Thanks Jim for the feedback. That's what I needed to read. I especially agree with you on the red background, that it is too strong.

I'll continue to work on the logo so that it doesn't bounce around.

Hello Godbit family.

I've just redesigned my church website and I need for you all to give me some honest feedback. One thing that is bugging me is making the site pixel perfect for IE6. But I guess everyone has issues with this browser.  Here are the issues that remain.

All IE6 related issues:
1. The logo jumps to my desired position when hovered.
2. On the Times & Directions page you can't see any footer information.

If any of you could give feedback with some helpful tips to fix these problems, that would be great!


Thanks Godbit family.

Hello everyone. I have finished the design and currently coding a redesigned website.  This site url is

It looks good in Firefox and IE 7+. The problem is that not all of the transparent png images are truly displaying with the transparency effect.

What's happening is that some images with a transparent shadow border are recognized by a png fix I found while browsing for a solution.

I'm using a fix where you have to include a 1px by 1px transparent image named "clear.gif".

All the code for this fix is setup properly (I guess).

Could someone take a look at this issue to see what I'm doing wrong in IE6.


I'm in the middle of the coding phase of a website and I'm stuck. I've searched high and low and can't find a good open source app for online Newsletters or just sending updates to a collected list of email addresses.

I need something simple. The "sign up for updates" form to accept email has been coded and ready to go but I need to add the functionality to it.

Can anyone help?



I'm trying to find the animated gif image that usually sits in the upper right hand corner of website to toggle music on/off?

Anyone knows where I could find one to download or a tutorial to create one?

Thank you.


Hello everyone,

I have a select box that needs to display a selected value and have the ability to change other values from a db table.

Does this look right?

Here's my code so far:

<span><select name="minorGroup">
<?php include ("include/dsp_minorGroupUpdate.php"); ?>
</select><label>Minor Group</label></span>

==Include file (dsp_minorGroupUpdate.php)==
function getOptions('tblMinorGroup', 'ID', 'minorGroupName', 'minorGroup');{
    global $conn; //the connection handle
    $id = $_GET['ID'];
    $minorGroupName = $_GET['minorGroupName'];
    if (empty('minorGroupName')) 'minorGroupName' = 'ID';
    $result = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT ID as v, minorGroupName as d FROM tblMinorGroup") or die (odbc_error());
    if (odbc_error($conn) == FALSE) { die (odbc_errormsg($conn));}
    $i = empty($_POST['minorGroup']) ? NULL : trim ($_POST['minorGroup']);
    $return = '';
    while ($row = odbc_fetch_array($result)){
        $selected = $i == $row['v'] ? 'selected="selected"' : '';
        $return .= "\t<option value=\"$row[v]\" $selected>$row[d]</option>\r\n";
return $return;
echo getOptions('tblMinorGroup', 'ID', 'minorGroup', 'minorGroup');

I need of help. Thank you.

This is of immediate need, so if you would please contact me for the setup.


What would be the easiest way for a church to receive online donations? I understand it also depends on the estimated amount coming in. Whether it is $100/mo or $10,000/mo.

Should I setup the following:

ssl + merchant account
if so, what are the best options for each (ssl & merchant account)




sign up with a service to pay a monthly fee for the ssl (shared/individual) + merchant account.

It all works offline in my Homesite 5.5, firefox, and ie. Followed instructions exactly. Loaded everything successfully. Same results.
Able to view the background of the gallery but not the images.

At this point clueless.

Hello everyone,

Here recently, my work has increased quite a bit. It seems that some of the skills that I lack, need a little touching up. So in order to polish my skills and create a stronger portfolio I need a few people with a diverse background in web development.

These are the skills that I need assistance with:
Graphic Design ( for logos, newsletters, stationary{letterhead}, & site layouts ) right now tutorials online are not cutting it  for time's sake
Content Management Systems
Server scripting (coldfusion-preferably)
OOP [Object-Oriented Programming] ( demand has increased for this one for some reason )
E-Commerce ( a big definite )

Please help. I already have two well known developer/designers helping me out answering questions when they are not busy working on their projects. Need about two more I guess to help as well. The more, the merrier... <-- Possibly typo.

If you want to send me a private email please do or maybe we can chat over the phone to more detail.

Thank you in advance.

Just install on a win xp pc web server in a client's home. Clean install. User does not have MySQL, php, or Perl.


(3 replies, posted in Content Management)

First I would like to thank you all for the help recently with all of your comments and suggestions. I am leaps ahead of where I would normally be at this point.

I do have another dilemma. I have a contract out there now that I would like to complete but I need help asap.

The issue is with Movable Type.

I do have some experience creating blogs but I have not installed and setup a blog on a personal web server nor have I used Movable Type.

I am due back my client's facility tomorrow afternoon and I do not want to forfeit this contract. Please help.

Thank you in Advance.

Tell me what you think:

Please, don't be too harsh. Have any pointers, let me know. I'm open to constructive criticism.

Thank you.

From what I understand, wireframes are the functional layout of websites. The background of the site, without the images and the eye-popping flash. Purpose is for user to understand how the site will function.

Also I think is is software that one would download. Uncertain though.

What is the fastest way to learn cf?
Anyone know any good resource for hosting and how to do wireframes?

Thank you in advance.
