The Webmaster Lab Resources

Over the next coupld of days I’m going to start putting together some stickies to go at the top relating to webhosting.

In addition I’d like to start monthly tutorials by me or members on how to make money online and or how to improve the amount of money you make.

That was written by Thomor a while back, now unless I’m blind, 404 stickies not found, and I’m fairly certain no tutorials were ever posted.

i have been able to get my head around html/css/javascript/xml

… but PHP just fucking owns me. I can not get my head around it. I’ve read books, gone through W3 tutorials, everything. I know the premise behind it and how it works, i just cant seem to code a working application with it.

Anyone have better learning resources?

Might help to pick up a beginners programming book. Something not php specific.

That was gonna be my suggestion.

PHP-Nuke…Word Press… Pre-made templates question.

My boss came to me asking me if I could create a website for his business. He just wants something simple that people can go to and read about the store and see what we carry and read a little about us.

He’d like to be able to go on easily and update it like a news area to list sales and a way to reach out to people reading the website.

He’s not very good with computers so going in and coding something to make a new news post is out of the question. I was thinking something like PHP-Nuke but I’m pretty sure that’s out of date.

JavaScript loading XML into an array.. halp.

I have an XML file:

<item>An item.</item>
<item>Another item.</item>

And this script:

function readXML()
         // code for IE
         if (window.ActiveXObject)
                alert ('IE')
                           var xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.3.0");
                           xmlDoc.async = false;
         // code for Mozilla, etc.
         else if (document.implementation && document.implementation.createDocument)
                alert ('FF')
                                var xmlDoc = document.implementation.createDocument("", "", null);
                                xmlDoc.async = false;
              alert('Your browser cannot handle this script');
              var items = xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName('item');
              for (i=0; i < items.length; i++)
                        itemsarray[i] = items[i].firstChild.nodeValue;

What am I doing wrong?

I’m new at web design, and wondered if you guys knew some pointers….

coming from the main forum, so I don’t know how much i’ll get flamed for being a n00b here

anyways: I’ve got this flash site (a template site from templatemonster or whatever). I CANNOT figure out how to edit stuff (images, text, etc) in any program. Tried Adobe Flash….. I see everything, but have no idea how to change anything

Flash templates can be complicated to edit. If you are dead on using it, I would recommend paying a member here to do it for you. Definitely not worth your troubles
