  1. The whole suite is absolutely fabulous. I'm really impressed with Illustrator and Photoshop. [thread.jack] Have you ever used adobe's color pallet site? kuler.adobe on it's own is kinda...meh. Flash based so it's kinda bulky and getting the swatch pallets a pain. CS4 has a light weight built in that just rocks! Type keywords into the search box and it works just like the site does, it retrieves custom color pallets within your parameters. Now a click over the folder adds that pallet to your swatches. Awesome. [/thread.jack]

    Help with CSS

    CSS is case sensitive. You are calling for a change in the CSS for the element "A" where as the HTML is most likely a lower case "a". (as in: Link text) It's a good habit to write ALL of your code in lower case lettering. =)
  3. Where do you go to check something like that?
  4. Um, so no luck getting outlook not to open every time?
  5. Merry Christmas, everybody!
  6. Hiya, gang! A couple of days ago I pressed the little RSS feed button. To my dismay outlook will not recognize this link: http://www.killersites.com/forums/feed/atom/topic/128/?login=1 Not that I really wanted it too, I was just curious. Well, now every time I log on here at the forums, Outlook opens and tells me that the above is an invalid link. Is there a way to make this stop? Oh, and we need a "hmm" smilie!
  7. Oh, thanks! I can honestly say that handy tid bit has saved me hours of homework. Last week was finals at school. Our final project for Web Scripting was to design a web site. Please don't poke too much fun... I only had a week and homework from another class ( Posted on my blog if you want to see it) And before you ask, everything that is silly was a required element. Like the splash page. Yeah, I know... a splash page. I am filled with shame. But, the code is good and by adapting shelf's template I cruised right through the code. Got an A to boot.
  8. Not bad for a post I read four months ago!
  9. Good call! Yes, yes I can... And you have now been whitelisted!
  10. Perhaps I worded that wrong. I use FX3, 'cause it's kewl. (I'm a PC guy so, I haven't had your woes with FX and Mac. Although we use them at school with no problems) I have an add-on that prevents redirects. Handy little widget in my opinion. Not so handy for this situation. But, its a small price to pay to keep from being assaulted with ring tone giveaways and flash game viruses.
  11. Hmmm, I looked at that, but the people who wrote this forum seem to recommend against it. That said, the old forum made us wait 3 seconds, so this is much faster. Stefan Yeah it is faster, i guess. But, my browser doesn't redirect. So it's another mouse click. Not too labor intensive, just inconvenient.
  12. Earlier this year someone had posted an organized css layout template of sorts.... I wish I could remember who that was so I could give kudos. I want to say it was Shelfimage. But, I could be wrong on that. Nonetheless, I still have the original code he/she posted. And here it is: @charset "utf-8"; /* CSS Document */ /* --------------------------------------------- Screen Stylesheet for http://www.DomainName.com Updated: 01/01/07 author: Your Name website: http://YourWebSite.com ------------------------------------------------- >> ::COLORS:: >> ::TOC:: Resets Defaults Typography Forms Tables Template Links Menus Global Classes Content ------------------------------------------------- */ /* ---------- ::Resets:: --------------------- */ body, address, blockquote, dl, ol, ul, li, form, fieldset, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, pre { margin:0; padding:0; } fieldset, table { border:none; } /* ---------- ::Document Defaults:: ---------- */ html { font-size:100.01%; height: 101%; } body { margin:0 auto; height:100%; font:62.5%/1.8em Tahoma,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,'MS Sans Serif',sans-serif; background-color:#FDFDFD; color:#333; } /* ---------- ::Typography:: ----------------- */ blockquote, address, pre { margin:.5em 2em; } blockquote, p, li { padding:0 0 .4em 0; } h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p { margin:1em 0; } h1 { font-size:2em; } h2 { font-size:1.6em; } h3 { font-size:1.4em; } p, li { font-size:1.2em; } /* ---------- ::Forms:: ---------------------- */ input, label { vertical-align:middle; } label { cursor:pointer; } input, select, textarea { font-size:1.2em; font-family:inherit; font-size:inherit; } input, textarea { padding:.2em; } /* ---------- ::Tables:: --------------------- */ table { table-layout:fixed; word-wrap:break-word; overflow:hidden; } /* ---------- ::Template:: ------------------- */ #wrap { margin:0 auto; } #middle { } #left { } #right { } #footer { } /* ---------- ::Links:: ---------------------- */ a { text-decoration:underline; } a:visited { text-decoration:underline; } a:active, a:focus, a:hover { text-decoration:none; } a img { border:none; } /* ---------- ::Menus:: ---------------------- */ /* ::Main Menu:: */ ul#nav { } #nav li { } #nav li a { } #nav li a:active, #nav li a:focus, #nav li a:hover { } /* ::Footer Menu:: */ #footer ul { } #footer li { } #footer li a { } #footer li a:active, #footer li a:focus, #footer li a:hover { } /* ---------- ::Global Classes:: ------------- */ .center { text-align:center; } .clear { clear:both; padding:0; margin:0; line-height:normal; } .floatleft { float:left; } .floatright { float:right; } .hidden { display:none; visibility:hidden; } .inline { display:inline; } .small { font-size:10px; font-weight:normal; } .large { font-size:20px; font-weight:bold; } /* ---------- ::Content/Pages:: -------------- */ /* /// specific page rules here /// */
  13. Code is very finicky. Reword this line as such: background-image:url(images/background.jpg); ...and Wickham agrees
  14. Wonderful post, SLS. Chapter and verse of what I was trying to say! I will add too that using comments in your CSS can help keep things organized as well. For example: /*[start] link section for home page*/ a:link { text-decoration:none; color: #999999; } a:visited { text-decoration:none; color: #383636; } a:hover, a:focus { text-decoration:underline; color: #666666; } a:active {text-decoration:underline; color: #000000; } /*[end] link section for home page*/
  15. Yes you can. All of your pages should run off of the same style sheet. Only use an additional style sheet to make browser corrections like for IE Well, it will help if not fix it. Make those changes then come back and let us know what happens.
  16. Hey Stefan, I found a couple of links on the main site (killersites[dot]com) that sill point to the old forums. and This whole section: And now that I dig a little deeper... Just about every page has a reference or an in-text link to the old forum.
  17. Ahh, Just a name change. More details
  18. Try this: Put your whole site into a div. I call that a wrapper. html Try Try css #wrapper{ margin:0 auto; width:800px; height:auto; } #main { position: absolute; width: 550px; height: 500px; margin-right:400px; background-attachment: fixed; background-image: url(img/bg1.jpg); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: top left; } Also notice that you are missing a colon in the "margin-right" line. Replace the equals sign and wrap your site and you should be golden. Be sure to set the width of your site in the wrapper. I have 800px in there your site may be different.
  19. Also I think 180 seconds between post's seems a bit excessive.
  20. I could be wrong, but, I think you need to remove this And only link the main style sheet. Let your conditional statements redirect if necessary. Clear as mud? :/
  21. You don't look familiar - what was your name on the other side? SteelToadStudios I had the "Flash playing billiards" avatar. I haven't posted in months... I enrolled at The Art Institute of Indianapolis for interactive web design. Between school and work there's barely enough time for family, let alone posting!
  22. There are several threads going now with different questions and suggestions. I thought maybe one central thread may be easier to find. That being said... Would it be possible to lose the redirect screen after posting? It would be so much nicer if the page just reloaded without the delay. Thanks, JBall
  23. HaHa! I've been a member on the old forum since Feb 08 and still haven't broke a hundred!
  24. Javascript and Actionscript are two different beasts.
