt, #follow dl dd {
     float: left;
    #follow dt {
     font-weight: bold;
     color: #AD9B83;
    #follow dd {
     margin-left: 20px;
    #follow dd a {
     display: block;
     color: #cfc4b6;
    #follow dd a.rss {  padding-left: 20px; background: url(../images/feed-icon.png) no-repeat 0 .2em; }
    #follow dd a.email {  padding-left: 22px; background: url(../images/email-icon.png) no-repeat 0 .35em; }
    #follow dd a.twitter {  padding-left: 19px; background: url(../images/twitter-icon.png) no-repeat 0 .15em; }
    h1#title, div#title {
     float: left;
     padding: 30px 0;
     font-size: 3em;
     font-weight: bold;
     line-height: 50px;
    h1#title a:link, h1#title a:visited, div#title a:link, div#title a:visited  { color: #E9E5E0; }
    h1#title a:hover, div#title a:hover { text-decoration: none; }


    The area I want to change to a logo is here:



    Where do I put the logo div and how do I also put that in the CSS but make sure everything still is the same height etc?


    Thanks for any help you can give! If you want the CSS and PHP file, let me know and I'll supply it.



  10. Hi pickupman,


    Thank you for all that excellent info. I have done the blank index.html to a few directories that I want to protect, but also I have used the Cpanel Index Manager. Thank you very much for pointing that out to me.


    I find it interesting that the indexing is allowed considering I have a robots.txt file in place that Disallows access to certain directories.


    Does this mean that the robots.txt file does not work to disallow them? Or is this robots file for some other purpose?


    I think for now all is working with the .htaccess file. The PHP/MySQL solution is very interesting. How can I get hold of that script with instructions, or is it something you privately developed?


    I am also looking into a solution that OJB suggested via message regarding using a service like SoundCloud to host the files and I embed a widget. I am trying to find out right now what their level of security is on any Mp3 content uploaded to their site.


    Thanks again to everyone. This is an excellent primer on protecting certain content on a site and I think it will be useful to others seeking to do the same.




  11. I just tried downloading from the link you provided in the first post and it seems to be working, forcing a download of your i-appreciate-you.htm file instead.


    However I noticed that the "I Wonder" track seems to have been uploaded and is downloadable from this site:




    Not sure if you are associated with this site in any way but its a heads up.



    Also 'You're Mysterious' seems to have found its way onto:



    Currently fileden seems to be down for me so I can't access the site or the mp3, but it might be worth seeing if you can contact them and get it removed?


    Yes, I had uploaded I Wonder to MacJams. I'm pulling all my tracks from there as i type this. I hope they get deleted from their database also. I could not access the FileDen link. I wonder if it's gone? I used to go around asking for takedowns on those hosting services, but they never seem to get back to me.


    It's getting to the point that fighting piracy is a part time job and I'm *supposed* to be doing other things (like making more music for people to setal!). Sheesh.


    I don't know if this is even worth the fight. Seems people can steal IP if they want to no matter what.

  12. Hi OJB,


    I deleted all the blocked IPs.


    I still am having the issue with that site above and I didn't change my htaccess file. I'm tried to attach my .htaccess file but I don't seem to have permission to do that. Would sending you a PM to mail it help?


    I'm glad you can see the site. But yeah, wow, this file stealing stuff is getting me down. I think most other sites are blocked out but this one. It's just I don't need another thing to monitor and it's getting to be a headache. LOL


    Thanks so much for all your help!

  13. OJB,


    Could this block of rules:

    >## Begin Redirect For File Stealers
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(.+\.)?natalie-brown\.com/ [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
    RewriteRule .*\.(mp3)$ http://www.natalie-brown.com/i-appreciate-you.html [L]
    ## End Redirect For File Stealers



    Be interfering with this block of rules in the .htaccess file?

    >RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://natalie-brown.com/.*$      [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://natalie-brown.com$      [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://new2.natalie-brown.com/.*$      [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://new2.natalie-brown.com$      [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.natalie-brown.com/.*$      [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.natalie-brown.com$      [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.new2.natalie-brown.com/.*$      [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.new2.natalie-brown.com$      [NC]
    RewriteRule .*\.(mp3)$ http://www.natalie-brown.com/i-appreciate-you.html [R,NC]


    I did some stuff within cPanel. Just want to make sure I'm not doing something that is clashing.


    I have deleted the deny IP addresses, so check and see if you can access the pages of my site now.
