@Rob50 Aha, I'm yet to get the new portal; I'm still on the old one.

This doesn't appear to have any relevance to the question at all.

Did you ever finish setting this up?

comment What preferred domain should I choose for WIX website (www vs no-www)?
For more background on why no-www is a bad idea, you can see my web site yes-www.org :)

comment What preferred domain should I choose for WIX website (www vs no-www)?
You cannot use CNAME records for the naked domain, whether you use WIX or not. This is a design constraint of the DNS itself. This, combined with the need to do load balancing and failover, is why all domains on WIX must be redirected to www. (The IP for the naked domain is on Google Cloud Platform and Google manages its failover with route announcements. The servers which answer it only send the 301 redirect.) This is not unusual, either, nor is it the only reason why you might need to use www.

comment Why isn't the HTML break tag acceptable anymore for top and bottom margins?
@Mike If your daily AdSense income is measured in cents, you are engaged in what we call premature optimization. And even if it were dollars, I'd probably still think the same thing. Anyway, remember that your site's content should be semantically appropriate, because not everyone uses what you normally think of as a web browser. What you should be focusing on at this early stage of your site is high quality content.

comment Does URL encoding create duplicate content?
I had to downvote this because it's wrong (except for the "SEO expert" being a liar, that's probably right). Only unreserved characters can be decoded and be equivalent to their percent encoding, and the colon is not one of them. The colon is a special character and, unfortunately, due to a bizarre quirk of the specification, isn't always safe to use unencoded anyway.

That's just overkill. :)

comment What percentage of users use a cookie blocker?
I use an extension which doesn't block cookies, but converts all cookies to session cookies unless I've whitelisted the site. As soon as I close the tab, the cookies go away. And my whitelist is fairly short.

comment Get phone number of (via mobile networks) browsing mobile device
They assigned your phone its IP address, so they already know whose phone it is. Looking that up is a trivial SQL query.

@StephenOstermiller And it's only necessary to do XSS-related escaping for URLs originating from user-generated content. Doing it for URLs in the navigation bar is pointless (but remember, the user's name is user-generated content).

The previous version of this answer turns out to have been wrong. I apologize for any confusion.
