  1. Hello All, I help with a web site for my local cricket club and I have been asked to investigate the distribution of an e-newsletter to a database of contact which have built up. Another friend is a member of a golf club and he says their web site does all this for them. Would this feature be built in by the designer? I found Campaign Monitor which looks good but I'm intrigued by any other ways of doing this. Thank you as always, Best wishes Graeme
  2. Hello Andrea, Thanks so much for your help. I tried everything you suggested but still no go! Not to worry I'll keep trying, thanks again, Best wishes Graeme
  3. Hello Andrea, I forgot I posted this one! My apologies for not getting back sooner, I thought I had ticked e-mail notification. I used a Javascriptopen window for the teams as I can't see the point of having a whole page with just a few lines of text although I understand about the back button. It seems to work though. The hovering over the text is OK as you can read the link text before hovering! I'll alter the top banner, I agree it's the words that count. I'm not too sure about the disabling the View Source, I think it was back in the day when it semed popular! Not too sure what you mean about the doctype? I still can't figure out my origional problem, it's frustrating, it doesn't seem to happen in any other browser on my PC. I wonder if it's a problem with my IE9. Best wishes Graeme
  4. Hello All, I have a Flash movie on a web page as a banner at http://www.standrews-chiltonmoor.org.uk/index.html I was speaking with a friend who said he couldn't see it on his iPad and I explained that it wouldn't view Flash. I was wondering if there is any other code I could use instead? I have seen similiar ideas and it is not Flash, any advice will be more than welcome, Thank you as always, Best wishes Graeme
  5. Hello All, When I view www.burnmoorcc.org.uk in IE, if I click on one of the links that open a Javascript pop up the top part of the index page goes black, this sometimes happens when if I click on part of page! I use a disable 'view source' code which is not really apt nowadays but wondered what would cause this? Thank you as always, Best wishes Graeme
  6. Woops, it's OK folks, the code is OK, I just missed a letter out of the filename! Best wishes Graeme
  7. Hello All, I found some nifty code to embed a movie onto a web site. I want to embed an .avi file and I have it in the root directory but for some reason it won't play. I used the code:- <html> <head> <title>Untitled</title> </head> <body> <p align="center"> <object width="320" height="260" classid="CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95" hspace="0" border="1"> <param name="Filename" value="christmastreefestival.avi"> <param name="AutoStart" value="True" /> <param name="ShowControls" value="true" /> <param name="ShowStatusBar" value="True" /> <param name="ShowDiplay" value="true" /> <param name="AutoRewind" value="True" /> <embed width="320" height="260" hspace="320" filename= "christmastreefestival.avi" autostart="True" showcontrols="True" showstatusbar="True" showdiplay="True" autorewind="True" border="1" src= "christmastreefestival.avi"></embed> </object> </p> </body> </html> Thank you as always, Best wishes Graeme
  8. Hello there, I think I've eventulaay got it. Just a couple of errors on validation, one where maybe the meta tag is no longer valid and another one about white space! I still can't get the favourite icon to display in IE but hey ho! Thank you for ALL your help. Best wishes Graeme
  9. Andrea, I'm trying to find the Nav div styled in the CSS and I can't find it!! I've looked in default.css and menu.css, help!!
  10. Hya Andrea, I thought I had done that, the code is #container { width: 921px; /* was 90% */ padding: 0; background: #fff url(../images/linen.jpg) repeat; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; } Thank you
  11. Hello again, I used Coollew's advice for the flash code and it is great now, thank you. It validates now all except a few issue. I set the top image width to 921 insread of 90%. All seems good at the resolution I use but I'm wondering about it again Andrea. Thanks, Best wishes Graeme
  12. Thank you, I'll follow your advice. Can I just ask one more thing? Do I replace all of the code for the Flash movie with yours? I tried this and the movie wouldn't show! Or do I replace some some with the code you gave me? Thanks again, Best wishes Graeme
  13. Thanks so much you two, I really appreciate all the help. I managed to get this piece of code to go on line 64, which has the following. * Bookmark site script- �Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (www.dynamicdrive.com) Also Coollew, could I replace all of the code I have with the code you suggested to get the movie to run and validate, it seems a lopt less code than I had? Best wishes Graeme
  14. Got it Andrea, I'll use <br /> I was just reading a tutorial on HTML 5 after advice from a friend. A lot of the errors are associated with The language attribute on the script element is obsolete. You can safely omit it. <script LANGUAGE="JavaScript">function openwin(UrlName) { does this mean I don't have to include the script name?
  15. Wey hey, getting there I think ndrea, only 15 errors now and most of those are that I can't and understand that it is difficult to get Flash movies to validate. Just to recap, should the br tags be like this </ br> or <br /> and what should the like meta, img, br, hr's be coded like? Wow what a learning curve today! Thank you and thnanks again, Best wishes Graeme
  16. Thanks again Andrea, I'm on a roll and learning loads at the same time! Firstly I'm baffled about XHTML doctype (should be HTML) and with the XHTML doctype, all tags must be closed - that includes all your meta I'm not sure about the closing tags, should they be </> or < /> The Doctype on my index page is <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en-GB"> what do I need to change? Thank so much, Best wishes Graeme also thank you for putting the comments in, they have been a great help
  17. Wow, Thanks Andrea. I just checked your latest help and I read it quickly as I have to pop out, is it OK to ask a few more questions? Shall I use the forum or is it possible to e-mail you? Best wishes Graeme
  18. Thank you Andrea and Eddie, much appreciated. I've had another play with the code Andrea but I look forward to hearng from you but please, there is no rush Best wishes Graeme
  19. Thank you Andrea, Very much appreciated. I think I have corrected my errors, the only thing is could you explain Incorrect use of a table for the images in your footer - and the table cells aren't closing properly, plus there are 2 empty cells Thank you as always, Best wishes Graeme

  22. Hello All, What code should I use to enable a visitor to a web site to be able to listen to an MP3 file? I would like the user to be able to click on a button to play the file then say pause etc. Thank you as always, Best wishes Graeme
  23. Hi again, What is the best way to get some text to stand out within a sentence. I used <strong> but how can I change the colour? Thank you, Best wishes Graeme
