WordPress is the most popular content management system for developing websites and blogs. It provides a multi-user platform with simple interface that anyone can use. Sometimes you could mess up your whole site, while trying out new features, or while customizing the themes.
If things get totally out of hand, you will have to reset your whole website, which means you have to reinstall WordPress altogether. The good news is that with the help of WP Reset, you can reset WordPress websites in the quickest and most convenient ways possible.
WP Reset is a WordPress plugin that allows users to reset their pages completely, without having to reinstall WordPress. The Croatian company Web Factory Ltd that has made this plugin has specifically designed this to help on-developers use WordPress easily.
How does the WP reset plugin work?
This plugin can be installed and activated easily by the steps mentioned below.
- Step 1: Go to the WP Reset plugin’s page and download it. You can install the plugin by going to wp-admin then plugins and add new.
- Step 2: In wp-admin, click on tools where you get a WP reset option.
- Step 3: Click on that option and read all the instructions provided carefully to understand what will be deleted and what will not. Also, remember that you cannot undo the reset.
- Step 4: You have to type in the action word “reset” and press the Reset WordPress button.
What will happen to the user who is currently logged in?
If your WordPress page has a few different users installed with a few different roles, then when you reset your page, all other users and their identifications get deleted except for an admin account. You will have to again log in and log out of the current user who is logged in.
To find the correct admin ID, you can initially use a single admin ID and give the other users other roles. In this way, you will not forget the ID.
How to use the plugin?
When you click on tools, you will find a new menu option after you have installed the plugin. If you want to reset, then you can clock on it and you will see numerous options to take action. For example, you can check the box for only resetting the theme, or the other plugins, or the content, etc.
When can you use this plugin?
This plugin is helpful if you want to develop your WordPress page and want to try different settings. It is more of a development tool than a plugin. You can revert to any of the changes instead of having to manually reset the whole page every time.
The above-mentioned information shows how this plugin can make your WordPress use easier and quicker.
If you are reluctant about resetting your entire website, you could consider the WP redirect option. It can help in regaining the traffic from your existing web pages or posts, before removing them completely.
Facebook’s virtual reality push is about data, not gaming
Facebook has announced the latest version of its successful standalone virtual reality (VR) headset, the Oculus Quest 2. The new device packs more computing power and a sharper screen than its predecessor, and is also US$100 cheaper.
The Oculus Quest 2 is the latest step in Facebook’s long-term strategy of making VR more accessible and popular. Facebook recently brought all its VR work under the umbrella of Facebook Reality Labs, it has announced new applications like the Infinite Office VR workplace, and will also require a Facebook login for future Oculus devices.
The compulsory link to Facebook has many consumers concerned, considering the social media giant’s chequered history with privacy and data. VR and its cousin, augmented reality (AR), are perhaps the most data-extractive digital sensors we’re likely to invite into our homes in the next decade.
Why does Facebook make virtual reality headsets?
Facebook acquired VR company Oculus in 2014 for an estimated US$2.3 billion. But where Oculus originally aimed at gamers, Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg wants VR for social media.
At the same event last year, Zuckerberg said Facebook sees VR as a pathway to a new kind of “social computing platform” using the enhanced feeling of “presence” that VR affords. For Facebook, the introduction of VR-based computing will be like the leap from text-based command line interfaces to the graphical user interfaces we use today.
This may well be right. VR affords a strong feeling of embodied presence that offers new possibilities for entertainment, training, learning and connecting with others at a distance.
But if the VR future is the one Facebook is “working in the lab” on, it will function via the company’s existing social computing platform and business model of extracting data to deliver targeted advertisements.
Virtual reality collects real data
A VR headset collects data about the user, but also about the outside world. This is one of the key ethical issues of emerging “mixed reality” technologies.
As American VR researcher Jeremy Bailenson has written:
…commercial VR systems typically track body movements 90 times per second to display the scene appropriately, and high-end systems record 18 types of movements across the head and hands. Consequently, spending 20 minutes in a VR simulation leaves just under 2 million unique recordings of body language.
The way you move your body can be used to identify you, like a fingerprint, so everything you do in VR could be traced back to your individual identity.
Facebook’s Oculus Quest headsets also use outward-facing cameras to track and map their surroundings.
In late 2019 Facebook said they “don’t collect and store images or 3D maps of your environment on our servers today”. Note the word today, which tech journalist Ben Lang notes makes clear the company is not ruling out anything in the future.
Virtual reality leads to augmented reality
Facebook wants to collect this data to facilitate its plans for augmented reality (AR).
Where VR takes a user to a fully virtual environment, AR combines virtual elements with our real surroundings.
Last year Facebook unveiled the Live Maps application, a vision of an expansive surveillance apparatus presumably powered by AR glasses and data collected from Oculus Insight. Live Maps will provide many minor conveniences for Facebook users, like letting you know you’ve left your keys on the coffee table.
Now Facebook have announced their first steps towards making this a reality: Project Aria. This will involve people wearing glasses-like sensors around Seattle and the San Francisco Bay area, to collect the data to build what Wired co-founder Kevin Kelly calls “the mirrorworld”, the next big tech platform.
People are rightly concerned about the ethical implications of this kind of data extraction. Alongside Project Aria, Facebook launched its Responsible Innovation Principles page, and they’re already quick to emphasise that faces and license plates will be blurred in this data collection.
As we have argued elsewhere, framing questions about VR and AR surveillance in terms of individual privacy suits companies like Facebook very well. That’s because their previous failings are actually in the (un)ethical use of data (as in the case of Cambridge Analytica) and their asymmetric platform power.
We need more than just ‘tech ethics’
Groups like the XR Safety Initiative recognise these emerging issues, and are beginning work on standards, guidelines and privacy frameworks to shape VR and AR development.
Many emerging technologies encounter what is known as the Collingridge problem: it is hard to predict the various impacts of a technology until it is extensively developed and widely used, but by then it is almost impossible to control or change.
We see this playing out right now, in efforts to regulate Google and Facebook’s power over news media.
As David Watts argues, big tech designs its own rules of ethics to avoid scrutiny and accountability:
Feelgood, high-level data ethics principles are not fit for the purpose of regulating big tech … The harms linked to big tech can only be addressed by proper regulation.
What might regulation of Facebook’s VR look like? Germany offers one such response – their antitrust regulations have resulted in Facebook withdrawing the headset from sale. We can only hope the technology doesn’t become too entrenched to be changed, or challenged.
But regulation has not always stopped Facebook in the past, who paid out US$550 million to settle a lawsuit for breaching biometric privacy laws. In the multi-billion dollar world of big-tech, it’s all a cost of doing business.
Another question we might ask ourselves is whether Facebook’s virtual-reality future and others like it really need to exist. Maybe there are other ways to avoid forgetting your keys.
Latest technology has increased its need and actions in cranes control
It is really very important that we put everything very nicely in an appropriately slot and blocks. However the actual challenge comes in your way when it is more than the weight that you can afford to carry.
At your personal space you usually perform all the heavy tasks, also if you feel like this is beyond your expectations as to pick the item you always ask for help by increasing the number of labor or helping hand as to make the work handy. You can also visualize a live example in big stores or warehouses like metro, big Bazar, Wallmart and many more. Now carrying not just the heavy material but the bulky one is extremely too heavy to carry. Now there are number of equipments that always help as to carry heavy and bulky items and the amazing part that these equipments can easily be handled with the help of remote controls and hands free access. A very live and active example is Wireless remote controls for cranes that are coming with latest modifications and easy to divert and hold different functions that help in not just carrying heavy material but also setting and aligning at the right place.
Convenient and comfortable
It is not that easy to easily adjust and manage these heavy machineries or equipments just through remote but the usages made humans life more convenient and comfortable. Also on the other hand it is equally important as to learn and manage using these machines with remote just not for the technical or weight issues but also because of accessing items alignment and many other usages.
Consist of Transmitter
These machines are monitored and controlled through remote that totally depends on the two major parts which includes transmitting information and the other that receives the command or we can say it comprises of transmitter that is transportable and receiver. There are many aspects that make these controls more refine and the companies that maintain the quality of the product ensures DSL busbars shall be used that can easily help in accommodating 60 -400 amperes. In crane and heavy machineries these DSL supplies refers to the bars with iron that help in supporting insulators and assist with power supply to overhead cranes that work efficiently and is a new defined technology as to help and support manpower.
Just the way there is button on the remote that develops control and conveys to receiver as to decode and activates the signals available on the EOT crane panel. With more improvisation, these companies are delivering the best of the products with best and latest features to communicate and support cranes.
