Avoid unnecessary text selection on web pages

You know that annoying thing that happens when you try to click a link or a button on a page and you miss, and accidentally marks some text or html:

There is a fix for that.

Css fix:

    -webkit-touch-callout: none;
    -webkit-user-select: none;
    -khtml-user-select: none;
    -moz-user-select: none;
    -ms-user-select: none;
    user-select: none;

via javascript: Disable Text Select – Stack Overflow.

Js IE fix: (probably needed for some versions of Internet Explorer…)

onselectstart = function(){ return false; }

Jquery IE fix:

In jQuery 1.8, this can be done as follows:

    $.fn.disableSelection = function() {
        return this
                 .attr('unselectable', 'on')
                 .css('user-select', 'none')
                 .on('selectstart', false);


I havent tested these anywhere… yet. But Stack Overflow  is usually right.

Setup Commerce EPiServer Site

(0. Setup the CMS site as usual in IIS)

1. Add “Commerce Manager Site” in IIS, Commerce version 1 is NET 2.0 app pool , point to “Manager” folder of EPiServer Commerce. E.g “MySiteCommerceManager” for project MySite: C:\Projects\MySite\Solution Items\CommerceManager”
for instance the same hostname as the CMS site e.g MySite.local but use port 8080 in IIS.

2. Add various “virtual directories”:
E.g from this path:
C:\Projects\MySite\Main\Solution Items\Commerce\Framework\Shared\*
(PS. folders _cmsbase and _cmsctrls is removed from EPiServer Commerce 7.0+)

3. Set config files paths for c: to correct places.
(in Visual Studio shift+ctrl+f) search for “c:” look in “entire solution ” look at these files types: *.config
e.g VPP – in commerce/manager/configs/baf.config

4. Make sure Commerce licene is in place:
At Manager root folder AND in webste root folder. Important! can for instance make it impossible to add items to cart in website (just redirects to startpage or similar strange error).

Errors and problems:

Can’t find error template “StoreClosed.htm”
– Setup the correct virtual directories for manager site:

Assembly Episerver.Commerce, Episerver.Licensing couldnt be found
– Add assemblies to the manager bin folder.

Licenses missing
– Add EPiServerCommerceLicense.config to webroot of manager site AND to website root.
