Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications, electronic businesses, and social network services using a wide variety of languages and standards, including the familiar HTML, JavaScript and jQuery, ASP and ASP.NET, PHP, ColdFusion, CSS, PHP, Flex and Flash, but also the implementation of a broad list of standards including XML, WSDL, SSDL, VoiceXML and many more.

While designing for a sign-up process, I'd like to be able to show a progress indicator dictating how many steps are in the process, total. Right now, I'm using little dots across the top of the screen that "fill in" as you're making progress during the page-by-page sign-up.

My question is in regard to a particular step that could extend or contract the number of remaining steps because a step is added or taken away. It feels weird that, in the middle of a 4-step process, a choice made on Step 2 would then show 5 dots on the following page.

Is there an alternative method to make this feel less strange? Or is the idea for a progress indicator made null because of how this sign-up process works?
I'm writing structured data code for my breadcrumb and ran into a question about the position number of the item.

For Seattle:
1. US-->2. WA--->3. King County--->4. Seattle    

This is my breadcrumb for Seattle, which is in position 4.  The numbers are not displayed to the users of course, but in the code behind for structured data, the numbers are required by Google.  
"itemListElement": [{
    "@type": "ListItem",
    "position": 1,

However Canada doesn't have counties for their cities.  So on my Calgary page, the breadcrumb naturally will not show a "county" level.  but when it comes to the structured data code behind, which is appropriate, is calgary in position 3 or position 4?  

1.  Canada-->2. AB-->4. Calgary  

1.  Canada -->2. AB -->3. Calgary

Since all the US cities have the city at the fourth position, I wondered if I should "skip" a level for my pages on Canadian cities, but I'm not sure what the best practice is.  Should I code my structured data to put canadian cities in position 4, or position 3?
This strange error on displayed text (in image) I have seen over and over again on dozens of pages. Then I tried using Chrome and the problem went away.

Do I need to switch to Chrome?

Hi all,

Just saw an article on Winn-Dixie losing court battle dealing with their website and lack of being fully accessible to the disabled. Conclusion to the case was websites will need to conform to WCAG 2.0 standards. Our company operates 3 websites, all on the Shopify platform. I have been given the task to find out if we are compliant.  I downloaded the NVDA screen reader and all three sites were compatible with that, as well as a Mac screen reader. My question...anyone dealing with this and what tips or advice can you supply to assist in the matter ?  Is there an official "checklist" ?  Thanks in advance, I am sure we will be hearing more about requirements and potential lawsuits soon enough.
Dear sirs,

I have CSRF enabled in my REST application.
I use either RestTemplate or Postman as Client.
How can I set the application in a way that each request (POST/PUT/DELETE) is carried with a token in its header.

I remember using an implementation of  ContainerRequestFilter while working on Jersey, and I could take care of my requests globally.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
I am developing a vacation planner http://www.osoviejotravel.com that will allow clients to select various trips on fishing boats, sailboats,select tours and activities. The page is loaded with a database query and each checkbox has a unique ID number (id from database).  As per Ray Paseur's example in Expert Exchange Contributor, I am using sessions to store the checkbox  values. It works as described except when I add another check to add another boat to the list.  The new boat is stored however the previous selection is deleted.  How can I add new selections without deleting the old?
 Below is the code:

<?php // RAY_checkboxes_session.php
/*?>error_reporting(E_ALL);<?php */

if (isset($_SESSION[$fish_id])) $_SESSION[$fish_id] = TRUE;

if (isset($_POST[$fish_id])) $_SESSION[$fish_id] = TRUE;
if (!isset($_POST[$fish_id])) $_SESSION[$fish_id] = FALSE;

$fishid_alt = $fish_id . "Alt";                  
$form = <<<EOFORM
<form action="index1.php#fish" method="post">
<label><input name=$fish_id type="checkbox" /> Yes
<input type="submit" value="Add to Planner" title="click 'Yes' and then click 'Add to Planner'"/></label>

if ($_SESSION[$fish_id]) $form = str_replace($fish_id, '$fish_id checked', $form);

echo $form;; ?>
I am looking into Webpack 2 Code Splitting for a project but I'm not sure if I understand how code splitting works.

In my project I have 2 features.

Each feature consists of 4 or 5 files so the code for each feature has several javascript files where the code lives.

These javascript files are NOT ES6 Modules, just standard javascript files with code.

With Webpack 2 Code Splitting I intend to break all these files into 2 groups so that can load them on demand when needed.

So, what I'm thinking of doing with it is ...

1. Project Loads just the core

2. On demand the features will load when needed.

Would code splitting work in this circumstance and is this what it's for?
I am having little difficulty in resolving one URL redirection in remote location. Example: My website is https://temp.company.local/dev/rel and it's accessible through Remote host. However, when user requests for https://temp.company.local, he is getting redirected to Apache manager page which I don't want. Can you please provide a solution to fix this problem so that only proper URL will work and half will not redirect to tomcat manager page?
Just to update I'm not using IIS.

I'm trying to debug an issue on our website.  My question is if you look at my example (from Chrome ) and the "Cannot read property 'setRequestHeader' of undefined" error, does the order of the output mean that the top most file identified is the culprit for the error? The error links to this line in the file:
jqXHR.setRequestHeader(window.__antiforgery.headerName, window.__antiforgery.token)

Also if anyone has any advice on how to debug this issue, it would be highly appreciated because I have no idea!

Hello All;

OK, this is code that I found a while back, and posted here.
ASP Classic - Insert text, Line breaks and Code

The issue that I had, or am still having now, is that I am giving the user the option to choose the tags they want to use.
They can have as many tags as they need in their post.

The issue with the code in the link above is that it will only do one tag hard coded.
So, that I have done is added an REGGEX into it, and it works GREAT! for the highlighting,
However, adding this in, has messed up the main function of this code FUNCTION, and that is.
It adds the line breaks to everything OUTSIDE of the Code tags.

The REGGEX that I used and works is this.

Function Reggex(strString, strPattern, strReplace)

	Dim RE: Set RE = New RegExp

	With RE
		.Pattern = strPattern
		.Global = True
		.IgnoreCase = True
		Reggex = .Replace(strString, strReplace)
	End With
End Function

fString =   Reggex(fString, "\[code=(.*?)\](.*?)\[\/code=(.*?)\]", "<pre class=""line-numbers"" id=""code""><code class=""language-$1 demo"">$2</code></pre id=""code"">")

Open in new window

The original code is this. (Modified to work in my project)

 	CodeTags(1,1,1) = "[ code=sql]" ' Remove the space between the bracket, 
 	CodeTags(1,2,1) = "[/ code=sql]" ' Remove the space between the bracket, 
 	CodeTags(1,1,2) = "<pre class=""line-numbers"" id=""code""><code class=""language-sql demo"">"
 	CodeTags(1,2,2) = "</code></pre id=""code"">"

I'm assuming that I could just make "&amp" an "&" but also having the semi-colon confuses me?!?!? Any insight into a query string structured like this?

My question is about the mobile stylesheet.

Right now, when the screen resizes, the menus are shown vertically.
I want the menus to be horizontally over one or more lines.

screengrab - the menus should be over one or more lines
I have changed the code in such a way that the navigation menu (all <a> anchors) have their display set to inline-block but that doesn't work. What in the code preventing the navigation bar from not being shown horizontally over one or more  lines?

#navigation a
  border-right:1px solid #408282;
  border-top:1px solid #668b8b;
  padding:5px 61px 0 14px;

I do not get it.

Hello All;

I have used a lot of different BBCode type of scripts.
This one I like, as it is very simple to use and implement what I need for my tags.
The issue that I am having, is when you select an area and click the button.
It wraps the selected text with the BBCode.
However, it then jumps to the bottom of the textarea.

Any incite on this would be great.
Thanks, Carrzkiss
<script type="text/javascript">

Hi Experts,

I'm a web developer, been developing websites in .NET/SQL Server for over ten years now, and a prospective client wants to fly me out to corporate for an interview. I'm self taught, and am aware I have big holes in my knowledge of web technology (i.e. various transfer protocols on the web, etc.) , and wonder if anyone would recommend a crash course in web development of the main areas I should have a strong grasp of. I understand OO and coding principles of course, but without a BS degree, I don't know what I don't know. Any good recommendations on getting up to speed fast?

some websites, change their links and then they forget to update the broken links.

for example the link in this page http://www.xldynamic.com/source/xld.XtraTime.html  refers to http://xldynamic.com/cgi-bin/counters/unicounter.pl?name=xld.XtraTime.dl&cache=0&deliver=http://www.xldynamic.com/downloads/xld.XtraTime.zip

which does not work and if i remove the some part of the link and only leave http://www.xldynamic.com/downloads/xld.XtraTime.zip

it will work and will download.

i was wondering if there is a easy way to find the list of all publicly available download links for a website.

i used to work with www.websitename.com/index.html long time ago, but that does not work anymore.

any idea how to get the list of download links for a website?
I'm looking for an xpath tool, like the one that firefox has.  I have searched and do not find one.  I find xpath helper and Finder for Chrome.
For IE Edge I find nothing.
Is there an xpath for Chrome and Edge?
xpath Finder seems to work on the fact that you already know the xpath.

Can an xpath from firefox be used in Chrome and Edge?
I want to put a pop up window on which I can display some information when a button or check box is selected on a web page.   I created a simple test page which displays a modal window when a button is clicked.  On this page everything works as expected.  (testpage1.php)

I then tried to add this to a more complex page with multiple layers, each displaying different information.   On this page the modal window is visible on page load but it wraps around and does not display any border.   If I enclose the whole page in a div tage only part of the modal is displayed.   If I dont use the DIv around the whole page more of the modal is displayed but it still wraps and does not have the border.    (testpage2.php)

Can anyone see what I have done wrong?

The web server is running on Open-SUSE using Apache and I am viewing the page using Firefox.
In Chrome there is this Extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/alice-keeler-open-side-by/oohcehjlgohbhbljoepeoedbgcpcefod 

Allows user to have links auto resize to half the screen.  So that, if I'm using Chrome and there's another link I'd like to open side-by-side with the current page (say for a list of definitions to be used with the current page) when I click the link both the current page AND the link to be opened resize themselves automatically to occupy half the screen size and side-by-side.  So, rather than having one full screen with a new tab that you have to click back and forth, you get two smaller screens equally sharing the screen real estate and right next to each other.  Just from clicking the link.

Thing is, you need to have the extension installed to get this effect.  I'm thinking that this may be some sort of code one could add to links.  Sort of like target="_blank" in HTML.  My thinking is that, if that's true, I could write specific links in web pages to open like this.  Anyway to write the links to get this behavior?  That, somehow, this is native to Chrome.  And, by writing the links in the right way, we could get this effect.

As an aside, I know one can set links for new windows, and then drag the windows to line them up.  Also aware of the idea of dragging to touch the edge in windows makes the focused screen automatically go to half size.  But, the pages I'm making get a lot of low-experience users, so having the links do this…
