Embed a Google Folder in Populr.me
We’ve had a few people who became big fans of populr.me. They’re also using Google Docs/Drive and since I like things to blend . . . here’s how you embed a Google Drive folder into populr.me. The example is here if you want to check it out.
Getting That iFrame Stuff
I started to write directions on how to do this but just built a little tool instead.
Image from page 148 of “The Phynodderree, and other legends of the Isle of Man” (1882) flickr photo by Internet Archive Book Images shared with no copyright restriction (Flickr Commons) I do really enjoy being able to make stuff. Even if it’s not perfect. It’s really just so much fun. Mark Luetke wrote a really nice pluginTWO YEARS AGO!!! That means I haven’t had any technology help in roughly two years. Man. for us when he was here that helped faculty setup mother blogs. It requires FeedWordPress (FWP) to be active to work. This morning I had a faculty member who set everything up correctly except for FWP. It’s happened a few other times so I figured I’d do something about it. I’d seen plugins that warn you if you don’t have a required plugin working so I went that route first. The code below was lifted straight from this stackoverflow response and set to look for FWP. It was decent and functional but I felt like I could make the notification better which led down a winding road. Modal Popup This code is straight from this codepen.Noting a theme here?

Mass Storage: Press Wireless and Shutter. While continuing to hold these buttons, plug THETA into computer with USB cable. Camera will be powered off. via this It appears this no longer works on Macs running an updated OS. I never found one that worked . . . but supposedly it does on older version. I tried a number of things on various machines here but even diskutil list in terminal wasn’t seeing the Ricoh.

There seems to be a pretty basic assumption that you only want to take video in the camera and upload it via their app. Much like the GoPro, it’s hard to tell what’s going on in the Ricoh via the device itself. It tells you it’s on, wi-fi is up etc. but storage remaining and a few other things that might matter are not apparent. Get Your Video & Cleanse the Camera To get the content to your phone and remove it from the camera, you’ll need to go […]
