comment Ideas underpinning SPSite and SPWeb
All the child webs inherit/use these things from the root web of the site. I know this wasn't much, but I hope it helps a little in your understanding of how SP works.

... but may have little or no privileges on another site collection, and also they are not Farm admins, so they can't mess with services, etc. 3) As you probably have figured out, SP is organized around a concept of things inheriting down hierarchically. When you create a new site collection, the root SPWeb is provisioned with certain things that child SPWeb objects do not get, like the web part gallery, and the default display templates in the master page gallery. In addition certain other settings that apply to all SPWebs in a site collection are controlled from the root web of an SPSite.

comment Ideas underpinning SPSite and SPWeb
since I can't post a real answer I will try to answer in comments. As Eric said, site collections are logical boundaries in the web application. As far as what that actually means, here are some examples: 1) site collections are the point where you can scale out into different content databases. A site collection can either be included in the main content DB for the web app, or be created with it's own content DB. SPWebs cannot have their own DB. 2) There is the concept of Site Collection Admins, who have admin privileges throughout all the SPWebs within the SPSite... [cont.]

If the alert is not signaled when it is active, are you sure the file is even getting loaded properly?

comment JS Link View Overriding for date
What exactly are you expecting to see? With the code you have provided, <#= ctx.CurrentItem.Contractends #> will just render the date with whatever the default format is (for instance m/d/yyyy). Therefore it will appear as though your code was not applied, even though it was.

comment How can I capture a button click event on a dynamically created button?
That works, but it seems very counter-intuitive to me. If the original button object was destroyed, and I have to create a new one on post-back, shouldn't the click event somehow be related to the old object? How is the click event that came from the old object now related to the new object I'm creating during the post-back?

comment CSWP Sorting by Date
@RanserSingh is correct, StartDate is one of the few OOB fields that doesn't have a Managed Property set up by default, so you have to set it up yourself (and make sure it's Sortable) to make it available in the CSWP.
