      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~

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.
I think OSX refers to the operating system on a Mac. If you are using any kind of PC then notepad is all you need. I'm not aware of any OSX in a PC environment.Hope this helps, greenbeltsorry didn't read to page 2. Edited by greenbelt

One of the steps was intended for Windows users, and the other was intended for Mac OS X users.Just like Windows runs on your computer, Mac OS X runs on Macs. The two are entirely different, just like driving two completely different cars.It sounds like you own a Windows computer, so don't worry about OS X or SimpleText/TextEdit.You have Windows, so you'll use Notepad. Mac users will use SimpleText or TextEdit.

Nothing earth-shattering, just an observation really:The color attribute, I understood, is removed in HTML5. But one item, the <HR/> tag still supports it. I wonder if this is intended to remain, or if it was an oversight.

Presentational attributes were deprecated in HTML 4.01 (They were valid in HTML 3.2)I don't think there ever was a "color" attribute. No color attribute appears in the list of attributes here: http://w3schools.com/tags/tag_hr.asp All presentational attributes are removed in HTML 5. Here's the page the the <hr> element in HTML 5, the color attribute is not present: http://w3schools.com/html5/tag_hr.asp

Thanks Ingolme.Yes, I saw that it wasn't listed, but it does work... If you insert color=red or color="red" (or any other color) inside the hr tag it works.

That is non-standard behavior so it may not work in all browsers. You should only use standard elements and attributes if you want to code a website professionally.

Okay, thanks, I just wondered. You're right of course, it's best left alone.

OSX is Apple's abbreviation for its operating system. 'OS' stands for Operating System and X is the roman numeral 10 to indicate the 10th major version.If you have Windows ____________ , you do not have OSX at all.

Something is deprecated when it is maintained only for backwards compatibility and its use is discouraged.

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 science 1) 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. ThanksJames

I am trying to figure out how, if i have an image of a video, i want the user to click on the image then it opens a popup window with a fixed size...the video would be from a youtube video... Problems I occur 1. Can't figure out how to have the image and the video url in the same code. 2. When I kind of figured it out, the window would pop up with the full youtube sight, i just need it to be the video. Please help. Thanks!

I learned to use iframe here. Yeppee! Anyway, I have created a site using OptimizePress (hope that's not a bad word around here) because I don't really know html yet. The work I do is in Direct Sales or Network Marketing and the company I am with provides a replicated website which doesn't do much good (useless) for my marketing purposes. So, I'm attempting to use iframe (using html) to create a page inwhich to market to my customers. The problem I am having is the allotted space the replicated site provides seems to be too small to accommodate my OptimizePress Site and is cutting off a portion of the page. Is there a "work-around" to get the OptimizePress Page to "fit" within the replicated site? You may CLICK HERE to view the page to obtain a better understanding of this issue. If there is not a way to achieve this then, are you able to offer some suggestions? Thanking you in advance. Chris

Greetings, I have checked out the turorials, and I am a bit confused about something trivial. I am very new at this game :Unsure: 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??? :(:huh:

Hello there, No need to upload it to server, just save it on your browser and compile it. There is the output what do you want.
