I just spent way too long realizing that by setting the boundary property for Twitter Bootstrap popover Javascript to viewport (I believe it's parent element by default), it gets rid of the flickering issue I was having with popovers triggered on hover. If anyone else is having that problem, this fixes it. :) data-toggle: popover data-container: body data-boundary: viewport data-trigger: hover focus

Who here has seen a noticable increase/decrease in traffic since Google BERT launched on Friday? Unfortunately it hasn't been too kind to us.

I'm trying to use CSS as so: <link rel="stylesheet" media="screen and (max-width: 991.98px)" href="/files/mobile_css/daniweb.css" type="text/css"> <link rel="stylesheet" media="screen and (min-width: 992px)" href="/files/css/daniweb.css" type="text/css"> I want to load one CSS file for our mobile layout and a different one for our desktop layout. The problem is the web browser always downloads both files, which completely eliminates the performance advantages of having a more lightweight mobile CSS. What I'm thinking of doing is using a `<link rel>` to download all of the CSS that's common between mobile and desktop. Then, conditionally, via javascript, injecting CSS via @import (I guess?) to load the …

Does anyone have any experience using Ezoic to increase site speed? Namely ... * Is their site speed increase predictor accurate? * Does complicated Javascript still work perfectly? What are the trade-offs? * What is their pricing?! It says it's based on traffic, once the free trial ends, but I can't find anywhere that actually says what the actual pricing is

Google PageSpeed Insights indicates a score of 90+. However, the same pages still fall into the slow speed category in Google Search Console Chrome UX report. It says FCP is longer than 3 seconds (3.1s average). What is some low hanging fruit I can do to help real world performance? We serve static content via a cookieless subdomain but using a third-party CDN is cost-prohibitive.

We lost a lot of Google traffic beginning Tuesday, December 10th. Has anyone else experienced an algorithm update around this date? It seems to be related to [this article](https://www.seroundtable.com/december-11th-google-search-ranking-algorithm-update-28673.html) on Search Engine Roundtable that shows that there's some chatter going on.

I went to Disney World for Thanksgiving break, and all those germs got to me, and I now have bronchitis. On top of it, my laptop (the only computer I have here in California) suffered from battery swell, and needs to have its battery replaced, which means that the Apple store is holding onto it for 5 days. I’m now sick and without a computer for the upcoming week.

Before anyone files a bug report, we are no longer pretty printing (using javascript to add line numbers & color coding) code snippets when on mobile browsers for performance reasons. It's not that it was particularly non-performant on mobile. It's rather just that I'm working hard to improve performance across a variety of devices, and I felt like it wasn't worth the trade-off, given it's an extra second or so of javascript parsing in exchange for making code not all that much more readable when on a mobile device.

To AMP or not to AMP, that is the question. For those who have decided to implement AMP (Wordpress users, I'm looking at you!), have you noticed a difference since doing so? For those of you who have chosen not to, what are your reasons?

I'm getting ` Session: Error while trying to free lock for ci_session` show up in the error log a couple times a minute, sometimes, and every 15 minutes other times. Using Redis for sessions. It's not happening on a different server that has almost the same code base and is sharing the same Redis server, albeit with a different session name. I'm using session_write_close() on every page as soon as I'm done handling sessions.

DaniWeb was written in Codeigniter, and when posting to the forums, we use database transactions that look like this: $this->db->trans_start(); ... insert into the posts table ... ... update the member's post count ... ... update the tags table ... etc $this->db->trans_complete(); On occassion, the error log will show for a particular query within the transaction: *Query error: Deadlock found when trying to get lock; try restarting transaction - Invalid query* When that happens, the entire transaction is rolled back. However, this is not ideal because when someone attempts to make a post, we don't want it to completely fail …

Someone posted a comment in the [php usleep manual](https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.usleep.php) that usleep() consumes CPU cycles whereas sleep() and time_nanosleep() do not. Is this true for PHP 7.x?

Any dog parents out there? My sheltie just turned 6 months. She's suuuuuch a smart breed that I literally need to keep her mind occupied every moment throughout the day or she gets bored and destructive. She gets all her meals in the form of puzzles. Today has been especially difficult because she has been non-stop barking every moment *unless* I'm actively training her, playing with her, entertaining her, or feeding her. The moment I walk back over to the computer and try to get back to work, she's back at it. Anyone else here work from home while dealing …

Living in California, I periodically need to log into my computer that's back in my home in New York. Not that often, typically just a couple times a year. But today, when attempting to connect, I got an error message saying, "The remote TeamViewer is running an old version which is out of date. Therefore, you cannot connect ot this Version anymore." Soooo, firstly, why is TeamViewer not backwards compatible?! Secondly, I haven't updated TeamViewer on my local computer either anytime recently, so both local and remote computers should be running versions of TeamViewer that were released roughly at the …

Hi, A notification just started showing up in my AdSense that says: **Earnings at risk - You need to fix some ads.txt file issues to avoid severe impact to your revenue.** It gives me the ability to download an ads.txt file and upload it to my domain root. Here are the contents of the file it wants me to download: google.com, pub-8671058606454459, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0 and here are the *existing* contents of my ads.txt, which have been in place now for a very long time: google.com, pub-8671058606454459, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0 google.com, pub-8671058606454459, RESELLER, f08c47fec0942fa0 What am I doing wrong??

My boyfriend got me an Oculus Quest as an early birthday gift, and while I love it, he loves it wayyyyy more. Does anyone have any game recommendations? Unfortunately, the Oculus Quest does not share a marketplace with the Oculus Rift, and since the Quest has only been out since the summer, there isn't nearly as big of a directory yet compared to the Rift which has been growing its marketplace for years.

Sorry for the intermittent downtime over the past few days. We think we were being DDOS'ed, perhaps unclear. However, we've upgraded to new web servers tonight, to bring HTTP/2 support and *finally* move from PHP 5.x to PHP 7. A few years late, I know. Let me know if anything isn't working as it should!

A lot of forums and blogs have links at the bottom of the article to jump to the Previous Post or the Next Post, by way of various forum and blog system PrevNext plugins. More recently, Q&A platforms have been shifting to show a sidebar listing of other similar questions asked. DaniWeb goes this route. I was wondering if anyone out there has found either of these methods very helpful? What is the likelihood that, when stumbling across a question or topic as a result of a Google search, that you would have an interest in the question that just …

I'm not quite sure what happened, but at some point fairly recently, Chrome DevTools stopped showing things in the Console. As a web developer, I obviously frequently use this to debug Javascript. Now, instead, there will be a little red circle with an error count in the top right corner of the DevTools window (as always), so it will recognize when there's an error, but the Console will be empty instead of spitting out what's wrong. Even if I do `console.log('foo');` from within a Javascript file, it won't write to the console. I'm using what's currently the latest version of …

Does anyone have any favorites? Which are the most intuitive for api documentation? Ideally I'd be looking for one with a built-in console.
