  1. Thanks, if he's able & willing to teach me please tell him to message me or leave a link/contact here....thanks.
  2. Thanks, any recommendations? Or types of courses generally offered/available?
  3. Hi, Can anyone recommend anywhere that I can learn code part time in the United Kingdom? I have been teaching myself html, css, etc on a basic level & now venturing into php, mysql, js, etc & think that having a tutor or guidance would really help speed up my learning process. Any companies or colleges offering part time courses in these area's will hopefully fill in the holes in my knowledge & help me progress. I'm not really concerned about qualification certificates, the knowledge is more important to me. Thanks for any advice. Old Guy.
  4. Thanks Guys, Great info resources. I understand that security is a very complex issue, as possible attacks can come in many forms. But I need to start to learn some basics somewhere, so will give it a go. The OWASP site is full of great info & the clips very helpful too. Thanks, I'm sure I will be asking for some more specific coding help in the near future.
  5. Hi, I'm new to writting code & looking to write a couple of secure web pages. One where you can log in & out securely using a password. Then a second where you can upload & download some files or folders. Any help on where to start, what code (asp/etc) & what best method(s) of encryption I should use? Thanks for any help or advice. Old Guy.
  6. Thanks, FoxyMod: I'm currently reading up on php & sql & as you mention they seem to be able to do what I require. DevotedMember: Whats CMS? I'm happy to write the code or assemble &/or edit patches of code. Alternatively if there are any plug ins or bits of freeware around that will save me time, then I'm happy to use them instead (but only if they work!!). Thanks.
  7. Hi, I've just built a basic web site, but I now realise (by going through the process) that I need to understand other languages & processes in order to make the site streamlined & fully functional. Because I've only learnt html & css (on a basic level) my understanding of php, sql, js, xml, etc is very poor. I therefor need some advice on what the best mechanisms are for inputting data, storing it & displaying it on the web, possibly with some type of rss feed too. The basic process the site is doing, can be described as follows: 1. Users enter data using an online form. 2. Data is stored on a database & manually verified. 3. Certain info from the database is automatically displayed on the site (but not all) in a friendly viewable format. 4. Every time the site is updated a feed is created (like an rss or blog). The first two processes I have achieved, but I am exploring ways of achieving the 3rd & 4th processes. Any advice on what methods or languages would be best to use would be greatly appreciated. I'm happy to learn any coding required. The data set can be stored in various formats (xlsx, csv, ods, tsv, etc), its really a question of the best way to interpret it & automatically display it that I am exploring. Along with creating the feed. Thanks for any advice. Old Guy.
  8. Hi, Its a google map. But I have solved the issue now, it was nothing to do with the code. I reset the chrome browser & now everything loads as it should. No idea what was blocking it from loading in chrome? From what you've said it sounds like <iframe> is the better option or possibly the js option. I will look into that with google. If anyone knows of any other options it would be good to know. Thanks. old guy.
  9. Thanks, The form was created on google drive & that embeded & works fine using <iframe> but the map as I mentioned doesn't work in Chrome. Not sure I could get the code wrong? <iframe src="full http web address" width="880" height="520" ></iframe> But maybe I have? So why would this not show up in a chrome browser & be unsupported in IE? Thanks. (I'll look into the js/api from google)
  10. Thanks dudes, Thats worked like magic....Just to improve my understanding, I get the css link & I am guessing that the instruction invalidates any previous positioning. Am I correct or completely wrong? Thanks for your expert knowledge.... old guy..
  11. Thanks dsonesuk, Have just tried all 5 options for style=overflow: & whilst they did different things to the <p> (& <div> when tried it for that too) non made the text sit under both tables. It still floats up under the shorter one. Although I did learn where the scroll bar feature is now.... Any other thoughts or suggestions welcome..... old guy.
  12. Hi, I've embeded some maps & forms on my web site using <iframe> & noticed that they don't all show up in chrome & are unsupported in IE but look fine in firefox. I've read in this forum that using <iframe> is not the best way to embed stuff, but I haven't read what the alternatives are? Can anyone explain other ways of embeding that get better results in 'all' browsers? Thanks. old guy.
  13. Hi, I am building my first web site & very new to html code etc.... One problem I can't seem to solve is that in my site I have two tables next to each other. One floating right & one floating left. They are different heights & will fluctuate in content over time as they contain variable information. Under the two tables I have a <p> footer with some text in it. I can sometimes get the text in my web editor (web expressions 4) to span the page & sit under both tables, but this never works in all browsers when I preview it. Some let the text float up under the shorter table & some span the text at a random point? What is the best code to allow text to always span the page & not float up, but at the same time be responsive to the changes in the tables heights? Have tried divs, breaks & lines but without success in chrome/IE/firefox (using eric meyers css/reset as well to null any variables). Thanks. PS: w3sch is an excellent resource.....
