  1. Ok, well now I feel like a complete idiot. I mistyped the Doctype when I tried before, so now it's fixed. It helps to have fresh eyes to see what you've missed. Now I just gotta make it work better in IE6, but that shouldn't be too hard. Thanks for all the help!
  2. Thanks for the reply. I didn't even notice that. Unfortunately, that didn't fix the issue. Is there anything else?
  3. Ok, so everyone at my office is stumped, and we don't know why this is happening. Story: We have a client website, and we incorporated the Blogengine.net blog for him. We built the site from scratch and made the blog match the design. The main site is completely cross browser, it displays correctly in all versions of Chrome, IE6/7/8/9 beta, Safari, Opera, FireFox/FireFox 4 Beta. Here's the link ww w.cmarketinggroup.com/default.aspx. When you view the blog on IE, everything looks how it should, but the top navigation pieces. They have extra spacing between the items. The other browsers display the blog navigation pieces correctly. My first thought was that there must be some kind of styling that came with the blog that has some spacing for the <li> tags. I went through the CSS file, and all <ul> and <li> tags have either an id or a class tied with them, there are no high level styling for them. I then stripped out all of the CSS that came as default for the blog, thinking that something had to be causing it but it didn't fix it. Now the blog content has no styling but the header and footer are using the styling we added as it should. Here's the link for the blog ww w.cmarketinggroup.com/blog. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  4. Thanks for the comments! I'll look into why the Save to Evernote issue, don't have access to a Mac for testing. Yeah, I see what you mean about the icons. What if I were to make them yellow? I'm not a designer, if you couldn't tell ha. I'll defiantly work on it though!
  5. I've re-designed my site again, I think I'll stick with this for awhile. The URL is ww w.kyleundefined.com/ If there's any suggestions or comments feel free to let me know.
  6. Ha, it's been awhile. How's it going everyone?

  7. Hey, how's it going? A potential client approached us earlier and wanted a Flash animation piece, it's not complicated just detailed, but we don't do Flash. It's an animation, no functionality is needed, except for a few buttons. I really don't know the details of the wanted outcome, but I figured I'd post on here for anyone who is interested. If you think you can accomplish this, feel free to send me your information and I will forward it to the client. This would not be tied with my company in any way, it will be between you and the client only. Thanks!
  8. Do you want to setup the Like button for each page on your site? If that's the case, you'll have to customize it for each page. Easiest thing to do is print the code that the XFBML Facebook Like Button page gives you after you click on get code. You can use the iframe or the or the XFBML code. Then, in order to make it dynamic, I'd do something like this: <script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"></script><fb:like href="<?php echo('http://'.$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']); ?>" layout="button_count"></fb:like> That will work if you're using PHP as your language. You could also do the same thing with javascript: <script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"></script><fb:like href="javascript:document.location.href;" layout="button_count"></fb:like> Hope this helps.
  9. Mobile developers are in demand, and have risen tremendously in the last few years. I don't believe that computer use is going away, especially if all the tests ISP's are conducting to provide faster service.
  10. Have you figured this out? Instead of using the leave() function, have you tried the .hover()?
  11. I would use Google's SVN, it's good and easy to use. You can make it where only authenticated users can download or commit anything. The price seems reasonable, but it all depends on what you're doing with the site. By the way, congrats and good luck!
  12. The fade is working for me, but your images are making my browser lag way down. I don't know how you're loading them but it seems to skip every other picture.
  13. It allows you to add/edit content on your website easily without having to create the pages yourself. Mostly used for blogs, but you can use them for non blog sites as well.
  14. When I first started on my blog, I talked about how the day at work went and what went on that day. Then it moved to me doing IT work for my parents, now it's about me redesigning my site. I don't blog constantly, it's been a few days since my last post, I know my content isn't very interesting right now since I'm not focusing on that. Web development is one of those things, you either like it or you don't.
  15. I agree with Falken on this one, he pretty much hit the nail on the head. I'm not a true Web Designer, I'm a Developer. I've learned a lot in the past few years at my current company, although the Design team does the look and images, I've learned CSS very well. Like my personal site, it's not the best but it's a work in progress, it looks a lot better now than it did a few years back when I didn't know anything like I do now. It's all based on experience, the more you do it the better you get.
  16. I would say blog about anything you want. When you're working on a project, blog about what you've done and your progress with it. You can blog about what it's like to be a web design student and what you're learning and using in your work. You can still blog about anything all in one blog, it doesn't have to be limited to one certain topic. Check out w ww.gizmo do.com and see what they blog about, it's my favorite blog to read. It's mainly a tech blog, but they blog about a lot of things that aren't tech related. It's all up to you, and good luck!
  17. Yeah, that would be amazing, sounds like there would be some money in that as well. My community college was ok with their classes, I was so much further in my knowledge than everyone else going in that I got bored and stopped going to the class. I would suggest w ww.w3schoo ls.com which is pretty good online school.
  18. Thanks, it needs a lot more work done.

  19. Try "text-indent" instead of "z-index". I can't test at my house since I don't have IE.
  20. At work, I build the client sites using IE8 since that's what most of our clients use. Then I test in Firefox and get those issues worked out. When I get to Chrome, it usually looks like it should with a tweak here and there. After those three, I test Safari and Opera which hardly never need any changes. If you want to see how your site will look on different browsers and OS's, use this link, I use it at work. https://browserlab.adobe.com/en-us/index.html
  21. Wow, there's so much that they should of taught you in those classes. Sounds like they left out all the relevant lessons.
  22. Dude, nooooooooo...I just noticed that your About page Team pictures rotate, and that they're Flash. Come on bro, if you want those effects, use jQuery, a lot less resources spent and after it's done the recourses are freed. Anyway, back to the topic on hand, I agree with falkencreative. You should have a tech directory/page for stuff like that. In my site, I have a "Testing" navigation link, which isn't setup yet but that's where I'm going to do all my cool technologies testing.
  23. Just curious, when you say "combining Dreamweaver and Graphical Design" are you referring to taking a design you made from a concept to a web page? If so, then I can help you understand the basics and how to lay it all out if needed. I can help with mastering CSS and Javascript as well, just in case. Also, when you go to learn PHP, I can help guide you and help you learn. That's not my primary programming language but I know it pretty well. Like I said, if you need help with anything just ask, I'll try to help the best I can. You seam eager to learn, which is a great thing since you're not going the "Yahoo! Answers" route. Good luck with your projects and school!
  24. Only the "REAL" browsers support canvas, IE9 has support for it but it's not as good as the others.
  25. The only thing I can think of is the wall of text after the insurance types, try to stream-line that into a smaller chunk / easier to read.
