Getting the Correct Max Date

After I added the dynamic search feature to my “To The Moon” 🚀 Coin Calculator, I noticed that the price of BitCoin (BTC) was not increasing. I knew that it was over USD$9,000 all day, but it was still showing a price just about USD$8,000. When I ran the query in the MySQL database, I noticed that it was pulling back the correct date, but not the correct price. QUERY FAIL!! So, it was off to figure out why my query wasn’t working. To start, I was using the MAX() function to retrieve the latest date added to the table. Continue reading Getting the Correct Max Date

Dynamic Search with PHP, jQuery and AutoComplete

After I created a Cron job using EasyCron to populate my cryptocurrency coin history tables, my next step was to create the capability to search through the 500 coins I had in the database.  The To The Moon! Coin Calculator displays the Top 50 coins by market capitalization rank by default. The search would narrow it down to one coin. I am hoping, that in the next phase, that when the user selects one coin they will get more information than the list of 50. Since I want to prevent errors in retrieving the one coin, the best method is Continue reading Dynamic Search with PHP, jQuery and AutoComplete

Easy to Use EasyCron

I created my first cron job using EasyCron and it was Easy. As part of the second phase of my To The Moon! Coin Calculator, I needed to populate my database with information on a scheduled basis. Since I am using a hosting service that doesn’t have a schedule jobs feature, I looked to a third party app to get it done. EasyCron allows for anyone to create simple cron jobs for free or as a paid service, if you want more functionality. For my needs, the free service works well. I only plan on running my cron job 3 Continue reading Easy to Use EasyCron

“To The Moon” 🚀Coin Calculator

Finished the First Version of the Calculator A few weeks ago, I wrote an article on Calculating “To The Moon” 🚀 as a thought process based on something that @dragosroua posted. A few days ago, I posted Scientific Proof that To The Moon Caused BitCoin Crash!, in which I used the previous article and an article from @edje to “prove” that my calculations were correct based on his theory of anti-Moon gravitational issues with cryptocurrency. When I was writing the article Air Drop – Success!, I used my calculation to figure out when IOSToken would go “To The Moon” and Continue reading “To The Moon” 🚀Coin Calculator

Chart js and the Tool Tip

I assume that every developer likes to know how the things that they make are being used by those who use it, to some extent. In the mobile app world, it isn’t the best idea to track every move the user makes, but you could do it, if you plan on making your customers a little annoyed with you. At a minimum app developers can track the number of downloads for the app through statistics provided by the app vendor. This is extremely important if the app brings in money and you want to verify with the vendor that you Continue reading Chart js and the Tool Tip

Custom Category Icons

I mentioned in my new template post that I might add back the Category images to the posts. Well, I thought I would give it a try, but the first step was to see if something existed in the WordPress Plugin world.  There were a few options, but they either only posted the images on the Category template page or only did one image per post.  And all methods required modifying the template files. So, no go on that, time to re-add my original hack. I had previously created a way to pull up the Category description and image in Continue reading Custom Category Icons
