Disable Images

Lightbox that works on mobile?

I'm looking for a jquery lightbox that also works well on mobile. So far I've found a lot that won't even load the images on iOS. Others have controls that are tiny or only visible on hover which makes it a bit useless/confusing for mobile users.

Just need a simple lightbox that looks good. Seems like there would be a ton of these, but I've had no luck.

T-shirt printers in EU?

Hi, I need someone to print me a small run of shirts, about 40 or 50 total. It's for a band. Need them shipped to Germany. I'm hoping to find a digital screen printer as the design will be a full colour photo.

Suggestions?

CSS Help. (Easy?)

I know html and css pretty well, I think. But I'm trying to do something that isn't working. I thought it would work easily, but it's not.

I have a navigation div where I want the buttons to be aligned to the right. Easy enough with text-align:right applied to #nav a. Then I figured I could apply background-color to the #nav a, and the background-color would only extend the length of the navigation text. But, instead the background colour is extending all the way across the width of the nav.

Super simple code:
<div id="nav">
<a href="#">Nav Option #1</a>
<a href="#">Nav Option Number 2</a>
<a href="#">Nav Option The Third</a>
<a href="#">Nav Option Four</a>
</div>

and the CSS is:
#nav {
width: 160px;
background-color: #428698;
position: absolute;
top:235px;
bottom:0px;
font-size:15px;
font-weight: 700;
font-style:italic;
text-transform: uppercase;
padding-left: 8px;
}
#nav a {
background-color: #53b1ff;
padding-top: 10px;
padding-bottom: 10px;
padding-right: 14px;
margin-bottom: 2px;
letter-spacing: 0.1em;
text-align: right;
color: #FFF;
text-decoration: none;
}

What I'm getting is this:

But what I WANT is this:

I tried using <ul> and <li> tags instead of just the straight <a>, but got the same problem. Help?

Afraid of Google

“We are afraid of Google,” Mr. Döpfner wrote. “I must say this so clearly and honestly since scarcely one of my colleagues dares to do this publicly. And as the biggest of the small fry, we must perhaps be the first to speak plainly in this debate.”

Shirts in Amsterdam

Looking for someone to do a short run of shirts in Amsterdam. Probably looking to do a digital screen print of a colour photo, and maybe a traditional screen print. Small number of shirts, less than 50.

Anyone know anyone?

Adobe Flash Player

I updated Flash Player yesterday and now I'm getting a message in Safari... "Plug-In Failure". I tried updating again, and checked my Safari prefs to make sure plug-ins are on.

I'm cut off from Youtube! Noooo! HTML5 Player, Why Have You Forsaken Me?

OSX 10.9.2 Mavericks
Safari 7.0.3

Anyone else having this problem?

VPN vs VPN

After hearing about hacking of public wifi networks by Canada's spy agency at an airport, as well as regular ol' hacking on public networks all over the world, I've been considering paying for a VPN.

http://lifehacker.com/5940565/wh…

I don't care about getting around content blocks. TV is boring, anyway. I just want to keep my activities private. I travel a lot, and leaving Canada means paying a LOT for international mobile data, or relying on public wifi. I'd rather just get a VPN and use public wifi.

So, what do you guys use?

Site Category, blocked by

A friend of mine emailed me to tell me my website is blocked at her work. She works for the government and they have site-blockers running all the time. She said "the browser thinks it's a gambling site".

There's nothing on the site that even remotely suggests it would have something to do with gambling.

What can I do?

Serious Questine

Idea:

Is it possible/difficult to make a Chrome extension that would allow users to mark QBN threads as "Not Design Related" and then they would be instantly hidden from anyone who was using the plugin? It gets permanently hidden once three people mark the thread, which would help prevent people from sabotaging the project. Although, I'd be happy to risk losing a few good threads if it eliminated all the bullshit on here.

We could be our own moderators. The rest of us could stop being distracted by the useless threads.

Unfortunately I have no idea how to do this. Maybe I'll just look for somewhere else to hang. Easier.

Questine about Chrome

I have this weird thing happening on the homepage for my site.

If I scroll up with my mouse (I shouldn't be able to scroll up, it's the top of the page) the page sort of disconnects from the browser and I see this grey background. I can move the site left, right, up or down with my scroll ball. But, it's not actually scrolling, it's moving the page.

It's hard to explain. Imagine it's like the whole page is a layer in photoshop that I'm moving with the move tool, and the grey area is like the transparency behind.

http://i48.tinypic.com/11jai5g.png

There's no grey background set on my site. It's just white. It's super simple code. Just a two-column responsive layout. A bit of text and some images inside. No floats. Nothing remotely fancy. At first I thought it had something to do with Positioning in CSS. But, all the other pages on the site are using the same structure and css file and they don't have this problem.

Anyone ever run into this? Know how to solve it? I tried Googling around, but I'm having a tough time describing it, as you can plainly see.

Simple password questine

I'm trying to get make a page that has a simple password protection. My original plan was to use cpanel, but then I need a login/password combination for the directory.

This isn't a secure password, it will be given to a hundred people or so. We just don't want to give the public access. So really, what I want is just a single form field, and when you type in the correct keyword, you get access to the page.

This seems really simple, but I've been googling around for it, and unfortunately every article I find has to do with proper passwords, strength, security, verification, etc.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Simple MP3 embed.

Hey all,

I'm looking for the most simple way to embed an MP3 into a webpage so it will play automatically in all browsers, without the use of flash.

I've tried googling around but everything I've found is how to do it with flash or with some sort of player. I don't want a player, I just want it to play without any controls or anything like that.

It's not for anything public, it's just a joke page for a friend.

France - Paris / Cannes

I'm going to the MIDEM conference in Cannes this weekend and since I've never been to Europe I figure the least I can do is make my way to Paris for a week.

I've done a bit of research, but I figure some of you Europeans will have a better idea of the best of Paris.

Any suggestions for things to do? Must see stuff? Galleries, museums, architecture, history, restaurants... if you could only do one thing, what would it be?

Cutting Mat Mouse Pad.

Today I went to buy a cutting mat to use as a mouse pad. I've got a swanky glass desk and my magic mouse doesn't work with out a pad.

Every mousepad I've used slides around, and I don't want to tape it down. Soooo I figured a cutting mat would do the trick, look cool and work for cutting. I think someone here suggested it to me. I found a nice Alvin self-healing mat at my local art supply store.

Cool story, right, bro?

But, the cutting mat had a sticker on the package that said "Warning: this item contains materials that are known by the State of California to cause cancer, reproductive disorders and reproductive complications. Please wash hands after each use."

I thought I'd share, since I know some of you are using cutting mats as mouse pads.
