Gheimat Site

I am happy with PHP

It was Feb 2018 that I decided to learn PHP. Because of the lovely W3Schools site, learning the PHP was easy to start. In the second week I tried to write some codes in Notepad++ and then I switched to Eclipse. After two months, I had a simple website (Gheimat.xyz [view it on the arichive.org], a Telegram robot (https://t.me/Gheimatxyz_bot) and a WordPress plugin (Warehouse updater from an external XML for Woocommerce). For ten months I was mostly busy with my sales sites in ASP Classic, help some companies to maintain their WP sites, taking photos, passing food and industrial photography courses, professional photo editing classes and … so I have no free time to start another project with PHP. In

This site needs your help

Today, I published the above picture “this site needs your help” to my Instagram account to ask my followers to support my web site. As Instagram is an easy to use application and many people all around the world have it on their mobile phones, so each good picture will collect 10s or 100s even millions of likes in a few hours. Unfortunately adding links to Instagram posts is not possible! I am glad to inform you that this request has collected six likes in 30 minutes, I predict that this picture would raise more than 50 likes in next 24 hours (about 60% of the average number of likes on my photos posted on Instagram). Thank you, dear followers! Anyway,

Online Shop removed

It was a hard decision, but I had no cure except removing Online Shop from my site. Managing a multilingual site in WordPress is not as easy as I was thinking at first. More than two years, I had used qTranslateX for this purpose, and I have had many unexpected problems with it. Finally, I decided to use WPML, migrating to WPML was a tough process and after I thought that everything is OK, I found more than 6000 unwanted categories in my Woocommerce shop! Removing these unwanted categories was something possible, but I think handling a multilingual online shop with open source tools like WordPress and Woocommerce need someone to work full time on them. As I am too

URL Shortener

Sometime in Iran, we should re-invent the wheel! Unexpectedly I understood that none of my “bit.ly” Short URL doesn’t work because this site is blocked by Iran government. For a while, I used goo.gl, but bit.ly gives customers more professional services like a hosted domain name. Finally, I decided to set my URL Shortener. I chose sml.yt for the domain name and installed specified software for it. I hope everything is OK now. Why should we use an URL Shortener? There are five reasons on (http://sml.yt/o) 1. They make links more manageable 2. They can track and compile click data 3. They can be transformed into social media services 4. They can provide users useful features 5. They promote sharing

Team Photo Blog – MycamTalks

Yesterday I installed WP on MyCamTalks.com  (a team photo blog in English and Persian). I  also uploaded some photos and their description for the test. Javaneh Azimi and I have created this photoblog to have better communication with people all around the world. We strongly believe that Instagram and other social media cannot cover our needs. However, we will continue to upload and share our contents on other apps, but complete contents and large size photos will be uploaded to this site only. We (current and future website members) will upload daily photos there, there is no limitation about the subjects and location of pictures, but the members will take pictures. So you should expect many original photos there.

Online Multilingual Picture Dictionary

The “Online Multilingual Picture Dictionary” test site is available on www.picturedictionary.info. This picture dictionary contains some languages and is developing by a dynamic team of languages and cultures lovers. I have been on the consultant team, and now I try to introduce this test site by social media. Javaneh Azimi and I (the project owner and developer) idea for this project is: If people know more about other languages and culture, they will understand each other more, and this will cause a decrease in regional and international conflicts. Please keep your fingers crossed for this aim. Thank you

1000 daily visitors

1000 daily visitors up to march 2016

I know that having a real challenge will cause that I enjoy from my life, always should be something to fight for. I knew that I have not written on my weblog for a while, and unfortunately, recently, I just used social media to write and publish my notes and pictures. Recently I seldom write about my hobbies and job activities. As tomorrow is not promised to anyone, So I am going to publish at least three posts per week. I hope the new procedure helps me to have about 1000 daily visitors instead of current 10-15 visitors up to March 2016.

robots traffic

Advertisement system and search engine robots

Last week I re-activated my old advertisement system on one of our company high traffic sites. And after one day I understood that the number of views and clicks are not reasonable, I mean they were ten times higher than I expected. When I checked the raw site logs, unexpectedly I found about 80% of the site traffic belonged to search engine robots and crawlers!!! Not only famous American ones like Google, Bing and Yahoo but also Russian Yandex, Chinese Baidu and Iranian Yooz were very active on the site. There were two solutions to solving the problem: 1. Blocking search engines traffic and preventing their robots and crawlers to indexing my site, an expert knows this action means suicide

Looking for a good web hosting to move

Last year www.resellerclub.com forced me to move my domains and webs from their servers just because I am Iranian. Some of my web sites were there from 2006, finding a useful web hosting provider in limited time was awful. I moved my brothers, my wife and mine sites to an Iranian web hosting company. At first, everything was OK, but step by step, the quality of their services changed, and now after about one year, I am entirely disappointed, every day their server goes out of service. I contacted them, but they have no convincing answer. The company site is www.serverpars.com Because of the worst quality that I have ever experienced, I am looking for : Linux web hosting for

Web Project Consultant

Web Project Consultant Today, the manager of a big web project called and informed me that I had been chosen as their web project consultant! The project is not started yet, and they are collecting and analysing market data right now. As I know, the beta version of their website will be up and running about October 2014. The project subject is food and diet. Although there are too many projects with this subject all around the world, it seems that the investors have found something new and exclusive that makes the site different. I am not allowed to say the project name and details before running the beta version. In the first phase, they are thinking about 5000 unique

Another Step Forward

I am always unsatisfied to put incomparable products in a single online shop. For example putting a high quality Laser Measurement form a German company  beside a bad quality product form China, will cause that the site visitor be completely confused. So we made there new site for 3 famous brands : www.stabilashop.ir www.garminshop.ir www.suuntoshop.ir I call this : Another Step Forward

2 web Projects

I was happy that I had two web projects at a time, an extensive project and a simple and small one. The first project was a complete computer shop contains: Unlimited products and groups Auto image resize Five pictures for each product Fast and smart search Unlimited product features Shopping cart Shopping history One Payment Gateway Compare two products in one time Related products offer Unlimited delivery types Calculating the delivery fee based on distance Smart Delivery address based on Iran provinces/City/Village database of Iran GPS Map site and …   I designed this project from zero. But I used Iran GPS Map cities and villages database to calculate the delivery fee. The project has been finished now, and the
