      OK thanks. What else do you program, PHP, Javascript?

  2. Take a look at hostgator.

    white borders?

    I was surprised to find that I was in 2nd place on the 1st page and 4th place on 2nd page on Google, according to the keywords entered. I must say that the site has been totally static and almost unused and has no backlinks, but has been in existence for almost 5 years with a few updates about once a year. So imagine my surprise to find out how well I ranked on Google. Of course, this site is not in a competitive market and would only be found by people punching in those 2/3 keywords, but still, a couple of years back this site was nowhere to be found on Google even with the same keywords. So I guess longevity is also a huge factor in SEO. Experts in this matter, please feel free to correct me.

    Fading Text

    I think you'll find what you need here http://www.malsup.com/jquery/cycle/
  5. Read this article http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/
  6. That should be <div class="left"> <ul> <li>77 FRONT STREET</li> <li>2ND FLOOR</li> <li>BROOKLYN, NY 11201</li> </ul> </div> <div class="right"> <ul> <li>TO CLARK STREET</li> <li>TO HIGH STREET</li> <li>TO YORK STREET</li> </ul> </div> Then as Ben explained, style the .left and .right, you may need to style the ul li tags depending on what is in your css file.
  7. Read this post http://www.killersites.com/community/index.php?/topic/3010-cant-open-my-website/page__pid__16528__st__0entry16528 which will probably help you understand how to save and open text files and give them the right extension. All html files should have the extension .html and css files .css, sometimes Windows adds on .txt as well. Beware of that.
  8. Wonderful, so simple and worked like a charm. Thanks once again Ben.
  9. I am trying to put a required field for the $children field into an email reservation form. However if I enter 0 in this field I get an error message, any other number or text is fine, but if the guests don't have kids, I don't want to show an error. How do I get the PHP script to accept 0 as a valid answer? Help will be much appreciated. Here is the script: <?php $ip = $_POST['ip']; $httpref = $_POST['httpref']; $httpagent = $_POST['httpagent']; $visitor = $_POST['visitor']; $visitormail = $_POST['visitormail']; $adults = $_POST['adults']; $children = $_POST['children']; $age = $_POST['age']; $notes = $_POST['notes']; $attn = $_POST['attn']; if (eregi('http:', $notes)) { die ("Do NOT try that! ! "); } if(!$visitormail == "" && (!strstr($visitormail,"@") || !strstr($visitormail,"."))) { echo "<h2>Please use browser Back button - Enter valid e-mail</h2>\n"; $badinput = "<h2>Your email was NOT submitted</h2>\n"; echo $badinput; die (); } if(empty($visitor) || empty($visitormail) || empty($adults) || empty($children) || empty($notes )) { echo "<h2>Please use browser Back button - Fill in all fields</h2>\n"; die (); } $todayis = date("l, F j, Y, g:i a") ; $notes = stripcslashes($notes); $message = " $todayis [EST] \n Phone: $phone \n Message: $notes \n From: $visitor ($visitormail)\n Additional Info : IP = $ip \n Referral : $httpref \n "; $from = "From: $visitormail\r\n"; mail("me@atmysite.com", $subject, $message, $from); ?> <p align="center"> Date: <?php echo $todayis ?> <br /> Thank you <?php echo $visitor ?> for your message, we will contact you shortly. <br /> <br /> Message:<br /> <?php $notesout = str_replace("\r", "<br/>", $notes); echo $notesout; ?> <br /> <?php echo $ip ?>

    CSS Layout problems

    You have to specify a width for your table cells. You can do this easily in DW, click the top of your table in Design View and select each column then specify the width in the properties panel.
  11. Yup, and glad to be back Now I just need to find a few regular freelance gigs. Any ideas?
  12. Not really I think it was around $800 at Costco, but then there's Sales Tax and California Recycling Tax of $25 to add on. If you shop around you can find them a little cheaper.
  13. Oh wow, men and their toys.... Just joking, I thought you were way up there with all the modern gadgets. You certainly do need a new TV if the old one is 17 years old. We just moved back so hubby bought a new TV too, a Sony Bravia 1080 46" with internet link. We haven't moved in yet so I haven't seen it work.
  14. From what I have gleaned it seems to be the extension used by a Community Website Builder (WisyWig) by BT and Recipero, cooperation between the two companies now being at an end. If you look at the coding it looks rather wierd, as does DW's WisyWig coding.
  15. I was wondering whether it would be possible to add the link to Active Topics at the bottom of the page as well as at the top? It would be for ease of use instead of having to scroll to the top to find it.
  16. Just write in uppercase, then maybe we'd have heard you... I know what it's like, I completely lost my voice for 3 days with the last cold/flu bug, no pain just no sound came out of my mouth and answering the phone was completely out of the question.
  17. I have a client who is requesting the possibility for his clients to make reservations online from his website. I have never done this before except through an email form which would then send back a confirmation. Is there any service out there that anyone can recommend? The only thing I found was reservationgenie.com which might be a little overkill as he only has a 10 page site.
  18. If you have Dreamweaver you could use the Snippet function which has a Title and Description area. I have Evernote too like Ben, but I don't like it, so for the time being I store everything as a draft in Gmail which is accessible wherever I am or whichever computer I'm using. I plan adding them at some time to my web site with live samples like Eric at visibilityinherit.com.
  19. Same here in Firefox, Safari and Opera on Mac. As Ben said white on yellow is almost illegible and I find the size much too small for a navigation menu.
  20. position: fixed; is probably your solution. It generates an absolutely positioned element, positioned relative to the browser window. The element's position is specified with the "left", "top", "right", and "bottom" properties.
  21. To rectify the gap at the top in .paper set margin-top to -6px. Only checked in FF
  22. Fine the Flash shows up in Safari and Firefox. Now you just have to move the menu to avoid it covering up the right hand links.
  23. On the PC running XP Home I tested in Firefox, Chrome, Safari, IE8, IE7, IE6. The Flash is there but depending on the screen resolution and the size of the browser window the menu bar cover the links on the right and part of the Flash. This is because you have chosen an unusual place to put your menu and your layout is liquid. You cannot assume that everyone has the same screen resolution or is viewing the browser at full screen or has not zoomed in. On the MAC the z-index issue is covering your Flash completely and the menu bar problem as mentioned above persists. I suggest you move the menu to the top and remove the z-index on #portfolio_bg. Let me know when you have done that and I'll look at it again.
