HTML5 Audio Player Not Working – in Firefox Web Browser

Another information technology problem in the world order. This time I was having problems with a third party website that I just recently converted from a WordPress content management system website to a hyper text markup language static website. One of the issues I noticed was that the HTML5 audio player not working in Mozilla Firefox web browser.

You see hyper text markup language version 5 has support for embedded media. You can use the built in <audio> tag to play audio. For example you could provide the playback of songs or even live radio.

However, to my chagrin the embedded HTML5 audio player not working problem only occurred in Mozilla Firefox web browser. As a web devoloper, webmaster, website owner, etc. it is always a good idea to test your websites functionality. Especially, in different web browsers, as currently not all web browsers support the same type of Internet technology.

I am not an exclusive web developer so I did not know that Mozilla Firefox web browser does actually natively support MP3 audio playback, at least at the time of this blog post creation. However, with this hyper text markup language code below, my live audio stream would not work in Mozilla Firefox web browser.

<audio controls>
<source src="http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com:8000/" type="audio/mpeg">
</audio>

I add this line of code below, in addition to the code above, into the hyper text markup language web page that had an embedded audio player.


<source src="http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com:8000/" type="audio/ogg">

I tested the web page with the embedded audio player and viola I could hear audio in Mozilla Firefox web browser. This Stack Overlow question response claims that both Mozilla Firefox and Opera web browsers prefer playing OGGing audio files instead of Moving Picture Experts Group audio layer 3 files also known as MP3. Ironically, Mozilla Firefox supports Moving Picture Experts Group audio layer 3 files in their official documentation.

Also, I did not independently verify whether or not the live streaming audio would work in Opera web browser. I have not installed or used Opera web browser in years. However, as a amateur web developer of sorts, I guess I had better install it one day for website testing purposes.

Interestingly enough Mozilla Firefox web browser supports these audio formats:

  • .wav
  • .wave
  • vorbis
  • .ogg
  • .opus
  • .oga
  • .ogv
  • .ogx
  • .spx
  • .flac
  • .mp3

I fixed another information technology HTML5 audio player not working quagmire, for now at least.

oh another quagmire now this one’s a

0:00:09.519,0:00:14.400
more personal quagmire

0:00:11.040,0:00:14.400
in information technology

0:00:14.639,0:00:19.199
i’m transitioning away from a content

0:00:17.119,0:00:22.240
management system known as wordpress

0:00:19.199,0:00:24.880
with that god-awful guten editor

0:00:22.240,0:00:27.119
to static html because i’ve had it i’ve

0:00:24.880,0:00:30.720
had it with content management systems

0:00:27.119,0:00:33.920
here’s a tip according to google

0:00:30.720,0:00:35.680
they prefer they recommend that you have

0:00:33.920,0:00:37.760
the fastest loading website

0:00:35.680,0:00:39.760
possible so you may not want to use

0:00:37.760,0:00:43.200
wordpress

0:00:39.760,0:00:45.120
it’s slow and that god i fucking hate

0:00:43.200,0:00:47.280
that goon editor i’ll just be blunt

0:00:45.120,0:00:48.399
and honest that’s one that’s the main

0:00:47.280,0:00:50.719
reason why

0:00:48.399,0:00:51.440
i’m converting anet computers.com to

0:00:50.719,0:00:53.440
static

0:00:51.440,0:00:55.039
hypertext markup language all right so

0:00:53.440,0:00:57.600
now this deals with another website

0:00:55.039,0:01:00.000
which i will not disclose

0:00:57.600,0:01:02.320
and i converted that website from that

0:01:00.000,0:01:06.720
god awful good editor and wordpress to

0:01:02.320,0:01:09.520
static html hypertext markup language

0:01:06.720,0:01:10.400
i was live streaming audio on that

0:01:09.520,0:01:12.640
website

0:01:10.400,0:01:14.400
and then i tested it because you know i

0:01:12.640,0:01:15.280
converted the website and so you want to

0:01:14.400,0:01:18.320
test

0:01:15.280,0:01:20.240
and the audio would not work in mozilla

0:01:18.320,0:01:23.280
firefox web browser

0:01:20.240,0:01:26.960
and i was stumped i was like

0:01:23.280,0:01:29.680
incredulous with a chagrin

0:01:26.960,0:01:30.799
and i was like what the fuck so here is

0:01:29.680,0:01:34.000
the solution

0:01:30.799,0:01:36.159
if you have problems streaming audio or

0:01:34.000,0:01:41.840
getting audio to play

0:01:36.159,0:01:41.840
in hyper text markup language

0:01:42.079,0:01:45.520
with the audio tag

0:01:46.479,0:01:49.759
in mozilla firefox and also possibly

0:01:48.880,0:01:52.640
opera

0:01:49.759,0:01:53.360
here is the possible fix this is what

0:01:52.640,0:01:55.920
fixed

0:01:53.360,0:01:57.119
my problem here is the code so let me

0:01:55.920,0:01:59.920
quickly describe

0:01:57.119,0:02:00.719
the code now in hypertext markup

0:01:59.920,0:02:03.680
language

0:02:00.719,0:02:06.000
the current version is five you are able

0:02:03.680,0:02:07.680
to embed both audio and video

0:02:06.000,0:02:09.920
because it has a built-in audio and

0:02:07.680,0:02:11.360
video player it’s not the bling bling

0:02:09.920,0:02:13.920
bling it’s not

0:02:11.360,0:02:16.480
you know holly weird style it’s not even

0:02:13.920,0:02:16.720
las vegas style with the flashing lights

0:02:16.480,0:02:20.640
and

0:02:16.720,0:02:22.800
oh my god the the most gorgeous

0:02:20.640,0:02:23.760
you know media player on the planet oh

0:02:22.800,0:02:26.879
my god no

0:02:23.760,0:02:27.360
it has a basic audio player but it works

0:02:26.879,0:02:31.360
very

0:02:27.360,0:02:33.760
well this is my original code

0:02:31.360,0:02:36.160
so in hypertext markup language you use

0:02:33.760,0:02:39.680
you can use this tag

0:02:36.160,0:02:43.760
to stream and play audio

0:02:39.680,0:02:45.599
in your website audio controls that’s

0:02:43.760,0:02:50.319
the opening tag

0:02:45.599,0:02:53.760
controls tells it to load controls like

0:02:50.319,0:02:57.120
you know volume adjustment

0:02:53.760,0:02:58.720
etc you can use the you can take out the

0:02:57.120,0:03:00.239
controls if you wanted to and it would

0:02:58.720,0:03:02.560
just be the audio tag but i don’t want

0:03:00.239,0:03:05.519
to digress about the specifics

0:03:02.560,0:03:06.000
of each you know tag in hypertext markup

0:03:05.519,0:03:07.840
language

0:03:06.000,0:03:09.200
because i’m really not an expert but i

0:03:07.840,0:03:11.280
know how to code some

0:03:09.200,0:03:12.239
all right now you have to tell the

0:03:11.280,0:03:14.879
source

0:03:12.239,0:03:16.720
so this second line is just telling

0:03:14.879,0:03:20.400
hypertext markup language

0:03:16.720,0:03:20.400
this the source of the audio

0:03:20.480,0:03:27.120
so that it will play in an embedded

0:03:23.680,0:03:30.319
player on the web page

0:03:27.120,0:03:32.319
and then you tell the hypertext markup

0:03:30.319,0:03:33.840
language what is the type what is the

0:03:32.319,0:03:37.200
type of audio

0:03:33.840,0:03:37.200
that you’re wanting me to play

0:03:37.920,0:03:45.519
and audio slash mpeg is actually for mp3

0:03:42.480,0:03:49.360
so officially mozilla firefox supports

0:03:45.519,0:03:50.959
mp3 although mp3 i think requires a

0:03:49.360,0:03:52.560
license i could be wrong but i think

0:03:50.959,0:03:53.920
mozilla has to pay a license fee in

0:03:52.560,0:03:57.680
order for you to

0:03:53.920,0:04:00.799
have the ability to play mp3 audio

0:03:57.680,0:04:04.319
in their web browser mozilla firefox

0:04:00.799,0:04:05.519
now og which i will get to is an open

0:04:04.319,0:04:09.599
source codec

0:04:05.519,0:04:09.599
they don’t require a licensing fee

0:04:10.480,0:04:15.840
however according to a stack overflow

0:04:16.320,0:04:20.239
question post that i found

0:04:21.040,0:04:24.960
both mozilla firefox and opera they

0:04:23.600,0:04:27.759
don’t they support

0:04:24.960,0:04:29.280
mp3 but they don’t necessarily like to

0:04:27.759,0:04:31.360
support it

0:04:29.280,0:04:33.040
it doesn’t work very well so this is

0:04:31.360,0:04:35.759
what fixed my problem

0:04:33.040,0:04:37.919
now here’s the closing tag slash audio

0:04:35.759,0:04:42.960
in hypertext markup language

0:04:37.919,0:04:46.479
the forward slash closes the tag

0:04:42.960,0:04:49.120
it tells the interpreter stop

Need Online Computer Technical Support? Ask a Computer Technician and Solve Your Computer Problem Now.

0:04:46.479,0:04:50.880
stop with the audio controls stop right

0:04:49.120,0:04:53.759
now

0:04:50.880,0:04:55.600
here’s the second line that i added to

0:04:53.759,0:04:57.199
fix my problem

0:04:55.600,0:05:00.240
it’s just this line right here that i

0:04:57.199,0:05:03.199
highlighted it i’m telling it the source

0:05:00.240,0:05:04.560
of the audio it could be an mp3 file it

0:05:03.199,0:05:07.759
could be

0:05:04.560,0:05:08.800
the destination on the web server to an

0:05:07.759,0:05:11.199
mp3 or

0:05:08.800,0:05:12.400
another audio file obviously this is not

0:05:11.199,0:05:14.240
but i’m not going to get into the

0:05:12.400,0:05:16.560
details here

0:05:14.240,0:05:17.680
this is what fixed it i added in this

0:05:16.560,0:05:21.199
type

0:05:17.680,0:05:23.520
so i added two types two lines

0:05:21.199,0:05:24.800
with the same source but with two

0:05:23.520,0:05:28.080
different

0:05:24.800,0:05:31.600
audio types type equals

0:05:28.080,0:05:34.639
audio slash og ogg

0:05:31.600,0:05:37.120
is an open source audio codec that both

0:05:34.639,0:05:39.680
mazuro firefox and opera supports

0:05:37.120,0:05:41.039
and it’s open source and so you don’t

0:05:39.680,0:05:43.120
have to pay a licensing fee

0:05:41.039,0:05:44.639
you know what i’m saying and that’s what

0:05:43.120,0:05:46.240
fixed it i don’t know why that is i

0:05:44.639,0:05:48.560
don’t know if it’s a glitch or a bug

0:05:46.240,0:05:50.560
with mozilla firefox web browser

0:05:48.560,0:05:52.160
but according to the post from stack

0:05:50.560,0:05:55.360
overflow

0:05:52.160,0:05:58.479
i guess it you know both mozilla firefox

0:05:55.360,0:05:58.800
and opera web browsers and notorious for

0:05:58.479,0:06:02.000
not

0:05:58.800,0:06:02.560
necessarily being you know mp3 friendly

0:06:02.000,0:06:04.960
even though

0:06:02.560,0:06:07.280
both web browsers support mp3 so i’m

0:06:04.960,0:06:08.319
just not 100 certain all i know is i fix

0:06:07.280,0:06:10.240
the problem

0:06:08.319,0:06:12.240
now when i went back to that and i can’t

0:06:10.240,0:06:14.080
demonstrate because it’s a third-party

0:06:12.240,0:06:15.919
website it’s an activist website

0:06:14.080,0:06:17.600
and i will never ever discuss it because

0:06:15.919,0:06:20.160
of the american

0:06:17.600,0:06:21.520
communist socialist americans that do

0:06:20.160,0:06:23.840
not want to become free

0:06:21.520,0:06:25.600
they are commies their control freaks

0:06:23.840,0:06:26.080
they will snitch on you they will troll

0:06:25.600,0:06:28.560
you

0:06:26.080,0:06:31.120
they will swat you ad nauseum at

0:06:28.560,0:06:31.120
infinite

0:06:32.880,0:06:38.160
but if you run into this problem where

0:06:35.039,0:06:39.120
for whatever reason html5 audio player

0:06:38.160,0:06:41.840
is not working

0:06:39.120,0:06:43.759
in mozilla firefox web browser this is a

0:06:41.840,0:06:46.800
potential fix

0:06:43.759,0:06:51.440
you you tell you you give the

0:06:46.800,0:06:53.840
html you stipulate two types of audio

0:06:51.440,0:06:55.039
and it actually fixed it before it would

0:06:53.840,0:06:57.520
not work with this

0:06:55.039,0:06:58.720
tag or excuse me with this type i don’t

0:06:57.520,0:07:01.039
know why that’s bizarre

0:06:58.720,0:07:02.639
but when i added the audio alt tag it

0:07:01.039,0:07:06.080
worked and

0:07:02.639,0:07:07.440
i’m my streamer the streams audio alive

0:07:06.080,0:07:11.680
24 hours a day on this

0:07:07.440,0:07:14.960
website it’s actually

0:07:11.680,0:07:17.440
the variable i stipulated was mp3

0:07:14.960,0:07:19.599
so it’s streaming in mp3 but it won’t

0:07:17.440,0:07:22.560
play in mp3 in mozilla firefox

0:07:19.599,0:07:23.680
so i added aug as a type and it and it

0:07:22.560,0:07:27.360
plays now

0:07:23.680,0:07:27.360
i added the additional

0:07:27.440,0:07:32.160
line right here underneath this one in

0:07:30.479,0:07:33.599
between the two tags in between the

0:07:32.160,0:07:36.880
opening and the closing

0:07:33.599,0:07:39.919
i saved it the changes on my web server

0:07:36.880,0:07:42.400
i cleared the web browser cache

0:07:39.919,0:07:44.000
for mozilla and i refreshed that page

0:07:42.400,0:07:46.240
and bam

0:07:44.000,0:07:47.759
it loaded the player correctly if if it

0:07:46.240,0:07:49.759
doesn’t if it will not play

0:07:47.759,0:07:51.039
it could be it could be just you know a

0:07:49.759,0:07:52.800
coding error

0:07:51.039,0:07:54.479
or in this instance it didn’t like the

0:07:52.800,0:07:57.680
type i don’t know why that is

0:07:54.479,0:07:58.319
the button will be grayed out the button

0:07:57.680,0:08:00.000
will

0:07:58.319,0:08:01.680
will not be grayed out and you’ll be

0:08:00.000,0:08:04.560
able to click on it

0:08:01.680,0:08:06.720
if the stream loads correctly it loaded

0:08:04.560,0:08:10.400
correctly i clicked on play and bam

0:08:06.720,0:08:13.360
is start playing so that is my solution

0:08:10.400,0:08:13.840
and you can check out my blog post where

0:08:13.360,0:08:15.840
i

0:08:13.840,0:08:17.280
you know discuss more about this and

0:08:15.840,0:08:18.639
then you can check out the code that

0:08:17.280,0:08:21.479
you’ll need to enter

0:08:18.639,0:08:23.440
now this is for audio only this is for

0:08:21.479,0:08:25.680
html5

0:08:23.440,0:08:26.800
hypertext markup language and this is

0:08:25.680,0:08:32.399
for embedding

0:08:26.800,0:08:35.200
the the built-in audio player that html5

0:08:32.399,0:08:37.039
includes now and how to get it to work

0:08:35.200,0:08:38.240
in mozilla firefox and opera i did not

0:08:37.039,0:08:40.959
test an opera

0:08:38.240,0:08:41.760
i have not installed opera web browser

0:08:40.959,0:08:45.200
in like

0:08:41.760,0:08:47.200
what a century i mean yeah

0:08:45.200,0:08:49.360
five years at least because i never

0:08:47.200,0:08:50.320
really liked opera yeah it worked okay i

0:08:49.360,0:08:53.839
just did

0:08:50.320,0:08:55.760
the interface the graphical user

0:08:53.839,0:08:57.600
interface is just kind of

0:08:55.760,0:08:59.519
i’m sorry but for me it was kind of

0:08:57.600,0:09:02.480
jankety

0:08:59.519,0:09:04.800
i know that slang oh i know you pale

0:09:02.480,0:09:06.959
skinned european supremacists

0:09:04.800,0:09:08.000
number you hate us people with color and

0:09:06.959,0:09:10.160
especially you don’t like

0:09:08.000,0:09:11.839
it when we use slang or we don’t use

0:09:10.160,0:09:15.839
proper european

0:09:11.839,0:09:18.160
terms all right it was janky but

0:09:15.839,0:09:20.240
you know i should probably install opera

0:09:18.160,0:09:22.560
so i could test properly i did have i

0:09:20.240,0:09:25.839
don’t like mozilla firefox web browser

0:09:22.560,0:09:27.360
it’s bloated it’s it’s largest although

0:09:25.839,0:09:29.680
i will say recently

0:09:27.360,0:09:32.640
when i do use it to test my website it

0:09:29.680,0:09:34.640
seems to be functioning faster

0:09:32.640,0:09:37.279
and whereas a couple of months ago i’m

0:09:34.640,0:09:39.519
like what the fuck is this shit

0:09:37.279,0:09:41.200
it is indeed a brave new world for

0:09:39.519,0:09:44.640
people with color in the european pale

0:09:41.200,0:09:48.000
skin supremacist world order

0:09:44.640,0:09:50.000
the web bras are brave you know it loads

0:09:48.000,0:09:52.480
it up pretty quick but fucking mozilla

0:09:50.000,0:09:53.920
firefox but now recently it’s much much

0:09:52.480,0:09:56.320
quicker i’m not sure why that is but i

0:09:53.920,0:09:59.440
do not rely on mozilla firefox but i i

0:09:56.320,0:10:01.279
understand that a lot of individuals

0:09:59.440,0:10:02.720
on the internet they will use mozilla

0:10:01.279,0:10:04.959
firefox they will use

0:10:02.720,0:10:06.640
opera and they will use chrome i did not

0:10:04.959,0:10:09.279
test in chrome

0:10:06.640,0:10:10.000
now brave is based upon chromium but

0:10:09.279,0:10:12.800
it’s not

0:10:10.000,0:10:14.720
exactly like google chrome web browser

0:10:12.800,0:10:17.200
so but i should probably

0:10:14.720,0:10:18.000
install well let’s see i guess i should

0:10:17.200,0:10:21.440
just install

0:10:18.000,0:10:22.240
every web browser ever built including

0:10:21.440,0:10:25.440
netscape

0:10:22.240,0:10:26.560
and how about links the text only i mean

0:10:25.440,0:10:28.959
it gets ridiculous

0:10:26.560,0:10:30.880
and some of these web browser developers

0:10:28.959,0:10:33.920
they don’t necessarily support

0:10:30.880,0:10:38.240
all of the same media codex

0:10:33.920,0:10:40.880
so it’s just but i am much happier

0:10:38.240,0:10:43.279
with i have two websites now that i

0:10:40.880,0:10:46.640
converted from that god awful wordpress

0:10:43.279,0:10:49.200
with that atrocious guten editor

0:10:46.640,0:10:49.920
talk about gluten i mean intolerance i

0:10:49.200,0:10:53.680
mean good

0:10:49.920,0:10:59.600
i have a guten editor intolerance

0:10:53.680,0:10:59.600
you know what i’m saying adios

WordPress 5.5 Sitemap – Location

WordPress 5.5 was recently released for production use. One interesting new feature with WordPress 5.5 is a built in sitemap. However, by default this feature is turned on.

I was a bit confused as to where this sitemap is located. There are quite a few WordPress plugins that are free or paid for that you can use to create a sitemap. Now this sitemap I am talking about is for search engines like Bing, Google, etc.

You see search engines often times look for Uniform Resource Locators by browsing a website’s robots.txt file. Generally, the robots.txt file is located in the document root folder of a website on the server side. For example:

/home/user/public_html/robots.txt

Now not all web servers have the same directory structure to your websites root folder location. The WordPress 5.5 sitemap is actually located at this example below.

http://www.governmentsucks.com/wp-sitemap.xml

According to this WordPress 5.5 sitemap core blog post, WordPress 5.5 now automatically creates a sitemap by default named sitemap.xml.

http://www.governmentsucks.com/sitemap.xml

However, this file does not exist, because actually I had disabled a free plugin that would create a sitemap.xml file for Bing, Google, etc. search engines. I actually found this sitemap instead, wp-sitemap.xml. You see before WordPress 5.5, you had to either manually create a sitemap or install a plugin in order to have a sitemap for Bing, Google, etc. search engines.

Also, the new WordPress 5.5 is supposed to automatically change your robots.txt file with the new default WordPress 5.5 sitemap. However, this website you are reading this blog post on, did not have an updated robots.txt file after I upgraded WordPress to 5.5. Actually, I had upgraded another one of my websites that I administer, and I found this entry in that websites robots.txt file.

User-agent: *
Disallow: /wp-admin/
Allow: /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php

Sitemap: http://www.xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com/wp-sitemap.xml

The most important line is the one above highlighted with bold font. I browsed to:

http://www.anetcomputers.com/wp-sitemap.xml

Sure enough the new WordPress 5.5 sitemap had been successfully created. I went ahead and manually edited this domain’s robots.txt file with the correct Sitemap: declaration. Also, I updated my Google Webmasters sitemap declaration for the WordPress 5.5 sitemap.

You do not necessarily need to include information in both your Google Webmasters account and or robots.txt file about your sitemap location. Some search robots will ignore this file. Also, it is well known that Google indexes websites now a days without you evening notifying their search robot about your websites sitemap file.

Finally, I had already disabled the plugin that had created the old sitemap.xml file. I went ahead and deleted this plugin. I am satisfied for now with this built in WordPress 5.5 sitemap. In summation, if you are confused as to the location of your WordPress 5.5 sitemap, look for sitemap.xml or wp-sitemap.xml using my example domain name above.

WordPress 5.5 Sitemap – Location Video Transcript

0:00:01.599,0:00:07.040
all right well i believe

0:00:03.360,0:00:09.040
i am live and these motherfuckers at

0:00:07.040,0:00:13.360
youtube i’m telling you

0:00:09.040,0:00:16.960
they they fucking changed the goddamn

0:00:13.360,0:00:20.400
streaming platform when on the back end

0:00:16.960,0:00:24.160
it you it used to ask you to click on

0:00:20.400,0:00:26.320
go live you would hit your encoder

0:00:24.160,0:00:27.599
and start streaming and then you had to

0:00:26.320,0:00:30.640
click another button

0:00:27.599,0:00:33.920
that said go live well

0:00:30.640,0:00:37.600
when i started the stream

0:00:33.920,0:00:41.600
the button disappeared and so now

0:00:37.600,0:00:44.000
there’s another button called end stream

0:00:41.600,0:00:47.360
and then also i wasn’t able to edit the

0:00:44.000,0:00:47.360
title of this live stream

0:00:47.600,0:00:51.680
normally it asks you to enter in the

0:00:49.920,0:00:53.440
title and some additional information

0:00:51.680,0:00:56.320
before you even start

0:00:53.440,0:00:57.120
i had to click on edit because it

0:00:56.320,0:01:00.960
pre-filled

0:00:57.120,0:01:02.559
from my from some default all right

0:01:00.960,0:01:05.360
so this is my live stream about

0:01:02.559,0:01:08.560
wordpress 5.5

0:01:05.360,0:01:11.600
which is an the most recent version

0:01:08.560,0:01:15.040
up to this you know video creation

0:01:11.600,0:01:18.640
and one interesting feature of

0:01:15.040,0:01:21.119
wordpress 5.5 is a built-in default

0:01:18.640,0:01:22.560
site map so that’s what this live stream

0:01:21.119,0:01:26.240
is going

0:01:22.560,0:01:28.479
to become now

0:01:26.240,0:01:30.799
two live streams ago i complained about

0:01:28.479,0:01:33.840
how atrocious youtube was

0:01:30.799,0:01:37.759
and then

0:01:33.840,0:01:41.520
my last live stream was perfect

0:01:37.759,0:01:43.759
it was archived within an hour

0:01:41.520,0:01:46.159
and i you know that’s why i live stream

0:01:43.759,0:01:48.079
it so it saves me time

0:01:46.159,0:01:50.399
but i was not aware of the new changes

0:01:48.079,0:01:53.280
all right so let’s get into this

0:01:50.399,0:01:54.240
now let me go through my blog post and

0:01:53.280,0:01:57.200
it’s

0:01:54.240,0:01:58.159
basically 100 percent written except for

0:01:57.200,0:02:00.399
i need to

0:01:58.159,0:02:01.520
add it something additional to it that i

0:02:00.399,0:02:04.799
just thought

0:02:01.520,0:02:07.119
but let’s go over that now so maybe you

0:02:04.799,0:02:10.879
were confused or you’re just

0:02:07.119,0:02:14.000
you know similar to me i’m not an expert

0:02:10.879,0:02:17.520
and speaking of experts how are the

0:02:14.000,0:02:20.400
youtube technology shills surviving

0:02:17.520,0:02:20.720
during this alleged pandemic when they

0:02:20.400,0:02:23.120
live

0:02:20.720,0:02:24.319
in their gated communities how are the

0:02:23.120,0:02:26.720
youtube technology

0:02:24.319,0:02:27.920
shills surviving in their gated

0:02:26.720,0:02:30.400
communities

0:02:27.920,0:02:32.560
complaining about how bad youtube is for

0:02:30.400,0:02:34.319
them

0:02:32.560,0:02:36.400
meanwhile the rest of us we’re just

0:02:34.319,0:02:36.800
lucky like myself that i’m self-employed

0:02:36.400,0:02:39.040
alright

0:02:36.800,0:02:40.160
so topic of discussion and i hope i

0:02:39.040,0:02:43.040
won’t digress again

0:02:40.160,0:02:43.680
i was not ready for that i went i i

0:02:43.040,0:02:45.519
clicked

0:02:43.680,0:02:47.120
you know i went into my encoder i

0:02:45.519,0:02:49.280
started streaming and then all of a

0:02:47.120,0:02:51.360
sudden youtube said that it was live and

0:02:49.280,0:02:53.519
there was a counter and i’m like wait a

0:02:51.360,0:02:55.680
minute i didn’t even get to prepare

0:02:53.519,0:02:58.800
all right which i don’t fucking care

0:02:55.680,0:02:58.800
because i do not

0:02:59.840,0:03:03.120
script any of my videos i actually

0:03:01.360,0:03:06.959
freestyle all them so

0:03:03.120,0:03:10.480
but anyways wordpress 5.5 sitemap

0:03:06.959,0:03:13.200
location i had no idea where it was at

0:03:10.480,0:03:13.599
so with the newest version of wordpress

0:03:13.200,0:03:16.800
up

0:03:13.599,0:03:18.560
until this point of this video creation

0:03:16.800,0:03:22.319
which was what two days ago

0:03:18.560,0:03:25.519
or yeah i think two days ago is when

0:03:22.319,0:03:27.760
wordpress officially released 5.5

0:03:25.519,0:03:28.799
into production and i decided to upgrade

0:03:27.760,0:03:31.440
that same day

0:03:28.799,0:03:33.440
or was it the day after anyways whatever

0:03:31.440,0:03:34.720
it’s been like two or three days

0:03:33.440,0:03:37.280
now i’m not going to go through all the

0:03:34.720,0:03:40.400
features but one interesting feature

0:03:37.280,0:03:43.360
that is brand new

0:03:40.400,0:03:44.239
never before used in wordpress is a

0:03:43.360,0:03:47.680
default

0:03:44.239,0:03:51.519
site map now caveat

0:03:47.680,0:03:52.560
mtor i am only talking about the site

0:03:51.519,0:03:55.840
map that you

0:03:52.560,0:03:58.159
use for search engines if you’re

0:03:55.840,0:03:58.959
a webmaster you know what i’m talking

0:03:58.159,0:04:00.959
about

0:03:58.959,0:04:02.239
there are technically two different site

0:04:00.959,0:04:05.120
maps

0:04:02.239,0:04:08.000
the first site map is xml which is a

0:04:05.120,0:04:08.000
markup language

0:04:08.120,0:04:11.920
sitemap.xml that’s the one i’m

0:04:11.040,0:04:15.599
discussing

0:04:11.920,0:04:18.799
that one is what

0:04:15.599,0:04:21.680
search robots search engines like bing

0:04:18.799,0:04:22.639
and google and others use that is what

0:04:21.680,0:04:24.639
i’m talking about

0:04:22.639,0:04:27.520
i am not talking about the other site

0:04:24.639,0:04:31.680
map that you

0:04:27.520,0:04:33.199
would use for your users

0:04:31.680,0:04:36.320
here’s a here’s a tip i’m going to give

0:04:33.199,0:04:37.840
you a tip right here that i’ve learned

0:04:36.320,0:04:39.199
now i’m not going to discuss maybe

0:04:37.840,0:04:41.199
that’ll be a little bit over time i’ll

0:04:39.199,0:04:44.479
discuss whether or not a site map

0:04:41.199,0:04:47.440
xml the one that search robots use to

0:04:44.479,0:04:48.000
you know browse your domain and then

0:04:47.440,0:04:50.639
gather

0:04:48.000,0:04:53.040
uniform resource locators otherwise

0:04:50.639,0:04:54.560
known as urls otherwise known as what i

0:04:53.040,0:04:55.680
just highlighted at the top of the

0:04:54.560,0:04:58.400
screen here

0:04:55.680,0:04:58.800
ain’t computers dot com slash wordpress

0:04:58.400,0:05:01.039
dash

0:04:58.800,0:05:02.639
five dash five dash site map dash

0:05:01.039,0:05:05.280
location that is a

0:05:02.639,0:05:06.400
url also known as a uniform resource

0:05:05.280,0:05:10.320
locator

0:05:06.400,0:05:11.759
that’s what search engines gather

0:05:10.320,0:05:13.520
and order and then they build big

0:05:11.759,0:05:14.080
databases and then you type in search

0:05:13.520,0:05:17.600
terms

0:05:14.080,0:05:19.919
and then you know boom it displays your

0:05:17.600,0:05:23.120
your link to your website and then you

0:05:19.919,0:05:25.840
land on the uniform resource locator

0:05:23.120,0:05:26.560
a here’s a tip you may want to also

0:05:25.840,0:05:28.880
include

0:05:26.560,0:05:30.000
a separate site map that you can build

0:05:28.880,0:05:33.039
manually

0:05:30.000,0:05:33.759
or with a plug-in for your viewers your

0:05:33.039,0:05:37.039
audience

0:05:33.759,0:05:40.160
somebody browses to ain’tcomputers.com

0:05:37.039,0:05:42.160
and they get the worst you know

0:05:40.160,0:05:43.360
information technology help on the

0:05:42.160,0:05:45.520
internet

0:05:43.360,0:05:46.479
as most of the haters and the trolls

0:05:45.520,0:05:49.680
view my me

0:05:46.479,0:05:49.680
probably possibly

0:05:50.320,0:05:54.320
that would allow them and i actually

0:05:52.320,0:05:56.080
have one right here

0:05:54.320,0:05:57.840
so that that’s a bonus tip but i’m not

0:05:56.080,0:06:01.039
going to talk about that in this video

0:05:57.840,0:06:01.039
but that is a bonus tip

0:06:01.759,0:06:04.800
it may or may not be good for search

0:06:03.520,0:06:06.800
engine optimization

0:06:04.800,0:06:07.840
but this is the other site map which i

0:06:06.800,0:06:11.440
am not talking about

0:06:07.840,0:06:12.800

0:06:19.440,0:06:24.240
now let’s get

0:06:20.080,0:06:28.000
back to the site map that search engine

0:06:24.240,0:06:32.400
robots like bing and google use

0:06:28.000,0:06:35.440
to find out web pages from your website

0:06:32.400,0:06:36.319
so with wordpress 5.5 you they by

0:06:35.440,0:06:39.520
default

0:06:36.319,0:06:42.000
create a sitemap for you and i didn’t

0:06:39.520,0:06:43.919
know where the fuck was that

0:06:42.000,0:06:46.000
i found out about it because i read

0:06:43.919,0:06:48.560
through the new changes i always do that

0:06:46.000,0:06:49.680
well i try to especially the main

0:06:48.560,0:06:52.479
updates you know

0:06:49.680,0:06:52.880
wordpress five to five point one to five

0:06:52.479,0:06:55.840
point

0:06:52.880,0:06:56.800
two to five if it’s five point two point

0:06:55.840,0:06:59.759
one i don’t

0:06:56.800,0:07:01.039
neces i use two but i don’t as much or a

0:06:59.759,0:07:03.919
lot of times i do not

0:07:01.039,0:07:05.360
but this one i went through the new

0:07:03.919,0:07:08.960
features and i was like

0:07:05.360,0:07:11.280
oh they embedded

0:07:08.960,0:07:12.080
their own site map i was like well you

0:07:11.280,0:07:14.160
know what

0:07:12.080,0:07:15.360
i’ve been using a plug-in for like over

0:07:14.160,0:07:17.840
a decade

0:07:15.360,0:07:19.280
and i wonder how good it is and i i

0:07:17.840,0:07:20.240
wanted to see what it looked like but i

0:07:19.280,0:07:22.560
couldn’t find it

0:07:20.240,0:07:24.000
so this is what this video is about is

0:07:22.560,0:07:26.720
where is it located

0:07:24.000,0:07:29.520
now according to the wordpress official

0:07:26.720,0:07:32.720
core blog post pertaining to

0:07:29.520,0:07:33.919
the site map which will be in my blog

0:07:32.720,0:07:35.840
post so

0:07:33.919,0:07:37.759
some people learn in the abstract better

0:07:35.840,0:07:39.599
some people learn visually some people

0:07:37.759,0:07:41.840
learn both whatever

0:07:39.599,0:07:43.039
click on the link in the description box

0:07:41.840,0:07:44.840
of this youtube video

0:07:43.039,0:07:46.160
it’ll take you to my website

0:07:44.840,0:07:50.080
anikapeers.com

0:07:46.160,0:07:53.680
with my blog post about the wordpress 5

0:07:50.080,0:07:55.599
5.5 site map location and it’ll take you

0:07:53.680,0:07:56.840
to the official blog post for the

0:07:55.599,0:08:01.120
fucking

0:07:56.840,0:08:03.039
wordpress core or xml sitemap

0:08:01.120,0:08:04.560
plug it at one time it was a separate

0:08:03.039,0:08:06.080
plugin now

0:08:04.560,0:08:07.840
it’s not a separate plugin that that

0:08:06.080,0:08:09.520
could be also confusing

0:08:07.840,0:08:12.560
now it’s actually built into the

0:08:09.520,0:08:14.000
wordpress core some people don’t like it

0:08:12.560,0:08:16.160
i don’t really fucking care at this

0:08:14.000,0:08:19.120
point and

0:08:16.160,0:08:19.120
so whatever

0:08:19.440,0:08:25.520
according to the wordpress core

0:08:22.560,0:08:27.759
official blog post they claim that the

0:08:25.520,0:08:28.800
site map would be located in the root

0:08:27.759,0:08:32.880
directory of

0:08:28.800,0:08:36.479
your domain name and then it

0:08:32.880,0:08:39.519
the name would be site map dot xml

0:08:36.479,0:08:42.399
well it did not exist on my website and

0:08:39.519,0:08:44.880
i was like well where the fuck is it

0:08:42.399,0:08:46.480
now here is where it could be just me i

0:08:44.880,0:08:48.240
could be an idiot and a moron i’m not

0:08:46.480,0:08:49.920
perfect i’m not an expert i know the

0:08:48.240,0:08:51.680
youtube technology shills

0:08:49.920,0:08:54.080
that live in their castles and their

0:08:51.680,0:08:56.480
gated communities

0:08:54.080,0:08:58.320
while the rest of us are lucky that we

0:08:56.480,0:09:00.320
have jobs or we’re lucky that we’re

0:08:58.320,0:09:03.680
still self-employed

0:09:00.320,0:09:04.800
and you’re gonna see what you know what

0:09:03.680,0:09:06.800
there’s 30 million

0:09:04.800,0:09:08.640
unemployed people in america now because

0:09:06.800,0:09:10.320
of this alleged pandemic

0:09:08.640,0:09:12.640
and they’re not receiving any more

0:09:10.320,0:09:14.399
emergency

0:09:12.640,0:09:16.399
unemployment from the federal government

0:09:14.399,0:09:19.600
because that expired and

0:09:16.399,0:09:22.560
the landlord

0:09:19.600,0:09:25.440
eviction moratorium that also expired so

0:09:22.560,0:09:27.839
you’re gonna see a lot of problems

0:09:25.440,0:09:30.000
in the next couple days weeks months

0:09:27.839,0:09:32.320
years possibly

0:09:30.000,0:09:32.320
all right

0:09:34.720,0:09:40.320
i’m thinking that possibly because i

0:09:37.839,0:09:43.839
think when i upgraded my website

0:09:40.320,0:09:46.720
to wordpress 5.5 i still

0:09:43.839,0:09:48.640
had i think i fucked up i meant to

0:09:46.720,0:09:51.279
disable it

0:09:48.640,0:09:51.839
and i did not that’s what i’m thinking

0:09:51.279,0:09:55.120
so

0:09:51.839,0:09:57.120
it should be located at your domain name

0:09:55.120,0:10:00.480
and i have an example here

0:09:57.120,0:10:04.480
so here’s an example

0:10:00.480,0:10:06.640
of where it

0:10:04.480,0:10:08.720
should be located now this is just an

0:10:06.640,0:10:10.320
example domain name i don’t know if

0:10:08.720,0:10:13.120
anybody has created the

0:10:10.320,0:10:14.640
website government sucks.com if they do

0:10:13.120,0:10:16.240
i would that’d be great

0:10:14.640,0:10:18.000
that would be one of my favorite

0:10:16.240,0:10:21.519
websites ever

0:10:18.000,0:10:23.360
government sucks.com slash sitemap.xml

0:10:21.519,0:10:25.680
that’s according to this official blog

0:10:23.360,0:10:29.600
post that i will show you really quick

0:10:25.680,0:10:33.839
and it show and it stipulates right here

0:10:29.600,0:10:33.839
it says here

0:10:37.040,0:10:40.240
here we’ll just search for it

0:10:44.079,0:10:48.160
it says right here by default the plugin

0:10:47.120,0:10:51.279
creates a sitemap

0:10:48.160,0:10:54.240
index at slash sitemap.xml

0:10:51.279,0:10:55.440
well it did not exist so i thought that

0:10:54.240,0:10:57.120
you know

0:10:55.440,0:10:59.279
they’re trying to pull a fast one now

0:10:57.120,0:11:00.720
this blog post i think may have been

0:10:59.279,0:11:02.959
written before

0:11:00.720,0:11:03.839
5.5 was released and it may have

0:11:02.959,0:11:05.920
referenced the

0:11:03.839,0:11:07.600
the old sitemap plug-in that that

0:11:05.920,0:11:08.079
doesn’t it still exists but you don’t

0:11:07.600,0:11:11.760
need it

0:11:08.079,0:11:15.920
because now with wordpress 5.5 core it’s

0:11:11.760,0:11:19.360
it’s built into wordpress okay

0:11:15.920,0:11:20.800
so then i’ll then i upgraded an another

0:11:19.360,0:11:23.200
one of my websites

0:11:20.800,0:11:25.600
which i will not disclose because of the

0:11:23.200,0:11:29.360
youtube trolls

0:11:25.600,0:11:31.560
and i tried to go to you know

0:11:29.360,0:11:32.720
you know government sucks dot com slash

0:11:31.560,0:11:36.079
sitemap.xml

0:11:32.720,0:11:39.600
it did not exist well then i

0:11:36.079,0:11:44.120
i think i i found it on somebody else’s

0:11:39.600,0:11:47.200
another plugin and they mentioned wp

0:11:44.120,0:11:47.839
sitemap.xml i was like well what the

0:11:47.200,0:11:49.680
fuck

0:11:47.839,0:11:52.160
sometimes you have to you have to just

0:11:49.680,0:11:54.959
that’s just how the internet works

0:11:52.160,0:11:55.920
and sure enough it existed so government

0:11:54.959,0:11:59.839
dot com

0:11:55.920,0:12:02.560
and then slash wp

0:11:59.839,0:12:04.000
minus sign or dash sitemap.xml in it and

0:12:02.560,0:12:06.880
it existed

0:12:04.000,0:12:08.079
so here is i don’t know if it’s a fact

0:12:06.880,0:12:10.560
but i think this is

0:12:08.079,0:12:11.760
maybe what has happened or maybe it’s

0:12:10.560,0:12:14.399
you know what i’m saying

0:12:11.760,0:12:15.600
i think possibly because they know that

0:12:14.399,0:12:16.800
there are plugins

0:12:15.600,0:12:18.560
out there already that will

0:12:16.800,0:12:19.920
automatically create a government

0:12:18.560,0:12:23.920
sucks.com

0:12:19.920,0:12:25.680
slash sitemap.xml file which the plugin

0:12:23.920,0:12:26.560
that i had been using for like at least

0:12:25.680,0:12:30.000
10 years

0:12:26.560,0:12:32.000
it did create that file i disabled it

0:12:30.000,0:12:33.360
and once you disable it that sitemap no

0:12:32.000,0:12:36.560
longer exists

0:12:33.360,0:12:39.680
well my logic tells me that they either

0:12:36.560,0:12:40.480
you know may have in the script it may

0:12:39.680,0:12:44.240
actually

0:12:40.480,0:12:47.839
create wp dash sitemap.xml

0:12:44.240,0:12:50.000
if you’re if the plugin is enabled or

0:12:47.839,0:12:51.440
maybe by default or you know what i’m

0:12:50.000,0:12:53.279
saying that’s what i’m thinking

0:12:51.440,0:12:55.360
because i think i still had it enabled

0:12:53.279,0:12:58.800
even though i i

0:12:55.360,0:12:58.800
told myself to disable it

0:12:58.959,0:13:02.560
so that’s it that’s the location right

0:13:00.959,0:13:06.160
there it’s either

0:13:02.560,0:13:08.160
it could be it could be sitemap.xml2

0:13:06.160,0:13:09.680
it may actually create it it could have

0:13:08.160,0:13:10.320
been because i already had a plug-in

0:13:09.680,0:13:12.560
that had

0:13:10.320,0:13:13.600
already created it and so it then

0:13:12.560,0:13:15.519
renamed it

0:13:13.600,0:13:17.120
i just don’t know because i don’t have a

0:13:15.519,0:13:19.279
website

0:13:17.120,0:13:21.200
that did not have that plug-in enabled

0:13:19.279,0:13:23.920
you know what i’m saying

0:13:21.200,0:13:23.920
and so

0:13:24.320,0:13:28.639
here is where the location could be it

0:13:26.320,0:13:31.920
could be government sucks.com

0:13:28.639,0:13:37.279
for slash sitemap.xml

0:13:31.920,0:13:40.399
or wp dash sitemap.xml

0:13:37.279,0:13:42.560
that’s where it should be located and i

0:13:40.399,0:13:45.680
can even show you on this website

0:13:42.560,0:13:47.440
where it’s located and then i’m done

0:13:45.680,0:13:48.959
the rest is overtime you can leave you

0:13:47.440,0:13:49.600
probably probably are i don’t give a

0:13:48.959,0:13:50.880
fuck

0:13:49.600,0:13:52.720
you probably already left alright i

0:13:50.880,0:13:55.519
don’t give a shit

0:13:52.720,0:13:56.399
i never ever record videos for my

0:13:55.519,0:13:58.720
subscribers

0:13:56.399,0:13:58.720

0:13:59.600,0:14:04.240
i record videos to try to help people oh

0:14:02.639,0:14:05.199
that’s right the youtube technology

0:14:11.839,0:14:16.399
about how bad youtube is to them even

0:14:14.720,0:14:19.199
though they live in gated communities

0:14:16.399,0:14:19.920
and while the rest of us you know the

0:14:19.199,0:14:23.519
irony

0:14:19.920,0:14:25.519

0:14:23.519,0:14:27.519
those that live privileged lives you

0:14:25.519,0:14:27.920

0:15:24.320,0:15:32.160
bing google et cetera that is

0:15:28.079,0:15:35.360
built into the wordpress 5.5 core look

0:15:32.160,0:15:36.800
and you know not i don’t want to go any

0:15:35.360,0:15:39.440
further because this is just

0:15:36.800,0:15:40.639
you know technical but this link on the

0:15:39.440,0:15:44.160
top wp

0:15:40.639,0:15:46.720
site map dash posts dash post one

0:15:44.160,0:15:47.440
this is where all your wordpress posts

0:15:46.720,0:15:51.199
are

0:15:47.440,0:15:55.839
listed look 919.

0:15:51.199,0:15:55.839
i have written 919 blog posts

0:15:56.399,0:16:02.560
it works it works great look

0:15:59.920,0:16:03.360
i’m happy with it this is only for

0:16:02.560,0:16:05.360
search engines

0:16:03.360,0:16:06.720
this xml sitemap is generated by

0:16:05.360,0:16:08.800
wordpress to make your content more

0:16:06.720,0:16:11.759
visible for search engines

0:16:08.800,0:16:12.720
that’s all it is and you know what i’ve

0:16:11.759,0:16:15.680
done

0:16:12.720,0:16:18.240
on all of my websites i went ahead and

0:16:15.680,0:16:22.480
upgraded to 5.5 wordpress

0:16:18.240,0:16:24.800
and i went ahead and disabled and

0:16:22.480,0:16:26.320
removed that plug-in that i’ve been

0:16:24.800,0:16:28.639
using for over 10 years

0:16:26.320,0:16:31.040
to build a site map for search engines

0:16:28.639,0:16:34.000
that’s how much i like it

0:16:31.040,0:16:36.079
because it’s it’s you know it’s

0:16:34.000,0:16:39.839
self-explanatory it does the job

0:16:36.079,0:16:39.839
i mean it works

0:16:40.160,0:16:45.519
there see so it saves me

0:16:43.519,0:16:47.279
resources actually because now i don’t

0:16:45.519,0:16:49.040
have to have an additional plug-in now

0:16:47.279,0:16:50.079
you could manually build one but you

0:16:49.040,0:16:51.519
know

0:16:50.079,0:16:53.279
that can take a lot you could probably

0:16:51.519,0:16:55.360
script it but i don’t want to go off

0:16:53.279,0:16:57.519
into that

0:16:55.360,0:16:59.680
all right so that’s it it actually works

0:16:57.519,0:17:01.519
anything else

0:16:59.680,0:17:03.040
i have all the details and oh here’s

0:17:01.519,0:17:06.160
some additional tips

0:17:03.040,0:17:08.160
now i found the site map

0:17:06.160,0:17:10.319
i think on another blog post that was

0:17:08.160,0:17:12.799
written but then i also double checked

0:17:10.319,0:17:15.439
it by looking at my robots.txt

0:17:12.799,0:17:18.640
so this is completely over time i don’t

0:17:15.439,0:17:21.839
know why i’m talking about this but

0:17:18.640,0:17:22.240
you know what i’m saying a robots.txt

0:17:21.839,0:17:25.280
file

0:17:22.240,0:17:28.720
is just a text file hence the extension

0:17:25.280,0:17:29.200
that tells search engine robots like

0:17:28.720,0:17:33.679
bing

0:17:29.200,0:17:35.360
and google and ad nauseam at infinite

0:17:33.679,0:17:37.280
and i’m sure the youtube technology

0:17:35.360,0:17:38.240
shields they have robots that scour the

0:17:37.280,0:17:41.280
internet

0:17:38.240,0:17:43.280
as they complain about how

0:17:41.280,0:17:45.039
terribly treated they are by youtube at

0:17:43.280,0:17:47.840
the same time that they live in gated

0:17:45.039,0:17:47.840
communities

0:17:50.720,0:17:54.960
it’s just it it tells the robots what to

0:17:54.320,0:17:57.360
do or

0:17:54.960,0:17:58.960
it tells them what directory is allowed

0:17:57.360,0:18:01.520
it tells them what directory

0:17:58.960,0:18:02.240
is not allowed and and another thing you

0:18:01.520,0:18:06.880
can include

0:18:02.240,0:18:06.880
is the sitemap declaration

0:18:07.280,0:18:12.000
so that’s another and then that’s how i

0:18:09.280,0:18:14.240
found out i died i verified it

0:18:12.000,0:18:16.720
on another website that i will not

0:18:14.240,0:18:16.720
discuss

0:18:17.039,0:18:20.240
it was similar to government sucks.com

0:18:19.200,0:18:21.760
but it was not

0:18:20.240,0:18:23.520
you know i don’t think that domain

0:18:21.760,0:18:25.840
exists not yet hopefully somebody will

0:18:23.520,0:18:25.840
create

0:18:26.320,0:18:31.440
and youtube probably will not allow any

0:18:28.720,0:18:33.280
videos you know uploaded

0:18:31.440,0:18:34.720
you know what i’m saying youtube they

0:18:33.280,0:18:37.120
kiss the government’s ass what are you

0:18:34.720,0:18:37.120
talking about

0:18:37.360,0:18:41.200
susan wojcik is a big commie all right

0:18:39.520,0:18:42.960
all right i better stop otherwise i’ll

0:18:41.200,0:18:46.720
get censored

0:18:42.960,0:18:47.120
all right so wp-sitemap.xml i found it

0:18:46.720,0:18:50.240
and

0:18:47.120,0:18:51.440
and i fixed all three of my robot.txt

0:18:50.240,0:18:53.360
files on all my

0:18:51.440,0:18:55.360
websites or actually on all my websites

0:18:53.360,0:18:59.120
not just three

0:18:55.360,0:19:01.919
okay now some people

0:18:59.120,0:19:03.039
think that you don’t need a sitemap.xml

0:19:01.919,0:19:05.200
for robots

0:19:03.039,0:19:06.080
i’m not sure i’m old school i’ve always

0:19:05.200,0:19:08.160
used one

0:19:06.080,0:19:10.240
i’ve just gotten to the habit you could

0:19:08.160,0:19:13.120
test it you could test on

0:19:10.240,0:19:14.000
a website that you already run run

0:19:13.120,0:19:16.880
administrate

0:19:14.000,0:19:18.720
now and see the differences you could

0:19:16.880,0:19:19.600
test the website how much traffic you

0:19:18.720,0:19:22.440
receive

0:19:19.600,0:19:25.840
without a sitemap.xml without a

0:19:22.440,0:19:30.240
robots.txt file

0:19:25.840,0:19:33.600
declaration with the sitemap you just

0:19:30.240,0:19:35.280
sitemap with a capital s colon space and

0:19:33.600,0:19:39.280
then you tell them where the sitemap is

0:19:35.280,0:19:42.640
located take that out

0:19:39.280,0:19:43.760
i don’t know supposedly google and maybe

0:19:42.640,0:19:45.919
bing and i don’t know

0:19:43.760,0:19:48.240
quite a few them they will automatically

0:19:45.919,0:19:49.840
find your website however

0:19:48.240,0:19:52.480
there’s a lot of complaints on the

0:19:49.840,0:19:54.720
internet when you have people that are

0:19:52.480,0:19:56.640
trying to become affiliate marketers

0:19:54.720,0:19:58.960
and they claim that their fucking

0:19:56.640,0:20:02.080
website isn’t receiving any traffic

0:19:58.960,0:20:03.520
even though they used and this is

0:20:02.080,0:20:06.720
another part of overtime

0:20:03.520,0:20:08.720
the google webmasters tool and declared

0:20:06.720,0:20:10.159
the site map there and they still

0:20:08.720,0:20:12.480
weren’t getting traffic

0:20:10.159,0:20:13.200
so it’s up to you and then i’ll give you

0:20:12.480,0:20:15.520
a warning

0:20:13.200,0:20:16.960
you may not want to make any major

0:20:15.520,0:20:19.919
changes

0:20:16.960,0:20:20.880
to certain features like a sitemap that

0:20:19.919,0:20:24.400
xml

0:20:20.880,0:20:25.280
or a robots.txt file or a dot htaccess

0:20:24.400,0:20:27.120
file

0:20:25.280,0:20:28.400
if you’re if if you’re worried about

0:20:27.120,0:20:31.520
traffic

0:20:28.400,0:20:32.240
if you rely on your website for you know

0:20:31.520,0:20:34.240
income

0:20:32.240,0:20:36.919
you may not want to go around fucking

0:20:34.240,0:20:40.400
around with the sitemap.xml

0:20:36.919,0:20:42.159
robots.txt declaration or

0:20:40.400,0:20:45.679
you know without you know thinking it

0:20:42.159,0:20:48.200
through or you may not want

0:20:45.679,0:20:50.080
you may not want to disable your

0:20:48.200,0:20:51.440
sitemap.xml plugin that you’ve been

0:20:50.080,0:20:54.799
using all these years

0:20:51.440,0:20:57.760
just yet i’m i’m satisfied

0:20:54.799,0:20:58.240
so here’s another bonus tip what you can

0:20:57.760,0:21:01.200
do

0:20:58.240,0:21:02.159
is you can go to your to bing also has a

0:21:01.200,0:21:05.440
feature but

0:21:02.159,0:21:06.159
google webmasters and i this is where i

0:21:05.440,0:21:10.159
need to

0:21:06.159,0:21:13.200
edit my blog post and add to it

0:21:10.159,0:21:15.520
i’m not going to go deep into it but the

0:21:13.200,0:21:16.880
google has what’s called google

0:21:15.520,0:21:20.159
webmasters

0:21:16.880,0:21:20.480
and what you do is you add your domain

0:21:20.159,0:21:22.799
name

0:21:20.480,0:21:24.559
government sucks dot com and then you

0:21:22.799,0:21:28.400
tell google

0:21:24.559,0:21:33.240
where your site map is located the exact

0:21:28.400,0:21:36.440
location government sucks dot com slash

0:21:33.240,0:21:40.320
sitemap.xml or slash wp

0:21:36.440,0:21:43.520
sitemap.xml and then google

0:21:40.320,0:21:46.720
they will browse that right away because

0:21:43.520,0:21:49.600
i know because all my websites now

0:21:46.720,0:21:50.760
i went ahead and changed it to the new

0:21:49.600,0:21:53.600
wordpress

0:21:50.760,0:21:55.520
sitemap.xml and

0:21:53.600,0:21:56.960
it it already found it and it already

0:21:55.520,0:22:00.080
browsed it and i already

0:21:56.960,0:22:01.760
listed i didn’t get well one

0:22:00.080,0:22:03.679
i think one website it was still working

0:22:01.760,0:22:06.640
on but

0:22:03.679,0:22:07.360
one other website it found all of them

0:22:06.640,0:22:10.400
and i and i

0:22:07.360,0:22:13.520
compared i compared how many blog posts

0:22:10.400,0:22:16.240
and how many pages i had on that website

0:22:13.520,0:22:18.080
and it matched up what google had found

0:22:16.240,0:22:21.200
in using google

0:22:18.080,0:22:24.240
webmaster tool okay

0:22:21.200,0:22:27.840
anything any other bonus tips that i can

0:22:24.240,0:22:27.840
go through

0:22:28.960,0:22:32.320
if you’re satisfied you may want to test

0:22:31.200,0:22:35.280
it like i said i’m not

0:22:32.320,0:22:36.559
here to cause problems i’m here to help

0:22:35.280,0:22:38.640
people

0:22:36.559,0:22:39.600
so you may want you know caveat emptor

0:22:38.640,0:22:43.039
you may not

0:22:39.600,0:22:45.600
want to do what i do and i when when i

0:22:43.039,0:22:47.360
if i can save resources by disabling a

0:22:45.600,0:22:50.159
plug-in

0:22:47.360,0:22:50.960
i will generally you want to shy away

0:22:50.159,0:22:54.000
from using

0:22:50.960,0:22:55.600
plugins on wordpress the more you

0:22:54.000,0:22:57.200
have the more problems you could have

0:22:55.600,0:23:00.720
all it takes is one plugin

0:22:57.200,0:23:02.960
this is a fact one plugin could be buggy

0:23:00.720,0:23:06.400
it could be slow and it’ll fuck up your

0:23:02.960,0:23:08.960
website and it’ll slow down your website

0:23:06.400,0:23:10.320
so i’m always looking now you can you

0:23:08.960,0:23:13.280
know program a lot of it

0:23:10.320,0:23:14.240
in which is what some people do but so

0:23:13.280,0:23:16.480
once in a while

0:23:14.240,0:23:18.000
in my case i have to i have to try to

0:23:16.480,0:23:20.159
find a plug-in

0:23:18.000,0:23:21.440
but if i can limit the amount of

0:23:20.159,0:23:23.200
plug-ins oh yes

0:23:21.440,0:23:24.880
so i was kind of happy that wordpress

0:23:23.200,0:23:25.760
decided to have their own built-in site

0:23:24.880,0:23:27.840
map

0:23:25.760,0:23:29.840
now i don’t debate i don’t argue i know

0:23:27.840,0:23:31.600
you goddamn fucking nationalistic

0:23:29.840,0:23:33.440
americans that’s all you do is argue

0:23:31.600,0:23:33.919
with each other the the left versus the

0:23:33.440,0:23:37.200
right

0:23:33.919,0:23:39.840
when it’s a pale skinned european

0:23:37.200,0:23:41.679
military dictatorship supremacy society

0:23:39.840,0:23:43.440
based on racism

0:23:41.679,0:23:44.720
you know what i’m saying i know you love

0:23:43.440,0:23:47.840
to argue i don’t

0:23:44.720,0:23:49.679
some people will say well you know

0:23:47.840,0:23:51.360
don’t ever use the sitemap sitemap.xml

0:23:49.679,0:23:52.799
well you don’t need to worry about it

0:23:51.360,0:23:54.799
google will take care of it it’ll find

0:23:52.799,0:23:56.320
your website anyways well you’re just

0:23:54.799,0:23:59.440
wasting resources however

0:23:56.320,0:24:01.760
you must know that some robots

0:23:59.440,0:24:04.159
some search robots they ignore the

0:24:01.760,0:24:06.400
robots.txt file did you know that

0:24:04.159,0:24:07.360
yeah i found that out some search engine

robots

0:24:07.360,0:24:12.159
they don’t heed your instructions you

0:24:10.400,0:24:14.000

0:24:14.000,0:24:17.840
the robots.txt file which i include in

0:24:16.159,0:24:18.880
my blog post which is this is a simple

user agent call star disallow

0:24:22.559,0:24:25.919
and it tells you what directory to

0:24:25.200,0:24:27.679
disallow

0:24:25.919,0:24:29.200
allow it tells you what directory or

0:24:27.679,0:24:32.000
directories plural tool

0:24:29.200,0:24:32.640
to allow and then this one the site map

0:24:32.000,0:24:34.320
declaration

0:24:32.640,0:24:35.600
some fucking robots ignore that well

0:24:34.320,0:24:37.440
then what’s the point of having a

0:24:35.600,0:24:39.360
robot.txt file

0:24:37.440,0:24:41.200
i don’t know does google and bing do

0:24:39.360,0:24:43.679
they lie to you like they do a lot

0:24:41.200,0:24:44.880
and ignore your robots.txt file they may

0:24:43.679,0:24:46.799
or they may not

0:24:44.880,0:24:49.120
you may have to test that so that is

0:24:46.799,0:24:51.279
that’s another additional tip

0:24:49.120,0:24:53.039
and then but i don’t argue and i you

0:24:51.279,0:24:54.400
know it’s up to you

0:24:53.039,0:24:56.960
you could test it like i said you could

0:24:54.400,0:24:58.480
test it before on a brand new website or

0:24:56.960,0:25:00.559
or website that you already receive a

0:24:58.480,0:25:03.279
lot of traffic it’s up to you whether

0:25:00.559,0:25:06.480
you use a sitemap.xml for your

0:25:03.279,0:25:09.200
for your you know for search engines it

0:25:06.480,0:25:10.480
you know what i’m saying i’ve i’m just

0:25:09.200,0:25:12.720
old school i’ve always gotten

0:25:10.480,0:25:14.520
under the habit of having a goddamn

0:25:12.720,0:25:17.760
fucking x

0:25:14.520,0:25:18.480
sitemap.xml file and now wordpress has

0:25:17.760,0:25:23.520
it built in

0:25:18.480,0:25:23.520
anything else that i included uh

0:25:23.600,0:25:27.360
oh another before i run finally in some

0:25:26.080,0:25:30.720
well not summation but

0:25:27.360,0:25:35.840
in closing if if you’re not

0:25:30.720,0:25:35.840
familiar with maintaining a website

0:25:36.480,0:25:44.000
you know what you may want i don’t know

0:25:41.360,0:25:46.000
but if you’re interested in learning how

0:25:44.000,0:25:48.400
to maintain websites this might be

0:25:46.000,0:25:48.400
useful

0:25:48.640,0:25:53.840
if you’re confused about where the

0:25:50.200,0:25:53.840
robots.txt file is

0:25:54.880,0:26:01.760
it’s in the root folder

0:25:58.400,0:26:05.840
of your domain so government sucks.com

0:26:01.760,0:26:08.960
slash robots.txt

0:26:05.840,0:26:12.640
now that is the domain name

0:26:08.960,0:26:14.880
that’s what the the real world sees

0:26:12.640,0:26:15.919
on the server it’s not that that

0:26:14.880,0:26:18.400
location

0:26:15.919,0:26:20.159
now it can depend on the type of web

0:26:18.400,0:26:21.200
server you’re using if you’re using

0:26:20.159,0:26:23.360
nginx

0:26:21.200,0:26:24.480
if you’re using apache if you’re using

0:26:23.360,0:26:27.200
something else

0:26:24.480,0:26:29.520
it may not be the exact folder that i

0:26:27.200,0:26:31.600
but i gave you an example

0:26:29.520,0:26:32.720
you want to go to the root folder of

0:26:31.600,0:26:35.360
your website

0:26:32.720,0:26:37.200
where wordpress is installed or if you

0:26:35.360,0:26:40.000
know what i’m saying

0:26:37.200,0:26:41.520
the root folder okay you should you

0:26:40.000,0:26:43.919
should know that where that is

0:26:41.520,0:26:45.120
if you’re gonna work on if you’re gonna

0:26:43.919,0:26:46.320
set up a website if you’re gonna

0:26:45.120,0:26:48.320
maintain your own website

0:26:46.320,0:26:49.600
if you’re gonna learn how to you know

0:26:48.320,0:26:52.559
administer a website

0:26:49.600,0:26:53.919
you better know at the very least what

0:26:52.559,0:26:56.000
the root folder is

0:26:53.919,0:26:57.520
that’s where all of the files are

0:26:56.000,0:27:00.000
located for your website

0:26:57.520,0:27:01.520
it could be a generic it could be hand

0:27:00.000,0:27:04.400
coded manual coded

0:27:01.520,0:27:05.520
html it could be wordpress it could be

0:27:04.400,0:27:08.080
joomla it could be

0:27:05.520,0:27:09.760
what’s the other one drew paul i almost

0:27:08.080,0:27:10.640
switched my websites to drew paul but

0:27:09.760,0:27:13.039
that mother

0:27:10.640,0:27:16.000
drew paul holy fuck man and i don’t want

0:27:13.039,0:27:18.720
to talk about drew paul

0:27:16.000,0:27:18.720
you know what i’m saying

0:27:19.679,0:27:23.200
this is an example slash home slash user

0:27:22.720,0:27:28.880
slash

0:27:23.200,0:27:31.200
public underscore html slash robots.txt

0:27:28.880,0:27:32.640
that is an example where the robots.txt

0:27:31.200,0:27:36.399
file is located

0:27:32.640,0:27:38.960
on the server when you log in via

0:27:36.399,0:27:39.520
secure shell like ssh through a command

0:27:38.960,0:27:41.039
line

0:27:39.520,0:27:43.120
you know i’m saying that’s where it

0:27:41.039,0:27:44.000
would be located you can manually edit

0:27:43.120,0:27:47.279
it

0:27:44.000,0:27:49.440
and you can learn what veri variables to

0:27:47.279,0:27:50.399
include in your robust text file but

0:27:49.440,0:27:54.640
like i said

0:27:50.399,0:27:54.640
i know that some robots ignore it

0:27:55.120,0:28:01.760
ah don’t you just love

0:27:58.559,0:28:03.760
the internet don’t you just love

0:28:01.760,0:28:05.360
government

0:28:03.760,0:28:07.679
i would love somebody to create

0:28:05.360,0:28:10.000
government sucks.com

0:28:07.679,0:28:12.480
that would possibly be my favorite

0:28:10.000,0:28:12.480
website

0:28:14.760,0:28:17.760
adios

Delete Disqus Account

I continue with my cleanup of my Internet footprint. This time my target is the removal of my Disqus.com account. You can delete disqus account quite easily actually.

You will want to log into your Disqus.com account. Then you will be take to your “Account” section tab. Now you will want to scroll all the way to the bottom until you see a “Delete Your Disqus Account” button.

When you click on this button you will be taken to another page where you have to select a reason why you are deleting your Disqus account. You will be asked to confirm your account deletion. You have six choices to choose from.

  • I Can’t Get Disqus to Work on This Site
  • I Received Too Many Emails Notifications
  • I Spend Too Much Time Using Disqus
  • I Don’t Find Disqus Useful
  • I Can’t Change my Name
  • Other

Even though you are already logged into your Disqus account, you will be prompted to enter in your Disqus password again in order to delete disqus account. You are then warned that it may take up to 24 hours for your Disqus account to finally get deleted. You will see a blue “Delete my Account” button.

After you click on this blue delete my account button, you will be presented with a final pop up that warns you that you are about to permanently delete disqus account. You can click on “Cancel” or “OK”. When you click on ok, you are taken back to the Disqus.com homepage.

Finally, my Disqus.com account albatross has been defeated. Disqus.com stipulates that your account will become fully deleted after 30 days. Your account becomes immediately deactivated.

None of your Disqus comments will be available to the public during this 30 day grace period. None of your Disqus data is recoverable after the 30 day grace period.

thing you want to do it well if you’re
00:34
not aware Disqus is a free website that
00:39
allows you to chat on other websites so
00:43
as a blogger you could install a Disqus
00:49
plug-in and then users with a Disqus
00:53
account they can comment on your blog
00:55
posts if you’re not aware of it and in
00:58

01:00
internet websites that you can use
01:02
discus to to comment okay so you want to
01:06

01:10
obsession with CAPTCHA discus has the
01:13
Google CAPTCHA I fucking hate that
01:15
Google CAPTCHA crap I fucking despise it
01:18
I think you can skip it though but some
01:20
but more and more websites are using the
01:23
Google reCAPTCHA and that makes me close
01:29
more and more accounts alright so I’m
01:32
cleaning my internet footprint by
01:35
deleting my Disqus account so once
01:37
you’re logged in you go up to the right
01:39
I will have full abstract written
01:41
instructions in a blog post that will be
01:43
linked down in the description box below
01:46
of this YouTube video some people learn
01:48

01:54
top right click on the down arrow next
01:57
to your avatar for your Disqus account

02:03
completing and then it’ll take you to
02:06
your account so once you are in your
02:10
account then
02:12
and you want to scroll all the way down
02:14
you don’t click need to click on any
02:16
other tab for now I don’t know these
02:17
these instructions to change but for now
02:20
it takes you to your account if you’re

02:43
garbage all right and then now you have
02:45
a you know CAPTCHA and two-factor
02:48
authentication alright delete your
02:51
Disqus account this can’t be reversed so
02:54
make sure you’re sure this is what you
02:55
want and then there’s a delete button a
02:58
blue delete button and I’m gonna click
03:00
on it and let’s see what happens oh my
03:03
god I knew it now they asked for a
03:06
confirmation confirm account deletion
03:09
doing this will delete any registered
03:11
sites under this account in the comments
03:14
contained within them comments made by
03:17
this account on other sites with replies
03:20
will only be anonymized in order to
03:23
retain the context of their discussions
03:25
are you sure well yes I’m fucking damn
03:29
sure I want to get rid of this fucking
03:30
goddamn account but caveat emptor if you
03:35
want to delete your Disqus account it
03:37
gets rid of everything all the comments
03:41
are gone you won’t be able to go back
03:42
and read a more I’m assuming I don’t
03:45
know I’m assuming they disappear off the
03:46
off the internet once you do it your
03:49
account so if you comment in on a
03:51
certain website that I comment me will
03:54
no longer be available it won’t it won’t
03:56
show up ok now there’s five choices it
04:00
well six actually let us know why you’re
04:02
leaving well why do I need to tell you
04:04
fuck you why do I mean everything in the
04:08
system is about you know intelligence
04:10
gathering or you’ve got to follow orders
04:13
or well if you don’t do this I just what
04:16
the fuck here are your options I can’t
04:18
get discussed to work on my site I
04:20
received too many emails notifications
04:23
well you know
04:25
it’s not very good at grammar just
04:27
whatever number three I spend too much
04:30
time using discus number four I don’t
04:33
find discus useful number five I can’t
04:36
change my name and number six other so
04:40
let’s see which one of these
04:43
motherfuckers am I gonna choose
04:44
I don’t yeah me personally I don’t find
04:49
it useful
04:49
fuck it I’m sick now I don’t need
04:51
comment I don’t need to get into a
04:54
dichotomy
04:55
you know like or dislike on some website
04:57
yeah so I’m gonna choose a third one now
05:00
oh now you have to enter in your
05:02
password well I just logged into my
05:04
account okay I entered my password now
05:09
if I it warns you please note that it
05:13
may take up to 24 hours for your account
05:16
to be removed from the system so that’s
05:17
another caveat do not try to log in I’m
05:21
assuming that you don’t want to try to
05:23
log back into your Disqus account
05:25
because it can take up to 24 hours
05:27
I didn’t read their help file I might I
05:29
may include that in my blog post
05:32
I didn’t on this one I was just like
05:34
fuck it I’ve been wanting to get rid of
05:35
my damn Disqus account you know and I
05:38
was like you know what I’m just gonna do
05:39
a live stream and so the trolls don’t
05:41
show up and I I ignore all comments it
05:43
my last livestream I disabled the
05:47
comments and and motherfuckers were
05:49
still able to chat however I didn’t pay
05:52
attention to any of them I never read
05:53
any of them I just you know
05:55
alright so alright 24 hours I’m there’s
05:59
a blue delete my account button I just
06:02
clicked on it and now there’s a pop-up
06:04
that says okay I mean to me it’s obvious
06:07
they don’t want you to delete your
06:09
account they now there’s a pop-up that
06:12
says this will delete your account
06:14
permanently are you sure well yes what
06:18
what I just want to do just for the fuck
06:20
of it you know on a Saturday night I
06:22
have nothing else to do and so I want to
06:25
fucking you know just try to delete my
06:26
disscuss account now I’m gonna click on
06:31
okay are we there yet is it God yes it
06:36

06:38
is the only bit of information I can
06:40
show you all right let me transition and
06:43
let me make sure it’s out selected and
06:47
okay so it just took me back to the
06:50
Disqus home page as you can see on
06:52
screen that’s it that’s all it showed
06:56
now again caveat emptor all of your
07:00
comments will be gone and any other crap
07:02
you know gone poof and then number two
07:06
24-hour notice so I don’t know for a
07:10
fact I I might include it in my blog
07:12
post so you might want to click on the
07:14
link in the description box below that
07:15
will take you to my blog post written up
07:17
my website
07:18
Enoch appears calm and I will have full
07:20
instructions written and I will you know
07:22
even I may even be it well I can’t now
07:25
but it was I’m assuming that if within
07:30
the 24 hours you try to sign in again
07:32
with your distance account it may ask
07:34
you do you want to you know reenable or
07:37
I or it’ll just let you log in and so in
07:43
the delete request may not go through so
07:47
me personally I’m gonna wait I’m gonna
07:51
wait like a month because I don’t want
07:55
to ever be able to log in to this
07:57
goddamn fucking albatross Disqus dot-com
08:02
continuing to delete my internet
08:05
footprint off of all these goddamn
08:08
wretched web sites that just they chew
08:11
up all your time and they intelligence
08:13
gather and then when when you do want to
08:15
you know leave all you know well we got
08:20
a capture that you can barely read or
08:22
they got three prompts adios
08:29
you have to end this stream

Delete Chatango Account – Permanently

I finally got around to deleting another account on the Internet. I have been trying to clean up my Internet footprint recently. Chatango is a free chat service where you can chat privately to individuals for free.

Also, you can actually host your own chat room on your own website. However, this would require you to incorporate some code into a blog post or page. Anyways, my Chatango account no longer even worked any longer with Brave web browser.

I received a “This plugin is not supported” error message when logging into my Chatango account. I could not access any of my account settings. However, I was able to find out how to delete Chatango account.

You will want to log into your Chatango account. Once logged in you will want to visit this delete Chatango account link. Then you will want to click on “Delete This Account”.

You will be asked to enter in your Chatango password. Also, you are required to enter in a captcha word. The first captcha word was barely legible with a light aqua color and hard to read with a less than stellar font.

Once you enter in the correct captcha your delete Chatango account permanently dreams come true with this message.

Your account government sucks with the email becomingfree@governmentsucks.com has been deleted.

Also, you will no longer be able to log into your Chatango account. I tried logging into my Chatango account credentials after deleting my account and I was not able to sign back in and received this message.

Incorrect Login Info.

This albatross is gone forever. Now on to my next Internet albatross. One day I may finally clean up my Internet footprint.

Until then I keep finding accounts to delete and blog posts to write about it. Although, I do not have anything negative to say about Chatango, as I never really had any problems with their free chat service.

01:06
find all kinds of free open source
01:09
versions of IRC that runs on Linux and
01:11
probably wind blows and anyways click on
01:16
the link in the description box below
01:18

01:19
website and it compares calm for the
01:23

01:24
detailed instructions links you know
01:27

01:29
I logged into my chat tango account the
01:33
first time in quite a while and the
01:36
Weber it doesn’t even fucking work the
01:38
web browser says it’s it’s what is it
01:44
it says it’s an invalid it’s great I
01:48
don’t know some bullshit here I’m not I
01:50
can’t screen capture it because they’re
01:52
my there’s a piece no this plugin is not
01:56
supported maybe it needs flash I don’t
02:00
know I don’t care all right
02:02
so I will try to screen capture any
02:05
pages that I can it may not I may not be
02:09
able to because I never ever ever
02:12
release any even one piece of
02:15
information that these motherfuckers on
02:18
YouTube and the internet and all and you
02:22
know I mean you got motherfuckers that
02:24
Doc’s and you got motherfuckers on
02:27
YouTube that SWAT swatting you know I’m
02:30
saying so alright so let’s go so I will
02:35
provide a link you’re gonna want to log
02:37
into your check
02:39
tango account first it’ll make it much
02:40
easier I could not it’s not even working
02:43
so I can’t even go into my account
02:45
settings really or can i I don’t know I
02:47
didn’t care I just I found how to do it
02:50
so I was like well fuck it
02:53
so log into your chat tango account and
02:56
then click on the link that will be in
03:00
my blog post and I’ll take you to this
03:02
page where it says delete account one of
03:07
my favorite activities is cleaning up my
03:12
internet footprint Facebook Twitter
03:15
YouTube I mean get it all right Oh Gmail
03:24
Yahoo uh uh hotmail now fuck those
03:28
billion dollar fascist crooked criminal
03:31
corporations that are in bed with the
03:33
government now and you don’t and then
03:35
they’re now gonna probably they might
03:39
change section 230 of the 1996 anyways
03:45
anyways you just don’t know what’s going
03:47
to go down the pipeline in the future so
03:49
I say to me is productive to learn how
03:53
to host your own email host your own
03:56
website host your own chat tool
03:58
host drones social engineering I mean it
04:01
just goes on and on on everything that
04:03
these free providers give to you you can
04:06
easily provide for yourself on your own
04:08
all right so here I am I’m logged into
04:12
my account and then I’m gonna fucking
04:15
delete this motherfucker so let me go
04:18
back delete account all right now what’s
04:22
going on all right
04:23
I can’t screen capture this because it
04:25
shows a piece of information that
04:27
somebody else could use to circumvent
04:32
something yeah you might want to study
04:34
you know website security our study
04:37
security computer security delete this
04:40
account and then blank and shows your
04:43
username your chat tango username if you
04:46
wish to delete a different account
04:47
please log out and log into that game
04:49
yeah I’m not sure you might have to log
04:52
in like I couldn’t find it and now all
04:54
this web browser doesn’t even work with
04:56
this fucking goddamn website so it’s
04:57
likely I didn’t waste time trying with
05:00
Mozilla Firefox or you know whatever so
05:03
I’m gonna click on the yellow delete
05:06
this account and let’s see what happens
05:08
oh it asked me for my password well I’m
05:12
already logged in see this is another
05:16
everything’s paranoia now well let’s see
05:18
you you have to have two bit you have to
05:22
have two-factor authentication you have
05:24
to have biometrics you have to have a
05:26
password then you have to know your
05:28
security question then you have to know
05:30
your zip code your date of birth your
05:31
Social Security your FBI file your bla
05:35
bla bla your passport you have to upload
05:37
your driver’s license and then you can
05:40
log in to Amazon and purchase some
05:42
potato chips or whatever so that is
05:47
another reason why I am going through
05:49
and getting rid of as many accounts off
05:51
the internet as I can I’m done with all
05:53
this bullshit and I might just you know
05:56
disconnect the internet and you know go
05:58
live in the mountain somewhere and
06:00
you’ll never fucking hear from me again
06:02
which you probably would actually
06:04
approve of that cuz you’re one of my
06:07
youtube subscribers that tells me or
06:09
fucking talk shit to me
06:11
on a live stream I’m not the only
06:14
YouTube content creator that has to put
06:16
up with that bullshit so I’m entering in
06:22
my password twice and that oh it’s got
06:30
CAPTCHA but I can barely read it you got
06:35
to be kidding me man I can barely read
06:39
the CAPTCHA I wish I could show you it
06:41
is barely legible I think that’s correct
06:49
but probably not no okay it oh my I can
06:54
barely read that CAPTCHA let me see if I
06:56
can I’m not making this shit up dude let
06:59
me expand I made the web browser I
07:01
zoomed in on the web browser I think I
07:04
know what it is now it could be by
07:06
design oh yeah you don’t think that’s
07:08
out of the realm of possibility yeah
07:10
these motherfuckers they it’s like the
07:13
comcast retention Department you call
07:15
them to cancel your comm crap service
07:18
also known as Comcast Xfinity and they
07:20
lot and they argue with you and yell at
07:22
you and and call you a liar which is a
07:24
real life story that really happened to
07:26
me when I tried to cancel my comm crap
07:29
internet service years ago
07:36
okay let’s see
07:49
okay let’s see if I’ve got it right now
07:51
oh yes I got through the CAPTCHA I had
07:57
to zoom in my web browser and it was at
07:59
a hundred percent but I was like it’s
08:01
like it was like aqua the letters were
08:05
like in aqua what what why not black
08:09
font or you know a black background with
08:12
a white font so you can see the CAPTCHA
08:14
I can’t help but think that was
08:16
intentional
08:17
yeah because think about it you can’t
08:19
figure out the CAPTCHA you’ll just give
08:21
up and you’ll just leave your account
08:22
out there and or you know I don’t know
08:25
man I don’t know all right
08:27
it asked me to say a password but I
08:28
don’t know what it says chat tangle your
08:32
account blank with the email blank has
08:37
been deleted yes yes chant tango Tom an
08:43
albatross that I’ve been wanting to get
08:46
rid of is gone now what you could do is
08:53
you could double check I’m not aware
08:54
that I went to their you know Help
08:58
section and they don’t really say much
09:00
but I saw the delete button I was like
09:02
yes I was salivating ping understand and
09:07
they didn’t describe well let’s say you
09:10
got a 60-day retention and this is
09:12
what’s gonna happen and I don’t give a
09:14
fuck I’m you know I’m assuming well yeah
09:16
yeah can you even save your chats your
09:21
private yeah probably I haven’t used
09:22
this in a while yeah so just become more
09:25
of that again I can’t go over any other
09:27
tips for you except for what I’m gonna
09:29
freestyle because they didn’t really
09:31
have a page saying well blah blah so I
09:34
don’t know if they have a a grace period
09:38
we can what you could do is you could
09:41
test that out which I’m gonna do right
09:42
now none so this is the website that I
09:47
was that I just right there this is the
09:51
website I just canceled my account with
09:53
if if you’ve never heard of chat tango
09:55
calm this is it so but I’m not gonna you
09:59
know screen-capture showing you how to
10:01
log in
10:02
to my account Hawai all right so let me
10:05
test it really quick and let’s see if it
10:08
even lets me log back in
10:18
yes in big bright background font now
10:23
that’s proper that’s proper marketing I
10:25
think that’s pretty sleazy of these
10:27
motherfuckers at this website then it
10:30
went when it came down to deleting my
10:32
account that I had to reenter my
10:34
password okay fine then I had to enter
10:37
in a CAPTCHA but the capture was in like
10:39
a an aqua font and it was not bright and
10:44
it was very hard to see the font was not
10:47
like white on an aqua background the
10:50
font was literally aqua and so I had to
10:55
zoom in because I couldn’t fucking read
10:57
it incorrect login info the background
11:02
is bright red and the font on that
11:06
background is white if you’ve ever
11:07
studied marketing you want contrasting
11:11
colors and web development a fucking
11:18
light aqua on a white background where
11:22
you can in a and then a lot of those
11:25
CAPTCHA programs the fonts aren’t they
11:28
use weird janky fonts that even with
11:32
black on white or white on black are
11:34
difficult to read anyways alright so
11:38
that’s it anything further I guess what
11:42
I can I don’t want to make this video
11:44
too long is I just when it comes to your
11:48
internet footprint you want to if you
11:51
have the time study computer security
11:53
all’s it takes is one piece of
11:56
information and one of these
11:58
motherfuckers on YouTube or Facebook or
12:01
Twitter or ad nauseam ad infinitum
12:04
they will SWAT you if you’re in
12:06
information technology and you’re just
12:08
trying to help people you’re just trying
12:10
to be nice trying to help people show
12:12
them how to put a computer together or
12:14
whatever whatever your niche is and
12:16
information technology all of a sudden
12:18
the police show up multiple squad cars
12:21
with their guns out you know a blazing
12:26
you know I’m saying so there to me
12:31
there’s many different reasons why it
12:32
could be productive for you to just
12:34
clean up your internet footprint the
12:36
less accounts you have online the last
12:39
chance that somebody could circumvent
12:43
that online account and then use any
12:46
information in that account for to go
12:49
after you as far as bank information you
12:53
know fiduciary responsibilities bills
12:56
whatever is important to you you know
12:59
I’m saying and then also another reason
13:00
why is that most services on the
13:03
internet that are quote unquote free
13:04
there’s almost always a catch
13:06
well let’s see the National Security
13:08
Agency wants you to use Facebook so that
13:10
they can spy on you all the time
13:12
also known as national spy agency I mean
13:18
you can learn how to like host your own
13:21
email so you don’t have to rely on Gmail
13:24
no there’s no guarantees have you ever
13:26
read the terms of agreements for these
13:28
billion dollar fascist crooked criminal
13:30
corporations they can close that account
13:33
and on the real world computer
13:35
technician I would say at least once a
13:37
day every couple of days I see somebody
13:39
complaining of not being able to log
13:42
into an email account and but it’s more
13:47
specific they’re complaining because
13:49
they’re fucked now they can’t get into
13:50
their bank account they can’t get into
13:53
their PayPal they can’t get in or well
13:55
or with this alleged pandemic they can’t
13:58
get into a file for unemployment or they
14:00
can’t get in to receive the stimulus
14:04
check you know I’m saying and I’m not
14:06
making in this up so these email
14:10
providers are very it can be very
14:12
crooked gmail I would not I don’t give
14:14
out orders I’m just telling you as a
14:16
with experience you may not want to rely
14:19
on Gmail Microsoft restof you can get a
14:23
free hop a real a free outlook.com
14:27
account or hotmail or
14:31
or any of the other or yahoomail you
14:35
just don’t know one day you try to Lotte
14:37
you you might even have your password
14:39
saved in your web browser and it’s
14:40
worked for today and I’m not making this
14:42
one up it’s worked for five years ten
14:44
years all of a sudden you logged into
14:46
your computer or you try to log into
14:48
Yahoo and access denied wrong password
14:51
or you know account terminated or
14:54
account closed or whatever that oh yes
14:56
yes yes yes yes or another one is that
14:59
I’m giving you a lot of gold tips I
15:00
don’t know why you clear your cache or
15:05
you you get a different computer and you
15:07
forgot your password alright just goes
15:08
on and on so any as far as when you
15:10
close accounts even chat tango if it’s
15:13
important to you I’m not giving out
15:16
orders it’s a free service you can
15:17
private chat you can even have you you
15:19
can you can have chat rooms if you don’t
15:22
have chat on your computer website you
15:26
can create one with chat tango and then
15:27
but you have to copy and paste the code
15:29
but they who knows they might read those
15:32
messages you may not have any privacy
15:34
they’ll lie Tia yeah I I’m not accusing
15:36
chat tango of any of that it’s just you
15:38
don’t know a lot of these corporations
15:41
are liars anyways and then so to me try
15:46
to become reliant on your own you can
15:48
host your own email you get a domain
15:50
name government sucks comm and then the
15:54
email and then you then you learn how to
15:57
set up email server and then how to you
16:03
know create an account and then that
16:06
email is on your website government
16:08
sucks com nobody else can fuck with ya
16:11
oh yeah they’ll be assholes it’ll try to
16:13
you know circumvent your accounts but
16:15
you’ll be my point is that you will be
16:17
in control instead of the government
16:19
military dictatorship always trying to
16:21
control you well you can do this you can
16:23
do that well you should wear a mask well
16:25
you should not wear a mask well you
16:27
should wear this type of mask well you
16:29
shouldn’t wear that type get it you’re
16:31
in control of your own destiny
16:33
same thing with chat there’s all kinds
16:36
of free chat services but are they are
16:39
they spying on your private messages are
16:41
they releasing that information to a
16:43
government agent
16:44
see or what whereas there’s all kinds of
16:48
free trap chat scripts like IRC Amos so
16:53
just be aware that when you delete your
16:56
chat email account you’re gonna lose
16:58
everything and I just tested it and over
17:01
here I can screen capture this but let
17:03
me make sure it doesn’t have any any
17:05
useful information so this is what the
17:08
message I received BAM this is exactly
17:12
what I what I wanted to see my chat
17:15
tango albatross is gone I think unless
17:20
it’s hidden on some servers that I’m not
17:22
aware of like Facebook Facebook claims
17:25
that Wow
17:26
once you click the delete or once you
17:28
delete your account it’s gone forever I
17:29
don’t believe that but I don’t have
17:31
anything bad to say about chann tagging
17:33
or anyways I don’t really know for a
17:34
fact but I haven’t really you know had
17:36
any problems with him I just don’t
17:38
necessarily trust anybody anymore
17:42
incorrect login info that is when I
17:45
tried to sign back into that chat tango
17:47
account and I know because I had the
17:50
information saved so I know at least the
17:53
username or email was correct and I know
17:55
the password was correct because I
17:58
hadn’t signed in a while and I actually
18:00
had to enter it in and I got in right
18:03
before I made this video all right
18:06
you can check out my blog post that has
18:08

18:33
intentionally my next video was supposed
18:35

18:37
that’s taken apart but I was like you
18:40
know what I need to you know continue
18:42
with my internet cleanup and I I tried
18:45
to access this chat tangle and I didn’t
18:49

18:52
out and I logged in I was like you know
18:53

19:04
I don’t know I might I don’t lie

19:10
Walmart that was a total disaster I
19:13
dropped it once like on hardwood floor
19:15

19:21
one of the little pieces of plastic for
19:23
I think the for one of the buttons just
19:27
broke off and I only dropped it once I’m
19:30
like okay I don’t know if I had a
19:32
warranty I only spent like eight or nine
19:34
dollars I’m not really too worried but I
19:36
I will make a video eventually in the
19:38
future then I have another video about a
19:40
wireless mouse that I bought from
19:42
Walmart there was only $9 it’s it’s the
19:45
same brand as this it’s O&N which is a
19:47
Chinese brand I’m not that doesn’t
19:50
bother me and this mouse is just great
19:52

19:55
great so it’s not always that you pay
19:58
what you get for it sometimes it is with
20:01
that other Mouse adios

Google Analytics Change Domain – Instructions

I received another computer request. This one did NOT deal with troubleshooting. Here is the original initial request:

“I set up Google Analytics on my web site a couple of weeks ago. I decided to change the domain name last week and I don’t know how to switch over the Google Analytics account to my new domain name. I just changed the domain name last week.

I have tried looking up how to assign a new domain name to my google analytics account since making the change. Could not find it.”

Here is my initial original response:

You can change the domain name of your web property in Google Analytics. Log in to Google Analytics. Click on “Admin”.

Browse to the web property that you want to edit. In the “Property” column click on “Default URL”. Type in your new domain URL.

Finally, click on “Save”. This should change your domain in Google Analytics. This individual was able to successfully change their Google Analytics domain with these instructions.

Google Analytics is a free tool that allows you to track your website visitors. I have NOT used this tool in almost a decade. I am NOT a big fan of Google Corporation and attempt to reduce my reliance on them.

However, at times it can by quite difficult to avoid their services. In order to use Google Analytics, you must create a Google account. Then you must login and obtain some code that you will inject into any web page and or website that you have control over.

There are some free plugins available for content management systems like WordPress. These plugins will inject this Google Analytics code into every WordPress post and page for you. Google Analytics can slow down your website.

Besides what other data does Google actually track from your website that they do NOT tell you about? If you are a beginner hosting websites you may want to use Google Analytics so that you learn how to properly track website visitors. I will say this about Google Analytics, for a free tool, you receive quite a bit of data regarding your web traffic.

Currently, I do NOT obsess over reviewing my web traffic reports. However, reviewing web traffic reports, like Google Analytics can help you with your search engine optimization campaigns. You can find out this type of information about your web visitors:

* visitors per day
* unique visitors per day
* repeat visitors
* visitor time on your website
* keyword searches
* organic traffic
* referral traffic
* referring website
* visitor activity
* bounce percentage
* pages per session
* average session time
* type of device used

The list goes on and on and on. You may find some of this data valuable. I am more concerned with creating content and attracting visitors then obviously worrying about my website statistics.

However, with a free tool like Google Analytics you can learn how to track your website visitors. There may be some data that helps you attract more traffic. You might be able to find out what is working on your website and vice versa.

This could be useful to find out what is NOT working on your website. Once you have mastered Google Analytics, perhaps you may want to use a tool that will help you convert those website visitors.

Open Web Analytics – How to Install OWA WordPress Plugin

Open Web Analytics is free and open source website visitor tracking software. This tool requires that you copy and pasted either JavaScript or PHP code into your websites index.html or index.php file. For example if you are using WordPress content management system then you would need to add this code to your index.php file.

One problem with this scenario is that you are editing a WordPress core file which will get over written each time you upgrade WordPress. Also, you may not want to get into the habit of editing WordPress core files. I searched for a n Open Web Analytics plugin that would inject code into each WordPress post or page so that I could track website visitors.

I found such a plugin called Open Web Analytics Plugin by Christian Schmidt. However, this plugin was developed nearly 7 years ago. This plugin may or may NOT work with newer WordPress versions.

Looks as if this plugin was abandoned years ago. Proceed with caution and AnetComputers.com is not responsible for problems with your website. I will now give you instructions on how to install and configure this plugin.

Login to your WordPress dashboard. Click on “Plugins”. Now click on “Add New”.

Type in “owa” without quotes into a search box. Look for “Open Web Analytics Plugin” by Christian Schmidt. Click on “Install Now”.

Click on OK at the “Are you sure you want to install this plugin now” warning pop up. The plugin should download and install. Click on “Activate” to make this plugin live.

Under “Settings” there will be an option titled apropos “Open Web Analytics”. Choose that option and you will taken to this plugins settings. This is where you configure this plugin to grab data from open web analytics that you already installed.

You have to enter your open web analytics site ID into the first field. You must login with your admin account into the open web analytics tracking system. Click on “Edit Profile” for the website that you want to integrate with WordPress.

You will see your “Site ID” under “Site Profile”. This is a lengthy alphanumerical string. Copy and paste this site ID into the first configuration field in the WordPress plugin configuration. You can have this plugin track “Downloads”.

You can add in the host name of the server where you installed open web analytics. This is entirely optional. For example I would enter in www.anetcomputers.com.

The “Base URL of installation” should already be filled in with /owa/. For example if you installed open web analytics into the owa directory under your web root, then you should see /owa/. However, if you changed the installation folder on your web server from /owa/ to say /stats/ then you want to change /owa/ to /stats/ in this field. You can optionally track the admin user with this tool.

Place a check next to “Track the admin user too”. Now click on “Update Settings”. Now you get to test if this plugin is working. Browse to your website so that this open web analytics detects a visitor.

In the open web analytics administrator back end you should see:

0 Visits 0 Page Views 0.00 % Bounce Rate

Now that you just visited your website, you should see some statistics for your website. Click on “Tracked Sites” from the main administrator dashboard. AnetComputers.com should show at least this:

1 Visits 1 Page Views 100.00 % Bounce Rate

If you were to click on an addition page you should see this:

1 Visits 2 Page Views 0.00 % Bounce Rate

This plugin injects tracking code into each WordPress post and page. You should begin to see more website statistics now that you have properly configured this plugin. This saves you the time from having to manually copy JavaScript or PHP code into your website index.html or index.php file.

Open Web Analytics – How to Install Free OWA Software in 10 Minutes

Open Web Analytics is free and open source software that helps you track your website visitors. This software is similar to Google Analytics. Once upon a time there was some other free open source software called Trace Watch.

However, that software is no longer supported. I then turned towards Open Web Analytics, when I had either my own virtual private server or physical web server. Then I eventually went back to using shared web hosting from Namecheap.

I turned to using the Awstats that was already installed. Now, I just earlier this year purchased virtual private server space. I am going to show you how to install Open Web Analytics.

This should take you around 10 minutes if you are familiar with the concept of installing software on your own virtual private or dedicated server. I would say in my opinion most shared hosting providers will not give you root access therefore you most likely will not be able to install this website analytics software on shared hosting. You will need to download a tarball.

The most recent version is 1.6.2. You will need to decompress this tarball. It will create a “owa” folder with all the installation files.

Now you want to upload this folder to your web server. You will most likely use file transfer protocol to upload this folder. You can upload it to your website root folder.

For example /home/user/public_html/. Also, you can create a folder off of your website root and upload the folder contents there.

/home/user/analytics/owa

Once you have successfully uploaded the owa folder to your web server, you will be creating a MySQL database. You will need to access your MySQL server via command line or with phpMyAdmin. Click on “Databases” in phpMyAdmin.

The rest of these instructions will assume you are using phpMyAdmin. In the “Create a database” field enter in the name of your owa database. For example owadb.

You can either choose a “Collation” type from a drop down menu or just leave that setting alone. Now click on “Create” button. You have just created the database that Open Web Analytics will be using.

This database has no tables. Now you need to click on “Privileges”. You will need to browse back to Home in phpMyAdmin and then click on “Privileges”.

Place a check box next to at least one already created and configured user. You are giving this MySQL username access privileges to this newly created database. Look for “Add privileges on the following database”.

Choose your newly created owadb database from this drop down list. Click on “Check All” next to “Database specific privileges”. Now you remove the check next to “GRANT” and click on “Go”.

Now you browse to the install path in your web browser. For example since I uploaded owa to the website root folder I will need to browse to this path:

http://anetcomputers.com/owa/install.php

You should see an Open Web Analytics Installer screen. Now click on “Let’s Get Started…” to begin this installation. You should see a “Configuration Settings” screen.

You should not need to change your “URL of OWA”. Type in localhost in “Database Host” field. Type in the name of your database in this example owadb into the “Database Name” field.

Type into the “Database User” field the MySQL user earlier that you gave privileges to. For example user. You will need to enter in the password associated with “user” into the “Database Password” field. Click on the “Continue” button.

Under “Site Domain” field enter the domain of the website you are going to track visitors for. This example would be anetcomputers.com. Now enter in your email address in case you forget your password for Open Web Analytics.

You are actually creating your admin login for this tool. Enter in a password for the email address you just typed in earlier. Remember this email address and password will allow you to administrate this website tracking software.

You should see a final “Success…Installation is Complete” page. You have just installed Open Web Analytics onto your web server. You should see the login and password information on this page.

For example:

admin
admin123

Click on “Login and generate a site tracker”. This will take you to the Open Web Analytics login page. Login with your admin username and password just created.

Now you will be presented with tracking code. This is just computer code that you will copy and paste into your website. There is both JavaScript and PHP code available.

You want to ssh into your website. Also, you will want to either login with the root account or sudo to root. You will now be pasting this code into either the index.html or index.php file on your web server.

This depends on whether or not you are using a content management system like WordPress. You can use a text editor like vi. Make sure to write the file changes by typing :wq!

Now you can test your website tracking. Test a web page on your website by browsing to a page. For example you would browse to anetcomputers.com.

This also tests to make certain this software does not conflict with your website. If you receive a blank page then obviously there is a problem. Click on “Tracked Sites”.

You should see your website in this list. If you properly added the tracking code, then you should already see some statistics. To view more detailed information, you want to click on “View Reports”.

You can change how Open Web Analytics tracks visitors by clicking on “Main Configuration”. User Management allows you to add additional users that will have access to this tool. Tracking additional websites is also available with this software.

You would just follow the steps above to add an additional website. Click on “Add New”. I do NOT know if there is a limit to how many websites you can track visitors with this tool.

This is my preferred website analytics tool. Once upon a time, I used Google Analytics. That tracking system would slow down my website(s) and who knows what Google does with all that data.

Easy Hosting Control Panel – Just How Easy is ISPConfig 3 to Use?

I decided to no longer use a virtual private server and instead build my own web server. I obtained a Comcast Xfinity business class broadband service. As long as you have a business class service, then you can physically host your own websites.

Comcast will most likely block your hyper text transfer protocol traffic with one of their residential Internet services. Anyways, one predicament of maintaining your own web server, is what operating system and or web serving software to use. I tried for days if NOT weeks to install a web server manually.

This is often times called a Linux Apache Mysql PHP server. What I could not over come was some of the configuration files for hosting multiple websites. I finally gave up and started researching free open source multi website control panels.

I finally found my solution for an easy hosting control panel, called ISPConfig. I had used cPanel for years. However, cPanel requires a monthly subscription.

ISPConfig is one of the first free open source hosting control panels I tried. The installation can have quite a bit of a learning curve. Depending on what Linux distribution you install, you might end up using the ISPConfig installation script.

This installation script requires that you answer some web hosting technical questions. You will need to know and understand how a website actually works on the server end. Once you are able to successfully install ISPConfig 3, then this web hosting control panel could be classified as easy.

ISPConfig is just as easy to use as cPanel. However, there is a lack of documentation as the developers require that you purchase the user manual. I was able to find most if not all of my questions answered on their public forums.

I was able to configure and maintain two wordpress websites for four years. I was able to configure email as well. ISPConfig has a web based administrator interface.

Most if not all tasks that you can complete in cPanel can completed in ISPConfig. You can access the live online demo for free. You can even demo the administrator interface.

With anything that is new, their will become a learning curve. However, once you familiarize yourself with the web based interface, you will be up in running in no time. I actually because of a lack of money, had to abandon my business class internet and thus my own physical web server.

I am paying very little for a virtual private server currently. I tried installing ISPConfig with a quick installer. However, it failed and I decided to install Centos web panel.

However, I am considering installing ISPConfig 3 again. I was in a bit of a rush to move three websites from a yearly shared hosting plan. I would just need to provision my virtual private server again and restore all three websites.

ISPConfig 3 has four major sections where you maintain your website(s).

* sites
* email
* domain name system
* virtual server

Also, you can actually use ISPConfig 3 to resell web space. You just create separate clients. I was pleasantly surprised with the ease and speed of maintaining a web server.

Most major tools are at your finger tips so that you can maintain multiple websites. Installing WordPress is straight forward. Initially, I had installed ISPConfig 3 on a minimal version of Ubuntu server.

However, when I recently tried installing it, I was using a minimal server version of Centos. This could be the problem. Creating email inboxes was simple.

Also, you can create catch all inboxes with ISPConfig 3. Adding an Internet protocol address is simple as well. Many tasks like adding domains and sub domains only require a couple of mouse clicks.

I was able to maintain multiple websites with ISPConfig quite quickly just like I had before with cPanel. ISPConfig 3 supports the following Linux distributions:

* debian
* ubuntu
* centos
* fedora
* open suse

There is a separate billing module that you can purchase if you want to become a web hosting seller.

Alternative Web Browsers – Falkon Official 3.0.1 Release

I finally found two alternative web browsers to Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microst Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, Opera, and the list goes on. I have been using Qupzilla 2.2.6 for months now as my main web browser of choice. However, the developer has decided to no longer support Qupzilla.

This same developer created a new web browser called Falkon which is actually based upon Qupzilla. The official version of Falkon has finally been released. Falkon 3.0.1 is now available for download.

This web browser is free and open source software. You can install it on both Linux and Microsoft windows based operating systems. There was a pre-release version of Falkon 3.0.0 available since February.

Normally, I do NOT fuck with alpha and beta software. However, since this was considered a pre-release I tested this web browser out. The graphical user interface is almost exactly like Qupzilla.

However, when I tested it there were a few areas that became problematic. Falkon has been my backup web browser to Qupzilla for the past three months. Now that this alternative web browsers official release is here, I may make Falkon my main web browser of choice.

Falkon 3.0.1 official release is the first ever bug fix version. This version was released on May eight two thousand eighteen. Falkon is NOT yet available for Macintosh operating system.

Amazingly, the developer is working on a Macintosh version. You can install Falkon as a stand alone application or use it as a portable application. Fourteen bugs were fixed in this first ever official Falcon web browser 3.0.1.

* profile migration for QupZilla
* wrong form data
* wrong back and forward buttons
* loading uniform resource locator 20%
* download text files
* download manager not closing restored tabs
* location bar site icon
* QtWebEngine 5.11 problems
* speed dial blank
* html full screen
* speed dial settings
* crashed sessions
* bookmarks toolbar height
* collapsed parent
* opening new window

Falkon is an official KDE project. This project supports the three major operating systems. Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh, and Linux. Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows 8, and Microsoft Windows 10 operating systems are supported.

Mainstream Linux distributions are supported. Since the first official release of alternative web browsers Falkon web is NOT yet available for Macintosh operating system, then I do NOT know what versions of Macintosh operating system are supported. There are both x86 32 bit and x64 64 bit web browser version available.

For now I am pleased with both Falkon and Qupzilla. I will most likely make Falkon my main web browser of choice and keep Qupzilla around as a backup. Finally, some decent web browsers around that do NOT fucking drive me up a wall like the mainstream web browsers do.

Although I admit that this my dogmatic subjective perspective vantage point.

Microsoft System Security Alert – Pop up a Real Threat or Not?

I received a request from a third party web site where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. Here is their request:

“I just had something very strange that happened when I was on Google white pages. It was a large red screen that also was speaking saying it was Microsoft windows and it was an alert stating my information on my computer had been compromised and to call the # on the screen”

This individual was using a laptop with Windows 10 operating system installed. Let me cut to the chase. These types of alerts are scams.

I would never call any number advertised. These false positives actually can install adware, malware, spyware, and or a virus onto your computer. Here was my response:

This is most likely a scam. There are quite a few scammers trying to get money from people. However, you may have been infected with malware, spyware, etc.

You could perform a system restore back to before you received this message. Also, you could perform a full virus scan. You could scan for malware and spyware with my preferred anti spyware program.

This is a free download. Finally, make sure that your firewall is turned on. You can get infected with spyware just by browsing the Internet.

This individual requested that I remotely connect to their computer and perform some system scans. First, I noticed that there were two anti-virus running. You NEVER need more than one anti-virus software installed on your computer.

As a matter of fact two or more anti-virus software can actually slow down your computer to a crawl. These programs will conflict with each other. I removed Viper security, with the permission of this client.

They now only had Mcafee Internet security installed. I made sure any updates were downloaded and installed for Mcafee. Also, I ran a quick virus scan.

My preferred malware/spyware removal found two pieces of software that I removed. Also, it found over 700 tracking cookies. Mcafee did NOT find any viruses.

I verified that indeed the Mcafee firewall was turned on. Also, whenever I remotely connect to a client computer, I generally use my preferred PC optimization tool. Also, to save time, I run many scans at the same time.

This PC optimization tool found around 1500 registry items. Often times, whenever I run this tool, I notice an immediate difference in the over all responsiveness of a Microsoft Windows operating system. Also, I went into task manager and looked to see if there was high central processing unit, random access memory, and or hard drive utilization.

Another thing I check for is making certain there are no problems with hardware devices. A quick gaze at Device Manager did NOT reveal any problems. Finally, I normally check Microsoft Windows 10 updates.

These are nothing short of a disaster, but I check them anyways to see if any of them are failing. Believe it or not, adware, malware, spyware, and virus can cause problems with device drivers and even Microsoft Windows updates. I did try performing a system file check, but it was taking too long to run.

Overall, I think this computer may have been affected with just two adware/malware/spyware programs. Many of these Microsoft system security alert messages are just phony pop up messages seducing you into calling the telephone number advertised. Then the perpetrator will ask for your credit card information.

Worse of all is that they will request access to your computer and then intentionally infect your computer. I never take these messages seriously. I would never waste time calling any phone number advertised.

However, as a computer technician, I will run a spyware scan, just to make certain. In closing, you could install an advertisement or pop up blocker on your web browser. This individual was using Google Chrome web browser when they received this alert.

I was going to install an advertisement blocker for them, but to my chagrin Ad Block Plus was already installed. Nothing to me is perfect in the technology sector. I am NOT surprised that one of these fake alerts was able to bypass an ad blocker.
