  1. Aaaa! Me :unsure: Sorry. We (yes the February Family Member Of The Month and I) stand corrected.



    You can combine the styles for these tags by placing them both in the same line and separating them by a comma.


    A, a:visited{some styles}


    Again, I stand corrected (am I taller now?).

  2. Place something similar to the code below before </head> in your document. In Dreamweaver, this is under CSS Properties. I included all states (link/visted/hover/active). The text-decoration: none; is defining no underline. You can see that when we place the curser over the link an underline appears (text-decoration: underline for a:hover).


    Play around with different combinations and see what works best for you.


    Hope this helps.


    ><style type="text/css">
    a:link {
    color: #333366;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-style: normal;
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    a:visited {
    color: #CCCCCC;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-style: normal;
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    a:hover {
    color: #FFFFFF;
    text-decoration: underline;
    font-style: normal;
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    a:active {
    color: #CCCCCC;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-style: normal;
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

  3. Hey Wild One:


    Where are your Babes and Bikes pictures :D


    Sorry, ladies but it does not hurt to look ;)


    We added you to our Nonprofit and Informational Sites page. Could have added you to the personal page if you prefer but I am thinking that your content best fits with 'Informational Sites'. Let me know if you prefer a change.


    Words of wisdom: Make your home.html page your index.html (i.e. get rid of the 'Enter') ;)

  4. Tim:


    We have added TCE to our Web Hosting Family Members page :D


    SEO thoughts:



    Well from the SEO Articles within the TotalChoice web site and SEO Tutorials within the forum, you know that selecting your keyword phrase(s) is very important.


    Not sure you have decided which is the best for you. Without doing proper research (any for that matter), I am thinking that 'Southern California Printing' might be you best bet... again no research.


    We will use that for now though.


    <title> perfect Thumbs Up


    <meta name="description" content="Southern California printing from TCE offers x, y an z (just name a few of your majors). Keep this relatively short.


    <meta name="keywords" look good too Thumbs Up


    Whoa, just found a bunch of broken links ;)


    Most of your image links on the bottom are dead (postcards, brochure, etc.) A spider will frown on this.


    You have a Zimmer Tech link on all pages, would be much better (for you and them) if you added a new page with body text relative to Zimmer Tech and their service and then link only from that page to their site.


    You need Alt tags on all your images. Also would be wise to set height and width values.


    You need to clean up some of you HTML. Example:


    ><TD ROWSPAN="1" COLSPAN="4" WIDTH="768" HEIGHT="17"align="right">
    <a href="signup.php">
    <a href="awards.html"></a>
    <a href="friends.html"></a>


    This should help... good luck.

  5. Yes, alt tags are considered.


    ps is there a reliable tool online to calculate the keyword density?


    None that take stemming in consideration (at least none that I am aware of), might be best to write your own if you are serious.

  6. Everything in your cgi-bin was placed by you... promise :(


    Found this about randhtml:


    The Random HTML generator can be used to pick a text (or HTML) string out of a list of possibilities and insert it into an SSI enabled (.shtml) web page. This is useful for including random text or HTML code in pages so as to produce varied quotes, images or just about anything else.


    Before using this script in your web pages you will first need to set it up by entering a number of lines of text. The script can then be used to pick one of these lines of text at random and include it in your web page(s). Begin by clicking the Random HTML link from within the Script Centre in your Control Panel. You can then enter a number of sections of text in the box provided. Each section of text needs to go on its own line. You cannot include newline characters in the middle of a single piece of text as this will cause it to be treated as two separate sections of text. Of course, you can include the HTML <br> tag to represent a newline within a section of HTML code.

    When you have finished entering sections of text for the script to choose from, click on the Save button.

    You may return to this page at any time to add, delete or modify the sections of text you have entered.


    As mentioned above, the Random HTML feature makes use of Server Side Includes (SSI), so you will need to give any pages which are to use it an extension of .shtml instead of the normal .html or .htm web page extension. The following code should be included in your .shtml page(s) at the position in the page(s) where you want the random content to appear:


    <!--#exec cmd="cgi-bin/randhtml.cgi"-->


    Your .shtml web pages must be placed in the top level public_html folder in order to successfully call the Random HTML generator. The script won't work if called from a web page in a sub folder.


    As an alternative to modifying your random sections of text through your Control Panel, you may instead prefer to create an ordinary text file containing your random lines of text. You can then upload this file using an FTP program (or the File Manager), in place of the existing random text file if it already exists. The random text file is called .randhtml and is located in the top level folder of your account space. As the .randhtml file name begins with a full stop character it is a hidden file and will normally be hidden from view. You will need to set up your FTP program to allow the viewing of hidden files in order to see it on the server.


    The Random HTML generator works by calling a file called randhtml.cgi which is automatically installed in your public_html/cgi-bin folder when you select the Random HTML option from the Script Centre in your Control Panel.
