  1. beermantm: Thanks. I'll take a look at what you offered and see what I can come up with. Much appreciated.
  2. I made a navbar (I guess that's what it's called) for my website. Horizontal. It has the look I want and it works. But I have client-related pages that will fill their respective navbars up fast, making them crowded, probably even falling off the right side of the pages. So I need to make my existing format into a dropdown type. I tried to integrate tutorial code I found online into making this, with bad results. The navbar background color (#000) grew in height when a submenu item dropped down, instead of that menu item alone being #000. Would someone look at my code and get me headed in the
  3. Great information. Thank you, Ben. I see that I was making my mistake by using "value = " in echoing the textarea variable. Seems that value isn't used with textarea at all. Who'd've thunk it?
  4. And this is an issue because if the user has made a mistake on the form and has to make a correction, he/she also now has to retype everything in the textarea again before re-submission. And the textarea's the only input device that loses its input. Input boxes are fine, as are the selected select options. Is this a natural behavior? Is there a way around it?
  5. Is this considered "spaces" between those tags? <p> <label for="details" class="label">case details:</label><br> <textarea class="txtarea" rows="14" cols="50" name="details" placeholder="Case Details" value="<?php if (isset($_POST['details'])) { echo $details; } ?>"> </textarea> <span class="error"><?php echo $detailsErr;?></span> </p><br> UPDATE: I wld have never thought that butting the tags together cld make such a difference, but your suggestion was the ticket. Many thanks, Ben. Very much appreciated.
  6. I have a form with a textarea. Every time I load the page, I can't see the placeholder text because blank spaces magically appear in the textarea box. I have to click inside it and drag my mouse to capture all the blank spaces to delete them out. This happens on every textarea box I set up. All my input boxes show their placeholder text except this one. Just looks kinda tashy. Is this a known issue with textarea boxes? Is there something I can do to make sure the box is cleared out upon loading my form?
  7. Hello Forum: I'm just now trying to learn PHP and read that using PDO was a better way to utilize online databases. I have my Registration page completed, storing client info in a MySQL db, all done using PDO. However, I'm having a little trouble with the Login page. I don't know if I'm using the PDO stuff the right way. $stmt = $db->prepare('SELECT (username, password) FROM members WHERE (username) LIKE ? AND (password) LIKE ?'); $stmt->bindValue(1, "%$uname%", PDO::PARAM_STR); $stmt->bindValue(2, "%$pwd1%", PDO::PARAM_STR); $stmt->execute(); echo $a
