Technical Support / recommendations for domain name stuff
« on: February 06, 2009, 11:53:18 pm »
I was thinking about getting a domain name finally, but since the last time I got one (aeons ago with GoDaddy) there have been plenty of options that are now included at added costs and numerous places to get a domain names registered. Mainly what I was wondering if you guys on the forums had any recommendations on which are the prime services and if those supplemental add-ons they offer are necessary? I would be ready to register with GoDaddy's  basic .com registration ($9.99 US), but I remember a few months back almost following through before they started offering all these other aspects that jumped the price. It got confusing and I told myself to research more into it before making permanent decisions.

Thoughts? Any opinion on this would be extremely helpful. I'll try and sift through the older posts and see if this has been discussed before.

Technical Support / My website is gone/missing
« on: August 15, 2008, 01:13:20 am »
Um, is this normal. I was clicking on my website and there's an Earthlink page that said it's moved/missing/gone. I checked my directory through the FTP and it's all there, so I'm confused...

Technical Support / lightbox
« on: May 25, 2008, 04:35:40 am »
So...I don't know what the deal is...but my lightbox coding (or something else) is all messed up. I don't know if it's just wordpress and the lightbox plugin doesn't want to work with each other or what, but it's keeps doing weird things that I don't have a clue how to fix.

(http://fraunie.xepher.net/blog/?page_id=39) This page gives a good example of what I'm talking about. I want the sidebard and the gallery to display separately with light box. When you click on the first image in the gallery, it wants to go to the sidebar instead and go through those first. Originally, I had the sidebar on the right side, but every time you clicked on an gallery image, those 6-8 images would just attach themselves to the end. Does anybody else run into this bug? I can't seem to figure out a way to get it to work right.

Applications / Fraunie

Hi, I was referred to this site by Robyn of Robynie.com, I mentioned how I was looking into webspace and she suggested you guys. So here I am!


Username: fraunie

Preferred URL: fraunie.xepher.net

Email: meganDOTfrauenhofferATgmailDOTcom

Site: Will be an art gallery of my works and hopefully much more.

Because I didn't have an actual site to apply with, Robyn is temporarily hosting me during the application process. I didn't want her to host my images however, because I felt like she was doing so much already, so I uploading them to another site, but I would obviously have it all on one site if accepted.

This is only a small taste of what I want to do. My big plans are to expand and have a site that's very blog-centric, using Wordpress, with the galleries and profiles and whatnot having their own respective parts. I want to be able to post works in progress, new artwork, tutorials, interesting art pages, exhibitions dates, new products at my shop, and much more. I like to write and make art, so I want my website to marry the two. And I don't want a static page, but one that's constantly adding to itself so that people will keep visiting. A good example of what I might post would be with these posts here:

http://merum.livejournal.com/12387.html and
http://merum.livejournal.com/15945.html

My art is very narrative based and is currently taking new directions. I'm even working on pixel art so I may shop around for videogame jobs (plus it's starting to be addictive and entertaining). I would love to have a website where I could get feedback from the visitors and, uh, actually have visitors if I am a part of a community of sites like this. In terms of my store, I'll probably still maintain the one I have currently on Etsy, but it would expand to products people would be interested in having, like postcards, possibly t-shirts, as well as the prints that are there.

My webdesigning skills are always developing. When I was in high school, I created Mafiadorks.com (now defunct) only using Notepad, learning basic html as I went along. For this website, I made it through Photoshop, referring to the books as I went along. If accepted, I want to use Wordpress, modifying a template to my own unique design. What I lack in skill I try to think outside of the box in order to create something above average. I do like webdesigning, so I wouldn't be surprise if that becomes something of a side project as I acquire a site to actually make more webdesigns for.

Feel free to ask any questions. I like being chatty and I'm just getting to know this community.
