I wrote the following article a long time ago on my main domain, but recently I had a reader send in a question that this article addresses. So I’m putting this article here so that it is easier for readers to find in the future….
In the past, when you selected a language, you were selecting an application programming interface (API) as well. So if you decided to use C++, you automatically were selecting the MFC class libraries as well as ATL and STL. You don’t really need to know what these initials stand for, just understand they represent a complete set of functionality that did not have to be written by the programmer.
I have over 100 websites now and the danger exists that one of them might get hacked.
This wouldn’t be a big problem if I knew about it. I have backups in place.
But how do you keep track of 100 web sites so that you know if one or more have been hacked so you can do something about it?
Over the weekend I got a question about how to prevent postbacks on buttons from within jQuery tabs. But the question really isn’t specific to jQuery. There are other times when you might not want a button to post back. So how do you do this?
There are several ways you might accomplish this depending on what your goal is.
