Not bad for a first page! You should change the mouseover link color though.

What whitewash means to say, Kamikazee, is that he himself should make his own page with his own preference of mouse-over color :hammer: :devillaugh:

I think it's looking great :)

No, really
It's the standard link-color and it's like using Times New Roman as page font

I make websites for a living so I should know what I'm talking about :P

yeah i was gonna use ligh green or a blend of yellow and green but one page was already purple and to be quite honest i couldn't be @rsed.
I might change it to that table background technique. where a a border gif is set in a table so text is inside it like that xcom.co.uk or whatever it is.
wot d'ya reckon.
hey did anybody notice the download thingy, i likes that. got nothing to put in it just my editation of supsupers flash game.
it requires a specific password and a general password, and you get five attempts each time. although i may change this at a later stage (its annoying at times).
I need fact for the about page. got any?

Hey Kamikazee, it's a good start, as Micah can vouch for I cringed to see the extensive table use. :) I know everybody uses it to start out, but I would highly recommend the use of
elements to put your links and content inside, and then use cascading style sheets (CSS) to position those elements where you want them to go. It makes it much easier to edit the content or the presentation of the content if the two are seperated. Check out www.w3schools.com for good tutorials, and www.meyerweb.com/eric/css/edge/ for specific goodies on cool CSS coding, I've learned a bunch from both sites. The main benefit comes when you don't have to repeat code over and over, like your mouseover code on links. Declare it once at the top, and you're done.

Of course, having Geocities force you to have ads that try to force cookies on your system is usually a necessary evil when you can't afford web hosting. But you can find hosts out there for less than $5 a month, and you can do a lot more with greater flexibility.

thanxs breunor for the tips, how long did it take you to learn html, javascript, css etc?
I know the site is a bit crappy but ive only spent a few days learning HTML again, i kinda prefer Javascript (same thing but im better at javascript and java 4 some strange reason). I've mainly been learning from javascriptkit.com (used to be websiteabstraction.com).
I'm planning a major overhaul of my site some time soon, also i am looking for a new host which does not use frames cos it stops my little features on my V1 working meaning i had to use the lame V0.9 :(

oh well... wot format do you suggest. I was thinking of trying some xml just for the sake of it.

off topic: does anyone know any good flash tutorial sites that may have something similar to a rotating geoscape?

xml is really only useful for database manipulation, if you mean xhtml, there's not too much to learn, it's really just html5, requires cleaner code that follows stricter standards. This is a good thing, assuming future browsers will be based on common standards.

javascript is fun to play with, you can do all kinds of things when learning it, and can make some really nice sites using it in the background. The main thing is to not throw it down the viewer's throat with all kinds of flashy doo-dads that are there just because they're neat. I used to make sample pages to play with effects, rather than toss it on my main page. It's not like the page was visited anyway...

I've been playing with web page design for around a year now, started learning the basics from htmlgoodies.com (they have lots of tutorials including a bunch of javascript stuff), then learned about CSS and the benefits of that, and have recently been learning about XML so I can start showing actual game data files in the X-Net viewer page. I've just about got that figured out and will start to implement it soon.

I've been playing with html on and off, only recently have I been doing a lot of it. Pretty much I find out what effect I want, and search the net for how to implement it. That patchwork method isn't the best, but it helps me get by. :D

supSuper: I haven't really done much just finished some minor detaials and added some stuff for when a battlescape is added. still need to sort out the rotating, zoom is sorted though. however, there are a lot of compatability problems as i created it on an adapted flash program. but i will convert it into the proper format later.

Bruenor: ive mastered javascript twice over, i must say its my favouite language to play with. as for xml i did mean xhtml oops. i'm just gonna use it for the sake of using it as it is basically a new html and i wanna stay up to date. as for the link to w3schools thanxs, it had a reference page which was great! there is nothing worse than having to search through tonnes of tutorials to find one little minor detail. I did start css but i got distracted by dos and basic and kinda forgot a lot of stuff but i remember it all know, yay!

okay people, V2 is nearly ready!

it has had redesign and all jscript functions are now external so its nice and tidy. I'm still working on the download option though, is there anyway to make it so when the user tries to visit a page within my site that doesn't exist that they be redirected to another page rather than get the standard cannot find page page

You can make an alternate 404 page, you make an htaccess file which points to your alternate page. www.lockergnome.com has one, try going to http://www.lockergnome.com/screwy.html and check out his 404 response. I don't remember the exact code or setup, but I'd guess a search on htaccess would get you going.

make the alternate page and then save it as 404.shtml in your root directory ;)

Look buddy, im the only one allowed to be sarcastic here! :)
Maybe next time you should read the entire topic? That is not my site, it has been deleted so i can add my new one when my PC is fixed, then when it all works i will put it on a half decent server. ok. :cussing:

takes some happy pills.

Thanxs for the offer sionic, how much space could i steal off you?
Ill probably just put it on tripod or something, i think they accept cgi scripts?
