Erm...asking for help is one thing. Blatantly stealing someone else's code is another. Did you even bother to get permission from o_87 before using exactly the same menu design? That's just sad...

I'm starting to wonder...was that intro flash animation stolen from somewhere too? :rolleyes:

ugh... you gotta be kidding me

That's so horribly lame... stealing code like that. And it's not like he just lifted a little bit of code because he liked one of the ideas... He just jacked your entire site design without any permission or mention of where he got the idea... lame, lame, lame. I came up with my site design all by myself... It's not particularly flashy or anything, but it gets the job done and it works in pretty much any browser that I can tell. Needless to say, because it was all my doing, I can say I'm rather proud of it. I don't see how you can feel good about jacking someone's site and claiming it as your own.

I agree - if you really want ideas, there are many free sites around with coding examples that you can use - its bad to lift. Remember, winners don't do site lifting

If you have the cash its worth getting hold of Webstyle and fooling with that to create a unique look.

He's only learning, give him a break. Every1 lifts code when they start to learn all the ins and outs.

yeah give him a lil break ;) he saw something he liked + so "acuired" the code for it, it's a great way to start as he can now break it down + understand it more before re-designing it for his own use. much quicker + easyer than starting with a blank page :p

Sorry, but I don't agree with that. There are several sites that provide excellent tutorials on HTML/CSS coding. I even pointed out w3schools.org earlier in this thread, which is a great resource for people just starting out with web design. I know several people who had the patience to actually look through the tutorials and create good sites even though it was the first time they were doing it. So don't tell me everyone lifts code when they start to learn. That's the lazy way of going about things. Besides, if you really have to blatantly copy code, you should at least have the decency to ask the original author before using it.

In any case, I'm done with this thread...

true hwe should have asked to use it, + never put the code online to pass as his own.

@Prodj88: You should not blatantly steal someone elses design.

I can understand downloading a HTML design, and the ripping it apart on your local system to see how its put together, but dont take and then put up on the web. Sorry I just had to get that in.

All queries directed to a new thread please

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
