Skrill Asking For IBAN

Recently skrill (moneybookers.com) modified the withdrawl process for wire transfer to banks. When withdrawing money, they  ask for your  IBAN . Now

<h3>what is IBAN?</h3>

IBAN is international Bank Account Number, which can be generated from your local bank account number and swift code easily. IBAN its not a new information, it is generated by your bank account number and swift code after doing some calculations on it.

I faced a lot of trouble when i called Bank Alfalah, Lahore and asked them my IBAN. They told me Alafalah does not have an IBAN. I called them again and same reply. Then i decided to so something on my own. I used a tool to generate the IBAN and also followed the steps given by State Bank Of Pakistan to verify that my IBAN was correct. Luckily I was able to generate the correct number and received my money from skrill in my account 2 days back.

Use this tool to calculate IBAN.

Display Category Names in Multiple Columns

Sometimes you have a lot of categories, you cannot simply list them down as one column. In such a case you would like to have it displayed in multiple columns. We will use wordpress built-in functions to list categories, so that any new ones are automatically added to the list.
You can display the category names in footer in 2 or columns in your theme. This can be done by using wp_list_categories() and playing with some mathematics. Normally you can find code that displays category names in two columns but this snippet will do it in as many columns as you want. Have a look at this tip and you will love it!!

You would like the posts from one category to display an image when it does not have an image attachment with itself, so if an author leaves out or forgets a to put a featured image, you don’t have a blank image for that post and a category image is displayed automatically.

HTML Doctype Declaration – HTML 5 Doctype

What is a DocType?
The doctype declaration should be the first item to appear in the source markup of any web page. It is an instruction to the web browser (or other user agent) and it identifies the version of the markup language in which the page is written. It refers to a known Document Type Definition, or DTD for short. The DTD sets out the rules for that of markup, enabling the browser to render the content accordingly.
Why a DocType?
Per HTML and XHTML standards, a DOCTYPE (short for “document type declaration”) informs the validator which version of (X)HTML you’re using, and must appear at the very top of every web page. DOCTYPEs are a key component of compliant web pages: your markup and CSS won’t validate without them.

DOCTYPES are also essential to the proper rendering and functioning of web documents in compliant browsers like Mozilla, IE5/Mac, and IE6/Win.

A recent DOCTYPE that includes a full URI (a complete web address) tells these browsers to render your page in standards–compliant mode, treating your (X)HTML, CSS, and DOM as you expect them to […]
