  1. Weird... had this set to notify of responses, never got anything... just checked now and had 3. Database would be I think what I'm after, so I can just add info and a pic and the site automatically brings it in. Username wise... ya, mine looks bad, but my name is Thomas H. Robinson.... T.H.Robinson... but yes, sounded out, it is a bit porn-ish.
  2. I took a few small courses in HTML/CSS, but honestly, been years since I used either so, I have a basic understanding but very much a beginner for web sites. Looking to re-do the site for where I work, appliance shop, and wondering about how to handle online inventory. Won't be anything major like 100+ items... but would like to be able to have (example) a page for Fridges, Image with basic specs, and when clicked either expands for more details, or, might just link to the manufacturer's spec page at that point. When I first started HTML, we would have done tables and whenever a new
  3. I will never understand how you guys know all this. I Google and pray. I figured the code was excessive when I saw it in Dreamweaver... all I needed was a simple rollover clickable link. What I have works but, seems problematic.
  4. Seems to work fine. Oddly, I decided to try using an external javascript.js file for the site, and bam... thing just died. That console brings up many issues, most I simply don't get and pretty much all are related to the Dreamweaver generated script for the rollover images. Switched it back, save myself some headache. Small site so, not much code to leave in the html. I coulda sworn, the rollovers were much simpler and involved less code when I used it years ago. Guess next issue I need to figure out, the prof wants everything done in DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict, which seems to show more errors than
  5. I removed the onload="MM_preloadImages('images/logob.jpg','images/workb.jpg','images/infob.jpg','images/contactb.jpg')" from the body and totally worked... I only had that there because Dreamweaver added it when I created the rollover images. Would never have guess that that would have affected the image replace. Thanks for the suggestion... I would have sat there playing with the IDs and file locations etc, for hours with (obviously) no results.
  6. Refresh didn't do anything... like I said, I know zilch about java, just doing a small intro class for html/css so, zero clue about inits and functions etc. Just hoped it was something simple that someone looking at my code would see and know where it went wrong, like data-picname is wrong, or missed punctuation somewhere, etc.
  7. Console tab, when clicked, shows a window with a single blue > and nothing else. Clicked around and such but nothing changes and no messages appear in the console. Maybe the code is fine? I'm just missing something to go with it?
  8. Sadly I know zilch about java... just nearing the end of a small HTML/CSS correspondence class that kinda mentions java and had a few simple samples to cut/paste into the code. Deirdre's Dad was kind enough to send me some basic code to use for my situation but, doesn't want to work for me in EI/Chrome where I'm testing my site from. I used CTRL+SHFT+I in Chrome, but, not showing me errors that I can see, just, the code. Same as I see in Dreamweaver CS5. Not sure if the onclick isn't working, or I linked the images wrong. When it comes to java, all I know is quite literally, onclick means so
  9. Finally re-working my website, looks the same but WAY WAY fewer DIVs than before. Started work on the page that includes this script and not co-operating. I click and no images seem to change. Did I change something I shouldn't have? My artwork is in an images folder so, added the images/, and the artwork shows up on my page, just no reaction to clicking. <!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 for Lin
  10. That worked! So... the "stuff" going into the area I want needs to be absolute, and the space it's going into needs to be relative? This is the stuff that eats up most of my time trying to figure out, but I guess that's learning. Thanks a bunch, I'd have spent easily another hour on it and likely never solved it. Out of curiosity, what caused it to jump across the screen when clicked? I can understand it not appearing correctly or simply not working, but the giant jump across the screen baffles me.
  11. Well, class is online, and has sample pages... but the sample pages we get are very basic. No headers, footers, no div container with stuff inside etc... just plain text starting at the top-left corner on a white page page with a sample script. Once you grab the scrip and start putting it into a designed page... that's when stuff seems to be breaking for me. I have 2 css files, a main css, and a css just for the chips. I have a div setup for the centre of my screen, with the fridge set as a background image. Hopefully the CCS's aren't too big to post.... thread is already long from the last co
  12. Hmm... the samples we have have the script tags, but, up in the header. This what I have... trying to make a page look like an old fridge, doing that 'Fridge Poetry' that was popular like 10+ yrs ago... just to show an example of the drag/drop with small boxes of words. Samples given aren't in a container div like mine so... maybe I have them in the wrong spot as a result? W3C Markup Validation passes on this and the css files. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">&
  13. Hey there, I'm a newbie, still learning HTML5/CSS3 and working on a small project with some java script for an online course. Not having much luck when it comes to dropping it into a div container... original scripts are in a main container, however, pages I'm doing have a main container centred on screen, with containers inside (header, footer, main, etc) since I've learned that tables are now no longer used for the most part. I found that if I changed the css position from 'absolute' like in the examples we get to 'relative' the stuff at least shows up inside the div I want it to instead of
  14. Awesome.... will give it a try ASAP. Will be a great help if it works, I kinda dreaded having a site loading 30 different pages to look at 10 examples. Thanks.
  15. I'm not very good with programming, still learning HTML5/CSS3, so I apologize if this is a dumb request. I'm doing a web page (online portfolio) and I have the layout done and looking near how I want, however, on pages where I am showing samples of my work, I have imageA1 large and in the centre, and to the right, 3 thumbs (imageA1, imageA2, imageA3) so when you click a thumb the central image loads to that jpg. I want to avoid using flash. As it is now, if I click imageA1, it loads the page ../imageA1.html, if I click the thumbnail for image1B, it loads .../image1B.html etc... I'm hoping some
