It's for my website HARTandYVONNE.com ..

While I am using a stylesheet it's not created that well (that i'm able to globally change my site at will by changes in my .css file). I created my site a few years back and now want to revamp it in 2004. I think I figured out a way for me to do that - by me constantly updating it with new drivel..

So - I want to keep track of all the movies I watch during 2004 and give my opinion of it, the best parts, worst parts, and quick recommendation, and link to others' movie reviews. I envision some sort of blog-type forum that allows users to also post reviews and comments of my reviews, or their own. I don't want it sorted by date but alphabetically, where a top select menu can enable surfers to jump to the i.e. "W" section right away, or even enter a search string and be transported ....

The catch? Without leaving my site, or opening too many windows? Is this possible?

If there is a template or javascripting or .php script or something out there that someone wants to share, i'd certainly be greatful.

HART aka PapillonLvr.

Greetings... Looking for a template page to review movies..

One you will need a php script to make it easy. the easiest one I can think of to install and uses php and mysql is www.pMachine.com

once you get that going adding movies should be even easier. you have a blurb, body, more, and 3 extended fields so you can make the site work however you want. say the blurb is for your short plot once over the body is for the more indepth teaser or opening paragraph and the more is your review. one extended is a img of the poster and another is for a star rating system.

** there are a number of ways to do the alphabet sorting, one of the easiest would be create categories that are A B C D etc. or hack up a display script if you decide to make the movie title a separate field.

I had one setup but using Moveable Type and I used the nested css layout for the review itself. http://glish.com/css/1.asp

The review title and the review were in the left side while the movie title, poster, star rating, and apple.com trailer link was in the right nested menu.

I wish I could show you an example but I lost my stuff in a computer transition. I am new here but not to web design, however new to css and how it works in other browsers (one reason I didn't think about css earlier in life) but I hope to be a bit more helpful.
