Run script at start

It takes a few steps to run a script at bootup in Linux. See the example below for starting rTorrent at boottime.

sudo -s
mv /etc/init.d/

After that you only need to make the script runnable and insert it into update-rc.d.

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/
cd /etc/init.d/
sudo update-rc.d defaults

#now you can start it as a service by using
/etc/init.d/ start

Linking Without Using Permalinks

There are two ways to make internal links from one content page to another in WordPress. One uses permalinks and one does not. If you are not using Permalinks, how do you link to your pages, posts, and categories?

Using the numeric values found in the ID column of the Posts, Categories, and Pages Administration, you can create links as follows.


To link to a Post, find the ID of the target post on the Posts administration panel, and insert it in place of the '123' in this link:

<a href="index.php?p=123">Post Title</a>


To link to a Category, find the ID of the target Category on the Categories administration panel, and insert it in place of the '7' in this link:

<a href="index.php?cat=7">Category Title</a>


To link to a Page, find the ID of the target Page on the Pages administration panel, and insert it in place of the '42' in this link:

<a href="index.php?page_id=42">Page title</a>
