I was hoping a few experienced developers here might take a look at my website

Benny's Place featuring Louise English and Hill's Angels

I built this site for fans. I am fortunate enough to have a friend supplying a free webspace so bandwidth and space are not an issue. I use to be on geocities, but things just seemed to get worse there.

At any rate I do use CSS and I have even added the hollyhack. I have tested the site in IE6, Opera, Netscape and Mozilla. I haven't seen it in Safari for a while so I'm not sure about the way it will look there.

I am using some javascript to import my links into pages for ease of updating links and I have the drop down links from A List Apart.

I am using a two column layout as this seems to be the simplest and easiest to work with. I am also using safe colors throughout.

All opinions are welcome and appreciated.

Everyone have a great holiday.

First time here and my site

Louise English is my favorite Hill's Angel. Laughing out loud

Any Benny Hill website gets an A+ in my book. I will read the reviews soon!

The design is retro and kind of Frontpage-ish. So-so. It could use a bit of fit and finish perhaps.

That sounds like a bad idea. What if (which just happens to be the case right now) I have javascript disabled?

Perhaps you should look into server side includes or php includes. If the server is php enabled then php includes is simple.

my site

very good point. I was looking into SSI but I don't think my webspace will allow it. I've never even met the guy. He doesn't own it but he pays for it. And he knows very little about it. Don't the majority of people use Java anyway?

Thanks for looking it over. How does the site measure up otherwise? Anything else that could be problematic with browsers and such?

php and ssi

Actually, is there anyway I can tell if my space allows for php and ssi? Do i always need a cgi-bin? Can I mess up his web space?

Any info or help in this area would be appreciated.

Thanks,

You won't need to have any kind of cgi-bin, but if you want an easy way to test ASP includes (I'll let someone more familiar with PHP to weigh in on that), just make a file called test.asp. In that file have the following code:

<!-- #include file="file.html" -->

Then in file.html, have some code that will display. If your server supports ASP includes, going to test.asp should display as if the code in file.html was included. If you get a blank page or an error, your server probably doesn't support ASP includes.

php test

If you want to test if php is installed and running on your server, create a file called test.php with the following contents-

<?php 
echo("PHP Installed");
?>

If you see all of the source code, php is not properly enabled. If all you see is a white page with "PHP Installed" (or whatever you put in between the quotes in teh echo funtion argument) then php is running and parsing the documents properly

No, java for the web is majorly outdated. The applet tags are deprecated.

I set up the following pages

http//www.runstop.de/bennysplace/file.html
http//www.runstop.de/bennysplace/test.php

I don't think I am supported by .asp or .php. You can see for yourself if I did it right or not.

Muzishun, is that asp or ssi?

threerandot, to check for ssi, make a copy of your test.asp file, called test.shtml and remove the space between before the "#".

e.g.<!--#include file="file.html" -->

fyi - this seems to be your webhost http://www.strato.de/webhosting/index.html

ASP has the same ssi syntax as .shtml files.
