  1. A little more. You are currently using 0 MB (0%) of your 2057 MB.
  2. Can the plugin be developed to avoid all websites that use pop-up banners? this way website developers will be forced to stop adding pop-ups. Better still, can it allow the pop-up to appear but instead replace the content with a picture of something you like, like a family photo, favourite pet, the new girl, you get the idea. Sorry to butt in. I'll get back to my lunch, and the sun is shining AndyP
  3. I've tried a few CMS thingies and I was sort of settled with Typo3 as it is very flexible. I also like the idea that there is a bloke called Kasper dedicating his days to developing this system Although it is very hard to learn and get working the way you want. You almost need to re-learn everything you know about making websites. Very cool system though. I am using it on www.busybea.co.uk but it's not really doing anything functional - more of a learning exercise. Tell us how you get on. Andy
  4. Why do you say no thanks, does it do something dangerous? thanks. Andy
  5. Thanks for doing this. I thought I may have been going mad
  6. Okay, I'll do this but I'm not in any hurry for it. thanks. Andy
  7. I have just been moved to the UK servers (a very quick and efficient move I must add) However, I notice that the cpanel is missing the option to add oscommerce. Am I not looking in the right place? (this new version 9.9.9-STABLE 15 looks different). thanks. Andy
  8. Has anyone tried Jybe on Firefox?
  9. "oh dear" "oh dear" So, When... Are the two (4 and 5) radically different?
  10. I've realised that the book does say to include the >$name = $_POST['name']; at the beginning of the script, but they only say it in a small box because they try to get you to turn on some setting on the server to recognise the items automatically. Thebook is called something like; PHP5 / MySQL for absolute beginners - that's me so onto the next page Andy
  11. Great news. I will look to move in the near future. Andy
  12. You are a genius! "It's alive" Thanks for that, I think I've learnt quite a bit about php in the last 24hrs. thanks. Andy
  13. I can understand what you are saying, but when I try this I just get a blank screen. When I look at the source code given by the browser it looks as though everything between the <body> tag has been deleted. ><html> <head> <title>Hi User</title> </head> <body> <h1>Hi User</h1> <h3>PHP program that receives a value from "whatsName"</h3> <?php $userName = $_POST['userName'] print "$userName"; ?> </body> </html> What does this mean?
  14. Thank you to all for helping. Okay, so I think I'm solving something here but it is leaving me with a big question about the book I'm refering to. To give you a better account of my problem, this is my first html file that gives the userName: ----- whatsName.html ----- <html> <head> <title>What's your name?</title> </head> <body> <h1>What's your name</h1> <h3>Writing a form for user input</h3> <form method = "POST" action = "hiUser.php"> Please type your name: <input type = "text" name = "userName" value = ""> <br> <input type = "submit"> </form> </body> </html> ----- end ----- This is the php file that it looks for (this one doesn't work): ----- hiUser.php ----- <html> <head> <title>Hi User</title> </head> <body> <h1>Hi User</h1> <h3>PHP program that receives a value from "whatsName"</h3> <?php print "$userName = $_POST['userName']"; ?> </body> </html> ----- end ----- This one does work: ---- hiUser.php ----- <html> <head> <title>Hi User</title> </head> <body> <h1>Hi User</h1> <h3>PHP program that receives a value from "whatsName"</h3> <?php print $userName = $_POST['userName']; ?> </body> </html> ----- end ----- Look, no quotes. So does this mean that the book I have refered to is wrong? thanks. Andy
  15. There is an html file that you enter your name: ><html> <head> <title>What's your name?</title> </head> <body> <h1>What's your name</h1> <h3>Writing a form for user input</h3> <form method = "get" action = "hiUser.php"> Please type your name: <input type = "text" name = "userName" value = ""> <br> <input type = "submit"> </form> </body> </html> I've also tried "POST" instead of "GET". I've just tried to reinstall PHP 5.0.3 but it's still the same. I hope there is a light somewhere, this tunnel is turning into a maze thanks. Andy
  16. I think there must be something wrong with my PHP configuration. I have been trying this code ><html> <head> <title>Hi User</title> </head> <body> <h1>Hi User</h1> <h3>PHP program that receives a value from "whatsName"</h3> <?php print "<h3>Hi there, $userName</h3>"; ?> </body> </html> but it still doesn't show the value of userName. I have a feeling I have two versions of PHP installed - would this cause this type of problem? and how can I uninstall PHP from a mac? thanks. Andy
  17. I've started to look at the basics of PHP and have got stuck at the first book I found. I have installed PHP onto my iBook so I can test the scripts on the train. At first it all seemed simple, I started with something I found on the web: ><html> <head> <title>PHP Test</title> </head> <body> <p><h3>Hi <?php echo $_POST['name']; ?>.</h3> You are <?php echo $_POST['age']; ?> years old.</p> </body> </html> This worked fine. So I thought I would progress to a book. I then tried the following: ><html> <head> <title>Hi User</title> </head> <body> <h1>Hi User</h1> <h3>PHP program that receives a value from "whatsName"</h3> <? print "<h3>Hi there,<? $userName! </h3>"; ?> </body> </html> but this failed. I saw the rest of the text but it didn't show me the UserName. There was an html file linked to this to input the UserName. I've basically copied the code from the book. Can anyone tell me why this would happen? Is it my version of PHP (which is 5)? thanks in advance. now it's time to sleep. Andy
  18. Okay, getting back to the topic. I think I may have found someone who has developed a similar theme. http://diveintomark.org/cgi-bin/neighborho...iveintomark.org Mark Pilgrim has made something in Python but it isn't "visual" as in my original plan. I will try to look into this when there is time. Apparently there is a limit on usage with google. thanks. Andy
  19. I don't think it is a serch engine; as it will be using the search engines already available. I guess it is more of a user interface for using other search engines. but I thought I'd let other people have a look to see if it is a viable idea. thanks. Andy
  20. Okay, okay... So nobody like PDFs. Coming from a graphics background I find most people ask for pdfs and I'm more of a visual type of person than words which is why I have to draw pretty pictures. My pdf is about 56k and can be found at http://www.busybea.co.uk/index.php?id=91 If you would like a different format I'm sure I could make one. You'll probably find that loading my web page will take longer than downloading the pdf (sorry about that). It's probably a **** idea anyway, but hey! Look forward to any comments, good or bad. Andy
  21. Yep, that's a good idea. I'll do this and then let you know where it is. thanks Andy
  22. I have had a very quick thought for a new website idea that I know I couldn't create it; with my programming knowledge. But thought that someone out there would. Or they may know that it already exists, or it's a waste of time. The concept structure has been outlined in a pdf file and I wanted to release this on this site to see how it could be developed. Can anyone give any pointers as to what I should do with the pdf so that people can view, and maybe start a discussion on it. It may be a bad idea - but we'll never know if no-one sees it. cheers Andy
  23. I'm probably a bit late here as the forums site only looks new to me today. My only comment (and I guess someone has mentioned it) is "Calander" ? One more, I prefer the old colour of the my controls menu - this light orange is a bit funny on the eyes (for me anyway). Andy
  24. There is a way to show flash content in Dreamweaver. In the properties window there is a play button that will play the movie in the editing window. That's the only way that I stumbled across last week Andy
