  1. Too bad. I know I will remember that little ol' frog forever. Frogs Lives Matter!
  2. Thanks Stefan. As much work as I do I am reluctant to upgrade because I do not want to experience any downtime. I asked about upgrading to a mirrored drive but with OEM and the product key embedded, my concern is getting access to Windows 7 during work hours while dealing with Windows 10 when I am not working. I have till near the end of June to make up my mind.
  3. Just curious, when you upgrade from W7 to W10, does W10 just upgrade over W7 or does it back up the former OS and then installs a fresh copy of W10 but keeping third-party programs intact?
  4. At first, Bootstrap was a beast to look at but I was finally able to get a hang of it since started taking it seriously back in 2014. For us, we may pick up on it in a fair amount of time but I can only imagine how overwhelming a newbie would be starting out on something like this.
  5. Keep in mind that mobile devices have far fewer font choices. So using one that works for desktop may not display as intended for mobile. Best thing to do is use Google Fonts which has a growing list of fonts over the past couple of years. In my last 10-12 projects I used Google Fonts and nothing but. https://www.google.com/fonts/
  6. I'm ready to move up to Windows 10 since my PC is about 5 years old but not a point to buy one until later this year. My wife upgrade her laptop to W10 and she likes it. I have not really heard any really bad issues when you upgrade from 7 to 10 but then I have not looked around enough to make any opinions about if I should go ahead and upgrade or not.
  7. After much trial and error, you can add other user's videos but only after you have subscribed to their channel. I did find someone that has already create a script to do just what I wanted along with some customization. http://www.embed-videos.com/ I highly recommend this author (Steve) and this script. He did everything we asked and did so responding very quickly to our requests. Tell him Eddie and Greg sent you via Greybeard Design.
  8. This may not be possible but I have a couple of questions: 1. Is there a jquery or some kind of code that will allow you to embed a youtube channel to a website that will allow you to customize various parameters (color, font, thumbs, size, etc)? 2. Is there a way to set up your youtube channel so that it can extract various videos that have already been uploaded on other user's channels? Basically, a client wants his channel to grab existing videos from other user's accounts. Is that possible?
  9. If you want to host the fonts yourself then you can download whatever google font(s) you like to use and then use Font Squirrel to create the web fonts and upload them to your site. You then link the provided stylesheet.css file to your web page header and apply your the font-family to your css.
  10. With mobile becoming more active in our daily lives we find ourselves (as developers) trying to cater our design to that market. There are many tools that can help you such as BrowserStack.com. However, not every can afford using and it seems a bit cumbersome and lacking when you really need to troubleshoot design issues for certain devices. As you know, Firebug is a great tool for Firefox in reviewing, troubleshooting and testing pages....at least for desktop. Trying to do this for mobile is a pain because you are dealing with browsers that is rendering as a desktop. Oh sure you can set a fixed width to simulate a mobile screen size but you know well enough that it will not give you the true results. The biggest issue is where logic is applied to show certain code for desktop but not for mobile and vice versa. One thing I found is a User Agent Switcher that you can plugin to your Firefox browser. Activate it and set the user agent to whatever device you are working on as in my case Samsung Galaxy 4. I would then set my Firebug UI location to be either Right or Left and adjust the screen so it's the size of the mobile's screen size. And now I can use my Firebug tool to troubleshoot any issues that I may have with Samsung devices. You will also find that you can import a xml file that provides you with a comprehensive list of user agents for all types of devices including browser for Max, Linux as well as all types of mobile devices. Currently, you can find that download here I am sure this has been around a few years but I have not really begun working with mobile until middle of last year and I struggled with it when it comes to troubleshooting. I hope this helps.
  11. Looks like it will be done NOT using Wordpress. I found a guy that will do the parallax portion of the design but it would be nice to see a few tutorials that shows how to do different types of parallax. One (most we all know about) is scrolling but the others like pinned and then scroll, move in or out, scroll up then stop(pause) and then scroll again. fade in and out, and so forth...yeah I know it's a lot to ask but I am in no hurry now but it is something I like to know more about.
  12. Well after spending a better part of my afternoon, I think I am in over my head about how it works. I have done a tad of jquery before with bootstrap usally with no problem but is using hover, click or toggle events and not scroll events which I have no clue. I have yet to find any resources that explains what each function does, how and why it coded that way. Here's an example in which I am trying to understand which is using skrollr.js <div id="foo" data-0="background-color:rgb(0,0,255);" data-500="background-color:rgb(255,0,0);">WOOOT</div> Bascially this tells it to transition the background from blue to red. I assume the data-0 is the beginning of the event and it last until 500 pixels later(?). So I figure it would be easy enought to start out with transparancy and then go to red. You will notice the addition I've made in bold below: <div id="foo" data-0="background-color:rgb(0,0,255,0);" data-500="background-color:rgb(255,0,0,1);">WOOOT</div> Well that didn't work. As a matter of fact it rendered it useless. So, I thought maybe I was going about it the wrong way and so I tried using data-opacity="0" but that didn't work. The scroll of background images seems easy enough but it's not what I want. I need a top nave to change color gradually when scrolling up. The other one is a profile image appearing on that page in a fixed position when first loaded and when some content comes up (after about 400 pixiels) to just right under the profile image it would then move up together. Need a tutorial on this Stef. My hair is becoming thin.
  13. I fixing to start on a small but important project that requires a couple of small parallax effects. My question is how to tackle this in the proper order. Do I code the page so that it lays down for desktop first and then make it responsive before I even apply the parallax effects? Secondly, I think the client wants to use Wordpress. My thought is that I could use WP's default 2014 theme which is responsive. I could then apply the design to it and then add the parallax effects. What do you think? Suggestions? I have already went thru a number of articles but I have to find one that gives you a guideline on what you should do first and then thereafter.
  14. Congrats...does this mean the faithful ones here get it free?
