Bios for XFX Radeon RX 480 4GB, the best quality/price graphics card on Aliexpress

A few months ago a version of the 4GB Radeon RX 480 became quite popular on Aliexpress and was on sale for $60. Although the vendors tried to indicate otherwise, these were graphics cards that had been used for mining, but still had a lot to offer in the world of second-hand gaming.

These cards, which can now be found at almost twice the price, still have very good performance, but many of those who bought them found a problem: the bios they came with was mining, which caused numerous crashes in Windows, and even the possibility of installing it.

Fortunately, this card comes with double bios, which means that with a button on the board you can select between two bios that they bring. In case none of the bios offers you good results, you can download the following one

Bios for XFX Radeon RX 480 4GB

This is the original, which will not give any problem, and even allows you to overclock to put the CPU clock at 1366Mhz without any problem in games.

To install it I recommend the Atiflash program, which can be downloaded from the developer’s website, TechPowerUP

10 Popular Google Web Font Pairings

Companion font selection is never an easy task for web designers. Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. If you are having trouble putting together a good combination of font of body and header for your website, or just want a little nudge in the right direction, here are ten popular combinations that look amazing together.

Work Sans y Roboto

Trabajo Sans y Roboto

These two fonts get along wonderfully. Work Sans is a font specifically designed to be used in large and medium sizes. And while its wide letter spacing makes it unsuitable as a body font, it’s perfect for headings. Meanwhile, Roboto was designed to look natural and readable. It is an extremely popular and practical font, which pairs well with the bold yet elegant look of Work Sans.

Source Serif Pro and Source Sans Pro

Fuente Serif Pro y Fuente Sans Pro

Looking for something a little more sophisticated? These two fonts were created in the same project to complement each other. Source Serif Pro will add a touch of style to your headings, while Source Sans Pro, built with user interfaces in mind, offers a streamlined, easy-to-read experience.

Playfair Display and Montserrat

Playfair Display y Montserrat

Playfair Display was made with the traditional typefaces of the late 18th century in mind. As a display font, it looks best in your headers, where it will add an elegant and timeless look to your website. And fused with the source of the body of Montserrat, inspired by the signs of the early twentieth century in Buenos Aires, it will achieve a surprisingly synergistic combination.

Poppins and Raleway

Poppins y Raleway

Poppins is a nice geometric font based on circles and curves. It works well as a header and body font due to its versatile and beautiful design. Raleway, meanwhile, is actually designed as an oversized font. Despite this, it works very well as a body font with Poppins. Test it; You will be surprised at this unlikely combo!

Libre Baskerville and Lato

Libre Baskerville y Lato

These two fonts work together because they contrast well. Libre Baskerville is a tall, elegant serif font, while Lato is a sans serif, modern and is designed to provide a warm and friendly feeling. Both will give your site a lot of personality.

Merriweather and Open Sans

Merriweather y Open Sans

The ever popular Open Sans pairs fantastically with the nice and friendly Merriweather. The latter’s bold, broad look makes it a great heading font, while Open Sans’s simple, neutral design will make reading long passages easy on the eyes.

Space Mono and Muli

Mono espacial y muli

Mono spaced fonts are somewhat unpopular due to their illegibility in body text. However, Space Mono can be a great header, especially if you want to give your site a “tech” feel, perfect for a web developer. Combine it with minimalist Muli and you will have an outstanding set of fonts.

Espectral and rubik

Espectral y rubik

The beauty of Spectral and the simple, round design of Rubik’s come together to make an enchanting combo. With Spectral as the display source, visitors will be instantly drawn to the light and elegant design, and Rubik will keep them there with its smooth appearance.

Oswald and Noto Sans

Oswald y Noto Sans

Based on alternative gothic fonts, Oswald is tall, bold and condensed, perfectly suited to displaying text. Noto Sans was made specifically for compatibility. Cover more than 30 scripts! If your site uses a non-English alphabet, look at this combo.

Ubuntu and Lora

Ubuntu y Lora

This is another font set that works because of the contrast. Ubuntu is a versatile sans serif font that looks particularly nice at a large header size, while Lora has a calligraphy precious . Such fonts are usually not suitable as body text, but Lora is polished enough to be readable while still giving off that distinguished air.

Combining the best sources

Finding fonts that work well together is an art in itself. It’s important that your header and body fonts are compatible, as choosing the right ones will lead to a more harmonious design. These ten font combos are a great place to start.

And best of all, with Google Fonts, they’re all free and easy to import onto your site. Start using your favorite combo in your current project right away!


10 WordPress wp-config codes to improve your website

The WordPress admin makes it easy to manage settings without touching a line of code. These basic configuration settings are stored in the wp-options table within the database. But, WordPress also has a separate configuration file, called wp-config.php, which can be used for other customizations.

Wp-config is the file where your custom hosting details (database name, database host, etc.) are saved when you install a self-hosted WordPress site. You can also add other configuration options to this file, with which you can enable or disable features such as debugging, caching, multisite, SSL login, automatic updates, and many others.

Locate and edit wp-config

When you download WordPress, the wp-config.php file is not yet present inside the installation folder. However, there is a file called wp-config-sample.php that you need to copy and rename wp-config.php. Then you need to add your basic connection details (database name, database username, database password, hostname, security keys) to this file.

If your hosting provider uses the Softaculous auto-installer (most do), this process is automated for you and you will find wp-config.php a
wp-config-sample.php file and a file in your root folder when you connect to your server via FTP.

Note that the configuration order is important, so don’t rearrange them. When editing the wp-config file, always use a code editor such as Sublime Text, Atom, Notepad++, Visual Studio Code, or TextMate. Word processors (Microsoft Office, Google Docs, LibreOffice, etc.) will damage your file, never use them to edit code files.

Settings saved in wp-config override the database, in case the same type of configuration is present in both (eg home URL)

Where to put the code snippets

In this article, you can find 20 code snippets that you can use to customize your wp-config.php file.

Most of these configuration options do not exist in wp-config by default. If you want to use them, you need to add them under the initial General menu. However, you can also configure these URLs in the wp-config file.

Defining the WP_SITEURL and WP_HOME constants in the wp-config file has two benefits:

  1. It can save lives if you are unable to access your admin area for any reason.
  2. can reduce the number of calls to the database while your site is loading (since wp-config overrides the options saved in the database)

WP_SITEURL specifies the URL with which users can access your site, while WP_HOME defines the root of your WP installation. If you installed WordPress in your root folder (this is the default) they take the same value.

# Specifies site URL
define('WP_SITEURL', ''); 
# Specifies home URL (the root of the WP install)
define('WP_HOME', '');

Empty the trash after a certain time

You can have WordPress automatically empty your trash after a certain number of dates. The smallest value of this constant is 0, in this case it disables the trash can function.

# Empties trash after 7 days
define( 'EMPTY_TRASH_DAYS', 7 );

Enable WordPress Multisite

By adding the WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE constant to your wp-config file, you can enable the WordPress multisite feature which allows you to create a network of WP sites.

# Turns on WordPress Multisite
define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );

Redirect non-existing subdomains and subfolders

Sometimes visitors type a non-existent subdomain or subfolder in the URL bar. You can redirect these users to another page of your domain, for example to the home page with the help of the NOBLOGREDIRECTconstante

# Redirects non-existing subdomains and subfolders to homepage

Manage Post Revisions

WordPress has a built-in version control system, which means it saves all subsequent revisions you create. A frequently edited post can have 25-30 revisions which can take up a lot of database space after a while.

With the WP_POST_REVISIONS constant, you can maximize the number of subsequent checks or disable the feature altogether.

# Completely disables post revision
define( 'WP_POST_REVISIONS', false ); 
# Allows maximum 5 post revisions
define( 'WP_POST_REVISIONS', 5 );

Enable built-in database optimization

WordPress has a built-in database optimization feature that you can activate by adding the following line to the wp-config.

I wrote in detail about how this tool works in this article. The most important thing to note is that the database optimization screen is available to anyone (even non-logged-in visitors). Enable the feature only for the length of time you want to run the optimization tool, then don’t forget to disable it.

# Turns on database optimization feature
define( 'WP_ALLOW_REPAIR', true );

Turn off automatic updates

WordPress runs automatic background updates by default for minor versions and translation files.

You can turn this feature on and off by setting the values of the constants AUTOMATIC_UPDATER_DISABLED (for all updates) and WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE (for major updates) according to the following rules:

# Disables all automatic updates
# Disables all core updates
define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false ); 
# Enables all core updates, including minor and major releases
define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', true ); 
# Enables core updates only for minor releases (default)
define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', 'minor' );

Increase PHP memory limit

Sometimes you may want to increase the PHP memory limit that your hosting provider has allocated to your site, especially if you get the dreaded “Allowed memory size of xxxxxx bytes exhausted” message. To do this, use  WP_MEMORY_LIMIT for the website and WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT for the administration area.

Note that some hosts do not allow you to manually increase the memory limit; in this case, contact them and ask them to do it for you.

# Sets memory limit for the website
define( 'WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '96M' ); 
# Sets memory limit for the admin area
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M' );

Disable unfiltered HTML

Although low-level users (subscribers, contributors, authors) cannot post unfiltered HTML to WordPress, editors and admins can.

By adding the following line of code to your wp-config file, you can increase security by preventing high-level users from posting unfiltered HTML.

# Disables unfiltered HTML for admins and editors

Control WordPress via the command line with WP-CLI

Even on a standard installation, WordPress is a highly visual platform. That not only makes it easy to create content, but also maintain the site. With just a few clicks, you can install a plugin, run software updates, and modify any number of settings.

However, there are situations where the visual interface can get in the way. For example, running large imports or other memory-intensive tasks can cause problems on slower servers. Also, you don’t always get the level of fine-grain control that might be needed.

For those who want more control and the ability to perform complex tasks, WP-CLI might be just what you’re looking for.

What is WP-CLI?

WP-CLI is a command line interface for WordPress. It offers the ability to maintain almost every aspect of your WordPress website without the need to log in to the control panel.

Like WordPress, WP-CLI is free software. To use it, you must first install it on your remote server or local machine. From there, you can put the power of the command line to work for your site.

But before you get too excited, a warning. This is a highly powerful (and potentially dangerous) tool.  Make a mistake and you may not recover easily. Therefore, it is recommended that you set up a test site and use it to learn some of the basic commands. Once you feel comfortable, you can start using it on your production sites.

If you’re not very familiar with the command line, WP-CLI can seem a bit overwhelming. Fortunately, there is a lot of documentation available. You’ll first want to check out the fantastic Quick Start Guide to help get you up and running.

What does?

A lot! WP-CLI aims to be a complete alternative to the control panel, so all the basics are covered. For example, you can install new plugins, update your existing installation, create a new WordPress installation, or manage a multisite network.

But it goes beyond daily maintenance. There are some commands built into WP-CLI that aren’t even available in the dashboard (at least, not without installing a plugin).

One of the most powerful features included is the ability to perform a search and replace within the database. This could be used, for example, to replace the development URL of a site with the production version during launch.

Search of $ wp : reemplace '' '' - dry - run  

The first URL above is what we are looking for ( and the second is what we want to replace it with (

Also note the --dry-run argument at the end of the command. This will allow you to see the results of a search and replace without making any changes to the database. Once you’re sure what the result will be, you can run it again, this time without including the argument. Again, check the documentation to make sure you’re not doing something you shouldn’t.

Then there is the ability to create your own custom commands. This allows WP-CLI to perform tasks related to a third-party plugin, theme, or other functionality that you have created.

Other tasks, such as creating child themes, theme editor blocks,  Gutenberg or the startup code for a custom plugin, are possible through the  wp scaffold command.

However, we are really just scratching the surface of what this tool is capable of.

Powerful and Extendable

One of the coolest things about WP-CLI is that there are no real limits to what you can do with it. While you may only want to use it to handle basic tasks, you could also theoretically add functionality for your own niche use cases. This could benefit everything from small sites to businesses.

Of course, the command line isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Having recently been introduced to WP-CLI, I was quite concerned about using it. But once you get down to command syntax (and learn from a few mistakes), you might get more comfortable over time.

So if you want to do even more with WordPress, take a look at WP-CLI. It could become the next great addition to your developer’s toolbox.
