  1. Managed to get server set up so issue resolved now.
  2. If you're using Linux you'll find out pretty fast that MAMP isn't an option. If you try to install the alternative, Ampps ( https://ampps.com/downloads ) and it doesn't work, as it didn't for me this week, try the page linked here. If you're a complete newb like me when you began here this page is excellent for it's clarity and succinctness, just take your time. https://io.bikegremlin.com/12127/lamp-stack-mint/ If you have a struggle with the path/link to localhost/php see the comments.
  3. All sorted, too tired staring at it for too long.

  5. Hi just wanting to make sure things are as they should be here and that there's no source files to download for the Javascript course? If there are I'm not seeing them. But I'll crack on in the meantime Thanks. Their back.
  6. I've seen quite a few of Stef's Youtube videos and from what I can tell, they buy coffee.
  7. This was a useful video I found a few weeks ago and I got a lot from it: 17 Sublime Text Shortcuts and Tips The text version he mentions is here: http://GitHub repository: https://github.com/michaelcheng429/17-sublime-text-tip PS: Let's call it 18 tips: 18] Removing a plugin from Sublime text 3: This afternoon I had to do just that and was almost demented until I found the answer below. It's mind-boggling how many people can't answer a simple question like "how can I remove a package from Sublime Text" without getting into a slavering fluster and unleashing lectures they've been waiting years to use. Excited puppies and trouser legs don't get a look in. Oh sorry, here's the answer: Go to package control by pressing Ctrl + Shift + p (or use the preferences tab on Sublime text-this shortcut doesn't work for me, that might be a Linux thing): type "remove package" then type the package/plugin name and enter to uninstall it.
  8. Thanks Stef I know what you mean. The piece of paper or maybe dedicated notebook is essential there's so many, and that appeals to my inner Luddite. But the notebook I've got with all the crossing out and scribbling feels more like clutter which I've too much of. I'm going to take the plunge. Having done some reading around it doesn't seem like there's a great deal between them. They all serve the same basic function and differ only in the trimmings. I'm going to try Lastpass because of the family option. I've a feeling this free trial might be too seductive in the convenience that's offered but I'll report back at the end of it.
  9. In the video Stef talks about disabling CSS in Chrome to see the impact it has on a website. However this is an older version of Chrome and I couldn't find a tool to do this in the current version (maybe that's my inexperience). I did find the extension "disable-HTML" in the Chrome web store by Daniel Lucks (link below). It's actually an elegantly simple control panel for this extension with straight forward "on/off" buttons for not just CSS but also JavaScript, images, cookies and pop-ups-note pop-ups are defaulted to off when you install it. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/disable-html/lfhjgihpknekohffabeddfkmoiklonhm
  10. This was about opening frog images in HTML Ch5, but turned out there was a file I had missed and not opened yet-trying get an old brain to move too fast. I'm likely to be posting quite lot on here how can I delete forum posts I've made if I can find a solution before anyone's replied?
  11. Hi Stef I had the same problem as Rich here and went through Ch4 three times. The third time I checked the code in Chrome and it had the ../ there so I tried Rich's solution to close the tab and drag it back into Sublime, still no joy. Eventually what worked was a specific "Save as.." to the friends file in the sub-pages folder. One small issue though, the friends file duplicates back into ../ though it's definitely in sub-pages. Have deleted it several times and still it reappears, is this a problem waiting to happen? The sub-pages version after the Save as.. seems to now be more up to date than the ../ version. I'm starting to think coding is what a few centuries ago used to be called witchcraft. Do we get a pointy hat at the end of this? Edit: Finally the fog has cleared. If there's ever a profanity Olympics I'm in fine shape for it after this past week. To finish I just want to say that as painful as I've found Chapter 4, well the paths side of it that is, that I knew all along it would be worth the pain for the feeling on the other side of it, which it is, and it's why I kept with it.
  12. Are there any that stand out as better than others? What are the features to look for or to prioritise?
  13. Is it a general rule of thumb for all text editors with an auto-complete feature that "You have to save the page as an .html document first. Then the auto completion will work."?
  14. Hi LSW, I posted the below as a new thread when I found nothing under "password managers" before thinking to look for more general "security" labelled topics. Any feedback would be helpful and I know you've covered some of this above already. Really I'm wondering about which ones (pw managers) and why in comparison to others. Thanks in advance Jim. PS: re the below, on 2nd thoughts the password issue is actually far more unwieldy at home than at work. Few things wind me up in this life quicker than technology not behaving as expected, just ask the printer, but the worst culprit is passwords!! Last Friday had to be written off because I got so wound up having just changed a password and later trying to log in via another browser...but enough of that and to the point. What's the professional opinion here on password managers such as lastpass, 1password, dashlane etc? I've always been suspicious of the very idea but if i'm getting involved in the world of web design I can see the password issue becoming as unwieldy as it is at work sometimes. So are password managers a good thing, a bad thing, an essential thing in this industry, a necessary evil? And if they are required some recommendations based on personal experience would be appreciated. Thanks. Now back to Curtis and the Impressions to keep the sunny Monday chilled vibe going

  16. Pretty new to HTML and in Ch4 when previewing the website in the browser from Sublime text (using Firefox on Linux mint) the home page is coming up "file not found." I've checked for "file name" & "capitalisation errors" as advised and can't see any. The 1st time it did this this morning I'd been trying to change the doc type of the files from text to html so that one's down to me (not sure I should be anywhere near tech more advanced than the kettle sometimes) so thought nothing of it. As the website the chapter's focused on was still pretty simple I deleted the entire folder and re-did things but still I'm getting "file not found" but only for the home page? Screenshot below of what's typed in Sublime text. Off to use that kettle and abuse the biscuit tin.
  17. Hi all, Jim here just beginning the Interactive Web Developer course. Only the intro done today, will make a proper start with HTML5 tomorrow and we'll see how things go.
