Windows 7

Vista is on its way out and windows 7 is set to replace it!

Windows 7 is due to be released in October (22nd) this year ahead of schedual. W7 will replace the much talked about vista operating system.

Many users had troubles with Vista especially upgraders – it remains to be seen what if any problems arise from the introduction of the new operating software.

The upside is – i read – that vista users will be able to upgrate for free.

Example shopping carts

Its hard to build a shopping cart if you dont sell any thing. Most of these examples have products for sale but i will not send you anything if you purchase something – lets treat it as a donation. It can be as little as £1.50. But in now way is this a requirement, the examples are simply to show how Microsoft access and expression web can work together to produce a simple shopping cart solution.

I goofed up!

Just a quick heads up. I made some updates a couple of weeks ago to our forum. Just basic formatting and SEO stuff really, However, in the process, i have some how messed up or forum index page in that the last post showing was months ago! So if you come direct into

The forum stats show as follows……

However, if you come in direct to a post or via the correct stats are shown – as of this post,

Our users have posted 21,223 Posts in 3,517 Topics in 21 Forum(s) Last Post; Today at 11:18pm By jimd We have 2,252 Forum Members The Newest Forum Member is Danchris

ASPX links not working?

An interesting post on our expression web forums asked how links in an aspx based web sites might not be working. Fortunately i had experienced the same issues with many of the aspx data driven sites i build.

One such site ,a mortgage, insurance and debt advice web site threw up exactly the same issues. For example if i wanted to view information on Cheap Car Insurance, the link would look like this

the trailing slash at the end finished the link but i just happen to have a default.aspx page in the folder cheap car insurance so the link actually looks like this…

In the case of an aspx which is driven by a master page, this is an issue to be aware of. In my case my master page was in the root of the web site and i used relative links that simply pointed to default.aspx! Wrong because if you are in a folder like the examples above, the link is simply looking for default.aspx. So no problem with the link then! Well no but it was navigating to the cheap car insurance folder default.aspx page

instead of the site default (root) which looks like this…

In the posters case, the same thing applies except in this case, the folder did not contain a default page so hence the error message – that the default.aspx could not be found.

So the lesson to learn is DONT use relative links and if you do make sure that you use a tilde (~) in front of the relative link example:

~/default.aspx this link looks for the root default.aspx page.

I actually went a different route. I used xml to build the above site and was able to make an absolute link by appending the the site address to the file name in the hyperlinks dialogue.

Hope you find this useful.
