  1. Not quite yet. It will become a feature at some point, but it will take a while before it becomes possible and practical.
  2. The only way that you can use a non-standard font is by having all of your users download it to. You'd need to create image text instead if you wanted that font to look the same for everyone.
  3. The code snippet you need is right there in your quoted text.
  4. Nope. Not in CSS2, at least. CSS3 might offer that feature, but I doubt it. Resizing images is done either by the image tag or an image editing program, not CSS.
  5. You [i]don't[/i] reccomend tables for layout. You just don't. If you learn CSS-real CSS, not layers CSS-then Dreamweaver works very well.
  6. On your user page, the background images take forever to load, leaving me with something I can't use-white on white. In addition to that, everything on your site is fixed-width except for that page-that one goes out full width. More detail later.
  7. Now, this is a reasonably well-made site, but I have a few complaints. First off, your header: the all-text header doesn't look very good, and the heart inside it just doesn't work well, considering how much it sticks out. Also, on your front page blocks with images, I really don't like the blue text over it. It's hard to read. I would go into more detail, but then I noticed that your login system doesn't let me log in. Oh, and my search pulled up a picture of a plant.
  8. Um... what was the point of that front page? Now, for a band with the name "Shroud of Bereavement", it sets up expectations for a very dark site. That doesn't mean it has to be that colorless though-try adding a bit of color here and there. On the downloads page, why is it in an iframe? Also, hosting your music on MySpace doesn't seem very professional. But then, neither does using an outside forum in a new window. For what you use, it would be much simpler to just write an integrated forum system. It's good, but not the best band site ever made.
  9. Ah. That would keep it from working.
  10. So that the two don't look like two completely separate entities. Also, so that people don't need to register, then register again-that's just annoying.
  11. For one thing, your buttons look disabled-don't use grey borders and text unless you want to show that the button doesn't work! For another thing, you still need to integrate the site and the forums. They are two completely separate designs-not good planning.
  12. Did you add the ; end tag? Is it grammatically correct when you put it in? Because it's always worked for me. I've got a live site you can see that uses it, in fact.
  13. [a href=\"http://www.interaktonline.com/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.interaktonline.com/[/a] They may cost some money, but they're well worth it.
  14. If you don't have your php code on a php server, then it won't work. Try it on your host to see if that helps.
  15. Try going with a CSS menu. For an example, try looking at css/edge for their implementation of it.
  16. You don't need to include the input button. If we can't figure out how you marked up your forms, then we should be called amateurs and thrown to the wolves. That being said, did you include values and names for the options? I've done stupid stuff like that before.
  17. Slowly getting there... Just a quick comment here: don't bevel your menu buttons. That effect is so 1995. Second quick comment: your valid CSS button [a href=\"http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fkevona.co.uk%2F&usermedium=all\" target=\"_blank\"]is a lie.[/a]
  18. You know, you could also do that with Javascript or CSS, thus making your life easier, right?
  19. Why did you put the contents of the ENTIRE BIBLE on a demonstration page? It takes an eternity and a half to load! Put a limit statement in your query or something!
  20. Service and repair? I thought you meant mowing lawns. First things first: Get rid of everything above your DTD. If you don't, then IE will go into quirks mode and screw up your site miserably. Second, dump the background and button colors-rather to just use the default buttons. I don't really like what you've done with your navigation. All buttons and no text links? What's up with that? Aside from that, this is an exceedingly simple app that should work for a simple company. Won't win any design awards though. Almost forgot: TABLES ARE EVIL! GET RID OF THE TABLES!
  21. Oddly enough, my use of that same thing doesn't make it not validate. Weird.
  22. Sorry about the link-fixed it. Out of curiosity, do you plan on including WYSIWYG or URL rewriting? Because those are two features I'd kill to see in a forum system. Maybe [a href=\"http://dojotoolkit.org/\" target=\"_blank\"]dojo[/a] could help you there. And as for the logo, why does it have to be a PNG? Next to no one supports that.
  23. Tables. TABLES. You designed your system using TABLES for layout. Now, for the forums posts, they're fine, but for everything else, why not use CSS? Now then, on to the review: lighten the backgrounds a little-they don't have enough contrast with the black text. In your breadcrumbs, increase the padding and remove the underlines. I don't like the orange border around grey boxes in your post view-stick with the dark grey borders instead. And PLEASE bring those font sizes up a bit. They look tiny. And when you log in, your tables that hold the images to create the angles at the top mess up. Now, one of the things that I don't like about fixed-width designs is the fact that they seem so small on my screen. As in, it takes up roughly a third of my screen, leaving you with a lot of blank, unused whitespace. Overall, a good design, but not great. Now, for funtionality: Going out on a limb here, but For your registration page, why did you put the labels on the right and your fields to the left? That goes against all common sense (Also, for accessibility, try making the labels <label> tags with the for attribute). While I was browsing around, I noticed that it said "Latest Post" and then showed the username and the time. Now the question is: what topic was it in? Sure, I could open up the forum and look, but where's the fun in that? I also ran your page through the w3c validation service. [a href=\"http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.generation-designs.co.uk%2Fosf%2Findex.php\" target=\"_blank\"]21 errors[/a] is a fairly large amount. All in all, this is a fair design and an okay forum system so far. It still needs some work though.
