I’ll cut right to the chase.

I was hired by a graphic designer to provide front-end coding for a series of design mockups for a new company. Everything was legit. I had been provided very detailed instructions from the client and provided all necessary design PSDs from the graphic designer.

After setting up a live demo for the graphic designer to view, I was given the ok from the designer that the client was satisfied and wished to proceed with the second round of designs.

After that, no more responses from the graphic designer. I have emailed, facebooked, etc and no more responses. It’s been a month and a half and I know for a fact the designer is alive and well.

I on the other hand, have not been paid and fear that my initial coding and framework for the entire site was stolen and was used by the graphic designer to complete the project without me.

What should I do? I do have the clients email address and contact information and have debated actually contacting the client directly and bringing this up. The thing is, my html, css and custom javascript work could be being used in a very large companies website without me releasing the files properly or being paid.

What should I do?

This only happened on one server.

A Rackspace hosted Apache server.

Tried on other Apache servers, a Linux and Litespeed with no issues. This has got to be a server issue, but I have no idea what it could be. I searched and searched, and they searched and searched and the only way to fix the problem on this particular server is to comment out that line.

It really is the strangest thing. There are millions of WP installs and I have yet to come across this one issue.

Don’t get your panties in a wad, other than saying ‘80 hours? Seriously?’ I have not commented in this thread. I just assume if you’re going to spend 80 hours worth of developing a template, why not just create you own.

Lighten up, sheesh.

Host claimed? What host? GoDaddy? :)

Rackspace actually…And yes, I did attempt a fresh install. Also, I can install WP 3 .0.1 on any other server and not have comment out that single line, and everything works perfect.

Right on, we disagree. Just be warned, if I buy one of your themes and put upwards of 80 hours into like I usually do, my name goes in big bold at the bottom and that’s just the way it be ;) Cheers.

80 hours? Seriously?

Recently did a theme for a client and had the following happen:

After 10 days on a new server and working flawlessly, WP began to prompt me to download post-new.php instead of parsing the file when ‘add new’ was selected for post or pages. Host claimed they didn’t change anything. I tried increasing php memory, no go. After 3 days worth of research, the only viable solution was to comment out line by line the post-new.php to determine if I could make something happen or break further. Turns out line #50 of the post-new.php file commented out worked

$post = get_default_post_to_edit( $post_type, true );

Now, try and explain that one!

I tested a fresh install on 3 other servers (Apache and Litespeed) and the theme I was using. No plugins were used on any install. Everything worked fine without commenting this line on all other servers…..

Thank Rohan!

You should leave that up! No doubt someone else will be looking for that, how about a mini tutorial on it? I couldn’t find anything describing how to do it anywhere searching! Great work!

Kevin,

I would try contacting the theme author directly. I’m sure they can get your issue all sorted out much faster.

Is it possible to use the box shadow property with an inset as well as an outer shadow? If so, how do you string it together properly?

I’ve tried a couple different ideas with no luck. Using the property twice obviously cancels out the previous box shadow property.

I’m trying to style up some input fields using a inset shadow and an outer shadow (giving both shadows to same element).

Any help is greatly appreciated. I searched a bit but couldn’t find anything on using both shadows together.

Thank you!

Did the prices on TF items go up about $5?

I was browsing some of the older files here on TF and am noticing $22 price tags on html/css files from a long way back. Did the prices go up? When did this happen?
