Tagging is a feature built into most blogging platforms. Typically tags differ from categories in that there are many more of them on your site and a larger number of them are applied to a specific post. Here’s how WordPress describes the difference…
Tags are similar to categories, but they are generally used to describe your post in more detail.
Regardless of the exact meaning, understanding which tags on your site are most popular can help you make decisions about what type of content to publish. This post outlines a strategy for identifying your most popular tags in Google Analytics
magento-malware-scanner is an extremely valuable tool to help keep your Magento installation secure. Scanning a codebase for malware is dead simple…
wget git.io/mwscan.txt grep -Erlf mwscan.txt /path/to/magento
However, it’s equally if not more important to run an external scan of your Magento installation. Here I’ll cover why and how.
In a talk I’m preparing titled, “Imagining A World Without Caching”, I’m benchmarking the impact of many different forms of caching. One type of caching that the talk covers is “edge caching” a.k.a. content delivery networks (CDNs). I spent a lot of time on Google trying to find hard data showing the impact that implementing a CDN had on page load times. Unfortunately, after nearly an hour of Googling, I couldn’t find the data I was looking for.
As such, I decided to do my own benchmarking. Here, I’ll share my data.
First things first, let’s address a question that I couldn’t easily find an answer to on Google. Is PHP required to execute a phar?

To the chagrin of some, tags in Jekyll are case sensitive. This means that “MySQL” and “mysql” are not the same tag.
No matter whether you’re using jekyll-archives for your tag archives pages, or a custom solution, it’s likely that you’ve felt some pain as a result of case sensitivity. I recently went through every post on this blog and to add consistent casing to my tags.
Here I’ll outline a solution I’ve developed to help alleviate the pain of dealing with case sensitivity and tags in Jekyll.
I recently had the need to extract the value of a Set-Cookie response header in PHP. Google lead me
pecl_http which isn’t available with PHP out of box, and is a pain to install.
Other Google results suggest defining your own function.
Here’s a quick overview of how to use it…
