As may be apparent, there are a couple of new pages on the site, including this blog. A few months ago I bought a website from Jonathan Levitt at www.websites4magicians.com – the first time I’d done such a thing. For years I used to write all my web pages in Notepad, and damn, didn’t it show.
I wanted to have a news page, and somewhere to show videos. This meant looking at Jonathan’s code (with his blessing, natch) and trying to replicate what he had done. This was not easy, but I think I made a decent stab at it. The headache came with the Media page, where the flash player decided to make a mess of things. After much messing around and a very useful screen dump from Damian Jennings I found the error and things seem to be up and running again.
For the marginally interested, Safari and FireFox both put in a pesky line break in the path to the video file, which meant that the player applet hung. I have no idea why they would do that.
Ho hum. Now I have to work out how to get playlists up…
