comment Allowing customers to edit static website via WYSIWYG
But that requires content management system-managed pages, right? The question is specifically about editing a static website.

How is the page included on your website? It seems like this would necessarily be JavaScript or an iframe, which makes the search engine and accessibility implications of this pretty bad. Maybe I'm misunderstanding though.

I'd not seen BBCode abbreviated like that - link - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBCode

I don't think a WebDAV dependency helps very much, but it's certainly an idea.

Many others? The only other cms mentioned in this post so far is drupal. Your comment is not helpful or germane to this question.

Do you have the .htaccess code you posted before or after the main wordpress .htaccess rules?

Is your .htaccess rule intentionally triggering the 404 file? Seems like throwing a plain permission denied error would be less bandwidth usage.

SoundManager looks pretty good! And actually incorporates the already accepted answer of using <audio>. Great stuff and welcome to Pro Webmasters!

comment How do I specify the Google sitemap generator destination directory
This will not work sitemaps.org/protocol.php#location , *The location of a Sitemap file determines the set of URLs that can be included in that Sitemap. A Sitemap file located at http://example.com/catalog/sitemap.xml can include any URLs starting with http://example.com/catalog/ but can not include URLs starting with http://example.com/images/.*

comment Simple future-proof, backwards-compatible way to play audio mp3 files in-place on the page?
It's a standard filetype, but won't think force opening in an external player? My hope was to keep the user on my page and using existing browser resources as the player. This sounds like the same problem with just linking to an mp3, it sometimes (often?) takes the user out of the browser.

comment How can I prevent a power user from calling my ajax functions?
Are the ajax calls completely unauthenticated? Do you create sessions for each? Are there patterns to the abuse? And is the problem specific manipulations or more the amount of load it adds to the site?

comment Track down segmentation faults in PHP?
S.W.: Seems like a problem doubly suited to stackoverflow and serverfault, because the source of the problem is unknown, and could be server configuration related. In cases like this, I argue some place should embrace the question and take a shot. I hate it when people have frustrating questions that can't find a home because each site argues it's "not part of what we do!" It's like getting the runaround from a government agency. Someone step up and help!

comment Does Internet Explorer 'timeout'?
So part of the returned value is an image? Then that potentially complicates the issue because of possible image caching and rendering rules. Complicated! Good luck on a fix, feel free to update your question with an answer if you find something interesting!

comment Track down segmentation faults in PHP?
Question much better suited for serverfault.com . I will say Gallery in latest forms seems to be fairly resource intensive. Generally if there is a mechanism to allow it to do caching of SQL queries (latest versions require MySQL) then you're going to have better luck.

It depends on jQuery and ExtJS. Developer Docs here: aloha-editor.com/wiki/index.php/Implementation_Guide

It's a competitor to TinyMCE, so there is no default backend. It's very nice, but does not meet my criteria.
