  1. Hi Ben, thanks for the response. Loading two forecasts and then specifying which one to show on which devices had originally been my thought. But I can't load more than one forecast as they are php scripts and I get Fatal error: Cannot redeclare metnocommontemp() (previously declared in..........) Lots of variables are declared like this so back to the drawing board. Interestingly I ran the test page I had through Google's mobile checker with just the eight columns and it passed. I suspect it might be a bit small to read, but I don't have a mobile device to check with. Rosalind
  2. I have a weather website, built from the ground up and totally non responsive. It was basically only written for me to access the data, but I find that it is quite popular. So thinking that I ought to make a responsive homepage at least would be a start and then I can sort out which pages will not fit a mobile device, large tables full of data, can be left of the mobile menu. I have had a play around with Bootstrap and so far so good. But, I have a forecast that is output as a table via a php script. Currently the table is 10 columns, which is fine on a big monitor, but too big for tablets and mobiles. I can output the table as 8,6 and 4 columns but I am unsure as to how to out put the forecast depending on media query. At the moment it is a php iclude <?php include ('wsmetno3/printicons2.php'); ?> what I need is something to say use that one for screens 992px and up a smaller version between 991px and 480px and then below 480px the smallest one. Hope this makes sense! Thank you for reading and Happy Easter. Rosalind

    HI, I have downloaded Colorbox to use on my website, previously had used Lightbox but this doesn't work for iframes. The page I want to use it on is this http://www.mad-weather.com/webcam.php so that when you click on the webcam image it opens in Colorbox and doesn't take you to the webcam page. The images are displayed using an iframe which is how you are allowed to use them. An example of this working is http://madeira-seekers.com/madeira-webcams/ this is using Wordpress so maybe that is how they got it to work. I have it partially working on http://www.mad-weather.com/webcam10.php the link from the image doesn't work, but the text images do so I am half way there. Help on this would be much appreciated. Thanks Rosalind

    Following the latest Avast update localhost is working again properly.

    I found this is why Firefox redirects to localhost.com http://cdivilly.wordpress.com/2013/08/15/disable-firefox-redirecting-to-localhost-com/ so I have fixed that, an annoying thing as described. I can get in under so the conclusion is that it is Avast blocking things.

    Hi Ben, thanks for replying Rebooted everything, done a restart on the services. Click on localhost and it brings it up as www.localhost.com in firefox, which is really odd. No Skype on this PC and as far as I know the Windows Server isn't active. Totally at a loss here.

    Happy New Year to all. But not so great when I discover this morning that my server has stopped working. Presume a Windows update has done something. I just get a Firefox can't find the server at www.localhost.com. but why is it looking for www.localhost.com? It has been running for several years without a problem. Windows7 Home Premium 64bit. Anyone any ideas on how to fix this please. Thanks in advance.
  8. I have a website with a newsletter that is added via Issuu. The newsletter is uploaded as a pdf, converted from a publisher file and has email and website links that when you click on them will take you to an email program or to the website. Are these traceable by search engines and if so how do I stop them being clickable? I have seen other Issuu publications where the link takes you to a page not found. When in Publisher I removed the hyperlink it still is a link when saved as a pdf. Other than not to put email links on how do I stop the link being clickable? Hope this makes sense, thanks in advance. Rosalind
  9. I have a weather site that uses lots of php scripts to show information in easy to read tables and this works fine, but I would like to run the site using Drupal and have run into a bit of a brick wall. For the Temperature table on none Drupal site it looks like this http://www.mad-weather.com/temp_detail.php but for the Drupal site it looks like this http://www.sanssouciwebdesign.com/madweather/temp_detail The data is all being read correctly, but it is not reading the months and not reading the temp colour changes. I'm not a php expert, knowledge is fairly basic, and I didn't write the script. Attached the script if anyone is able to help. Thanks. wxtempdetail.txt
  10. essential modules are dependant on your site for my Drupal site www.holytrinity-madeira.org I use the following views cck panels chaos tools custom search image image cache pathologic mailchimp contact forms nice menus pathauto poormanscron read more link site map site verification token google analytics XML sitemap
  11. Huge learning curve with Drupal, but it is well worth it in the end. Lots of good support on the Drupal site and others if you use google to search things out. Plenty of video tutorials out there as well. The only downside is the lack of documentation with some modules, things move fast and they don't get updated. I started with Drupal 6 and haven't moved on yet. You also need to make sure your version of php5 is the correct one they recommend 5.3 but no lower than 5.2.5. Some hosts may not have updated their version of php, you need to check.
  12. A quick google for the missing quote turned up trumps on the theme I am using <td class=<?php print $fields[$field]; ?>"> to <td class="<?php print $fields[$field]; ?>"> all patched and now all working. Thanks Ben
  13. Thanks for that Ben, I will probably have to head over to Drupal to see why they are missing. I'd not noticed before.
  14. If I put td.field-charge-value in my css file and add some style to it, nothing happens. I'm missing something on the css somewhere.
  15. I am trying to alter some of the CSS on the table I have www.sanssouciwebdesign.com/holytrinity/trinity_rooms I am able to alter the headers individually but not the table cells. I would like to be able to centre the text in all the columns except the left hand column, I want that to stay left aligned. I have tried al-sorts of things, but only seem to be able to apply it to all columns. Thanks Rosalind
