    Question Having CSS, PHP & Video Issues...

    I have created a page called CSS. I published this page as PHP. This page contains the elements which I want to be constant on my website. The link to this page is http://www.quicktrainer.biz/css.php.

    Next, I have numerous pages I wish to publish. I have published one page, http://www.quicktrainer.biz/index.php, and it has an HTML box included on the page which has the following code:

    <?php
    include ("css.php");
    menu();
    ?>


    So, my issues are as follows:
    1. My index.php page has several text boxes, and an html box (for my Twitter badge). The text boxes change from page to page and I only wish to have the Twitter badge show up on the index page. The issue is, the text boxes and Twitter badge are not showing up. They are seemingly being covered up by the CSS.PHP page. I have tried bringing the text and HTML boxes to the front. I have also tried sending the elements on the CSS.PHP page to the back, to no avail. How do I resolve this issue?
    2. I have a current website, http://www.quicktrainer.biz, which makes up the overall look and feel I am now attempting to capture using PHP from #1 above. Am I correct in thinking I need to publish both the CSS and Index page as PHP? If so, how do I replace, what is currently http://www,quicktrainer.biz, with http://www.quicktrainer.biz/index.php, but naming it http://www.quicktrainer.biz? Is that confusing or what? Again, how do I resolve this issue?
    3. You will notice, on the pages http://www.quicktrainer.biz or http://www.quicktrainer.biz/index.php, there is a video, which is currently using Quick Time. This page seems to being loading slower than I care for, and it seems to stem from the qt video format. Would using a flash player allow this page to load faster? I've been playing around a little with trying to get a flash player to work, but no success yet (the key word being "yet"). Any suggestions?
    You all have always been so helpful in the past. I have no doubt someone will lead me down the path to success with these issues.

    Sincerely,

    Jim

    Hi,
    1. when you say bringing the boxes to the front, do you mean the html boxes containing the html code you placed on the index page.
    <?php
    include ("css.php");
    menu();
    ?>
    As this should do it .

    2. Just to make sure the pages are correct you would be better deleting all index pages & re-publish just the one index page with the Page properties>File extension selected as .php. Naturally the pages you re calling up to be on this same page should also be php.

    3.Video & large images are always a problem for web use. Only a personal view, but I don’t think they should be used on the front page as slow broadband & dialup visitors will just leave if the loading takes to long. I am cant remember which member did the conversion for Marincky (Ramsey) on a wedding site. But got them loading real fast. Might be worth a look through his posts (Was within the last couple of weeks)

    thanks for replying guys!

    i have made some progress with these issues.

    with regards to my original issue #3, i finally determined my video, which was in a .flv format, needed to be converted to .swf. once i did this, it loaded immediately, and it loads quickly. yes!!! check it out at http://www.quicktrainer.biz/index.php.

    with regards to my issue #1, dealing with the "text boxes"; if i attempt to incude any text, html boxes, etc, within the area in which my css.php document takes up. i cannot get this text or html data to show up. the reason this was important to me was i wanted to have a page specific quote and testimonial appear within the css area, without being a part of the css. again, the quote and testimonial were to be page specific. as a workaround, i simply have multiple quotes and testimonials scrolling with the css page. it works, but it is not my preference. any ideas would be welcome.

    finally, chris, can you elaborate what you mean in #2 of your post? currently i am doing a "redirect" so that when anyone types in www.quicktrainer.biz, they are redirected to www.quicktrainer.biz/index.php. this works, but i don't believe it's preferred to use redirects for seo purposes? so, how do i make sure that anyone who may know to type in www.quicktrainer.biz gets to my new php site and not the old html extension site.

    make sure you remove the OLD index.html off your server and it shouldnt be an issue. You can do this with your file manager in control panel. You shouldnt need to redirect it this way.

    Hi, Ditto with Karen. Its also worth then changing any links to not have the index.php part & to be http://www.quicktrainer.biz

    Well thats because theres no such thing as a css.php. Your style sheet should have the extensions css, you can make more than one css styles sheet. You just have to tag it to the page it belongs to.
