      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content. Prohibited Content includes any Content that breaks any local, state, county, national or international law. Prohibited Content also includes: No direct or indirect advertising or websites, forums, products, services No hijacking of posts (do not post your question in someone elses) Content that infringes upon any rights [ex. MP3s and ROMs] (including, but not limited to, copyrights and trademarks) Abusive, threatening, defamatory, racist, or obscene Viruses or any other harmful computer software False Information or libel Spam, chain letters, or Pyramid schemes Gambling or Illicit drugs Terrorism Hacking or cheating for internet/online games Warez, Roms, CD-Keys, Cracks, Passwords, or Serial Numbers Pornography, nudity, or sexual material of any kind Excessive profanity Invasive of privacy or impersonation of any person/entity Hacking materials or information Posting Tips   There are more BBcodes than there are buttons for on the reply menu. To get the full list, click "BB Code Help" underneath the clickable smilie face menu. Use   for small snippets of code Use   for lengthy snippets of code Use   if your snippet is HTML (optional) Use   if your snippet is SQL (optional) Rules of Conduct   Be nice. There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

Before you ask a question in this forum, you should check out our HTML Tutorial.For our HTML Tutorial: W3Schools HTML TutorialFor a complete HTML Reference: W3Schools HTML Reference

Greetings, I have checked out the turorials, and I am a bit confused about something trivial. I am very new at this game :) so here goes. In order to test my HTML page I can just save it on a browser and then open it, or so I have to upload to a server to test them??? :(:)

You can test out the page you are making without having to upload the page to a server, so you CAN do it from your destop. But if are doing that, then images that are linked relative will not show up on that page .

If you have the images on your computer, then there shouldn't be a problem.

We mods have no power over w3schools.com content. If you are looking for an email to write to, look here:http://www.w3schools.com/about/about_helping.aspmail_hege.gifThat's the mail to use...

No it's not covered so don't worry.You cant do it the way you are probably thinking:
body{  background-image:url('bg.jpg');  width:100%;  height:100%;}

This wont work :blink: Basically you have to use a div to contain and stretch the image.Then use another div (that sits on top of the previous one) for page content.This gives the illusion of a normal page with a backround and content. :) credit to cssplay for this solution: http://www.cssplay.co.uk/layouts/background.html :blink: Here is my "chopped" version which you might find a little easier to implement:http://scott100.atspace.com/Background_Stretch.htm :blink:

Hi,I feel it is best to use the forums, because it is more live if you know what I mean, people can answer your questions, whereas it is sometimes harder to follow a tutorial.And also someone is bound to know about what you need to know on here!

Hello,I tried my best not to trouble you guys with simple questions. Below I pasted instructions from the tutorial on this post. I got the first two lines down to a science1) If you are running Windows, start Notepad.2) If you are on a Mac, start SimpleText.The next line and on is where I threw in the towel.3) In OSX start TextEdit and change the following preferences: Open the the "Format" menu and select "Plain text" instead of "Rich text". Then open the "Preferences" window under the "Text Edit" menu and select "Ignore rich text commands in HTML files". Your HTML code will probably not work if you do not change the preferences above!What is and where do I find the OSX? If I can find the OSX I believe I can follow from there. I am running Windows XP. Is there anyway whatsoever you can help me? I really need to learn HTML and I will not give up until I succeed. We will not worry about step 4 at this time. I just need to know where the OSX is.Thanks James

Mac is another kind of computer and an operating system (OS). Mac OSX is a version of that OS, just like XP is just another version of Windows. You have Windows XP, so that doesn't concern you in any way.
