Basically i have been trying to get back into the web design industry after a some time away. I never used to be the best developer but i was ok.
Then out of the blue i get offered what seemed like a small project from an old employer, but it turns out to be a lot more complicated than i originally thought possible.
He wants on his clients site two buttons in the footer:
- Get in touch
- Sign up for emails
When you click one of these buttons he wants a modal dialog box to pop up in the middle of the screen with a form inside it.
I then have to validate the forms using PHP and submit the data to a database.
This has caused me nothing but problems. I have spent ages trying to get a pop up dialog box that works, I finally found one and it worked. Then i find out it does not work in IE6 which is important. So i am back to square one.
If i can sort out the pop up… then thats one stage done and i can get some help with the PHP (my attempts so far have utterly failed).
I have until tomorrow night to finish this or im going to lose the job and all the other work ive been offered (simpler work, basic html / css which i am very good at).
