Having high quality content that is updated regularly and well presented will keep your customers coming back.

SQL Server | Reset Identity Column

When you create a table in SQL Server, you would also have an Identity Primary Key. This type of key would increase as new rows are added. But sometimes you would just need to delete all the rows and start all over again.

The next code that will make this possible, and restart the Primary Key from 0, thus the new row will be set as 1: Continue reading

In my opinion you could start blogging as soon as you can even before you start your business. It takes a bit of time until search engines start indexing your pages.

Blogging is a relatively low cost activity that will add value to your business for a long time to come, and in many cases blogging alone can push your business to prosperity getting users to your site that wouldn’t normally come. Read more on how to blog and how to start…

Change Lightbox 0.5 Image Size

Update 2011: For those people who had problems with the below instructions.. please find in on my website here. And when you’re there take a look at my site and see what you think about it 🙂

Lightbox 2 has the functionality to set maximum width and height. But what about previous versions? To set the maximum image width and height for lightbox (version 0.5) you need to do some extra coding yourself. Open the jquery.lightbox-0.5.js file and search for the next pieces of code (in bold below):

    settings = jQuery.extend({
        maxWidth: null,
        maxHeight: null,
    ...

Then search for the next function (in bold) and write copy and paste the code underneath it: Continue reading

ASP.Net 4.0 Validate Request

When creating a CMS sometimes you need to allow certain tags pass through the ASP.Net Validation. To allow tags be posted, in v2.0, you had to include the following tag in the page directive:

ValidateRequest="false"

But in .Net 4.0, this is not enough. You also need to include the next tag (httpRuntime) in the web.config file under <system.web>:

<system.web>
<compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0" />
<httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" />
</system.web>

There is also other information on Error validation in .Net 4.0 here
