    Question A little Guidance...

    Hi everyone.

    I'd like to make a couple of changes to my site but i'm not entirely sure how to do them. Any guidance would be appreciated.

    1) To have a home page that shows the last 5 or so sigs made.
    2) To be able to have a second line of text that is optional (e.g tag line). The user uses a tick box to say whether they want it or not it, and places the text a few pixels below the other text they put in.
    3) To open up a "save image as" download box when they create there sig. Either automatically or by clicking a link
    4) Finally if anyone knows of any good ttf fonts that i can download to use for my site which have all symbols in (e.g. !"£$%^&)*?>., etc...) also it would be preferable if they had a interesting style, not just times new roman.

    Cheers.

    This has AJAX (Javascripting and PHP) written all over it.

    Research it from that angle.

    I don't know much about "gaming" and not sure what a "sig" is ...

    But the mechanics of it sound like AJAX. Perhaps you could pose the
    questions for items 1,2,3 in the Javascripting (AJAX and design) section
    of the forum.

    I'm not sure why Ajax is mentioned in this discussion. I suggest going with a basic php/mysql page. You can use a query like this to grab the latest sigs made:

    SELECT * FROM sigs ORDER BY date DESC LIMIT 5;

    As far as number two is concerned, some simple DOM Scripting will help you there.

    onclick="document.getElementById('line-two').style.display='none';"

    Here are some good free font sites:

    If you need a little more help, I'm available as a Website designer in San Antonio
