Google Introduces People Cards (Add me to Search )

Hello Guys,

We are here with another latest news from tech Giant Google. for people who want to be found online more easily, on Google Search at least, you don’t really need to be a celebrity. Google has launched "People Cards", which are virtual visiting cards, that will help users pop up faster on searches.

In this Update, users can create a virtual visiting card on Search and highlight information like their Job Profile, existing website, social profiles, location, etc, and even a phone number and email address if they want - basically, anything you want others to know about you, publicly, goes on the card.

What are People Cards?

People cards are a new update launched by google in which a user can create a virtual visiting card

People Cards are meant to help people like influencers, entrepreneurs, freelancers, self-employed people, people looking for jobs, etc, all those who want and need to be more ‘easily discovered’. Starting today itself, users in India can create their own People Cards and can also see other people’s cards on their smartphones.

This feature is only available on Google Search on your smartphones for now and its is not available on the web. Cards are also only available in English for now, more language support will be rolled out over time.

How to create People Cards?

1. Creating a People Card is very simple. You need to be signed in to your Google account before you begin.

2. You can then search for your name on Google Search or type in - “Add me to Search”. or click on the link - Add Me to Search  Or People Cards 

3. The very first prompt you will get is to add yourself to Google Search and you can go ahead from there to creating your card. (like below)

4. Choose an image (if you want), add a description, add links to your websites and social profiles, and also a phone number and email ID (again, if you want). And that’s it. You are good to go.

Note -  Each user is allowed only one People Card and this card must be authenticated with the user’s Google account and a unique phone number. (Google )

How are these People Cards protected?

Google has put in a bunch of controls and protections in place to ensure correct and reliable information is on the cards and also to protect users from abusive and offensive content.

Each user is allowed only one People Card and this card must be authenticated with the user’s Google account and a unique phone number. Users will also have complete control of the information on their cards and can remove/delete anything at any time. You can also opt-out of the experience entirely - this will stop your card from showing up in search.

There is also a feedback button available on cards that can be used to report low-quality information or a card that might have been created by an impersonator.

[Solved 2020] “Table Prefix” must not be empty - WordPress Error

By // 9 comments:
Table Prefix” must not be empty

Hello Guys, you are here because you were installing WordPress via clean install method and on the 2nd step of the installation, you found an error that “Table Prefix” must not be empty”.

This is Rahul from The Tech Trackers and I encountered same error while installing WordPress for my client and I googled so much but didn’t find any solution to above problem. So, I rolled up my sleeves and dive deep into it and now we got the solution to the above error. I would like to share that solution with you guys.

So, read and follow below mentioned steps and if you have any questions and queries let me know in the comments section below.

You must have received above error while filling your database details.

Table Prefix” must not be empty.

In a normal case when you fill database details in the above form and hit submit then WordPress fill those details in wp-config.php file but, here we are getting an error so now we going to do this process manually. For that after getting “Table Prefix” must not be empty Error you have to open c-panel and locate wp-config-sample.php file. 

Open the sample file in an editor and edit database details (database name, username and password) manually and hit save.

Table Prefix” must not be empty
Then close sample file and rename it to wp-config.php

Once done with the rename process again go to the WordPress install screen.

Table Prefix” must not be empty

This time, once you select language, then WordPress will redirect you to welcome screen.

Where you have to fill details like site title, username and password for WordPress etc. and hit install here after clicking on install button you will get below error “Please Provide valid username” and keep coming if you choose any username.

Now, we have to skip this step as well to do that, again we have to go to C-panel and locate install.php file under wp-admin folder, Open install.php file and search for your error “Please provide a valid username” and then you will see sections like below image.

Here we have to change $error = true; to $error = false; (This will disable validation for username field on above screen)

Now, again head toward welcome screen and hit install. This will install WordPress without any user it will look something like below image.

As you can see WordPress installed on your domain, but you can’t login because there is no user created so now you have to create a user from PhpMyAdmin and assign him administrator rights.

To do that, you have to Access PhpMyAdmin from your cpanel. In PhpMyAdmin locate your database in my case, it’s “testblog2

After choosing database, click on “wp_users” there you will see an empty table like below:
Here you have to create a new user by clicking on the insert button on top ribbon as below:

After clicking on insert button you will get below fields, where you have to fill details of users like username, password, email id etc. Leave id field blank because it will get generated automatically. And while entering a password change value of a function to MD5 .

Now you have created a user via PhpMyAdmin now you can login via above details but you can’t access the dashboard for that you have to assign administrator rights to created user. 

To check your user rights head to the “wp-usermeta” table in your database. This is the table where all Meta information of user gets stored. We have to modify this table to give admin rights to created user.

To simplify this process I have created an SQL file which you have import in your database but before that you have delete above “wp-usermeta” table by going into operations section.

Now you have to download this SQL from here and open in any editor and search for “database name” and change the database name to your database name in my case it’s “testblog2” and save it.

Next step is, go to your database in PhpMyAdmin and click on import, where you have to select a downloaded SQL file and hit go. It will automatically run queries and assign administrator rights to our user.

Now try logging in, this time you will be successfully redirected to the WordPress dashboard.

That’s it! You have successfully installed WordPress by skipping  “Table Prefix” must not be empty error.

If you like this article then share your thoughts in the comment section. I would love to hear from you guys.

Thank You.
