  1. Sorted it! Changed submit from <input type="submit"> to <input type="button" value="Click me" onclick="msg()"> https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_input_type_button.asp https://www.w3schools.com/css/tryit.asp?filename=trycss_form_button Works anyway but I still hate CSS😝.
  2. I have been trying to change the size, font, colour etc. of the submit button as it is too insignificant in my page. I tried this in W3Schools Tryit Editor but doesn't work: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <style> .submit { border-radius: 10px; width: 60%; font-family: "Times New Roman", Times, serif; } </style> </head> <body> <form action="/action_page.php"> First name: <input type="text" name="fname" value="John"><br> Last name: <input type="text" name="lname" value="Doe"><br>
  3. @Ingolme - I thought all programmers used SciTE. What is the most popular one?
  4. Well, I copied and pasted the text to Notepad and uploaded it and got: string(2) "á" DONE!áTeclado: áRepuesta 1: áRepuesta 2: á Thanks to all for your help
  5. I am using SciTE This is the header for SciTEDoc.html (I cannot find how to see the text editor encoding.): <?xml version="1.0" encoding='utf-8'?> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <meta name="generator" content="HTML Tidy, see www.w3.org" /> <meta name="generator" content="SciTE" /> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html" /> <title> S

  7. SciTE.exe donesuk - I tried this: <!doctype html><html lang = "es"><head><meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/plain"></head><body> but no juice. Now have: <?php header('Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8'); $char = 'á'; var_dump($char); $char2 = htmlspecialchars($char); $char3 = htmlentities($char); if($char3 == '&aacute;') { echo 'DONE!' . $char3; } else { echo 'DID NOT!'; } echo
  8. I'm rapidly getting out of my depth here.
  9. Thanks Ingolme but it still doesn't work. I have tried evading the browser by this: <?php $char = 'á'; $char2 = htmlspecialchars($char); $char3 = htmlentities($char); if($char3 == '&aacute;') { echo 'DONE!' . $char3; } else { echo 'DID NOT!'; } ?> This code shouldn't be affected by the browser at all, but one interesting thing is that the browser doesn't even recognize the character: DID NOT!Teclado: �Repuesta 1:Repuesta 2:
  10. Just an oldie trying to keep his brain active by frying it in php! 

  11. Can you get https://www.w3schools.com/php/phptryit.asp?filename=tryphp_func_string_htmlentities to work on your computer?
  12. Hi everyone. Anyone noticed that htmlentities() aren't working in php? Nor are htmlspecialcharacters. See: https://www.w3schools.com/php/phptryit.asp?filename=tryphp_func_string_htmlentities Any ideas?? I have also written a quick and dirty test routine which I have run on my server: <?php if(isset($_POST['char'])) { $char = $_POST['char']; $char2 = htmlspecialchars($char); $char3 = htmlentities($char); echo 'Teclado: ' . $char . '<br /><br />'; echo 'Repuesta 1: ' . $char2 . '<br /><br />';
  13. 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 gr
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  20. Many thanks for everyone's help.
  21. 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> ?????
  22. 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.
  23. 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
