comment SharePoint 2013 Rest API OData Query
Ok, so the user selects "Mumbai(Mum)" and you want to make a REST call to retrieve items with "Mumbai" OR "Mum"?

I don't think you've explained the problem you're trying to solve well then. Are you trying to filter based on a selected value?

Can't you just 'and' or 'or' the two conditions, as in this post from Sahil Malik? blah.winsmarts.com/…

comment What are the advantages of using SP Services?
There are actually a lot of things available in SharePoint's SOAP Web Services that CSOM and REST don't yet expose. Take a look at what I've wrapped in SPServices (spservices.codeplex.com/…) vs. the available REST endpoints in SharePoint 2013(msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/…), for example. The key is to understand what you are trying to accomplish, not which library is "cooler".

comment Did the hidden input for dropdowns change?
I haven't had any reports of the input/select (I call these "complex dropdowns") changing in SharePoint 2010. I'm not doubting you, but usually I hear about this stuff loud and clear. I'd suggest SPServices 2014.01 and jQuery 1.11.1, as Pail recommended.

comment jQuery library that uses json within a sub-web
It's very hard to tell with the snippet you've posted. I'd just try to get the $.getJSON() call running first. Are you sure that merged.oc_json_file contains a valid URL to the file? The file also must be valid JSON for $.getJSON() to work. If there 's a syntax error, it will fail. Finally, try stepping through your code and inspecting the variables to see what you get back. You can also use Firebug or Fiddler to look at the Net traffic.

comment Using REST for a DVWP DataSource with Office365
I dropped it after a while. It was more of a POC effort. These days I would definitely do this with JavaScript (note the original date).

comment Get List Item ID from NewForm.aspx
SPRedirectWithID should have worked. If you have time, could you please post the issue you had at SPServices.codeplex.com/discussions?

comment Path to jQuery file for SharePointWebControls:ScriptLink
They still work, don't they? I seem to remember using them just fine, but I could be mistaken.

comment CORS with SPServices + jQuery
You use the listName and webURL combination, as you are doing. You don't need to worry about CORS if you are requesting data within the same Site Collection. In fact, if that's the case, you should use a relative URL, like "/project".
