How to asynchronously load JS & CSS files in Drupal site?

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 05:01

Hi so google page insights is recommending I asynchronously load my site's JS & CSS files in my Drupal 7 site.

Google Page insights says: Your page has 6 blocking script resources and 7 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.

Is there anyway to enable this feature? Thanks!

Questions About a Website Side Hussle.

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 04:43

Hello Reddit!

So I'm a CS student at college and I'm looking for a way to make money with a website. I have some experience with website design, I'm just not sure what kind of websites make money.

What kind of a website would the community recommend that could make a little extra money on the side? I've heard you can make money with a blog, but I'm sceptical.

Website for Independent Musician

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 04:43

Does anyone know of a service provider or WP theme that caters to independent musicians trying to showcase their music?

Requirements:
* Ability to play music from the site
* Ability to play video
* Looks professional on desktop and mobile

I'm a developer and can build a solution for this but I don't have the time. If I could just point my relative to an existing solution and let him run with it, that would be ideal.

Thanks!

How much should we have quoted?

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 04:43

Hi guys,

Could you give me an estimate on how much should my company have quoted 5 Wordpress websites?

Moving from existing domains/hosts to brand new sites with visually matching theme between the 5 sites for 3 restaurants. It was an ASAP job with a month deadline on all of them. No online sales, just promotions and single pic menus.

Just curious, because I'm pretty sure my company undercharged and I haven't gotten paid enough :) Not looking for an exact figure, just a ballpark idea :)

Oh and we're located in the North of the UK if that helps.

Thanks!

Umbraco Resources

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 04:43

So I've recently started running with Umbraco and don't see a lot of mention of the platform on this sub; It's very Wordpress heavy.

Anyone out there use it? If so, do you have any go-to resources (exlcuding our.umbraco.com) for reference, code components, tips, etc?

I'm using Umbraco Cloud for my work projects and the hosted version for personal projects so anything you could share that general Google searches wouldn't provide, would be magic!

Where do the trends of web design come from and who makes them up?

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 04:43
What are web design trends?

Web design trends - the fashion for certain things in the design of web resources. As it should be something trendy, trends roll from one end to the other. What are they like? Really different. Almost no one can say for sure that it will be fashionable in 3-4 years. For example, in 2018 the Internet goes crazy on such trends:

  • Polygonal mesh
  • Illustrations instead of photos
  • Free geometry
  • More animations
  • Video instead of text
  • Many fonts

When he learned the current trends, they seem logical. It seems like this and it went. But if you go back a few years ago, nothing foreshadowed them. With the exception of a number of currently fashionable chips, which dictate technology. For example, the popularization of smartphones has determined a long-term trend in the adaptability of sites.

Most trends do not pursue utilitarian goals. For example, video instead of text is a useful feature that makes the site clearer and easier to understand. But the polygonal mesh, parallax or diagonal geometry - pure water designer delights. Which, by the way, do not always benefit.

Where do the trends come from?

how designers steal each other's ideasTo understand the mechanism of the emergence of trends in web design, one must understand the psychology of web designers. These are specific specialists who do not like to repeat themselves in work and easily borrow ideas from each other. In such a supportive environment, new products spread virally.

Web designers love to be inspired by other people's beautiful sites. And willingly copy therefrom liked the chips. Copying is direct, but it happens with the development of ideas. A stable trend is obtained when an interesting idea can be modernized and used not only in the situation in which it originally originated. Such ideas can change significantly in the process of "evolution". But there are also such trends, which roam from the site to the site almost unchanged. Remember the menu-burger. The "burger" icon has become an icon!

Who comes up with trends

Trends arise spontaneously following random novelties in the field of web design. The exception is the functional trends following the technologies. Now AR / VR trend is predicted in web resources. This trend is due to intensive developments in the direction of augmented and virtual reality. It's unlikely that such a dynamic industry as web design will be left out.

Trends no one comes up with. It is impossible to start a trend, yes it does not need anyone. Trend - this is a fashion, this is the following of the novelty. So, it's more interesting to find out who comes up with all these novelties, which in some cases become mainstream.

New pieces of web design usually appear in talented designers and developers with sufficient budget. Transnational corporations like to show off sites and have financial opportunities for this. With proper skill you can create a HYIP around the technologies of your site and this is already an incentive for well-known brands. Some ideas are so popular with the public that they start imitating.

Ie, all the interesting things that you happened to see on the sites, someone once wired for the first time. And hardly at the same time he realized that he had determined a new trend for the design of sites for years to come. Unlike high fashion, where fashion trends are developed by the back of a handful of recognized couturiers, there is no absolute authority in web design. Even famous web designers are criticized equally with praise. The trend is born when web designers start using the novelty. Making them do this is impossible.

Trends no one comes up with. They arise by themselves. Come up with technology and anyone in the subject can become the progenitor of a new web-trend.

Do I need to follow the trends

Actually, we do not discuss trends with clients (although I was asked such questions), but what to do about it. Should I follow the trends? Or vice versa - in any case not be like the rest, so as not to get lost in the doubt of their kind?

client did not like the siteWe are trying to keep in the work of the golden mean. If we like the trend, the client and its use is optimal, then why not follow. But if the technology does not fit or the client is not enthusiastic about it, then there is no need to repair violence.

Trend, if we are discussing a fashionable trend, and not an effective technology, is a temporary phenomenon. Do not get hung up on them. In information sites in general, less to experiment, and more to think about convenience for users. In promo-sites, on the contrary, it is appropriate to stun special effects and catch the attention on the product.

Perhaps, the main thing that you need to achieve in the trend sites is the balance of the need and possibilities. Today, web designers have an extensive toolkit and implement even a part of it in one project - that means reloading the site. Look at the list of fashion trends in 2018 and imagine a site in which they were all connected. Theoretically possible, but in practice it is better to limit one or two technologies and subordinate them to your task. And ideally to improve the technology and, perhaps, to lay a new trend...

Report: Apple iPhones Have Slower Internet Speeds Compared To Samsung & Google

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 02:40

Apple fans might be disappointed upon hearing this news.

Your iPhone may not be providing you with internet speeds as fast as the other smartphones from its competitors in the market.

According to Bloomberg, data from Speedtest has concluded that the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and Apple’s most expensive flagship phone iPhone X have proven to be slower in their download speeds as compared to smartphones from Samsung and Google.

Having faster internet connections means that users are able to watch higher quality videos and load websites in a shorter time. Since smartphones are looking more alike to each other, handset companies tend to market their phones through “under-the-cover hardware feature.”

Speedtest’s results are derived from real-world conditions as opposed to the ones tested in a corporate lab. For example, the tests take into consideration cellular towers as well has network congestion that are capable of affecting internet speeds.

In the data, Samsung’s Galaxy S9 phone delivered an average download speed of 38.9 megabits per second after carrying out 102,000 tests, while the S9+ has an average speed of 38.4 Mbps, based on 169,000 phone connections.

The iPhone X delivered a figure of 29.7 Mbps based on 603,000 phone tests while the iPhone 8 Plus churned out an average of 29.4 Mbps and the iPhone 8, 28.6 Mbps. The Google Pixel 2 XL had an average speed of 33.9 Mbps while the smaller Pixel 2 had 34.4 Mbps.

Learn more about the various speed tests over at Bloomberg.

Pentagram Design’s Quick 4-Question Quiz Tells You What ‘Type’ You Are

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 02:39

Screenshot via Pentagram

Renowned design agency Pentagram has revived a quiz it created in 2009 that matches a typeface with your personality.

Similar to to the famous Myers-Briggs personality test, Pentagram’s version has 16 identities, each one shaped by four dominant traits.

Rather than names like ‘ENFP’ or ‘INTP’, this quiz tells you if you are ‘Baskerville Italic’, ‘Courier’, or ‘Dot Matrix’.

You’ll also be able to complete it pretty fast, as it only has four questions asking if you’re emotional or rational, assertive or understated, traditional or progressive, and relaxed or discipline.

One gripe shared by creatives who have recently taken the test, though, is that it runs on Flash, and hasn’t been updated for mobile.

If you’re in front of your desktop now, head here to take the quiz.

What type are you? Our classic quiz is back! Take it here: https://t.co/qVGtdchTAL pic.twitter.com/ccgHNXBop0

Does anyone use Linux in college? A little to many compromises for me.

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 02:32

Every year at least once or so I try to go full Linux on my laptop since I do not game on it. I have an HP x360 currently and I installed Kubuntu (I love kde) then installed the latest kernel available on Kubuntu. I found battery life to be vastly improved since the last time I used (comparable to Windows almost), but still there just isn't everything I need.

-Microsoft Office - Guys LibreOffice is not a complete alternative especially when you need to ensure compatibility when it comes to your grade. Not all the features are there, it is fantastic for being free but things are missing and honestly the UI is still trash. I settled for Office13 in Wine and it works okay, just text looks a little fuzzy. Teachers require I use PowerPoint, Excel for my business classes, and Word for papers.

-Adobe Acrobat Pro - Powerful software that I was luckily enough to get a key for from an ex-professor. I use ShareX to take screenshots and then use AcrobatPro to combine them, then use the OCR tool and I am able to CTRL + F a ton of information. I was able to try an alternative method, but it was clunky and honestly just didn't work as well.

-Giving up Photoshop sucks, but I know GIMP pretty okay. It still feels like a step down, although there was a ton of new features from the last time I tried it and it still amazing for being free.

-I need a program called Respondus Lockdown Browser to take tests and quizzes. The software detects when it is in a virtual machine so that option doesn't even work. Not really a fault of Linux desktop, but still doesn't change the fact I need to use this.

Other Minor Annoyances:

-Palm Rejections was off by default, seriously I know Linux doesn't hold your hand, but really?

-Touch screen stuff is kind of dumb. Firefox by default you can't scroll with your fingers and no double tap to open folders, and pinch to zoom was enabled everywhere. The only application that manged everything as expected was Chromium. People can brush this off and say "I don't use touchscreen anyways", but I like it and most average users probably expect things to work. Probably fixable with some tweaks though, just annoying though.

-No Google Drive client, I found a way to add in functionality in Dolphin, but still not all the features are there.

Closing:

I know it sounds like I am hating, but I really like Linux and am getting tired of Windows 10 constant nagging. I have used Ubuntu throughout middle school and high school and was always customizing my desktop and finding great free software, but I am older now and need the OS to do what I need it too. If I missing any software to replace the above let me know I am all ears. I can run a virtual machine because I do have 8 logical processors on this machine and 12gb of RAM, but I am not sure how much that takes a hit on battery life. I also know I can dual boot, but I have always been against this. If one OS can do everything I need it to, I will use that one OS. I know sounds dumb I am fine with a virtual machine, but not dual booting (I don't like restarting what can I say?). All in all though Linux is very close to fulfilling everything and I am pretty much almost done with college and will definitely give it another try soon. KDE is amazing and unbelievably lighter than I remember it. Sorry if this too long and too negative, just trying to get my experience out there. There is good things Linux offers of course, but that isn't what this post was about. I even flaired this as over-dramatic (;

LifeLock Bug Exposed Millions of Customer Email Addresses

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 02:31

Identity theft protection firm LifeLock — a company that’s built a name for itself based on the promise of helping consumers protect their identities online — may have actually exposed customers to additional attacks from ID thieves and phishers. The company just fixed a vulnerability on its site that allowed anyone with a Web browser to index email addresses associated with millions of customer accounts, or to unsubscribe users from all communications from the company.

The upshot of this weakness is that cyber criminals could harvest the data and use it in targeted phishing campaigns that spoof LifeLock’s brand. Of course, phishers could spam the entire world looking for LifeLock customers without the aid of this flaw, but nevertheless the design of the company’s site suggests that whoever put it together lacked a basic understanding of Web site authentication and security.

LifeLock’s Web site exposed customer email addresses by tying each customer account to a numeric “subscriberkey” that could be easily enumerated. Pictured above is customer number 55,739,477. Click to enlarge.

Pictured above is a redacted screen shot of one such record (click the image to enlarge). Notice how the format of the link in the browser address bar ends with the text “subscriberkey=” followed by a number. Each number corresponds to a customer record, and the records appear to be sequential. Translation: It would be trivial to write a simple script that pulls down the email address of every LifeLock subscriber.

Security firm Symantec, which acquired LifeLock in November 2016 for $2.3 billion, took LifeLock.com offline shortly after being contacted by KrebsOnSecurity. According to LifeLock’s marketing literature, the company has more than 55 million customer accounts.

KrebsOnSecurity was alerted to the glaring flaw by Nathan Reese, a 42-year-old freelance security researcher based in Atlanta who is also a former LifeLock subscriber. Reese said he discovered the data leak after receiving an email to the address he had previously used at LifeLock, and that the message offered him a discount for renewing his membership.

Clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email brought up a page showing his subscriber key, which was in the 55 million ballpark (55739477, to be exact). From there, Reese said, he wrote a proof-of-concept script that began sequencing numbers and pulling down email addresses. Reese said he stopped the script after it enumerated approximately 70 emails because he didn’t want to set off alarm bells at LifeLock.

“If I were a bad guy, I would definitely target your customers with a phishing attack because I know two things about them,” Reese said. “That they’re a LifeLock customer and that I have those customers’ email addresses. That’s a pretty sharp spear for my spear phishing right there. Plus, I definitely think the target market of LifeLock is someone who is easily spooked by the specter of cybercrime.”

LifeLock’s Web site is currently offline.

Misconfigurations like the one described above are some of the most common ways that companies leak customer data, but they’re also among the most preventable. Earlier this year, KrebsOnSecurity broke a story about a similar flaw at Panerabread.com, which exposed tens of millions of customer records — including names, email and physical addresses, birthdays and the last four digits of the customer’s credit card.

Website login screen design choice

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 01:47

So, I have been working on this website for a while, and now it's time to make a login screen. I don't know how to design it though. I don't think I should have the header, sidebar or the bottom part on the login screen, but it feels so empty without it. Any suggestions of how I should make it feel less empty?

Ubuntu for gaming

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 01:11

Hi /r/linux,

I've got something of a dilemma: I'm a programmer and CompSci student who also loves gaming. Up until now, I've stuck to Windows because it seems like the gaming OS, but Linux is just so much more convenient for anything Computer Science related...

Most of my peers either have Macs or Linux PC's, and I really like Linux for its customizability and security.

I'm getting a new PC soon, and the only thing keeping me tied to Windows 10 is that I want to game, and I want to game well. It'll be a laptop with a hexa-core Intel i7 and an NVidia GTX 1070 - I don't want to waste that kind of power.

Every search for gaming performance on Linux or gaming on Linux whatsoever comes up with a range of articles from 2010 - 2016, some saying that Linux is the worst platform for gaming; others claiming it's the best.

The only distro of Linux that I've used is Ubuntu, and I really like it; does anyone have any experience gaming on Linux? What was your experience? How was the performance.

I've been thinking about dual-booting but, aside from taking up precious disk space on my one 256GB SSD, it just seems super inconvenient to switch between the two: I'd like to pick one.

edit: People are asking about the games I play. I’m hoping that this wouldn’t be an important question and that I’d be able to play pretty much anything I can on Windows, but mostly Fortnite, PUBG, Arma 2&3, Civ 5, SimCity, GTA V, Minecraft (I know), and I’m interested in Fallout 76.
