    First, you aren't early in thinking about your Christmas calendar. Any business who is planning on giving one out should have it ordered by Sept. 1.

    How many do you plan to print? And how...

    I'm a sign builder. Skinny stick fonts drive me nuts.

    I don't particularly dislike your logo though. Maybe Stick could use some beefing up. It sort of gets lost with the bottom-heavy words....

  • IE8/jQuery Not Playing Ball

    Code:
    $("#submitButton").click(function(){
      $.post("/dosomething.php",
             {action:"go",email:$("#email").val()},
             function(html){ alert(html); },
             "html");
      return false;
    })
    The 'dosomething.php' script returns '1' on success, or an error message on failure (for example, 'Invalid email address'.) However when the script is going to return '1' (ie. it succeeds) IE8 ignores the 'return false;' line and sends the visitor to the script directly... any ideas why this would be? Doesn't happen in anything else I've tested

    The only help I can offer is that you should be using the .submit() function on the form element, not a click function on the submit button.

    http://docs.jquery.com/Events/submit

    Other than that, I'm not really sure what you're doing. Why validate the form with PHP?

    There are loads of jQuery validation plugins (scripts) out there.

      Dah, sometimes I really should RTFM. That fixed the issue, all works perfectly now, thanks a lot

      (And I'm using PHP for compatibility; I'll add some pretty client-side validation later...)
