    C++ And Ruby

    Does anyone do any programming with C++ or design applications with Ruby? I downloaded Rails and had it up and running and I was looking through the Chilkat library and some other bits and pieces of libraries on the open source sites. Mostly spending a lot of time with the Wiki learning the basics of what I can do. Curious to see who's a programmer and to know if you've designed any web or desktop aps. Can we check them out? Thanks! Oh yeah, I like the idea of being able to create a console for my web sites that allows me to do updates behind the scenes and globally change the sites content, or being able to create my own forums like Vanilla from the ground up, or to be able to code a nifty package like PHPList, or at least to be able to start contributing as a developer to all of these places.

    Tch Web Site

    The irony is, I like the places I frequent to stay static forever, and the places I create to change every second of every day.

    Tch Web Site

    What I like Hmmm... I'm not the person to ask. I like it. What I like most is that I know where everything is at and I can find all the info I need fast. More of a reflex and less of a thought. Commentary The less change the better. Knowing where everything is is what's helping me along the road of going from a couple of basic accounts to a basic reseller package. Every time I come to the forums, which is more often than I have anything to say, I drop in and check out the sales packages and read up on the dedicated server info, which brings me into the forum to read more and ask less questions while I figure things out for myself as much as possible. Being familiar with where everything is at is the greatest strength of the site for me. Right now I'm booking the Latin Billboard Awards in Miami, but every second I have time to breathe I'm learning more about programming. Today my fashion scene skills are a lot better than my design and programming skills, but with TCH and great open-source resources I'm growing. I could have paid to have a site designed for me a long time ago, but I'm the stubborn type who likes to know how everything works. That's where the joy is in it for me.

    Robots, Php And The Txt File

    An hour later, that makes so much sense... thinking how a spider works, crawling through the directory. As a new programmer and designer with so much on my mind getting my pages up as fast as possible it's easy to not see the forest for the trees.

    Robots, Php And The Txt File

    Thanks! That saved me a world of wonder and missteps...

    Robots, Php And The Txt File

    I have a site with 6 php includes. header,footer,right menu, left menu, sales menu, content. Sometimes more for a special menu. Do I need a robots.txt in every .php include for it to be effective? I don't necessarily want the robot crawling all of my headers if my bandwidth is suffering from anything unecessary. I'm doing a php include of a robots.txt file so that way I can universally update it across the platform. Yeah, maybe nobody should have clued me in on the basics of php. Even though I haven't started programming as a programmer would, the doors have been opened and I'm using this knowledge everyday. Is 6 php includes for a robots.txt file in every include overkill, or smart use? I understand it's open to interpretation and I highly value your opinions. If anyone else is doing something similar, it would be fun to hear what you're up to;definitely participate.

    Designing Web Sites For Pda's

    I'm a little late to the party, but here's my contribution. Icons for mobile devices. I also recommend the W3C Schools and their articles about programming for mobile devices.

    Css Meets Php

    I have a web page with a php include for the header, another for the footer, the right menu, left menu and a sales banner. How many CSS links do I need really? Right now the page is all white, but I want the flexibility to change it in the future. Maybe I have a fancy logo made in March and want an orange background. So the question is, do I need a CSS link in all of the php include files that are being called including my header, footer, menus, etc. Wouldn't those other php files show as a white background when I change the header's CSS? Is there a best way to make it universal and life easier (css control); something that you are using? My theory is to create css.php and have an include inside an include. My css.php file will control all of the other .php files style sheets. Do I have a winner? Or do you see a pitfall with load time or something else I'm missing? I'm going ahead right now, but jump in if you see a better way.

    Saying Thank You With Gifts

    Is it possible for us to send gifts to the TCH offices in December or really anytime of the year for either the office in general or specific people from tech support? The least any business owner could do who has been helped time and again is send a card to the offices when you're thinking back on things to be thankful for during the past year. Either way, I'm showing my gratitude and appreciation right now for everyone here and I sincerely do thank you! Of course things like food wouldn't go over well, but really anything sensible and tangible. Is it okay to do or discouraged? Here's what I wrote in another topic. Thanks again! Are we allowed to send gifts to the TCH offices on anyones behalf? I'll open a new topic on it. Between W3 Schools and TCH I'm learning a lot and using a lot of what I learn. I'm going to write something in the open topics about it to see if it's allowed and if anyone has or does do it. Especially all of the business owners at Christmas. Even if products don't fit, you guys are on the top of my list of thank you's and people to be thankful for in my year.

    Why Tch Rocks

    Tech support, a friendly and positive atmosphere and a great forum to learn how to grow your technical skills. Let's face it, not having a web host is like not having a phone number. Everyone needs a web address in the world of today. If not, you are missing out on a lot of what life has to offer. If you're a successful and happy person, you might have 5 or 10 domain names. I'm intellectual at heart, but TCH has helped to make me a man of action! Thanks for making my life better.

    Php Changed My Life

    When did the light come on for you? The day you said, I can't believe I've been posting html pages, everything has to be php. Do you use php on all of your sites, or html? I learned how to use the php include function this week, and now I need to go change all of my web pages from html to php, and I don't know how I'd get by without this stuff. Are most of your pages php now; something you'd like to learn or is it still a mystery. Has php changed your life?

    Periods In Sub-domain Names

    I created sub-domains and inserted periods in them between words in the sub-domain name. Cpanel allowed me to create them fine. The web address appears when entered into a browser and the site displays perfectly. Cpanel returns my sub-domain as being created just fine upon creation. Everything is great! Well... is it really? I noticed a display message that had said to not create a sub-domain with a period. Is there an unseen problem with creating a domain like this? Will it impact my search results in Google? I've seen other operations with periods seperating sub-domains and I am wondering if I'm facing an unanticipated situation here or if I should go ahead since it's working great. Thank you for listening.

    Crazy Server Sale!

    I see the Head Gurus phone number in my future. I've been coding all night with my new skills learned here. That sounds like it's a fantastic deal. Still working my way up from starterhosting and the Front Page trenches, but thanks to everyone here my skill set is growing by the day.
