  • I'm sure i'm like...overly proud of this but i started learning rails, following along the tutorial, quite honestly i'm just in shock that i had no problems at all, and it's all working correctly! [IMG]http://i46.tinypic.com/19t40j.png[/IMG] hoping to find some rock solid tutorials/books/videos to help me learn every single thing i can about rails [IMG]http://i50.tinypic.com/m50k2.png[/IMG] granted, i know this is very basic but..i'm starting to fall in love ;)

[thumb]http://andrescanelones.me/destinos/MpZi.png[/thumb] [url]http://andrescanelones.me/FSU/seminoles.html[/url][/QUOTE] That's looking real nice but you need to remove the lines under the inputs and instead have the border-bottom of the inputs to be your line, then you need to remove the on focus outline on the inputs and instead have it make the border-bottom a much darker colour and slightly change the inputs background. Then you are sorted. but yeah, the page looks great and all that ^ is just me being picky :3 [editline]asd[/editline] I just realised the border-bottom is already sorted, which just leaves removing the outline effect and having the focus do something else prominant, my bad :c

  • I like simplicity, I also like web-access portfolios... So I just did this. Wouldn't mind some help styling it though if you've any suggestions. I only know HTML4, so don't hurt me. Also, only the home and profile pages have been 'contented'... And the homepage needs something extra for a bit of zest.

  • Right, so I did some subtle changes to the webpage at my boss' request. [thumb]http://andrescanelones.me/destinos/oXX9.png[/thumb] -Added a subtle background gradient (didn't know you could stack up background elements like images and gradients, sadly, ie9 doesn't support it. ie10 does!) -made the text in the fields bigger -Followed your suggestions! thaaaanks.. btw, here's a little neat app for taking screenshots and uploading them directly to your server: [url]http://sharpmindprojects.com/project/upscreen/[/url] made by a fellow facepuncher

  • The design is cool but.. Don't use BR tags to generate space. That's what css margin is for. Use LABEL tags instead of P tags for the input labels Use normalize.css instead of a hard reset

  • Ok guys, I need your help to give me brief idea about this. I have a page where I want more than 1 pic of the product to be uploaded and then a display page where those pics should be displayed for that product. What is the best way to upload and keep record of those images in databases for each product ? Shall I store the multiple image names in a single database cell for a record, separated by commas for multiple image names ? That can be done. But how do I upload any number of images for that product. Will I have to declare the upload input as an array (using javascript to add any number of input upload elements at runtime) and then send it through POST ? or any other efficient way ?

The minimalistic look is a nice one.The paper background definitely needs to be just white if you change anything.

  • [QUOTE=Slater;37278034]On a more serious note, any inspiration on how I can style it nicely? That subtle background is a little [I]too subtle[/I].[/QUOTE] I respectfully disagree. It adds a nice touch to it without being distracting. Might be me though but is your Twitter logo not transparent? If so, there's a suggestion. Not style related but figured I might as well toss it in but instead of putting contact info on your page, perhaps a form? Of course, you'll need to learn some PHP for that but an email form is fairly easy to make. Oh, and the nitpick in me noticed a spelling mistake in 'Curriciulum Vitae', should be 'Curriculum'. Other than that, not much to say that hasn't been said already. It's simple, it works.

The Twitter logo isn't transparent no, I got lazy when I saved the image. I've done a PHP email form before, and I was thinking about doing it again here, thanks for reminding me!

  • I don't consider myself an expert in fluent HTML/PHP, but my brother enlisted me to help create a website for his little business he's got going. Obviously to someone who has no experience making websites it looks absolutely amazing, but to me, I feel like I could improve some more. [url]http://iphone-factory-unlocking.com[/url] I would love feedback on my design and how I could improve upon it. I haven't really designed a full-fledged website since I got out of my highschool webdesign class, but other than that, this is really just a collaboration of everything I know thus far. I had to look up on how to do certain things but meh. BTW, is there an alternative to me having to make a "wrap" for everything? I have a wrap for the entire website, a wrap for the header/links/content/footer...I think I'm doing it wrong, lol. Can't even properly add a "box-shadow" CSS property because of the way I'm using "float:left".

If you dont mind in my opinion you should use cleaner text like this what i made : (hope you dont mind i used your text) [IMG]http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/6939/sampledo.png[/IMG] [IMG]http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/8568/22281272.png[/IMG] Its more "clean" to give you an idea , without bevel and emboss! hope it helped goodluck!

  • I appreciate your feedback! However I don't like the look of that text. I do like the shiny effect though. Personally I tried to go for a color scheme that resembled an iPhone, but I didn't really spend much time working on it. The logo you see now was made previously as a concept to get an idea of how the website would look. I probably should've spent more time working on it than I did, but the website needed to go up as soon as possible. Maybe in the future I'll revamp the design, but for now, it's simple and effective, which is all that was required. Even now I'm running into problems with this design. It's so hacked together it's not even funny...I can't figure out where to put Facebook/Twitter/Google+ buttons :suicide:

You can make part of the sites and post small "teasers", and get suggestions on them. That way you get more detailed feedback than posting the complete site at once. Something to remember: - You should not make text into images. - I see no reason to have a "webcounter" on your site, it looks unprofessional. - Make high quality pictures, while still making the files as small as possible. - The w3 validations "ribbons", doesn't fit in at all (And it never does ...). - HTML 5 - Make the site easy for the eye, and easy to navigate
