Replacing CKEditor on the Fly While Enabling Save Button Using jQuery

I was working on a project yesterday when I encountered the need to have DIVs change into text editors upon double-click. It was fairly easy since I was using CKEditor as a rich-text editor and there was an example on the CKEditor website on how to do that. The DIV to be replaced by CKEditor looks like this: While the script on the demo page looks like this: I have to say that the code works well. But the project that I’m doing uses jQuery, so I had to convert the above script to utilize it. Please take note that … Continue reading

Custom 404 Page using Isapi_Rewrite in IIS

Recently, I’ve been working on a website that’s running Coldfusion 9 on an IIS server. The major limitation is that we were only given FTP access on the¬†web host, we don’t have any kind of access to the Helm control panel whatsoever.

Because I’m an SEO wannabe. Given the limited resources and access that we have, I at least have to try … Continue reading
