Strange page change


Claite

Recommended Posts

I really hope I can explain this properly. I'll try my best but if you still don't understand, please ask.

 

I'm currently working on a page (using tables), and everything is lined up and working properly. However, when I put more content than the height of the browser window, everything shifts and is mis-aligned. Below you can see pics of what happens from being normal, to exceeding text. I put in a scrollable cell for the news, so that it never goes over the size of the browser, but that limits me on how many links I can put, and scrunches the page. I'd prefer to just fix the formatting problem.

 

(posting links do to size)

Also, so I don't start a new topic for no reason.

 

I wrote my own news script in php that reads from a file. The only problem is that I'm using a for loop. How do I write a "while file still has lines" code?

What I have:

<?php

$myFile = "news.txt";

$news = fopen($myFile, 'r');

for ($i = 1; $i <= 5; $i++){

 

but I want it to go for just how many news things I have. Also, later I want to put a limit to 5 news articles. But that's a later problem.

 

Thanks for all the help in advance!

I used a text file because it's easier for me as a user to edit. I just need to open it up and write what I want, then the code for the site takes it and produces the format.

 

Here is my full code after what I post (including what I posted as well):

 

   <!-- ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ NEWS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ -->
     <?php
       $myFile = "news.txt";
       $news = fopen($myFile, 'r');
       for ($i = 1; $i <= 5; $i++){
       $title = fgets($news);
     ?> 

   <font style="font-family:Cambria" size=5><b><?php echo $title ?></b></font>
   <img src="images/newsbar2point0.png"></img>
   <br>
   <img src="images/avatar.png" align="left"></img>

   <?php $name = fgets($news); ?>

   <font color="#AAAAAA" size="2">By <?php echo $name ?></font><br>

   <?php $theData = fgets($news); ?>
   
   <p><?php echo $theData ?></p><br><br>

     <?php
       $blankline = fgets($news);
       }
       fclose($news);
     ?>

 

and here's my text file:

 

Test of php news

Mah Name 2/06/2009

This is a test of my php news program reading from a file. I need to remember to put the new news at the top of the file :P I really hope this works!

 

New Site up! :)

Mah Name 2/05/2009

Welcome to the new site! This will be for everything and anything about me. I'll be posting my work with various programs such as inventor solidworkd, 3ds max, or programming. You can find all those in the tutorial section. Also, I will eventually be integrating a "in-site" private messaging and forums for input on the content of the site. To be honest, eventually this site will be more for you guys then for me. To register go <a href="register.html">HERE</a> This is a test in the change of code :D

 

 

Let me know if you want to see anything else.

1. i just explode above with [eof]

 

2. i explode again with [br]

 

after that.. u will have

 

$aUpdate[1][0] ....

 

then like u said earlier.. u want to view only 5? and just play with the array ^^

Explode? I'm sorry, I'm really new to PHP (with only a little experience of html)

 

Is that basically adding it to an array then I just check if the array has contents, then do the print out stuff, if not, stop?

 

And if it is like that, how would I do it in my code? :P

<?php
/*pretended this taken from file.txt*/
$str="landavia[br/]2009-02-01[br/]I live in Jakarta and now work as programer[eof]
claite[br/]2009-02-05[br/]Someone help me during my work, i think no body perfect[eof]
claite[br/]2009-02-06[br/]My PC Crashed.. hope my data are return[eof]
claite[br/]2009-02-06[br/]wew...
i have my data back. Now lets bussy and study PHP[eof]";

$ar1=explode("[eof]",$str); //create into array
foreach($ar1 as $val)
{
$ar2=explode("[br/]",$val);
$aUpdate[]=$ar2;

}

echo "<pre>";
print_r($aUpdate);
echo "</pre>"; 

phpinfo(); ?>

try above script. btw.. what is your PHP version?

Haku, yes. That's been a bother very much. Since I want it to remain the sizes they are (and the code has definite table size) but they still change. I've tried changing the table values (increasing) to try to push it right...

 

now thinking about it. I think the addition of the scroll bar (since page exceeds browser height) it shoves everything right. How can I prevent this? I'm ok with some of the page being covered by the scroll bar...

 

Landavia, I'll try to use that. Thank you very much. It just seems pretty counter-intuitive to have all those variables and have it re-assigned so many times. Thanks again for all your help! I'm using

 

       $myFile = "news.txt";
       $news = fopen($myFile, 'r');
       while (!feof($news)){
       $title = fgets($news);

 

after I get more news, I'll add the for loop to 5. But this will work for the first... few days lol

 

EDIT: Btw, I'm using 5.2.8

If you're talking about the shift in the title/header, that has to do with the rest of the page moving. The problem is that the scroll bar appears, and that scrunches my page, but I don't understand why. Shouldn't a page remain the same size and have the browser just add a necessary bottom scroll bar?

Super apologies from the double post, but I want any mod that might have read the message above to also read this one (since edits don't appear as new posts)

 

I fixed the issue. Everything still shifts but I just made the sidebar a little thinner (the login area) so when the page shifts due to the exceeded page size, it doesn't overlap.

 

Thanks for all the help,

The shift is caused by the appearance of the scroll bar, as you surmised. I just wanted to confirm that that is what you were speaking of.

 

The simplest way to deal with this shift is to force the appearance of scrollbars on all pages. You can do that by adding this to your CSS:

 

html { overflow-y: scroll; }

 

You will of course have to code your page to work with the scroll bars.
