Problem with DVR Cards

Last week, I spent almost a week just to try to figure it out how to make DVR cards work with my computer. Since I found that there are a lot of DVR cards (Digital Video Recorder cards???) available in the market. Most of them can only work with Pentium-4 computer system. The problem is that it's quite difficult to find a new computer that has Pentium-4 in it. I called many resellers just to ask them if their cards can work with newer computer system such as Celeron-D, Pentium-D, etc. One reseller said anything with Intel chipset motherboard and ATI display adapter will work.

Know Base Path function for Drupal with Multilanguage (i18n version 2.1)

My problem was that I want imagefield that user can click in Teaser view, then, bring user into the node. (Default without contemplate, the click will do nothing. By clicking at the title is the only option.) By wring the code in contemplate, there are 3 parts that I need to do. 1. A function to get Basepath (Ex.www.bxtra.net) 2. A function to get i18n path (Ex.en, fr, etc.) 3. A function to get node that the link will go to. It will end up like this -> http://www.bxtra.net/en/node/4

Driver problem for Scanning function with HP Laserjet 3055

Category:

I got HP Laserjet 3055 All-in-one a while ago and it works flawlessly. I can do a network scan from the printer itself to automatically save to a specific computer after scan. That's to initiate the scan from the printer. (Some people said this printer doesn't support that function but it does work for me.) I think I can also do a network fax if I want. (There is a fax printer listed but this is not what I want from this printer.

HTML Background color goes Blue

Category:

I got a problem trying to change background color to transparent or something else but when I was trying to do that, the area I needed to do that goes Blue. This occured only with Firefox but no IE. So, I searched for information and found that it's something in the BODY. Since I used mainly TABLE, I have to put

 style="background:transparent"

together with TABLE tag. By trying to put it in TD, or leave it out didn't solve the problem.

HTML Transparent (opacity)

Category:

I've tried to work on transparent CSS. I put all 3 types of opacity setting below : - filter: alpha(opacity='70'); - -moz-opacity: 0.7; - opacity: 0.7 With opacity setting, it works fine with Firefox. However, I couldn't make the same code to work with IE 6 and 7. Then, I searched online and found the following page -> http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Talk:Spry#Spry.Effects.Opacity I just followed what they suggested which is to put width and height as below : style="opacity: 0.5; width: 100%; height: 100%; filter:alpha(opacity=50);"

Lightbox v2 bug

I found 2 modules that I want to play with my drupal. Those are Lightbox v2 and Thickbox. I installed both module at the same time and then, I ran into the problem of using contemplate to change some template setting. I couldn't create template because the box that shows "Affect Body/Teaser output" didn't show up. It showed only what I already have done. But not what I plan to make a new one. (That included if I unchecked that "Affect Body/Teaser output". After save, it was gone.)

Sound Driver for Vista - HP Notebook, Conexant (Waikiki)

It took HP many months after Windows Vista is official release to get a beta sound driver for Conexant Waikiki chipset to work. If anyone looks for it, just check this forum -> http://forum.notebookreview.com/announcement.php?f=3&a=15 To check if you have Conexant Waikiki or Venice chipset. Check hardware ID in device manager. If it shows DEV_5047, then, you got Waikiki chipset, if it's DEV_5045, then, you got Venice chipset.

Problem with Imagefield Module 1.1 (CCK 1.4 and 1.5)

It's really annoying and almost lead me to change to use other CMS. I'm trying to upload a picture into Imagefield. It's like everytime I uploaded my picture, sometime it showed up correctly, sometime nothing showed up, but then, after I submited that page, the picture went away. That took me to try to upload one picture in a page for almost an hour.

How to handle of too short Title in Drupal

It took me a while to look for what I can do to handle longer title. Here is what I did to solve the problem :

Using PHPMyAdmin, in the database under tables"Node" and "Node_revisions", you will find field "Title" with varchar set for 128. Just increase that size. Or you can change datatype to "Text".

This shouldn't be the problem for English only website but this could be a problem for any website running in other languages.
