  2. Hi All,I am having a problem displaying this site http://www.telltales.ie in google chrome. It works fine in all other browsers.Initially when I logged into the site the top half of the site was covered in a black box and you couldn't navigate. I think the issue is with two plugins, the Embed Facebook plugin and random image gallary with lightbox. I have now changed the color of the overlay to none in both of the css files for the plugins so that it does not display in black. The only issue seems to be now that the overlay is still their and you can't navigate. It is only over the top portion

    Centering Webpage

    Hi Mads,Thanks for the quick response. I tried that and I still seem to have the same problem. I am wondering if I have put code elsewhere that is overwriting this. Sooz

    Centering Webpage

    Hi All,I thought I had this cracked but I am obviously making a mistake somewhere. I wish to center a website on the screen no matter the size of the screen using autowide margins. The site in question is hereWhat am I doing wrong?Any help very much appreciated.ThanksSooz
  7. I have tried a couple of things, one being changing the css in notepad and replacing the existing file through direct access but this hasn't made any difference as when I go in through joomla it still says unwritable. I get the message "The parameter file /templates/gk_musictop/params.ini is unwritable!" when I go into the template manager and try and edit i get "Operation Failed!: failed to open "file /usr/local/pem/vhosts/00000/webspace/siteapps/140/htdocs/templates/gk_musictop/css/template_css.css for writing."Im sure I am going about this in completely the wrong way. I dont see “template_c
  8. I have tried this but the css for this section of the site is unwritable. Its a template through joomla. If anyone has any ideas they would be much appreciated.Thanks

  10. Even if you layout your site in photoshop you still need to understand the basics of HTML and CSS to build your site in some sort of web development application. I think you should try going through the W3Schools tutorials again or employ someone to do this site for you.
  11. Content Management System. You need this to create / manage the content of your site.
  12. I have been asked to fix a few things on a friends website that has been set up in Joomla. I am not familiar with Joomla but have agreed to take a look. One of the issues is in Internet Explorer 7.0 or lower, on the home page the text in the featured box (containing residential, sites and rental etc) over flows the box it is supposed to be sitting in. This views fine in all other browsers as far as I can see. Is there any way to fix this?There are obviously a few other issues but I am hoping I can fix them.The site in question is;www.vincentwalshauctioneers.ieI would be grateful if anyone has
  13. SkemcinThanks again for all the info. It isn't my first site but so far I have not needed to provide CMS for the clients as I am updating their info for them. Every site I have done so far has taught me something new and has seemed like I have had a mountain to climb so I am sure this one will be no different. A bit of a challenge is a good thing and it is what keeps me sane.Im sure I will be posting loads of questions as I go alone. Thanks for your help
  14. Hi SkemcinThanks for your reply. Can't believe you were in Galway recently. It is a cool city. Im a blow-in myself but live the place.The idea is that when the site is finished the community centre staff will be updating the information themselves. They are apparently computer savvy but there is a lot of basic stuff they don't seem to know.. I have never tried to use XML yet but I will have a look at the tutorials. I only started HTML in January so I am on a steep learning curve. The hosting company that they have gone with offers a free database application MySQL. Again I have not used this b
  15. Hi All,I am about to start doing a website for a local community center which is going to have a large amount of info and a high turnover of news. What would be the best method of handling all of the information? Databases? (I only started learning web design this year and I am doing it for free). I have put a link to a similar site to give an idea of what I hope to achieve. http://www.familyresource.ie/The w3schools tutorials are great so if anyone could point me in the right direction I would be most grateful.Thanks in advance

    Unordered List

    I have started using CSS but only just. I am trying to teach myself all of this so it is certainly taking me time. I would appreciate any help you can give. I have to sign off now so thanks for all your help.

    Unordered List

    Thanks so much. That has sorted it now. I had the first spacelist missing. All fixed now.

    Unordered List

    I have changed to the above and thanks for the help. This still doesn't seem to have affected the spacing in the list however. The margin I has shown simply increases the space to the top of the div based on the css#spacelist li {margin: 15px 0;} I think he css is still the problem.

    Unordered List

    #spacelist_li { margin: 300px 0; list-style-position: inside; list-style-type: disc;} Im still trying to learn this so sorry for the silly questions.

    Unordered List

    I tried this but I am obviously doing something wrong as the distance has not changed.<div class="spacelist_li" id="projectTitles"> <li><a href="young.html" class="li"><span class="li">Young Library</span></a></li> <li><span class="spacelist_li"><a href="stapleton.html" class="spacelist_li">Stapleton House</a></span></li> <li><span class="spacelist_li"><a href="towncentre.html" class="spacelist_li">Town Centre Living</a></span></li> Can you tell from this what I am doing wr

    Unordered List

    I have created a unordered list with each item being a link, but have been unable to increase the space between each item on the list (vertically). At the moment it looks like the spacing below. I want to basically create a space of about 30px between each item. Item 1 Item 2 Item 3 How do I create the space? The list is enclosed in a div.Im sure this is very simple but I would appreciate any input.Thanks
  23. Thanks for that tip. Will the float property allow the background image to reduce as the screen size does?
