The other week I saw **The Inbetweeners 2**, very funny but for a very select sense of humour!

It also uses font awesome for the icons, not images @gentlemedia, so: add `<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.4.0/css/font-awesome.min.css">` to the `<head>` and replace `<img src="icon-2.gif" alt="Icon 2" />` with `<h1><i class="fa fa-globe"></i></h1>` Hope this helpes :)

Because the evidence you've got here definitely looks very good, is there any way you could contact Google and flutter your eyes at them, and they might be really nice? And maybe DaniWeb should *consider* a tighter moderating system, not to re-write posts but to step in with stupid things …

Add this somewhere in your stylesheet, or find it in the bootstrap CSS file (usually line 5 of bootstrap.min.css) and change it there. .navbar-default { background-color: #f8f8f8 !important; border-color: #e7e7e7 !important; }

Note: read http://php.net/manual/en/faq.passwords.php#faq.passwords.fasthash sha1 is not safe, do not use it! Have a read through [this](http://php.net/manual/en/book.password.php) and at the very least use the `crypt()` function.

phpBB 3.0.12 is (and can have mods to make it even better) pretty good at stopping spam, so maybe still worth looking at. Other free ones could be SMF or MyBB, but really phpBB is the most established and is known to handle much larger forums. If you're really despirate …

^ Agreed :) BTW - a little off-topic pointer: Because `if(){}` looks to see if a statement is true, and will do an `else` if not, you do not need `== true` (PHP will do this automatically) So this: if(mysql_connect("$dbhost", "$dbusername", "$dbpassword") == true) Will do the same as this: …

Hi All, I've just tried to get going with Django using MySQL, but linking them has been a nasty headache. I am using Python v3.5, Django v1.9 and MySQL 5.6. I've definately got MySQL/Python talking, but Django always has the problem: File "X:\Program Files\Python\lib\site-packages\django-1.9-py3.5.egg\django\db\backends\mysql\base.py", line 25, in <module> import MySQLdb …

Nothing worse than bad grammar, simply just makes the person look like an idiot. My Mum always used to stop us and make me and my brothers say everything again if we couldn't word things properly. I wish parents could take that up again!

**[Copy](https://www.copy.com/page/home;section:landing)** - I've used it for a little while now and can't fault it. It's an excellent site **15GB of FREE space, plus another 5GB for refferals**! Includes sync, no file limits and 30 day history & recovery. As with dropbox, two users can share data between two accounts.

In the nicest possible way, `&nbsp;` characters were never going to display correctly. Yes tables are bad practice, but the correct alternative involves a CSS grid system. By all means give [this](http://purecss.io/grids/) a go and see how you get on. The beauty of grids is that, once you get going …

You users table is fine. (Make sure you're using the right datatypes - varchar(X)/int() - and A_I/PRIMARY_KEY for the ID) Item Desc: ID,NAME,TYPE,ATTACK (again with correct datatypes) Inventory: ID, USER_ID, ITEM_ID, [.. anything else you might need] (all int() datatypes, with A_I/PRIMARY_KEY for the ID) Use a new row for …

I think what you're doing here is either weird on unclear. So my understanding is, you add a row (ID = 1, TIER = 1, PARENT = 0) then when you add another row the TIER should increment (ID = 2, TIER = 2, PARENT = 1). This should happen …

I think your DB is pretty much there (indiviual opinions may differ), but you know your application best. You can do a PHP/SQL loop like: $date = time(); // today $days = 10; while($days > 0) { // SQL-> "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM tblbreakups WHERE breakondate='".date('Y-m-d', $date)."'" if($result_count == 0) { …

Remove the `&nbsp;` in your HTML, and set your margins in css: @media screen and (max-width: 320px) { .menubar1 > a { box-sizing: border-box; display: block; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; padding: 0; margin: 10px 0; } } **Notes:** * There is no need to repeat your code in the @media …

Agreed that maybe the `if` block needs sorting, and please PLEASE put a [real escape](http://php.net/manual/en/mysqli.real-escape-string.php) on those variables: (line 5) `$pkgname = mysqli_real_escape_string ( $connection , $_POST["pkgname"] )`. Additional validation would be a good idea, but isn't necessarily essential. After line 16, add a new line with `print_r($_POST["pkg_detail"]);`, so we …

Firstly, **`mysql_*` is dead now** - `mysqli_*` should really be used. Also, there's no housekeeping here!! Your query is a lovely advert for SQL injection! `session_start()` should be the very first thing on your page: before output of any kind. You also have several messy `<option>` tags: only one can …

3D in photoshop to create an animated GIF would probably be easiest - I can't think of any other way without using CSS transformations, but to be fair, if your users are still using IE8 than they're already doomed. Maybe suggest they upgrade, or have a static IE8 fallback alternative?
