  1. So Im working on the background of my website trying to mesh colors and such... however I have run into troubles and need a small bit of advice if possible.. http://ezeshops.com/ is my website, for reference. How do the pros out there pick colors for the background that match, is there a tool to make the textured background to the color you want, and what colors would you recommend for my site. 2nd ... I have a div for the header a div for the footer, and a body background.... is there a way to move that header background up slightly so its halfway in the menu without screwing up my shadow effects? Im guessing absolute positioning but figured id ask first The biggest issue is the colors though, I stink at art and cant find a color combo that looks good that have a background texture that meshes well. Thanks.

    Styling A List

    Im working on the bottom menu of my website and was going to try to get everything into 1 container for simplicity sake... my question is how would I style the following code to have the primary lists setup l ike the menu for my site ezeshops.com only always expanded so youd have the Main categories going across the bottom of the screen, sub categories below that going horizontal(if I have sub categories), then the lists below those. <ul> <li class="fmenu1 horizontal">Features <li class="fmenu2 horizontal2">Why Us? <li class="fmenu3 vert">Our Plans</li> <li class="fmenu3 vert">The Competitors</li> <li class="fmenu3 vert">Demonstration Store</li> </li> <li class="fmenu2 horizontal2">Popular Features <li class="fmenu3 vert">MarketPress</li> <li class="fmenu3 vert">Gridmarket</li> <li class="fmenu3 vert">Domain Mapping</li> <li class="fmenu3 vert">Google Analytics</li> <li class="fmenu3 vert">Full Feature List</li> </li> </li> I want to make this as simple as possible unfortunately I have little experience with traditional lists... ironically I learned the harder stuff before the easy I guess lol. My method for this would be tons of divs and separate lists for each category, sub category, and then a li for all the options. but Id imagine theres a simplier method I just cant figure it out. Any help would be appreciated, thank you
  3. ok I think I got it... I cant keep t he shadow on the li that is active else it will cover part of the content so if anyone knows a way to do it thats better let me know please.basically on the active tab I added this:padding-bottom:0.3em;margin-bottom:-0.3em;position:relative;z-index:10;but like I said that puts it above the content box which would drop the shadow on it so if you know a work around speak up hehethanks again.
  4. Ok... having done coding more advanced then this I feel kinda stupid not being able to figure this one out...on the tabbed widget area on the home page of ezeshops.com I have the content area as well as the li above it making up the tabs...Now for the stupid question, how do I make the border along all of the top of the content except for where the active tab is?Thanks.
  5. ah never mind I figured it out... turns out it was in my loop function .... dont understand how but ya... SEO wise however will that cause me issues having too long of text inside the anchor?
  6. Im in the process of making a menu system for my wordpress that will post under one of the headings the recent posts from a specific category... I have it all working except the link is doin somthin.... funky I can call up the post and it displays like I want, however when I go to link the excerpt to the actual post link it cuts off my text shorter then I had wanted. I cut out the link and the text showed up exactly like I wanted so its not somthin I screwed up in the wordpress loop somehow.... so it has to be a stray style somewhere or the mechanics of <a> itself.... Is there a reason that the the text inside the anchor tanks of a link would be cut short? if so can I make it longer or will that cause some sorta problem somewhere.?
  7. This is working right in the 1st and 3rd round through however the 2nd round it dosent return the date.... any ideas why? Im very new at this so sorry if its obvious <?php global $post; $args = array( 'numberposts' => 3, 'category' => 1 ); $myposts = get_posts( $args ); foreach( $myposts as $post ) : setup_postdata($post); ?> <div class="newstitle"><?php the_title(); ?></div><div class="newsdate"><?php the_date('d-m-y'); ?></div> <div class="newsinfo"><a href="'. get_permalink($post->ID) . '"><?php echo excerpt(30); ?></a></div> <?php endforeach; ?>

    Proper Css Method

    -moz-border-radius dosent validate in http://validator.w3.org/#validate_by_input I figured if I could get the site validated it would be nice...

    Proper Css Method

    another question for ya... the rounded borders for instance... I think its firefox that uses a border command that works well but is not 'validated' how proper is it to bypass that via javascript or is there a better less... shady way to work around that problem.

    Proper Css Method

    So general layout question here... which method is proper styling? obviously this is a dumbed down example of all the elements and stuff Ill be working with but just curious if it was better to list 1 style multiple times or 1 class or ident or whatever multiple times. I wanna be as professional as I can be in my writing so Im trying to learn proper techniques now #example1 {color: red;height: 43px;border: 1px solid black;} #example2 {color: red;height: 10px;border: 1px solid green;} #example3 {color: red;height: 100px;border: 1px solid purple;} OR#example1, #example2, #example3 {color: red;} #example1 {height: 43px;border: 1px solid black;} #example2 {height: 10px;border: 1px solid green;} #example3 {height: 100px;border: 1px solid purple;}
  11. ya I understand the closing of <p></p> and <h1> </h1>etc etc cause your closing the element you opened earliar I just didnt get the stuff like <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://www.someplace.com/style.css" /> since the / is just out there its not like a </link> /> just felt... alone I guess lol... so if I wanna get validated from say http://validator.w3.org/ I can leave the / in that link statement right.... kinda weird my firefox plugin tellin me thats wrong made me question myself lol
  12. So Im editing some of my site and I load a Firefox plugin that's suppose to run it through validation htmltidy as well as a css validator... one of the warnings it throws up is about the style sheet importer <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory') ?>/style.css" /> the / at the end it dosent like... I always thought that was proper code as Ive always used it... and I see most people use it also but I never really understood the why and if it was needed. Could someone please explain to me why thats there? the / in ' /> '

    Li Border Issues

    Ya the theme uses jscript... I may cut it out honestly as the wp on my PC where I test things before I go live... Ive already cut that jscript out and it works the same. menus are just a lil shorter... still has the hover issue though which is why I figured it was a css based thing
