Hello. I have fairly recently started a website www.ubereadoolische.com for the clubbing scene in my local area and have just done an interview with someone which I wanted to have ready today but I have problems.
I am still new to HTML5 and CSS3 so they are probably simple errors.
In decreasing order of importance my problems are:
- Half of the text does not appear in IE. I assume this is something to do with me using markers such as p5 which seems to work on Chrome but not IE.
- The pictures do not load on Firefox.
- The Facebook share link does not use the relevant photo at the top and uses one from the older separate feature on the page.
- The text after some of the links in the interview are going straight to a new line rather than just continuing in one sentence.
I could probably figure it out with enough time but I promised my interviewee that I would have it up today to help with their promotion so any advice appreciated – if only number 1 is resolved that would be satisfactory.
Any advice for a beginner would be much appreciated.

I've fixed all but number 3...and gosh they were dumb things.

Good for you James,
Sometimes all it takes is a little persistence. If you still can’t get the FB sharing plugin to work, try inserting a meta tag in the head of your page with the URL for the thumbnail you want to use. It should look like this,
<meta property="og:image" content="your_image_path" />
Hope that helps,

I just wanted to say, don't feel that way. Learning something new is done through baby steps, trial and error, especially coding. Be proud of yourself for getting a domain up and running with HTML/CSS, and for listening to good music!

Yes you are right. Thanks. And the music is amazing
