HOW TO: Change iCloud Email Address

ALERT: WE HAVE MOVED TO http://codingmassacre.com/!!

Authors note: I’ve been hearing mixed results on this – some people are saying it works, yet others like me have done it fine.

One of the downfalls of iCloud is it does not appear to let you change your email address that it is under. As you can see, if you go to Settings > iCloud > Account, it does not let you change your email. However, I’ve found a quick workaround. As I stated above I’ve been getting mixed results on it working.

Here’s what I did. This was done about two hours after setting up iOS 5 on my 4th generation iPod Touch.

  • I switched all my iCloud backup stuff to “off” (contacts, calendars, reminders, all my other apps, etc)
  • After that I hit the big red “delete account” button at the bottom of the iCloud settings. It’ll warn you. Hit delete again, and it will do so. You’ll then be logged out of iCloud on the device. Simply go to the iCloud account login/setup section, and it will then let you put a new Apple ID in the box.

HOW TO: Put Newsstand In A Folder On iOS 5 [Without Jailbreaking]

ALERT: WE HAVE MOVED TO http://codingmassacre.com/!!

THIS HAS BEEN FIXED AS OF iOS 5.1!!!

Why can’t I put newsstand in a folder?” Actually, you can! I like every other Apple Device owner, was excited about iOS 5. After installing it and getting everything set up, I was annoyed at the fact that Newsstand is not allowed to go in a folder. Honestly, it’s an app I don’t think I will ever be using. I tweeted my frustration on Twitter. Luckily I found out via a few Twitter friends it it IS possible to put Newsstand in a folder, you just need to trick your device into letting you, and you need to be quick about it. Simply follow these steps:

  • Take two apps and go to create a folder
  • The second the apps are in the folder and it’s doing the folder creation animation, drag Newsstand into the folder
  • As long as you’re quick enough Newsstand will go into the folder!

If you open Newsstand while it’s in a folder your springboard will crash. If you want to use Newsstand at some point just take it out of the folder and you’re good to go!

Huge thanks to @AnataTenshi for discovering it and @_vrn for bringing it to my attention. Another thing to note is the fact that this will also work with a folder within a folder.

Update: Wow!! I didn’t think my post would reach websites like TechCrunch, Gizmodo, Macrumors, Tipb, Cult of Mac, and so on….thanks everyone! Glad you like the hack and thanks for the credit! 🙂

Club Penguin Great Snow Race 2011 Button

Code Last Updated – August 16, 2011. Latest Version: 1.0

Change Log:

1.0: Initial Code

As I do for every party I have made a new one for the upcoming Great Snow Race Party on Club Penguin. While it may not be as cool as my other ones, I like this one as it has a humor factor. You simply roll your mouse over the image and see what it has in store for you. No music this time. 🙂

This time my code only requires the <body> tag. I’ve only tested it in Atahualpa. To place it in Atahualpa go to HTML/CSS Inserts > HTML Inserts: Bottom Bottom. Paste the code there. You can find the code at the following link:

How To Add “nofollow” To Certain Blogroll Links In WordPress 3.x

ALERT: WE HAVE MOVED TO http://codingmassacre.com/!!

Earlier today I was looking on how to add “rel=nofollow” to only a few of the links to my WordPress blogroll. I came across outdated instructions, as WordPress has since changed some of their php files. After doing some searching on how to add the nofollow tag to whatever blogroll links you want I have come up with an answer.

In your website’s server go to /wp-admin/includes/. Look for meta-boxes.php. If you’re on WordPress 3.2 on line 857 add the following code. If you’re on WordPress 3.3 it’ll go on line 871.

 <tr> <th scope="row"> nofollow </th> <td> <label for="nofo"> <input class="valinp" type="checkbox" name="nofo" value="nofollow" id="nofo" <?php xfn_check('nofo', 'nofollow'); ?> /> nofollow</label> </td> </tr> 

(or get the code from Pastebin here

After that save the file and put the updated version with the new code onto your server, overwriting the old file. From then go to your website’s wp-admin/link-manager.php Go to edit an individual link. At the bottom of the Link Relationship (XFN) you will see a nofollow box.

Check it. Then click update link. You’ve then successfully added the nofollow tag to that individual blogroll link! A quick look at the source code for your website will verify that it’s been done correctly.

Please note whenever you update WordPress you will have to re-add the code. If you are looking for an easy way to do it to all your blogroll links simply install a plugin such as Blogroll Nofollow.

1.0.1: Fixed incorrect coding causing the button to not work

About a month ago I had the idea of recreating something similar to Club Penguin’s Igloo Music Button, where you pick a song and it plays, with the option to mute it. After quite a few painstaking hours on trying to get the code to be perfect, I managed to get it to my liking. You can view it in action here. Here is the code that goes in the <head> tag. To place this in Atahualpa you would go to Add HTML/CSS Inserts > HTML Inserts: Header.

After that put this code in the section. To place this in Atahualpa you would go to Add HTML/CSS Inserts > HTML Inserts: Bottom Bottom.

Enjoy! Hopefully I can get the WordPress Plugins up and running soon!

Club Penguin Adventure Party 2011 Button

ALERT: WE HAVE MOVED TO http://codingmassacre.com!!

Code Last Updated – July 13, 2011. Latest Version 1.0.

Change Log:

1.0: Initial Code

Some of you probably remember my post with the Music Jam 2011 Button, as made by me for my website. I decided I was going to do some sort of button each month. I recently made one for the upcoming Adventure Party 2011, so here it is with instructions on how to embed it. Please note the only WordPress Theme this has been tested on is Atahualpa.

This is what it looks like normal:

When you roll your mouse over it, it’ll change to this:

Not only does the image change, but it’ll play Club Penguin Adventure Party music! This is the music is plays. As soon as you take your mouse off of the image it will stop playing. Just like my Music Jam Button it is positioned in the bottom right corner of the screen.

Anyway, this code goes in the <head> tag. To place this in Atahualpa you would go to Add HTML/CSS Inserts > HTML Inserts: Header.

<script language=”javascript” type=”text/javascript”>

function playSound(soundfile)

{

document.getElementById(“adventure”).innerHTML=

http://+soundfile+“;

}

</script>

This code goes in the <body> section. To place this in Atahualpa you would go to Add HTML/CSS Inserts > HTML Inserts: Bottom Bottom.

<span id=”adventure”></span>

<p onmouseover=”playSound(‘http://clubpenguinmemories.com/268.swf&#8217;)” onmouseout=”playSound(”);”>

<img src=”http://clubpenguinmemories.com/adventure1.png” onmouseover=”this.src=’http://clubpenguinmemories.com/adventure2.png'&#8221; onmouseout=”this.src=’http://clubpenguinmemories.com/adventure1.png'&#8221;;
style=”position:fixed;
float:right;
right:0px;
bottom:0px; “></p>

Stop Sound OnMouseOff With HTML & Javascript

ALERT: WE HAVE MOVED TO http://codingmassacre.com/!!

A week or two ago I was working with some code that when you roll a mouse over an image, and when you roll the mouse off of the image the sound stops. However, I was having quite a bit of difficulty with figuring out how to make it work, and Google was no help. Once the necessary code is in the <head> tag, add the following to the body:

<p onmouseover=”playSound(‘http://clubpenguinmemories.com/268.swf&#8217;)” onmouseout=”playSound(”);”>

After that you would add the image code. Reference this post on how to combine it with images. Anywho, looking at the code you can see that on the mouse over it’ll play the sound, 268.swf. In the (”) you’d simply put your own sound between the ”. Then you add onmouseout and trick it into playing no sound. As far as I am aware there is no “stopsound(”);” command. If you need any help implimenting code simply comment below.
