Hi guys,

I have just finished validating my XHTML Trans site and need a site check.

http://www.employsa.com.au

I have been having a few issues with my Flash Banner not displaying. On some pages the container is moving when you click a new page.

Can anyone tell me if they are having any problems on their machine?

I have refreshed my cache several times and refreshed the server so maybe I just need to kill my HD and start over Smile

Another Site Check : Employ SA

The site looks fine in FF and IE/Win...except for the flash banner. Have you double checked to make sure it is linked to the right folder?

The only thing I saw that needs to be changed is what came up with the CSS validation:

Quote:
* Line: 282 Context : .floatright2

Invalid number : margin-top Too many values or values are not recognized : 0 1em 0 0
* Line: 288 Context : .floatright3

Invalid number : margin-top Too many values or values are not recognized : 0 3em 0 0
* Line: 294 Context : .floatrightlogos

Invalid number : margin-top Too many values or values are not recognized : 0 8em 0 0

Other than that...looks good. Clean design. Easy to navigate. Smile

In Safari the flash-thing is positioned under the logo, this way covering the whole nav.
Two thoughts on this: maybe you have to add the margins to the width of either container or top.
Secound: a float:left or :right maybe good. That just helped me preventing objects from breaking away into the next line.

Hope this helps ...?

@ ragamuffin

Thanks for pointing that out, I forgot that you have to validate the CSS too :oops:

I fixed the floats, had 'margin-left' instead of 'margin'

I have been having that problem with the header in FF and Safari.

I will try playing around with the margins first, but floating left and right could work too Laughing out loud

I tried that yesterday and had a few probs so will play with the margins first

I have problems accessing your links in FF. I can only get the last 2 to work. Flash isn't displaying in either FF or IE.
Also, your bullet points down the left look like they should be links.
And your 'quick links' boxes move in towards the centre of the page when you resize the text.

Here is my flash code

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="movie.swf" width="582" height="124" wmode="transparent" ><param name="movie" value="moviet.swf" />
  <embed src="http://www.employsa.com.au/images/banner.swf" width="582" height="124"></embed>
  <p>You do not have the flash plug-in installed. If you would like to view this site you will need to go <a href="" title="">download the flash plug-in</a>.</p></object>

Do you mean the ones with the 'Employ SA' logo next to them?

When you say the quick links boxes move to the centre when the text is changed, do you mean when you change it is CSS or using your browser some how?

Links I can't access in FF are: 'about us' 'job seekers' 'organisations' & 'programs'.
And I mean when you resize your text, ie, View/Text size/Increase.

You've got data="movie.swf" and value="banner.swf". Don't they have to be the same?
Links fixed in FF by the way.

The Javascript nav will kill it in search engines....

Using Javascript for the top Navigation will kill the site in search engines. Search engine spiders won't be able to follow the main nav links to the deeper content pages.

It will also destroy usability for human users with Javascript turned off.

Try a CSS Styled, unordered list drop down menu system like Suckerfish or Sons of Suckerfish same effect - but accessible.

Turn off Javascript - and then try to navigate the site....
