How do you export guides from Illustrator to Photoshop.

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

 So, you set up an amazing image in Adobe illustrator and carefully and exactly laid out some guides... Perhaps your plan was to create slices from those guides, until you found that the “create slices from guides” option in Adobe Illustrator sucks balls. Or maybe you are making a web graphic and want to set up slices in Photoshop because you want exact pixel control where the image will be sliced.

Regardless the reason, you simply want to copy the guides from illustrator and paste them into Photoshop, or export/import them, whatever, you want to move Adobe illustrator guides to Adobe Photoshop.

It turns out not all the Module styles for the Image Show GK4 are responsive. What does this mean? It means that unless your settings are correct, the images shown in the Gavick Pro Image Show (GK4) will not scale with the rest of the website. Add a comment

New alternative to dropbox might just be my new favourite cloud file service.

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

I was looking for alternative to dropbox simply to have another option that I could install along with dropbox to share different files. Yes I know about Box, Google drive, One Drive (formerly Sky Drive) and the myriad of other alternatives, but none of them tickled my fancy. Then I discovered “Copy”.

[SOLVED] Why don't category name changes in #Prestashop 1.6 appear/update on the frontpage menu?

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

Problem: Category name base been changed but the front end menu name doesn’t reflect the changes in #Prestashop 1.6
 
Read more: [SOLVED] Why don't category name changes in #Prestashop 1.6 appear/update on the frontpage menu?
 
In Prestashop 1.6  the Menu is dynamically linked to the category name. Change the category name and the menu will change accordingly. But what if it doesn’t? What happens if you change the category name in Prestashop 1.6 and the menu still shows the old name even if you clear the cache?
Well. I have a solution which will likely fix most problems when the category name has been changed but the menu stays the same: Add a comment

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

This is a quick overview of Toxic backlinks:Read more: What is a Toxic Backlink, how does it affect my Google rank and what should I do about it?

In general, a Toxic back link is any link that intends to manipulate the PageRank, or the search engine results.

It can be a link to your site or an outgoing link from your site, it will be considered a toxic if Google decides it wasn’t natural and is seen as an artificial attempt to boost rankings. Toxic links are also called “unnatural links” and can be considered a violation of the Google Guidelines.

Here is the solution for the error you may get upgrading a Joomla installation to 3.x form any other Joomla 3.x version. I can't say if it will fix your problem in every case, but it worked for me when the "Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object in /PATH-TO-YOUR-SITE/plugins/system/remember/remember.php on line 94" appeared as I was upgrading Joomla.
