  1. Hi. I could use some help with something I'm trying to get compatible on all devices. So far, I got it working on everything except SOME iPhones and my parents iPad. I have two pages that both have an animation block done with an SVG tag containing a number of image tags, each containing a png image. Those all have a unique class defined, and are then animated via GSAP (Greensock, a Javascript-based animation system). I also have a still image png of that animation to serve as a fallback for devices that don't support SVG and/or Javascript. I have the page set up so it uses the f
  2. Yep, I can't say I've ever seen this kind of thing before... Normally, it just would open up the new window, and that would be on top of the old one. I thought maybe it was some weird cache/buffer reaction, but I don't know.
  3. Normally, I'd jump on that, as I am always learning new things...as I'm a one-man-band over here. But, I have way too many other things I'm currently learning/doing.
  4. Hi. I'm really hoping I can get some feedback/help. Sorry if this is in the wrong area. I see that someone else was asking about PayPal here. I sell a handful of digital download files online, using a third-party e-commerce service, but have recently been looking for alternatives. It's been a very frustrating battle, researching the various options, finding/trying them, only to find many are confusing, lack proper documentation, lack needed features, or assume knowledge regarding requirements/setup is 'common sense'. I've looked at things like OpenCart, AbanteCart, etc... but didn't
  5. I don't even know what e4x is referring to!
  6. Yikes, that's way out of my league... I know next to nothing about PHP scripting. Thing is, the link would be in an email, not a webpage... so not much control can be had. I can't just email the files themselves, as they are well over 10 megs. This is basically a fully manual process, where I get notified by PayPal when someone deposits money (makes an order), and I then prepare the folder and file, and email a direct link to that file. There's obviously better (and fully automated) ways to do it, but creating that is well beyond me (and I've had a seriously frustrating time t
  7. [ Shrugs ] Don't know... I still have to check the Flash file itself, and see if the canvas itself isn't white. I'm assuming it is, since I'm sure I'm not using a white rectangle as the background. But, I do have the check that to be sure. Ya, maybe the Flash plugin itself has a grey background.
  8. Ha! Once again, my tradition of figuring out the answer right after posting the question still continues... Okay, so one (good) solution is to simply upload it as normal, as a .mov file... and then rather than have the customer click the link in the email, have them right click on it, and select Save As.... So, the only question, though, is whether this function is available on all devices/browswers? (I guess we'd be talking about email programs, since they would be right clicking on the link in their email program, unless they are using web-based mail). Just want to be sure it'l
  9. Sorry if this is not an appropriate location for this question, but I'm hoping someone can help out here. It's more a browser thing than HTML, technically... If I give a link (in an email) to an online .mov file, I find that browsers like Firefox will autoplay the file, and will not allow the user to save the file. I'm trying to find a method to link the file, and allow the person to download the file to their computer. (I'm delivering digital download products) I could simply rename the extension, so it won't be recognized as a movie file, and instruct the customer to rename it
  10. It's strange... The blank browser window is (by default) white (...I assume a full white)... my HTML page is also full white (and therefore, it should be seamless). However, when my page loads, there's a brief moment where the page goes to a light grey, and in doing that, the small white embedded Flash movie block (that is set as white as well, to make it invisible against the white HTML background) is briefly revealed. I wonder what that brief moment of grey is? I can't seem to control that. Everything (that I'm aware of) is set to white.
  11. Ya, but the weird thing is, on my browser, the behavior seemed random. Sometimes, the newly opened window remained on top (new browser window was on top of the first one). On other (seemingly random) occassions, the new browser window would open, the content displayed, but then the first window would suddenly go on top of it again (within a second or so). I've never seen that kind of behavior before, as the new window (previously) always displayed on top, and never switched back to the first one again. Maybe I'm using the term 'focus' the wrong way, as I think that applies more to which
  12. Another odd little thing... I have an animated GIF logo, set as a hyperlink to enter a site. All works just swell, but I noticed that SOMETIMES, when you click on the GIF, it will disappear (replaced with a white outline) before the next page loads... almost as if there was a missing rollover graphic. Most times, it works fine. It's only occassionally that it does this. Weird that the image would disappear when it's loading the next page. Any theories and/or suggestions on how to 'fix' that? (My appologies to anyone who violently convulsed when I mentioned 'animated GI
  13. If I have a hyperlink to another page, and have it set with target="_blank", does the newly opened page always get focus (...or, maybe I'm using that term wrong... will it always open up and be displayed on top of the previous page)? I always assumed it did, and it always seemed to. But, as I've been working on one of my sites today, and tested one of the links, I think it opened the new page, but kept focus/display on the previous page. So, I'm wondering if this is ever possible, and if so, what can be done to assure the new page is always displayed. This was on Win7, BTW. [A
  14. Yep, sounds like it'll do the job just fine. Pretty much all of the websites I've done have had a common header, nav buttons, footer, etc. I've been thinking of finally utilizing something like the php include to make it easier to do global changes. Thanks!
  15. Ya, I get the whole concept of preloading... I'm just wondering if the concept of the code I showed there only serves to load images (and not display them)... and if that's the case, I just wanted to verify that unless you are loading images that will appear 'later' (on another page, or images that are currently hidden or next in line to be showed in a slideshow or whatever), the method will be redundant and pointless. If the images are on the first page, preloading them would serve no purpose, and would be the same effect as simply having them on the page, as far as load+display order and sp
