Content Management

Content management (CM) is a set of processes and technologies that supports the collection, managing, and publishing of information in any form or medium. When stored and accessed via computers, this information may be more specifically referred to as digital content, or simply as content. Digital content may take the form of text (such as electronic documents), multimedia files (such as audio or video files), or any other file type that follows a content lifecycle requiring management.

I’ll try to make this short and succinct.  I have a Drupal 8 theme that I purchased (I won't name names) and all was good for the first month but then I noticed that whenever I made system changes to the site I would get errors like this (especially when I did a configuration Import):

Configuration block.block.footer depends on the ntv_block_background module that will not be installed after import.

This specific module does not exist, that I can find, but I believe that it is a module that the developer used during development and did not uninstall it correctly when he decided he did not want to use it anymore.  So the data that I acquired from the theme’s SQL was bad to begin with.  I have tried contacting the original author but I get no reply and have given up on that channel.

Digging Deeper: In the SQL database under the Config table is a data blob that contains references to this module in about 63 different data blobs.  a relevant section of the data looks like this:


My Question: There is too many references to remove by hand, Is there a utility (drush or other) to remove meta-data from a module that I no longer have access to and purge the unused data so that it does not …

I would like to change my layered navigation so users can only selected 1 item per drop down.
as a bonus, I would like it to behave like old style ajax menus
I have 4 different drop down menus in my layered navigation and they are all attributes. Ideally, the first drop down would cause the second drop down to populate, the second -> populate third drop down, the third -> populate fourth drop down. Is it possible to modify my layered navigation to behave this way? What files and functions could i modify to accomplish this?
hi hope you are well.

i have a customer who wants me to lock down his apple devices, 3 phones and 4 ipads.

he wants me to prevent him from being able to access certain types of adult websites and proxy sure you can guess what i mean.

i was planning to use Trend iwsaas, which creates a vpn , which is really good at this kind of thing, unfortunately, he can simply turn it off in settings, and there seems to be no way to prevent him from doing this.  iwsaas can even block keywords in url's , enforce google safe search etc. so i can put "proxy" and "vpn" in the blocked keywords list, as well as actual web addresses.  

im looking into mdm but all i can seem to find are very expensive products for enterprise.

ideally id like to be able to configure and maintain this remotely or over the phone because he is geographically an hour or so away from me.

anybody got any ideas as to what i can do please?

I'm a bit of a newbie with Umbraco and simply want to put iFrames in. I followed what seems to be a popular XSLT solution which permits me to add some XSLT code which is then used to create a macro:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

I have a Juniper SSG 140 with the latest firmware.  With using the intergrated (SurfControl) content filtering some users have discovered they can bypass the filter simply by accessing the site using https.  So it blocks but allows  I have both http & https selected as the policy service that this is to be applied to but it will not block any https sites in any of my categories or in my blocked sites list.  Does anyone know how to block both http and https sites with Juniper's intergrates web content filter?

Looking for a solution (cheap) to count inventory the fastest way possible.  Currently we have no scan guns or wifi in the warehouse.  We house at least 100,000 items.  What I would like is a scan gun that I can load an excel worksheet that has columns for our Item# (Barcode data), Description, Qty and fill ins for bin locations so pickers can scan what's there and it will save to the spreadsheet in the gun.  Added feature would be a fill in line for bin location so future picking would be easier for our pickers.

I can then download the spreadsheet and reconcile with our QB inventory.

Any advice Experts?

I just downloaded VLC media player.  When I click an mp4 file it wants to know what program to use.  I want it to use VLC but I don't know where it is and a search on VLC comes up empty.  If it's in Program files it's probably under the developer's name and I don't know that.  Without a Properties option; when I right click the apps icon, I can't find it in Explorer.

drawing these diagrams that the narrative is incomplete, make up reasonable explanations
to complete the story. Supply these extra explanations along with the diagrams in a

Projects, Inc., is an engineering firm with approximately 500 engineers of different
types. The company keeps records on all employees, their skills, projects assigned,
and departments worked in. New employees are hired by the personnel manager

evaluations on each interview from the manager, the personnel manager makes the
