For some reason this still eludes me when I need it. So I decided to save this information on my own site.
Go to cPanel, File Manager and choose “Web Root (public_html/www)”. There create a new file (or edit the existing one) called .htaccess and add the following line:
To switch to PHP 7.0
1 AddHandler application/x-httpd-php70 .php .php5 .php4 .php3
To switch to PHP 5.6
1 AddHandler application/x-httpd-php56 .php .php5 .php4 .php3
To switch to PHP 5.5
1 AddHandler application/x-httpd-php55 .php .php5 .php4 .php3
To switch to PHP 5.4
1 AddHandler application/x-httpd-php54 .php .php5 .php4 .php3
To switch to PHP 5.3
1 AddHandler application/x-httpd-php53 .php .php5 .php4 .php3
It’s been years since I’ve spent much time or energy on my own websites. Sigh. As a Professional Web Developer, you spend most of your time updating and maintaining other people’s websites, not your own.
Today I decided it was time. Four and half hours later, a new look, template and updated everything.
Years ago I purchased the “Thesis” them from DIYThemes. It hadn’t been updated or upgraded in years and I decided to finally take the time to do it. I like easy, and this template makes managing my own site easy.
It’s always good to keep your sites up-to-date and to remove any Plug-ins that you’re not using. If you haven’t looked at DIYThemes for your next WordPress site, check it out.
This looks like a great resource to figure out how to create my own wp site.
“Creating a WordPress theme from scratch is not hard. I’ll hold your hand through it. Tutorials on this topic have been written before and the WordPress website also has guides for you to follow. But are those tutorials and guides really helpful to you when you don’t understand the lingo? Even I got lost while reading the WordPress guides. ”
fernando_graphicos » Fernando_Graphicos WordPress Themes: I have ported all of my themes from 1.2 up to 1.5 (finally) and they are all here for download in both WP1.2 and WP1.5 formats.
FYI: All my theme and template design will be in WordPress 2.0.x format from today forward. These are the last of the old way of thinking, and using Kubrick as the base template for my work. My forthcoming themes are written from the ground up by me.
Also, searching my own archives, here, can be a very useful tool for adding things like menus, plugins, and other features of WP. I tend to write everything up as I come to understand it, or even get frustrated and need help. You may benefit from viewing my process to one degree or another.
You can preview them all by using the theme switcher on the main page of this site.
