I've seen that happen in Wordpress too, where it warps your code to the point of not working. I don't think there's much you can do except adopt the "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" philosophy and try to find a plugin designed for the blogging software to display your vids.

It sounds like you're wanting to change this template from a fixed width to a fluid (or percentage-based) layout? If so, you might be better off just finding a fluid layout instead. For example, if this one stretched to fit the browser, what would happen to the buttons at the top, or the header imag...

I think Bogey's answer should work. I'm assuming your confirmation page is generated somewhere in that wfp_core.php file, so you would just have to find that part of the file and add in the variables as Bogey described above.

I've run into this same thing before. I'm pretty sure it's a margin/padding cross-browser interpretation thing, but the easiest way to fix it is to just add a line break at the top of your content area:

CSS Code: [ Select ]
div, ul, li, h1, h2, h3, p {
  1. div, ul, li, h1, h2, h3, p {
  2. margin:0px;
  3. padding:0px;
  4. }


Well.. if you like doing things the easy way...

You know what I think might be messing you up? All the default padding and margin settings that different browsers have. Try putting this in your CSS and see if it helps at all: [code] div{margin:0px;padding:0px;} ul{margin:0px;padding:0px;} li{margin:0px;padding:0px;} h1{margin:0px;padding:0px;} h2...

Just keep using the same software you're using now, but put a throttle on it so that it only sends out emails every 8 seconds or so- that should be low enough bandwidth to not crash your server.

Hmm.. I tested it and it worked for me:
I did have to set heights for alta_izq and alta_der because they automatically collapse to the content...

Do you have a link where you're trying to do this?

I'm seriously considering flying out to Japan to teach English. Apparently you don't need to know Japanese to do it and they are crying out for people to teach English in japan. If a few other plans don't work out for me over the next few years i might just do it. That'd be a sweet gig! The schools...

I don't mind getting old so much.. it's the idea of being old and lonely like your neighbor that scares me.

I love the Japanese culture, too. I spent four weeks there when I was a kid, living with different families. I can't wait to go back to visit.

Hey, I think the U.S. is a great country. What makes you think we couldn't pull something like this off without six month waiting lists and toenail related deaths?

What we need is for these big health companies to stop giving away pens and stationary and fancy logo junk to doctors and nurses and clinics as a promotional thing. My mommy is a medical transcriptionist, and she hasn't had to buy any pens or paper for the last several years because she gets free s...

Hillary's and Obama's health care plans are the same. they both suck. We dont' need to "Socialize" out countries medicine. Know any old people who can't get health insurance and can't afford their huge medical bills? I do, and I sure don't want to grow old in a country that treats its eld...

I think you guys saw more of Gordon Brown when he was in America last week than we have since he became our Prime Minister last year. Man, that guy has the deepest voice I've ever heard.. and he sure does love to listen to it. Regarding the primaries, I'm still rooting for Obama. I'd love to get in...

Ohhhh.. ZZ Top! I was thinking you guys were disguised as Al Queda or something.

ZZ Top is way funnier :lol:

I like that design a lot, particularly the way you blurred the content box a little, so it really feels like a plate of glass in front of the background.

I used Notepad for a long time, too, but then I downloaded Notepad++ to try it out and now I'm hooked.

I like the color coding and the tabs so you can have a lot of files open in the same window.

I just use Google's custom search feature, too, like the one I used on this site.

I've actually seen it more often the other way around for sites with 3 column layouts - sides are fixed and the center column is elastic. Here's a tutorial for that. If you really wanted content in the two outer columns and for them to be elastic, you can just switch the code around.

Yeah, Notepad++ with FireFTP is my preference over both Dreamweaver and Frontpage.

A simple fix would be to add the following to the CSS for your alta_1 div:

That's Magneto, not Magento.. I would be interested to know if anyone has had experience with this guy, too, though...

I hadn't seen Magento yet, but it looks way more modern than OsCommerce and Zen Cart.. I might have to try it out... I just downloaded one of the free templates I found at this site and it looks like it's just like any other CMS template setup.. basically just a lot of images and CSS files to play a...

It depends on what blogging software you're using, but it sounds like you didn't upload the template folder to the right directory. For example, in WordPress, you need to upload it to: wp-content/themes

what are you talking about gif is beautiful! especially for vector based artwork and text. plus it saves down to next to nothing file size wise! :D I think the only time GIFs should still be used is if you're restricted by file size. Small PNGs like the ones you use for text-based images don't take...

Post Posted: April 21st, 2008, 2:20 pm

Lol I don't like GIFs either for some reason.. maybe it's because I've seen to many of them done with jagged edges or crazy animations.

I do use a lot of JPGs too because you can get smaller file sizes out of them than you can with PNGs.

Post Posted: April 21st, 2008, 2:07 pm

What's wrong with JPGs or GIFs? Although I like PNGs as well... I like the transparency support in it... MSIE doesn't agree with me though :x It's only IE6 that doesn't handle PNG transparency and there's a pretty easy hack for that. For me it's worth it to have true transparency and better resolut...
