  1. Oh dear Flash, unfortunately some of these sites are going to be totally unreadable on Mac iPhones and iPads. I think you should post your problem on a Flash specific forum, there aren't many Flash experts on this one. I noticed that there is no navigation or way to go back to the previous page if the video doesn't interest the viewer apart from closing it down (which leads to your problem). There should be navigation or a Flash button to revert to the previous page, as obviously with Flash the browser back button does not work. Maybe you could implement that and kill the close button which is giving you problems. P.S. The site, while I agree is very clean and simple, is also very user unfriendly.
  2. Hi Susie, This might work for you if I'm understanding what your client wants. The "susie.jpg" is 2000px wide by 800px high and absolutely awful, I just threw it together to try it out. I'm not sure what the biggest monitor width size would be. I have dual monitors at 1280px wide each and I dragged the browser window across both screens to get the right hand side to go to full limit with the content staying in the middle. I only tested in Firefox (Mac) You can see it here http://180virtual.com/susie/
  3. Definitely html and css, you will still be using those when you have learned php. A whole website is not coded in php alone. Another good way to learn is to download free templates and take them apart to see what tags do when you change the css.
  4. Here you go, Wickham had one too http://css-tricks.com/perfect-full-page-background-image/ http://www.wickham43.net/backgroundfullwidthflexible.html
  5. Take a look at this article, I believe there is an updated version of it, but I will have to look through my code snippets. http://css-tricks.com/how-to-resizeable-background-image/
  6. It's on CS3 too - a great tool
  7. You have an * at the top of your css file with no styling, try adding in *{ margin: 0; padding: 0; }
  8. Some people use the slice tool, but I find it very messy. I prefer to turn off the elements I don't need and crop/trim and save out the different sections from the psd file.
  9. I heard that the Lynda.com course on SEO was really good, I don't know if it's the same course that I looked at, but they actually had a test site up and showed the results with the SEO.

    Forms in IE7

    Remove the fieldset and legend tags, they are not showing in the other browsers anyway, and IE7 will play nice.
  11. If you have set it up as tables that's what it will look like for the client. He can just add the information to a blank table or modify an existing table. If it is just set up in ordinary html he can change the text, add images etc. They have a short video on Cushy which shows you how to do it. Take a look.
  12. Sounds like he's no friend at all and is just using you. I would do as you suggested about the email account. If he feels insulted then you might lose a "friend", but with friends like that who needs enemies .
  13. If the client wants to update certain areas himself why don't you use CushyCMS or SurrealCMS? It is just a matter of adding a div tag around the updateable areas and the client sees something like a text editor. Really easy to install and use.
  14. Is anyone here interested in doing some back end programming for me? I need to have a login area where clients can download and make reservations and payments and see the items they have currently active. If interested please PM me and we can discuss pricing and other details. Thanks
  15. You are missing a closing " after "Times new roman. Fix that and the css will display. @Andrea If you have IE8 you have IE7 incorporated with it. Go to Tools - Developper Tools. You can then display an inspector like Firebug and can switch between browser modes and document modes.

    Mp3 payment system

    Have a look at this https://www.payloadz.com/
  17. Have you guys seen this yet it's amazing, you can use any font that is available on the web by linking to Google's code base. http://code.google.com/apis/webfonts/
  18. http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=5627669& otherwise http://support.apple.com/ It shows fine in IE7 and 8 on my old XP PC, so the issue is with Vista
  19. Yes there is a glitch with Vista. Let me look up the article for you.
  20. They are showing in Firefox 3.5.9 on MAC, let me check on the PC
  21. The contact form would look better in the centre it is too far to the right, change to this fieldset { margin:0 12px 0 0; padding:0 0 10px 10px; } The line separating discography does the same thing add margin:0 12px 0 0; to .discos and the background image does not extend all the way down.
  22. The background image in #contentcentered should be the same size as the header, the text overflows out of it. Otherwise very elegant site.
  23. Ooh I'll have to go check my sites. What are they doing to prevent this as obviously you can't keep cleaning out your files and changing passwords all the time?
  24. The link to your site doesn't work
