Need automated collection of news by keyword

I urgently need to find news services where I can subscribe and get news relating to CoronaVirus. Know of any?

I also know that Yahoo! News allows me to pick a keyword. Know of any others?

Lastly, for the longer term, I plan to invest some development energy into build more automated tools, which I assume would use Artificial Intelligence.

Any such tools or technologies come to mind?

Thanks

What devices/platforms are the leaders for e-books?

I imaging iPhone/Android/Bluetooth would be a popular way to list to an e-book, sine lots of people listen in the car.

But, what platforms would I use to reach this market? Is that iTunes? Amazon Audible.com?

Does Kindle support Bluetooth?

Please provide a high level view of e-books, the hardware and the services which can reach the largest parts of the market.

Thanks

Need advice on making an audio book

I have a book I self-published, which is not selling due to people no longer wanting the weight of a book. So, I would make this into an audio book.

What approach is ideal? What audio format(s) are needed?

I would sell this on Amazon, so what audio formats do best on Amazon?

Also, my book has lots of images to them. How best to explain the contents of an image?

What other differences would cause the audio version to be different than the printed version?

Thanks.

This code is everywhere on the web, however it doesn't work.

function remove_image_zoom_support() {
    remove_theme_support( 'wc-product-gallery-zoom' );
}
add_action( 'wp', 'remove_image_zoom_support', 100 );

Open in new window

Here is an example page:

I really need to disable the Zoom on single product views. are there any Woo experts out there who've accomplished this?

So I would like to set up my Woo-commerce store to only collect real time tax rates from the following states only. If you are not in these states you do not pay tax and if you are then you pay the applicable real-time sales tax rate based on where you live in the state
 
Arizona
Colorado
Florida
Minnesota
Tennessee

What is the best way to set this up in woocommerce?

My client has a WordPress website and was using CoinBase to collect BitCoin. Unfortunately there is a problem with coinbase and we need a different solution. If the solution can also work with WooCommerce that would be great, but at least something so that a donor can click a button and donate to my client.

Thank you.

I ordered a car seat from amazon and I received a message that it was damaged during delivery and had to be returned to the shipper.  That is the last correspondence I received.  I have not been refunded my money on credit card or told that a replacement is coming.  It's been 2 weeks.  I have been on amazon.com and looked at getting a refund, but the choices for a refund do not exactly say that the item was damaged in shipping and needed to be returned to shipper.  The options are damaged when arrived, or changed mind, or something else that would indicated I would need to return the item.  Well, I don't have the item.  Any ideas on how I would go about resolving this?

Customizing "PayPal Send Money" feature

I like the way PayPal lets people send money, needing only the email address. But, I have a few questions I need answered before accepting money.

Is there a way to over-ride the PayPal Send Money feature to force answers to the following questions?
First Name, Last Name
Address (Street, City, State, Zip)
Employed? (Yes/No)

If Yes,
Job Title
Company

[ Submit ]

If they do not complete the form, they can not submit payment via PayPal.

Can this type of customization by handled on PayPal? Or, do I need my own domain for this?

(I have a WordPress site, but hope I would not need to force people to recall my domain and hoped I could do it all on PayPal)

Thanks

My insurance broker client, who sells policies via their e-commerce website, received an email from New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) asserting a requirement that my client file a "Certification of Compliance" by February 15, 2020.

I've never heard of this before, nor has my client. The entity's website is www.dfs.ny.gov. I assume we must file as indicated, but I can't tell if this is something required only of businesses incorporated in NY State, which my client's company is not.

I'd be grateful to know if anyone here knows whether whether a response on my client's part is required. Following are the money quotes from the email:

"All regulated entities and licensed persons of the DFS were required to file an annual cybersecurity regulation Certification of Compliance under Part 500.  Although you did not file a Certification of Compliance this year, this is an early reminder that one is due by February 15, 2020.  If you are compliant with all sections of the Part 500 that apply to you by the end of the year, then please file your Certification in a timely manner.   If you do not file a Certification because you were not compliant with Part 500, then please keep appropriate documentation including any remedial plans....

"The Department will consider a failure to submit a Certification of Compliance as an indicator that the cybersecurity program of the Covered Entity has a substantive deficiency.  Any current or future deficiencies of Part 500 …

Or What tools do I need to make it happen? Need Advise. Should I buy a space fro a provider  or can I do it with AWS or google?

Hi guys

I'm not a developer so bear with me with the simplistic question. I'm trying to understand how API's work. For example, let's say an ecommerce platform says that you can connect to their API in order to do your queries from your site. My question is, how do you know what programming language to write it in so that you can have your query made?

Does the platform provider have to tell you the language compatibility?

Thanks for helping

Hello Experts,

Recently I have had reports that customers can make $0 Value  purchases with the default 1111 promo from https://cart.citysightseeingtoronto.com/

I realize that now if you leave all passengers as 0 you can still continue, I will fix this. However, real purchases with >0 passengers (not just infants) are going through with $0 being charged.

Is anyone able to make such $0 purchases? If so, I would greatly appreciate how to replicate/fix. I would also appreciate if I can get  the confirmation number they get, so that I can void it.

Since this is coming from the general public, I do not have the type of browser used, etc. As you'll also note this is a legacy app in Classic ASP, but if needed, I was hoping if someone can give e a pointer on how to get and store the client (browser) info,  so I can add it to a field for analysis? I'm  drawing a blank, would this be a part of the equivalent of $_SERVER, or js header()?

Any help will be appreciated.

I have a client who has had two separate credit cards compromised in the last week.  Same user, same computer, different secure websites, and two totally different cards.  I have run malware and AV scans on the machine, verified the web browser was fully patched and didn't have any extensions installed, verified Gateway AV IPS and App Control was enabled on the Sonicwall.  We looked for rogue APs and came back clean.  Both cards were used within an hour of being used for online transactions and the cards were entered in to the web browser manually, not saved.  I am running out of ideas on where to look or what to even look for.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Phone Experts!

I recently purchased an Android smart phone, and I really love it. A friend of mine would like to also upgrade her phone and would prefer to upgrade to an Apple IOS phone. Specifically to one of the newest Apple 11 phones. She is very familiar with the IOS interface since she also has an Ipod touch, so that explains her favoritism of Apple.
So we are wondering, should she order her IPhone 11 online through Apple corporation, or should she instead place an order through her current carrier who is horizon? I also imagine she could also buy it through Best Buy. Anyway does anyone have any advice on the best approach to purchasing the phone?

I often get "You won a $100 bonus gift card" emails which I promptly report (because Hotmail has a report phishing menu item).
But I also have email accounts where there are no ways to report clearly fraudulent messages.
Are there any places I can forward fraudulent emails to?
It seems like the wrong thing to do is nothing. I'd like to do something. There's not even a topic here on EE which covers "Fraud" or "Phishing" or "police"

I have not seen the statement myself but I have someone telling me there is an unrecognizable charge on her credit card statement. I'm thinking she possibly means it's a debit card. But either way, from some of the information she provided to me, it looks to me like it's an ACH transaction.  I've been trying to find something similar on the net but no success, so I'm asking here. Does anyone know why or can somebody give me an instance where an ACH payment might show up on a credit card statement?

Thank you.

We have  a need to track conversions using two Facebook pixels on our ecommerce site.  Would we be ok to include two pixel codes as per below?

<script>

  !function(f,b,e,v,n,t,s)
  {if(f.fbq)return;n=f.fbq=function(){n.callMethod?
  n.callMethod.apply(n,arguments):n.queue.push(arguments)};
  if(!f._fbq)f._fbq=n;n.push=n;n.loaded=!0;n.version='2.0';
  n.queue=[];t=b.createElement(e);t.async=!0;
  t.src=v;s=b.getElementsByTagName(e)[0];

How is the best way to find out if your site is performing poorly on Mobile browsers.  I have a caching plugin and there response is to ignore Google Pagespeed even though my page is showing a 68.
https://gyazo.com/0d8a95a07655c3335385271b26c82d8b

Can this value be ignored or is it affecting my Google ranking?

If it is, what can I present to this caching s/w company they are wrong?

I have a client that was contracted to make some changes to a website from SquaredSpace. https://www.thelearningcurvelkn.com
The website offers classes for high school kids to help them prep for the SAT/ACT tests.
Originally when you clicked on a link to a class, it took you to Eventbrite for more information and to register and pay.
To save money, they decided to drop Eventbrite and use SquaredSpace's e-commerce.
She set it up correctly. Now when she clicks on the calendar entry, she gets the following error:

We couldn't find the page you were looking for. This is either because:

    There is an error in the URL entered into your web browser. Please check the URL and try again.
    The page you are looking for has been moved or deleted.

You can return to our homepage by clicking here, or you can try searching for the content you are seeking by clicking here.

If I click on a button at the top of the website, called Classes & Bootcamps, it will redirect me to the classes, I click on the class of interest and then the description page with the shopping cart appears.

I can't get the URLs to change. They use SLUGS which can't be changed when I go into the options of the page.

The page with the problem directs me to : /new-events/class/jumpstartmath1
the button directs me to /class/jumpstarttomath1

This is the first time for me working in SquaredSpace, so I am learning everything first hand.

This may be more a matter of taste rather than a technical question:

I have a web app that I'm going to be selling Membership access to. I'd like to use Shopify as the Merchant Account/Gateway in which I will need to purchase and configure two plugins:

1. A Recurring Subscription plug-in that will allow me to charge Customer's 30 days out from when they subscribed and keep that payment recurring for a given duration
and
2. An "Affiliate" plug-in as I will be paying a Sales Team a portion of the initial cost from the Customers.

I realize this is a big ask and I'm fairly new to Shopify, so please use laymen's terms with your suggestions. The app is written in Node.JS/React so I suspect that integration won't be too difficult for the Devs.

Thanks for your assistance.
