  1. Looks like it's been fixed! You guys are awesome!
  2. sorry if this is the wrong section... can't figure out where/who to tell to fix things on the site... http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/help/coppermine.html the tutorial has a few errors, though the one in the Tutorials section looks better. In Step 3, the 'includes' folder should be on a seperate line. also, the itemized list numbering is a bit wonky - 1 2 3 4, 2 3 4 5 6 and why is Step 3 #5 talking about a blog?
  3. ok, here's mine... like most others have said, pardon the mess! (my first picture post - let's hope this works! - it did, woohoo!)
  4. same here! *sigh* well, at least it was easy to install... maybe the upgrade will be just as easy!? on the plus side I haven't upgraded my other website to WP yet... thanks for the heads up Raul
  5. Hey guys There's a website that offers a service of registering dancers for competitions online. For some of these competitions, they get an extraordinary amount of hits the day it opens. I know some of these competitions have a limit to the number of dancers in the 1500-2000 range. For whatever reason, some of us are a little too obsessed and feel the need to ALL try to sign up the second they open registration. Is there a TCH plan that can handle a heavy hit load like that? (say 500+ hits at the same time-I really couldn't tell you how many people are actually hitting it in that opening time frame - maybe it's more than that) The service uses a number of databases to display the various competition entries as well as to gather the competitor's info. All of us competition obsessed people are getting really aggrevated with this company as they've been having this problem for over a year now and nothing seems to be getting fixed. If you have a plan that can handle the load, I'd love to recommend you guys to them. ~Christy who happily has two sites here already, and possibly more brewing
  6. just wondering if the above poster who was using 4images got it working. I've neglected it for a few months and have just noticed it's no longer working for me... I tried removing the 'convert' from when I originally installed, and no luck... guess, I'll submit a help ticket
  7. Thanks Bruce. I'll be sure to check out the tutorials. Now, to back up the old before installing the new...
  8. Hi all... I tried searching and got a bit overwhelmed and didn't really find what I'm wondering here... I currently run two sites that have blogs, one with MT & the other with Blogger. I've never been able to figure out how to modify MT to match the rest of my site's layout. I want something more than blogger, but MT is too overwhelming to update design/layout-wise. I'm leaning towards WordPress Is WP easier to use with regards to updating the design/layout? Thanks ~Christy
  9. I'll agree with Bruce - margins would be nice. I'm on IE right now, and I keep looking for a bottom scroll bar - it feels like there should be more to the page. but overall, I like it
  10. don't know if this is standards-compliant (I haven't actually finished anything to go over and check it lately), but sometimes I'll have my links open in a new window by using "target=linked"... since I'm not using frames, it opens in a new window, and if they don't close the window, everything targeted to it opens in that same window. so it's only mildly annoying. anyone know if they're going to take that trick away? I suppose since it's a frame window reference they can't. maybe.
  11. lately my blog has been getting a fair bit of spam. not constant, but a couple messages a week. it's rather annoying. I'm using Movable Type v2.64. would updating to v3.x help it or does anyone know of a setting/add-on/whatever that could help stop this? tia! ~Christy
  12. the 4images gallery also has a built in e-card function.
  13. I started out with a CGI script (forget what is was off the top of my head). It was good, but once I saw Gallery, I decided to 'upgrade'. Of course, as soon as I had Gallery up, I saw Coppermine, was about to switch to it but couldn't get at it (the whole website locked up problem), and ended up using the one from 4images instead. Gallery was nice, but I didn't like what it did, and I never fully got around to modding it properly. I like 4images, but it can be difficult to get help as their site/forums are primarily in German (thank goodness for Google's translation tool!)
  14. well, if we're including Ariel & the gypsy from Hunchback, shouldn't we include Jasmine from Aladdin? btw, are we talking the "beast" beast, or the prince beast? cuz I just rewatched that movie last week, and I wasn't impressed with him...
  15. with regards to the templates question... are you trying to use Dreamweaver's Template function? if so, save the file as a template. anything you want to edit from page to page will need to be set as an 'editable' region - under the 'Modify' menu towards the bottom is the Templates commands/functions ... in it's sub-menu is something about editable regions. Then, to make a file based off of it, choose 'New...' from the File menu. There's a tab for Templates - you can pick your template from there, and then you can put page-specific info into your editable regions. I'm using Dreamweaver MX, though that shouldn't make too much of a difference. There's quite a bit of info in DW's Help files as well - that's how I started learning about them. Also, point of note that if your site is HUGE, then the template function can be a pain - it'll have to update every individual page, and then you'll need to upload all those pages. For things like headers & footers, maybe menus, PHP can be nice. Just change one file, and all the pages that reference it will update.
