I like the dark net being a philosophy of specialized software to access secret functionality. My friends and I need a private document editing environment

Are most Darknet sites done in Wordpress, with secret logins? I read it's specialized software.
If the hegemon wanted to access my site, would they just use brute force?
If I make my own software, I can do multiple access attempts lockdowns. Can Wordpress restrict multiple access?
Would a PHP site fulfill this specialized software need?
We just need a login page that goes to a document editing/comment system. where I can give my friends unique login info for. It is for a project development colab
Ideas? Thanks

Hi Experts,

How to backup a wordpress website? Back up everything

From a high level: I am trying to create a function in my child theme that replaces the one from the parent theme.

More details: In Wordpress, I am trying to replace this function:
if ( ! function_exists( 'presscore_get_category_list' ) ) :

Open in new window

from my theme's (The7 theme) helper.php file with a modified one that I am placing in the same location, just in the child theme:

My function is being ignored when the page renders.  Inside my helpers.php file, I'm only including the function I am trying to overwrite.  Is there something special I need to do to get it to recognize my custom function?

Thank you!
I have a category page for sales https://www.theherbsplace.com/product-category/on-sale/ and I need to have the sales listed via product name rather than alphabetical.  For example, I have $2 OFF Aloe Vera, Buy 5 Aloe Vera and a Buy 9 Aloe Vera all with unique sku's.  That's how I would like for them to be sorted but now they are being sorted between other products strictly by the first letter.


In the above screenshot the middle product Aloe Vera Gel should not be between the 2 Aloe Vera, Whole Leafs.
Hi Experts

We are running two Wordpress Websites on a Windows Server 2012 with IIS Version 8 and the DIVI Builder in Wordpress.
Sadly i've two major Problems which i could not fix yet:

When i Switch the Wordpress Permalinks from "Plain" to "Post Name" or "Custom",  the Website is no longer available from outside (Error: "ERR_TO_MANY_REDIRECTS).
This Problem concerns only the Front Page, all other sites / sub-sites are displayed correctly.

I tried nearly everything:
- deactivated all plugins
- "Extension=openssl" in php.ini is ON (Need to enable that for plugin updates), tried also to switch that off again
- dns entry on domain Provider: "www.xyz.com -> our IP
- Wordpress URL: http:/www.xyz.com
- Here the web.config file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                  <rule name="WordPress: http://www.xyz.com" patternSyntax="Wildcard">
                        <match url="*"/>

My Wordpress Admin pages are really slow,  Especially inside of my WooCommerce store when I search for a product.  It can take up to a minute and a half to return a product searched for.  The DB is pretty big but I think there is more going on here that can be fixed or at least be sped up.  Any suggestions?
Plugin wont activate.  I just moved a website from one host to another.  Same PHP version 7.  I have a plugin that worked on the old site but now does not want to activate on the new site.  Maybe I need a new license?  Does the following error give any clues on what might be the issue?

https://www.themepunch.com/ It is the Rev Slider
i have a woocommerce shop page with a price slider, and i have a materialize slider. there is a conflict between them that i do not know how to fix.
if i remove the price filter widget the materialize slider works just like it works in other pages.
but once the price filter widget is there, the materialize slider javascript doesn't work.
so i looked at the html and it seem that the price filter widget inject css classes and a span element.
this is the materialize slider html when the price widget is removed, this works:
correct materialize slider
this is the materialize slider with the price widget enabled:
materialize slider with the price widget
and this is the woocommerce price filter widget html:
woocommerce price filter widget
i have no idea why the there is a conflict and how to fix it.

The routine works for the shipping value #_shipping_method_0_132643.  The problem is that UPS has different tiers and each time the rate number changes.  The next numbers are #shipping_method_0_132615, #shipping_method_0_132639, #shipping_method_0_132642, #shipping_method_0_132640 and #shipping_method_0_132641.

It seems the line of code to change is
function doPOCheck ()
    // Only proceed if we UPS is checked
   if ($('#shipping_method_0_132643').is(':checked') ) {   ##################### Change this one

 if ($('#ship-to-different-address-checkbox').is(':checked')) {
        ad1 = $('#shipping_address_1').val();
        ad2 = $('#shipping_address_2').val();
      else {
        ad1 = $('#billing_address_1').val();

I have a jquery that needs to be setup as a delegated event.  Or, in other words to load after ajax is finished.  This is beyond my abilities.  I did find this article but i don't know how to implement what they are suggesting since I am very new to jquery.  Here is the article - https://learn.jquery.com/events/event-delegation/

My site isn't live yet so I have restricted access to it.  If you need to see the site I will need your IP to whitelist you.  The more particulars and a screenshot of the site is on this question - https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29106720/Need-Jquery-Fixed-To-Post-Shipping-Message.html#a42609003

I understand if you don't want to give your IP just give me the code to test and I will insert it.  Because this is wordpress I don't; want to hack the wordpress core files.

jQuery(function($) {
  $('body').on('change', '[name="shipping_method[0]"]', doPOCheck);

I have a website that was built using GoDaddy's Website Builder.  I'm not a techie, and was always happy that when I had a problem editing my website I could call GoDaddy.  Last year they switched me over to WordPress, ostensibly because it's "easier and better".  Now when I have a problem I have nobody to call :(.  I followed the instructions for how to edit text on my website, but can't get anything to work.   How can I get technical support?


This is a screenshot of my site that isn't live yet.  Because it isn't live, I will need your IP number to be whitelisted before you can access the site.  Just pm me your ip number if you are interested.  Because the site isn't live and I pay by the hour it isn't on all the time.  So, if you can let me know when you can look at  it I will make sure the site is turned on.


This is my jquery that isn't producing the result it is supposed to produce.

Wordpress Options How to count the number a serialized data in a field?

I have an options field that contains a long list of UPC codes:

I want to query that field and count how many UPC's are in the serialized field but I'm not certain how to:
What I have but obviously does not work.  The i is obviously the count but I don't know how to get at it.
All I really need to grab is  the number after a because that is the count. (a:9998:)

At some point, our sub plugin was disabled and subs kept working on paypal.
Eventually, some have now become out of sync.
Is there some way of syncing WooCommerce subscriptions back up with Paypal?
