Re: [WSG] Question on servers and Email campaign

2008-11-11 Thread Andrew Brown

Don't share your root access with anyone.

I have a client that is purchasing E-mail listings from a company

they can download their

Software onto my server for my clients email campaign.

I refuse to give anyone access to MY server let alone my root access.

Am I being rude and uncooperative on this or am I right?

According to the lady I spoke with she claims that I am  
uncooperative and that they have many

Companies give out there root access information to their servers.

I just can NOT put my other clients at risk and give some other  
company access to my server
Where they have full access to my server and all of my clients and  
my servers information and in
Addition they can do as they please once I give them my root access  
information.


Again, I would like to thank all for reading this post and I do hope  
this is not against WSG standards.
But I am really needing confirmation that I am not losing it and  
that I was right in protecting

My clients as well as my server.

They are generally set up by the person who owns the email address

Basically say if you were going away for 2 weeks, but didn’t want  
people thinking you were ignoring them (handy for work etc) you  
would set up the auto responder with that message.




That’s about it..

[WSG] [IE7 Glitch] footer is expanding, and acting wonky with scrolling.

2008-10-09 Thread Andrew Brown

Hi WSG!

I've got a footer with rounded corners.
I have a div.footer_wrap and div.footer for each corner.
The technique worked already with all my other rounder corners.
The only issue appears in the footer, maybe because its the only thing  
prone to scroll?


Does anyone know what would fix this? I exhausted my self with various  
solutions.

The live demo is here: http://monsterboxpro.com/dump/webtemp/index.html

Re: [WSG] [IE7 Glitch] footer is expanding, and acting wonky with scrolling.

2008-10-09 Thread Andrew Brown

Margin is already set to zero.
Removing the padding will fix it, but then there's no padding which  
defeats the purpose.
Remove the p doesn't seem proper practice, and then applying padding  
to either div footer elements still causes the problem.
Its just strange its only a problem with the footer and no other  
element with rounded corners on my page.


I've come across this IE glitch I just can't find the solution to  
solve it again.

[WSG] Layout Glitch :: Help Me!

Hello community, I am having one of those want to pull your hair out

Here is the URL

Problem:
View this page in FireFox: Looks beautiful.
View this page in IE 6: Gap above my header div element.

I could place the div tag inside the header to remove the gap but then my
corners will not be transparent. Maybe someone has a magical CSS attribute
to solve my problem?

That's a typical HTML problem in IE/win. IE interprets an empty element
as if it has content inside, and adds line-height to it. That creates
the gap.

Solution: put an HTML comment inside the empty div, as IE6 will then
treat it correctly as if it has no content, thus no line-height.

div class=container_top!-- --/div

You can also define 'font-size: 1px; line-height: 0;' to the empty
element and achieve the same effect. Not as reliable though.

You should definitely go with the same CSS for all pages. CSS gets
cached by the browser, so even if you have 100 pages, the stylesheet
only gets downloaded once. If it really does get heavy, you can break
it up into 2 or 3 files, but the point is to reuse the file from page
to page.

 I have gone about creating this site for a class I have.
 I have been using in the past XHTML 1.0 strict but the doctype we must use

Firstly, XHTML 1.1 Strict doesn't exist, it's just XHTML 1.1.  Don't 
confuse it with XHTML 1.0 Strict/Transitional/Frameset, there are no 
such variants for XHTML 1.1.  Secondly, is your teacher aware of the 
fact that real world browsers don't support XHTML 1.1 properly, and that 
some don't support it at all?  Most notably, no version of IE supports 
it - anyone who says (or tries to show) otherwise is lying.  Perhaps my 
recent article would be an enlightening read for both you and your teacher.

http://lachy.id.au/log/2005/12/xhtml-beginners

 I have already know the problem is some kind of rule issue. I am
researching
 the problem currently but if anyone already knows the anwser it would be
 greatly appericated.
 
 Please view this page both in IE 6 and Firefox.
 
 http://www.monsterboxproductions.com/hwk/thedigitallibary/index.html

It appears to work in Firefox, IE7 and Opera just fine (though, it 
really only works in IE thinks it's receiving HTML, not XHTML - it's a 
MIME type issue).  I don't have IE6 available to test in without 
uninstalling IE7.  However, you need to be aware that using the XML 
declaration triggers quirks mode in IE6 (they fixed that bug in IE7) and 
this may be the cause of your immediate problem.

Remove this line:  ?xml version=1.0 encoding=utf-8?


To fix any other problems correctly, it requires using the correct MIME 
type.  The easiest way is to change the file extension to .xht or .xhtml 
and add this line to your .htaccess file on your server (create it if 
you don't have one, Google for .htaccess files for more info)

AddType application/xhtml+xml .xht .xhtml

(After doing this, you won't be able to view it in IE, only Firefox, 
Opera and other descent modern browsers, but you will learn a valuable 
lesson none-the-less)

[WSG] [Fixed div elements] - Having troubles with IE

2006-01-31 Thread Andrew Brown
Hello WSG,

I am currently building a website. It displays correctly in Fire Fox
but I am having difficulties with Internet Explorer.

http://www.monsterboxproductions.com/pcmedic_temp/pcmedic_temp.html

The page has two fixed div elements. There is a div at the top and bottom of
the page. I was previously having difficulties getting the bottom div to
correctly display but I have overcome that problem. My problem is the fact
that the page in Internet Explorer is not scrollable. I am not sure why and 

I was using tagsoup's tutorial on having fixed div elements to display
properly.
http://tagsoup.com/-dev/null-/css/fixed/#demos
 
Any suggestions are appreciated.

For easy of use I have added mirco buttons on the bottom the page to check
validation and to view the code. I would like to give credit to
http://www.slipsnisse.se/ for their Esacpe HTML coding tool

Hey Grant,

I changed the doctype to strict locally and still the scrollbar does
appear. I also already have those additional tags added. Do you know of a
website that has enough content that scrolls and has div banners such as
mine only done in css? I cannot say I have saw many that do. I am still on
top of this. 

Thanks for the link Grant :)

IE (up to IE6) does not recognise position:fixed.
Try something like

Cheers,
