Have you written a WordPress post that you would like to publish another time and another date? Is there a way to publish a WordPress post at a special time?
Thomas likes to do a lot of work before he is going on holiday and before the weekends. Now he would like to write some blog posts that are to be published during the Christmas holiday, but he doesn’t want to actually work during the Christmas holiday. So, how can he schedule blog posts using WordPress to that it will publish the articles during the holiday?
Schedule posts with WordPress
Thomas was very happy to notice that publishing WordPress posts at a given time and a date was very easy, at least as he found out how and where to do so.
How is it done?
When Thomas has finished writing the actual article, he goes to the “Publish” box on the right side of the blog post itself. You can see it on the picture beneath.
If you see the picture above, you can see the arrow pointing at the “publish” text. It is set to immediately at the moment, but if you press edit, you can easily set the time and date for the article to be published.
If you want to have the article published on December 24th at 18.00, it will look like this.
Now all Thomas has to do is to press the Schedule button (earlier Publish was written, but since the article is set to be published in the future, the text has now changed to schedule).
That is how easy it is to schedule an article for a future release in WordPress! And, since Thomas uses SteemPress to publish his article to Steemit, this will also help him out schedule articles for future release on Steemit!
Thomas is a gigantic WordPress fan. He would never use any other CMS-system, and he hasn’t even tried (and almost not even heard of) Drupal. But, one day he is offered a challenge.
A friend of Thomas has been running a Drupal website for more than 10 years. The website consists of more than 1500 posts and articles, and now he wants to import all the content to his brand new WordPress site. Is that even possible? The thought of copying all those articles manually makes Thomas feel sick and depressed. There has got to be a way to do this job automatically, or maybe not?
Understanding Drupal is hard for Thomas
The first thing Thomas understands is that Drupal is quite different from WordPress when it comes to the structure of blog posts and content. He bumps into the word “nodes” lots of times, and he is quite confused. What can he do?
Thomas finds a WordPress plugin
Thomas has been looking for a solution, and he has found a WordPress plugin named FG Drupal to WordPress. It looks very promising, and he quickly gives it a try. To make it word, he has to add the information about the SQL database of the Drupal website, and of course, the login credentials and name of the database. After that the job is easy, and the content is imported.
There are some options that needs to be set when it comes to importing media, featured images and so on, but Thomas tries a couple of times to make sure everything is imported the way he wants to.
Thomas isn’t completely satisfied
There is, however, a few problems. The free version of FG Drupal to WordPress doesn’t import categories, nor taxonomies (that is, tags). This is problematic, because those are a crucial part of the structure of the website. For that reason, Thomas decides to purchase the Premium version. He feels sorry about paying 50 Euro for a plugin that he will only use once, but it is worth it (after all, his friend is paying), and because it has to be there fore the website to work like it should.
After importing, Thomas has to install some extra plugins in order to see the imported Drupal content correctly. This is because of the strange structure of the Drupal databse and website, but after some hours, the job is done, and he is 99% satisfied with the job he has done.

Just out of the blue, Thomas suddenly saw this annoying text in the lower right corner of Windows 10. It said Test Mode, Windows 10 Home, Build 17134.rs4_release.180410-1804. No matter which background he chose, the text remained there above the clock in the right corner of his Windows desktop.
Thomas is a messy guy, and he normally leaves a great mess wherever he goes. But, his Windows desktop, that is a tidy place, and he likes it to be in order. So, when this Test Mode text appeared in the lower right corner of Windows, Thomas wanted to get rid of it as soon as possible.
You can see what the error message looked like at the picture above. Are you suffering from a similar Test Mode text or something similar in Windows 10?
Thomas looked for a solution here and there, and luckily, it was quite easy to get rid of the text. This is what Thomas did to fix the problem!
Thomas makes the Test Mode text disappear from Windows 10
To get rid of the text, Thomas did the following thing.
He enters the Command Prompt in Windows 10.
You can find it searching for Command Prompt. Make sure to right click the icon and press “Run as administrator” for this to work.
Thomas copies the following lines and runs them in the Command Prompt. First: bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS Second: bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING OFF
He closes the command prompt and restarts his computer.
Thomas’ is quite curious to see whether this will get the task done or not. As Windows successfully restarts, he is happy to see that the Test Mode text has been removed from Windows 10, and it is now a beautiful and empty spot (like you can see on the picture beneath).
Thomas can now keep on working with peace at heart, knowing that he managed to get rid of the Test Mode Windows 10 error message.
There are quite a lot of other Test Mode build versions, so even if you have another build number, you can still follow these instructions to remove the watermark from Windows 10.
Did you manage to get rid of the Test Mode watermark in Windows 10 after reading this tutorial? Please write a comment and let Thomas know the outcome of his little guide!
Thomas wants to get the best YouTube channel on the Internet. He uploads new videos frequently, and always enjoys watching his own productions.
He uses a cool application to create his videos, and he can upload the videos directly from the application to his YouTube channel. He normally looks through his videos several times before uploading, but sometimes errors get in any way. And that is just what has happened to Thomas.
He looked through his most recent YouTube video and suddenly discovered several typos and a few other things he didn’t like. The problem now is that he cannot edit the video itself on YouTube, and even worse, he doesn’t find a way to delete the video. He tries to find a way to edit the video and delete it but doesn’t succeed (at once).
How to delete a video from my YouTube channel?
Thomas keeps looking around, and finally, he managed to find a method that will let him delete any video from his YouTube channel. This is what he needs to do!
Thomas visits the Creator Studio inside his YouTube channel!
Thomas selects “Video Manager” and “Videos” in the menu.
Thomas selects “Delete” from the drop-down menu
The YouTube video has now been deleted.
The video has now been deleted from YouTube, and Thomas starts making the changes to the video in his video-editor, before uploading it to YouTube over again.
Hopefully, these instructions from Thomas will help you delete your YouTube video as well. Should you have more trouble, or need some help on the way, please write a comment, and Thomas will do his uttermost to help you out!
Thomas wants to stream the latest episode of Doctor Doctor on 9Now while in Austria. But, he gets an error message? What can Thomas do to watch 9Now from abroad?
Thomas likes sitting with his laptop on his lap (isn’t that why they call it a laptop?) to watch TV series and live streams of all his favorite sports. One of his favorite shows is Doctor Doctor, and he normally streams this show on the 9Now website. The only problem is that he can only stream it when in Australia, as whenever he tries to stream 9Now outside Australia, he gets the following error message.
This frustrates him, and he wants to find a way in which he can stream 9Now, also when outside Australia. So, what can he do? There are lots of other 9Now shows he might be interested in streaming as well, but neither of them can be streamed as long as he doesn’t find a solution.
Thomas looks for a way to stream 9Now abroad
Thomas has been reading articles here and there, and the most common solution described is using a so-called VPN service. Thomas has a VPN subscription to the VPN provider HideMyAss, so he gives it a try, but it doesn’t work. Even though he gets an actual Australia IP address by connecting to a server in Australia, he still sees the same error message.
But, he has read on another site that this is quite common and that most VPN providers are blocked by 9Now. There is, however, an exception, and that is the VPN provider ExpressVPN.
He is a bit anxious about spending money on yet another VPN subscription, but since they have a 30-day full refund policy, he decides to give it a try anyway.
He signs up for the 12-month package (and he gets 3 more months as a bonus for free). This is a great deal, and if it actually works, he will be happy he signed up for this package. If it doesn’t work, he will simply ask for a full refund.
He opens the ExpressVPN application and decides to connect to a server in Syndey, Australia.
Once the connection has been made, he restarts his browser, and he visits the 9Now website again. He is a bit nervous, hoping that it will actually work, but at the same time fearing that it won’t.
He visits the 9Now website, selects the most recent episode of Doctor Doctor and clicks his mouse. He waits for a few seconds, and suddenly a commercial shows up, and a few seconds later, the show starts. It worked! Thomas is happy, and he runs to grab some popcorn before continuing to stream his favorite 9Now show abroad.
Can you imagine how happy Thomas is that this worked? Due to his enthusiasm, Thomas also installed the ExpressVPN application on his Android phone to see if it worked there as well. And yes, it did! He had to download the 9Now application (.apk-file) manually, but once that was done, it all worked smoothly.
To make it even better, Thomas tried to watch Tenplay (another Australian channel with great TV shows online) using the same connection, and he couldn’t hold back his smile as this worked as well.
Hopefully, the example of Thomas will help you stream 9Now outside Australia as well. Should you have comments or questions, write them down and Thomas will do his best to help!
Thomas was working with a little explainer video when Windows suddenly turned into something that he calls “upside-down” mode. Everything went upside down, and the menu bar suddenly was on the top of the screen.
Thomas has been through a lot, but this was incredibly annoying. Not long ago Thomas had to fix it when Windows turn black and white, and now this… Maybe he should starting using a Mac instead, or Ubuntu? No, that cannot happen, as Thomas is too much of a Windows guy. But, this was really annoying, and Thomas had to fix the upside-down mode quickly because he was unable to do anything at the moment.
Take a look at the screenshot above. Thomas was sitting there and working on a video explainer, and suddenly his screen moved everything and he had to keep his head in 90 degrees to the right to read anything. Later he discovered that it could just as well have moved in the other direction, or totally upside down, but he didn’t care, all Thomas needed was to find a solution.
How did Thomas make the upside-down mode in Windows disappear?
It wasn’t much that needed to be done to fix the problem. In fact, all he needed to do was to press three buttons at the same time, and the problem was fixed. So, what did Thomas press?
The solution to the problem was to press the following buttons on the keyboard:
Control (CTRL) + ALT + UP (arrow key)
As Thomas pressed these three buttons at the same time, Windows at once jumped back to normal mode, and he could keep on working. For fun, Thomas tried clicking the same combination with the different arrow directions afterward and doing so, Thomas was able to make Windows turn right, turn left, and of course, upside down. But, he quickly returned to the normal Windows mode afterward!
Did the solution Thomas found help you as well? He certainly hopes so!
Thomas was writing an article when an incredible thing happened. He was just about to copy and paste a text when Windows suddenly went into a black and white mode. Thomas has no clue how it happened, and he has no clue how to fix the problem either.
Thomas had to look around the Internet to find a solution, and luckily he didn’t have to search for a very long time in order to find a solution to his problem. There is something about black and white pictures that make them look nice. But, Thomas was very annoyed when Windows went black and white, so he wanted to fix the problem at once.
The solution to his problem was a very easy one. You can take a look at the short YouTube video beneath to see the solution, or just keep reading the article beneath the video.
How Thomas got the Windows colors back?
To get the colors back to Windows, Thomas had to do a very simple thing. You probably know that the copy shortcut in Windows is Control-C. And, if you want to switch back and forth between color-mode and black/white-mode in Windows, you need to press Control-WindowsButton-C. So, they are very close to one another, but they have a very different function.
Get Windows colors back = Control+WindowsButton+C
Are you happy? Thomas is really happy the colors have returned, and he can gladly keep up writing his planned article.
