Creating Simple Re-Usable Confirmations in DotNetNuke Skins

As part of the IowaComputerGurus site redesign that I just launched earlier this evening I was looking for a simple "no hassle" way to add a confirmation to a link before downloading. Historically I created a module to manage this and the module managed those links. However, I wanted to find something more flexible so that I can put my download links wherever I want, in any Text/HTML module, on any section of the site. Amazingly I was able to do this with two lines of JavaScript in my skin file!

Security Exceptions After Moving .NET 2.0 DNN Site?

Over the past few weeks it seems that I have been doing more DotNetNuke site shuffles than I have in a long time.  From local -> production, from hosting provider a -> hosting provider b, and any combination therein.  This process is practically second nature for me as I've done it so many times.  However I had two sties that proved to be really troublesome so I though I'd share the root causes here in hopes that it might help someone!
