Adjust Thumbnail Size in WordPress 2.5

in Tutorial/Wordpress by

Here is a simple guide how to change the default size of the thumbnails that WordPress 2.5 creates when you upload an image.

Unlike all previous version, WordPress 2.5 has a very handy new feature. It lets you specify custom thumbnail size for your uploaded images.

To adjust the thumbnail size to your liking, go to Settings > Miscellaneous and change the thumbnail width and height under Image sizes section. Let’s set the width and height to 100×100 for this example.

Also, make sure the Crop to size option is selected, and confirm the changes.

(With Crop to size checked, you don’t have to worry about what size your original image is. It will be adjusted to fit your specified size)

That’s an easy way, right? Gud lak!

How to Archive ALL Your Gmail Messages

in Internet/Tutorial by

Depending on your email habits you might also have a problem with maintaining such a big inbox. However, it would be near impossible to clean up an inbox with 50,000 unread entries.

Now the drastic approach here is move everything away from sight, into Archive view. This way, nothing is deleted, and You can still search for your messages by keyword.

Here’s a simple way to doing this.

First, select all the messages currently on-screen by clicking the “All” selection option either above or below the message list.

Gmail Archive 1

Gmail will now tick the checkbox on all the messages currently on screen. However, you might still have thousands not covered by the current view. Gmail will ask you if you want to select all the conversations, including those out of view.

Gmail Archive 2

Click the link, and Gmail will now select everything, including message threads outside of the current screen.

Gmail Archive

Next step would be to click the “Archive” button to send all the selected conversations outside of “Inbox view.”

You can repeat the sequence regularly for maintenance, or whenever you get overwhelmed by thousands of messages in your inbox.

Gud lak! 😀
