    Default Windows Theme

    Just messin' around today and an idea popped in my head (not always good ). I designed an OS (windows) type feel for a webpage, completely PHP.

    Check it out:
    (sorry, link deleted)

    I can't quite configure the titles though, they seem to be giving me a headache.

    I like it as it is now, but it would be a little bit better if you had the title of the page (item) being displayed in the top porton of the page (in the div where the close image is.) Then, you could probably make it a tad bit better by using AJAX.

    But as is, still good!

    Warning: file_get_contents(1.php) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/export/www/hosting/mburt/projects/windows/index.php on line 98
    I get that error on everypage (with the exception of the filename in the file_get_contents() part).

    Looking good, but it seems to be missing something. Not sure what, but it just seems to be missing something. Maybe someone else may have some suggestions to add to it.

    Yeah, I had looked at it earlier and there were errors in FF and Opera. Now it seems to be hitting on all cylinders. If nothing else, this sort of thing is a great exercise in web design, honing your skills.
