InDesign Question Aug 14, 12, 12:06 p.m.
Quick question about text wrapping. I've got an image and a bit of text on a layer that the text is wrapping around. Great.
I've created another layer above this one to overlay some more text that I do not want to be wrapped. When, I check this layer's wrapping properties, it's clearly marked as "no text wrap", but whenever I move it over the other layer, I'm getting the red "x" because it's trying to wrap.
Camera Tripod Suggestions May 11, 12, 12:33 p.m.
My current camera tripod is garbage and I'm tired of dealing with it.
I'm looking for something more middle of the road price wise. I'm not going out on location anywhere and I don't need mega precise leveling or anything. I just want something sturdy that's not a piece of shit.
IE only stylesheets Aug 31, 10, 9:38 a.m.
So, after getting tired of trying to make pages look correct with one sheet, I've succumb to creating an IE only stylesheet.
I'm curious how others that are doing it this way handle both style sheets. Do you have both open at the same time and just duplicate as you go? Or, do you do most of the work and go back and tweak the IE sheet?
Assasin's Creed 2 Nov 17, 09, 10:26 a.m.
Picking up my copy after work today. I can't wait. Anyone else?
Html by hand or GUI? Nov 12, 09, 11:12 a.m.
I've coded(or wrote markup to be exact) everything by hand since I started. Back in 2000 or so I experimented with Dreamweaver's "design" view, but dropped it pretty quickly. I assume most people write by hand, but I suppose I could be wrong.
So, what do you do?
Design related feeds? Nov 10, 09, 5:32 a.m.
What are some feeds people here subscribe too? I subscribe to a few, but I'm looking for more along the lines of smashing magazine.
php people...frameworks? Oct 26, 09, 7:25 p.m.
Are any of the PHP people out here using frameworks like CakePHP or CodeIgniter?
I was evaluating CMS's and all of them seemed real bloated or really lacking in features. So, I set out to make my own system...sorta. Which led me to frameworks.
I've been experimenting with a framework built off of CodeIgniter called Kohana. So far, it seems like what the hell took me so long to use something like this.
However, since you end up using the libraries built in to these frameworks, you don't use actual php functions and what not as much. So, for those that do use these, does the speed of frameworks outweigh and php rust that may build up by not using php functions and more procedural code?
Illustrator Line question? Oct 23, 09, 12:02 p.m.
Is there a way to control the starting and ending thickness of a line? Like it starts at 1pt and ends at 5?
I've been making a bunch of different brushes to give my lines different thicknesses and such, but it's getting quite tiring.
Ideally, multiple points where thickness could be altered would be ideal.
CMS Libraries? Oct 19, 09, 10:58 a.m.
So, I've decided to write my own CMS of sorts for future projects. I'm looking for a php library that has basic entry forms and cms modules (like editable regions, user login, etc), but without actually being assembled into a CMS that's ready to launch right away. If that makes sense.
I've been auditioning CMS's and most of them are aimed at people with next to zero knowledge of web design. The one's aimed at designers are still to structured for my taste don't cater to people who know php well.
snews is probably my favorite of them all, but it still lacks some flexibility. I suppose I could pick out what I want and start from scratch. But, a library would be desirable...if it exsists.
HTML 5 wtf? Jul 7, 09, 7:57 a.m.
I've been reading up on the HTML 5 spec and at this point I think it makes things more confusing. Aside from the video and audio tags which are interesting and seem to be going in the right direction.
Other than purely search engine food, the <header>, <nav>, <footer>, <article>, <section>, <aside>, etc tags seem to make things more confusing. More than likely, you will be adding additional classes or id's to style these elements making the markup more verbose.
For instance, sites often have a top and side navigation or navigation options in the footer. That's 3 seperate navigations which a sole <nav> tag couldn't cover and would need a class or id. How exactly is <section class="foo"> better than <div class="foo"> for "generic" sections? Perhaps while organizing a stylesheet, but it seems like a step backwards to me. div's work well. I name it what I want, how I want.
Am I missing something?
SQL question Jun 25, 09, 9:13 a.m.
I'm trying to receive 2 results from 1 field in 1 statement. Here's my code:
SELECT categories_name FROM categories_description WHERE categories_id IN (21,30)
However, it's only retrieving one record. I don't use the "IN" statement that much, but from what I've read I'm doing it right. 21 & 30 are integers in the db so they don't need quotes. Even if I manually put numbers in other than those two it always returns the first only.
I'm using mysql_query to run the query and mysql_fetch_array to get an array and print_r to view the array(or lack there of).
Large Prints/Paintings Jun 11, 09, 5:32 a.m.
I bought a new house recently, painted and now I'm ready to buy some artwork. I'm wondering if anyone knows of good places online to buy prints or paintings. I looked through 100 pages on ebay and barely found a handful that were considerable. I'd like it to be about 60-72 inches wide and could be split into a few canvases. I'm looking for modern looking pieces with clean shapes and what not. Apparently ebay only accepts paintings with dead trees. Because 80% of the art on there has dead trees in it.
monitor profiles & calibration May 7, 09, 8:05 a.m.
I have my monitor calibrated for print work but, I do both print and web. When I look at other people's monitors around the office (non designers), their monitors are much brighter then mine. Some people's are so conrasted, the colors look quite different on my monitor than theirs.
I'm on a pc and have been bringing in my macbook to test sites and it's color is brighter as well. However, I've never calibrated it.
Basically, I'd like to run 2 profiles. One for print and one for web. The profile I run for print is quite accurate and I'm happy with it. I'm just not sure what to use as a standard or reference for creating a web profile. 99% of people plug in their monitors and never adjust anything. But with so many variations out there, well, it's tough to know what to do.
Big search box sites May 7, 09, 11:30 a.m.
I'm looking for sites with big search boxes where the font is large inside the box as well.
I'm working on one, but apparently I'm doing something wrong because the the input box is much larger on a mac for some reason using both Safari and Firefox.
