Excuse me if I'm being really dim here. It has been known. Laughing out loud

Noticed there are some really useful articles hosted on csscreator.com such as http://www.csscreator.com/attributes/containedfloat.php. However I have only noticed this because of links made in posts.

I'm sure there must be more useful stuff like this but can't find an index of these articles. When I went to http://www.csscreator.com/attributes/ I found a handy browser suport grid for attributes - I didn't know this exited either.

It seems to me there are some fantastic resources hosted here. However there is little indication of their existance and no easy way to navigate to them.

Would it be possible to put together a site map or quick index of all the resources. I for one would find it really helpful and it might also help prevent the same questions being asked over and over again.

Thanks for all the hard work that has gone into the site. It has become my primary resource and point of departure in my getting to grips with CSS and it's real world application.

Cheers, Max

Where is the index for articles?

There is a list of useful links here

http://www.csscreator.com/links/linkspage.php

The link to this is on the home page.

It's not what you do it's the way that you do it.
So do it with STYLE

hey Stu,

I do know about this page it's even linked at the bottom of each forum page. I'm not quite that dim Wink . However it seems to be all off site links. What I'm looking for is links for the content hosted on csscreator.com itself.

Cheers, Max

Where is the index for articles?

Hi Max,
A long time ago on this forum there were discussion about writing articles.
Unfortunately, due to lack of interest the idea never got off the ground.

Maybe sometime in the future I will have some time available to write other articles or maybe someone else will be keen to write some for us.

To get something like that going I would have to be prepared to do most or all of the work myself and I just don't have the time.

The css properties list is another example of something where a few did the work of many for the benefit of many.
There's still more I'd like to do to it and when time is available I will finish it off and make it more accessible.
For now it sits in the nearly completed basket while i'm weaving another basket for the should have been done long ago stuff. :roll:

I do appologise Wink

Only the http://www.csscreator.com/attributes/ is listed in the linkspage.

But I do agree that an index of useful articles would be nice.

To make it easier on Tony, and his vast weaving of baskets! Tongue Links could be directed to forum threads with educational-informative-tutorial like properties. This would ease on the need for a separate area for articles. Just a simple page of links to the relevant threads.

The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false. Discuss...

I'm not trying to be pushy and distract Tony from his basket weaving. Actually I like co2's idea of using the forum. How about a sticky thread restricted to moderators with links to articles and useful threads. Should make it quick and simple to keep updated.

Cheers, Max

Hi guy's,
I like the idea, so I can add it to my next basket Wink
There seem to be three options:
1. have a sticky list of the most useful articles or posts.
2. Move them to the common questions section (that's sort of what it was designed for)
3. develop a way for moderators to flag certain posts which then get automatically added to a new box down the side.

Maybe 3 can come later.
1. could be implemented now we just need to make a post sticky and lock it.
2. is already happening just needs to be cleaned up and refined.
We could move the topic up to the top and clean it out then start adding to it.

What do you guys think.

Not fussy on the stickies. I feel they always get in the way of the top-new posts on a forum.

Maybe one sticky at the top of the forum, updated occasionally, with listings of the new topics in the Common Questions forum.
