Enable Registration in WordPress

In WordPress custom installations, the option for Registration of new users is disabled by default. To enable the registrations and allow logins for public you can follow the below steps.

Single site installation:

As soon as the installation is completed go to the WordPress Dashboard -> Settings

You will find an option Allow new registrations, you may need to select the Default Role for the newly registered members.


Multi-site/Network installation:

In case if you have installed WordPress in Multi site mode go to the Network Admin -> Settings and select the options under Allow new registrations section.


Once the registration is enabled it may be needed to add login options at places to find it easily. Follow these methods to do the same.

Method 1:

Add Meta widget in the sidebars or in footers. Select Appearance -> Widgets and select the Meta Widget.  Note that the menu will be available in Individual Site Dashboard, not in the Network Admin dashboard in case of Multi-site installation.



Method 2:

Add the login link in your Posts/Pages and it should be in the pattern, http(s)://HOSTNAME(:PORT)/(SUBDOMAINS)/wp-login.php.

When I tried to run Android application in my mobile from Android Studio, I stuck with the error stating the application my Device was Offline.

When I run the command adb devices the error as follows

To Enable the USB debugging option in Android device

1. Go to Settings, and select Applications > Development
2. Enable USB debugging
3. For Devices with Android KitKat and go to Settings > About devices > Tap 7 times on “Build Number”
4. Once Developer Option is enabled in the Settings, Enable USB debugging
5. Update the Android SDK Tools in Android SDK Manager
6. Traverse to \android-sdk\platform-tools and run adb devices
7. If still the problem exists restart the ADB server

adb kill-server
set ADB_TRACE=all
adb nodaemon server
adb devices

8. The ADB_TRACE will help you trace and resolving the issues like permission and others.
9. If still the problem exists kill the adb process killall adb in linuxoids and taskkill /IM adb.exe

2. Paste them into \lib\android\bin
3. Run the command adb version from the same folder in command prompt
4. Result should be as follows
Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.31
5. Version should be greater or equal to 1.0.31

Errors running builder ‘JavaScript Validator’ on project

I got this annoying exception on every auto build of my Dynamic Web Project.

“Errors occurred during the build.
Errors running builder ‘JavaScript Validator’ on project ‘GenieAlert’.

I was trying to stop the validation of Javascript in the Eclipse properties with the following options,

Windows -> Preferences -> Validation -> Client-side JavaScript Validator -> Checked Manual & Unchecked Build.

This option didn’t work out, then I realized that it happens only on the Build time. The following option came in handy to do that.

Project -> Properties -> Builders -> Unchecked ‘Javascript Validator’

Sometimes when you try to run the Web projects from eclipse on servers these JavaScript validation stops the deployment of the project on servers stating “JavaScript Validation Exception found”. I hope the above solutions will help in those situations too.
