SpiderZMeN Firefox Add-ons

A lot of you must be wondering what tools or add-ons should be used to optimize the use of Mozilla Firefox. Here is a list of my add-ons that I think you should try. Some of it are quite useful for all the programmers and web developers out there(not forgotting hackers also). =)

According to alphabetical order:

1. Add N Edit Cookies
- Add cookies, edits cookies values and expiration dates, toolbar button. Useful during hacking. Google it if searching for tutorial.

2. Cooliris
- This is just a plug-in that can make a "3D Wall" for your image browsing. I've used it for Google, Friendster, Myspace, Facebook, Picasa, Flikr and much more. Anything that is related with images hosting, albums and etc.

3. DownThemAll!
- Yeahh! I've used DownThemAll since 2007 and I don't have any ranting about it. DownThemAll (or just dTa) is a powerful yet easy-to-use Mozilla Firefox extension that adds new advanced download capabilities to your browser. DownThemAll lets you download all the links or images contained in a webpage and much more: you can refine your downloads by fully customizable criteria to get only what you really want. DownThemAll is all you can desire from a download manager: it features an advanced accelerator that increases speed up to 400%, it allows you to pause and resume downloads at any time and, last but not least, it's fully integrated into your favorite browser!

4. FEBE(Firefox Environment Backup Extension)
- This is better than any backup add-ons I've tried. It can backup every single thing in your Mozilla Firefox, in case of formatting or windows error. It can backup your extensions(add-ons),themes,bookmarks,preferences,cookies,usernames and passwords,search plugins,browser history,form fill history,permissions...and also your very own user-defined backups. It is also great because it has the ability to host your backup files in your Box.net hosting account. If you don't have any Box.net account, you can register it for free HERE.

5. Feed Sidebar
- It helps you display new items in your Live Bookmark(feeds). It's has a refresher that let you define whether you want it to check for new feeds every 30 minutes or more.

6. Firebug
- This is a powerful plugin which let you edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript. I really really like it because it can be used in web development and it has no boundaries. What's really good about it is we can edit any webpage LIVE!! LOL

7. Fire Uploader
- It is a universal uploader. Currently you can use it to upload bulk files to Box.net, Flickr, Picasa, Youtube, Facebook, Webshots, Omnidrive, Smugmug, SME Storage, Google Docs, Snaphappi, Adbobe, Slideshare.

8. FoxyProxy
- Honestly, at first, I didn't know what the heck is this plugin about because it is quite complicated. But eventually as I learn more, it is used as a proxy management for your use during surfing the net. FoxyProxy automates the manual process of editing Firefox's Connection Settings dialog. You can define which proxy to use (or none!) for arbitrary URLs using wildcards, regular expressions, whitelists, blacklists, and other conveniences. It's just GREAT! haha

9. Greasemonkey
- Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension that allows you to customize the way webpages look and function. Hundreds of scripts are already available for free. And if you're the tinkerer sort, you can also write your own. And believe me, every webpage is customizable for your own taste. =D

10. ShowIP
- It shows the IP Address of the current page in your status bar and allows queries to different databases about it when you right click on it. You can also get information about the hostname of the current page. Yeahh!!

11. User Agent Switcher
- You can switch the user agent of the browser. Example: change to IE7, Netscape 4.8, Opera 9.25. Also useful for hacking website.


That's all. This is just a recommendation. Try Google them and look for yourselves. Bye!

Adding background image to your Blog

This tutorial shows you how to put a background picture to your blog.

It is basically adjusting your template HTML.

Firstly!!! BACKUP YOUR TEMPLATE.

Then, we can proceed with the tutorial.

1. Login to your Blogger dashboard.

2. Select your blog. Then, Layout > Edit HTML.

3. In the Edit Template box, press Ctrl-F to find body { or something like that. Please refer to the picture.



4. As you can see, the settings that I've used for the blog is:

background-image: url(http://www.geocities.com/bekmenjahat/back.jpg);
background-position: bottom right;
background-attachment: fixed;
background-repeat: no-repeat;


5. Let me explain it in detail:

- background-image: url(URL) property

URL in red is where you put the URL of the background image. How to find it? By simply searching through Google Images or by uploading your favorite picture in Image Hosting website such as Photobucket, Imageshack, Flickr, Picasa and lots more.

- background-position property

This is the part where can configure your background image to appear at the specified location. In this example, the background image will show the background in the bottom right corner of the website.

Here is other option for background position:
top left
top center
top right
center left
center center
center right
bottom left
bottom center
bottom right

- background-attachment property

The background-attachment property defines whether the background image will be fixed or scrolled.

scroll - Default. The background image moves when the rest of the page scrolls
fixed - The background image does not move when the rest of the page scrolls

- background-repeat property

repeat - Default. The background image will be repeated vertically and horizontally
repeat-x - The background image will be repeated horizontally
repeat-y - The background image will be repeated vertically
no-repeat - The background-image will not be repeated

6. After finishing your configuring, preview your template first. If there is no error, then click the Save Template button.

7. Your changes have been saved. You can view your blog with a nicer background image of your own. That's all. The End. =)

How to Backup Your Blogger Widgets

Most of the time, when we you wanted to change your template, you risk losing all of your widgets and page element. The method we'll be using is through another "test blog" which will make the widget copying easier.

First create your test blog and upload your new template first. Then....

Here is the method to transfer all of your widget to your test blog:

1. Log in to your Blogger Dashboard.

2. We'll be using a double tab in this method. I suggest you use Mozilla Firefox or IE7 which you can use tab by keying Ctrl+T. Open your dashboard in another tab by right-clicking on the link and choose "Open in New Tab" @ "Open Link in New Tab"

3. In the first tab:
Select your test blog. Layout > Edit HTML. Click on the "Upload New Template" link near the top of the page and upload the new XML template you wish to adapt for your main blog. Make sure that the "Expand Widget Templates" is unchecked.

4. In the second tab:
Select existing blog. Layout > Edit HTML. Do NOT check "Expand Widget Templates" box. Locate your widget content identifier which will look something like in this picture:

Copy all of the code in the black box and paste into Notepad.

5. Once you have copied the widget identifiers from your old template, go back to the browser window in which you can edit your new template. Please take note that if you are using a 3 column template in your old blog, you must copy the widget code for both of the sidebar.

6. Find this section in your blog template:
<div id="sidebar-wrapper">
<b:section class="sidebar" id="sidebar" preferred="yes">
There may or may not be content here... </b:section>
</div>


IF there are any widgets in the section, DELETE it (can contribute to duplicated widget). Then in their place, paste the widget codes from your old template:

<div id="sidebar-wrapper">
<b:section class="sidebar" id="sidebar" preferred="yes">
Paste the widget identifiers here </b:section>
</div>


If there are no widgets in the sidebar of your new template. This will show:

<div id="sidebar-wrapper">
<b:section class="sidebar" id="sidebar" preferred="yes"/>
</div>


In this case, you should delete the trailing slash from the end of the line. Make a line break then paste your widget content as before. Then finally create another line break and add the following line:

</b:section>


The result should look something like this:



7. PLEASE TAKE NOTE! Do NOT preview your template during this process. Risk of duplicating your widget is high.

8. Save the test blog template. Notice that no widget content is showing, only the widget titles are showing. The widget content is stored in the settings for your original blog.

9. We have copied the widgets, we can download the XML template from the test blog and transfer it to the original blog. Template > Edit HTML. Select "Download full template". Save the template to your computer with a name you can easily identify.

10. Go back to the other tab where you will still be at the Edit Template HTML page for your original blog. Look for the "upload template" section and browse for the XML template from the test blog that you had just saved and upload it. You should NOT have this kind of notification:



If you do see such error messages, take note of the widgets the template wants to delete, then choose to cancel the process. You should then copy the appropriate widgets from the old template into the new template in your test blog (as before), save the template and attempt to upload it again.

11. If you receive no error messages, your template will be saved, and you can now view your new blog template with all your old widgets still in place. You can then move the widgets around however you wish in the Layouts section of your dashboard.

That is all. The End.
