  1. I have the great scoopy, designer of the new layout for this board, helping with the site. Thanks again scoopy! :D
  2. I just read about that myself last night! But for some reason css doesn't like me. I insert the code exactly the way I'm supposed to and it still won't work half the time.
  3. Thanks anon but I'm starting over so . . . :) Gowator now that I'm doing the scripting the main page really is pretty easy. People just like to make things really complicated it seems!
  4. Thanks for the replies. I was afraid of that Gowator. But it's not just the home page it's all of the pages that have problems. It's going to be a lot of work to redo them. Anon that's the way the text displays for me. It's because they put the <br> tags in the paragraph and the bottom part is fixed so it overlays. What a mess! Opinion on changing the looks of the page. I like the live oak for the background on the home page but I'm not thrilled with the font colors. Suggestions for changes, additions, etc?
  5. I have to fix several errors on this web page (edit link removed) The person who designed this page used a Windows program called Cool Page. There are several problems. The main one being that they put <br> in the paragraphs which besides being really stupid causes the text to display incorrectly. That won't be hard to fix. The mouseover for the ribbon isn't working and they used a different kind of coding than what I use for mouseovers so I'll have to work on that one. I'd like to get rid of the shockwave flash and I have free license to do what I want. For what little it adds to the page I think it's not worth the problems it can create. One thing I don't understand though, being the beginner that I am, is why the background image remains fixed in Opera but in Mozilla it tiles. Any ideas how to fix that? I'm really tempted to just start all over again and do it differently. WDYT? Also, anything else anybody sees that should be fixed? Interesting note - I'm using the barter system on this one. I get x number of free horseshoings for my horse for the work I do. :lol:
  6. Good idea scoopy. Thanks! Didn't know you were a Spurs fan. :wink:
  7. Thanks sas! I've been doing a lot of googling but missed that site. I've bookmarked it for later when I have some time to read it! I'm supposed to be working right now. :lol:
  8. I'm trying to increase the visibility of a web site. I've read so much conflicting information regarding meta tags that I'm not sure what to believe. I went ahead and added them anyway and now I'm reading about using a Robot Meta Tag. Any advice? I've got to find someway for the search engines to find this site. Thanks!
  9. The other mods didn't like the Graphics title so I changed it to their suggestion. Hope everyone likes it! :)

    media Keys

    Hi, I hope these help. http://mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?p=15618 http://mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?t=2...ight=multimedia
  11. While doing a search for something else I came across this post http://mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?p=51089#51089 Sorry for not answering before. I try to read all the posts but sometimes it's too many to keep up with. If you're still interested the reason I was disappointed with Kapital is because of it's limited features and the bugs! I only purchased it because of a promise to come out with a free upgrade version in February 2003 (ha!). Still waiting on that one. By limited features I mean that there is no function for exporting files, printing the register or even copying it. The biggest problem though is the reconcile feature. It doesn't pick up the ending balance from the previous statement, it picks up the actual ending balance in your register. So in order to balance I would have to create a false entry to make up the difference and then delete it when it was through. Not fun! I was so disappointed that I emailed Kapital and asked for a refund because of their failure to live up to their promise. They never even responded. :roll: About two years ago I went looking for some good Linux financial software. I tried CBB (Check Book Balancer), a very limited, outdated program, Money Dance which from the new home page has obviously come a long way and finally went back to GnuCash. I've gotten used to it but I think double-entry bookkeeping is overkill. That's probably more than you wanted to know. :wink:
  12. That's weird. I can access it with no problem. I'll pm anon and let him know. Anyone else having trouble with the download site?
  13. RC1 is. Just check the downloads link. :wink:
  14. Hmmm, may have to create a new partition and check it out. I really hope a lot of the bugs from 9.1 are gone. I'm tired of finding work arounds!
  15. You forgot "make clean." :wink: Anyway here's a very good tutorial that explains each step of the installation. http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/softinstall.html
  16. Like I said in the other thread I was Linux only until I got this job. I have to have Windoze to run the software I need. There is no Linux equivalent, I spent a month trying to get it working with Wine and even contacted Netraverse about using Win4Lin (okay it's still using Windoze). The program won't even run with Win4Lin because it uses a HASP. I've tried everything and short of quitting my job (I NEED the money) I need my Windoze HD.
  17. Update - anon has requested that MDK change the url from their board to the .org site instead of the .com.
  18. I work out of my house so I have to have a separate HD for Windoze. Before I got this job though I was running Linux only for about a year.
  19. Check this out http://www.mandrakelinux.com/en/ Well we're still here- Mandrake Was anyone aware that the link they have takes them to this page? http://www.mandrakeusers.com/ Shouldn't we have a redirect here? Just thinking!
  20. I think what they tried to do was pull us into their Club and even offered to make certain users automatic members. Which of course we turned down. :wink:
  21. I've been using bluefish although I'm still doing all my coding manually. As far as colors that can be tricky. Before I started coding myself I used Front Page (awful program btw) and I was surprised that when I used anything but IE it didn't look the same, especially the colors. Here's a link that might interest you http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/00/37/....html?tw=design It's rather lengthy but it helps to understand the differences with different browsers. If you check out the browser safe colors your color isn't listed in it. HTH

    New Icons

    When you install an icon theme you leave it in the tar.gz format. You don't do anything to it. :wink:
  23. Here's a link to one of the discussions. http://www.mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?p=32332 To see what is starting up automatically go to the Mandrake Control Center, System, DrakXServices. HTH
  24. There's nothing wrong with my eyes!!! :P :P :P After all I couldn't be an admin with bad eyesight. I might acidentally check the wrong box or something and who knows what could happen?
  25. In anything other than 600X800 resolution it's hard to read cause the print is so tiny. And there's nothing wrong with my eyes. :P But I like the content.
