Eliminar campo email de los comentarios de WordPress

Wow, Hacia tiempo que no me pasaba por aquí, pero estamos de vuelta.

Hoy en los foros preguntaron como se podia eliminar el campo email y agregar un campo personalizado en el formulario de los comentarios de WordPress, esta tarea aunque parece simple tiene un poco de truco ya que se deben hacer modificaciones en 3 partes distintas:

  • Front-End (Formulario)
  • Back-end (Salvar la info del nuevo campo)
  • Admin (Agregar una columna y mostrar el valor del nuevo campo)

He creado un simple plugin que hace esto, agregando un campo llamado “Phone”, aquí se los dejo.

Y el Plugin Zipeado listo para instalar comments-fields.zip

 

New look and better support system

Hey you guys and gals.

Just to let you know, a new version of my page is ready and is up, one of the must important things about this new version is the Support System, the tracking for support before this, basically was comments on the product’s pages, and that was hard to track (Sell Page, Demo Page, Email, Forums etc).

Now, in this version. I centralize the support in just one place in this way is more easy for me and overall more efficient for you to get support faster and in a better way, you can get track of your issues, get a historial, all the goodies from a Help Desk.

The new requests for support are not closed just to this Help Desk, you can still use, Email, Facebook, Twitter, etc, but ALL the requests will be channeled via the Help Desk.

Media Queries para dispositivos mobiles.

Les dejo un pequeño pero util snippet para trabajar con Media Queries, por si no lo saben con los Media Queries podemos establecer stylos especificos por tamaño de resolucion esto hace facil de reconocer las resoluciones de los dispositivos mobiles y aplicar un estilo independiente, con esta tecnica se basa todo el responsive design.

This is a small but useful snippet to work with Media Queries, in case you do not know what Media Queries are, we can establish specific styles for each resolution, in that way we can implement an independent style for each resolution, all the responsive design is based in this tecnique.

El día en que la telecracia gano.

Comenzare este texto aclarando que yo no soy analista, politólogo o mucho menos conocedor de todas las verdades, solo quiero y necesito expresar mi punto de vista de las elecciones que tuvieron lugar el día de ayer 1 de Julio del 2012 en México.

Siendo las 11 horas del 2 de Julio los resultados para Presidente de la republica Mexicana son los siguientes:

El candidato de PRI Enrique Peña nieto lleva una delantera de 6.08 puntos, muy difícil de igualar por el segundo lugar Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

Sorprendido además de triste y decepcionado me hago la pregunta

¿Cómo es que esto llego a pasar?

No concibo a primera vista el como Peña Nieto tenga la mayoría en las preferencias electorales siendo que en las redes sociales, en mi circulo personal de conocidos y familiares nadie tenia la intención de voto hacia este personaje, las encuestas en línea eran arrolladoras a favor de AMLO, columnistas e intelectuales lo rechazaban y anunciaban su voto a favor de AMLO, ¿en donde se perdió? De nuevo, la triste realidad nos da un golpe en la cara, Si, las redes sociales repudian a EPN, los intelectuales, nuestro círculo de amigos, ¿Qué paso?

Desde mi punto de vista 4 fueron los factores que decidieron esta elección:

1.- Nos olvidamos de los olvidados, solo 20% de la población tiene acceso a internet, de ellos un porcentaje está realmente informados, dentro del otro 80% se encuentran mas de 50 Millones de Mexicanos en un estado de pobreza y los televidentes, si aquellas personas que rigen sus vidas por lo que dicta el horario estelar de las televisoras Mexicanas.

Por un lado la pobreza del Mexicano olvidado por casi toda su vida, que solo se le voltea a ver cuando hay elecciones, aquellos que por la promesa de “te voy a dar tu dinerito“ votan por quien se les pida, a ellos los mueve, y perdón por como se escucha, el hambre, la esperanza de poder darle de comer algo a sus hijos el día de mañana, aquellos que viven sus vidas al día, aquellos que la maquinaria del PRI sabe quienes son y sobre todo como llegar a ellos, para muestra un boton.

¿Alguien realmente les puede reclamar algo a ellos?

2.-Además de la maquinaria del PRI se suma la campaña mediática que las televisoras crearon alrededor de EPN, una campaña que lleva por lo menos 6 años fraguándose, creando un personaje “carismático”, “guapo” con su esposa “actriz”, aquí entran los televidentes, gente que en verdad cree todo, absolutamente todo lo que la “caja idiota” les dice, gente que le dio el votó por que “es guapo”, gente que votó por que van a tener de primera dama a su “Gaviota”, señoritas que tienen su club de fans, gente que aunque les digan: “Pinche Prole, bola de ignorantes”, dicen se ve “lindo” el candidato, por dios, estamos eligiendo un Presidente, alguien que tiene que tomar decisiones importantes que afectaran la vida de todos los ciudadanos del País no un actor de novelas ni galán de televisión. Pero al final esto valió la elección la gente compro lo que le ofrecían sin cuestionarse nada.

EPN dijo una frase en el segundo debate del IFE, “Si la tele hiciera presidentes”, bueno, él es el vivo ejemplo de que la tele si hace presidentes.

El día de ayer las elecciones no fueron EPN contra AMLO ni Derecha contra Izquierda, fue una lucha de compañías multimillonarias contra el pueblo, el pueblo perdió.

3.- Los votos nulos y los votos panistas, me queda claro y estoy seguro que a muchos panistas también, que el haber votado por JVM fue como tirarle votos a la cara a EPN, literalmente les regalaron el voto, JVM no tenia la mínima posibilidad de competir por la presidencia, aun así siguió con su campaña y llamando al voto, al final de eso se trata una elección, pero también esta la soberbia de seguir peleando por algo perdido, los panista, que aun sabiendo que su candidata iba a perder votaron por ella y el voto útil nunca fue concedido aun a sabiendas de lo que pasaría que EPN ganaría tal y como ocurrió, y como cereza del pastel al final de la jornada estos mismos panistas alegaban ignorancia de los Mexicanos.

Si hablamos de los votantes que anularon su voto solo tengo 1 palabra para ellos “Cobardes”, el voto es libre y secreto, puedes votar por quien quieras o no, pero el decidir lavarse las manos y no tener una posición por lo que le pasara al país los próximos 6 años me resulta un acto de cobardía.

4.- Un punto muy importante para mi y creo que en el que todos los mexicanos estamos de acuerdo sin importar el color que defendamos, es el papel que desarrollara el IFE y el TRIFE para legitimar esta elecciones, todos absolutamente todos sabemos que el PRI violo por mucho topes de campañas, violo VEDA electoral, hubo robo de casillas, coacción y compra del voto, se debe exigir una averiguación pero real, algo que nos deje al menos con la certidumbre de que realmente los votos obtenidos por EPN son legítimos, al fin y al cabo es una democracia y en las democracias las voces de la mayoría ganan y si así lo decidieron lo acepto, con gran tristeza, pero lo aceptare pero dejando muy claro que no haya ni una sospecha de fraude, solo así.

En estos momentos aun no hay datos oficiales, aun faltan los conteos distritales y cotejar actas, no he tirado la toalla aunque reconozco que es muy difícil recuperar puntos, seguimos en pie.

Para terminar quiero decir que de cualquier forma y haya ganado quien haya ganado, la vida sigue y debemos seguirá trabajando día a día para lograr hacer de nuestro país un lugar mejor, sin importar quien lo gobierne, es simple, se civilizado en toda la extensión de la palabra.

Recuerden este es MI opinión y nada mas que eso.

Animo México.

Justice Department charges leaders of Megaupload

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT CHARGES LEADERS OF MEGAUPLOAD

WITH WIDESPREAD ONLINE COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

WASHINGTON – Seven individuals and two corporations have been charged in the United States with running an international organized criminal enterprise allegedly responsible for massive worldwide online piracy of numerous types of copyrighted works, through Megaupload.com and other related sites, generating more than $175 million in criminal proceeds and causing more than half a billion dollars in harm to copyright owners, the U.S. Justice Department and FBI announced today.

This action is among the largest criminal copyright cases ever brought by the United States and directly targets the misuse of a public content storage and distribution site to commit and facilitate intellectual property crime.

The individuals and two corporations – Megaupload Limited and Vestor Limited – were indicted by a grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia on Jan. 5, 2012, and charged with engaging in a racketeering conspiracy, conspiring to commit copyright infringement, conspiring to commit money laundering and two substantive counts of criminal copyright infringement. The individuals each face a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison on the charge of conspiracy to commit racketeering, five years in prison on the charge of conspiracy to commit copyright infringement, 20 years in prison on the charge of conspiracy to commit money laundering and five years in prison on each of the substantive charges of criminal copyright infringement.

The indictment alleges that the criminal enterprise is led by Kim Dotcom, aka Kim Schmitz and Kim Tim Jim Vestor, 37, a resident of both Hong Kong and New Zealand. Dotcom founded Megaupload Limited and is the director and sole shareholder of Vestor Limited, which has been used to hold his ownership interests in the Mega-affiliated sites.

In addition, the following alleged members of the Mega conspiracy were charged in the indictment:
• Finn Batato, 38, a citizen and resident of Germany, who is the chief marketing officer;
• Julius Bencko, 35, a citizen and resident of Slovakia, who is the graphic designer;
• Sven Echternach, 39, a citizen and resident of Germany, who is the head of business development;

• Mathias Ortmann, 40, a citizen of Germany and resident of both Germany and Hong Kong, who is the chief technical officer, co-founder and director;

• Andrus Nomm, 32, a citizen of Estonia and resident of both Turkey and Estonia, who is a software programmer and head of the development software division;

• Bram van der Kolk, aka Bramos, 29, a Dutch citizen and resident of both the Netherlands and New Zealand, who oversees programming and the underlying network structure for the Mega conspiracy websites.

Dotcom, Batato, Ortmann and van der Kolk were arrested today in Auckland, New Zealand, by New Zealand authorities, who executed provisional arrest warrants requested by the United States. Bencko, Echternach and Nomm remain at large. Today, law enforcement also executed more than 20 search warrants in the United States and eight countries, seized approximately $50 million in assets and targeted sites where Megaupload has servers in Ashburn, Va., Washington, D.C., the Netherlands and Canada. In addition, the U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va., ordered the seizure of 18 domain names associated with the alleged Mega conspiracy.

According to the indictment, for more than five years the conspiracy has operated websites that unlawfully reproduce and distribute infringing copies of copyrighted works, including movies – often before their theatrical release – music, television programs, electronic books, and business and entertainment software on a massive scale. The conspirators’ content hosting site, Megaupload.com, is advertised as having more than one billion visits to the site, more than 150 million registered users, 50 million daily visitors and accounting for four percent of the total traffic on the Internet. The estimated harm caused by the conspiracy’s criminal conduct to copyright holders is well in excess of $500 million. The conspirators allegedly earned more than $175 million in illegal profits through advertising revenue and selling premium memberships.

The indictment states that the conspirators conducted their illegal operation using a business model expressly designed to promote uploading of the most popular copyrighted works for many millions of users to download. The indictment alleges that the site was structured to discourage the vast majority of its users from using Megaupload for long-term or personal storage by automatically deleting content that was not regularly downloaded. The conspirators further allegedly offered a rewards program that would provide users with financial incentives to upload popular content and drive web traffic to the site, often through user-generated websites known as linking sites. The conspirators allegedly paid users whom they specifically knew uploaded infringing content and publicized their links to users throughout the world.

In addition, by actively supporting the use of third-party linking sites to publicize infringing content, the conspirators did not need to publicize such content on the Megaupload site. Instead, the indictment alleges that the conspirators manipulated the perception of content available on their servers by not providing a public search function on the Megaupload site and by not including popular infringing content on the publicly available lists of top content downloaded by its users.

As alleged in the indictment, the conspirators failed to terminate accounts of users with known copyright infringement, selectively complied with their obligations to remove copyrighted materials from their servers and deliberately misrepresented to copyright holders that they had removed infringing content. For example, when notified by a rights holder that a file contained infringing content, the indictment alleges that the conspirators would disable only a single link to the file, deliberately and deceptively leaving the infringing content in place to make it seamlessly available to millions of users to access through any one of the many duplicate links available for that file.

The indictment charges the defendants with conspiring to launder money by paying users through the sites’ uploader reward program and paying companies to host the infringing content.

The case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia and the Computer Crime & Intellectual Property Section in the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. The Criminal Division’s Office of International Affairs, Organized Crime and Gang Section, and Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section also assisted with this case.

The investigation was initiated and led by the FBI at the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center (IPR Center), with assistance from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations. Substantial and critical assistance was provided by the New Zealand Police, the Organised and Financial Crime Agency of New Zealand (OFCANZ), the Crown Law Office of New Zealand and the Office of the Solicitor General for New Zealand; Hong Kong Customs and the Hong Kong Department of Justice; the Netherlands Police Agency and the Public Prosecutor’s Office for Serious Fraud and Environmental Crime in Rotterdam; London’s Metropolitan Police Service; Germany’s Bundeskriminalamt and the German Public Prosecutors; and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police – Greater Toronto Area (GTA) Federal Enforcement Section and the Integrated Technological Crime Unit and the Canadian Department of Justice’s International Assistance Group. Authorities in the United Kingdom, Australia and the Philippines also provided assistance.

This case is part of efforts being undertaken by the Department of Justice Task Force on Intellectual Property (IP Task Force) to stop the theft of intellectual property. Attorney General Eric Holder created the IP Task Force to combat the growing number of domestic and international intellectual property crimes, protect the health and safety of American consumers, and safeguard the nation’s economic security against those who seek to profit illegally from American creativity, innovation and hard work. The IP Task Force seeks to strengthen intellectual property rights protection through heightened criminal and civil enforcement, greater coordination among federal, state and local law enforcement partners, and increased focus on international enforcement efforts, including reinforcing relationships with key foreign partners and U.S. industry leaders.
