  1. Good job, I like the Jquery dropdowns, just a few comments:


    If find the colour scheme a little harsh and not very easy to read, light on dark never is especially for us older users, and the yellow is very bright.

    In Firefox on Mac the Save to Evernote is aligned to the right and pushes the icon down. Also the icons are very dark and barely visible. I have 2 screens at different brightness levels to account for the differences between Mac and PC, on the PC side I had to up the brightness to even see them.

  2. Just to chime in at the end of this musical discussion. Please do not make the music automatically play when entering the site. Bear in mind that a lot of people surf while at work and to hear unrelated music to the workplace is a big no no. Another consideration, maybe your tastes in music are not those of the user. It is better to give users the option to turn on the sound, rather than give them the option to turn it off.

  3. I have been watching this post from afar, and felt I had to chip in. Andrea has been giving you a lot of good advice. All of it for your own benefit and free of charge. What you have produced is one huge mess.


    This project is a learning experience for us.

    Looking at the code it is obvious you have no idea what you are doing, and are not really listening to Andrea's advice. You will find that there is more to designing and implementing a site than just using Dreamweaver and hacking away at it. It's as if I decided I was going to be a professional chef, just by getting some professional knives. And while I am no stranger to the kitchen, you are definitely a complete stranger to web design.


    We understand the growing strength of the Internet and knowing how it works is critical to our future success.

    Well you are going about it the wrong way, hiring a professional seems like a better one, someone who understands the concepts of design and development. And with that messy code, what are you going to do about Search Engine Optimization?


    Having this farmed out to a third party or just buying a cheap $25 template that ends up looking like

    a "Wal Mart" box is not in our best interest.

    Personally I also find this remark rather insulting considering the mess you have produced. You seem to be denigrating web designers and developers in general while expecting us to bail you out. I can only imagine the comments you would get if you posted your site on another css forum asking for feedback on the design and conception!

  4. Actually the top line is not displaying correctly which pushes all the subsequent content down.


    First of all, never believe what Dreamweaver is showing you, it is just a visual aid to help you grab hold of a tag without having to wade through the code. Believe what you see in Firefox, that will show you exactly what you have coded.


    Re your problem, you have put a p tag within the td cell, the p tag has a top and bottom margin of 1em so it is being pushed down. Remove the p tag. To give space around the text in your table, you can add padding to the tr tag

  5. This will illustrate it better for you, you can see if you run the following code that the ID selector overrides the class selector.

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    #green {color:green;}
    .red {color:red;}
    <p class="red">This line will be red</p>
    <p id="green" class="red">But this line will be green, because the ID overrides the class</p>

  6. You obviously did not understand what BeeDev and Ben (FalkenCreative) wrote. They explained that they don't do exactly the same job and gave you 2 very different reasons.


    Once you have become more familiar with web design, css and js you will probably hit yourself on the forehead with a "Duh, the penny dropped with a sudden clang" gesture. :P

  7. Hi All,

    I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction. I need to display prices on a web page according to geographical location.

    E.g. If the client is in Europe I want to display the page with the prices in Euros and if he is in the US, display the page with prices in $. I know this is possible, but haven't a clue how to do it or what to search for specifically.

    Thanx in advance

  8. I have had payments on Paypal where the money was paid into the Paypal account but only released to the seller when the buyer received the merchandise and gave his OK, that was on Ebay, kind of like an escrow. However I have no idea how you would set that up for a one time purchase out of the Ebay program. Try and check out Paypal for this type of arrangement.
