  1. In Topic: Help with getting website going on local machine?

    Posted 2 Sep 2015

    Ok, well what do you have a problem with? If you have WAMP installed, you have everything you need to run the pages locally. Download the files off of your site, put them in the web root on your local machine, make sure that the files are pointing to your local MySQL database with the right credentials (username and password), then export your database and tables from your host's MySQL and import them into your local MySQL.

    You should then be all set to go. PHP runs on your Apache web server, connects to MySQL and then accesses your imported database. :)
  2. In Topic: active record find_by method

    Posted 2 Sep 2015

    Well does User come from ActiveRecord? As in, is User a type of ActiveRecord instance? An "is a" relationship? Then it is going to have find_by defined as an instance method and that is how you would use it. User is an instance of ActiveRecord and you would call its find_by instance method to then find all records which match the criteria from the ActiveRecord store.

    Why are you trying to call it as a static method? :)
  3. In Topic: Image alignment

    Posted 2 Sep 2015

    Well it is because your laptop image is so much taller than the other images. It is 180px tall and your bicycle man is only 147px and your text image even shorter. This is why when you add a margin to the top of the laptop, it is pushing everything down. So you have a few choices here...

    1) Make the laptop the same height at the bicycle man and make it 147px.
    2) Keep the image the same height it is now but in the graphic itself make the laptop further down on the image (not a really good option)
    3) Make the three images of the banner have a style of "vertical-align: text-top;" and then add your margins as you would like to make them line up
    4) Do choice 3 but instead of adding margins, make each image with a position of "relative" and then add to their "top" value to push them into place

    When trying to align images, making them the same height is usually a pretty good idea so that you don't have some images pushing out margins etc on other images in the line. :)
  4. In Topic: What are you working on today?

    Posted 2 Sep 2015

    Lounging around today since I am on my vacation. Still did a little web dev work for my employer so that I don't have a bunch of crap waiting for me when I get back. It has been raining a bit over the last few days which has largely kept me inside... which is nice given the scorching heat over the summer. Been learning a lot of new stuff and things are going great. Watching movies when I can.

    Greetings! Newish coder here. I came across your php histogram equalization code the other day and figured I'd try and draft something similar up in javascript. I feel like my code is sound, though something has to be wrong as the output of the image is black with some faint greens. I'm wondering if I am missing something from your original code. Consider perusing a jsFiddle?
