  1. By serendipity, I upgraded Firefox on my computer last night before I saw this post. I installed v0.9.3. Does anyone know if this is the most recent version, or will I need to reinstall? By the way, Raul, the first website you list: gives me a 404 error page when I try to visit it. Can you find that page again and repost the link? Also, thanks for keeping us up-to-date an all kinds of security issues. You and Madman are like the TCH's own personal security sentinels!
  2. You basically have two options ... (1) put the code in a separate file called "mysitestyle.css" (or whatever you want to call it). You would then code EACH PAGE USING THAT FILE as the following code sample illustrates: >... <head> ... <link rel="stylesheet" href="location/of/your/css/file/mysitestyle.css" type="text/css" /> ... </head> (2) put the code into each page as follows: >... <head> ... <style type="text/css"> <!-- a, a:link{ color: #036; text-decoration: underline; font-weight:bold;} a:visited { color: #036; text-decoration: underline; font-weight: normal;} a:active, a:hover { color: #999; text-decoration: underline; font-weight:bold;} --> </style> ... </head>
  3. Here's some sample CSS code for you. >a, a:link{ color: #036; text-decoration: underline; font-weight:bold;} a:visited { color: #036; text-decoration: underline; font-weight: normal;} a:active, a:hover { color: #999; text-decoration: underline; font-weight:bold;} It will underline all links. Unvisited links will be colored as #036 and made bold, visited links will be colored as #036, but not bold, and active or hovered links will be bold but the color will be changed to #999.
  4. Thanks for the tips. When I tried to share the drive, the default came up as E$, so I left it at that, and it seems to be working just fine. I can now see E: on my computer in the second bedroom from the computer in our home office (they are in two separate rooms).
  5. This is a really dumb question, but I can't seem to find the answer on google. Maybe I'm using the wrong search phrase. Basically, I want to share a drive on my computer with the other computer on my home network. I open File Explorer, highlight the drive I want to share, then right click and select Properties. In the pop-up dialog box, I choose the tab called "Sharing" and select the box that says "Share this folder". Then, I'm asked to give it a share name. I vaguely recall doing this a few years ago, and I shared my drive with the name of E$. I've also seen drives shared as E. What is the difference between E$ and E?
  6. Raul, The Flash Satay method works super duper. I'm pleased with the results. Thank you for the very valuable link. Carol, I'll have to check out the link you provided. If the method documented there is superior to the Flash Satay method, then I will definitely be interested. If you are interest, you can both check out the [now] XHTML-valid clock at http://www.doggydiaries.pudgypuppy.com/. It's in the upper left hand corner... By the way, the clock was not my creation. I don't want to give the mistaken impression that I know even one iota about Flash. I downloaded the clock from ClockLink.com.
  7. You were right, Raul. I didn't find any evidence that <embed> is an allowed tag in XHTML. I took your advice and tried the <object></object> sets of tags, but that didn't work either. Until I can figure it out, however, I've disabled the clock from my page. The clock was a flash object. I haven't done any work with Flash at all, so maybe you can help me out. How do web designers embed Flash stuff into their pages? I looked at W3Schools for the <object> tag information, but I didn't notice any attribute that I could use to tell the <object> to pull a file from a different website and embed it as a Flash object.
  8. I'm trying to embed a clock (see www.clocklink.com) into a web site built with the XHTML 1.0 Transitional DTD. My page won't validate because the object is embedded as ><embed src="http://www.clocklink.com/Clocks/5001-Gray.swf?TimeZone=PST&DateFormat=DD-mm-YYYY" width="199" height="20" wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"> and the XHTML 1.0 Trans DTD does not allow the "src" attribute inside <embed> objects. Does anyone know how to fix this?
  9. Congrats on figuring it out for yourself. I know it's nice to have help, but I also know the great feeling of figuring it out on my own. I've done this quite a few times with MT. Also, if you ever have MT questions, you can post them at http://www.movabletype.org/support/. Sometimes you will get a very fast response there, especially from the likes of Maddy and Tweezerman. Those two individuals are quick on the draw! I notice that you have a very cute coffee cup before each line that says "Angie babbling at ..." Would you tell me where you got that graphic? I think it's very cute and would like to download one for myself!
  10. Will you please provide a URL for the page you're working on so we can get a visual on it? Thanks!
  11. Wow. Lots of commentary going on here! Thanks for the helpful input. This is my first foray into anything like this, so I'll be taking it slowly, just one step at a time. I do have a rather stupid/noob question *blushing sheepishly*. Can I set up an existing computer as a webserver? Or will I need to purchase a new machine to do that? For example, I have two computers at home. One running Win2K and the other WinXP. Can I arbitrarily assign my Win2K machine as my webserver, install Apache, and <em>still</em> use it as a regular computer? You know, I worked for 1.5 years in the IT department at Unisys. But I was only a student intern and was never involved in server management or administration, so from an IT standpoint, the job was useless to me ... (not that I was working there to gain an IT education mind you ... I'm just saying that even though I worked in the IT department, I didn't learn anything about IT.)
  12. I have two machines. One is running Win2K and the other WinXP... P.S. -- Glad to know that you're not that much of a smarty pants (or should I say smart arsed?) that you won't just say "yes" and leave it at that!
  13. I'd like to know if it is possible to install Perl and PHP on my local machine (home computer). I want to work through a couple of tutorial books I've purchased, and it would be much easier to do this if they were both installed locally rather than having to do it via FTP or using cPanel's editor program.
  14. For bunni and danceswithscissors, What version of Firefox are you running? I'm at work, and my install of Firefox is v0.8. This is the one that I had to clear the cache and history before being able to see the favicon.
  15. Thanks, I see it now, too. I don't know what the problem was because I had tried refresh when I didn't see it the first time. I guess it was a caching issue on my local machine...
  16. I installed MT a few months ago, and I do remember setting up my database before installing. I'm not sure if that helps or not, but for what it's worth, you at least know how one person here did it!
  17. I've created a 16x16 favicon for my blog. I started with a 16x16 bitmap image that I renamed to "favicon.ico". Next, I uploaded this to the directory /doggydiaries/favicon.ico. My blog is located at http://www.doggydiaries.pudgypuppy.com/, so I put the favicon in the /doggydiaries/ directory. When I view my blog, however, the favicon is noticeably absent. Instead, there's just a blank space where it should be displayed. Any idea how to fix this problem? Thanks!
  18. Thanks for the tip. I just set it up, so we'll see how well it works!
  19. Actually, I can't be sure that it will all be spam. The problem is that I have some stubborn relatives who still insist on sending mail to my kaseyscreations.com address. I could just cut them off and let mail bounce back to them, but I'd rather not have to do that until absolutely pushed to when the domain name expires. Until then, I want to monitor the email coming in to kaseyscreations.com so I can see who is still using the old address instead of my new address.
  20. Thanks Tracy, I'll check out the link you supplied. However, I didn't use any scrolling divs in the page at all. You can check it out at http://www.thevillagepantry.com/, if you're interested. Be sure to look at it in both IE and a Mozilla-based browser. You'll see a large amount of excess space at the bottom of the page in IE.
  21. Hi all, I've got some problems with spam mail and I'm hoping someone has an answer. I have three domain names, all of which are parked on top of my single hosting account here at TCH. I have set up a default address (in cPanel under "Mail" --> "Default Address") for the domain 'kaseyscreations.com' such that all mail sent to domain kaseyscreations.com should be forwarded to my email address at yahoo.com. Instead, what's happening is that mail sent to any email address at kaseyscreations.com is being received by my primary email address (cpanelusername@pudgypuppy.com). I never use the domain kaseyscreations.com. I'm just waiting for it to expire. So I know that any mail I get at that domain is spam. How can I set it up to forward automatically to my Yahoo account where I don't have to worry about it eating up space and bandwidth on my hosting account for pudgypuppy.com? Thanks.
  22. I've never come across this before, but I'm certainly interested in hearing how to resolve this issue. I have a similar one going on with a site I built, but I think my problem has to do with a broken IE box model because the extra space only shows up in IE.
  23. You can disregard my previous post. I got it all figured out. I put a new .htaccess file in my subdomain directory. The only line in that file is >ErrorDocument 404 http://www.doggydiaries.pudgypuppy.com/404.php The .htaccess in the TLD (pudgypuppy.com) has not been altered. Once I create a custom error page for pudgypuppy.com, I should be able to access it using this line in the .htaccess file for pudgypuppy.com: >ErrorDocument 404 http://www.pudgypuppy.com/404.php
  24. Rob, If I code my .htaccess file that way, will that redirect error pages only for the subdomain "doggydiaries.pudgypuppy.com"? I don't have a custom error page set up under the TLD yet, so I'm not sure how it would redirect if someone were to try to reach the page doggydiaries.pudgypuppy.com/nosuchpageexists.htm versus trying to reach the page pudgypuppy.com/nosuchpageexists.htm.
  25. I'm trying to use .htaccess to redirect users to a custom error page inside my MT installation (so I can use my blog templates). I've set it up in .htaccess as >Redirect /home/cpanelname/public_html/doggydiaries/404.shtml http://www.pudgypuppy.com/doggydiaries/404.php where doggydiaries is set up as a subdomain. I then installed a custom error page at http://www.pudgypuppy.com/doggydiaries/404.php. When I tested it out, however, by using the page http://www.doggydiaries.pudgypuppy.com/hello.php, I was not redirected. Instead, I received the standard, non-friendly error message as shown in the attached image. Any idea how to fix this so I can successfully redirect users to an error page that makes us of my MovableType templates? Thanks.
