    Php Code Help

    It is common practice to make your header an escape hatch to the home page. This will salve your problem. I have never used that program before, but there should be some kind of navigation for the pages. Then add the home link, or add a div to the page for your navigation.
  2. Well not really, it looks good. But here are a few things for aeshetics that could be done but not necessary. On the rounded top above the logo there is a little corner pointing out. The header is one pixel to far to the right, this should fix the problem. One the drop down main nav children make them the same width as the parent and round the bottom corners of the last child to match the top corners of parent menu item, meaning on hover. Also put a 1px bottom border on each of the drop down children. On you sidebar menu instead of squares for bullets use >> or something else. Again the site looks nice and clean good job.
  3. I would suggest going to wordpress.org and doing a search there. It is the wordpress site and has all the answers for wordpress. Sometimes you have to look a little but it has not failed me yet.
  4. I Googled for you and here you go, http://www.mortgagec...org/free-tools/ If foe some reason this does not work for you this is what I googled, code for a Mortgage Calculator in php, and came up with a lot.
  5. Andrea is awesome right. I would like to add just this little bit on the id and class thing. Although she explained it very well. Here is how I explain on when to use one over the other. Like she said id's only once per page, classes as many times as you need. I am adding this, use id's for your division of content and your classes for styling. This is just a good rule I read somewhere a while back somewhere and like the simple expination.
  6. I looked at code academy before to see what it was and personally I do not like it. Check out this site it is where we all go to from time to time http://www.w3schools.com/default.asp
  7. I tried to log in using facebook because I never use it anyway just to test like buttons. Here is the thing all I got was a white page.
  8. Here is where I get the code for the face book like button like you want https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/
  9. I am not sure but part of what they mean by dated is your code. Maybe try updating to html5 or at least use divs instead of tables. And use id's and classes in an external style sheet. The style is kinda 90's. The site looks good but jsut saying this might be what they mean by dated. This might help I do not know but it is worth a try.
  10. I just found this thought you might like it for your images. http://www.websitecodetutorials.com/code/photo-galleries/fancybox-photo-gallery/fancybox-photo-gallery-demo2.php
  11. I like http://dukapress.org/ it is free and very easy to use. Has great documentation and support. One time I was having a problem and the developer of the plugin asked to have access to my site and he would fix it for me. Was a little nervous as this was my first time trying this plugin so I did a backup and let him in. In about 20 min he emailed me and fixed the php to do what I needed.
  12. Here is a video series that shows you how to build one yourself. And no it is a developer job not a designer's job. A designer makes things pretty for the user and a developer makes it work.
  13. Well then, it will be a very good learning experience for you. Remember always keep learning. I try to learn something new every day.
  14. I can not help much with that without going and playing with your code. But here is the place to go. http://lokeshdhakar.com/projects/lightbox2/ and click on the support link it will take you to the form that the guy made to help out with problems with lightbox2.
  15. I do not know why I am so bone headed sometimes but I just figured out what you are doing. You should not have to have a whole new page for each large photo. You can use javascript and do a show hide on each one. Have it connected to your next and previous buttons. A gallery effect only you hide all but the one you want to view. This way you only have one page for all of the large images. Another Idea is to have the thumbnails horizontal say 4 or 5 depending on how they look with the larger image on top changing when the thumb is hovered on. Just throwing out suggestions. I like the lightbox, some say it is overused but it is all subjective. When I show my new sites to friends and family for testing they all say "cool" when they see the lightbox.
