Re: client updating website

I had one client who took on updating her own site after I created it, within two she called me back, it was late at night and she was pulling her hair out, she had spent 4 hours trying update 3 pages. We settled on two updates (no site modifications, no new pages, no image window resizing) a month ...

Re: Large amount of text

I had to cut and paste from pdf and .doc so I first sent it to notepad, cleaned it up then to one big text box, then copied the one text box 8 times and deleted paragraphs as needed, so text1 had paragraph 1, text2 had paragraph 2 so on. Do you have a favorite way to display the TOS (terms of servic...

Re: Large amount of text

Perfect! Thanks.

So squeeze out all the blank lines, split paras into individual text boxes. Will try and hopefully it should fix the issue. The single text box was enticing; a quick cut and paste :D

Document Type property

I see 3 document type properties:
  1. HTML 4.0 Transitional
  2. XHTML 1.0 Transitional
  3. HTML 5.0
For some odd reason a number of my pages have html 4.0 Transitional and others of HTML 5.0. Should I change them all to be one and the same? Any issues I should be concerned about?

Large amount of text

Greetings,

I have at least 6 paragraphs of text in a textbox. I format them into paragraphs but when rendered in the browser they loose the formatting and are all jumbled up. Should they be broken up into multiple text boxes (one per paragraph)?

Re: Form Spam

Thanks for all the suggestions. I had a discussion with my ISP. Fortunately and I mean big time fortunately, there was an experienced guy manning the phones, and he asked me to make some changes. 1 - Have a custom script for submission - he had me add an onclick check to the submit button overriding...

Re: When to use SSL?

There is also a move underway by browsers and search engines to increase the level of warnings against sites that are not ssl protected. That's why I decided to move early. It's just another annoying thing you don't need when people are looking or trying to get to your site. The other thing is sear...

Re: When to use SSL?

you do not always need ssl even if you have an ecommerce website; of course, in the case you delegate the payment process to an external processor like PayPal (because they manage all the stuff) if you store sensitive (or financial) information about your customers (like a bank does) you should hav...

I would like to condition the menu option for 'Login' to only display if the user is not logged in. Once the user logs in then the menu optio...

Re: Form Spam

I think any solution widely used will be widely vulnerable. A custom solution will probably work better as fewer people will focus on breaking it. But does it still have the same level of confidence when talking to clients. They all want that shiny google captcha. I am thinking of a combination, inv...

Re: Form Spam

My next step is to add validation for the Message field on the server and capturing the captcha response. Currently the spammers are leaving the message field blank, bypassing the client validation.
