Hi php gurus!
I'm asking for help and lots of it (please). I'm creating my photoblog, and want it to be pretty minimalist looking. I'm very new to programmign and php and the likes of css etc.
With a bit of help from people on here and from reading I've managed to get pixelpost all installed on my server, and I've started modifying the 'minimal' template to suit my design.
So far my site is looking like this. What I am wanting however is a few more things and for the hell of me am I having headaches (literally) working these things out!
1. I want the button at the bottom left to open a popup window with the details about the image and perhaps (not really important) for the user to comment?
2. I'd like my buttons on the left hand side to work the next and previous function.
3. I'd like an index button somewhere to show all images as thumbnails.
4. I'd also love my buttons on the side to sit flush with the image size in IE and Firefox (I did manage to get this done at one point, but then broke it! lol)
I know there are HEAPS of things I have asked for there, but I really am not that sure with any of this stuff. Maybe if people can help me in little bunches of their expertise I can get it completed and learn at the same time!
Also I'd imagine that my coding (or whatever) is probably very messy and wrong in places so please go easy on me. If people need more info from me then just drop me a line or a message and I'll do my best!
Thanks very much to everyone and aoplogies if I am asking too much.
well, as I always recommend:
install the webdeveloper-extension
open your page in Firefox
click on tools / validate HTML
repair the code
click on tools / validate CSS
repair the css
that is a lot of help
you can edit the CSS directly in your browser clickin gon CSS / edit CSS and control the result
if the result is ok for you, validate again!
than save the CSS and continue finetuning ...
But my first look at your site gave me the impression that your design is too minimalistic... please keep in mind that not everybody has eagle-eyes and / or a magnifiyer in front of the monitor
please keep in mind that people expect links to look like links (a text with a line below it..) and not a small something somewhere...
please read our docs and keep in mind that the page must be in UTF-8 code!!!!!
you must fix this before you can start to validate your page at all...
(I am so tired of repeating this all the time.....)
I think this is a lot of "homework" for you, after that you can come back
because in my opinion there is no sense to start finetuning some design on faulty code
