Language suggestions for a primitive data collecting website

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 01/16/2019 - 17:07

Hey guys,

I have a background of Python, C and C# programming from Uni and some HTML5/CSS training on my free time.

I need to develop a certain web-based productivity tracker for work.

Currently we are using pen and paper logs and I am looking to fix that.

I need a simple webpage that requires a login - security or registration is not an issue since the users are predefined on a closed network. I just need an active session to record the user entering the data.

All I need is to enter some actions to a database - as in the logged in user needs to click a button for the activity, add a fast textual description and hit send.

This will be recorded in the database with the time, action a d text.

What language(s) should I look into learning in order to create something of the sort? What approach do you reccomend?

The goal is to be able to access it from your phones browser so every employee can log actions instantly and not run to the log in the office.

Help with Google Ad disapproval

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 01/16/2019 - 17:07

Apologies if this is not the correct sub, I wasn't sure where to post this.

I have a Wordpress website (https://chrisgin.com) that was rejected by Google Ads a few days ago as it found malware on it. There was a nulled theme being used that did generate malicious links and this has since being fixed.

Google Ads is still rejecting my site, and according to their support, the malicious link is present in the http version of the site, but the https version is clean.

My site auto directs to https so I'm at a loss as to how to go about resolving this. How does Google even scan the http version? And why would that be different than the https version?

Any suggestions appreciated.

Help with Adobe Muse - need good resources

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 01/16/2019 - 16:50

I am about to work on an Adobe Muse website and I'm struggling to find a lot out there on the internet about operating within that platform. I'm turning to the Reddit Community for help because they're phasing out Adobe Muse, probably because nobody's using it. To begin with, I only found one thing online about where to sign in and edit / create the Adobe Muse web pages and it's an in browsing URL that doesn't even have options to create page or edit anything except text really... More basic than basic. Client is telling me that I need to sign in through FTP which I've never really used much but sure I could figure it out if that is in fact the best way to work on an Adobe Muse site. Any resources on how to work within Abobe Muse and an FTP client would be much appreciated.

D6 Privacy/GDPR implementation

Drupal - Open Source Content Platform - Wed, 01/16/2019 - 15:45

Hello all, while Drupal 6 is obviously rather long in the tooth and not actively supported anymore I thought it may be worth asking about this subject. I’m sure there are quite a few D6 sites still out there and user privacy is quite a hot subject and even a legal requirement in many areas these days.

So, are there any modules or resources available that would help the admin of a D6 site tackle something like GDPR and provide the user of the site with fine grain control such as opt-in on specific functions (analytics, ads, etc.)?

Clearly there are tons of options available for D7 and D8 but seemingly lacking for 6, so worth asking I think.

Trying to build a about us section in shopify - trying to use code template from codepen.

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 01/16/2019 - 15:18

Link to code: https://codepen.io/jvyanay/pen/WLWzJg

I put the scss in a file called staff.scss and called it to the page with

{{ 'staff.scss' | asset_url | stylesheet_tag }}

{% if page.handle == "staff" %}

{{ 'staff.js' | asset_url | script_tag }}

{% endif %}

but all I get is (no SCSS error on dev tools)

Any decent SCORM player libraries out there?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 01/16/2019 - 14:54

I know SCORM is complex, but I can't find anything that let's me play a SCORM package. In understand this won't be a simple client side library, but there really seems to be a void here.

I found a couple dead or experimental projects on GitHub, but nothing significant.

Anyone know of anything?

What's the correct way of creating a blog?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 01/16/2019 - 14:37

Hey, I am currently new to web development, and I have been building websites from scratch from raw HTML and CSS and making them responsive. However, a client has approached me with building a blog section to the website. What is the correct way to do this? Should I create the basic pages with HTML and CSS, and install WordPress to create the blog page?

Thank You!

How do I play huge video in html5?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 01/16/2019 - 14:17

Hi webdevver, I'm working on a project and I need to play a video in an html5 page. Nothing strange but the challenge are basically two. 1) the video is 500mb mp4 so putting directly in a video tag is not working 2) the video URL should be private, so I cannot refer the mp4 direct link

I've ready built the "private" video with a token, and I'm using the video tag with my php page in the src parameter.

Is there a way to do what I want?

Help with javascript modals again

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 01/16/2019 - 14:06

<div class="modal" id="1">

<div class="modal-background"></div>

<div class="text-content">Text from ajax requests</div>

</div>

Javascript:

<script>

var modal = document.getElementById('modal');

function reply_click(obj)

{

var num = obj.id;

modal.style.display = "block";

}

var span = document.getElementsByClassName("modal-close")[0];

span.onclick = function() {

modal.style.display = "none";

}

window.onclick = function(event) {

if (event.target == modal) {

modal.style.display = "none";

}

}

</script>

My modal is working well with data being obtained from ajax requests and closes also when I press the modal-close ie... a x on the corner of my screen. However whenever I press anywhere else on the background it isn't closing as it's supposed to, where am I going wrong?

Having issues with enabling fullscreen with Phonegap

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 01/16/2019 - 14:00

Hey there,

I'm using Phonegap desktop with the developer app to try and build an app. It needs to be fullscreen, so I've set the fullscreen preference to true in my config file, but the app still builds with the status bar showing at the top. Any reasons this might be? Seen suggestions online to edit the AndroidManifest.xml file but I don't have one, using latest versions of all software too. Any help much appreciated.

Thanks!

Need Advice Regarding Working with a Freelancer

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 01/16/2019 - 13:11

FYI: I've worked with web devs before, but not on the freelancer platform. I launched a project on Freelancer. I created a video to walkthrough the intended UX and detailing the items that needed to be completed (not a big project just one integration and a couple of smaller customizations like field width). I checked profiles and awarded it to a solid candidate after a pretty long chat about it. I get the scope document, and it is clear we are not on the same page. We went back and forth earlier because initially he didn't seem to understand what the intended UX was. He kept recommending other solutions that change the UX and make customer navigation very difficult. But after some in-depth discussion about the design and the challenges, it seemed like we were understanding each other and he had a solution that would work. I guess I misunderstood.

The UX flow he recommended was for the customer to add the first service through my proposed workflow, then any additional services through a drop-down list. The problem is, with 100 different services that most customers don't understand the difference between, that doesn't really work. When I brought this up, his recommendation was to make the drop-down list searchable which doesn't solve the problem of customers not being able to see the details of each service. Also for the price he quoted $650 (his standard rate is $25 an hour) his solution seems a bit pricey. I have some programming experience in C#, VBA, HTML and CSS, so I know that some of these integrations can take some time, but 26 hours seems like a long time basically to create a plugin that makes a shortcode which pre-populates a field in the booking plugin (when shortcode is called by inline JS on button press, which I'm handling the implementation of).

I could really use some advice on how to handle this going forward. He seems frustrated with me, and I'm a bit frustrated with him. Do I just cancel it? I'd like to at least compensate him for his time for trying to find a better solution, even if it was outside of the intended UX. Is there a way to do this in freelancer?
