cache – What do I do if my WordPress site is suddenly sanitizing portions of URLs it shouldn’t?

Nobody has touched wp-admin for this site in weeks. Suddenly, URLs are being sanitized in ways that break everything. The question marks of query parameters are being replaced with URL escape code %3F, which is obviously breaking nearly every script and stylesheet include that’s affected. The result is content like this:

<script type='text/javascript' src=""></script>

<script type='text/javascript' src='wp-includes/js/wp-embed.min.js%3Fver=5.4.1'></script>

Some, but not all URLs in the document are affected. Scripts and some anchor elements are affected.

In addition to this URL madness, it seems like portions of the main site are being included in every single page – i.e., the homepage’s markup is being embedded within wp-admin pages, etc.

The effect is that the site can essentially not be used – large dynamic portions of pages, especially the main landing page, simply fail to load or appear malformed due to missing scripts and stylesheets.

I should add that it’s nearly impossible to navigate wp-admin given the absurd state that it’s in at the moment, so I can’t really find my way around to do regular diagnostics.

How do I even begin to fix something like this? If this wasn’t a moneymaking site with plenty of content I haven’t even touched (‘the last guy’ decided to install dozens of plugins whose purposes are difficult to decipher, are possibly redundant, and might break everything if removed) I would gladly just reinstall everything.

I have attempted:

  • Removing a “WP Fastest Cache” plugin which, according to some, ‘breaks everything’ as of this month. Edit: It looks like this plugin is parasitic. After deactivating it, clearing my local cache, etc., pages still contain a comment marking them as having been cached by it…

  • Visiting and re-saving permalink settings in wp-admin as suggested by a comment I found in a similar issue elsewhere.

dnd 5e – Does multiclassing suddenly allow you to cast spells from Magic Initiate (or other similar features/feats) using more spell slots?

The following question already exists and explains that you can cast spells gained from the Magic Initiate feat if and only if the class you choose is the same as one of your own:

So let’s assume a Wizard take the Magic Initiate feat and learns the healing word spell with the Bard option of the feat. It is established already that they cannot cast this spell using their own spell slots, for some more supporting evidence classes received errata and the Wizard class now states the following under “Spellcasting” (the bolded word “Wizard” was added):

(…) The Wizard table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your wizard spells of 1st level and higher. (…)

With that established, I’m a bit confused what happens when this Wizard decides to multiclass into Bard; the multiclassing spellcasting rules state:

(…) You determine your available spell slots by adding together all your levels in the bard, cleric, druid, sorcerer, and wizard classes, and half your levels (rounded down) in the paladin and ranger classes. Use this total to determine your spell slots by consulting the Multiclass Spellcaster table. (…)

There is not longer a way to distinguish between Wizard spell slots and Bard spell slots. To me this implies the following:

Before multiclassing the Wizard could not use any of their spell slots to cast healing word, but by gaining one level of Bard they can now use all of them. Is this truly the case or have I missed a rule somewhere?

Moodle on a dedicated server suddenly shutting down

magento2 – Magento 2 – suddenly can no longer load the product – 404 site not found

I have been modifying the description of a certain product for hours now and I have been recording a lot during this time and it has always worked and showed me the updated description in the frontend after the reload but now I suddenly get 404 site not found in the frontend.

Not sure why. Other products work.

i tried php bin/magento indexer:reindex but it was not useful.

I also cleared the cache.

bugs – Suddenly the phone screens are changed and almost all the apps hang

I don't understand why, after a reboot, the screens on my phone changed (different application shortcuts and screen organization, etc.) and almost all of my applications stopped working crashes at launch). I also noticed that almost all of my apps ask me for permissions that I had already granted.

To give more context, I restarted because I had just changed the SIM card and as soon as the phone was on I joined a Wi-Fi network (I had not joined since a some time, say a month). I did not notice the change immediately after restarting the phone.

So the sequence of actions I did before I noticed that something was wrong was:

  • change the SIM card
  • to restart
  • join the Wi-Fi network

At this point, my phone looked like someone else's phone …

I'm thinking of resetting the phone to factory settings, but I would like to know why it happened in the first place. Anyone have any idea what could be causing it?

Windows 10 suddenly refuses to connect to my Bluetooth Airpod pros

I have had these airpods for 4 months now, and they haven't had many problems.

Starting yesterday, they started refusing to connect to my Windows 10 PC.

Different symptoms encountered:

  1. He refuses to connect despite dozens of attempts
  2. Sometimes it ended up connecting, but no sound came out
  3. Other times it connected but had an extremely choppy sound
  4. Other times, it connected but the sound from one ear was delayed from the other.
  5. I tried removing the device and rediscovering it, and the computer couldn't even detect the device for 30 minutes.
  6. One time, I couldn't even disconnect it because it said "can't disconnect the device"
  7. Other times, it would be very jerky for a few minutes, then would disconnect by itself.

All the things I have tried:

  1. Machine restarted (several times)
  2. Put the airpods in the case and on the back
  3. Cleaned the Airpod touch points and verified that they were both 100%
  4. Take my Bluetooth chip out of the office and put it back in 30 minutes later. I have tried many times
  5. Bluetooth support service restarted
  6. Deletion of the Bluetooth device and rediscovered dozens of times.

I tried to connect the airpods to my phone and laptop, none had any problems.

I always hated bluetooth because it never works, but it is the worst I have ever seen.

I spent 35 minutes trying to fix this yesterday and it finally worked. I woke up this morning and it's happening again.

Why does the proximity sensor suddenly light up?

At the top right is the "light / proximity sensor", according to the manual. It is clearly visible as white light in this photo – this is expected. What is NOT expected is that it is also clearly visible to the naked eye! It is a tiny red dot, impossible to photograph as such.

This sensor has never been seen before! Why is it visible now?

backup – USB3 external hard drive suddenly went slow

The machine is a MacMini mid-2012 which functions as a server (collocated in a remote data center).

The MacMini has an external USB hard drive to provide backup storage (WD Elements Portable 2 TB, powered by USB)

Every night the boot volume (internal SSD) is saved to the external drive using the Carbon Copy Cloner application (with automated task).

From the task history, I can see that the bakcup normally takes around 30 minutes.

The last backup lasted 1 h 45 min.

Although no errors have been reported by CCC, I wonder:

  • what could have caused this?
  • is this an imminent failure signal?
  • what tools can i use to investigate the problem?

I am sure that:

  • the problem is with the external hard drive, not the internal SSD (because the hard drive is then saved on a remote Mac and this operation also took much longer)

  • hard drive is not full (about 50% available)

  • there is almost no load / activity on the server because the nackup takes place late at night when nobody is using the server

Why does Trump suddenly act like he cares about coronavirus attacks?

I recently read an article on Trump. Trump calls the coronavirus the Chinese virus. It turns out that I agree with what he said about it, then the Chinese leader of the hole @ $$ from China tried to defend China.

The World Health Organization is a joke. Whoever is responsible for this organization defends China. What disgrace !!!

The coronavirus was first announced from China, and now I think the Chinese leader has said that it never came from China. WOW ….. Something is wrong with the Chinese people who live in China.

The Chinese leader said that something like China had given the rest of the world time to prepare for the virus. Yes, it is true, but what the Chinese leader will not admit is his fault for not having prevented the spread of the coronavirus in China. It should be obvious that if 1 person is infected with a virus, others will also get it. Chinese police who live in China have done nothing in a timely manner to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Instead, they extended the treatment for coronavirus !!!

Now the rest of the world is suffering more because of China.
