  1. http://tinyurl.com/29wlcbb I cannot figure out why IE is not showing the 100% width I have set for the #stripes div and the #footer div. On my computer, I see the #stripes div as starting in the middle (kind of along the left side of the content container) and the footer as stopping on the right way before the edge of the screen. I am aware of the other issues in IE (navigation mainly), but I wanted to get this figured out first. Thanks for any help.
  2. I think that looks good! It's a nice touch.
  3. I agree....it looks pretty good as is!
  4. You have showposts=1 and cat=4. Change that line to <?php query_posts('showposts=3&cat=5'); ?> and it should work for you.
  5. I have a client for whom I installed vBulletin 4. I am swamped right now and spending most of my days helping my Mom & Dad (my mom was just diagnosed with cancer), so I don't have time to help my client with the forum right now. She basically needs someone to walk her through setting up the forums, approving members, making some forums private, managing spam registrations, etc. If anyone is familiar with the software and is available, please send me a PM with your info/rates and I will put you in touch with her. She would like to get this done as soon as possible. Thanks.

    CSS Sprite Menu

    Thanks for your help, everyone. I really appreciate it. I'll keep you posted on my progress. Stef, I already have a KU account, so I'll take a look at the videos when I get a moment. Thanks! And thanks for your thoughts about my mom. My mom was just diagnosed with lung cancer on July 16th and it's been a whirlwind of doctor appointments, a hospitalization, etc. since then. I've been helping her a lot during the days, so needless to say, I'm a bit behind on my work. Her first chemo went well today (as well as these things can go). Anyway, sorry to ramble. I seem to be doing that a lot lately (in real life). Thanks again, everyone.

    CSS Sprite Menu

    Is there anyone here that is good with CSS sprite menus? I need help with one (I've never done one before). I may even just want to hire it done, so if any of the regulars are free today, let me know. I don't really have time to deal with it today because I have to go with my mom to her first chemo treatment today. Anyway, I've attached the menu image and here is what I have so far: http://tinyurl.com/29wlcbb . I'm not doing so well here.
  8. Thanks! I added the min-width (will look at IE 6 soon). Do you think the image needs to be adjusted at all?
  9. Thanks for your input, BeeDev. It got me to thinking.... http://tinyurl.com/29wlcbb Can you guys check this and tell me what you see? I'd love to hear from someone with a large monitor. It's in the very beginning stages and I still have a lot of work to do on the page as a whole.
  10. I did have access to the site and WP admin earlier yesterday, but then after about 6:00pm, the site is down for me. I get the message that the server is taking too long to respond. I can view it on my phone just fine.
  11. A client's site has been down for me since yesterday and I know it's just me. http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ Also, the host has verified that it's up and Ben & Eddie say it's up for them, too. So, what do I do? Is there anything I can do or do I just need to wait it out?
  12. I need someone (prefer a regular here at KS) who is familiar with WordPress to test something for me. If any of you are around and available, can you PM me? Thanks!
  13. Thanks for the IE fix. Oh shoot - I hadn't seen the IE 6 issue. Grrr.... not sure what happened there. This menu works on other sites in IE 6. I'll have to figure that out. Thanks!
  14. Thanks for the idea, Andrea. I forgot I have a body class .home so I changed the list to .homelist. Now I have: .entry-content ul.homelist { clear: none; margin-left: 180px; } And it seems to work in all but IE for me. Hmmmm....
  15. http://tinyurl.com/2dwn8kq Okay, I cannot figure out how to get the <ul> on this page (link above) to move over to the right. Here is the code I'm using: .entry-content ul.home { margin-left: 30px; } If I do .entry-content ul.home li and give it some padding, it works, but the bullets are still stuck in the floated image. I know the solution is simple (and I'll feel dumb once I see it), but I've tried everything and I'm not sure how to solve this. Ideas?
  16. Nevermind. I figured it out.
  17. Lynne, thanks so much for your time. I will be revisiting this (got sidetracked by another client today) tomorrow or Wednesday. I got the job (yay!) so I will need to figure this out. Be back soon!
  18. So, using what is in Wickam's link, do you think it would make sense to position it right: 0, top: 0 but not include left: 0 since they only want it to expand to the right? The other thing I can't see how to do is that they want the left side of the image lined up with the left side of the content container. That means it would need to be in the div....then how could it expand all the way to the right if the div is fixed width? Here....I've attached another image...it's not exact/perfect, but it gives you an idea of what I mean....
  19. Thanks for the links, Lynne. I googled a bunch, but did not come across them. Off to study!
  20. I have a potential client asking about this. I have my suspicions, but I wanted to check with others before giving them my answer. They are asking if the attached background can be "stretched" to the right depending upon the viewer's resolution. The left side of this background image will be almost flush with the left side of the main content area. Then if the viewer's monitor is smaller, they would see a portion of this background. If the monitor is larger, the background (in their hopes) would extend further right to reach the edge of their monitor. (I hope I'm making sense here....) So, what would your answer be? I am curious to know if I'm thinking correctly here....
  21. I just learned something new! I've been cropping images, but it's not always exact and I get so frustrated when working with backgrounds. Maybe this will help me?? I've never noticed Trim before..... Off to play with it!
  22. You saved the day again, Ben! Thanks!
