git & Synology

Setting up Synology with git

A great article here with screenshots – How to install Git Server

Some git commands now to use:

Creating working store:
cd git_repo
mkdir project.git
cd project.git
git --bare init
cd ..
chown -R git:users project.git

Working from remote location:
git clone ssh://git@192.*.*.11/volume1/git_repo/project.git/
cd project
mkdir test
git add test
git commit -m "adding test"
git push -u origin master
git status
git pull origin master
git ls-files
git log -n 10
git help [-a]

git works best bringing in the complete project tree so break projects up where you don’t want to bring down multiple project files.

WordPress Changes – Full Categories

When using the TwentyTen theme it shows category excerpts only. To change this to full content you need to make the following change:

Find the “loop.php” file in your Theme, TwentyTen for me, search for “the_excerpt()” and replace it with “the_content()” in one place.

<?php if ( is_archive() || is_search() ) : // Only display excerpts for archives and search. ?>

<div class=”entry-summary”>

<?php the_excerpt(); ?><!– CHANGE THIS TO “the_content()” –>

This appears to be working for me.
