  1. What are the advantages of using a virtual box ?


    Funny I see this thread here because I was thinking of making one lately.


    Is it mainly just to view the website in other browsers such as ie 6, 7 and 8 or are there more benefits?


    Yes I mainly use it just to test IE6 and apple operating system.

  2. Hi My name is Deb, and I'm having a very difficult time trying to get this video to work on all platforms. I've converted the video to .webm .ogg /.ogv .mp4 and .m4v. But it's still not showing up in safari on either the mac or pc platform, loading slowly in firefox on both, and not showing up at all in chrome. Here's the code i'm using:


    <video width="1000" height="768" style="width: 100%; height: 100%;" autoplay preload="auto" poster="shot0007.jpg">

    <source src="serendipity.mp4" type="video/mp4" />

    <source src="serendipity_VP8.webm" type="video/webm" />

    <source src="serendipity_libtheora_008.ogv" type="video/ogg" />

    <source src="serendipity.m4v" type="video/mp4" />



    also here's the link to the site: talentandproductions.com


    any help would be greatly apppreciated!!



    The code below should get you going in the right direction:


    <!-- first try HTML5 playback: if serving as XML, expand `controls` to `controls="controls"` and autoplay likewise -->

    <!-- warning: playback does not work on iOS3 if you include the poster attribute! fixed in iOS4.0 -->

    <video id="movie" width="1000" height="768" preload controls>

    <!-- MP4 must be first for iPad! -->

    <source src="serendipity.mp4" type="video/mp4"/><!-- Safari / iOS video -->

    <source src="serendipity_vp8.webm" type="video/webm; codecs=vp8, vorbis" />

    <source src="serendipity_libtheora_008.ogv" type="video/ogg; codecs=theora, vorbis" />

    <!-- fallback to Flash: -->

    <object width="1000" height="768" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="__FLASH__.SWF">

    <!-- Firefox uses the `data` attribute above, IE/Safari uses the param below -->

    <param name="movie" value="_FLASH_.swf" />

    <param name="flashvars" value="controlbar=over&image=__POSTER__.JPG&file=__VIDEO__.MP4" />

    <!-- fallback image. note the title field below, put the title of the video there -->

    <img src="__VIDEO__.JPG" width="640" height="360" alt="__TITLE__"

    title="No video playback capabilities, please download the video below" />



    <!-- you *must* offer a download link as they may be able to play the file locally. customise this bit all you want -->

    <p> <strong>Download Video:</strong>

    Closed Format: <a href="__VIDEO__.MP4">"MP4"</a>

    Open Format: <a href="__VIDEO__.OGV">"Ogg"</a>


    <!--small bit of script for the benefit of Android devices: -->


    var v = document.getElementById("movie");

    v.onclick = function() {

    if (v.paused) {


    } else {






    Read the comments for clarification. Basically you just needed to add a flash fallback and a script for android devices. Hope this helps.

  3. Thank you both for looking at my page :)


    It is validating now thanks Eddie


    Andrea, I got rid of the span tags and changed up the last testimony. The CSS code was mostly generated from Fireworks. As my CSS skills improve I will be better at modifying the code that Fireworks kicks out.


    Thanks again.

  4. I need your review of my page w ww.hiygin.com/herbalfiberblend/herbalfiberblend.html


    It's a simple page; my goal is to get visitors to click on the button (link)


    I've checked this in various browsers IE,FF,Chrome, Safari, Win and Mac. If anyone could check this in Opera 10 or older that would be great! Everything validated except for line 56, however it validates in Dreamweaver, (in any event I don't know what the problem is?)


    Any advice is appreciated. B)

  5. Okay I got my CSS code back up :) ....(I got to remember backup, backup, backup, backup)


    anyhow I figured out what the problem was...


    my original code was: background: url(images/button.gif) no-repeat 0 0;


    the correct working code is: background: url(images/Button.gif) no-repeat 0 0;


    Thanks Ben for pointing me in the right direction!


    I didn't realize capitalization was so important! Is this some sort of rule I just didn't know about, or was my issue some kind of fluke?


    Any comments much appreciated?

  6. I'm hoping someone can help me with this; I'm hoping it is something simple that I am overlooking.


    My design looks perfect when tested in my browser (IE,FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), however when I upload it to my server I loose my button image. The hotspot is still there but the button image is gone. (By the way it is a CSS rollover button). The button should be red with white text located below the picture of the woman under the text "Get Herbal Fiberblend Now"


    Here is a snippet of the CSS:


    #button {

    margin-left: 118px;

    margin-top: 9px;

    display: block;

    float: left;

    height: 31px;

    margin-bottom: 0;

    width: 208px;

    background: url(images/button.gif) no-repeat 0 0;





    background-position: 0 -31px;



    and a snippet of the html code:


    <a href="http://www.theaimcompanies.com/products/herbal_fiberblend/powder_and_capsules.aspx?prodcode=3217E&lid=168&AIM_AXOwnerID=628037&aimstore=y" id="button" title="Try Herbal Fiberblend Today!" alt="Try Herbal Fiberblend Today!"<span></span></a>

    <div class="clearFloat"></div>


    the webpage is: ww w.hiy gin.com/herbalfiberblend/herbalfiberblend.html


    I checked the code and the images; I uploaded it to my server the same files that I tested on my home computer. Any help is greatly appreciated. If you need any more information just let me know. Thanks in advance.

  7. It's my understanding that the surest way to know if a search engine has indexed your web page is to go to that particular search engine and insert "site:yourname.com".


    The search engine will then list all the pages it has indexed for that particularly domain.


    Remember www.yourname.com is different than yourname.com as far as search engines are concerned; so you must check both.


    Hope this helps.

  8. I have a quick question. I want to put some text on my website; for example my mailing address and phone number.


    If I make my phone number an image instead of text, will this keep my phone number away from the google robots?




    I eventually will get a separate business phone number, but for now I'd rather not have my personal number show up in a google search engine.


    Thanks in advance.

  9. Hello again. I'm still working on my site. So far everything validates and tests correctly in Firefox, IE, and Opera. However the text links in the upper left hand side under the word Products the CSS does not work properly in the Chrome browser?


    The text links should change background color and size when hovered over.


    Is it a browser behavior difference or am I doing something wrong? By the way if anyone can point me in the right direction on where I can find old browsers for testing purposes and information on browser differences I would appreciate it?


    My web site is ww w.hiy gin.com


    Thanks in advance for the help.
