  • [QUOTE=joyenusi;35784789] Now, why doesn't it work ? I've been going at this all day and could really use someone else's insight.[/QUOTE] Since #wrapper already has background-color set you need to use !important like this: [code] .red_wrapper { background-color: #ff0000 !important; } [/code]

  • Ahh, cheers :) I have another quick question though, I have three buttons, one for red, one for green and one for blue, it seems adding the !important tag only allows me to change the colour once... Is there anyway to switch between colours ?

  • There is no need for !important here... just that ID takes precedence over classes, this here works: [url]http://jsfiddle.net/B2wuF/1/[/url]

  • I'm planning on making a Twitter client for Chrome, but I don't know HTML, CSS or Javascript, which makes it a big challenge. Since Chrome's extensions are HTML pages, basically, I'm looking into making a basic HTML twitter reader / poster and styling it with CSS to make it look like my [URL="http://i.minus.com/imrBVqAw2ZrSO.png"]mockup[/URL]. Does anyone have experience with this stuff? How should I approach this?

  • Why use jQuery when you're only working with Chrome? Either use plain JavaScript or Zepto.js which is a jQuery clone for modern browsers only.

Grab that URL with an Ajax request and then parse it with JSON.parse(), then it's as simple as data[1].user.name + ': ' + data[1].text to display a tweet.

Most browser already put it in readable form for JS.

  • Avatar of Inacio
  • well i was planning on learning the fundamentals for starters even that seems to be too hard
  • Avatar of TheDecryptor
  • It's not too hard, but it's also not really easy :v: Try making a simple timeline viewer first, then move onto a full blown client. You'd only really need a small amount of JS for that (Pull down the data via XMLHTTPRequest and parse it via JSON or such.)

  • How would I go about populating a drop-down list using values from a database as well as values that I enter myself? This is the edit Delivery Address page where the fields are already filled in using the values from the database based on the customer who is logged in. [CODE] <select name="thirdCountryDropdown"> <!-- drop down box to ask for customers country --> <option value="<?= isset($_SESSION['country']) ? $_SESSION['country'] : '' ?>"></option> </select> [/CODE] I want to be able to show the country from the database first in the list and then all other possible countries after it. In the table the country of the customer is United Kingdom. However if I use the example above there is nothing in the drop-down list.

Ex: [code] $sql = "SELECT * FROM `name` WHERE ID='$id'"; $query = mysql_query($sql); while($result = mysql_fetch_array($query) { echo "<option value='". $result['countryname']. "'>". $result['countryname']."</option>"; } [/code] [editline]3rd May 2012[/editline] Basically you left the text value at "", so that's why it didn't show. Edit: if you look at the source of the page, it should have an <option> with a value in the <select> you created. Edit 2 (quite late, i know): For more security, scroll a few posts down.

  • Uh I need a little help with a problem of mine I'm having - I need to make one very long image scroll across the screen and loop. The problem is for a countryside + clouds moving gradually. There's a few possible solutions I've found but none work well on IE which is a must =/

  • Hey fellas, I never post in here, but I need some help. I need to make a Web Photo Gallery using Adobe Bridge and incorporate it into a website. However, my schools computers are shite, there are bugs in the system, the program won't run correctly in some instances (buttons don't work, other buttons are actually gone), and I lack the program itself on my computer. Also note that there are no trials available (as far as I know), which sucks. Is there some way that I can do this without Bridge? I've seen that you can do it with photoshop, but all of the instructions I've found were very minimal. It would be even better if there was pre-made gallerys that I could just use, but that's been highly wishful. I've checked. Nobody? :C
