    Nomadic Siblings

    The silence is driving me nuts. Is anyone still alive on the forums? I see many people looked at the post but nothing.... Anyways I fixed the problem I had. Here is the new code. Still bare bones none of the buttons work as I haven't got that far. But so far what do you think of the design and coding? HTML is valid Feel free to give the page a tear down and offer comments on improvements Thanks for helping a budding coder out. home.css index.html

    Nomadic Siblings

    Hello all, this is my first attempt at a real website to be posted in the future. It's at it's very basic stages. I've noticed a problem with the layout that needs fixing with Chrome, Firefox, and IE9. When the page is zoomed in or out, the layout shifts. How do I prevent this? HTML5 CODE: (Passes the W3C Validator) <!DOCTYPE html> <head> <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> <meta name="author" content="Joseph Maxwell Davies" /> <meta name="keywords" content="nomad, video, siblings, nomadic siblings, torah, teachings, articles" /> <title>Nomadic Siblings</title> <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="home.css" hreflang="en" media="screen" /> <script type="text/javascript" src="home.js"></script> </head><body> <div id="container"> <div id="webpagebanner"> <header> <hgroup> <h1>Nomadic Siblings</h1> </hgroup> </header> <div> </div> </div> <div id="leftsidebar"> <section id="logo"> <div> </div> </section> <nav id="leftsidebarnav"> <ul> <li>Home</li> <li>Videos</li> <li>Articles</li> <li>Contact Us</li> </ul> </nav> </div> <div id="maincontent"> <section> <div id="featuredcontent"> <figure> <!--<video height="320" width="480" controls="controls" poster=""> <source src="Wildlife.m4v" type="video/mp4" /> Your browser does not support HTML5 video please upgrade to one of the following: Chrome, Firefox, or IE9 </video>--> <img src="http://zipline.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/chanukah.jpg" alt="menorah" width="480" height="320" /> </figure> </div> <div class="featureselector"> </div> <div class="featureselector"> </div> <div class="featureselector"> </div> <div class="featureselector"> </div> <div class="featureselector"> </div> </section> </div> <div id="webpagefoot"> <footer> </footer> </div> </div> </body></html> CSS Code: body {/*background-image: url(https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRmopGs4E8JPZw2QSogetRzxjFhMbEPlyS8kY6hBd5mhgYQr-H4);*/background-color: #B57F35;}@font-face { font-family: Dumb1; src: url('2Dumb.ttf');}@font-face { font-family: Dumb2; src: url('3Dumb.ttf');}#container {/*background-color: white;*/width: 960px;margin-left: auto;margin-right: auto;}#webpagebanner {background-color: #EBE5AB;width: 790px;height: 150px;float: right;clear: right;border-top-right-radius: 25px;}#webpagebanner header hgroup h1 { text-align: center; width: 450px; margin-top: 35px; margin-left: 30px; /*background-color: white;*/ font-family: Dumb1; font-size: 42px;}#webpagebanner div { color: green; width: 700px; border: #B34242 solid 1px; margin-left: 45px;}#leftsidebar {background-color: #D9CE57;width: 169px;height: 760px;float: left;clear: left;border-right: blue solid 1px;}#logo { padding-top: 24px; padding-bottom: 24px; padding-left: 34px; padding-right: 34px; background-color: #D9CE57;} #logo div { height: 100px; width: 100px; background-color: red; border: black solid 1px; border-radius: 45px; }#leftsidebarnav { position: fixed;} #leftsidebarnav li { list-style-type: none; margin-top: 8px; margin-left: -1em; border-top: black solid 1px; border-bottom: black solid 1px; width: 120px; text-align: center; font-size: large; } #leftsidebarnav li:hover { background-color: white; opacity: 0.5; }#maincontent {background-color: #EBE5AB;width: 790px;height: 760px;float: left;}#maincontent section { border-bottom: black dashed 1px; padding-top: 15px; padding-bottom: 35px; padding-left: 164px; padding-right: 164px;} #maincontent section #featuredcontent { width: 480px; height: 320px; border: black solid 1px; border-radius: 50px; background-color: green; opacity: 0.5; overflow: hidden; } #maincontent section #featuredcontent figure { margin: 0px; overflow: hidden; border-radius: 50px; } #maincontent section .featureselector { width: 8px; height: 8px; border: black solid 2px; border-radius: 8px; float: right; margin-right: 10px; margin-top: 8px; background-color: red; }#webpagefoot {background-color: yellow;width: 960px;clear: both;} I use a local font but it's not really a big deal that you can't see it. How can I fix the layout so that it does not shift? P.S. Yes it's ugly right now, it's mostly laid out to show me the measurements and how the page is to be divided. Like I said it's bare bones. Or if better I have the files attached as well. But can't upload the ttf.... sorry about that. home.css index.html

    background: transparent; 50%

    haven't tried it myself, but have heard of opacity: 50%; would this work?

    Nav and body structure issue

    I am new in the foray into HTML and am attempting to create a page, but as far as the page goes I always have issues with my navigation barIs this a result of bad coding and markup? My HTML5 does validate, so does my CSS. When I set the li to float left to create a vertical bar the entire bar dissapears off the screen not to be found anywhere...HTML5 code: <!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="utf-8" /> <title>Homepage</title> <meta name="description" content="fromthericefields, blog, home" /> <meta name="author" content="Joseph Davies" /> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="header.css" /> </head> <body> <header id="mainheader"> <hgroup> <h1>fromthericefields</h1> <h2>Death and life are in the power of the tounge, and those loving it eat it's fruit</h2> <h3>Proverbs 18:21;</h3> </hgroup> <nav> <ul> <li><a href="signin.html">Sign in</a></li> <li>|</li> <li><a href="register.html">Register</a></li> </ul> </nav> </header> <nav id="mainnav"> <ul> <li><a href="index.html">Home</a></li> <li><a href="index.html">Blog</a></li> <li><a href="index.html">Gallery</a></li> <li><a href="index.html">About</a></li> <li><a href="index.html">Contact</a></li> </ul> </nav> <section> <article> <h4>Setting up fromthericefields:</h4> <h5>Posted on 10/5/12</h5> </article> </section> <aside> <blockquote> </blockquote> </aside> </body> </html> The CSS: body { } #mainheader { background: blue; margin-top: -25px; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; border-bottom-left-radius: 25px; border-bottom-right-radius: 25px; height: 200px; width: 1000px; } #mainheader hgroup { padding-top: 10px; width: 1000px; } #mainheader h1 { font-style: italic; color: #ffffff; text-shadow: 5px 5px 5px #000000; font-size: 40px; } #mainheader h2 { font-style: oblique; font-size: 20px; color: #FF0000; margin-left: 20px; margin-top: -20px; } #mainheader h3 { font-family: monospace; font-size: large; color: #AAAAAA; margin-left: 600px; margin-top: -10px; } #mainheader nav { margin-left: 810px; margin-top: -130px; } #mainheader ul { list-style-type: none; } #mainheader li { text-align: center; display: inline; color: white; } #mainheader a { text-decoration: none; color: white; } /*Main Navagation Bar*/ #mainnav { width: 900px; background: red; border-bottom-left-radius: 25px; border-bottom-right-radius:25px; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; } #mainnav ul { list-style-type: none; margin-left: -2.5em; } [b] #mainnav li { display: inline; border: solid; }[/b] #mainnav a { text-decoration: none; color: white; text-align: center; } The place where the issue occurs is in bold.setting the display to inline, when I go to adjust the width, nothing happens but they stay the same sizeset it to float: left the whole thing dissapears!Why?

    Nav and body structure issue

    I posted the whole thing as I didn't know which part wasn't functioning correctly. But thanks to Ingolme I might have the problemsolved, but have to wait for the computer to be available to tweak my code a bit. You're right I'd never thought about the text resizing.I'd better make sure I remember for the future. Looks like the computer is free. Whoops..... Spoke too soon... eh!Thanks for your input (both of you) cheers!

    Nav and body structure issue

    Hi, I'm starting out with HTML5/XHTML and CSS/CSS3 and am soon getting around to JavaScript. I have a basic structure of my website that I've been making to practice improving my skills. Building it, it works on Firefox (No support for Chrome or IE9 yet, haven't got around to that) until I zoom in and out, then it breaks. Most speficially the Navagation bar... What am I doing wrong? Here is the HTML <!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en"><head> <meta charset="utf-8" /> <title>Home</title> <meta name="description" content="" /> <meta name="author" content="fromthericefields" /> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width; initial-scale=1.0" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="main.css" type="text/css" /> </head><body> <div id="all"> <header> <h1>fromthericefields</h1> <h2>Death and life are in the power of the tounge, and those loving it eat it's fruit.</h2> </header> <nav> <ul id="mainav"> <li id="leftnav">/</li> <li><a href="index.html">Home</a></li> <li><a href="blog.html">Blog</a></li> <li><a href="advntr.html">Advntr</a></li> <li><a href="about.html">About Us</a></li> <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li> <li id="rightnav">\</li> </ul> </nav> <section id="maincontent"> <article> <h2>Home:</h2> <p> Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

    css style please help

    background-color: grey; for main background colorbackground-image: url(bgimage.png); for background imageAs for navagation bar there should be plenty of references in w3c schools website and other sites showcasing various examples.

    YouTube videos

    Can't you use the embed tag code provided by YouTube or use the object tag? Or perhaps the new video tag in HTML5?

    Doctype

    Looking at the list, I have no need to worry as I already use CSS for styling and follow Strict XHTML guidelines in my code.Thanks for the reference list, will come in handy as I learn.
  11. fromthericefields

    Doctype

    Is it ok to go ahead and use the new doctype for HTML5 eventhough I am not using any of the new tags, but am basically using XHTML Strict until perhaps in the future I may use some of the tags and features. Is this acceptable? So far everything validates in the validator, but wonder if this is good practice to use a HTML5 doctype where there is no HTML5 markup in the source code.
