  1. That guy sure knows how to cause trouble eh? Why did you think you were banned Marsh? Do you not remember changing your username?
  2. - Nav Bar On Blank Page - Integrated Nav Bar On Site Structure
  3. Well I did put together something a while ago using parts of the suckerfish css script. I got the menu working flawlessly, but I have major issues whenever I try to fit it into the area that my links are in now. I'm not at the server right now, so I can't upload the nav bar that I made, but that doesn't stop me from pasting the source. index.html <html> <title></title> <head> <style type="text/css" media="all">@import "style.css";</style> <script type="text/javascript" src="menu.js"></script> </head> <body> <div id="navigation"&
  4. I need help with a drop down menu for my site. I have found some scripts laying all over the place for this, but I am having difficulty integrating it into my current design. I'm wanting something that will be compatible with most browsers (primarily Firefox, Opera and IE). My idea is to create a hover over drop down menu called "Interactive" which would bundle the Forum/Blog/Gallery all into one. The reason behind all of this is that I have too many links at the top of the page and whenever the resolution gets too low, the links to the right simply disappear (thus killing my liquid design).
  5. Bleh, I just realized that my 404 page isn't functioning properly. I will be correcting this post haste!
  6. Yeah, I recently pulled the old design off. I decided to stick with the new look (as I did work hard on it). I'm continuing to add stuff each day and it definitely looks like the site is starting to come around. It seems that the more persistent I become, the better it looks, so I'm going to be adding content every chance I get. Thanks for the comments so far. I guess this thread is no longer a comparison, but rather, an opinion on my new site look. I have been working on my gallery and it is almost complete. Just a couple more plugins and I'm done there.
  7. Well that's a fair enough statement. I have had a couple of people say that they liked the other design better. Do you think the circuit board background is causing people to stray away from this design? I like the fact that all aspects can easily be changed through the CSS file. I also like how it uses no javascript and looks the same on most any browser you use. From a webmaster standpoint it is great, but it looks like the actual viewer doesn't seem to like it so much.
  8. Well I finially got around to redoing my entire site. I thought that I should just bite the bullet and get it done, seeing as I start college in about a month. new version So what do you guys think of the new design?
  9. I'm seeking a simple file serving OS, which would allow easy permissions handling. I also need it to easily operate without any action on the machine itself. I basically want to be able to access the files on different networks in different locations, simply by hooking it in and powering it up. This will be used for my 1TB File Container Mod. My current idea is to use W2K Pro and Cerberus FTP server, but I just need to know if there is anything else better out there. Thanks \\DOS
  10. You could log into the account that has admin access rights and then allow full control on the TextAloud program folder with the work account.
  11. I have a 19" Acer LCD as well, but I wouldn't recommend getting a widescreen version. There are many applications and games that have a hard time adjusting to the widescreen aspect ratio. To save yourself from the headache later, it would be best to stick with a standard size. I would go with either this: - Acer AL1916Ab Black 19" 8ms LCD Monitor - $169.99 After $60 MIR ...or this: - Acer AL1917ABMD Black 19" 8ms LCD Monitor Built in Speakers - $219.99 Personally...if it
  12. Very nice! I understand the basic code for styling text with CSS, but arranging text on the page using that I have no idea about. I will definitely check out the source code. Thanks! BTW: This is my site now. Another thing that perked my interest about CSS is that it can resize to different resolutions a lot better than nested tables can. Anything below 800x600 and my site looks bad.
  13. Is it best to stick with the old way of using nested tables or should a web designer implement CSS for overall arrangement instead? I ask this, because I have already constructed a site using the nested tables method, but the prospect of making it easier to manage through CSS caught my attention. What compatibility would I be sacrificing by upgrading my site to CSS and does anyone have any good articles on how to make the switch (perhaps a tutorial on the subject)? Thanks \\DOS
  14. I still find it hilarious how when MS comes out with something that validates your authenticity, they always bundle it with some "critical update". I remember when WGA came out...there were like 8 "critical updates" that needed to be installed along with it. Personally, I am about to switch to Linux on the majority of my machines and forget about MS' nagging, spamming, activating & validation BS. You buy something and expect it to be clean, simple and safe. Just wait until Vista comes out, it is going to have so much privacy invading, piracy detecting BS you won't even be able to use it.
  15. Have you ruled out hosting yourself? I did it and found it to be quite easy. I plan on putting up a tutorial on my site on how I did everything. You could get away with completely free using or pay $6/year for an actual .com address like I is up to you. You don't need a killer PC to host a site for a small margin of visitors, my "Server" is a P3 933MHZ with 512MB RAM and a 60GB HD.
  16. I will say that there is a second half to that 1st script. It is a simple html submission form: <form method="post" action="contact/send.php"> Name:<br><input name="name" type="text" size="30"><br> Email:<br><input name="email" type="text" size="30"><br> Subject:<br><input name="subject" type="text" size="30"><br><br> Message:<br><textarea name="msg" cols="50" rows="12"></textarea><br><br> <input type="submit" value="Send"> <input type="reset" value="Reset"> If th
  17. I am using the following script to send emails from a submission form on my website: <?php $to = "[email protected]"; $name = $_POST['name']; $email = $_POST['email']; $subject = $_POST['subject']; $msg = $_POST['msg']; $d = date('l dS \of F Y h:i:s A'); $sub = "Contact Page"; $headers = "From: $name <$email>\n"; $headers .= "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1\n"; $mes = "Subject: ".$subject."\n"; $mes .= "Message: ".$msg."\n"; $mes .= "Name: ".$name."\n"; $mes .= 'Email: '.$email."\n"; $mes .= 'Date & Time: '.$d; if (
  18. Jesus are like the fricking houdini of webpage code! Do you do this stuff for a living or what??? That worked quite well, thanks! Edit: your profile about the websites on the side thing.
  19. I'm trying to define a text type in my external CSS file and there is one attribute that doesn't appear to be working (display:inline;). I'm trying to keep text from breaking on lower resolutions (800x600), but it doesn't seem to be working. I basically just need something like <nobr> implemented into my css file. If I put <nobr> before and after the text that is breaking, it works...but if I try putting display:inline; in the text class in my CSS file, it doesn't work...any help? Thanks \\DOSerror
  20. I just decided to drop a <div style="height: 450px; overflow: auto"> into the table that was already in use and it worked out well. I might toss this into my css file later on...
  21. If that works, but what would the browser compatibility be with an Iframe...also how could it properly be implimented into my current code? <td bgcolor="#F0F0F0" width="250" valign="top" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" class="text"><br> <p class="updatehead">[updates]</p> <ul class="bullet"> <span class="Date">1/12/06 § 2:08PM</span> <li class="updatetext">Area For Update Text</li> <br> <span class="Date">12/29/05 § 4:23PM</span> <li class="updatetext">Area For Update T
  22. Did you make it 16x16 8bit RGB? What program did you use to make the image? The way I created mine was by using photoshop...starting the res at 128x128 pixels 8bit RGB and then resizing it to 16x16 after I was done...I saved the file as a .gif and then changed the file extension to .ico and placed it into the root directory of my website.
  23. I have an area on my main index page that is used to post updates for my site. The only problem is, when too much text gets put into this area it causes my table height to expand, which forces users to scroll all the way down the page to read all of the updates. Now I plan on putting more than just two comments in this area, so I need to make a designated scroll area on the right side of my index page. If you look here: you can see what I'm talking about. The small grey area marked as "[updates]" needs to retain its dimensions/text attributes...the only thing that I n
  24. Hmm...that's odd...I changed it before and it was still opening a new tab...perhaps it was still cached. Nevertheless, thank you.
