How do I do this simple HTML/image task?

I have a lot of images for a card game I'm working on. I want to put them on a single web page in printable form. Automatically, if possible - there are a LOT of images. (They're all in one directory, though.) Bonus points if the size of the images can be easily rescaled so they can fit the sizes of cards from other games (so they can be sleeved together, for instance.)

How do I make a very large image with clickable areas in an elegant way?

I have a large graphic (say, 20 screens' worth, vertically scrolling) that is full of text that needs the image to be viewed at full size to read. When putting this on a website, I'd like much of this text on the image to be clickable, i.e. linked. I'd prefer not to use the HTML map tag or Flash, and I'm no coder. Is there a web service that could make this easier? [more inside]

Help me learn old school web design

I have recently taken charge of an old webpage that is a bit out of date on a university server. I am primarily familiar with Google Sites and Wordpress, where there's a CMS editor, but here it's just an ftp site with raw index files that require Spry to run. What do I need to edit it? Would it be relatively easy to create a redirect to a site that I control running a CMS I understand? How do I keep that from ruining all the old backlinks?

No italics in Dolphin browser (android)

I use Dolphin as my default browser on my Samsung Galaxy S3. I've just noticed that italics don't show up in Dolphin. (Screenshot.) They do show up in the stock browser. (Screenshot.) I can't find a setting anywhere that indicates why the <em> tag isn't showing. Help? Here's the about screen for my phone, and for Dolphin, if those are helpful.

Rise from your grave!

I have webspace and a domain which is currently hosting a Wordpress blog -- an instance of WP running on the server, not a redirect -- on it that I haven't updated in a year. I want to use the domain to showcase my projects, past and present, and one of these projects is the current main blog. So I have a few logistics questions below the fold. [more inside]

New Tumblr music player code?

Tumblr recently switched out their flash-based music player with a new, more mobile-friendly one. That's good, except the new one is devastatingly ugly and has totally different proportions. I'm not even sure it's displaying correctly - the arrow is off-center, the text looks wonky. I have been trying in vain to find ways of fiddling with its attributes, but the ones exposed are very limited. Has anyone else noticed this problem with the look, and has anyone had any success in customizing it? [more inside]

Recommendations for a simple Web contact form?

Someone with a simple .HTML/.PHP page and no content management system needs me to put up a "Contact Us" form. In the old days there were a lot of PHP scripts to do this, but I can't tell if any of them are still reliable and secure. Are there any recommendations for one? I'm familiar with all the great ones for Wordpress (Gravity Forms, Contact Form 7) but unfortunately can't use those because this site has no database. [more inside]

user-scalable=wrong

On Android, is there a way in any of the available browsers to turn off honoring <meta name = "viewport" content = "initial-scale = x.x, user-scalable = no">? I'm sick of designers that don't want me to zoom in on their preciously designed mobile site.

HMTL tables

I'd like to make attractive html tables (and various kinds of graphs, charts, etc) for a wordpress blog, but I don't think like a programmer. Is there a program where I can manipulate the design elements like pictures instead of code? And then plug the information into the table cells and grab the code when it all looks like what I want?

My Gut Is Saying "Run" but My Brain is Scared

I posted this question a few months back but would like to... ask again with a little more details.

I'm a historic preservation graduate student, and after a whole year of freaking out about what I want in life, all I really want is a job that pays well, or an incredibly marketable skill.

HTML not supported

I am using Serif Webplus Free Edition to build a website. But I am unable to link the pages to each other as the built in site checker recommends. I can't generate .html or insert .html.

Enable Facebook Comments for mobile viewing in Google Blogger?

Is there a way to enable Facebook Comments Box for mobile viewing in Google Blogger? I used these instructions to enable Facebook comments on my blog. It worked out, but it's not showing up in the mobile view. This site discusses how to add a widget to the Blogger Mobile Template. The Facebook Comments Box is not exactly a widget. I imagine there's probably a solution to getting it to appear in the mobile view, similiar to this, but I don't know how to do it. Is there a way to add something like this (mobile='yes') to the plugin code?

Manually installing Disqus on Tumblr

I am having trouble manually installing Disqus on my Tumblr. The theme is Lines. When I follow the suggestions on Disqus' site, it causes the "# comments" part to all show up on the most recent post, rather than one link next to each post. So right now there are three "0 comments" links next to my most recent post. I'm not very familiar with HTML, and each place I've tried to put the code hasn't fixed the problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
