Thanks for taking the time to clear that up JB. I think I've got my fill of new information for the day, but I'm sure there'll be more questions to come later down the road.

Post Posted: January 26th, 2011, 10:24 pm

okay, so this is what I'm gathering, not knowing anything about regular expressions: "\s" is the regular expression for space "*" means "any amount of" That about right? Also; the "/" is used for escaping, why are you putting it in different positions for each...

Post Posted: January 26th, 2011, 10:04 pm

Just about all of that I understand...except for one piece:

JAVASCRIPT Code: [ Select ]
  1. .split(/\s*,\s*/)

I assume the split is for dimmensioning an array using the commas as the divider for each term. Whether that's correct or not...what is all the "/\s*,\s*/" mumbo jumbo?

Post Posted: January 26th, 2011, 7:53 pm

I think I understand your point. Would you mind sharing a better solution for the above code for future reference?

Post Posted: January 26th, 2011, 4:30 pm

wow, that worked. Didn't expect it to be that easy...

Thanks JB

I could use javascript, but it feels like it would take a lot more code for what I need to do. It's for a wordpress blog. I'm displaying tweets from a twitter feed in my footer, which is outside the loop (meaning I can't simply get the author of a post). basically, if I'm on anything other than a si...

okay, so I'm trying to figure out how to get an attribute by id within my php document. I've looked high and low for the entire day; everything refers to doing so through loading an xml document. I don't want to do this. I have a dynamically generated span tag within my site. I need to find that spa...

Post Posted: January 25th, 2011, 11:22 pm

Honestly I'm just now taking my javscript course so I'm sure I'll have more questions in the coming weeks, and my js will look horrid. Could you explain why chaining the appendChild method is a bad thing, and what you mean by changing the scope?

Post Posted: January 24th, 2011, 11:39 pm

No, it terminates with a closing bracket; the problem was in line 8 where I was using the wrong syntax for the "createElement" method.

Post Posted: January 21st, 2011, 4:19 pm

Nevermind, got it. [code=javascript] function getNames() { // set up the array var names=new Array(3); i=0 //loop will stop at 4 names while(i < 4) { var name = prompt("Please enter a name:",""); names[i] = name; var list = document.createElement('li'); documen...

Post Posted: January 21st, 2011, 4:03 pm

Anyone know why this isn't outputting anything? Prompt shows up once, which makes me think it's the while loop. [code="javascript"] function getNames() { var names=new Array(4); var i = 0 var name = prompt("Please enter a name:",""); while(names[4] = '') { names[i] = na...

You'll basically need to rewrite a lot of your code for your site to work. Your website essentially has 4 parts all wrapped within a "wrapper" div: ⋅ Header ⋅ Sidebar ⋅ Content ⋅ Footer So consider the following html to divide your content: [code=htm...

I tend to use dreamweaver for 3 reasons: 1. It automatically inserts the DTD, and can be easily changed (not something I'll ever remember off the top of my head) 2. Commands > Apply Source Formatting (my coding habits are messy at best) 3. All linked css and javascript files are opened with my ht...

Html, css, javascript,'s all the same no matter what program you write it in. CS5 is fine, and will work with all browsers, but you have to know how to write good code that is cross-browser compatible. If you're a wysiwyg editor, than I suggest you take the time to learn dreamweaver. If you...

Post Posted: December 11th, 2010, 2:33 am

For starters, I don't see any id attribute declaring your "#wrapper". You have a lot of "<br>" tags and "&nbsp;" spaces. Replace these with some css margin or padding properties. Also, I highly suggest reading this tutorial written by one of our members on mul...

Post Posted: October 21st, 2010, 11:44 am

Well, that could happen, for the video content and maybe some common galleries, but for games and other graphic effects, i doubt it. I'm willing to bet that someone will create some sort of extensive wysiwyg application that will allow you to do some pretty advanced and very flash-like canvas appli...

Post Posted: October 14th, 2010, 12:32 pm

how about a competition on pushing the limits of css3 on safari/chrome and FF? One page, using only html and CSS3. No javscript, php, or other scripting languages. No images. See how creative one can get with CSS3?

Sound like a good idea?

I'm not sure of what the purpose is to having a link in your navigation bar for "Compact Design" and "Full sized design". Seems as though all they do is toggle the header. What's the purpose? Also, the header images have no consistent layout and some are hard to read because of t...

Post Posted: October 12th, 2010, 9:12 am

you don't need flash for this site. It wouldn't fit. The homepage needs more of an introduction, but as for dynamic? What exactly do you mean by "dynamic"?

Post Posted: October 12th, 2010, 9:02 am

You need a better logo. The text below the logo is hard to read. The color scheme doesn't fit the content. There's not enough contrast, try variations in the different sections(sidebar, header, main content) to help separate the visual hierarchy. There is far too much information on the home page. I...

Sounds like marketing and SEO - which is out of my realm of expertise, unfortunately. Facebook, in its adolescents, was 100% word of mouth.

The area above the images which state: "Other social networks connect you to your current friends with varied interests." and "Ballroom Book introduces you to new friends with the same interest." They're showing one below the other on my computer in Chrome 6.0, FF 3.5, IE8, and I...

This text under "Sign Up, It's free" : "Sign up now and start sharing videos and photos with thousands of members." Makes it sound a bit like a youtube-flikr hybrid. Maybe change it to something a bit more broad such as: "Sign up now and start sharing videos, photos, and ide...

I'm talking about the link you posted to your benchmark. KIt has both Chrome 6 and Chrome 7 on it.

Post Posted: October 7th, 2010, 12:49 pm

Honestly I don't think you need a template menu to create this. You could create it yourself. The code is fairly straight forward. You basically make an unordered list. Inside the list items, you embed another unordered list. Inside the embedded lists' items, you embed a table with links in each cel...

Post Posted: October 7th, 2010, 12:37 pm

I think it's interesting to see Chrome 6 do better than Chrome 7. I wonder what they changed in the code that caused such a difference. You would think they would be targeting efficiency and speed since that's their biggest selling point.

lol, agreed. Especially the sorting test, crazy fast.

Looking forward to seeing the results.

hahaha, that's hillarious - using a browser benchmark test made by microsoft to see if microsofts rendering is better. Come on guys, think about what you're doing.

Maybe use a browser benchmarking test that isn't proprietary to any particular browser? Just saying.

The site color scheme is good, but the layout gives me a feeling that I should be finding a sales pitch. A.K.A. the site looks a bit like a template. Aside from the logo, what's giving this website personality? What's making it unique? Is there an overall theme(not just color scheme)? I think if you...

Hmmm, not sure what you're talking about. They seem to be identical between browsers on my computer. Would you mind posting a screenshot? I may be looking in the wrong area.

Post Posted: October 6th, 2010, 11:50 am

I like the color scheme of the site, very appealing and appropriate to the content. Continuity issue: When looking at the "Search People" and "Browse Gallery" page, the list of people have an alternating beige-ish color as a background. This is pleasing to the eye and helps reada...

Where is the bug happening? In MSIE6? It looks fine in IE7 and IE8 so I'll assume you're having the issue with IE6. This is because IE6 only understands the ":hover" pseudo-class when it is applied to an "<a>" tag. In your stylesheet you are applying it to an "<li&g...

My first suggestion is to do some research on grid layout, it will help you improve the site layout immensely. I agree with both points that camperj made. An intro page that simply explains what your site is for is imperative. I should be able to go to your site and instantly know what it's for. Thi...

Okay, since no one seems up to the challenge, here's the answer. The reason it was so confusing for me is because it seems like a lot of functions within functions. Here it is: [javascript] $.ajax({ url: "js/cats.xml", type: 'GET', dataType: 'xml', timeout: 1000, er...

My advice is to buy a hosting plan to host your own blog. Use wordpress, joomla, or a similar blogging cms to publish your articles. If you were making $46 a month than your cost of hosting is more than covered.

The reason I wanted it to be ajax is because I will only want to load certain parts of the xml file on certain events. I have a navigation bar with each major category as a link. So when a person clicks on "Weddings" in the navigation bar, the sidebar div is emptied of it's contents and th...

Is it possible to disable or remove a function after it's been executed?

I have a function that executes on mouseover of a div. After it's been executed; I want an entirely different function to execute on mouseover. How do I disable the initial function so it doesn't interfere with my next function?

check to ensure you're using links relative to the document rather then the site root. You may be linking your pictures to "C:\website\images\pic.jpg" rather than "\images\pic.jpg" If this is the case, when the site is uploaded it won't function properly. You'll want to set up yo...
