Turning nested lists into one list using wp_list_pages

I have the following list using the wp_list_pages function:

<ul>     <?php wp_list_pages('include=27,29,23,21,1614&title_li='); ?> </ul> 

However, pages 23, 21 and 1614 are all child pages of page 29.

So the code that is output includes a nested .children list

Is there a way I can include each of these pages in just one list? I’ve tried modifying the depth parameter but it doesn’t give the result that Im looking for.

Turning VTM battles more dynamic

I’m playing a VTM 20th edition campaign with my friends, and they are really liking it, the only thing that is not great is the combat.

Sometimes the group battle just one or two enemies, and it’s fine, but now they are at war with the Sabbath, and the Camarilla is helping then in some battles, but then the combat turns into something like 10 versus 5, and then it gets a little boring, for me, because I’m controlling all the characters and for then, because they need to wait 10 actions to do something.

I know that one solution would be to just reduce the size of the battles, but battles of this size are really great for my storytelling at the moment, is there anything else I can do?

Does turning off my modem before leaving home significantly improve security?

Like many, most of my time is spent away from home: at work, the gym, out socializing, etc. I’d estimate I use my internet a few hours a night.

I never turn my modem off unless I travel for longer than a few days, and I have not disabled SSID broadcasting, as I’ve read that doing so has little to no security benefits.

But if my modem (and wi-fi) is off while I’m away, that would seem to nullify any security risks that do not include someone illegally accessing my physical devices, however minimal.

Are there any significant benefits to turning off your modem before leaving home, or would doing so be practically useless to protect against threats?

Turning the Mystic’s Baleful Transposition into a spell; what level should this be?

The UA Mystic can get the Baleful Transposition feature, which states:

As an action, choose one creature you can see within 120 feet of you. That creature must make a Wisdom saving throw. On a failed save, you and that creature teleport, swapping places. This ability fails and is wasted if of you can’t fit in the destination space.

As far as I could find, this is the only way to actually trade places with an opponent, and that is something I find incredibly interesting. I was wondering then what level this would be if I made it into a spell, something like the following:

Forced Teleport

X-th level some school

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 120 feet
Components: TBD
Duration: Instantaneous
Classes: TBD

Choose one creature you can see within range to make a Wisdom saving throw. On a failed save, you and that creature teleport, swapping places. This ability fails and is wasted if of you can’t fit in the destination space. A willing creature can choose to fail their saving throw.

What level should this spell be?

It doesn’t seem particularly strong to me; it combines moving yourself (like misty step), with moving the enemy (like thorn whip) but both are limited in various ways, though with a much greater range.

Alternatively, if this spell simply shouldn’t exist in D&D 5th edition for some reason, then that would be an acceptable frame challenge.

Too many redirection after turning off Anonymous Authentication

I am running on-Prem Sharepoint 2013 and writing a web application that will access SharePoint lists using CSOM.

I am using Claims Authentication and have Anonymous Access allowed for the web app.

Here are the first few line of CSOM:

    Dim ouritems As ListItemCollection     Using cc As New ClientContext(siteURL)         Dim ourList As List = cc.Web.Lists.GetByTitle(listTitle)         cc.Load(ourList)         cc.ExecuteQuery() 

Everything is working just fine.

I now turn Anonymous Access off.

My ExecuteQuery (the first access to SharePoint in the application) now fails with an exception: Too many redirections were attempted.

Can anyone explain the connection between turning of Anonymous Access and the exception?

Would plugging or unplugging the Coax cable from router before turning the router off cause any damage to the router or the cable?

Would plugging or unplugging the Coax cable from router before turning the router off cause any damage to the router or the cable or anything? Because I accidently unplugged the coax cable from the router before turning it off.
