Is this the most expensive salad at a fast food restaurant?

I love Chick-Fil-A, delicious food and great hospitality. Plus, it’s my coworking spot near home, the Chick-Fil-A in Aliso Viejo Town Center (Aliso Viejo, California). Trying to eat healthy does cost more money, as their salad prices have gone up over the past 2 years — there’s been some Twitter chatter about the expensive chickfila salad. Here’s the cost at my hometown Chick-Fil-A:

$8.15 for a Chick-Fil-A salad (Grilled Market Salad, Asian Salad, Cobb Salad)

There was a time when the newly-launched salad cost $7.19, back in April 2013; and a petition to get the old Chick-Fil-A salads back didn’t get very far. If you were to add a drink, the total would come to easily over $10. That’s double digits for lunch. chick-fil-a-com-Salads Maybe this could be a way to hack the menu and get almost the same thing. What if you got a Chick-Fil-A Nuggets combo meal and substitute a side salad for the waffle fries? You’d still get chicken, drink, and salad, yes, though a smaller portion, and we’re trying to cut calories anyways, so that’d be copacetic. Let’s do the math on this:

$6.39 Meal-Nugg 8ct combo with medium drink
$0.00 substitute cole slaw for waffle fries
$0.51 tax

$6.90 total

That’s for a cole slaw substitute, which is not the same as a side salad. Here’s what a side salad substitute came to:

$6.39 Meal-Nugg 8ct combo with medium drink
$1.06 substitute side salad for waffle fries
$0.56 tax

$8.01 total ~ ht: @jaykranda

#whoop There it is. Under $9.00 for a chicken, salad, and drink at Chick-Fil-A.

2 crucial steps to increase WordPress upload file size on Namecheap

Just discovered it takes 2 particular steps to change the WordPress settings on Namecheap’s web hosting, and it took me a while to find the answer. Hopefully this blog post will make it easier for you to find the answer here. By default, Namecheap allows for a maximum upload file size of 32MB.

Step #1 = create and edit a custom php.ini for your WordPress self-install

How to edit php.ini on shared servers

And in that php.ini, either modify or add these lines (for 64MB max file upload size):

post_max_size 64M
upload_max_filesize 64M

Step #2 = update the .htaccess file to use that custom php.ini you just updated

SuPHP directive for php.ini on shared servers

But, depending on your cPanel configuration (maybe?), you may not be able to view/edit a .htaccess file in the cPanel File Manager. I had to view/edit my .htaccess file via FTP. (cf. Web Hosting Tutorial: Uploading files for your website using FTP)
