    Ultimate Member Plugin 403 Forbidden Error

    Published . Last updated .

    This post is dedicated to a simple but tricky gotcha in the WordPress plugin Ultimate Member. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Ultimate Member it is a plugin that adds enhanced user account management abilities to your WordPress site. Put simply the plugin allows you to:

    The list really could go on and on but suffice it to say that Ultimate Member adds a lot of free functionality to your WordPress site. If you manage a big WordPress site the paid extensions can take your site even further; I’m being serious, this is not a paid post, I really love what Ultimate Member is doing for WordPress.

    Trusting user input in PHP’s chmod: decimal vs. octal

    Published . Last updated .

    The PHP manual on chmod has a subtle little warning about providing a decimal number instead of an octal when calling the chmod function:

    Mode is not automatically assumed to be an octal value, so to ensure the expected operation, you need to prefix mode with a zero (0).

    So what does this warning really mean and more importantly what is a programmer to do when allowing users to input the mode themselves? Besides shouting out never allow the user to do this! and calling it case closed, I would like to show you what you can do to solve this problem and a legitimate reason why you might use this solution in your application.

    Solving bugs I didn’t know I had!

    Published . Last updated .

    This has been a very eventful week and a very successful one as far as my programming career goes. Besides the post I put up a few days ago, Knowing when it’s time to toss code out!, I also stumbled on to a bug that turned out not to be a bug and figured I should share.

    So the background of this post in true TL;DR fashion: JavaScript has a bug that returns OBJECT when checking the type of something that is NULL. For the full explanation of this and to get caught up to speed on what I’m talking about so far you should read Dr. Axel Rauschmayer’s post The history of “typeof null”.

    The Revealing Module Pattern + A Beginners Mistake

    Published . Last updated .

    Having presented my Senior Project – Hive Learning Management System – to the powers that be and about to graduate from Brigham Young University Idaho in less than a week, I was less than thrilled to realize I made a major beginners mistake in all of the JavaScript self revealing modules for Hive. In this article I’ll share with you what the revealing module pattern is all about and how you can avoid my annoying and time consuming mistake.

    As a precursor to this article, and your going to have to take my word on this since I can’t find the original article, I’m fairly certain I was taught self revealing modules incorrectly from some programmers blog post. He seemed so knowledgeable.
