View Full Version : Several Items

Several questions here:

1) Could you please check out my site here: http://www.geocities.com/fulltiltentertainment/ Be for warned, the search and polls section doesn't work because Geocities doesn't allow method=post .

2) I need some help building a news board. I have been using a forum, but it is too much trouble. Once again, remember Geocities doesn't allow method=post .

3) I can't seem to get any Time/Date codes to work. I have used several from DynamicDrive.com, but they seem to be broken. Does anyone have a working code?

4) I would like to know if anyone knows a good place to build graphics instead of FlamingText.com. They're great for logos, but not much else.

That seems to be it.

Okay, so nice site overall. Layout was pretty clean and not hard to read or anything. Though, I did notice one thing. Once I finally got a look at your code (it didn't take to long to get aroung the no-left-click thingy) I noticed that on your menu, you use two greater than signs (>>) next to each of your links. This looks nice and can be done safely, but your method is a little risky. You just typed in the >> symbols. This could be a probelm in older browsers cause they may think there is an html tag there or something. So in the future just use the entity > .

The only other question I can answer is your date and time question. Try http://www.javascriptkit.com . It has a lot of date and time codes. Though, I am not sure if they are exactly what you are looking for. Good luck!!

Nice site! For a forum, may I suggest EZboard (http://www.ezboard.com/)...it's free, and they host the board on their own server. A great place to build graphics is 3d Text Maker (http://www.3dtextmaker.com/) or GIF Works (http://www.gifworks.com/). Here is a LINK (http://wsabstract.com/script/cutindex1.shtml) to a bunch of clock/date scripts, just follow the instructions carefully and you should have no problem with it. Hope this all helps! If not, feel free to contact me through IM or E-mail.

OK! For starters change hosts because geocities obviously can't handle your growing development needs. I suggest http://www.brinkster.com ...

Developing your "Newsboard" as you call would be extremely easy in asp. http://www.hotscripts.com they have lots of scripts in different categories that would work.

if you decide to .asp here. http://www.w3schools.com

making a time display is easy in javascript, here is a simple one I used to use on my site (input version):
<script type="text/javascript">
var timer = null

function stop()

function start()
var time = new Date()
var hours = time.getHours()
var minutes = time.getMinutes()
minutes=((minutes < 10) ? "0" : "") + minutes
var seconds = time.getSeconds()
seconds=((seconds < 10) ? "0" : "") + seconds
var clock = hours + ":" + minutes + ":" + seconds
document.forms[0].display.value = clock
timer = setTimeout("start()",1000)
<body style="border-style:solid;border-color:ffffff" onload="start()" onunload="stop()">
<input type="text" name="display" size="20">

and for the date

<script type="text/javascript">
var d = new Date()
document.write(d.getMonth() + 1)

As for your graphics, I could make some for you if you put a link to my site on yours.

I really appreciate it. This has been the best site I have ever built. I am looking into a new host. I also have a clock working now. Thanks... :)
