If you are hosting Yii behind a reverse proxy, for example nginx, and you are having issues with your logs showing the proxies IP, or the urls being created arn't being created for SSL because your SSL certs are located on your reverse proxy instead of the Yii server, this code may be able to help you. I placed them in the very top of Yii's entry script, index.php
Changing the way a CGridView is rendered from the configuration file, or through behaviors specified at the moment it is used, is handy to extend a CGridView without creating tons of different classes for it.

If you're working a lot with extensions you often stumble upon problems, when you want to include them into your custom web application, like hardcoded or absolute path aliases or classes extended from core application components, which implement addiditonal features.
The article Fixing extensions without modifying their code reminded me of another patching technique that I used. My conviction and a hard look on the web had led me to an article Redefine PHP class methods or class giving me a head start to do what I wanted: patching third party code without touching the original to allow easy upgrades.
When using CListView to display multiple views next to each other, we can use the $index variable inside the viewFile to achieve this. As far as i know there is no extension or out-of-the-box functionality for this, so we need to apply a little hack:
When you're filling up a form of a CActiveRecord (using CActiveForm for example), usually you'll construct your code so that in case of validation error you'll get back the form with the error displayed back to you, typically when CActiveForm.errorSummary() is used. This is how its done by Gii.
