  1. Typically, one contractor working for another only requires a non-compete agreement but it sounds like you both are trying to run a joint business with a business name that is different from yours/his business. If this is the case then I suggest you contact a lawyer because you both need to protect what you have invested in the new business name. Should either one of you ever wanted to part ways, who gets the naming rights of the business?
  2. Nice tip but the drawback is when the options text exceeds the fixed select width thus overlaying the arrow. Sure you could widen it but it would not work if you are trying to fit this within a certain space.
  3. You might try disabling non-related js to see if that resolves your problem. If so, then try reordering your lightbox scripts to be after the non-related scripts. Also, make sure you have the latest version of the jquery default core file. The latest release is 1.7.2 I think.
  4. Google "live chat software" and see what you come up with. Some have free trails but most are paid services. I don't know of any free open source software.
  5. See clip: rect It's rarely used but for this theme, its more than likely used for users that don't have a clue about sizing images to fit a particular area. Ideal for a fixed width/heigth div for images of different dimensions without skewing them.
  6. For text wrapping around the images, just copy and paste that css (per that link you've provided) to your theme's style.css file at the end. To center your slide you will need to edit the slideshow's theme's css file. Look for the following: .meteor-slides { margin: 0; overflow: hidden; padding: 0; position: relative; z-index: 1; } Change the margin: 0; to be margin: 0 auto; I hope this helps.
  7. As with any software, each one has their own perks and quirks. Drupal can be intimidating but it is very well built. Expression Engine is great as well and probably a bit more simplified than Drupal. I don't think you can go wrong with either one. Both seem to have less issues than Joomla but I haven't touched Joomla since 1.0 and I know they have improved over the last few years.
  8. Some prefer W3c, some books, and others prefer videos. Whatever you choose always keep an open mind to the fact that what is being taught could very well have some mistakes or is outdated.
  9. Not sure but you may try validating your css. A missing { or } braket can cause some css to not render correctly.
  10. I'm on a pc. You might check with the guy that created and working on his site to see if you have any difference in the css/html. Also, check his reset css to your reset css. Otherwise, I would grab his html and css for the nav and add it to your site for testing to see if you get the same issue or not. Almost always it has to do with the misuse of css.
  11. Well it does work sort of. If you click on Portfolio and then move your mouse away you will see that it doesn't work. Now just hover over any of the links other Portfolio but don't click anything then move it away. I saw that it it finally moved the current state over to Portfolio. CSS3 may still not be fully supported by Chrome and Safari...yet. It's choppy for Firefox.

    If I understand correctly, you wanted to duplicate the 'twentyten' theme. If so, then you should have two sets of folders in /themes/ folder that should look something like this: /themes/twentyten/ /themes/killersites/ The css file for /themes/twentyten/ should look like this: Theme Name: Twenty Ten The css file for /themes/killersites/ should look like this: Theme Name: Killersites Be sure to change your theme to killersites via WP admin.

    It's the Theme Name that needs to be changed. Theme Url does not have an affect.
  14. The only one I can think of is called CMS Made Simple. It will allow you to create a 3 column template specifically for one page and set it to allow to edit each area via the admin. Basically, each page you create can be assigned it's own template if so desired.

    If you copied and renamed the theme folder then you need to edit the css file to have a different theme name. Just open the style.css and you will see the theme name there. Just change it to match your folder name.
  16. You mean something like this? You could do something like Highslide or Fancybox.
  17. I started at 46 and been doing it (freelancing) for the last 8 years.
  18. Your image is contained by the <p> tag which is a block element in which by default is 100% of the width. This is why the <blockquote> (which is also a block element) drops down to the next line. To get them side by side you will need to define fix widths for both of them. The blockquote will also need adjustment for margins to not have left/right 'auto'.
  19. To add to my last post, here's the best way to do this using external css stylesheet: HTML: <img class="myimage" src="url"> CSS: .myimage { width: 120px; padding:0px 0px 15px 0px; } HTML: <table class="mytable"> CSS: .mytable { width: 800px; border:0; font-size:20px; }
  20. Acceptable: <img width="120" style="padding:0px 0px 15px 0px;" src="url"> Preferred: <img style="width: 120px; padding:0px 0px 15px 0px;" src="url"> Incorrect: <img width="120" padding:0px 0px 15px 0px; src="url"> You can't add padding inline without the using style="" as shown above. 'width' and 'border' are acceptable but preferred to be used within the style="" or external stylesheet. Acceptable: <table style="width: 800px;" border="0"> Preferred: <table style="width: 800px; border:0;"> Incorrect: <table style="width: 800px;" border="0" font-size:20px;> Font size should be contained within the style="". Corrected: <table style="width: 800px; border:0; font-size:20px;">
  21. You've set your background for the #navigation div but not for the individual link which is why there is not hover affect. You don't need to assign the image to the #navigation div. Here is a good example of a sprite image with the default and hover affect: Sample Image Let's take your Home link for an example how you would code it: HTML: <li id="home" ><a href="#" title="Click to visit Hompage">Home</a></li> CSS: #home {width:109px; background-image:url(images/bg_navbar.gif);} #home:hover{background-position:0px bottom;}
  22. Read my last post again because I have since edited it.
  23. Use <span> tags instead. Of course you don't have to use span tags...why not apply your image buttons to the anchor tags? <div id="navigation"> <ul> <li><a href="#" id="home"></a></li> <li><a href="#" id="portfolio"></a></li> <li><a href="#" id="contact"></a></li> <li><a href="#" id="about"></a></li> <li><a href="#" id="testimonials"></a></li> <li><a href="#" id="services"></a></li> <li><a href="#" id="blog"></a></li> <li><a href="#" id="rss"></a></li> </ul></div> Just use css to apply your image buttons including any hover effect.

    Dropbox in the past did have security issue but keep in mind that it was prior to their 1.2.48 release which have since resolved those issues. https://www.dropbox.com/release_notes Not sure if Apple is still blocking Dropbox since that release but has nothing to do with security issue. Not sure how it could work when offline. As for XP, it should work. Nothing states on the Dropbox site that it won't nor does it define any minimum requirements. As a matter of fact I will problably install this on my old XP computer later next week.
