comment Does Sharepoint 2013 really have a jquery conflict with $?
This is more of a religious war than a technical one. There are many opinions about whether to use jQuery, go with pure JavaScript, etc. You should make decisions based on your requirements, skills, and technology stack.

comment $().SPServices.SPArrangeChoices saving not working
What happens when you save? Do you get an error? Are the values saved incorrectly?

comment Create multiple items in another list using PreSaveAction
Swapping out the button wouldn't make the new items save at exactly the same time, though. You've still got a lag there.

comment AJAX/Rest only returning 100 items instead of full list
You can also set top to some number greater than 100 to retrieve more items in the initial call. I think that values can go as high as 1000, but I'm not positive.

Without testing on my end, this looks like the right way to go.

comment Is mQuery stable to use instead of using jquery in Sharepoint 2013 and higher?
@Danny, that seems a bit harsh. Every tool has a purpose, and jQuery can speed up your developoment time, should you choose to use it. If you'd prefer to use pure JavaScript, that's great, but that wasn't the original question.

comment CAML Query Where (x AND y) OR Z
You need to squint and turn your head sideways to get CAML right. It actually makes a lot of sense once you get it, and its odd structure makes it easier to build up programmatically.

comment .find().filternode().each() v/s .find().each()
No, it has nothing to do with cross-origin requests. When you use SPFilterNode, you already have the data back from the server. Browsers other than IE won't (or at least wouldn't at the time) provide the expected results for .find("z:row").

You did! Sorry about that.

comment Create SharePoint Contacts List From AD
You don't have to use My Sites to take advantage of user profiles. For SharePoint to really work, you must be syncing the data from AD already, so you've got that data to work with.

comment REST API filter by start and end dates using 'today'
Unless I'm missing something, this doesn't seem to work in SharePoint 2013 on premises. Or do we need to be at a certain CU or something? I'm about to revert back to SPServices and CAML because I know I can get recurring events, etc. as well as filter by date(s).

comment How to update the name of an attachment from a list item (if possible, with SPServices)?
It sounds like you should be using a Document Library with a template attached for a Content Type instead of list attachments.

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"?

comment SharePoint 2013 Rest API OData Query
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).

SPRedirectWithID should have worked. If you have time, could you please post the issue you had at SPServices.codeplex.com/discussions?
