  1. So, I spent the past few hours implementing this great EXTJS editor grid: http://www.extjs.com/deploy/dev/examples/grid/edit-grid.html I wrote a routine to pull data out of the database (MSSQL) and dump it to XML so this grid could read and display it. And then I realize that I somehow have to figure out how to get the data BACK INTO the database. Since I can't write the data to anything and store that back to the server using JS... how the hell am I supposed to use this thing? Have I just wasted several hours of research and coding?? I guess one approach would be sending all the data back via AJAX, but there has to be a cleaner approach, right? Has anyone dealt with this?

    I hate IE7

    haku, thanks for the info. I did some research into that and tried a few other things, but zoom:1; doesn't seem to have any effect on the problem. On the pop-up, I guess what I don't understand is that the code is the same on the home page and the sub-pages... and that portion that displays that menu is exactly the same. So I don't understand why it would do that. And I don't think it's controlled by JS... I think it's a CSS thing. There are no mouseover or mouseout events for those items.

    I hate IE7

    So I have a site designed and it looks great in both IE8 and Firefox. But when I turn on compatibility mode in IE, I have 4 issues: http://www.americanbeautytools.com/v2/ - logo does not appear in upper left http://www.americanbeautytools.com/v2/intldist - any other subpage (not the product pages), the main portion of the menu does not appear http://www.americanbeautytools.com/v2/intldist - the red box with the 5 links in the lower left (found on the homepage) is completely missing on all the subpages. http://www.americanbeautytools.com/v2/models/rs/108 - any subpage, the box that appears if you hover over "Site Search" or "Dealer Search" in the upper right corner does not disappear when you mouse-out. It works correctly on the homepage. Can anyone help me correct these issues? And please let me know if you need any of the source or more information. CSS hates me, I swear.

    Footer won't center

    Thanks n000bie. Not sure how those got in there... they certainly aren't needed!
  5. http://www.americanbeautytools.com/v2/ Any clue why the footer won't center? This is driving me insane! #footer { position: relative; height: 31px !important; padding: 10px; width: 1063px; color: rgb(102,102,102); font-size: 10px; text-align: center; }

    hidden level?

    Please show me a rule I have broken.

  8. You need to float both left. And put your clearing div after the login box. I'm about 90% sure that will work. The only thing I'm not sure is how to get the widths right.

    hidden level?

    *snip* Look at the teaser bar in the bottom right. See how the images sit lower than the gray bars that provide the navigation on the teaser bar? I can't figure out why it's sitting lower. And if I change the top position on the li elements, it moves them up but the tops of the images disappear. It's like there is something sitting on top of it that has a higher z-index or something. Can anyone help me figure out how to line them up?
  10. Yeah, that's what I'm gathering from some further googling. I guess I'm going to throw in absolute paths. SUCK.
  11. Thinking about this further, I guess I could use PHP to dynamically build the absolute path. Just seems like a hassle.
  12. So then I have to change every path in every file when I move everything to the final (production) location? No thanks. I'd rather deal with the 'less than pretty' URLs. Good to see you too Steve. Yeah, been too busy to hit this place up lately. I'll give that a whirl.
  13. <link rel="stylesheet" href="style/DefaultNew.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style/Print.css" type="text/css" media="print"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style/CSS.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style/search.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style/home.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style/200803.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection, print"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style/200811.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection, print"> <script type="text/javascript" src="libs/jquery-1.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="libs/Default.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="libs/swfobject.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="libs/__utm.js"></script><script language="JavaScript1.5">_ujv='1.5';</script> <script type="text/javascript" src="libs/redesign.js"></script>
  14. So here is my structure: public_html /site -> production site /v2 -> testing site I've added a .htaccess file to the v2 directory to play with rewriting the urls. I want www.test.com/v2/models/ab/75 to be the URL and for it to actually display www.test.com/v2/index.php?req=prod&cat=ab&model=75 I'm using the following rule in the .htaccess file at the v2 level: RewriteRule ^models/([a-z]+)/([0-9]+)$ v2/index.php?req=prod&cat=$1&model=$2 [NC,L] It works, and loads the page, and the URL stays as I would like, but all of my CSS/JS/ and images do not load because they all use relative paths. Any ideas how I can get around that?
  15. So FCKeditor got upgraded to "CKeditor 3.0". Great... no built-in file browser but they're pushing CKFinder... which has a steep license fee. Anyone know of a decent web file browser/managers that can be integrated with other rich editors?
  16. I also agree that I've seen the "on the hour lags" as well. Dan, you know the server jobs and setups better than me... if you say you don't have anything setup, maybe Eric does?

    Is it ethical?

    And ALWAYS add a clause to your contracts that gives you the power to remove or disable any work you provide if payment is not received. Also, never release anything to the client without final payment. Always develop locally and transfer to their server upon payment.
  18. 100% sure. If I change the query to cause a different error, it throws that error. It isn't requesting it twice (I am using FF however) but I know the variables are not empty.... and regardless, there is no 'and' in the query to begin with. I think there is a permissions problem with that table. I attempted to add the field to a different table and I can update that one just fine. Now I'm wondering if there is a "repair" type function for MSSQL.
  19. Well, he did say free... so Dan can't chime in and post about vBulletin.
  20. My update statement looks like this: $query = "UPDATE DTCONTRACT SET sponsor_addr = '".$_REQUEST['addr']."' WHERE CONTRACT_ID = '".$_REQUEST['exist_study']."'"; This is only for testing so don't get me on security. I can take the resulting output of that query and run it directly in Enterprise Manager and it works great. When I run this same query via the PHP page, it says: UPDATE DTCONTRACT SET sponsor_addr = 'test test fd' WHERE CONTRACT_ID = 'ADD06053' Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'and'. THERE IS NO 'AND' IN THE GD QUERY. I can insert into and update other tables in the database but this one is giving me a problem. I assumed a permission problem but I don't think it would let me update other tables if that was the case. Can anyone think of a reason why it would throw that error?
  21. There is an entire sticky of quality hosts in this board. I'll leave this open in case someone wants to respond to the email part of the request.
  22. SMF (what we use) is free and pretty decent (some might argue with me). Gallery2 seems to get the most praise from this site. I've used it and it seems a little bloated but it is very feature-rich.
  23. 1 Or MovableType... but I prefer wordpress.
