Well to answer your question, from a strictly visual standpoint, yes its a fad.

Over time the visual style may change a ...

@jozemaner I'd suggest using a tool made for video like After Effects. Then you just decide how long a flare should exist and your done. This kind of goes for the whole topic. If you want an effect in animation/video Photoshop is a somewhat clumsy way to do it. Everything from colorizing to PS filte...

Border radius alone won't work with images. You need to convert the image to a background element and then round the corners on that.

What you want to do shouldn't be too difficult using CSS3. However a small caveat before getting started is that this will only work in the more recent versions of mozilla/webkit browsers since it uses the vendor specific css3 selectors. If you need it to work in more browsers, you'll want to use a ...

I could be wrong but I don't think you can control the sound object with Actionscript 2. You will likely have to migrate everything to Actionscript 3 and target Flash player 10. Then at that point I believe you can mess with the sound object itself.

It would actually help if you post your code. But the general idea is to swap depths so in your rollover you would use something like:

Its been a while but I'm pretty sure the problem is that in AS1 (which your using) movieclips couldn't be used as buttons. This has since changed but you have to go about it a little differently. give your movieclips an instance name and then create a frame on your timeline to contain actionscript. ...

Well the easiest way to play a sound on a website is with Flash but there are several javascript solutions that take care of all the Flashness for you.

Personally I've used soundmanager2 on a few projects. It's totally free and pretty easy to implement. Might be worth a look.

getURL is intended to load pages OUTSIDE of flash. The best solution is to bring the other swf into your current swf via loadMovieClip() or to create a separate html page containing the new swf and link to the page.

If you need to edit Flash fla files you will need a copy of Adobe Flash. There's really only one piece of software to choose from. Macromedia Flash was purchased by adobe saveral years ago. Flash CS4 is really Flash 10. You can always download the fully functional trial from

Basically what thats saying is you need to create static html pages that contain your entire site content and then use a deep linking system to call the correct flash section based on the page that gets loaded into the browser. I'd look into the SWFAddress library to help with the deep linking. Also...

why not use an alt tag on the image and link the image? Another option is to set the png as the background of the link and then style the link text over the top of that. Otherwise DM is correct. Layering something on top of a clickable object will not allow the click to pass through to the lower lay...

try giving the <br/> a display block, a height and a width. That would force the hasLayout in IE.

glad you got it figured out.

Post Posted: October 6th, 2009, 6:13 pm

the clear div needs to be inside the body div as the last element. By the way how are you trying to get the height?

It could also be the media. I've had lots of problems with different media brands and batches. I'd try a different brand of media and see if that fixes it.

Post Posted: October 6th, 2009, 1:53 pm

that works fine unless you also use a height... the IE box model is messed up both height and width but otherwise you shouldn't have too many problems with it. The biggest issue will occur in areas where you really need BOTH margin and padding. For example a textarea that needs to have inner padding...

Post Posted: October 6th, 2009, 1:50 pm

the float on #leftTalls removes it from the page flow and therefore from height calculations.

put a div at the bottom of your body with a style of clear:both; that should force the container to grow to the correct height.

Post Posted: October 5th, 2009, 3:33 pm

did you try just height? I believe scroll height is giving you the difference between the actual height and the window height (which may not even exist on the document object). Also out of curiosity is there any reason that it has to validate strict? Why not change to transitional and see if it vali...

ok so you will need to pull your footer out of that wrapper and place it below the rest of your content. That will allow your footer to fill the width of the page. Then place your image as the background of that div and center it with css. Any content should go inside another div so (footer -> di...

Post Posted: October 1st, 2009, 8:30 am

is #shellcontentbottom wrapped in another div that centers the site? If so you might need to pull it outside of that wrapper. Then remove the margin and width from your css and you should get the effect you want.

Post Posted: October 1st, 2009, 8:06 am

Oh I see what the problem is. Essentially your footer is the widest part of the page therefore causing the scroll when the screen gets smaller than your footer. In that case you will have to give the footer a background that is centered via css. Or create a smaller footer.

Post Posted: October 1st, 2009, 6:24 am

Give your footer div a fixed width and then give it a margin of 0 auto

This will force the div to center. So

Code: [ Select ]
#footer{width:800px; margin: 0 auto;}

Hey thanks all. Thats a favorite for me as well. I didn't really want to cut off the butt but it just so happens that's where the glass window ends so one of those deals where cropping makes or breaks the shot.

Post Posted: September 29th, 2009, 10:48 pm

I'm not sure exactly what your trying to do, but it looks pretty standard to me. I don't think text shadow will work in IE but it shouldn't break anything. You may run into an issue where your width is actually 217px due to the border being added. That in turn could cause some funny wrap/floats.

That one actually prefers the big red ball. He'll play catch with the crowd by forcing the ball underwater so it pops back up out of his enclosure to the crowd. Its pretty fun to watch.
