I just wanted to throw a quick thank you to the folks over at Hostgator.com. I have been with them for almost 4 years now, and I can honestly say, they are truly one of the best. I have nearly 25 or so domains hosted with them, and the admin interface is very nice and easy to use. It comes with lots of features and for the most part, it is point and click. You say you want a wordpress site, no problemo! Just click on one icon, follow the prompts, fill out the basics, and presto! Customer support is first rate. In four years, I have only had to contact them once, and that was just to get my ssh account activated, and it took less than 5 minutes. Downtime? What Downtime! I think they have only had one small outage that did not last longer than 30 minutes in the last four years. If you need a website or are looking to move your existing sites, I would not go anywhere else but Hostgator.com

Here is a little plug-in for WordPress that I created to grab the USER_AGENT header string.  It is very simple at best, so don’t expect to move any mountains with it.  You can read more about it on The User Agent Identify page.

You may have noticed that I am using the super slick SuperSlider-Login plugin on this site.  You can see it in the top right corner of the page.
SuperSlider Login

I noticed that it works perfectly in FireFox but IE8 just refused to render the CSS properly.  Anyhow, under the SuperSlider plugin settings, I chose the black appearance and vertical display. The plugin worked as expected in FF but under IE8, when I clicked on “Log In” button, IE8 would only drop the slider about 10px and not display anything else.

To fix this issue, I had to edit the black_vertical.css file under the /wp-content/plugins/superslider-login/plugin-data/superslider/ssLogin/black/

In the .css file, find the #loginpanel section and simply add Height: 240px; or whatever height you want to give it. I chose 240px but you can play with it to fit your needs. This fix doesn’t seem to affect Firefox. It may or may not work for you, but that’s what I did and now it seems to display properly.
