internet explorer – How to enable IE mode in Edge browser (Version 83.0.478.61 and up) for a site?

Is there an easy way to enable IE mode on the new Edge (Chromium) browser.
Recent version have removed the flag for IE integration and this functionality seems to be pretty well hidden and obscured with ‘special’ flags and xml compatility lists.
The best ‘guide’ that I could find is this one:

But, even with the guide, I was unable to determine how to correctly set up the ‘sites.xml’ to work correctly. The microsoft documentation for IE mode seems to be a maze of links leading so some ‘Enterprise Edge templates’ which I could not figure out what they represent or even if they apply to me (I’m not in any ‘enterprise’).
Does anyone have a simple tutorial or step by step instructions on how to set up the IE mode in a non-active-directory environment?


How can I set up this plugins on my site

I want to create a site where users can be rewarded by the tasks they performed on a site, and I came along with the plugin called “Sumo Reward Point System” and “wooCommerce plugin” which capable of doing the job for me.

My problem here is (creating user registration, user dashboards,etc) the way I have to customize it or integrate it to give me what I’m looking for. The site is an income site, my aim is to reward users that performed a specific giving task on the site: live publish a post, share a post, view a blog posts, comment on a post, etc.

I seriously need a help to complete the project.

If you can share with me where or how I can get such, I will be grateful..

y u no do it?

Advertise virtually anything here, with CPM banner ads, CPM email ads and CPC contextual links. You can target relevant areas of the site and show ads based on geographical location of the user if you wish.

Starts at just $1 per CPM or $0.10 per CPC.

Should a redirect to external site have a delay?

There are many ways to redirect a user to an external site. In my case, I use it for “Universal Book Links”. These are links that redirect to a specific country-based store, using the user’s IP address to determine their geolocation.

My redirect goes to an internal page, with a delay of 10 seconds before the redirect happens. I do this to alert the user that a redirect will be done, and also to provide an external link in case the automatic redirect is blocked.

I’ve based my ‘delay-before-redirect’ actions on what I have seen other ‘big’ sites do. Some do it for privacy reasons (to alert users that they are going off-site).

The questions are: should the delay and redirect notification happen? Is 10 seconds too long? Does this delay enhance the user experience? Is there any reason not to have the 10 second delay?

I realize this is not a technical question, but more of a design and user interface question. But a user of my services questioned why the delay – why not just redirect immediately?

Why do I receive phishing mails from my bank shortly after visiting the bank’s site?

Sometimes I realize that I receive phishing emails just after doing some operations on the web.

For instance, I was trying to pay taxes from my bank account (website was trusted 100%, I checked the signature), just after a few minutes I receive a phishing email from bank with a fake email address.

Timing was very close with this operation I have performed. I had the same feeling in the past with other phishing emails, but I always thought was just a case. I wonder if there are some way / chance that this is not just a coincidence.

Is it possible to retrieve a web template (not a site template) in SharePoint Online?

A web template is persisted in the SharePoint database as a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Solution, which is a file that has a .wsp extension. The .wsp file is stored in the Solutions Gallery of the site collection. The solution can also be deployed as a sandboxed solution.

Users create web templates on the Save as Template page (or through code that uses the SaveAsTemplate method of the Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb class).

Source: Web Templates

Issue: Unfortunately, the SaveAsTemplate method is not available in SharePoint Online.


In SharePoint Online, you can use Get-PnPProvisioningTemplate using PnP PowerShell to generate a provisioning site template from a web.

Few of my google search results redirect to the same (or similar?) spam site

This is not really a problem at the moment, but I am asking because I am trying to find out if this is something worth looking into

I do all my searches in chrome. I have not been able to test this in other browsers, but I am interested in chrome as that is what I use most. A few times in my google searches, I get search results that look like normal results, and the page names sound as if they would be something related to what I am looking for, but clicking them always redirects to the same type of spam page (I am not sure if they are all the same page or not, but they’re definitely similar)

For example, one of the results for searching for “nlms feedback cancellation android” in google is (hiding for possible spam link)

which vaguely looks like it might contain what I need, but when I click it it redirects to this spam page:

The page is usually a blank page, or shows a dialog box, or contains a gif and claims I have won some prize or something similar. It does not automatically download anything as far as I can tell, and I have never clicked anything on this page. I have seen this page enough times to recognise it and usually just close the tab as soon as I see the redirect on the browser address bar. Usually I would just ignore such links and move on but I have seen this particular type of spam page so often that I am wondering if it is not just a coincidence. At one time I got 3~4 of this same spam page among all my google results, and a lot of the times it is also on the first google results page. I do not log into chrome or google for doing my searches. I do not have any extensions installed or any malware/adware, and chrome usually updates automatically.

Is this just coincidence that I have seen this particular spam page so many times, or is there a possibility something is going on? Since I have clicked such search results before, is it possible google feeds other similar results to me?I had assumed google doesn’t deliberately feed spam pages as search results, but may be I am wrong. It could be that the servers containing the type of information I am looking for are all prone to being attacked by the same type of adware, but I somehow feel that’s not something likely. Again, I would like to stress that it’s not like I am getting a lot of these in every google search. One or two such results pop up every now and then, and I am only looking for confirmation that this is just a coincidence.
