Hi, I've updated all my plugins. Then I ran P3 Profiler and got results saying this. What can I do to help speed up the plugins, or is there anything?

Please go to http://dev2.magickitchen.com/menu/MKMS/98033.html  - this page uses the same template as this one: http://dev2.magickitchen.com/menu/MKMS/98043.html  and 50 others. All the other pages look correct, with the heating instructions on the right side.

Only http://dev2.magickitchen.com/menu/MKMS/98033.html is wrong, and it's wrong in all categories. I've looked over the product in the database, and can't see any other problems. Any ideas? Thanks.
I need to get data from teachers about the courses they are giving on a particular day.

I currently have an access database where the data is input its a local database on a pc that is not on all the time.

I thought I might have a webpage that the teachers could input the data.

I have a synology nas ds411.

So maybe some guidance on the best direction for me to go to achieve this there seem to be many technolgies and I need something simple to implement.

I have sqlexpress on my local machine too but as I said thats not on all the time.

regards in advance
I have a stored procedure that updates a record.
I need to add code so that it only runs IF the parameter passed has a value

The parameter is:  request.querystring("marriageidspouse")

If the parameter does existing run the SP code, something like:

IF request.querystring("marriageidspouse") <> NULL THEN 



Open in new window

What would the correct syntax be?

Sometimes the part of the URL passes no value like:  marriageidspouse=

I am using classic ASP
Hi, I need a link checker. I'm using Inspyder Insight, but it gives me a phone number link that's on every page, and a few other pages that I don't need. I know I can exclude urls, but I don't want to exclude it from searching pages, I want to exclude it from seeing and reporting certain links.

So Ideally, if I could get a link checking tool where I can say: If the anchor text is a number or contains these characters, don't report it.

Anything like that out there? Thanks.
I am trying to understand this article:


and how they fulfill the WebAPI mentioned under the heading:

"Create Web API"

I see they stat with an empty C# Controller, but can not find what exactly they mean by WebAPI.

I am not understanding what is meant by the term.

Please explain.

On this page: http://ruback-jewelry-sale.wizewebz.com/ if you click "RSVP" button a modal opens.  In Chrome and Safari the placeholders show up and if you type in the boxes you see your black text input.  

But in FireFox for some reason the placeholders are not showing and if I type in the input boxes the text does not appear.

Any ideas on the cross browser issue?
So I allowed one of my website domains to lapse into inactive status. It is now in the "redemption period" and I've changed my mind about letting it go; I'd like to keep it. It will cost me nearly $100 to get it out of redemption though. So, if I just let it completely expire, I might be able to pick it back up for cheap (if I'm quick about picking it up early on the day that it's made available to everyone else). How will I know which day that is (I tried "whois.com" but could only find the dates of Registration and Expiration - and the expiration date was some time ago). Also, Whois.com still shows me as the owner.

Any other advise, about my attempting to do this, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
I have a file management app that I can upload smaller files to the server with no problem. I tried to upload a 45MB and I get the following error. Those numbers don't even add up. How can I resolve this?

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 94601573 bytes) in /home/glennstewart7/public_html/fm2/dirlist.php on line 202

The memory_limit is set to 120M
The Max Upload and Post size is set to 120
Max_Input time is -1 which  means no limit.

Hello. I have a form.  On that form, I have some radiobutton lists.  On some of those list for example, if you choose no then a text box will display asking why you chose no.  But for some reason when you move to the next question and make another choice and another text box appears the previous one disappears.  I'm assuming it is because I have  autopostback=true on the lists. But if I take that out, nothing happens on the OnSelectedIndexChaged attribute of the list.   Here is the code:

Here is the radiobuttonlist where you can see where I call the function to make the panel visible and the autopostback is set to true. And I also have a validator on it to make the user choose something:
"<asp:RadioButtonList ID="rblConcernsAbtBehavior" runat="server" OnSelectedIndexChanged="rblConcernsAbtBehavior_SelectedIndexChanged" AutoPostBack="true">
                    <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="concernsAbtBehaviorValidator" runat="server"
                                           ErrorMessage="Please choose one" Display="Dynamic"

Then I create panels for the textboxes that appear based on your choice.  Here is the panel
" <asp:Panel ID="pnlConcernsAbtBehavior" runat="server">

I have a part of my code which is giving me a syntax error:

if Session("invalidBlobID") = "y" then
    Session("invalidBlobID") = ""
    Response.Redirect "forms_error.asp?caseid=(rs_case.Fields.Item("id").Value)"
end if

Open in new window

I am trying to redirect but the above gives me a syntax error. What is the correct syntax?

Does tomcat expands war file if already extracted, if we start tomcat again? Say there is war file which is already extracted and we manually  updated some file,will they be overwritten?

I'd like to use jQuery input mask to do this if possible. I'd like to limit a text box to only allow letters and dashes, and deny all other characters and numbers. Can anyone assist?
Is there a way to find out who owns a domain even if they have domain Privacy added to their site?

I am working on an application and the structure of the entire things is poor. i want to restructure the application but im curious what people think is the best way

currrent structure
  • root
  • ajax
  • layouts
  • includes
  • html
    • index.html
    • login.html
    • logged_in
      • module_1
        • index.html
        • payments.html
      • module_2
        • index.html
        • tasks.html
      • module_3
        • index.html
        • history.html

each module has their own subdirectory within the ajax and layouts with specific pages

im curious if it would be better to have everything each module would need in each folder

  • module_1
    • ajax folder with ajax
    • layouts folder with
    • pages

i think the application may be a little large to start using a framework so i dont think that is an option
I need to create a matrix of child Components inside the parent Component, which creates them. Meanwhile, I need to pass in a few values in init of the child Component, like an Index number and an image filename.

How do I pass in parameters as I create these child Components?

In the code below...
The timer is not waiting 7 seconds...
It is redirecting immediately
I need the delay

    <script type="text/javascript">
        window.onload = function () {
            var foo = 'http://members.mywebsite.com/gp.aspx?enc=' + getParameterByName('enc');
            setTimeout("window.location='" + foo + "'", 7000);
        function getParameterByName(name, url) {
            if (!url) url = window.location.href;
            name = name.replace(/[\[\]]/g, "\\$&");
            var regex = new RegExp("[?&]" + name + "(=([^&#]*)|&|#|$)"),
                results = regex.exec(url);
            if (!results) return null;
            if (!results[2]) return '';
            return decodeURIComponent(results[2].replace(/\+/g, " "));

Hello. I have a form where I have to make panels visible or invisible based on the radio button or checkbox selected.  The problem is, when you click on any choices the focus goes to the top of the page.  So when filling out the form you lose your place once you start to scroll because each time you click on one of the elements the focus goes back to the top of the page.  How can I stop this?
When I email a list of results via email we currently only have the HTML which is not very nice formatting.
When I display it as a webpage we use bootstrap so the formatting looks nice.

Is there a way to send the HTML table via email and make it look nice?  like the one we have online using bootstrap classes?

Alternatively do you know of any nice HTML5 template I can use to email tables with repeated regions?  (Many records)
I am trying to improve the look/feel of the email.
hi guys,

On larger screens, the background image here http://demo.1800onhold.com.au doesnt take up the whole page, is there any way to get this to stay as fullscreen?
I have an ASP page that has about 20 recordsets. Each recordset returns a maximum of 10 records, some only return one.
Would the ASP run faster if the code to return the records is in the ASP page or would it be faster if I create stored procedures that then the ASP would call to create the recordsets and return the records?

I am using ASP classic and MS SQL 2012 R2

Hi, Our partners host webinars quite often. I'm setting up an events page on our site that shows all the upcoming webinars (using Event calendar by Modern Tribe on Wordpress 4.8.2,)

We just have a link to the partners site where there's a registration form.

But our marketing director wants to be able to track how many people come from our site to register. Is there any way to track that from our end?
