  1. We have a solution! If you care to call it that My client panicked at the mere idea of having to do anything herself & asked me to remove the guestbook. Problem solved. Perhaps the next time a client asks for a guestbook I'll do the Lazarus install right from the outset!
  2. I'll have a look at it - thanks Don! I suspect my client won't want to be involved in moderating messages & frankly I don't have the time available to run that part of her site...... hence wanting to amend the visitors' options a little rather than install a different script
  3. One of my clients' guestbooks has started to be spammed & a couple of changes to the message entry options would help her a lot. I wonder if any of you script gurus out there can give me some pointers please? I don't want to install anything fancy since she's not up to speed with managing scripts (it's not my strongest suit either - I hit the upgrade button late last night & had to ask the Help Desk to put the resulting mess right a few seconds later. Yikes!!). All I'm looking to do at this point is to stop anyone adding comments to existing messages plus stopping anyone including their own url in the data they provide. I'm not confident about finding the relevant bits of code within the g/b admin to fiddle with this myself - can anyone tell me what I should be altering/removing to achieve what I want to do? Many thanks in advance!
  4. Ah - I was being dense - too much Christmas cheer!! Thank you Thomas, the link works perfectly & the description you've added is exactly what I hoped for
  5. Thanks Thomas! Although I'm not sure what you mean by verifying that it looks/works as expected?
  6. I've been away from the forums for a while but I'm back with another site, this time for a new family business. I'd really appreciate if it could be added please URL: http://www.therightstreet.com Site name: therightstreet.com Description: A definitive map guide to Stratford-upon-Avon and its surroundings for tourists, business people, RSC theatre goers, shoppers and local inhabitants. Simple, user-friendly maps detail tourist attractions, hotels, restaurants, shops, local services & more. The site is commercial. The linkback is here: http://www.therightstreet.com/stratford/Stratford.htm Many thanks for your consideration!
  7. I've always automatically sent a thank you reply - only afterwards did I wonder if I was supposed to The help desk has always been right on the ball
  8. Well what can I say other than I bought 2 new domain names last night & in less than an hour they'd been parked on my existing domain & it's all systems go - I'm breathless!!
  9. Yes he is! Books that hold you spellbound - often literally ) I've read The Lovely Bones too, Marie B. Fascinating concept & a good read
  10. It seems The Da Vinci Code is a top read just now I got it for Christmas & enjoyed it so much I've just read Digital Fortress by the same author. Also High Fidelity by Nick Hornby (since I love the film) & currently reading The Elder Gods by David & Leigh Eddings.
  11. WooHoo!! Welcome to 'the Old Country'
  12. I have a large number of fonts in a folder on my HD, although I recently weeded them out & reduced them to about 1500. Ruthless Only the original fonts that came with Windows are actually installed - I browse myfolder/subfolders for what I want to use & open it then minimise it. That way it appears in my list for the duration & I'm not slowing down the loading of any program You can use a font program (there are several that I'm sure people here will have advice on for you) but this way works fine for me.
  13. Hey there JJ It's Teddy - don't you recognise the tan bits?!! Kate is black & white
  14. Opera is one of the 5 I use for testing templates, but I haven't seen anything to make me use it as my default. It's good but not better than.........
  15. Fabulous to wake up to on a Sunday morning - had me rolling!! Thank you Hope your feet are okay Curtis!
  16. Oh absolutely! My husband & I have been known to MSN messages to each other (his 'puter is upstairs, mine is downstairs), like 'put the coffee on, I'm on my way' And I do climb out of my chair sometimes - got a committee meeting this evening & going to a tsunami fundraising gig tomorrow night. Hmmm....gonna have to spend extra time here next week to make up
  17. Hey there Charlotte - long time no read!! Good to see you again
  18. I wouldn't count watching the TV as socialising time in the first place! Socialising to me means interacting with other people & that surely includes chatting online? Now if I were sitting in a darkened room, cut off from my family & friends, not part of forums or egroups, that would count as being unsociable, but that just doesn't happen
  19. Happy New Year!!! It must already be 2005 in some parts of the world - less than 12 hours to go here in England. I wish you all the very best of everything for the coming 12 months!!
  20. Thanks Thomas - Mozilla is one of the browsers I use to test my designs, so I'd rather not be open to hackers while I do!! Downloading the latest version even as I type
  21. She's adorable! A friend of mine has a Bengal & she's so full of character - I get to hear about all the things she gets up to
  22. I started off using Front Page & from habit I still do *blush* - but with strict reservations (like removing the rubbish FP likes to put in when you're not paying attention & hand coding most of my stuff). I use Top Style Pro 3 for checking html & css & validating. Hmm....overkill I think. I have too many programs! Plus I just downloaded AnyEdit to give that a try. As for the html - xhtml debate, my own site is written in xhtml but the web templates I offer are html. I just reckoned that people who use them are probably more comfortable with html Same with sites I design - if clients want to do all updates themselves I stick to html
