    Your client is not making sense. He needs to tell you what printer he is working with and you talk to the printer. I refuse to do jobs that I don't know where they are getting printed. If I don't talk...

    Well, as a graphic designer redeyesi probably doesn't have any influence on that, unless s/he is the inventor as well .

    I hate to be "that guy" but is this really a product that is needed? I can tell you six different products that do the same thing right off the top of my head. I own two of them.

  • Creating an email link in HTML

    I'm trying to convert some type within my page into an email link.
    I have the code but it's not working.
    I've tried taking the code and type out of it's original place and putting it on it's own in a new document. And it works.
    So I'm thinking the reason why it's not working may have something to do with it being within a class i have created when styling the page.
    Any idea why this is???

    Just incase you need it, here's the code;

    email: <a href="mailto:info@placeyoursite.co.uk?subject=Plac e Your Site Information">info@placeyoursite.co.uk</a>

    Thanks, Tom

      The code as you've written it here is correct. Whatever the problem is, it must be somewhere else. Incorrectly nested tags or missing out the closing > on a tag could possibly cause it.

        just gone through the code and there is nothing missing.
        However, I've noticed that when i remove the class from it, it works. But obviously it isn't displayed how i want it to be.
        Any idea why this may be happening?
        Surely it has something to do with the class?

              haha, well I don't know why this worked, but I just removed the class that was applied to the link, and the link then worked. Not sure why this worked but it did

                That makes no sense as the style has nothing to do with the functionality. do you mind posting your style?
