  1. Thanks!!! It works , you are really helpful.

    For the Java Script Validation:
    I'm using "user_tp" instead of "my_name"

    Thanks again

  2. ohh yes it's mistake ...
    now it's corrected

  3. I cannot find a way to get in touch with you. I added the google component and cannot figure out how to edit the info that is in the pop up bubble when you click on the pointer in the map

  4. Good work…unique site and interesting too… keep it up…looking forward for more updates.
