  1. I found the same thing... You can do a lot with it, but it isn't the most user friendly. GIMPshop (a modification of GIMP that adjusts the user interface to be more like Photoshop) is better, but not much. However, it is free, and it will get the job done if you don't have Photoshop.
  2. This comes down to a usability issue... It's generally accepted in the usability community that links should open in the same window, unless the user specifically selects Open in a New Window or Open in a New Tab. This reduces confusion and gives the choice to the user, rather than forcing them to follow whatever conventions the website designer follows. You'll just have to keep in mind that links here open in the same window, and if you don't like that, make sure to right click on them and select "Open in a New Window" instead.
  3. I believe after 15 posts, that number drops significantly. It's intended to slow down spammers.
  4. what's the CSS/HTML you are using? Hard to say without seeing the code.
  5. I'm currently working on making my new portfolio website WCAG 2 compliant. In case anyone else is interested, here is a useful article that covers what WCAG 2 is and how to go about ensuring compliance: http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/quickref/
  6. This is a summary of the topic 'Starting a web design business', originally posted on July 23, 2008. Original thread: http://killersites.com/mvnforum/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=11509 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  7. Just thought I would mention this, since it's possible that members who are just getting started with PHP will find this helpful... Need to work with PHP and MySQL without the hassle of constantly uploading files to your web hosting? Perhaps you want to install Wordpress or another CMS on your local machine? Installing the Apache server, PHP, MySQL and PHPMyAdmin separately can be a pain, and sometimes requires troubleshooting to get everything working. If you are looking for an automated installer that simplifies the process into a couple easy steps, check out WAMP (for Windows users) and MAMP (for Mac users). WAMP: http://www.wampserver.com/en/ Screencast showing installation: http://idea22.com/vi...708285941765250 (part 1) and http://idea22.com/vi...082810695178710 (part 2) MAMP: http://www.mamp.info/en/index.php Screencast showing installation: http://www.falkencreative.com/resources.php One final note: XAMMP (http://www.apachefri...g/en/xampp.html) is an alternative to WAMP, but in general, it seems that people tend to have more trouble getting it up and running. If you have trouble working with WAMP or MAMP, please start a new topic in the PHP forum -- don't add your question to this thread. Thanks!
  8. This forum used to include the signature feature, so maybe it's been temporarily disabled. Stefan will have to comment on that.
