Why also does this show up constantly when trying to post an image

TypeError: 'responseText' is null or not an object

Hey Craig,
I don't think it is boring at all; in fact I think it looks very professional! And it looks like you got that scrolling marquee working!

Thanks Duke, just had a look at your site and it looks great. Can I ask how did you do the pics with the writing above and also the little pictures relating to twitter, favourites as I would like to incorporate these into another website im creating?

HI Craig,

This will explain the FB & Twitter links. http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/mak...

For the book mark link i used this script - http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicin...

(You can find great icons to use as links here http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/... )

For the moving images i used this script - http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicin...

<!--

And for the text in the box's i use this simple code - if you add it to a text widget through the html function you can easily edit it or add what ever you like inside it.

<div style="border: 1px solid white; padding: 10px; background-color: rgb(134, 36, 35); text-align: center;"><font size="3"><b>TEXT HERE<br></b></font></div>
<div style="border-style: none solid solid; border-color: white; border-width: 0px 1px 1px; padding: 10px;"><div style="text-align: center;">
<div style="text-align: center;"><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br></div></div></div>

------------------------------------- END OF CODE -----------------------------------
-->

To change the color change this: rgb(134, 36, 35) - you can find a full color chart here http://html-color-codes.com/rgb.html

I'll bet you wish you had never asked :) - Good luck - Lee.

Hey Craig

Awesome job with your site!

I don't know if you intended this or not.. but you have two homepage buttons at the bottom of your page.

The scrolling marquee looks great! I love how the "Latest News" goes back and forth!

Hi littleus cheers for the comments, just redone the header on photoshop c3, took ages but it worked out well hopefully will learn more as i plod along. Still looking for more ideas etc.

Yeah I put another home button there just to make it look even but will be replacing it as I have added a new tab!
