Fix jQuery and WordPress “url.indexOf is not a function” error

So, you have updated your WordPress to 5.6 and something strange happened to your website? You open the inspector (Command+Option+C (Mac) or Control+Shift+C (Windows, Linux, Chrome OS), and you find a red message like url.indexOf is not a function error ? Wtf Javascript? How to fix it?

WordPress 5.6 comes with an updated jQuery version: 3.5.1.

WordPress 5.5 stopped enabling the jQuery Migrate helper script by default, and with the upcoming release of WordPress 5.6, the bundled version of jQuery will be upgraded (from 1.12.4-wp to 3.5.1).

What this involves for users, is that any plugin or theme that previously relied on the jQuery Migrate tool to work as expected (due to being older code, or just a missed update to deprecated functions), may now have unexpected behaviors.

make.wordpress.org

.load, .unload, and .error, deprecated since jQuery 1.8, are no more. Use .on() to register listeners.

So the correct way is to change in your javascript all your occurrences of

$(window).load(function() { ... });

into something like

$(window).on('load', function() { ... });

But sometimes errors are not related to your own code, right? So what to do?
Try adding this code before other javascript scripts and after jQuery inclusion.

jQuery.fn.load = function(callback){ jQuery(window).on("load", callback) };

Reload web page and beep

Sometimes you need, without any plugins, to periodically reload a web page and get notified by something like an acoustic signal.

You can use this simple script (copy and paste in the inspector console or use Sources – > Snippets to save and reuse it)

const reloadMinutes = 15

function beep() {
    var snd = new Audio("data:audio/wav;base64,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");

Use reloadMinutes to set the reload time.

P.S. Some web sites have protections to avoid to be embedded in IFRAMEs, watch out.

javascript: the beginning and end of an image along its center

Javascript snippet that detects the beginning and end of an image along its center, alpha supported.

Parameters: image id (without ‘#’)

Returns an object with:
– start (first non trasparent/not white pixel from center top)
– end (first not trasparent/not white pixel from center bottom)
– image width
– image height

 

function getRealImageYStartEnd($imageId){
    var img = document.getElementById($imageId);
    var canvas = document.createElement('canvas');
    canvas.width = img.width;
    canvas.height = img.height;
    canvas.getContext('2d').drawImage(img, 0, 0, img.width, img.height);
    var context = canvas.getContext('2d');
    var middle = Math.floor(img.width/2);
    var startImage = 0;
    var endImage = img.height;
    for (i = 0; i < img.height; i++){
        var data = context.getImageData(Math.floor(img.width/2), i, 1, 1).data;
        if (data[0] !== 0 && data[1] !== 0 && data[1] !== 0 && data[3] !== 0){
            startImage = i;
            break;
        }
    }
    for (i = img.height; i >= 0; i--){
        var data = context.getImageData(Math.floor(img.width/2), i, 1, 1).data;
        if (data[0] !== 0 && data[1] !== 0 && data[1] !== 0 && data[3] !== 0){
            endImage = i;
            break;
        }
    }
    return {start: startImage, end: endImage, width: img.width, height: img.height};

WordPress 4.8.3 + ACF + get_posts with meta_query

Here in Papion headquarters we love using ACF.
Advanced Custom Fields is one of the best WordPress plugins for custom field management.

Recently, with the new WordPress 4.8.3, a change was made in the prepare query to the database.

Instead of characters like % now we have placeholders like {1872368126381726387126381276381726318723} (for more information see code).

It does not involve any major issues, except when we use ACF in combination with get_posts and metaquery to search for post based on repeater fields that have meta_key in fieldgrup_%_field format like “fieldgrup_0_field”, “fieldgrup_1_field”, etc.

One of the solutions ACF proposes is (source)

function my_posts_where( $where ) {
  $where = str_replace("meta_key = 'locations_%", "meta_key LIKE 'locations_%", $where);
  
  return $where;
}
add_filter('posts_where', 'my_posts_where');

However, with the update, instead of the “%” character, we find ourselves with a numeric placeholder, so this code should be changed so that the comparison is done with the query without placeholders:

function my_posts_where( $where ) {
  $where = str_replace("meta_key = 'locations_%", "meta_key LIKE 'locations_%", $where);
  
  return $where;
}
add_filter('posts_where', 'my_posts_where');

Iubenda, check consent given in javascript

    var pair = pairs[i].split("=");
	if(pair[0].indexOf('_iub_cs-s') !== -1 || pair[0].indexOf('_iub_cs') !== -1 ) {
    	return true;
    }
  }
  return false;
}
var checkCookie = true;
var checkCookieInterval = setInterval(function(){
	if(iubendaConsentGiven()){
		console.log('ok');
		clearInterval(checkCookieInterval);
    }
}, 1000);
