Technical Support / Xepher banner and Lightbox 2 not playing well
« on: April 19, 2010, 12:38:40 am »
It looks like both the Xepher link banner and Lightbox 2 (a Javascript based image display thing) use an element (a div, I think) with the "overlay" id, and this messes Lightbox 2 up.. Would it be easy to change the Xepher banner's id to "xepher_banner_overlay" or something? Might be good to change it to more specific id for something that is included on so many pages anyway.

I have tried fixing this by changing the Lightbox 2 id, but it turns out that this is rather more involved than I can manage at the moment.


Web Design / Cleaning up PHP $_GET URLs
« on: December 09, 2007, 11:30:17 pm »
I am building a site with PHP/MySQL, and I was wondering.. Is there a good way to get URLs like


to appear as, and and be accessible from something like


where "tree-27" is the name of the picture and its id. (Having the id number in the URL along with the name prevents to images with identical names from causing problems..)

Well, after lurking here for several years, I have finally registered on the forums, and, well, here goes.

Desired URL:
Email: webmaster ~a~ yny-u ~dot~ com

Proposed site: A place to experiment with web design and host my art - sketches, paintings, illustrations, comics, photographs, etc.

To see what I can do art-wise:

Let me see.. I am familiar the XHTML, CSS, PHP/MySQL/Smarty and a bit of Javascript - to see an example, go  to As you will see, they have disabled MySQL, but that should at least show that I can put together a basic web page (I hope ^^; ).

Technical questions... If this site proposal is accepted, can I have at least one directory outside the root? I would like to have one to store sensitive PHP includes (like db passwords). Also, I have recently started using PHP's Smarty templating engine ( Installing it is quite simple (if you don't have it already - basically just adding an include path to php.ini, creating a few directories, and sticking some PHP files in them. More info on installing Smarty: If it is too much trouble, that is fine, but Smarty is such a neat tool that I though I would at least ask..

OK, well, that about covers it I think.. If anyone has any questions, please ask me. Any critiques or suggestions would be most welcome.
