So I’ve been dealing with Facebook’s like button error for a while. FB offers an easy way of putting a Like button in your WordPress theme by using a configurator which will give you codes once you input some needed info. I got it from here https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/ and I thought I just messed up some codes because when I click the button, it gives me this error:
“Sorry, this post contains a suspicious URL: Unknown error”.
Upon doing some checks I got it all sorted out. Ugh.
By default ec2 gives a public DNS something like ec2-x-x-x-x.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com and Facebook treats it as a suspicious URL.Well, of course it does look suspicious. Look how long the URL is.
I tried other “valid” URLs and they worked.
So I have a website here: http://katpadi.ph/
It’s just a simple personal web presence I created when I resigned from my previous job –something that kept me busy and sane at that time. Now that I know how to use WordPress for this kinds of shit, I want to migrate to it. I just don’t have time.
I also want to buy a new R-Pi because I lost mine 😦 I want to make some automated shit that I read here: http://ryanfx.blogspot.com/2013/06/raspberry-pi-powered-android-controlled.html
I have a lot of ideas on my mind.
I just don’t actually START doing it.
I JUST NEED MOTIVATION, promise.
So I came across a post that basically tells me that it’s perfectly normal to experiment for fun. She wrote some steps as to how it will help a developer RELAX. =P
- Pick a technology or language and work within the confines of that language
- Don’t set an end goal
- You are done when you are done (if it stops being fun, stop.)
- Forget tests, forget best practice, just make something
- Have fun
I will try to do this R-Pi thing that I found:
Apart from my initial plan which is to build a meth lab (Breakin Bad basically gave me this idea), this is what I am aiming to do for the next couple of months during my free time.
