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?

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".

comment SPservices radiobutton click event
From the looks of it, the script you posted isn't all there. I'd suggest you clean it up and only post the bit you are having an issue with.

comment How to get publishing page friendly URL in Data View Web Part (DVWP)?
That's correct, @GuilhermeSehn. The CSWP uses the search index. No, you cannot use Display Templates with the CQWP; it works the same as before.

Arsalan: There's pretty good documentation about Content Search Web Parts out there. I'd suggest starting here: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj163789.aspx

console.log() isn't a good debugging technique in IE.

comment Get the ID and Name from multiple Client side People pickers to store in a list
Feel free to post questions about the function on the Codeplex site. It looks like you know what you're doing with script, so you may just want to pluck out the function and adapt it.

comment How do I use some form of version control on SharePoint Designer created forms?
Yeah, there are a lot of variables in all of this. Ideally you're working on the page only in the UI or in SharePoint Designer at any given time, not both. If it's both, you can get yourself into trouble.

comment Web Site which displays announcements lists, other lists from Sharepoint 2007
Windows auth would just work. The SOAP Web Services are native and always on.

comment Pages library is not getting created when activating publishing feature
How are you creating the template? What happens? Do you get an error? Are there any odd messages on the pages? You'll need to say more to get good responses.

comment Form / template help
You've just restated what you originally said. Why do you want the forms online? What are you trying to accomplish? A Wiki is meant for many users to edit collaboratively, so I don't see how that could be the right answer.

comment Picture Library with custom url for every image
Can you explain more? All files in libraries have a unique URL out of the box.

comment how to enable/disable a dropdown based on value in another dropdown in sharepoint 2013
Almost there. It should be $("#ddl2").prop("disabled", true); Properties are binary: they are either on or off, thus true or false. As of jQuery 1.6, you can't use .attr(). See: api.jquery.com/prop

You should use .prop() for disabled rather than .attr().
