Tumbleweed..... No replies. I am answering my own question. Someone on a forum (WordPress or StudioPress I don't remember exactly which) told me the comment form/box does NOT display on a homepage. It is that simple. I do not know why this is nor why it is hard to find out that this is so but this does explain the problem.

If your server is apache with mod_rewrite installed, then you can use friendly urls that map to real urls with the query strings then users only see the friendly urls. Here's some code to put in .htaccess: RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^section/(.*)$ /path/to/specialpage.php?section=$1 [L] Basically what these lines do is allow one to put in a friendly ...

In short, yes you are correct. The only big part of the equation you are missing is server-side URL rewriting - where essentially a request for http://www.example.com/aaa could be internally redirected by the web server software to http://www.example.com/get-page.php?home=aaa.html as a method of having more user-friendly URL's or pretty URL's. If your ...

While I certainly wouldn't consider it best practice, nor appropriate to do this without informing the customer, it is possible that your hosting provider, if they also manage your domain name and DNS settings, could have moved your website to different server either temporarily or permanently in order to keep your website online while carrying out ...

Next time when this happens, you can circumvent the proxy cache and see what's on your server directly. Instead of using your domain name and going to wwww.myaddress.com/foo2.htm you can direct your browser to your server explicitly, avoiding the dns lookup and any magical stuff inbetween: http://<your server's ip>/foo2.htm

in the <head> section of your code search for a line including a file ending .css - there may be several. Copy these files to the same folder as the code. These files are the stylesheets that set the webpage's colors, fonts, etc. You should also check for any other files linked to in the <head> section - especially javascript (.js) files since ...

Number one reason: To earn a mass audience. I'm still using older software along with two web browsers that sometimes I have to switch in-between because the developer adds code to the website that is incompatible with one browser. Consider people who are in countries that don't have access to the latest hardware and software (yet). You'll want to support ...

You have not finished learning. After ten years I still learn on a daily basis (which I love!). But, there's a point which could be considered "enough knowledge to proceed", I assume you mean that. Then another correction, you wrote 'Java/jQuery'. I assume you ment Javascript. Java and Javascript are two different things and can't be used for the both ...

What you could do is use the WHM interface to create a new cpanel account and associate a new domain name with it. That would require you to order a domain name from a registrar and associate the IP address of your server with it along with about 24-48 hours for the domain name to work. Then you can give your dev full access to FTP for that domain while you ...
