  1. I was wondering if someone who has implemented a client login with CMS MS could comment on how easy/difficult the process is in creating it. I have a potential client who wants an area for her clients to log in and download calendars, payment info, etc. I know CMS MS has this feature, but I've never used it before. It would be done with the front end module, correct? And when someone logs in, what would they see? I've searched the CMS MS forums, but I'm not really finding the info I'm looking for.
  2. I would LOVE to drop it, but at least 3 of my clients use it and complain when their sites don't look right on their computer.
  3. It's beautiful, Ben. And I meant what I said on Twitter - it belongs on the various design inspiration sites. About the comments in your Journal - is there a reason why you're not just using the Wordpress comment system?
  4. Thanks for your reply. I figured it out. I didn't have to manually load the patterns at all. They appear in the list of preinstalled patterns automatically. But darn it, this isn't what I was hoping for. LOL I was hoping a pattern would be like a brush where I could decide which colors to use instead of being confined to the colors in the pattern.
  5. I have downloaded a new pattern and am not understanding how to install it in my Photoshop for use. The file type is .PAT and I put it in the Adobe > Adobe Photoshop CS3 > Presets > Patterns folder. I see other patterns that came preinstalled in Photoshop. Next I created a new document and selected the paint bucket tool. At the top I then selected Pattern. And then I opened the pattern menu to the right of that and clicked the little arrow so I could choose Load Patterns from the menu. Correct so far? I think so.... The problem is, it says there's nothing in the Patterns directory. But I KNOW there is. I see it when I look at it outside of Photoshop. So, why isn't my Photoshop program seeing the patterns in there?! Help?
  6. It's just an idea (not sure if it's a good one or not), but I wonder if you could customize a project management system to match the design of her site. Something like Basecamp or similar.... OR...you can integrate her website design into CMS Made Simple and have your solution right there. (Please don't throw tomatoes at me for suggesting it. lol)
  7. Hello and welcome, Erik! It surely sounds like you've thought things through. I just wanted to chime in and say that in addition to your ideas, you can also market yourself to graphic designers who need help with coding. I work with two of them myself - they create the design and I code it and/or integrate it in a CMS. Do you have any samples of your work we can see? :cool:
  8. Or you can use a premade script. Example: Tectite FormMail
  9. No partying for us here. We all got a special Christmas present this year. All 5 of us (me, hubby + my 3 kids). The stomach flu! It started on Friday and we're still not done. Almost, though (fingers crossed). So, it'll be to bed at the normal time for us, I'm sure. Have fun everyone and stay safe!
  10. Happy New Year, everyone! :cool:
  11. Okay, I have to ask. What's that?
  12. I don't know of any, but I do know of a site with lots of quotes. http://www.quotegarden.com/
  13. Good! Just let us know when you've got the page uploaded and we'll take a look.
  14. Just to be sure, are you using the Firefox browser when trying to use it? Also, the way I access mine is through Tools at the top of the window.
  15. Dina, have you uploaded it to your server yet? If not, do you have an FTP? You can always use FireFTP that works with the Firefox browser. http://fireftp.mozdev.org/ Let us know if you need help with it.
  16. There's a small typo here. It should be: background: url(images/dark_pixel.jpg) repeat-x; Can you give us a link or give us the full page code? That will help us better determine what the problem is.
  17. You might look into something like Son of Suckerfish. I'm terrible with these menus, so I'll leave the explanation to someone else. But this should give you a starting point.
  18. I'm having fits with freelancer panel. I suppose I should get it up and running again and give it a shot. Most of my clients don't require as many email addresses as this one I'm thinking of.
  19. Wordpress does not include a link to "Home" in the navigation by default. Why? I'll never understand. I totally think it should. Anyway, here's a plugin that will do it for you. I use it all the time and it works great. Wordpress Plugin: Home Page Link Edit to add: So, just install this plugin and leave the option in Reading set to latest posts. Now your home page will be your blog posts and you will have a link to Home so people can get back to it when they need to.
  20. I signed up with Evernote today and I must not get it. It seems like it's just an online version of Word or something.

    Class or IDs

    I'm sure the others will have differing opinions, but basically, I use IDs for everything that will be unique in my site. For example, I only have one main menu so I'll use an ID for that. For the things that will recur in my site (boxes, styles, etc), I use a class.
