About this site
This blog — sometimes known as my "Braindump" — is my platform for experimentation and community interaction. It is a way of offloading thoughts.

Unfortunately I’m not a WordPress Sensei yet. Many small issues are becoming a hindrance taking time away from my goal of sharing knowledge.

If you are that Sensei, willing to help me out, please send me a private message.

I installed WordPress using the Bitnami pre-configured WordPress application and now I have the Bitnami banner in the lower right corner of the page on that WordPress site. How can I remove it?


On your AWS Lightsail dashboard you find your instance

Clicking on the larger than icon will start a console session.
Type the following command in the console:

sudo /opt/bitnami/apache2/bnconfig –disable_banner 1

And gone it is.

I have a strong preference for the use of teaser text. When I create a post I would like to show the title and a teaser on the frontpage. The teaser should be automatically pulled from the beginning portion of the item content. I really dislike the broken sentences solutions. I would much rather see the full first paragraph or an excerpt if that is available. How do I get WordPress to make this happen?

I decided to buy a nice theme from RocketTheme, the next challenge is figuring out how to work with it.
