If you are a disciplined developer you probably take a lot of time to read the manual and probably also use the examples provided by the vendor, right?  This is what I was doing in my attempt to get the LinkedIn PHP API working.  LinkedIn recommends using file_get_contents() with a stream context.  Looks good to me.  After you get your GETs...

Debugging 500 errors

500 errors are notoriously vague errors that can occur for a number of reasons.  Technically the 500 error is defined as an internal server error.  This does not tell you much but it does tell you that you NEED MORE INFORMATION. How you get that information is from your error logs.  You may look in your application error logs but they will not...

While troubleshooting difficulties with autoposting applications, we had created a facebook app for a test site.

I have a loader function that I call every time I need to update ajax-ed in content.  A funny thing was happening: the buttons kept growing bigger and bigger on each run of this function.  The culprit: additional span tags that were causing the CSS rules to be applied multiple times.  The fix: unwrap .

I'm working on the latest API of the Rackspace Cloudfiles API (php-opencloud).  I've had a bear of a time figuring everything out.  I think I was making it too complicated (plus I was starting on an older version of the PHP SDK... but that's another story).  Now that I'm figuring out the API, the Rackspace PHP developers have done a really good...
