  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. Actually if you are just talking about changing the drop down arrow you can do it with just CSS. The solution is to add a div before the select box and make the width smaller and so on and just read this it will explain it more http://bavotasan.com/2011/style-select-box-using-only-css/ It is a good read. Of course you would have to style the option tag as well.

    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. 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.

  4. 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.



    It needed this line of code. Please someone tell me why.


    nav > li:first-child {}


    I uploaded it to the website if you want to test it. Link in signature.

    Not sure but you may try validating your css. A missing { or } braket can cause some css to not render correctly.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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:







    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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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'.

  11. To add to my last post, here's the best way to do this using external css stylesheet:



    <img class="myimage" src="url">



    .myimage { width: 120px; padding:0px 0px 15px 0px; }




    <table class="mytable">



    .mytable { width: 800px; border:0; font-size:20px; }

  12. Acceptable:

    <img width="120" style="padding:0px 0px 15px 0px;" src="url">



    <img style="width: 120px; padding:0px 0px 15px 0px;" src="url">




    <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.




    <table style="width: 800px;" border="0">



    <table style="width: 800px; border:0;">




    <table style="width: 800px;" border="0" font-size:20px;>

    Font size should be contained within the style="".



    <table style="width: 800px; border:0; font-size:20px;">

  13. 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:



    <li id="home" ><a href="#" title="Click to visit Hompage">Home</a></li>



    #home {width:109px; background-image:url(images/bg_navbar.gif);}

    #home:hover{background-position:0px bottom;}

  14. 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">


    <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>




    Just use css to apply your image buttons including any hover effect.

  15. As usual, the Dropbox website doesn't tell us everything. Wikipedia has some background info:-


    regarding lack of security

    and this site


    regarding Apple blocking Dropbox

    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.



    Not sure if Apple is still blocking Dropbox since that release but has nothing to do with security issue.


    The dropbox site says that it works even when offline


    I don't understand how it can sync with the cloud or other computers if you are offline. However, it looks very useful and I will probably give it a try but I will probably want to sync with an old XP computer and I'm not sure if it will do that.

    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.
