It all comes down to "you get what you pay for" really FreePgs is a fantastic host for testing of personal purposes but not perfect for a business person looking to host a professional website.

Mysql is a lot more stable than it used to be but it still goes down every now and then but for a max of $30 who can complain.

You can link 3 domain names to your account and I think you can have 3 sub domains per domain.

Hey don't be rude. If you have friends who have questions there are a lot of other forums they can go to, you shouldn't let people use your account, how can anyone elaborate with your friend if it's not even his account? I can't help you, I am not one of those people who will actually read through a million lines of crap whenever somone has a problem. If you're asking for help you should at least isolate the problem and not make people read through your entire file.

Actually maybe I can help.

It seems that if the person would have defined the height and width of the image in the classes/ids that contain them there would be no strange space, because I tried that on my site and it worked, something to try anyway. I can't really tell because he doesn't provide what the "clearfix" class is so I have no idea what it does. And I can't figure out if his stuff is in HTML comment tags because it's supposed to be or if he just did that when he was testing it. By teh look o fteh image it just seemslike IE is padding because a height value needs to be specified. I'm pretty sure that if whatever is containing everything had a defined height based on the image the weird blue space would go away.

As a matter of fact you were the one being rude
Quoteoh. Well he should sign up.
and to be perfectly honest you are the most annoying  know-it-all in the freePgs community. I say no more on the matter because I don't want this topic to bet locked!

(Just for the record I don't normally have slanging matches on forums or anywhere else for that matter)

Thanks for the help guys ill let him know when I see him today.

And what is the point of him signing up for 1 question?

Normally I keep my opinions to my self but.... if you want to help then please help otherwise don't bother posting because I really don't want to read a load of pointless posts from you.

Support Requests / css padding problem
June 20, 2006, 09:20:03 AM

I'm having trouble getting a theme I'm designing for a package I'm using to work properly in IE. Here's a screen shot, with the offending area in turquoise:

no matter what I do, I can't get rid of that padding, which seems to be around the image.

Changing the padding properties for any of the divs seems to have failed. Is this an IE quirk that can be got around? Any ideas much appreciated.

the code is simple:

echo $bodytags";
    if ($focus) {
        echo " onload=\"setfocus()\"";
<div id="page">
<?php if ($home) {  // This is what gets printed on the home page only  

    <div id="header-home" class="clearfix">
      <!--<h1 class="headermain">
      <?php echo $heading ?></h1>-->
       <div class="headermenu"><?php echo $menu ?></div>
       <a href=""><img src="<?php echo $CFG->wwwroot;?>/theme/chameleon/pix/pms_silver_2_02.jpg" alt="Home"></a>
<!--<div class="navbar clearfix">

and the CSS looks like this: (relevant tags are the last two)

div#header-home {
  background-image: url(pix/pms_silver_2_03.jpg);
  background-repeat: repeat-x;
  margin: 0px;
  padding: 0px;
  background-color: #00ffff;
  border-width: 1px;
  border-style: solid;
  border-color: #666666;
div#header {
  padding: 0px;
  background-image: url(pix/pms_silver_2_03.jpg);
  background-repeat: repeat-x;
  background-color: #aaaaaa;
  border-color: #666666;

Yeah when the server gets too many connections it locks every 1 out, they have played with the max user things and stuff the problem is better than it was.

How would I go about setting up a cron job in plesk to run a php page once a day? The things it's asking for is confusing me lol.

Somewhere on the plesk panel there is a little icon which opens up the web mail loin page does that work?

Ok I think you have to enable web mail in your plesk panel. is the pop3 server but you have to get your own SMTP server from your isp or something.

Hope this helps.

Yeah thanks both of you ill use tables instead of pure css, I didn't want to have to use tables but it makes more sense to.

earlier you said you wanted to make a CSS table.. well that's just silly. Why make a CSS table when you can use a normal Table? Always use teh appropraite tools my perspective teacher says. You can use a trangle for a straight edge but sometimes it just doesn't measure up.

Actually it is not silly, it called keeping your code clean and flowing. It is my goal to make a site where table tags and other conventional  tags are replaced with css.
