  1. If I add that definition then there is no spacing between the bullet and the text in IE. It was the first thing I tried.So I'm guessing I'll have to put in the image of the spade within and <img> next to the text then? It should work but it just doesn't look very neat.
  2. Hello,I'm trying to get this effect with an unordered list:But instead I am getting this:Basically the problem is the border at the bottom does not go under the bullet.Here's the code I'm using. ul.frontpage_list { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; color: #7f7e7e; margin-top:20px; margin-bottom: 30px; list-style-image: url('images/spade.gif'); padding-left: 18px; }ul.frontpage_list li{ line-height: 30px; border-bottom: 1px dotted #555; } Anyone know which would be the best way to achieve such an effect?
  3. Hey Deirdre's Dad I put each label and it's corresponding input in a div and with a few adjustments it is working perfectly. I'm guess putting them in divs was not the most efficient solution but it sure beats floating and positioning.Thanks!EDIT: btw you wouldnt know how to fix that login button would you. The text is displaying a few pixels too low in firefox.
  4. First time I'm having such a problem with firefox. I've been playing with it for a while and I can't get it to show properly. This is how it looks in safari and ::And this is how it looks in firefox: Html: <div id="login"> <form id="loginf" action="#" method="post"> <label>Username:</label> <input type="text" name="username" value=""/> <br /> <label>Password:</label> <input type="password" name="password" value=""/> <br /> <input class="submit" type="submit" value="Login" name="login"/><br /> </form> &
  5. So I designed this little domain checker ^ but I'm not sure how to create a custom drop down menu for the domain extensions like .com, .net .org etc...Anyone know how to do this?EDIT: To be more specific. I just need to know how to choose the colors of the drop down menu, and how to change the drop down arrow to the image I made.
  6. Hey guys, sorry to bother you again :)Anywho I'm almost done with my new site. So this is how it should look give or take: linkAnd this is how it's turning up: linkSo pretty decent. One small problem I have is I'm getting way to much space between the footer and the content. I checked and I couldn't find any margins that would push the footer down. No idea why that's happening.Also the main issue I have is figuring out what approach I should take to get the side content to work properly. I'm talking about the login form, money back guarantee and uptime thing. (No need to read this, just backgr
  7. Hey you where right it was a space between the <a></a> tags.I managed to get the buttons in a decent position using margins. By the way, how do you get rid of underlines with css? text-decoration: none? Cause I tried that, I think :\
  8. Hey guys, template is coming along nicely but I've ran into a little problem in IE7:You see that little line between the image links? I can't seem to get rid of that. I have a class for both of the images.Any ideas how I can do away with it?Thanks.
  9. Hey thanks webflex you where right!Alright now I can get started ^^thanks for the helpEDIT: Yes I suppose Ingolme is right as well.
  10. Hi webflex. I added that code and it didn't seem to have made much of a difference.
  11. Ok guys I tried your suggestions and although I did get the box centered it's not quite 100% height. Any ideas why?
  12. margin: 0 auto; didn't work.Yes you are right I should've linked my work in the first place. Here it is: link
  13. Hi guys I'm working on a web template but I'm having some trouble getting a div to stretch to 100% height and keep it centered.This is the design: LinkI'm referring to the little grey part just outside the white content area.This is the css I'm using for that grey part: #backdrop { text-align: center; position: absolute; background-color: #626262; width: 850px; height: 100%; margin: auto;} The "margin: auto;" doesn't seem to be making a difference though since the box keeps shifting to the left.Any help?
  14. Ah ok I see what you mean. Thanks guys, will keep this in mind :)EDIT: I'm used to coding in Java. I think that syntax is acceptable in Java no? I could be wrong. I'm not an expert in Java either Anyways it just sounded right to me at first, but now I know better.
  15. Alright so I wanted to do a check on a username input. I wanted to make sure that the username inputted is greater then 4 and less then 15 characters.So, let $username be the variable which holds the username. if (strlen($username) < 4 || >15) {$error .= "Username must be 4-15 characters."} But when I do this I get: So what's wrong with the above statement? Looks fine to me, but then again I'm no php expert ^^Thanks.
  16. Right! Thanks guys you made me valid again
  17. Ah ok. Thanks! That fixed most of the errors. Still have two left though. and No idea what's wrong :\
  18. I'm trying to validate my website here but I get 6 errors, which practically say the same thing about different elements I have laying around. Here's one: I'm not very good at understanding the errors here. What did I do wrong?
  19. I just tried this and it had no effect on safari or IE7 but it did make it slightly better in firefox though.
  20. O_O If you must have yellow then put it against some grey not white. Ugh my eyes they burn :'(
  21. Why yellow? It's so uncomfortable to look at >__<
  22. I don't like the header. Attracts waaay too much attention to. I find it hard to read the content of the site with that header within my site. Change it to something less taxing to look at. Same goes for the footer I suppose...It's practically the same image.Also you have way too much drop shadow. Try reducing the distance, because it looks really fake as is and also attracts too much attention.Besides that, great job!
  23. Hey everyone. I'm having some trouble getting a text area box to fit in properly inside my site:Some stuff you may find useful...Html Form: <form action="*.php" method="post" id="addj"> <label>Title: </label> <input type="text" name="title"/> <br /> <label>Author: </label> <input type="text" name="author"/> <br /> <label>Content: <textarea cols="55" rows="15" name="content"></textarea> <br /> <input type="submit" alt="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" /> </form> CSS for textarea alone: form#a
