see my main blog http://NealWalters.com. My main expertise is Microsoft BizTalk (http://BizTalk-Training.com), but also delve into WCF and general C# issues quite often. I also have training sites for VBScript and SharePoint (http://VBScript-Training.com, http://SharePoint-Training.com).

I'm also building a system on Google App Engine in Python and starting to use the Dojo/Dijit JavaScript library for http://Olexe.com.

I sell a program that teaches the Hebrew language at http://HebrewResources.com.

comment 404 or ugly page on IE, but Firefox, Chrome looks perfect
Pieter - While you were reading/trying my link, I had just tried changing my .htaccess and that's what happened (that's my ISP's default redirect page), I reset it back, and now it's back to the original issue.

Okay, so how do I isolate and debug? What tools/techniques to use. If it is getting 404, then how can the page ultimately show in FireFox?

comment Autoupdate shows current when I'm on 3.1
My question is more this: AFTER installing with Fantastico, why doesn't the auto-detect "Check Update" detect it needs a new release?

comment Recommendationf for Quiz Plugin that saves results
Thanks, I did search, but read features carefullly on mTouch, and never saw anything about saving the data. You know, sometimes a recommendation is better than reading through 20 cheap plugins.

comment database columns: post_title vs post_name
And I'm storing the Hebrew words in a custom post type which will be used accessed via ShortCodes on real "pages", so if I never intend to display the page, can I leave the post_name null?

comment database columns: post_title vs post_name
But wouldn't the encoded hex have to match what CharMap.exe shows?

No, see my answer. My question was much more specific than the general hack question.

First, I want to make sure I'm clean with the default new database created by Fantastico.

comment Use of Javascript with Dojo/Dijit on a WordPress page
Yep - at least two hours... learnhowtoputaudioonyoursite.com/template-test @TheDeadMedic - Had to learn about templates, custom-header: get_header("DijitClaro"); and body_class("claro"); and still have to work on some issues of a table not lining up. A lot of precedence of CSS issues I presume.

comment Use of Javascript with Dojo/Dijit on a WordPress page
@TheDeadMedic - Ok, I didn't realize the comment was actually important! Got the page to come up, but now with none of the theme. Which I could have basically done by linking to an .html or .php page. So now, I presume, the goal will be to put the theme elements back in, by copying/pasting from some other template.

@TheDeadMedic - Let me look further, I think I picked the wrong item from the list, and my new template is not on the list...

comment Use of Javascript with Dojo/Dijit on a WordPress page
@TheDeadMedic - Yea, right! Thanks, I am very technical, but this is new ground. I renamed my .html page to .php, added the php tag at top/bottom, put an "echo" with a heredoc on all my HTML (also tried no PHP tag). I created a new page in WP, and set it's parent to my new template, and put "What will happen here" in the page-contents. When I view, only "What will happen here" shows (but correctly in the theme with header/sidebar). Nada, not even the H1 from the template is showing. Still don't understand how/where it merges the head/body with the parent theme.

Ok, trusting this is best answer. Sounds like a few hours of research...

comment Use of Javascript with Dojo/Dijit on a WordPress page
I looked at the code there, but it's hard to tell what was put in the WP Page vs the theme. Do I have to change my theme to do it? I put my pages in orig post.

comment 3.1.3 auto-upgrade
Now the hosting company is giving me excuses, so perhaps you were right.

Perhaps the smarter solution is to work with my existing hosting company. No reason to switch.

comment 3.1.3 auto-upgrade
Thanks, I tried both tricks above (nice to know!). But I think I'm blowing up when it is unpacking the zip it download to my site; in other words, I think the download worked, but the unzip didn't. Maybe this is something I need to get hosting company to fix. (It is shared hosting... I was thinking maybe some chmod commands using FTP might fix it).

comment 3.1.3 auto-upgrade
I've done a lot of manual upgrades before, it's just SO much slower, having to wait for the FTP from PC to Server. Was hoping that since my upgrades used to work, there was a simple security fix, maybe setting attributes on some folders.

comment plus sign not working in widget “Header: Nav Menu”
I'll try the Semiologic forum; here is where their widget is described: semiologic.com/software/nav-menus

comment plus sign not working in widget “Header: Nav Menu”
I guess it's a widget in the Semiologic theme. I still get confused about what is "standard" and what is a widget; they don't seem to get labeled as 'add-ons' when you use them. I just know it used to work, and now it doesn't. I do know it's dangerous to use widgets that go-away when you switch themes.
