  1. What tools can I (should I ) use to create these images? something like illustrator? can this be done in photoshop?Thanks,
  2. Hi All, New to web design, and I am in the middle of making my first one, and i was trying to get some ideas from existing templates. I ran across a few that caught my eye, and was curiuos to know how to get these certain layouts:http://www.4templates.com/view/website-templates/0/AX0408BLIf you click on the link, and scroll down just a bit, you'll see a sample home page layout of an education site. I was curious to know if anyone knew how to layout the notepads that list the hompage's menu. I'm suspecting this is stuff that needs to be done in photoshop or illustrator? Here's another example of what i'm talking about (Need to scroll down just a bit):Example websiteNotice the bends and curves from the picture on the website, and the curves surrounding the "welcome to my website" section. So, just to finaize my question, I guess my asking, what tools what i need to create that "3d pop-out" look vs just having a boring square table? Any advice or comments is greatly appreciatedThanks again, JP
  3. Hi all, I am extremely intersted in developing good web design skills, particularly using flash and pictures. I'm currently knowledgeable with HTML, CSS, and some javascript. I wanted to mainly try and build graphical and animated websites, so I am also planning on learning Flash (actionscript?) and also try and create my own graphics. Now I know that i'm probably gettin WAAY ahead of myself, but i know that i have the drive to (at least try) and learn everything listed above. My eventual goal is maybe learn some server side stuff and database as well (but for now, that is not too important for my goal). I could really use some good tips and advice from any pros or anyone out there with some experience on what i need to get started. Any good tools, IDE's, books, tutorials out there that comes to mind? I currently have a macbook so that i can also try and do my own graphics. I heard that Adobe CS3 is a pretty powerful bundle to get, as it provides everything to create a web site? Again, any advice is greatly appreicated, hope to meet some good people on this forum....thanks again!JP
  4. Hi all, Anybody know if there's a good PHP IDE out there that I can get for free? Also if the IDE performs auto syntax error checking ? Thanks in advance for any advice.JP
  5. Hi all, I'm interested in developing a business web site for a friend....a little excited and nervous at the same time = )...I'm a java developer, and can probably utilize jsps/servlets with java backend, but the site i'm intending to build probably won't require that much.I was deciding between either ASP or PHP for server-side coding. I just wanted to get some feedback on which might be easier to use, which is more proficient, pros and cons between the two, etc....OR if there's any new language or tool out there that might by easier to build web sites.Thanks in advance for all suggestions. Later!JP
  6. Hi all, I think my topic title describes my question. I can't seem to figure out how to auto-populate a text box that is right below a drop-down field. When the user selects an item from the drop-down, the selected item should auto populate the text box.Any help is greatly appreicated.Thanks,JP
  7. Hi all, I was hoping anybody out there would have a code sample to generate an excel document with data that was pulled from the datbase. The user will be clicking on a "generate excel report" button that will call the javascript function from a JSP page. Any help is much appreciated.Thanks, JP
  8. Hi all, Real dumb question: What's the difference between a text editor and an Integrated Development Environment (IDE)? Thanks, JP
  9. Hi, I just had a question concerning my Table at the top of my page. This table is being used for my site logo and login section at the top and it spans the entire page.. <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%" bgcolor="red"><tr><td width="234" valign="top"></td></tr></table>there is a "gap" between the top of my table and the browser, leaving me whitespace. Anyone know how to get rid of it?Thanks in advance, JP
  10. Hi all, I worked on this for awhile, and i just can't seem to get it right. I have 3 tables, all with the same column names on each table: EMAIL, LASTNAME, FIRSTNAME, SIGNEDIN. the last column, SIGNEDIN contains a value of NULL or 'YES' depending on who signed in. The first 3 column values are the same for all 3 tables.I'm trying to use a join to get collect data on the email address of the people that have a value of NULL for the SIGNEDIN column from all 3 tables. now with this new list of people, i'm going to compare it to another table (TABLE_FOUR) that contains the same EMAIL column list and see if the SIGNED_IN column value of NULL matches the SIGNED_IN FIELD in TABLE_FOUR by email address. Sorry if this sounds confusing, but any help is much appreciated..Thanks, JP
  11. Hi, Anyone know of any good IDE's I can use out there for free that'll recognize ASP and/or PHP? Thanks, JP
