Re: Firmware 3.00

It's all about getting yourself projects. This site is one such project for me - i've just got a new website contract for a similar style of site, I wouldn't have been able to accept it had I not spent the last few months teaching myself how to write this site... smile

Re: Firmware 3.00

Phil!
I'm working on a website right now, and i was wondering if there is a way of refreshing some content without refreshing the whole site?

Re: Firmware 3.00

Um, not quite sure what you mean - can you not just upload the individual files? What's the website written in?

Re: Firmware 3.00

It's in HTML, and i have a flash-based menu with a jukebox in the upper part, and it takes a while to load it and when you go to other part of the site, the flash aplication reloads and the music starts again. Is it possible to refresh the lower part of the page? Like, split the page in two parts? i dunno how to explain that...

Re: Firmware 3.00

ah i see what you mean. You can do it with Frames - http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_frames.asp

Re: Firmware 3.00

Search engines and alternative browsers don't always like frames though... I would suggest using a div element. It takes some js to use that... I guess I'll have to look it up because I don't remember it too well sad

Re: Firmware 3.00

True, but then only the really old browsers don't like frames, and those same browsers won't like javascript either. Such a minority of people use browsers with no support for frames that it's not really worth worrying about to be fair. As for search engines - if the top frame only has a flash header (which can't be spidered by most search bots yet) then does it matter if it's not spidered? The rest of the pages, with the text links, should be...

On the whole, I agree - i don't like frames and do avoid them if i can. Your suggestion about using js to change the display of divs is fine if all the divs contain only text, but if they contain more, then the page will take quite a long time to load, as all the content will be preloaded. And the js you'd need is to change the css style="display:none;" on and off. I'm guessing that's what you mean anyway.

A third suggestion if you don't want to use frames or js is to simply have the audio button bring up a popup window with a player in. You could even get the popup to pop-up in the background. Then the music won't be stopped when you change the main page...

Re: Firmware 3.00

so, the code must look something like this:

Code:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
     <TITLE>
          somewebsitename 
     </TITLE>
</HEAD>
         
<FRAMESET  cols="290,*" frameborder="no" border="0">    
<FRAME SRC="menu.html" SCROLLING="AUTO" MARGINHEIGHT=6
 name=menu>
      
  <FRAME SRC="main.html" SCROLLING="AUTO" marginheight=8  name=dictmain marginwidth="10">
</FRAMESET>

<NOFRAMES>
<center>    
<h2>You need to Install Netscape 3.0 or Microsoft Explorer 3.0 and come back dumbass.</h2>
</center>
</NOFRAMES>

</HTML>

Re: Firmware 3.00

I'm not sure what you want it to look like, but it seems ok. Test the page on different resolutions. If you want it to look good with all resolutions, you might have to change that 290 to a certain percent of the screen rather then the width in pixels. Don't worry about that too much though, these are just two columns.

Re: Firmware 3.00

Looks good to me, only a couple of small things:

I always quote all of my attributes, so name=dictmain would be name="dictmain"

If you're writing in XHTML 1.0, you need to close all of your tags, so make your <FRAME attributes here> tags self closing, ie. <FRAME attributes here />

Re: Firmware 3.00

well... does this update mean that a loop hole in 2.82 was found? Do I have any hope on playing SNES emus? Also did any one ever make a downgrade FROM 2.82? I really want to play homebrew.

Re: Firmware 3.00

The last version works on 2.8
Nothing for 2.82. I think the smartest thing to do for you is to upgrade to 3.0 - it has more "holes" for hacking, so software will be coming soon. Allso, you will get all the features of the 3.00 fw

Re: Firmware 3.00

god damnit, when I upgraded this morning, whats wierd is that I got 3.02.
Two more releases! What the hell? =[

I wish I didnt upgrade, the security thing for flash really sucks =/
Now I have to say yes for each and every page. They better have an option to turn that off next release or I will start a petition or something.... Anyone with me?

There are plenty of websites that will let you downgrade if you just simply google search it, but alot of them are viruses that will permanently turn off your psp. Plus psp doesn't support internet downloads or downgrading, so I never risked it.

Ofcourse this may be untrue, I just read it on some website, if you want to downgrade try psphacks.com, they have alot of dowwnloads for the psp.
