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.

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"

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>
<!-- Facebook Pixel Code -->
  !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];
  s.parentNode.insertBefore(t,s)}(window, document,'script',
  'https://connect.facebook.net/en_US/fbevents.js');
  fbq('init', '111111111111111');

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.

Introduction to R

R is considered the predominant language for data scientist and statisticians. Learn how to use R for your own data science projects.

Long question made short: If CASH is 100% as good as CASH and if one assumes that PayPal is 90% as good as Cash, where does Bitcoin fall on a 1% to 100% scale in your opinion. The only variable to eliminate for my question is for you to assume that ALL intentions of mine, a private user, are completely honest and above board. I know virtually nothing about Bitcoin and am looking for straightforward, honest and blunt opinions of this "product". I do not want to find myself in a situation that I perhaps funded a proposed new bitcoin account with a few thousand dollars only to have someone say to me "You mean to say that you never heard that bitcoin had this or that problem or potential pitfall in the works that I had not heard of. You need not go into great depth on your answer and I request that not more than EIGHT Experts give their opinion so that I can be able to award a decent amount of points to each of the eight respondents with a decent amount of points. Thanks Experts!

I'm after recommendations for a sim card for Travelling to Europe, specifically Portugal, England, France, Switzerland and Italy.

Just want something that is predominantly for data but has enough phone credit for calling ahead to hotels, restaurants etc.  It also needs to work across all the countries without having to change all the time.

I have a customer with an ecommerce Magento 1.9.x website.  We have discovered that our hosting package bandwidth usage has gone up considerably.  It appears that some of our product pictures on the site are victim of hotlinking.  I have found some references on how to stop the hotlinking or replace it image when hotlinked.  For example: https://alistapart.com/article/hotlinking/  However, I was wondering is there a way to give the user that viewed the "hotlinked" picture from the remote site, a link back to our site.  If their going to steal our pictures/bandwidth, then maybe we can redirect their visitors to our site??

I need a sort that uses the parent id which is called jk_sku.  I am on 5.1.1 WordPress and 3.5.7 for WooCommerce.  I only need this as an option for sort.  So following two articles on the net.  I put together this code

function jk_add_custom_sku() {
$args = array(
'label' => __( 'Parent ID', 'woocommerce' ),
'placeholder' => __( 'Enter custom SKU here', 'woocommerce' ),
'id' => 'jk_sku',
'desc_tip' => true,
'description' => __( 'This SKU is for internal use only.', 'woocommerce' ),
);
woocommerce_wp_text_input( $args );
}
add_action( "woocommerce_product_options_sku", "jk_add_custom_sku" );

function jk_save_custom_sku( $post_id ) {
// grab the custom SKU from $_POST
$custom_sku = isset( $_POST[ 'jk_sku' ] ) ? sanitize_text_field( $_POST[ 'jk_sku' ] ) : '';

// grab the product
$product = wc_get_product( $post_id );

// save the custom SKU using WooCommerce built-in functions
$product->update_meta_data( 'jk_sku', $custom_sku );
$product->save();
}

add_action( "woocommerce_process_product_meta", "jk_save_custom_sku" );
//add_action( "save_post_product", "jk_save_custom_sku" );

####### Custom Sort Option ######################

// 1. Create new product filter
 
add_filter( 'woocommerce_get_catalog_ordering_args', 'bbloomer_sort_by_name_woocommerce_shop' );
 
function bbloomer_sort_by_name_woocommerce_shop( $args ) {
     
    $orderby_value = isset( $_GET['orderby'] ) ? wc_clean( (string) wp_unslash( $_GET['orderby'] ) ) : wc_clean( get_query_var( 'orderby' ) );

A good buddy and I are helping another friend at a large corporation with an Access database performance issue.  My buddy is developing the SQL Web App stuff and I am in charge of all the server maintenance.  Its a 70% 30% split between the both of us.  Is there a service that will let us be paid individually at these percentages? For example client pays the entire balance and then its split 70/30 between the two of us? Does Upwork (or similar) offer something that could be of help in this scenario? We are being paid via a corporate credit card. Which is nice!

I have duplicate SKUs in my Woocommerce Wordpress product table. There are plugins that delete duplicates by title, but I can't use those, as I need to preserve duplicate titles. How can I find and delete the newer record that has a duplicate SKU?

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals
LVL 13
HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

For one of my classes, I have to conduct a 20 min game/activity with the class that explains how blockchain works in an easy-to-understand way. Would be even better if it has to do with marketing, as that's the class I'm in. It can be as rudimentary or as advanced as we want.

Only idea I have right now is playing a giant game of rock paper scissors where everybody frantically runs around for 10 minutes and plays & wins as many games of rock paper scissors with classmates as they can. When each game is over, both opponents have to go to the notebook in the center of the room and put a tally mark next to who won. This shows that blockchain ensures accountability, everybody documents every "transaction" that is made, and that everybody has access to the public records at all times. (Rather than just everybody keeping track of their own score, which could induce cheating.)

Any ideas? I feel like this is a fun question to answer.

My client wants to configure two types of shipping in her Woocommerce store:
1. Some products will be $12 shipping, regardless of how many products are ordered.
2. The remaining products will be $12 shipping for the first item, but $6 shipping for all additional items.

Can this be done without a woocommerce extension? If not, which extension would enable this?

Thank you.

Please explain the ".co" domain extension

What does it mean?

Curious.

I have an existing client who's asking me if I'm a "Stripe Developer" .. and I'm not exactly sure how to answer him, so I thought perhaps I should just ask here first.

QUESTION: Does implementing the Stripe payment method on a website require any kind of understanding of their API, and does it require any kind of custom programming (ie: PHP) ?  Or can it be implemented much more easily .. without any back-end programming being required at all whatsoever?  On a related note .. does the Stipe payment gateway handle the sending out of the payment confirmation emails?  Or would I need to handle that myself (ie: PHP) ?

I just want to know how to best answer my client, as I wouldn't want to underestimate the development costs.  Please advise.

Thanks,
- Yvan  

p.s. I'm already aware of the WordPress option.  Tha's not an option in this particular situation, so please withhold your responses regarding that approach.
