Here’s another helpful post for beginners in how to access element values inside an iframe.

var txt = window.frames["iframeName"].document.forms["formName"].elements["elementName"].value;

Tip:  To avoid confusion, your page elements should have the same Id and Name.

WordPress and PHPlist

Published by under Web Development on Tuesday, February 24th, 2009 at 1:19 pm

I was losing my mind earlier looking for the solution to my problem. I installed PHPList to my client’s web host (root directory). The installation started very easy but when I tried to access the admin page for the final configuration I was getting a bunch of page not found from IE and firefox.

As usual, I went to Google and looked at each significant search results. An hour passed and another hour passed, I can’t make it work using those solutions posted in WordPress forums as well as in other techie blogs.  I almost lost my hope to make it work  until I came across this blog http://zebrahost.net/zblog/?cat=11.  Yes! It did the trick! I first thought it’s in WordPress .htaccess overriding PHPList .htaccess. Wheeew!

The fix requires commenting out line 12 in the htaccess file which is located in the root directory of the PHP List script. All that was needed was to add a # before the line reading php_flag magic_quotes_gpc on

Darn that #! It took me 2 hours to solve it. I hope this post will help others having this problem too.

web developmentI’ve been seeing a lot of this question over the online forums. Even me, tried searching the prerequisites of becoming a “webmaster” as others used to call it. But if you’ll really dig down deep, you’ll discover that it’s not really that simple to be regarded as one. It will cost you a lot of blood, sweat, and hardship, which means that you have to include PATIENCE and PERSEVERANCE into your virtue!

First, we have to understand what a web developer means as well as a web designer. Most often, these term are considered the same where in fact they are distinctively different.

A web developer is responsible for programming the functionality of a web site. Usually the web developer figures out how it is going to do it and then writes the necessary programming code. Much of this programming code is behind the scenes and not visible to the user. However, a web developer may also be responsible for the code that the user sees. This is the HTML/DHTML and JavaScript that make up most of the web pages you interact with in your web browser.
