I'm a hobbyist PHP/JavaScript programmer - recently back after a couple years of non-programming. My current fetish is WordPress. CSS is a weakness of mine, since design in general is also a weakness - I'm a little too "left-brained", or so I've been told.

comment What wireframing tools can produce something that looks like a finished website?
Timely advice, @Lèsemajesté. I was just last night looking for something like "prototyping", but couldn't come up with the right terminology. By timely, obviously I mean for me, since your comment is nearly a year old (to a 1.5 year-old Q). :)

comment GWT “Big traffic change for top URL”
Just a heads-up. For me, opening your link in Chrome incognito shows your site just fine. This is with multiple tries, closing Chrome each time.

comment Why do we need to pay for domain privacy?
@Lèsemajesté: The price it costs a host (or any business, for that matter) to provide a service has little to do with the amount it charges (or doesn't charge) to actually provide the service - as noted in my $0.50 domain name reference. You charge what the market will bear. Registrars charge for domain privacy because the market bears it. Eventually, the market won't.

comment Why do we need to pay for domain privacy?
They could give it for free, if they wanted. But why would they want to give for free something the can make money from? Those that do give it away are expecting to get your $$ from you in other ways, similar to how registrars get you in the door with $0.50 domain names (losing a few dollars for every domain sold - but only in the short-term).

comment How to stop local newspaper from thwarting my efforts to promote a new competing site through their paper?
@Lèsemajesté: OP is saying it's "much needed" by the community because it's free and interactive, and will generate income for OP.

comment Is it good to have ONLY social login in my website?
@JohnConde, rarely ever is there a "one right answer". It may generate debate (it hasn't yet). But, it is a valid Question, IMO, because it is specifically asking for any pro's and con's to this approach...very valuable information for any webmaster thinking of going this route. Most Questions have multiple, widely varying answers, and the cream floats to the top. :) Edit: forgot to mention, there could be cons that are very persuasive and relevant, that a beginner might not be aware of, e.g., "No! don't do that because X, Y and Z!!!" or whatever.

comment How can I use this freely available WordPress theme?
+1 on the paranoia spiel. @anilkumble789, using themes/plugins from untrusted sources is like unprotected sex with strangers - bad things can happen. Not only could an unscrupulous developer be doing what JCL1178 said, they could be capturing login/db info, etc. Keep in mind, I'm in no way saying anything specifically about the company linked to in the Question.

@user926652: You need to find out from your friend if he purchased web hosting with GoDaddy or anyone else.

comment How to upload a web site
I'm unfamiliar with DBP, but it doesn't sound like hosting, which is what you need to have in order to upload a site. A domain without hosting is like a street address without a house - you need to build your home (web hosting).

comment How does mathjax equations affect seo? Would inserting images of my equations instead be better?
@Lèsemajesté: Very informative comment - it should be an Answer instead of a comment! :)
