I am developing a around 300 HTML web pages that need a version number displayed in the footer. Problem is some customers are using version A and some people are using version B. So depending on the user, I want to display A or B and only want to change it in one place. I have used document.write and pointed to a .js named ver.js file which contains

document.write('Test: V4.5')

Open in new window

and the HTML to display on the page:
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="ver.js"></script> 

Open in new window

My question is, if I have three different versions I need to display depending on the user, what is the best method to display ('Test: V4.5') or ('Test: V4.6') or ('Test: V4.7') using  JavaScript which would be written in one place. I don't want to have to hand write the version number on each page, but only in one spot. I asked this question on Stack Exchange and got beat to hell by those who answered. Can you guys help? I am trying to learn this and hope I am asking this question the right way.

Further, lets say user ONE should see Version 4.5 on the bottom of their page, and user TWO should see Version 4.8 at the bottom of the page. And since I have 300 pages, I only want to change the version in one place to be reflected on all 300 pages?

I know I can use Variables, but not sure the correct way to do this. I am not using PHP.

Thank you for not yelling at me.

I've reviewed the article by Julian Hansen detailing how to create linked dropdowns using JQuery and PHP. However, how would I go about this if I have the data stored in different folders located on a server?

Ex. Main Folder > Sub Folder > 3rd folder > Document

1st Dropdown list will provide a list of states (list extracted from Main Folder)

2nd Dropdown list will provide a list of cities (list extracted from Subfolder, dependent on 1st dropdown selection)

3rd Dropdown list will provide a list of counties (list extracted from 3rd folder, dependent on 2nd dropdown selection)

4th dropdown list will provide a list of word/excel/pdf documents (list extracted from document, list is dependent on 3rd dropdown selection)

The form should display as a popup form, with submit and clear buttons.


My button don't work but alert work after success, what should I do ?

I want my splash page to have my menu and logo at the top, but then have an image that fills the entire remainder of the screen and resizes for varying resolutions as needed. Down on the image will be my log in panel.

I just need to know how to code the image aspect of this.

Is that possible?

If not, just have the image as the background filling the entire screen?

Oh men,

I think I read WHY this is happening but not sure how to fix it. If you visit


The slideshow slides stack and then finally start the slideshow. I don't want the user to see this issue and have read a few css ideas and a few java ideas. Since I'm not experienced in Java at all, I'm not sure where to put a fix to resolve this. The page source code should show my script and css for it.

I need someone to show me where to put a fix on this in my code.

I am trying to create a dynamic form for the payment plan installments.

For example, the total is $700 and I have chosen 10 installments. so it will be $70 per   installment. Let say the client wan to pay 100 for the first installment so the first installment will be 100 and the rest is $66.67 and so on.Also the when making changes  it should only affect the row going forward.

Hi i need to load a responsive slider which contains image & data from external xls / xml file. How can i make the info in the file display in the slider in html. Can anybody please help me with the code / links?
I am trying to get Trend Micro statistics written out to a text file with a batch file.

pccntmon.exe -c >> File.txt
pccntmon.exe -v >> File.txt

I see that the pccntmon.exe app seems to start a new command line when it is executed so only the flags are passed to the exe.  I am sure that this is due to ensuring that the app is not compromised by some easy silly code.  I have many servers over Win 2K3 and up to gather this info.  I do not have access to the central admin server.

I have tried the following :
start /wait cmd /c "C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client\pccntmon.exe" -c >> C:\<desktop>\file.txt
start /B /wait "C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client\pccntmon.exe" -c >> C:\<desktop>\file.txt

Open in new window

This opens a new window and displays the agent info in the console only.  
Also, after the pccntmon.exe executes it is expecting a user to hit "Enter" on the keyboard.  I think I can approach this with a bit of  Jscript.

set SendKeys=CScript //nologo //E:JScript "%~F0"

%SendKeys% "start /wait cmd /c "C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client\pccntmon.exe" -c >> C:\<desktop>\file.txt"


// JScript section

var WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell");

Open in new window

But I got to get past the first part first.  Any direction is appreciated.
Is there a regex, or vbscript way to reverse a filename?
I know some standalone file-renamers can do that, but I prefer a regex or vbscript, so I can include that in my file manager.

So, like:
fm: 54321 yaw desrever a ni deyalpsid saw emanelif siht yllanigirO.txt
to: Originally this filename was displayed in a reversed way 12345.txt

I have a left panel of headers, that look like of like menu items. That is done.

I have a right panel. I want to be able to click on the left header and have a panel on the right appear.
If I click on another header, the panel on the right disappears and a different panel on the right appears, and so forth.

So how can I click a header on the left, and have it show the content on the right, and then another header hides all content on the right (not knowing what one was showing) and then shows the selected content on the right.

I don't want a slide out.
I looked at code and it shows panels where you click a plus symbol and the content within the same DIV group below it shows and hides. But I don't want it anywhere near each other on the page.

How do I do what I described?

Is it possible to create a script that will put my PC to sleep at certain hour and wake up at certain hour and configure "task scheduler" that will run this script? I just want to have this done automatically in stead of manually.  If snot, are there any other option to have this accomplished ?
Here's the code that I'm using right now that's working great...

				$javascript_message.="alert(\"Hello, ";
				$javascript_message.="!\\n\\nJust a reminder - You have made a payment within the last 30 days according to our system.\\n\\nThanks!";
				echo $javascript_message;

Open in new window

In the end, it looks like this:

localhost says...
If one can be satisfied with a purely utilitarian look, this is great. If, however, you want to try and dress it up, here's where I'm running into some problems.

I've been able to determine that you can't customize an alert, at least not in basic JavaScript. Still, I'm wondering if there isn't something I could do, perhaps through CSS or something that would allow me to better match the color scheme of the actual site or just get rid of the verbiage that says, "localhost" says.

I've seen several things via google, but I want to hear from some specific sources that can give me some options so the end result looks better. The functionality works great, I just want a better looking alert.
