Can I just hold my Spellcasting Focus, instead of a material (with a price) that I own, to cast a spell?

Let’s say that I want to cast Soul Cage. I know that I need the tiny silver cage worth 100gp. Can I just have it attached to my belt and cast the spell using my Spellcasting focus, or do I need to hold specifically the tiny silver cage?

I’m a Hexblade Warlock with a glaive and the Improved Pact Weapon feature, wich makes my summoned glaive my Spellcasting Focus. I wonder if there’s a way to kill an enemy with my glaive then use my reaction to cast Soul Cage.

Source link plugin – show just anchor / link

I implemented a small source link plugin on my WordPress website via the following codes.

Single.php:

                        <?php global $  post, $  pages, $  page;  $  total = count( $  pages ); // Link źródłowy if ( $  total < 2 || $  page === $  total ) :          if ( $  url = get_post_meta( $  post->ID, '_source_link', true ) ) :         $  label = get_post_meta( $  post->ID, '_source_link_label', true );         $  label = $  label ? $  label : $  url;     ?>         <div class="source-link">             <b>Źródło:</b> <a href="<?php echo esc_url( $  url ); ?>" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><?php                 echo esc_html( $  label ); ?></a>         </div>     <?php endif;  endif;  ?> 

Functions.php:

add_action( 'add_meta_boxes', 'wpse_source_link' );   add_action( 'save_post', 'wpse_source_link_save' );   function wpse_source_link() {      add_meta_box(         'source_link',         __( 'Link źródłowy', 'myplugin_textdomain' ),          'wpse_source_meta_box',         'post',         'side'     ); }   function wpse_source_meta_box( $  post ) {      wp_nonce_field( plugin_basename( __FILE__ ), 'myplugin_noncename' );       echo '<label for="source-link">Link</label> ';   echo '<input type="text" id="source-link"" name="source_link" value="'.     get_post_meta( $  post->ID, '_source_link', true ) .'" size="25" />';    echo '<label for="source-link-label">Nazwa strony</label> ';   echo '<input type="text" id="source-link-label"" name="source_link_label" value="'.     get_post_meta( $  post->ID, '_source_link_label', true ) .'" size="25" />'; }   function wpse_source_link_save( $  post_id ) {    if ( defined( 'DOING_AUTOSAVE' ) && DOING_AUTOSAVE )        return;    if ( ! wp_verify_nonce( $  _POST['myplugin_noncename'], plugin_basename( __FILE__ ) ) )       return;     if ( current_user_can( 'edit_post', $  post_id ) ) {        update_post_meta( $  post_id, '_source_link', sanitize_text_field( $  _POST['source_link'] ) );       update_post_meta( $  post_id, '_source_link_label', sanitize_text_field( $  _POST['source_link_label'] ) );     } } 

As you can see there are two fields: Link źródłowy (Source link) and Nazwa strony (website name – anchor). However, at this moment this plugin only works, when both fields have some text inside. Is there any way to make it work also with just anchor/link? I mean, if two fields are completed it should show anchor with link, but if just anchor has some text in it, then it should show only anchor. Same goes for link.

Does anyone know how to make it work like that? To be honest I’m a newbie and I have no idea.

Browser loses connectivity to website. Switching browsers helps, but just temporarily [closed]

This problem shows up when I have poor WiFi connectivity, or no WiFi. I’m using my android phone, with chrome browser, to connect to my website (LAMP), and limping along with poor response, but happy and productive. But then I can’t reach the website at all. I can reach other websites but not my website. I’ve tried closing my chrome and reopening it. If I wait several minutes I can usually get back to my website. However, my application is time-critical and this delay is very disruptive. I’ve found that when I can’t get through on chrome, if I immediately switch to the Samsung browser (also chromium-based) I can regain access to the my website right away. Then after several minutes, I might lose access again. I can immediately regain access if I switch back to chrome. So the problem is not chrome itself. Perhaps if I had 2 instances of chrome, say chrome and chrome-beta, I could switch between those successfully. But I haven’t tried that experiment. In long sessions, with very bad connectivity, I have to switch browsers about every 5 minutes.

It seems like the bad connectivity causes Apache to temporarily ignore me. Perhaps some mechanism whereby the socket (or some other intermediate-entity, like a PHP worker) is marked "bad" but not closed. So that intermediate-entity has to timeout before the same browser can connect again. Perhaps by switching browsers, a new intermediate-entity is opened and the old one abandoned. I’m just guessing at a possible mechanism.

I’ve looked at apache error log, apache access log, php error log and php-fpm error log. I don’t see anything that coincides with my connectivity problem. My php max_execution_time is set to 120. I’m not hitting that as far as I can tell.

Can a caster of Dispel Magic just target a specific spell on a creature? [duplicate]

Dispel Magic says (emphasis mine):

Choose one creature, object, or magical effect within range. Any spell of 3rd level or lower on the target ends. For each spell of 4th level or higher on the target, make an ability check using your spellcasting ability. The DC equals 10 + the spell’s level. On a successful check, the spell ends.

At high level play, I’ve found that players often have long-term buff spells in effect (i.e. Heroes Feast, Mindblank, etc.), which are a major factor in them being able to survive.

If one of these characters is affected by a save or suck kind of spell (i.e. Mental Prison, Irresistable Dance, etc.), the need to remove that spell becomes imperative.

With this in mind, can a caster of Dispel Magic target only a negative spell under the assumption that it is a discrete ‘magical effect’ subject to removal? Or must they target the ‘creature’ and risk removing all spells, both positive and negative?

For reference, we see a potentially unique ‘magical effect’ in this question about Yeenoghu’s flail. This effect is similar to a spell in its function (target is affected by the Confusion spell if they fail the save), but has clear differences from a spell because the spell would require Yeenoghu’s concentration and have a different duration. Conversely, this answer suggests that a ‘magical effect’ only applies to things that wholly separated from the creature.

Does doubling up on Rope and Manacles increase DC or just take multiple checks to escape?

My D&D group is new and we are all still getting used to playing the game and are running through the Starter Set adventure.

During this adventure we end up capturing a Wizard and we bound and gag him. My character being paranoid made sure to attach manacles to him and also to use two different lengths of 50ft rope to ensure that he would not be able to break free. During the return back to town the DM had him keep rolling strength checks against the manacles and rope and one by one he kept breaking through them and I ended up having to borrow the entire party’s supply of rope to keep him secure because he kept breaking through them. By the time I was able to deliver him he was wrapped in 200 ft of rope and looked like more rope than man after breaking my manacles and two different lengths of rope.

I know that the rules say that the DC of Hempen rope is 17 but I still think that in any real world sense it is ridiculous to think that this Wizard can Samson his way through each individual rope while also being held by several other lengths of rope and a set of manacles. One would think that the weight of the ropes alone would keep him in check.

I guess my question is that is there any precedent for the DC being raised when you are attaching multiple different factors into keeping a prisoner secure or are you just supposed to roll each rope individually?

Edit: My DM has responded to my post and it looks like I didn’t have all of the information originally

“I rolled 2 rolls per day of travel. This was his daily attempt to free himself from his bindings with disadvantage. He got 2 Nat 20’s the day he broke the manacles and a 19 & 20 to break free of the rope. His Str modifier is -1, but 18 still clears the rope’s DC. He had disadvantage due to the leather armor and sheer volume of rope around him He also had to break the manacles before he could even start trying to work at the rope, since you did put those on him first”

Should I keep running my old projects as Active, Or just Verify

Greetings, friends.
Wondering if I should keep running some of my oldest set of GSA projects as active…and not just set to Verify only…
I mean those oldest projects where I just link to my money site directly with SER.
I don’t think I need to stop running old projects where SER creates links at T2 T3 .. .. just those pointing RIGHT at the  money site.
…and JUST those projects, of course, that I have newer replacements for with my own T1s, either on PBNs, a few legit listings, and various social media and other content platforms, and hopefully some authority links.
Is it ever OK to link directly to a money site with SER?
I have Asia Virtual Solutions active, blog comment, directory, forum, guestbook,Image COntent, Microblog, Pingback, Referrer, RSS, Social Bookmarks, Trackbacks, Web 2.0, Wiki running.
I also have a separate set of older projects that post to anything that will accept an article pointing at the money site. The articles are OK. Spun, hand-written, reviewed spintax for accuracy. On those I have Asia Virtual Solutions (projects to MS that use articles), articles, blog comments, pingbacks,referrers, social bookmarks, social networks, and wikis that use articles when posting.
This is how I chose to set up older projects. Are *either* the first set of projects, or the second that use articles,  appropriate as a T1 pointing at  a money site? And if not, what SHOULD I be using SER-generated backlinks? I’m *SURE* some will suggest SEREngines. I’ve haven’t used SEREngines since the last version, so if someone could explain I would very much appreciate it. Trying to do SEO right, finally. No more continuing poor practices that are just from a time I didn’t know better.
Should I *NOT* have been doing this? Is it considered “spam practices” by Google? At some point, I came to to understand that T1s should be stable and basically be legit. Is it OK?
