  1. I like it. Big, bold and you kept it somewhat simple. Loads quick which is good. One thing, In my browser safari 5.0.1 your social media buttons are dropping out of the box about 15-20 pixels.
  2. Like FC said, don't trust DW. I went through the same thing. Just make sure it validates and check all the browsers... even thou i make sure it validates and still looks good in the browsers i still get nervous and think someone going to click and the site will come down like a house of cards. lol newbies... can ya blame us?
  3. <object classid='clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000' width='470' height='320' id='single1' name='single1'> <param name='movie' value='http://player.longtailvideo.com/player4.6.swf'> <param name='allowfullscreen' value='true'> <param name='allowscriptaccess' value='always'> <param name='wmode' value='transparent'> <param name='flashvars' value='author=JayMoore&description=MPD&duration=3:52&file=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qreu9IW-H1I&title=MPD&backcolor=666666&frontcolor=FFFFFF&lightcolor=000000&screencolor=CCCCCC'
  4. Hey FC, I wanted to give the player a try and just quickly did and 'embeded code' that the site provides. Returned 43 errors. lol I haven't made attempt to use SWFObject yet. I'll give it a read through thou' and try it that way. I'll post back.
  5. Is there a work around for fixing this...? It returns errors... anyone else have this issue ?
  6. I was kinda thinking along the same lines.... Its just that being new to all this makes you somewhat 'panicked'... For instance: I read that the css should be between 8 and 12kb.... mine was at 14kb... "OH $#@% i thought, so i started to cut the bloat from the SS. lol.... Its good thou, gets you knocking out crap you don't need and getting used to implementing shorthand props'.
  7. With todays current sped of the internet... at what point should the css file size be taken into consideration? is 10 to 20kb pushing it... I know it depends all on how many pages you have an all. Like what are some of the largest/ smallest sizes you've done? I'm just curious that's all.
  8. for 19.99 you can't go wrong... Trust me.... you wont regret it and the people on here are extremely helpful if you don't understand something or have a question. The response time to questions or concerns are faster than Apple.....
  9. These are the errors listed below: 97 rss-menu Property -moz-border-radius doesn't exist : 20px 20px 98 .rss-menu Property border-radius doesn't exist in CSS level 2.1 but exists in : 20px 20px 112 #twitter Property -webkit-border-radius doesn't exist : 20px 20px 113 #twitter Property -moz-border-radius doesn't exist : 20px 20px 114 #twitter Property border-radius doesn't exist in CSS level 2.1 but exists in : 20px 20px 197 ul.social-media-cons Property -webkit-border-radius doesn't exist : 20px 20px 198 ul.social-media-cons Property -moz-border-radius doesn't exist
  10. Figured it out: Im an idiot......... I had the styles for the div placed between html comments in the style sheet instead of /**/ *brain slap*
  11. Every other div is basically able to be styled.... one I added another id div it won't let me style the width or height. It just spans the length of the box. Unable to do BG color or anything. It passed strict 1.0 strict but I can't seem to get it to work. Any ideas why something like this is happening?
  12. Thanks All for the posts. I appreciate it. I do agree and read that its not wise to use Live VIew but it was driving me crazy. I tend to learn the hard way:( f12 = good idea. Thanks for the tip
  13. Okay, I created an <ol> in DW. When Live View is off : The listed items appear very close together being the default. There's not margin or padding. The li rest neatly on top of each other. Here's an example below: 1. the object, itself inaccessible to experience, to which a phenomenon is referred for the basis or cause of its sense content. 2. a thing in itself, as distinguished from a phenomenon or thing as it appears. 3. Kantianism . something that can be the object only of a purely intellectual, nonsensuous intuition. When i click "Live View" to sample it t
  14. Im touching on Javascript and doing some tutorials... *BTW: Hardest thing I've ever tried to learn* I noticed the external jquery.js for my rollover tutorial file to be utterly impossible to understand... Did someone actually sit there and type ALL that out or is it generated? I really want to know what the structure is and how to understand it so i don't 'rollover' and die due to the stress that the amount of coding i saw. lol Thanks. Also, I'm using "Javascript: The Missing Manuel" from O'Reilly press. Is there any other good sources you could recommend for a compl

  16. figured it out... have to wrap the javascript with //<![CDATA[ //]]> these tags.....
  17. Has anyone ever used Dream Weaver's programing for roll overs? I went to validate it and got like 67 error msgs.... Before It passed validation but now it gets errors galore. *any help would be great.
  18. I spent 5 hours trying to figure out why this code was not passing the W3C Validation. Kept going over and over an..... OVER THE CODE. Redid the page/ post i don't know how many times when it dawned on me after 5 hours... Why not just google " there is no attribute "aria-required" problem solved. Its for screen readers and its optional to remove the code. Unreal. So, what I learned... stick a note to your screen, "WHEN IN DOUBT: GOOGLE IT, MORON." Just thought I'd share this with everyone. lol Validation Output: 1 Error Line 191, Column 95: there is no attribute "ar
  19. Falkencreative... I owe you. If you ever need a kidney let me know. Thanks for fixing this issue.
  20. Eric, lol... i know. Im new to all this so there is a curve to learn. Believe it or not when you get some of it down, its pretty easy going. But with this i just want to kill myself. Some of the parts i thought were going to be the hardest were the easiest........ and the parts that i thought to be easiest are giving me ulcers.
  21. Thanks Falken... im gonna give it a shot now and get back to you in asap.
  22. <?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?> Nope, didn't work either. Im completely new to php/ wp theming so this is seriously driving me mad. 4:34 am, and still can't get it. So far i went edit page > select the template "embassys" in the drop down menu and still its choking me to death with not working. In the header of the "embassys" template i places the following exactly as is: <? /* Template Name:embassys */ ?> <?php if( is_page('embassy') ) :?> <?php else :?> <?php endif;?> .... then all my html follows. Its just
