Hi! I got into someone admnistration panel by accident! Played with a minor thing to show that i got in and sent a email to the webmaster to fix his site cause it wasnt hacker safe (Which I am not a hacker). anyways he asked me to fix his website and so I did! I rebuilt it from scratch using my own designs and PHP / MySQL! anyways this is how it turned out www.cmxva.com. But that is not how it always was. I built this from scratch, I left the old design on the website just for a backup. And now to show you guys! www.cmxva.com/backup. I have only been working on the site the last 3 days and I finally got it uploaded today. There is still alot of work left to be done, but hopefully it will be done within the next 12-15 hours! so ya! here it is! Enjoy and thank you

I hope the second one is your (/backup) I think it is great. You should add some CSS rollovers in your navigation, anytime I visit a site, for some reason I like to see how their navigation works.

 

I also found this when I scrolled down on the first page

Update. No the backup that I did not make was created by steve! The template that I used was made by http://www.templatemonster.com/website-templates/11712.html?&templ=11712&scr_type=1&hide_flash=1&tab=32 But that is no matter. I still realize it was wrong. But once again I seriously forgot. It took me 20 mins to find the template I used

If that is the website you want critiqued, I think you should work a little bit more on it before you post it.

Well its not that bad. There are a few "big" mistakes that degrade the site a lot...

 

1) Center it

2) I don't like how the logo is being cut off, why not uncut it or use a nice fading gradient ?

3) A bit too hard on the eyes, you can tone it down, but it'll manage

4) make the hover links "black" - isn't black also one of your color themes?

5) don't like the login "enter" button - use the standard one or make it more flashy

6) Using ff and the Lost password is cut so lost is one line and password on another. Looks really messed up. Its like there is "password?" and I was thinking, huh?

 

 

Overall its not that bad. But some of the things I said are major points that degrade the site tremondously... :P

Really? It looks great in my browser but thats what I designed it in! I was wondering what Browser do you have? What is your resolution set to? Cause it is centered in IE7 And the text isnt cut off in it iether so idk

You do not design it for YOUR browser, you design it for all browsers. You have to use Firefox 1.5 version to see the effects. FF is the most complaint browser so you do testing on it and then fix it to make it work in IE, not the other way around.

lol it nto the most comlpiant... its the most PICKY -,-.

 

FF always wants thigns perfect.

 

I suggest you run w3c.org html validator on yoru site, and if it snot 100% 0 errors then chances are it sonly gonna work in ONE BROWSER.

 

 

FF IS PICKY SHIT!  so is opera, and firebird, and netscape, mozilla is fricken picky. -,-.

No FF, is the most compliant. If being complaint measns picky then so be. A programmers need to think smart to get it right. After about 2 months of hardcore css/html writing, I can code any page without any problems on almost all borwsers. IE sometimes brings up an error, but its very rare.

 

Example: Do not create three columns by floats!! Stupid!! - instead use absolute positioning. Works great!

Absolute positioning? Eh, floats have always done the trick for me. Honestly, I never use absolute positioning in a design; floats do the trick just fine. They're just a bit trickier to use on occasion.

absolutes are a no-no.

 

especaailly on comercial sites.

 

DONT USE THEM.

 

what happens if you position the thrid column at say... 912 l ?  if you have 800x600 you cant se it, if you have 640x480 you cant see it... if you have 320x240 you cant see it, if you have 1024.768 its cut off.

 

Absolute does not wrap to the browser, so I prefer to use releative positioning to the users right hand side of the screen :D  I used a js "user screen resolution" script to find this pixel out (normally 691 for 800x600 users)

Do you seriously think I use absolute positioning without nesting them in a parent div that is either relatively positioned or static with some other attributes?

 

Did you really think I was stupid enogh to do that? Go to this page on my site: beastit.com/index2 and you will find that on the bottom left under "VS" the red rectangles are absolutely positioned columns.

Um... no. If your website is valid, browsers will render it fine.

 

If you want to see picky, try making code in.. pretty much any non-scripting language. Like C, C++, VB, Assembler, etc. Wanna know what happens if you make an error in them? That's right, the whole thing falls over and dies. Even if it's just one little typo.

 

Calling HTML a picky language is absolutely ridiculous. It is like, the most lax, amature, tag-soup-ridden language EVER.

 

You can make so many errors in it that it shouldn't be possible for anything to interpret, and most browsers still will.

 

Screwing up HTML so bad that browsers won't even render it in tag-soup code is NOT an easy thing to do..

I program in both PHP (compiled) and c++.  I also started asp.net and noticed it was EVEN pickier than php (if possible).

 

Crap, asp.net is as picky as binary.  One extra space and it does barrel roles before it dies:

 

My last error message in asp.net:

Server Error in '/' Application.
An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

SQLExpress database file auto-creation error:

The connection string specifies a local Sql Server Express instance using a database location within the applications App_Data directory. The provider attempted to automatically create the application services database because the provider determined that the database does not exist. The following configuration requirements are necessary to successfully check for existence of the application services database and automatically create the application services database:

   1. If the applications App_Data directory does not already exist, the web server account must have read and write access to the applications directory. This is necessary because the web server account will automatically create the App_Data directory if it does not already exist.
   2. If the applications App_Data directory already exists, the web server account only requires read and write access to the applications App_Data directory. This is necessary because the web server account will attempt to verify that the Sql Server Express database already exists within the applications App_Data directory. Revoking read access on the App_Data directory from the web server account will prevent the provider from correctly determining if the Sql Server Express database already exists. This will cause an error when the provider attempts to create a duplicate of an already existing database. Write access is required because the web server accounts credentials are used when creating the new database.
   3. Sql Server Express must be installed on the machine.
   4. The process identity for the web server account must have a local user profile. See the readme document for details on how to create a local user profile for both machine and domain accounts.

and you know what?  I had a space before the mssql connect string:

 

asp:mssql

 

the space screwed it all up.
