    hello…

    css is a tool that lets you assign styles to your website elements – for example, you can make all your page headers…

    <span class=”pageHeader”>My Header</span>

    green and bold in a style sheet declaration:

    .pageHeader {
    font-weight: bold;
    color: #00dd00;
    }

    css either sets styles for classes (like above – all elements with the class attribute of “pageHeader” will be affected) or ids, which are single elements:

    <span id=”thisElementOnly”>Some Text</span>

    you can apply styles to just about any html tag, and the purpose is to make it easier for you to develop. you can embed styles in a page, or (and this is much more to their purpose), you can create an external css style sheet and have all pages reference it.

    i highly recommend this site for learning css and other html stuff:

    give it a shot and let me know if you have any questions!

    hello…

    ya – unfortunately it is a rather broad question, just because i’m not sure what you need to learn – cgi? javascript? design? basic html? usability? database?

    the world of web is equally as big as the world of video, so the best thing i can suggest is to learn the web in the same way that you learned video…there are a ton of books out there, or you can learn online for free, but unfortunately there’s no magic bullet to learning web stuff…

    if you are a book person, try o’reilly (https://www.oreilly.com/) – good solid books on a variety of technical subjects that might help you out…

    hello…

    you are asking a lot of questions about very mile-high concepts here (technique, usability, design, standards, etc.), so it’s very hard to answer, but i can try some specifics…

    you don’t need any special server to host flash – so that’s not an issue. you can do your entire site in flash, but it becomes impossible for search engines to index and people to bookmark anything specific in it, and it is generally considered a no-no (or if you do a full flash version, make sure that you also do an accompanying html version and make a visible link to let engines and people find it).

    css is cascading style sheets. if you do the site in html, you should definitely use css, and if you are using a later version of the flash software for development, you can let flash movies use css as well. xml is a markup language that is primarily used for data sharing, so it depends. things like asp, jsp, php, etc. are scripting languages that allow for the dynamic creation of content and db-connected sites, etc…

    i hope that answers some of your questions at least – if you have specific follow-ups then please don’t hesitate to ask!

    hello…

    you’ve got a js error that is fatal to non-ie browsers – you can debug this by opening firefox and typing this (note trailing colon):

    javascript:

    into the location window – then leave the resulting popup open and load your page – you’ll see the error message come up and you can use that to debug and resolve the issue…

    hope that helps!

    hello…

    f12 should do the trick as well… 🙂

    hello…

    in that case, you need to pass a get parameter to the 2nd page that tells it what page to load, and then parse parameter either with javascript (less reliable) or make all your pages a server side script page like php or jsp or asp or the likes…

    the first page link would be something like:

    [a href=”page2.html?isrc=software.html”]page 2[/a]

    and then page 2 would parse that passed parameter and show the proper iframe source using the above code, or even simpler would just be to make the iframe source the isrc param directly…

    i don’t know if such a change is feasible on your site – again, you can parse the parameter and extract it using javascript on page 2, but if the user has javascript disabled (and some do for paranoia reasons), then your system won’t work…but php or a server-side language can easily read parameters:

    $_GET[“isrc”]

    so it’d be much easer to grab that parameter. but if you are not comfortable with converting your site to use a scripting language, then i could make a mockup of the javascript concept for you…

    hello…

    [eyecamiam] “As set unchecked: The Imovie icon turns to a folder with a red negative under other accounts. However, it opens anyway. I will try all this on another computer.”

    if you have it to read access for others or the group, then they can open (i.e. read it) – if you set it to no access, they should not even be able to open it or do anything in it at all…

    hello…

    i don’t have an external drive on my mac, so i cannot currently do any testing on this to verify, but yes – apply to all enclosed items if you want to and no – order doesn’t matter…

    and ignore should not be checked if you want to follow this model of individual permissions on each file on the drive…

    hello…

    [eyecamiam] “On this particular computer, I have the following user accounts:
    P1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P6, and my account which is the only admin account, teacher.

    So if I have an Imovie folder on an external drive and I want to assign it to be read only by and written to only by P1”

    in this case, you would set the owner permissions to full “read/write”, the group permissions for staff would be either “read” or “no access” (depending on how secure you want to be) and the “others” would just be “no access”…that should in theory get you where you need to go if you have that other ignore ownership checkbox set correctly…

    hello…

    without knowing your specific user and groups settings, it’s hard for me to say…but the overall user and group permissions in os x are explained very nicely here:

    https://www.osxfaq.com/Tutorials/LearningCenter/AdvancedUnix/ugp/index.ws

    basically each file has an owner, group and “everybody else” setting – most likely, all your users are in one of 2 groups – staff or admin. if you set something to be visible to just you and your group, most everybody will still be able to see it…therefore, you’d want to just make the file owner the only one that can see the file. to add a further wrinkle, there is read, write and execute, but it’s probably best to just peruse the above article and see if that makes it any less confusing…note that it does focus on actual unix commands instead of gui controls, but the concepts in there are in the permissions dialog, so it should help make it all make a bit more sense…
