  1. I only built one Flash site as part of a course I was taking. We used Shane Rebenschied's book for Flash 8 isbn# 0-321-29387-8. We used one master fla and swf as a container into which all the other swf files loaded. The ActionScript code that was used commonly throughout the site was also in the master swf, thus making a smaller file size as it is not repeated in the other swf's. Also makes maintenance easier and the possibility to add more pages easily.
  2. Fabulous, the first option worked, it was hard coded into the index.php. Thank you so much for helping me out.
  3. Can anyone help me here???
  4. Help again, I changed my Mysql password in PHPmyadmin a couple of days ago. Today I tried testing a site and that was fine, then I tried to go to the MAMP start page to get into PHPmy admin and got this error Error: Could not connect to MySQL server! This is the address the start page showed: http://localhost/MAMP/?language=English What did I do wrong????
  5. She did put in the quotes, and funnily enough I do have it installed. I just looked at it and the full name is Bradley Hand ITC TT, so it does show up if I put the full name in. Dina, you are best to stick to basic fonts to avoid this issue, or use a selection of fonts e.g. font-family: "Bradley Hand ITC TT", Tahoma, serif; so that if they don't have the first font, or the second the browser will choose the default serif font in this case.
  6. Absolutely, the Bradley Hand ITC wasn't showing for me which is why I changed it to see if it was a problem with the font. I just chose Chalkboard at random because it is quite distinctive.
  7. I changed your font family and the new font now shows up. #menu a:focus, #menu a:hover, #menu a:active { font-family: chalkboard; }
  8. You have not given a colour to your hover and visited states, and you need to put # between the quotation marks in the link to make them work, as follows: HOME It is also a good idea to comment your closing div tags so that you can see at a glance if you have closed them propertly.
  9. You have put above the tag. As it suggests, the body should come below the head. Try putting it back in after the closing tag and before Try taking an online course from your local college, they are very inexpensive, and you have access to a teacher by email and usually a forum if you get stuck. Good luck
  10. I don't see the scrolling issues you described in IE7, (using VMware on a MAC) however you do have 37 errors in your html code. In case you are interested, in IE6 your navigation bar is doubled and the content background image is cut off and repeated.
  11. OK, thanks for the info. This was the way I had to set up the previous installation, but that was a couple of years ago.
  12. I think that I need to change my default path in .profile, to access the MAMP MySql, for the moment it is export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/mysql/bin" Should I change this to $link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', 'root'); Please help
  13. I previously had PHP and MySql set up on my Mac, but after changing computers, transfering the whole hard drive to the new computer and updating to Leopard, the computer refused to connect to localhost. After hours with Mac support, they informed me that the upgrade to Leopard had probably corrupted something and to try MAMP. So I have set up MAMP but want to change the MySql root password, however when I type mysql -u root in Terminal I get the following reply -bash: mysql: command not found I guess this is because it is looking for the original mysql not the MAMP version. I am a total
  14. Yes, you can do this with CSS. Look here http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/csslibrary/item/css-image-gallery/ You will have to play around with the code to get it to fit your page.
  15. If you Google Fireworks Tutorials you will find a wealth of information that will surely teach you how to use your program.
  16. Well I guess we're stuck with it for a while longer...
  17. It is not only in Firefox either, in Safari your background does not repeat properly. I looked at your code online and you are mixing tables, internal and external css. All your css styling should be in the external css stylesheet not in the html page. You probably have major conflict going on between the two. I also noticed you specified a height for one of your columns, this may be the cause of your problem in Firefox and Safari. You cannot afford to ignore the problem in these 2 browsers, at least 25% of people use Firefox. If you had developped your site using Firefox for testing,
  18. I love your predictions Shelfimage, a little scary though.
  19. Happy New Year to all and sundry.
  20. Try this. Put your image file in the CSS folder and leave the code for the background image like this background: url(bipolar.gif) repeat-x; If it shows up on your page, then your problem is where you had previously put your image. Read the following article which explains the difference between relative and absolute paths. http://www.ibdhost.com/help/path/
  21. LOL, Virtual is a she...
  22. PS: Your Doctype is missing an exclamation mark before the word doctype
  23. Got it, You need to change this line of code background: url('bipolar.gif') repeat-x; to this background: url(../bipolar.gif) repeat-x; The reason for the error is that your CSS file is in a folder, so to call the image from your css file within the folder you need the ../ to tell the CSS to look outside its own folder. If you keep your css file in one folder and your images in another images folder you would need to change this to but only when calling the image from the css file. background: url(../images/bipolar.gif) repeat-x;
  24. Oops, I saw that typo too in the reply. Hopefully Dina removed the quotes and the -image and did not copy and paste my typo. Next step is to make sure that your CSS is calling the right image and that there isn't a typo in there too for example an underscore instead of a dash. As you can see from my mistake a lot of grief can come from a typo. Susie is right, can you give a link to the page, much easier to identify the problem.
  25. Sorry, I don't know how to stop DW doing this, but you can easily change them back. Right click on your file, on a PC click on "Properties" on a MAC "get info", then change the "Opens with" back to whatever program it was.
