Cheers guys but that’s not what I was on about – what I want is a link that sends people to my designs on ThemeForest BUT also gets me some $ if the visitor joins Envato/Buys someone else’s design.

I have two simple forms on a web page I’m making – both HTML (not PHP ).

The first form is a simple javascript password gate that sends the user to the next page if their password is correct. The second form is a contact form.

Both forms have their own ‘ID’.

I’m using a simple validation javascript to make sure the contact form has been filled in:

function setFocus(aField) { document.forms0.focus(); }

function isAnEmailAddress(aTextField) {

if (document.forms0.value.length<5) { return false; } else if (document.forms0.value.indexOf(”@”) < 1) { return false; } else if (document.forms0.value.length - document.forms0.value.indexOf(”@”) < 4) { return false; } else { return true; } }

function isEmpty(aTextField) { if ((document.forms0.value.length==0) || (document.forms0.value==null)) { return true; } else { return false; } }

function validate() {

if (isEmpty(“name”)) { alert(“Please fill in your Name.”); setFocus(“name”); return false; }

if (isEmpty(“email”)) { alert(“Please fill in your Email address.”); setFocus(“email”); return false; }

if (isEmpty(“comment”)) { alert(“Please fill in your message.”); setFocus(“comment”); return false; }

if (!isAnEmailAddress(“email”)) { alert(“The entered email address is invalid.”); setFocus(“email”); return false; }

return true;

}

The problem is this – the two forms + vlaidation script simply wont work together; I have to either delete the first form (the password gate) or go without the contact form.

Any ideas?

In the new design I’m making for my Portfolio I have added links to ThemeForest and GraphicRiver but they are of course links to my designs (when I do some uh oh) and NOT referral links.

Example: http://themeforest.net/user/RobbyDesigns

My question is : If someone hits that link, shys away from my work but goes on to buy something else, then why can’t Envato sort it out that I still get a referral bonus?

I’m sure I’m not the only one who links this way.

I’d be interested to hear your replies and views, thanks everyone.

Thanks for the tip. I already have a website http://www.robbydesigns.com but work is slow to come. I’m redesigning my site at the moment and am looking for ways to get the word out.

Any ideas appreciated.

Which is best for getting some web design work? DeviantArt or Flickr?

I love DeviantArt but I’m not sure if clients go there – it seems ‘just’ a meeting place for artists and designers.

What do you think?

I’m converting a Joomla theme to HTML but am stuck with this statement in the CSS :

.min-width {width:expression(((document.documentElement.clientWidth || document.body.clientWidth) < 981)? "981px" : "100%"); min-width:981px;}

Can someone tell me the CSS equivalent (if it even needs it), thank you.

I’m with ‘clarklab’ – ages ago I updated two websites unknowing I had some freaky thing on my computer which got itself into the updates..when the sites went live they had little ‘iframes’. I scanned for viruses, found a nasty (cant remember what its called but I was only using AVG Free Edition at the time so it’s gotta be easy to find and delete). I killed the nasty, changed the FTP details and re-upped, no problems ever since. Nowadays I scan for viruses once a week (:

Thanks for your input, appreciate it.

As for ‘carriers’ what are they? Is that what we in the UK call ‘Networks’ (02, Vodafone, etc).

Hers is a basic mobile phone, nothing flashy and that’s why I am confused. Maybe, if I’m reading it right, jonathan01 has solved it – maybe it’s true that they are pushing YouTube and blocking all other sites but that seems strange.

Hmmm..it’s a puzzle hey.

Hmm, interesting problem here – I just went to my local shop and the lady said she could only go to YouTube on her new mobile phone and could I change it so she can go to Google instead.

No worries, I thought (what a fool)! I clicked the button to launch her Home page (YouTube) and forced it to take me to Google (by refusing their Terms of Service) as I could not find anywhere to actually type a URL . Once at Google, I chose’options’ and chose to set Google.com to the Home page for her phone. Done….err..but..it comes up with ‘Error 403 Forbidden’.

So, I exitted the internet from her phone and, rather than clicking her ‘internet’ button (which would take me again to YouTube) I found a browser in the phone, went to Google, set it as the Home page and low and behold ‘Error 403 Forbidden’.

wtf ?
