Hi - a client has asked me if I can help them with updating a page on their website.
It’s a pretty simple site and most pages are in HTML. I don’t have any knowledge of it through so is there an easy way for me to copy and paste text and images and have a 3rd party program reorder it in HTML so I can upload it ?
I have ftp access of course.

I am trying to redirect the following:

http://ppr/tax:81/tabular.asp to

However, what we would like to display is:

Is this possible.

For more clarity, ("https://taxcom.grwr.gov is a subdomain and
http://ppr/tax:81/tabular.asp is another subdomain

But because http://ppr/tax:81/tabular.asp is does not have its dedicated ssl certificate, we would like it to  inherit the certificate from https://taxcom.grwr.gov but replace taxcom with ppr.

Is this possible?

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks in advance
I am creating postage labels and recording them into a pdf file using FPDF and PDF_Label - all work fine, see code sample below ...
$text = sprintf("%s\n%s\n%s\n%s %s %s\n%s", "   6         022, "Name","Address", "Location", "State", "PostCode", "Country");

As you can see, I am using sprintf to format text for the label and using Add_Label from PDF_Label class to create the label.

I would like to BOLD the "Name" portion within the sprintf, if possible. As far as I can tell this can't be done. Tried using html tags inside it - no good, just prints the tags.

Any help or suggestions appreciated.
RequestHandlerInterceptor or AccessDecisionVoter which gets called first

I'm working on spring boot application and would like to know RequestHandlerInterceptor or AccessDecisionVoter which gets invoked first
After using apache and weblogic for more than 10 years(the last working module used is: mod_wl_22), I am ready to set up a replacement system with the newer version of the connector module (mod_wl_24) for our production.

I follow the official documentation from this link:

Then verify if this apache web server has included the dynamic sharing module: mod_so.c
[root@server90 conf]# apachectl -l

Open in new window

the next step is to try to test the syntax of httpd.conf:
[root@server90 conf]# apachectl -t

it shows some error message:

I am working on my website on PHP, and at some point, it is required to have a membership. I added the "Login with Facebook" but it is not working with me fully. When the user clicks on Login with facebook, it takes him/her to facebook and it returns him/her back to my website with a very big code that I do not know what to do with it.

The return URL is :

My login page is as per below:


I already uploaded the files from GetHub "php-graph-sdk-5.x.zip"
Facebook files

- What should i write inside the login.php to get the user details ? I need the email at least.
- How to understand the return URL?
I have been doing some research on services that will check for SOC2 compliance. Found a few but they seem rather expensive.
Any suggestions on a service that would provide with SOC2 compliance services would be appreciated.

We have a display with Android operating system built in.

A customer was using Youtube through the internet browser of this Android based display.

They accidentally managed to change the language displayed for the YouTube website to a different language and do not know how to change it back.

We would like to change the language displayed for YouTube back to English.

How would we do so?

I have already setup my extended oauth2 connection and I can do an impersonation of anyone in my org.

I can successfully, say, do a

 GET https://www.googleapis.com/calendar/v3/users/me/calendarList/someuser@ourdomain.net

and get a good response.

What I can't figure out is what calls to use in order to set “Share this calendar with everyone in the organization” and Set to “See only free/busy (hide details)”

Thank you in advance for any assistance!
I have a web application (ASP Classic) which uses DropZone and ASP Persist to upload files.
We were using jquery 2.1.1 and it works fine, but once we upgraded to jquery 3.1.1 we get the error below:

Persits.Upload.1 error '800a003d'

Wrong Content-Type. Make sure you have included the attribute ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" in your form.

/bluedot_2018/Intranet/Contacts/attachments_add.asp, line 21

This is without making any other changes to the code. So evidently Jquery 3.1.1 doesn't support something that it did on version 2.1.1
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have  Web Applications for reset passwords and unlock accounts ( self service). i need to integerate this solution with the users login screen inside the organizations.

by letting the users press on Forgot Password or Self Service link under the login screen then it will open web browser with predefined page for our solution.

is this doable or no ? we have WIndows 10 & Windows 8.1 Machines in the channel.

In my base controller I have this code which checks if there is a view and then displays it. I want to modify this to use for sending an email. I basically want to create views which contain html content for sending the mails. But trying to access it normally as if I were displaying a view doesn't quite work. This is the code for displaying the views on the website.

	public function view($view, $data = []) {
		// check for view file
		if(file_exists('../app/views/' . $view . '.php')) {
			require_once '../app/views/' . $view . '.php';
		} else {
			die('View does not exist');

Open in new window

To display a view, I would just do this in my controller:


Open in new window

When I am trying to send email, I want to just send the view into the email body.

$html = $this->view('pages/email');
//other variables go here

$send = new Email();
$send->sendMail($html, $subject, $setFrom, $addReplyTo, $addAddress, $altBody);

Open in new window

Doing this fails. I think I need to just return the view but not sure how to do this.
If you look at the image, there are shared web pages between the 3 applications, Web, Mobile and Touch Browser. I need to report the web pages uniquely per application. So if web page A is loaded, it will need to load different JS libraries for each type of application. Currently a JS bootstrap loader file handles the logic to load the proper JS libraries but that is a 1-to-1 relationship. I now need a way to determine which application is loading the web page and load the appropriate libraries (DTM libraries but irrelevant). The solution would have to reside in the JS bootstrap loader file logic. I’m looking into using the navigator object to sniff out which type of application is requesting the web page but not sure how feasible that is? Maybe feature detection is another way but not sure how/if this would work with the applications? Any ideas?

Web Page/Application Distribution
Hey everyone,

In the web app I'm documenting we have a number of text fields where, when you start typing something, it displays a list of matches. e.g. if it were a "state" field you might have


   New Jersey
  New Mexico
  New York

You can then click the state you wish to select.

Am I correct in saying that the above is not a search box? (The database field is text.)
Where i can download a sample or demo application which has the following..Any link would be useful

1. Source code
2. Sample SQL file to populate the data in mysql table or json to populate NoSQL
3. Uses Ajax in the front-end to send and receive responses
Hello -

We had a survey posted on our website and while we got a lot of responses, some are suspiciously similar even though they look like their coming from different locations. This might be too late but is there a way to distinguish between legit users and bots based on IP address or any other info?

For the future, how can we avoid this kind of situations(CAPTCHA?)

Thank you for your help!
I am looking to find an open source "donor management solution" similar to donor perfect (www.donorperfect.net).
I you have anything in mind please let me know
I had this question after viewing I need a synonym for the word "field" (Database context).

I'm documenting a web application screen that contains numerous fields per this redacted example for running (race) data for an athlete.

Date: 02/09/18
Race Name: Experts Exchange Challenge
Distance: 5 miles

Result:   Time: 39:09   PacePerMile: 7:50

Date, Race Name, and Distance are fields.

But how about Result and its elements (Time and PacePerMile)?  I'm calling Result a "field" and it elements "subfields".  Am I on safe ground? (My audience is technical people such as UX designers.)

What is the best forum software to have sub-forums that are managed by individuals and allows them to add / maintain their own categories? Ideally it would allow a user to also be moderator / admin over multiple subforums if need be, but still not able to mess with or access files from ones in which they are not admin/mod.  It would help if there was a lot of community support or plugins for various things, such as uploads/media, and API connectivity.

Any recommendation?
How to create a BaseDAO class for jdbcTemplate which handles the save, update and delete in generic way so that we can use the same in any entity.

for example, in sales we may have the id column as salesId, in product we have the id column as id, in inventory table we will have the id column as invId.

Assume we need to have one generic method for save which gets something like parameter names and values and inserts it

Example as


However the above example doesn't clearly says the or gives the implementation of the BaseObjectMapper and seems pretty big

Need a proper way to define the save, update and delete.

I'm documenting a set of (e.g.) ten screens. Nothing fancy, just a bunch of screenshots. Plus, tables containing:
  • Field Name
  • Datatype.

For three of the tables, I need to provide additional info, so I added a Remarks column. But, it's not needed for the remaining seven tables.

Is it considered better form to include the Remarks column anyhow, for consistency's sake? Or, does a column with no info look bad?

I'm documenting a screen in a web application that contains multiple fields. I need to specify the "type" for each one (e.g. text). What would you call a field where you can check one or more checkboxes? Selection List?
What do you call this list?

In a web app, I've encountered an icon that looks like that below. Is it called a balloon? Something else?
Balloon Icon?
