No, I’m not talking about the advert for the processed meat.
But I am talking about those faceless-f**kers who, not only choke the internet full of emails advertising bulls**t, but also spam, in their dozens, the same c**p on guestbooks.
Yes, my guest book is being spammed. AGAIN!
I don’t know whether to be glad, or angry!
At least it give me an incentive to start development on my anti-guestbook (wow! what a good name!) and i will have plenty of test material 😉
In the mean time, i have put up some temporary barriers.
But if it continues at the rate at which it has, 22 posts on the 12 and 53 today
I will have to disable my guest book
Those spam bots are at it again!
This time they are spamming the Ajax post I posted back in November, so I have had to disable comments for my blog, as currently there is no option to disable comments on a post-by-post basis.
This is one feature I would (now!) like to see implemented *hint*hint* 😉
Plus better support for the smilies!
Finally, after a week, my new domain is activated, now all that I need to do is to start copying the old website over to the new domain.
This new domain and hosting is a positive step forward for me, as it means that my site is taken away from the ad ridden beast that is tripod and moved to hosting on – well – tripod!
This should mean that the copying of the website over is easy, I just need to find “webcopier”
I have finally taken the plunge!
I have ordered a domain name and webhosting from lycos at a cost of Â£5 a month which is about Â£70 a year including VAT
I will be able to manage my account within the next 24-48 hours, and the domain registration checks take between 1-5 days.
The domain name that I am using is roganty.co.uk (how’d you guess 😉 )
The introduction of the new website layout was so that I could get rid of the old table based layout and introduce a more flexible, standards compliant layout that would hopefully work in as many browsers as possible.
But with the influence of NoZen I decided to create several different CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) style sheets
I have created two new styles, but I have yet to incorporate them into the websites structure
The screen shot below shows the first style which has two separate menu bars
One for the main menu, which is located at the top of the page, and the second is the submenu bar which is located below the page heading
The screen shot below shows the second style which moves the main menu, and submenu bar to the left side of the screen.
The page header and the section title have also been switched, so that the page header is below the section title.
The colours of the site is different to the ones that i normally use
This style was inspired by i summon one kim – Kimmo Suominen
