Часть 10. 21 – 25 августа 1942   21 августа 1942                           14.30                              Дер. К. Здравствуй, моя дорогая, вечно любимая женушка Тусенька! Всю свою любовь к тебе я передаю через этот красный карандаш, которым пишу. Пусть моя любовь будет еще ярче, еще красней, чем это письмо, чем эти мои строчки. Сейчас выбрал минуточку свободного времени и пишу тебе. Вчера получил от тебя 2 письма от 12 и 15 августа. Спасибо тебе за память и это стихотворение, которое ты мне послала. Теперь я смогу выступить на своей полковой самодеятельности не только с песнями о Волге, Родине, но и со стихотворением. Кроме того, я выступал 2 раза со стихотворением «Жди меня». Теперь мой репертуар…

New User Registration in WordPress 3.X

WordPress-User-Registration

There is a certain magic in many well-constructed marvels.  This definitely applies to a WordPress.  Just recently I needed to fix something inside user registration procedure, and with very limited PHP knowledge, I was able to figure out, what was going on and fix the problem. On the way there, I couldn’t help but admire, how well everything is documented and linked-in to minimize code duplication.  There is an obvious truth in saying that “the best things in life are free”. When user clicks on a link to register, a wp_login.php page opens up.  This page is a conglomerate of  3 different page-forms: — login, — register and — recover a password. Proper…

To Be Alive

2004-07-09

To be alive one needs to think.  It is your first move.  You are what you think. Before words and before actions comes the thought – the thought of “Self”. The thought is everything.  It is an emotion, it is a vision, and it is everything around you.  Try to eliminate the thought, and everything around you turns into objects just like you.  Without thought you become vulnerable and needy.  Desires are consuming you, and what is there to guide your next move? Instincts? A first free minute after all instincts are satisfied and all calls of duty are answered gives a luxury (or misery) of Self.  Kids are fed and…

Hofburg Dome

Friday, August 15 – Wien Next day, on Friday, August 15, we woke up in a perfect spirit.  We slept for the first time on a new European schedule.  Breakfast is included, so we ate cheeses and ham and boiled eggs, lots of coffee and tea, and diluted orange juice. We checked out and moved all our stuff to Mozart Pension.  Here we used famous staircase Fillgraderstiege (build in1905-07).  Two streets (all streets in Vienna called Gasse) meet each other at different levels, and stairs are needed to connect them. It is interesting architecturally, but also it host a tiny little bar that opens at night and is extremely cozy. Center…

If your theme has a header image, this article is for you.   It turns out, it is relatively easy to display different site header images for different post categories. To do that, you need to add an IF statement to header.php file.  This IF statement will control, what header image is loaded depending on (in this example) current category. First, upload a new header image using new article and add new media functionality. Note the path, where your new header image landed in the Upload directory structure. Here is how header image code looked before the change in header.php:   <?php if(pbt_theme_option('logo_header')) { ?> <a href="<?php echo home_url(); ?>/" class="headerimage"> <img src="<?php…
