Good web design forum???

I'm a noob web design major and I'm looking for a forum to go to when I have weird wacky problems that I could use advice on.

It seems odd that I'm asking advice on this but i feel like so many of these forums I find on google might not be the best and it would actually be better to just ask by word of mouth.

If you're having problems with something then stack overflow. For ideas and articles there are plenty like noupe and psdtuts.

Yea def stackoverflow. Are you looking for help in actual design or in front-end development?

Yeah, then definitely stackoverflow - make sure you include all necessary tags in your posts so more people can see it. (HMTL, CSS, Javascript, etc...)

Also, (though not endorsed by the W3C itself) W3Schools has some pretty useful tutorials. A lot of developers shun the site however since it isn't associated with the W3C and has a few tutorials that use bloat code. However, I find it a good resource and reference from time to time.

I've never done anything with swfobject but can you not just wrap it in a div and show/hide the div?

hmm, when you call the startNewPuzzle function and use:

swfobject.removeSWF("myytplayer");

it completely kills the initialized SWF it seems like. Like natty said, you could put the call to embed the SWFObject into a separate div and utilize like a flipper.

Looking at the API (I haven't messed with SWF either in a while) it seems like it will only re-initialize on a refresh. What happens if you re-register the object after you kill it in your startNewPuzzle function?

I tried putting a div(for the video) outside the div(image) that holds my images but when the removeSWF object executes it removes everything inside the div(video) as well as the div(video) itself.

At first I made the swfObject equal to my variable hangPicElement and the ID for the embedSWF object was picID but that would take everything out.

The show/hide div thing sounds like it might work I don't think we learned that much we just learned enough html/css to not be totally helpless then went into js
