  1. @thescientist I like the link you quoted and I am trying it out. CLI takes me back a long way DOS3, earlier there was nothing else. I am perhaps too long in the tooth to use CLI nowadays. @justsomeguy I accept the constraint, I take what is provided free and if it becomes indispensable might pay for upgrades but testing it out without a trial period NO WAY.
  2. Thanks for the info. Reading the Blog it suggests the first of the ones I listed on my previous post. But I have a problem with what was suggested the execution of the download and install is greek to me. It talks about GIT whatever that is and then launches into execution by phpcs --standard=PHP3Compatibility <path-to-your-PHP-source-directory> Which is what turned me off - so I am still looking.
  3. Thanks for reminding me of the insufficient help that is provided. What I was looking for was an application that would read through the php scripts and highlight the deprecated features. I have found a few references to such applications they all point to pay software and one that looked promising turned out to be full of what I consider gobble de gook, quoting how to install in Linux or using Chrome. Not for me. What I think I need is a php script which reads all the scripts and highlights the deprecated terms. Not a reference to a manual page which lists them for a specific version. see .../migration53.deprecated.php and .../migration54.deprecated.php and .../migration55.deprecated.php which quite correctly identify the terms but offer no consolidated help.
  4. I have had a problem moving a complex website from one host to another because the new host does not support PHP4 terms such as 'split'. I have overcome the problems that caused but want to be sure I am not going to encounter other now deprecated terms. Is there a method of checking a series of PHP scripts against the latest or selectable PHP version for deprecated terms to future proof my scripts? Obviously I could run all the scripts against PHP5 but this is wasteful of time identifying what terms cause a failure.

    warn status?

    What is the meaning of the words 'warn status' placed under my profile picture and membership data on posts that I make?
  6. I was hoping to be able to do this using IE9 and possibly HTML 5 but the article I have read seemed to suggest that only OEM browsers supported the 'autofocus' option. So I wondered how people had been doing this before HTML 5.I notice a lot of websites with forms do not even try to place the focus so obviously it is not something web designers care about. Not what I have been used to with other non web based applications.Thanks for taking the trouble to reply.
  7. Exactly as it says in the title.How do you set the focus to be a specific field in a form using pre HTML 5 and IE?
  8. Way to go.Thank you for the tips, they solve my problem and lets me get on with the next step in the page setup.
  9. I am still looking for an answer to this question.
  10. I understand. I was not aware that it was not developed by W3Schools. Hopefuly this thread will enable newbies to understand what the link does and not have to ask in future.
  11. No, and it doesn't affect the main question - the explanation of the required offset.
  12. <!DOCTYPE html><html><body><div> <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" version="1.1"> <rect x="0" y="0" width="100" height="100" style="fill:#FF0000;stroke-width:0;"/>> </svg> <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" version="1.1"> <rect x="100" y="-154" width="100" height="100" style="fill:#00FF00;stroke-width:0;"/>> </svg> <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" version="1.1"> <rect x="200" y="-308" width="100" height="100" style="fill:#0000FF;stroke-width:0;"/>> </svg></div></body></html> Does that work?
  13. I would if I could.Exactly how do you use a code tag?
  14. I would suggest that the text be altered to read "Mark forums read" in keeping with the "Mark this forum read" at the top of the forum listing.I had thought this referred to some community of members.
  15. I am a very newbie at this subject and am puzzled by the results that arise from the attached small test page.When the page is opened the 3 rectangles, Red Green and Blue appear as desired in a horizontal line.However if you examine the source you will see that I have adjusted the position of the top left corner of the rectangles to achieve this.My question is why does it apparently need a greater adjustment upwards by 4 pixels more than I would expect to be needed. I think I can understand the spacing of 50 pixels due to normal spacing, but why the 4 extra?SVG Page 2.html
