USB WIFI for Mac OS :: TP-LINK TP-WL823N

A primary thing you have to keep in mind when you change the hardware for hackintosh is WIFI and ethernet adapters comparability with Mac OS. Usually many of related hardware is incompatible and need to be replaced. Some platforms may have a whitelist and you can't replace WIFI without BIOS modification. Some replacements need to do difficult DSDT patches.

For example, I want to talk you about TP-LINK TP-WL-823N USB WIFI adapter thats have official Mac OS software available for download from official web-site and perfectly working on Mac OS 10.13.5.

I buy this dongle for less than 10$ and just install package with hardware WIFI kexts and it works! You can find other supported WIFI dongles WL series with kexts for Mac OS in a computer shop or digital markets.

For test I use my hackintosh based on ASUS K541UV with installed Mac OS High Sierra.

Write me what do you think about pagination modes I like to add in preferences:

  • Pager mode: auto fetch when scroll to end or classic with links and numbers(I'd like classic). Fetch pagination should be added if I can read your comments about it.
  • If you need option in preferences for limiting nodes on pagination segments - please tell me. Now it available in config php and by default limits to 5 nodes per page.

Also fixed fetch requests for Chrome and FireFox. This browsers won't execute query selectors like :not(a[target="_blank"]). Now all dynamics on sites used RevolveR CMS should works like a charm.

RevolveR CMS v1.1.9 :: improved captcha

Today every second website affected spammer bots that can reads graphics data from pattern image and automatically send post data. There are many completed solutions and services fro secure a websites but I steel create own Captcha.

RevolveR captcha more simple and helpful because it used pure javascript canvas render of captcha pattern that can't be read for now. It is require to repeat pattern with users draw.

I have create some obstacles for analyzing captcha generation data that goes from secure route via fetch request on every document update. This data is cryptic to spammer robots because them won't execute javascript. This data is low crypted with randomizing pattern pixels coordinates. Adds complexity and the presence of Roman numerals and shuffling data with latin alphabet.

This encryption simple and fast. It's not to brake client and does not provide the possibility of bulkheads. With RevolveR CMS not dependencies needed to use RevolveR Captcha. It was integrated in core.

Maybe later, when I have to create fully randomized patterns I may to create a new Captcha service that more user-friendly end fast than Google services to allow other CMS users use this Captcha.

RevolveR CMS v.1.1.8 :: content moderations added

This update have a critical priority and improves content management on sites used RevolveR CMS. Added content moderation options for nodes and comments.

For now if user inside a role Admin or Writer there are allow to modify published propertie for comment and nodes. By default comments from anon users are not published without moderation, new nodes not published by default. That allows you to avoid spammers and errors.

Read carefully how to update RevolveR CMS from previous version 1.1.7. First you have to execute two MySQL queries to add insufficient fields in database:

  • alter table revolver__nodes add field_published int after field_time idea;
  • alter table revolver__comments add field_published int after field_category;

Second, you have to replace all files on server from repository. Third, you enjoy!
