forms – Are there any significant implications to re-design a settings page?

We’re doing a migration for some of our settings pages for our website at my current job and we’re also trying to hit an external deadline. The way the current settings pages are laid out is a tabbed format. You press a tab and it opens up the account info settings like username and password. you hit another tab and it opens up the subscriptions settings (it’s literally only 1 setting). You hit another tab and open up 1 setting.

I was thinking of minimizing work and putting all the settings on 1 page for the initial phase of the migration (it’s about 1 full page and 1/4 page scroll down (however, more in mobile devices) and then iterating on the design and UX later. Now, let’s keep in mind this is a settings page on our website and not our main product. (the simplified new settings page looks like the screenshot below.

enter image description here

Will this new layout of 1 page for settings have a significant impact on our users in terms of them unsubscribing from our service or deciding not to use our service if they newly signed up?

For more context, here’s a close example of what the current settings looks like below –I can’t post the actual design we have.

remote access – How can I keep my app and desktop settings between VDI logins with VMware Horizon?

I routinely use VMware Horizon to connect to remote customer systems

And every time I login, I have to reset my:

  • background
  • startup app settings (eg OneDrive, Outlook, Teams)
  • default browser preferences

How can I KEEP those preferences between logins?

Is this an administrative setting? If not, what can I do as an end-user?

nikon – Same manual camera settings under continuous light but some pictures are yellow and some are blue

I recently did a product photoshoot.
After a few pictures, I noticed that some of the photos are warm coloured, some of them are cold. I have not touched the object, my camera was on a tripod, and I used the same settings (in manual mode) for every picture.
It is really annoying because I need to create a GIF from about 15 photos and some of them are yellow, some are blue. Even some photos turned out half yellow / half blue on the same picture.

Here is an example showing the different colour temperature. They are shot with the same settings, same light, same camera, same tripod, etc…:

enter image description here

For the shoot, I used two softboxes (continuous light) and they remained at the same place for the whole time. These are my settings (identical for all pictures):

  • Focal length: 50 mm
  • Aperture: f/5.6
  • Shutter speed: 1/320
  • White abalnce: 5260 K
  • Spot metering

I was wondering if the problem was that I had my camera set to spot metering mode, but I am not sure.

Any suggestions or ideas why is this happening?

I shoot in RAW, so I know that I can fix this in Photoshop, but it’s a lot of work with 15-20 images. Especially that it says that the yellow and the blue images have the exact same level of temperature and tint. So I probably have to reduce the temperature of the yellow one to match with the blue images but that’s very complicated, because not all the images are the same.

How to submit the settings api data by ajax on theme options page

Instead of reloading i need to submit the data by ajax. it is because theme options having customized tab sections and all the fields are in array in a single field of settings api.

//Displaying and saving options data
function amna_theme_options_page () {
settings_errors('theme_amna'); 
?>
<div class="wrap flex-tab">
    <form action='options.php' method='post' class="amna-fields">
        <?php 
        settings_fields( 'amna-fields-group' );
        amna_do_settings_sections('theme_amna'); ?>
        <p class="submit"><input type="submit" class="button-primary" value="<?php _e( 'Save changes', 'amna_save_settings' ); ?>" /></p>
    </form>
</div>
<?php 
}

Here is my function to wrapping the fields in html not table

function amna_do_settings_sections($page) {
global $wp_settings_sections, $wp_settings_fields;

if ( !isset($wp_settings_sections) || !isset($wp_settings_sections($page)) )
    return;

foreach( (array) $wp_settings_sections($page) as $section ) {
    echo "<h3>{$section('title')}</h3>n";
    call_user_func($section('callback'), $section);
    if ( !isset($wp_settings_fields) ||
         !isset($wp_settings_fields($page)) ||
         !isset($wp_settings_fields($page)($section('id'))) )
            continue;
    echo '<div class="settings-form-wrapper">';
    amna_do_settings_fields($page, $section('id'));
    echo '</div>';
 }
 }

function amna_do_settings_fields($page, $section) {
global $wp_settings_fields;

if ( ! isset( $wp_settings_fields( $page )( $section ) ) ) {
    return;
}

foreach ( (array) $wp_settings_fields($page)($section) as $field ) { ?>
    <div class="settings-form-row flex-tab">
        // Here is my tab defined by not posting right now
        <?php if ( !empty($field('args')('label_for')) )
            echo '<p><label for="' . $field('args')('label_for') . '">' .
                $field('title') . '</label><br />';
        else
        call_user_func($field('callback'), $field('args'));
        echo '</p>';
    echo '</div>';
}

}

So instead of reloading i want to submit the fields value by ajax.

Restricted apertures using manual settings on Canon 5d3

I have full aperture range on my Canon 5D3 in Av and tested with different lenses, but in Manual, the camera controls only vary between 3 f stops and not always the same stops.
Option, it seems to me are:

  1. an incorrect setting buried in a submenu.
  2. Firmware error.
  3. Hardware or other.

If 2. above, is that fixable with a firmware update/reinstall?

Any suggestions gratefully received.

I am studying Views, and I’ve already figured out all the settings, but I don’t understand why these three settings are needed. I marked with arrows the settings that I don’t understand.
