Question about applying a style from a stylesheet. I would like to define a number of styles in an external stylesheet with unique names, then call them in html. The idea is to have a base style with defined colours, and then define other details after that. Css tutorials on the web do something like this but with tags like p, h1 or a, restricting this to basic html functions. Can I do it with a tag like stig1?

Are you familiar with classes and IDs within CSS?

Not within CSS, but I'm familiar with it in VB. If I have an example to work from, then I should understand the concept to make it work. What I would like is something like this:

CSS
stig1 {color
background color}
dump1 {font style
font size}
stig2
dump2, etc.

HTML
<stig1> // define colour
<dump1> // define font

You'd either name (class/ID) the font element within the HTML and then define its styling in the CSS. Or name (class/ID) the div the font element is in within the HTML and then define its styling in the CSS.

Thanks. Class does the trick.

What you've suggested will work with custom elements, but for Edge or IE (or probably both!) you'll need to set their display property or they won't play ball.

Related to that, at what point (when making a website with a small scope) do you stop optimising for niche browsers? I seem to recall that Edge & IE have a combined market share of 4-5%, so say you have a week's development time (random figure plucked from my backside) do you assign to making browsers like Samsung Internet and Edge look crispy?

If they're low market share, I wouldn't spend time on them. This is probably one of the biggest changes I made in my current job - when I joined they supported _everything_ and it's pointless, you develop in your core browser and then give you attention to what is sensible - in our case, it's a desktop web app so we ignore mobile and then we support chrome as core, last 2 versions, then we organise the rest into priorities based on users usage and judge what is and isn't appropriate to spend time on based on that usage. If no-one using it, then you're just wasting your own time.

If you're not using data from that product you can always go for a set from caniuse and then reassess when you have data.

Is there any out of the box / open source 'web app' solution? Just need some basic forms and the ability to return queries.

I need to build something basic to help my mother manage her business, I have a web server with MySQL but I don't have a great deal of time to learn how to do it from scratch ;D I use PowerApps to do this at work but that's out of the question due to Office 365 licensing, and I have tried her on MS Access to no avail!

I’d start by googling/searching for open source alternatives to powerapps if that does the job you want it to do.

Never heard of ipage to be honest.

GoDaddy and Wix seem the two most popular services like this.

if you can build a site then just buy a domain and use netlify to host. plenty of frameworks and that to knock something up in a few hours.

doubt you'd get anything e-commerce totally free.

Shopify is probably the simplest as that's what it's made for but you can also do wordpress e-commerce.

If it's only small quantities you may be best looking at something like an Etsy store. They'll take fees, but then most services will for payment processing, etc even if a free store. Plus you get the added benefit of an instant audience on those sorts of stores.

Not sure what the clothing is, etc but ASOS do (or used to, haven’t checked for a while) a marketplace section where people could set up their own mini stores.

I'm writing a small program to download threads to pdf. Got most of it working, but I'd like it to email a pdf of a page when it's completed.
Does anyone know how I could check for the end of a page?

-- current best thought is to look at the url for a page (they go up in steps of 40) , and try and detect if there's a single post.
Or maybe a bit of regular expression (never could do those) to read the page numbers at the top or bottom....

Using RSS may make things a whole lot simpler.

Anyone in here use vue with material design?
I'm just messing about but I cannot get grid to work.
In fact in my project, I'm not sure it's even acknowledging the design.
(When I say 'my' project, I mean the sample tutorial I went with and then am trying to add material)


-- edit-- I figured it out. 😁

ps- SP , in the end I ended up counting the number of times something on the user profile bit occured. If it's 40, the page is done. I've always struggled to get the RAWK rss feed to work. I always seem to get a feed of the home page or something.

Hi, I was wondering if anybody here is knowledgeable on Google Ads and their most effective placement and size?
Also, I currently use AutoAds, which has been fine, but I wonder if anybody on here would be able to cast their eye over my site and identify if there are any benefits to moving from AutoAds to permanently placed ads.
Thank you.

You mean placement on your site or running your own banner ads elsewhere?

As unobtrusive as possible whilst being as well placed as you can so you get maximum revenue tends to be the best way isn't it?

Every page is designed to drive conversions. No filler words or images; each design element has a purpose in communicating your brand and your message.
