Webmasters / Re: Help On Javascript. by yawatide(f): 9:58am On Nov 02, 2013
1) IMHO, it probably makes sense to do this on the backend. For instance, what if javascript is turned off? Either way, the logic is the same:
a) Get the year, using the language's date library. Or just hardcode the year in mind (say 2020)
b) Store the year in a variable
c) Run your (for) loop like so:
for(i=0 (this could also be hardcoded to a particular number, say 1917); i <= (your year variable...could also have been hardcoded); i++) {
print i;
}

2) Looks like you want to use PHP's fopen(), or whatever function here
Webmasters / Re: Who Needs A Site Like Nairaland For N15k by yawatide(f): 5:04pm On Oct 29, 2013
Actually, I was willing to offer 1K. I would have said free but I realize that we all have to be paid for our efforts cool

Webmasters / Re: Youtube-like Video Player For A Website by yawatide(f): 11:12pm On Oct 25, 2013
Displaying is fine but what about hosting? Video files are generally very large. Does he have his own dedicated server. or some CDN? If not, I would find a way to convince him to stick to youtube or vimeo. I mean, why do the suffering when someone else is willing to do it for you wink

Your request doesn't make sense to me. What exactly are you asking for? Reply with a specific example.

Note:
Your response doesn't necessarily mean that I may be able to help you. All am saying is I need to know more to determine if I can help you at all tongue
Webmasters / Re: Do Africans Value Their Own Languages ? by yawatide(f): 5:34pm On Oct 25, 2013
Right there, you are limiting yourself. What is wrong with you coming up with a search engine written in your language? Must you always be a consumer?

Regardless, I have a website that serves as a dictionary for my language. It gets hundreds of hits a day. Sure, it is written in English but the bulk of the content is in my language. So, don't worry about the base language. Build it and if people see value in it, they will come.

Good luck!

Tis the beginning of the future for mobile web dev - write once, use everywhere. Big time companies are beginning to use it. You really have no excuse not to. Of course, you could choose to ignore it at your own business peril.
Webmasters / Re: Builders Of Obama's Health Website Saw Red Flags by yawatide(f): 4:02pm On Oct 22, 2013
That's government and cronyism for you. Having been fortunate to have worked for companies whose sites are visited by millions daily, I can say that they had it all wrong, especially considering they had 3 years to prepare for this.

Worse case, they could have done away with the gold plating. They could have instead done a soft launch, with quality assurance running the tests, then add on more requirements over time. They would have also done some load testing and anticipated the worse case scenario of at least half the estimated people who don't have insurance, logging on at the same time. Have you viewed the main .js file that they "wrote"? If not, please do. It's sickening.

Bottomline, the coders and the US government goofed! At a time when the US is running massive deficits and owes trillions, this "project" has been one massive FUBAR

Why do some people always prefer to say, "contact me" for posts like this instead of posting the answer(s), or links to the answer(s), so that others can learn?

SMH
Webmasters / Re: Review This Website Please by yawatide(f): 1:42pm On Oct 18, 2013
1) Reduce the height of the "good governance" header in the nav area, top right. It is causing the entire nav area to be unnecessarily "fat". Besides, if you hover over an item, you note that the hover background isn't as tall as the main background, thus bolstering my point.

2) I find it interesting that the client doesn't want a slider at the top but wants an article slider at the bottom. Doesn't make sense to me. SMH

3) You probably should move the "about us" tab right next to "home". For people like me, what determines whether or not I surf a site is what I find on the "about us" page. If I can't easily find the page, as is the case here, I quickly lose interest
Webmasters / Re: Website Review by yawatide(f): 6:16pm On Oct 14, 2013
A few things, some of which borders around consistency:

1) Header image is loading on some pages but not others

2) In chrome, navigation text is not vertically aligned with the green container

3) Services page: Makes sense to list the services (UL and LI) with links, then you click the link and either it is an intra link to the corresponding section on the same page or a link to another page

4) Gallery:
a) Not your fault (if you didn't take the images). I am putting myself in the shoe of a potential customer. I am looking at those pictures and the faces of those employees don't say, "hi, I look forward to securing you and your property". Perhaps they should go for models or professionally taken photos

b) your fault: When I hover over a thumbnail, the other thumbnails "run" across the screen. What I would expect is for the thumbnails to "run" only when I click the last visible thumbnail, or a "next" link.

If this is the case, tis a sad day indeed. Of all the state websites out there, CRS's is the last one on my list that would have ever gone offline, even for 5 minutes.
Webmasters / Re: Help,mag Project by yawatide(f): 5:45pm On Oct 09, 2013
Start off using google adsense, or services like that. That should at least give you some revenue, while waiting for actual advertisers. For the actuals, you will need some solid data (traffic, etc) to convince them as to why they should spend money on you, as opposed to the other guy.

Good luck!
Webmasters / Re: Who Is Using Google Analytics by yawatide(f): 12:17pm On Oct 07, 2013
I am glad to have been of help. yw.
Webmasters / Re: Who Is Using Google Analytics by yawatide(f): 6:51pm On Oct 06, 2013
2 things:

1) You are yet to tell me how much time elapsed b/w when you pasted the code and you checked your results

2) I have found from experience, that once you copy, there is a "save this account (or words to that effect)" button at the bottom of the page. If you just copy and paste and don't click this button, the account won't get activated.
Webmasters / Re: Who Is Using Google Analytics by yawatide(f): 12:25pm On Oct 06, 2013
It takes about 24 hours for the results to start showing. How much time had elapsed b/w the time you installed it and the time you started checking your results? Also, did you install it exactly how and where you were supposed to? Finally, is there a link to this blog so we can check it out live?
Webmasters / Re: Need Help With A Stockbroker Website by yawatide(f): 8:27pm On Oct 03, 2013
So, you took a job, without knowing if you could handle the requirements? Better yet, you didn't get the full requirements before taking on the job?

At any rate, how would you expect them to manually feed the prices? It would have to be done automatically. That only makes sense. I would imagine that the NSE has provided an API for folks to get and display such information. It might cost you though. If it does, did you figure this into the amount of money you want to charge your client?

When all is said and done, I hope and trust you would have learned your lesson(s) for the future.

Good luck!

Just google for and implement one of the many jQuery solutions and you will be good to go.

I use livevalidation for my front end validation. Sure, it may not apply to your format of numbers but nothing stops you from modifying it.
Webmasters / Re: My Upload File Script Fails To Work Online by yawatide(f): 1:02pm On Sep 26, 2013
I believe this can be increased via the php.ini file on your server. Having said that, if you are on a shared server, your host may still not allow more than 2mb.

Can't you just take the strain off of your server and use dropbox, or other similar alternatives?

An honest seo specialist will tell you that it will take at least a couple of months for your site to get indexed and ranked, if you are going the organic route. An honest seo specialist will also not employ black hat methods to force the search engines to rank you up there. An honest seo specialist will also tell you that seo is a continuous process and that if you let your site's content go stale, you will start to drop off. Finally, an honest seo specialist will first of all explain how they will take you to the top (their strategy).

Good luck in your search.

Webmasters / Re: Fixed HTML To Responsive Layout. by yawatide(f): 1:13pm On Sep 25, 2013
you don't mind paying? Was it supposed to be free?

anyways, conversion is perhaps more involved than recoding from scratch as everything will need to have a reference point and all the pixel measurements will then need to be recalculated with percentages. At any rate, as the other poster has said, you may contact our resident responsive specialist, the one and only GraphicPlus smiley
Webmasters / Re: Checkout This Website by yawatide(f): 10:00pm On Sep 24, 2013
Get rid of the fixed position of the "contact us" module - depending on your screen resolution and where you scroll to, it ends up blocking content and girlz no get time to dey scroll left and right to read stuff. I jus wan go d site for wetin dey dia - content...Not to praise d coder's effizy
Webmasters / Re: Website Design Challenge: Do You Know How This Was Done? by yawatide(f): 9:58pm On Sep 24, 2013
The actual red "pins" were most likely implemented via the Google Maps API, using coordinates of the respective cities. If you study that API well, you will learn how to do even cooler stuff like causing the white "bubble" to show, on hover of the red pin, showing the data you please about the particular location wink
