Before publishing content, many authors and editors like to double-check that it looks the way they expect it to look on the front-end. Live Look lets you do just that, and it’s pretty easy to set up.
Fortunately, the parameter
include_jquery can help save the day.
The Secure Mode setting in ExpressionEngine serves a very important function and is often misunderstood. Secure Mode ensures that all forms processed by ExpressionEngine came from the visitor who was given the form and not some other source that may be trying to do very bad things. If the call is not coming from the visitor it was generated for, ExpressionEngine will reject it.
At its most basic level, this feature helps prevent spam bots from bombing your site with automated data as they try to add unwelcome viagra ads to your innocent comments section. However, the really important duty of Secure Mode is stopping cross-site request forgery attacks which include not only common spammers but also malicious external attacks.

For the past two months, I have been working on a site for my daughter that will help her work through her emotions. I am loosely calling it an “app” that is built using ExpressionEngine. The basic idea of the app is to present my daughter with a series of questions that help her determine how she feels, and then present some healthy ways to cope with the emotion she chose. Before Grid, I was showing all of the healthy coping suggestions on one page and she would chose from the long list. With Grid, I am able to put several answers into just one entry, and with pagination in Grid, I can present one coping suggestion at a time which makes for a much better experience.

I worked on a project recently where I needed to offer a view all option in addition to the usual pagination links. Is that possible with ExpressionEngine? Of course! And since it provides a great example of what’s possible with embedded templates, I thought it’d be fun to show it off here.
