  1. I'm trying to get an ebook offline - http://www.cse.yorku.ca/~peterc/VBhandbook/ - perhaps even remake it with something that looks a bit better. The first thing I'm trying to do is site rip the entire book. Can anyone suggest any tools? I hate to regoogle the wheel if there's a common tool. I've tried wget but for some reason I can't get it to install on my laptop (Boxing Day Win7 64 machine). I tried HTTrack but while I think it's working it only downloads the front page. I'm looking at the code and it appears that all the links I need are tangled in this js file - chapMap.js - any sugges
  2. alrighty then looks like you guys have a handle on this instance and in the future i'll just PM a mod if i get more profile spam. thanks.
  3. just wondering if there's any tool for reporting spam. I have a few messages on my profile that are obviously of the automated BOT variety and i don't see how you report them as spam.
  4. on top of which my point was that I had tried googling and found nothing concrete. The point is academic however. I think if i recall correctly I ended up going to Wordpress as a CMS and from there I obviously have a built in RSS feed. Thanks.
  5. Redacted - http://pastebin.com/7VWdWmbP Current HTML http://pastebin.com/hGqDiyX5 It seems to me like my problem is I can't get swfobject.removeSWF("videodiv"); to work. <script type="text/javascript"> $(function () { $('#switchtimer').countdown({ until: '+6s', // Time expires 60 seconds from load then calls change_video alwaysExpire: true, onExpiry: change_video }); function change_video() { var next_video = "Y4vLhJuKHxg"; // set next_video variable var ytid = next_video // change video from CD2LRROpph0 to Y4vLhJuKHxg swfobject.rem
  6. well hey lookie there he's done the work of finding web design forums. bookmarks away.
  7. yep definitely need to ask her what kind of content. Perhaps ask her for a webpage that does what she wants, or take a look at these. http://mashable.com/2009/09/04/facebook-widgets-2/ http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
  8. Thanks for the help. I was talking it over with some of my twitter friends and they recommended I just switch timers. I've instead moved on to this jquery countdown timer. http://keith-wood.name/countdown.html It actually would have gone a lot smoother had I realized days before that you can't start an ID with a number. I was just about to post here asking for help when I decided to see if my ID was the problem and voila. So as you can see on the site (http://bit.ly/gEqd5k) I got the timer on. It's counting down fine. I even got the colors flipped. My issue now is that I can't seem
  9. In the simple but kinda off topic category: I want to maintain a simple changelog. Basically a bullet list of changes I've made as well as a bullet list of changes I'm planning. A simple .txt document will handle it for me for the most part but I'd like to be able to share this document with the other people I'm working with. I was thinking does anyone know of anyway to have a simple document or webpage (I can format it in html if it easier) broadcast as an RSS feed. I was considering something like Google Docs but I don't know if you can broadcast a google doc to an RSS feed every time yo
  10. Looks fine to me so I'm assuming you fixed the problem. But in case you haven't I did have an idea. You want a black (image) background, white posting area and black text? What you can do with the CSS is make your background black, then put your posting area in a wrapper DIV. Then define the background of that wrapper DIV to be say either full on white or if you want to get crazy make a semi-transparent gif. That way they could see thru it to whatever that background image is. Just don't make it so transparent it makes reading the text hard.
  11. so yeah it's good work. it looks well enough. in my opinion most of the problems are in the backend. I only looked at the first page (index) but I made as many notes as I could. I tried to be as clear as possible because I'm not sure how much knowledge you have in this but I just basically reorganized that index page wrote down the changes I made and why and you should be able to apply it to the rest of the site. There were three types of changes basically some were errors or erroneous code. Like for instance you had a CSS ID defined that you never used. Some where personal opinion like I
  12. yeah i realize this. I thought it meant that the server had to have PHP capability not that the page itself had to be explicitly labeled but I actually did try changing it to PHP and the page stopped loading period. Alright there are now two files http://bit.ly/fDQkNL (.html)- loads with the error http://bit.ly/g8qJ4G (.php) - does not load at all. here's what the source of the PHP version shows me <html> <head> <style style="text/css"> .lcdstyle{ /*Example CSS to create LCD countdown look*/ background-color:black; color:lime; font: bold 18px MS Sans Serif; pad
  13. It's my understanding that if I didn't have PHP enables my .php files wouldn't work. and they do so I assume that yes I do have PHP. Here's what the index.php looks like. I've uploaded an entire copy of the site if anyone could test it and make sure my code is correct I would appreciate it. 31_demo.zip <?php include 'inc/header.inc'?> <section id="content" class="grid_12 align_center"> <a title="Logo" href="video_only"><img src="img/31logo.jpg" width="500" height="333" border="0" /></a> <br /> <div id="countdown_timer"></div> <script
  14. I'm working with a script from DD http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex6/universalcountdown.htm I manage to get everything in my site but my debug mode shows that it's unable to get the current time 31theseries.com ehh i'll turn off the Debug and show you here http://bit.ly/gUcQ7U On my local server I get "Invalid Date" instead of the current time on my web server so obviously I'd like to get the correct time and that should give me the timer I want, but also I'm curious if there's a way to fix the time zone. My local time zone is GMT -05 I'm East Coast (Atlan
  15. so I'm trying to work with this tab script http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/ddtabmenu.htm and while the tabs and the mouseover graphics and stuff work fine. I'm having trouble with the descriptive text. it's just not showing up at all and I'm not sure why. i attached my files but if you want me to copy-paste I'll do that. GC-960 Mock-Up.zip
  16. bah. looks like i'm gonna have to upgrade from 3.0.10 of firefox. this is going to be a pain in the neck. between TagSifter, Adblock, and now Firebug I don't know how people use nonFirefox browsers. I mean I like Chrome it's shiny and fast but a flash block isn't enough.
  17. forgive me if Photoshop does this better than GIMP but I'm running into an issue as I become proficient at image manipulation. I have a growing library of fonts on top of what I already had installed in my system. Now 90% of my system fonts are more or less uesless, symbol fonts, foreign language fonts or ugly/plain fonts. Basically I have this huge list of fonts to scroll thru every time I need to do something. Is there anyway to organize them, or am I stuck having to basically memorize all the fonts I use. P.S. if anyone knows how to change the default font on GIMP I'd be interested in t
  18. well. 2min45 is the fastest I've ever been sold on a product. I'll finish the video later tonight but I get it, and I like it.
  19. sorry to hijack but what is Firebug. specifically what does Firebug do that the developer bar doesn't. I don't usually bother but i can edit css and html live with the dev bar. I'm just curious as to why I would need Firebug in addition.
  20. with the help of http://www.tools4noobs.com/online_tools/youtube_xhtml/ i did get the YT to validate but I'm not going to put any more effort into the rest. thanks for all the help guys.
  21. thanks that does seem to have cleared up most of my issues. Turns out on top of the copyright symbol breaking stuff I also forgot to close a tag and a bunch of other small things. At the moment it validates except for my youtube embed code, the twitter widget code and whatever stuff they add on at the hosting site. I ended up with 100px of extra side room on the schedule. Maybe I just didn't understand the effects of padding correctly because if i change it from 500px to 400px. I guess I just need to find a better picture than that projector screen and I'll be ok.
  22. http://www.userqqqq.123bemyhost.com/ (there are two style sheets) I'm working on a new layout for this site I'm doing and I can't seem to figure out why this one area is all messed up. so as you should be able to see what I'm trying to do is put a video below the nav bar and then some text to the right. The video part is find and dandy. The text by itself also looks alright. But when I add a border to the text box I get this crazy set of boxes instead of a single square like with the video (when I added a border). I would have left it alone but I'm trying to put a background behind the te
  23. padding... there it is. oh man thank you. yeah i realize the wrap div isn't even there anymore but that has been bugging me for the last few days. That is awesome. I think I even like that method better than the one I'm doing to recreate it. You have my eternal gratitude. Now I can finally make some progress.
  24. naa. .the horizontal scroll is left over from my attempts to flip my menu from the left side to the right side. I didn't even notice it until a few weeks ago. I'm changing it from a vertical menu to a horizontal one. I'm just trying to remember how i created the middle section. It appears to be about 80% of screen width .. but I don't see where I set that.
  25. I'm trying to recreate my current design in wordpress but I'm making errors with my CSS. I can't remember how I created my content width. I like the way the #padding area is centered but I can't remember how I did it. http://gloriouschurch.ca/index.php the only thing i see is an old wrapper id that's at 900px but that isn't even used. if someone could take a look at it I'd be extremely grateful.
