WOTS THAT THEN ?
« on: May 12, 2003, 07:14:31 PM »
I was in two minds about doing this as I didnt think it was right to advertise this kind of thing on the forum but Klaus told me it was Ok,so here goes..

After nearly 2 years work and numerous stops and starts I am pleased to announce that finally I have a working website selling collectable vinyl & cd's  :twisted: The site covers most music with over 1200 artists & 50,000 + items. I have some TV/Adverts items,not as many as I'd like (sorry TJ,no Sleaze or Cheap  :wink: ) and many more rare vinyl & cd's covering pretty much everyone I can think of. (and some I cant  8O )

If your interested in taking a look you'll find us at http://www.vinyladdiction.net
Of course I would like your comments on the design of the site and if it works OK and if you find something you want even better  :lol:

Of course this wouldnt have worked without the efforts of the fantastic Mr Fleagle over the last 6 months to bring everything together. (I am after all a bit of an Amateur at this website lark  :wink: ) If any of you are thinking of setting up a website I urge you to speak to Fleags before you sign up for anything and go waste your money  :!:

Lastly,(this one's for you Klaus),as a loyal fan of TV and his music I would be more than happy to stick a large banner advertising this site on my home page. If you can rustle up something suitable Klaus let me know.

Dont forget to leave your comments on the site  :)

MANY THANKS ALL       HOBGOBLIN   :twisted:

I like the navigation very much. Am I right that the page is optimized for 1024*768? It looks not so good with 1280*1024  8) because the background picture starts again on the right side (hope you understand what I mean).

One solution would be to use a center frame that has the width of 1024 pixel or a table with 3 columns and the cell in the middle has got the width of 1024 pixel.

this picture is not working: http://www.vinyladdiction.net/Band%20Images/beatles28.jpg (should be the link to the videos)
the "contact us" page is also not working.

so far for the first look...

Thanks Lari & Hosenfan  :lol:

Knew there would be some errors I missed  :cry:

Firstly answer to your question Lari :- Hard work,perseverance and very,very early mornings at car boot sales. 8O  Though nowadays I have other sources for material that doesnt mean such early hours. However will have to go back to the car boot sales if things take off  :?

To your questions Hosenfan:- Sorry screen optimised for lowest setting of 800 x 600. Type face is quite small to fit so much info on to the screen so would look much to small at 1024 x 768 on a 17" monitor. Thats why mothing is lined up. Either you've got a very large screen  8O or very good eye-site  8O  8O  :!:
Page is made up of layers rather than frame or tables which allows for better positioning and is also not memory intensive but this does have the drawback of display changes. Cant really get round this one unless i ditch the whole site and start again  :idea:

As to the missing Beatles pic....thanks will sort that out now and I am also aware of the Contact button not working. For some reason this Flash button doesnt not want to hyperlink direct to e-mail so this will be replaced shortly. Hopeful that will leave the site relatively correct until someone finds another missing bit of the jigsaw  :roll:

Thanks for the time and trouble to both of you.

okay, i took another look today and there are really masses of great records - i'm still frozen by bewilderment 8O

by the way: is there a discount for tuts :?:


one comment: it would be great if there would be a word- or pdf-document with the recent offers you can download and read in peace or print


(dear children, please don't try that at home-drinking is no solution!)

Yeh sorry Lari its a bit overwhelming I know  8O and it took me bloody ages to get the database ready to display on web pages as well  :(

The whole database is in microsoft Excel so can zip this and e-mail it to you if you like. Had no plans to send the entire database like this but was planning to e-mail new stock to customers that requested it. There is still 10,500 new items to be added yet :roll:

The answer to discount is YES  :!: I would be prepared to offer a 10% discount to TUTS that would be interested in purchases.

By the way I really like the new animated men  :P

HOBGOBLIN :twisted:

P.S. Klaus,ready when you are  :wink:

would be great if you could e-mail me the list - i guess it will take me ages to skim through all the items, because i do not really know what i'm serching for :D

10,500 new items to be added



well, actuallly the discount-thing wasn't ment serious...and 10% is quite a lot - are you sure that you want to do that :?: not that you go bankrupt in a few months

I'm going to e-mail the complete database to you as a zipped file. I trust you've got Excel to open it....most people have.

Where are you getting those clever images from  :?:  they work really well with your messages and made me laugh  :D

Ta mate  :wink:

if you wan't to know where the picture is from you just have to right click on it and then in the context menu the point on the bottom (don't know what it's called in english)...must be something like attitude or characteristics. There you see the URL from the picture. For example http://www.kurts-smilies.de/closed.gif. So the picture is from http://www.kurts-smilies.de.

here you have some more:

8O Wow :!:

I must say that I am very impressed with your site PK. I'm afraid that when you used to tell me about it I just couldn't imagine how could it would look. No wonder it took ages :D

Rest assured I'll be buying some CD's from you  :D  

Err :? Do I remember you saying that you had Sleaze for sale :wink:  :lol:

Great set up PK..............

Thanks TJ......except I found out this morning that the site wasnt working  :x
Spoke to Fleagle and then guy at the hosting service and basically it boiled down to the company running the Servers changing the ip address of the server my site was on because they were being hacked into. Apparently this happens all the time (lots of hackers out there  :roll: ) and internet businesses just accept it as a normal thing now  :!:
Problem was they change the address and didnt tell anyone prats  :!:
Site has been moved to a temporary server under new address:
http://va.dm3.co.uk

It will take about approx 2 more days until anyone can access the site under the old web address http://www.vinyladdiction.net

In the meantime you will have to use the temporary address to get in. :cry: This is a major pain  :evil: but something i have to live with at the moment.

And IF I had "Sleaze" TJ do you think I would'nt keep it for myself  :twisted:

HOBGOBLIN :twisted:

P.S. I've got a bit of TV gossip that I cant mention openly,but I'll send you a PM  :wink:
