  1. Hi there I am using MySQL in "phpmyadmin.eu.ionos.host" and want to change a column to 'UNIQUE' as I don't want to accidentally fill the table with repeat data using an erroneous php loop and each image must be unique. The table is: 2 Image char(200) utf8_unicode_ci SQL won't let me change the column to 'UNIQUE' as it says that there is a duplicate column 'Image'. The phpmyadmin SQL seems to be trying to add another column, which is what I dont want. 1and1 have very recently changed their software and there seem to be a lot of gremlins in it. Any comments?? Regards Max
  2. Hi everyone Nowadays, when one calls a website on a mobile device, the server will load an alternative web page. E.g. if one calls www.examplewebsite.com on a mobile, then the page that one will see is something like www.m.examplewebsite.com. How does HTML identify the type of device, beit PC, laptop, iphone, tablet etc. ?? I have read the w3schools pages on the subject and followed their advice, but am interested in at least modifying my CSS specifically ofor a mobile device. Thanks in anticipation. Max
  3. Thanks, dsonesuk. I will work on your advice. The FastStone looks really good - I will probably just use that in future instead of MS Paint. I think the imagick is a bit beyond my powers of understanding, to be honest. Thanks Max
  4. Hi there I have a website ( www.beautifulcastril.com ) which has approx 1,400 images of the area. I have just included a 'view images' section which displays thumbnails whch you can then click on to see the full sized image. The images from which I am producing the thumbnails are 512 x 384px and the large images are 1600 x 1200px. As I am displaying the images at a width of 150px, I would like to use php to reduce the 512px images to 150px before download to reduce server load and screenfll time. I have looked through the code from justsomeguy but it seems awfully complex (to a simple soul like me!). Is there no php instruction such as 'resize('myimage.jpg',150) ?? I don't need to test for the existence of a file as I have just found it with glob(). I have trawled through the imagick manual but just get more and more baffled, apart from the fact that it seems that my server (1and1.es) doesn't support imagick. I can always trawl through 1,400 images and load them individually into MS Paint, resize them, save them on the PC and then upload them via FileZilla but it will take hours and is not very elegant. All advice will be much appreciated. Regards from a very sunny Spain. Max all_images.php
  5. Hi all, Some forum type websites show how many people are viewing at any one time - can you do that in php or do you have to use JavaScript? HOW??? Any advice would be gratefully accepted. Max
  6. Isn't using Dreamweaver cheating? I like SciTe.

    Hi Just a question to satisfy my curiosity. I have a favicon which is 16 x 16px. I link it in the <head> section like this: <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.beautifulcastril.com/BC/favicon.GIF" type="image/icon" /> <link rel="icon" href="http://www.beautifulcastril.com/BC/favicon.ico" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon" /> and have the favicon saved twice, as .GIF and .ico in the correct directory as above. Now, when I load a new page the icon doesn't appear but if I refresh the screen about 5 times it eventually does. I'm using Google Chrome as a browser. The odd thing is that if I click on 'view page source' then the code listing immediately gets the favicon! Could it be that the two <link>s are inhibiting the favicon in some way? Regards Max
  8. Many thanks for everyone's help.
  9. I just want to apply some CSS to certain anchors and nothing else. I suppose I could use <a style = "width:.....etc.... ...or would <a class = "area1" href.....etc> ?????
  10. Thanks again dsoneuk. Seems a strange rule to have, to me. It works live as well. I have utterly NO IDEA how to resolve this.
  11. Interesting problem with the W3 schools checker 'Nu Html Checker'. I am using a CSS file that I have written which includes a reference 'area1'. I am calling it on many occasions e.g. <a href="mountains.php" id = "area1">Mountains</a> as I only want 'Mountains' to be affected by this particular CSS. When I run Nu Htnl Checker, I get this: Error: Duplicate ID area1. From line 330, column 148; to line 330, column 185 ></td><td><a href="mountains.php" id = "area1">Mounta Surely I can use a piece of CSS more than once in an html document??
  12. Thanks, dsonesuk - Seems to have sorted that one!
  13. Hi, I am using 'Nu HTML Checker' and it is throwing up the error "Bad value 100% for attribute width on element img: Expected a digit but saw % instead.". Also, the W3 Schools html references says that img width should only be pixels but how can you then scale an image depending on screen size? Using percentages for image width seems to work in Chrome. Have they really not allowed for assigning a percentage to img width??
  14. That is strange Ingolme. If I click on http://www.w3schools.com/howto/howto_js_slideshow.asp and then go down to the first "Try it yourself" (under the "add javascript" and above "Automatic slideshow") then it shows ?s instead of arrows. I now have it working in my program as I have changed the characters as seen in my post above. Thanks for your help on this everyone.
  15. Ok, thanks. Found it here: <a class="prev" onclick="plusSlides(-1)">?</a> <a class="next" onclick="plusSlides(1)">?</a> ....which I changed to: <a class="prev" onclick="plusSlides(-1)">Prev</a> <a class="next" onclick="plusSlides(1)">Next</a> Seems an odd character to put in a demo though. This also works:... <a class="prev" onclick="plusSlides(-1)">❮</a> <a class="next" onclick="plusSlides(1)"❱</a> Max
