  1. In Topic: Is my homepage professional? (code, not design)

    Posted 22 Mar 2013

    All in all, it looks very professional to me. It validates fine, and the only error I saw in the display is that the text in Sections 1,2,3 overflows the box at the bottom (FireFox fully updated.)

    As for the HTML5 markup, footer vs id="footer", I personally stick with the div because the company I do work for has a lot of clients who are non-technical and still stick to Windows XP and IE8. For full compliance there are Javascript files created by others that will enable it to be fully HTML5 compliant across every web browser. That is my only issue with using HTML5 at the moment.

    Just remember to have your code in a way that you can edit it easily, tabbed/white-space (I do like white-space) and avoid the silly marquees and flashing text and it will be considered professional to me.

  2. In Topic: Function call from html img src!

    Posted 8 Nov 2012


    I am kind of confused as to what you are trying to accomplish. It appears to me that you wish to use the function you created called cover, to return the url/image source link of the cover. Unfortunately it does not appear that your php function is actually returning anything.

    My first suggestion would be to place

    edit: return $image; is incorrect.

    return $pathToImage;

    as the last line in your cover function. Where the variable pathToImage is the hotlink to the image. This should return the url and then be echoed into the source.

    If you use the same function many times on the page, you can place the include statement at the very top of the file and use it for every cover function call.

    You are also missing a semi-colon at the end of your last echo statement.

    Posted 6 Sep 2012

    You can try removing the 'dbo.' from line 9 of update.php and see what happens. Another issue is again, in your update.php file. You refer to the connection string $con on line 9 of update.php, however it is or should be unable to access that variable. I personally recommend creating a file called: connection.php or config.php that contains the connection to the database, and then using a require statement on all other php files that need to connect.

    Let us know if there are any other issues you encounter.
  5. In Topic: Form not working

    Posted 5 Sep 2012

    Could any of the issues be because you refer to the $username as a session, and then in the code try to pull out the data again as a cookie? I am assuming the cookies are used elsewhere, also you would need to post back in on the page in order to grab any new values set/kept. Maybe use a switch statement in this instance, with a ?failed=true or something similiar.

    Ah. Curse you IE9! I'm still torn over Chrome vs IE9 vs FF4 but pretty much sticking with what I know.

    I think it's a bug with the javascript and IE9

    Both double posted... weird.
    The books are actually very short, more of a teenager size (if that makes sense). 300 pages may be the biggest of them.
