So the case of the missing posts has inspired me to acutally finish the website and now everything works! The only thing I need to work on now is getting the earlier screeds into the database so they can be read (‘cuz I am NOT about to change all those html pages to match!) and Hubby is trying to convince me to add some other back end functionality to it like deleting comments and stuff, which could make my life easier if I could be bothered to do it.
Overall, right now I’m happy with this. I am aware it does NOT look the same in crappy ass IE, you don’t get the rounded corners on the text boxes and stuff. Maybe one day I’ll do the graphics that are needed to make it pretty for IE, but really, anyone who uses IE deserves to see ugliness. (No offense to any of you I like that use IE!)
