New Architect Site for Brisbane

This week we profile a new website we have assisted with for Jamin Architecture in Brisbane.

They design beautiful, functional, three-dimensional spaces that people want to spend time in. Their portfolio includes new homes and renovations, apartment and town house developments, retail spaces, restaurant and bar fitouts, and office buildings. Jamin Architecture offer building design, architecture and interior design—integrated, or as stand-alone services.

They don’t just deliver some drawings but rather will walk with you through the whole project, from when you first bring your ideas until your space is built and ready to occupy. Check out Brisbane Architect – Jamin Architecture

Jamin’s team offer an integrated service for building design and now they have an Architecture team which handle some of the projects requiring a qualified Architect.

Architects are professionally trained designers who work on buildings and the built environment. They combine creative design with a wide range of technical knowledge to provide integrated solutions for built and natural environments. During the five typical phases of a project the architect has a variety of roles:



Force and EMail Sender Header

We recently had a problem with emails not being sent from scripts in our websites … we had to modify PHP Settings in cPanel

We changed PHP version from native version (up one) and then hit Site Settings and changed the force mail field value to -f email@address.com and saved … then tested.


Fixed it …


WordPress Website Showing an Install Language Screen

I’ve found that when this happens the .htaccess file is often changed and the database is most likely corrupted.  I follow this in PHPmyadmin:


When your website redirects to wp-admin/install.php [FIX] :

1. Login to phpMyAdmin.
2. Select the database and click on ‘Structure’ tab.
3. Right under the list of table there is a “Check All” link. Click on it to select all tables.
4. From a “With selected:” drop-down menu right next to it, choose “Check table”.

To Repair:

1. Login to phpMyAdmin
2. Choose the affected database. If you only have one database, it should choose it by default so you don’t need to do anything.
3. In the main panel, you should see a list of your database tables. Check the boxes by the tables that need repair.
4. At the bottom of the window just below the list of tables, there is a drop down menu. Choose “Repair Table”

How to add a new administrator to your WordPress from the database

This video will show you how to add a new administrator to your WordPress using your database. This is particularly handy if your website is ever hacked and your user account is deleted, or if a client gives you access to their web hosting but can’t either remember or doesn’t have their WordPress administrator login.

This video moves pretty quick but don’t forget that you can always pause at various screens when you need the details. When you’re creating the user you need to add email login and password and don’t forget to make the password MD5 format from the drop-down.

Then in the user meta table, there are two rows to add. Then you should be a login to your WordPress with the new user account … Check the video below


Motorhome Upgrades

We took our motorhome back recently to Allbrand Caravan Services in Brisbane to have a few thing repaired  and we thought we may as well upgrade our solar and battery system at the same time. 

We doubled the panels to 2Kw and also swapped in some new batteries and I recently tested it off the grid for 3 days. Even in mostly overcast conditions it was completely fine. I noticed the lights dim a little as the fridge phased in and out but everything was showing string charge even as we left.

Big thanks to Todd and the crew at Allbrand. I recommend them for all caravan repairs in Brisbane.

They can install most accessories as well as repairing damage … and always super helpful.


Caravan Electric Brakes in Brisbane

We are constantly working on expanding the profile of some local businesses and one of the things that we manage for them is regular content additions for their websites.

Each month we draft up an article on a pre-agreed topic. We choose our topics based on feedback from the business, search engine traffic potential and variety. Once we post them we take the URL and post that to our social media outlets.

That drives instant traffic to the new articles and we hope some people will also link to the article from that and our media promotion.

Our latest articles are for Brisbane Caravan repairs experts Allbrand Caravan Services and Sandgate Autoelectrics who service cars, trucks and boats.

Control Zoom on the new Google Maps Embed (iframe)

The iframe code from the new Google Maps didn’t give me a zoom control. Adding &zoom=10 to the scr url didn’t work but it seems shortening it to just &z=10 works just fine.

Great trick and although its manual it saved me some grief on a recent project. I couldn’t find the tip easily so its here for the future 🙂
