Hi, I hope I can explain this well enough.

My folder structure looks like the attached. In each folder, I have src/pages, results, dev/gulp.

pages contains the nunjucks files, results are the resulting html files from running gulp nunjucks, and dev/gulp is where the gulpfile.js is.

When I want to make a change across the board, say to the navigation, I have to use the command line to go into each folder, gulp nunjucks, upload, then back out by changing directories, navigate to the next one, gulp nunjucks, and on through all 13. So my command line looks like the attached.

Can you help me find a way to speed that up?

I am trying to center text on the 3 widgets (3 circles with icons).  But, when I modify the css, it centers text on all pages!  Somehow I am not specifying the correct css to just modify the text in the widgets.  I tried modifying the below at it had no effect.

Can anyone recommend a wordpress plugin that is for responsive tables that I can add links to the content.  I found a bunch but none seem to let me modify table cell data to add html for links.

 I am redesigning this site and need to find a way to organize this content like they have it with the first column having links to related pages.

Hi E's,
I Have 3 buttons and a Materialize Modal that contains a HTML Select with Four options to choose from. 0 by default and 1, 2, and 3, and each number between 1 to 3 are associated to each button.
The objective is, when I click in any button, open the Modal and change the select view for the correspondent number.
I try change the selected with jQuery in this way:
$("#numbers[value=3]").attr("selected", "selected");
but not work.

I am trying to convert an @Html.Textbox image button to a submit button with  the onclick calling a Javascript function.

Here's what I have:
@Html.TextBox("Next", null, new {type = "image", src = @Url.Content("../App_Themes/icons/button_next.png"), @class = "imgbottom", onclick = "javascript: ValidateSelection ($(\"[name$='selectedItems']:checked\"))"})

Here's what I've tried:
<input type="button" value="Next" onclick="ValidateSelection (selectedItems.checked)">

and my Javascript function:
function ValidateSelection(item) {
    if (item == null || item.length == 0) {

        var validationSummary = $('.validation-summary-errors ul');
        if (validationSummary.length > 0 && $('.validation-summary-errors ul li').length == 0) {
            validationSummary.append('<li>' + "Please select at least one item" + '</li>');
        var errors = $("[name='ErrorMessage']");
        if (errors.length > 0) {
        var buttonGenerateReport = $("#GenerateReport");

Hi There!

I have a customer who is a developer. They have 12 staff. 5 Developers 5 support people, 1 director and 1 sales/admin person.

They have an action pack, which covers up to 10 users of Exchange, Windows CALS etc, and that's fine.

What they are trying to do it make sure they are correctly licensed for dev machines, dev environments and testing labs.

It used to be that companies bought MSDN Subscriptions but I think those are now only for individuals and not for use in businesses at large? I had heard about MSDN Platforms but when I checked the pricing the customer just about died.

Anyone know of a more cost effective way for a company this size to correctly license their environment?

Is it possible to make a form responsive for mobile phones that lives on another server and is pulled into a page using an iframe? This is a bill pay form. The setup provided by the merchant services vendor does have a custom CSS option via a field they provide in their page building app used to setup the fields, labels, buttons, etc. Tried it but won't work so far. Main issue is the iPhone.
Hello all,

I have a requirement where I need to be able to do the following:

1.  User from anywhere in the world types www.whateverdomain.com
2.  They are either presented a prompt or a page that asks for username and password
3.  After they successfully authenticate their username and password they are automatically redirected to their specific URL.

I would prefer to keep this as absolutely simple as possible as this is the one area none of us are an expert in.  So the goal would be a simple solution using IIS for example and once the configuration is done, we could easily add others as we expand.  I am open to other ideas as well as long as it's easy to maintain and cheap.

Our initial goal in mind was to have a dedicated Server 2016 IIS server in a DMZ with this authentication page on it, that once successful will redirect them to the specific Web Application running inside the same data center.


I tried saving a global.asa in the root of the webserver folder:
Sub Application_OnStart
    Dim cnnDem, cnnString
    Set cnnDem = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    cnnDem.CommandTimeout = 60
    cnnString = "Driver={SQL Server};Server=servername\SQLEXPRESS;Database=mcd;Uid=username;Pwd=password"
    Call cnnDem.Open(cnnString)
End Sub

Open in new window

Of course I replaced servername, username and password with the real values. But then no page on my website will show up. I just get the Server 500 error. If I move the global.asa away from the root, then the webfiles works again. What am I doing wrong? And how should I handle the global.asa file correctly to have sql server connection available in my web application?

Best regards


I am writing a php code to do a bulk export of all the blogs on my wordpress sites.

this is what I used, i.e. in a loop obtain blog ids and switch to the sites and run export.
issue is its just opening the content on a browser rather than to an xml file.

require_once( ABSPATH . 'wp-admin/includes/export.php' );

$args = array(
               'content'    => 'all',

Is there a repository or anything like that of old versions of your website?  Indexed pages with old content?  Is there a way to "Purge" the internet of any old versions of webpages?  Meaning, there some old pages from my website that are indexed that I have changed and or deleted that still come up for some reason.  Thanks in advance,.
We are looking for automation processes and we read about automation anywhere training. We do have regular automated functional testing tool. Why cant we use them in production versus buying huge license product such as automation anywhere ? Writing automation in functional testing tool involves development effort but it heavily reduces license cost versus automation anywhere RPA. Can someone expertise in automation anywhere please explain how RPA is different in these perspective ?

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 need to set up a simple site that is mainly used for posting articles and links but would need to be able to set up ads, comments areas for the articles and possible a forum add in eventually. Don't have web design experience but familiar with how to lay a site out and what needs to be done.

What suggestions do you have that would be a good service that has site building tools for non-developers and does not cost a lot but allows some of the features we need? Probably not much traffic up front so something just to get started that can be expanded later is all we need.
