  1. Thanks. I might poke around some black hat sites and see if there's a sneaky way (one that wont get me arrested, that is ).
  2. Is there a way to tell how many visits a specific page on a third parties website has had over a given time period (eg a month). For Example: I might want to see how many times a particular blog entry has been read (assuming one entry per page, not consecutive entries on a single page), or how many times a specific item listing has been viewed (assuming no counter on the listing). I already know how to see traffic for www<dot>cnet<dot>com ; I want to see how many visitors have been to http<doubleslash>news<dot>cnet<dot>com<slash>8301-1023_3-57396842-93&l
  3. As a matter of interest: I had a hair-tearing time installing Apache - I could not get the browser to see the localhost / message confirming Apache was running. I uninstalled, and loaded up WampServer2 but had the same problem. I googled my google off trying to find fixes, many of which included editting system files, turning off firewalls, making sure there was not Port 80 conflicts and checking IPv4 and IPv6 were enabled, but no joy. Found the ApacheFriends website which is a support forum for XAMPP, so uninstalled WampServer2 and loaded up XAMPP. After a bit of pfaffing aroun
  4. Working! Thank you! OK so my first lesson was "Dont write up webpages in MSWord". It's interesting that I haven't come across this advice in any of the noobie literature I've got my hands on so far. Anyhoo, thanks again Wickham.
  5. Thanks for the tip, Wickham. I've made a note of that.
  6. Thanks! Using Notepad rather than Word did the trick. It still wont open in Opera, but Ill worry about that later once I'm a little further down the track. Many thanks!
  7. Please be gentle. Please be gentle. Please be gentle. <deep breath> Ok, I'm brand new to web design. Ive been through the w3schools site and am pouring over my "Building Websites for Dummies" Books (both the Sahlin/Snell all-in-one second edition AND the Crowther versions) but cannot seem to find an answer to this most basic of problems: When coding HTML, what program do I write it in, and what file format (ie extention) do I save it in? Ive written some very basic intro stuff in MSWord and Wordpad (Windows VISTA 32) , then saved in .HTM, .HTML, .RTF, and .TXT formats
  8. Hi folks, hope life is good for you wherever that may be. I'm new to this site and web design. I'm teaching myself from scratch using "Building Websites for Dummies" and w3schools dot com. I am an absolute beginner, and at this point need help for a lot of what seems to be assumed knowledge in the field. I know plenty about computers from the user side, but have never actually coded anything beyond "hello world" basic programs. I'm old enough to have used PC's with OS's other than Windows or Mac OS (VIC 20, Sinclair Spectrum or Microbee mean anything to anyone here?) but please don't h
