Hi all
I finally finished my site and would welcome any feedback re browser issues. I know that it doesn't work on Mac/IE but I can live with that(because I don't know how to fix the problem)-should I add a note on the home page pointing that out?

the site is at www.rendoulis.com

thanks

site testing please

Your page(Drunk don't validate. If you've never validated before have a look here. I like the design. The gallery is really well done. Works well in FF on WINXP. You have a home link in the gallery but it would be nice to have the whole navigation thread in there too. But it can live with out it. Nice photography.

A few things that struck me:

  1. Your links are below the bottom of my window so I have to scroll all the time (I'm using 1024 x 780)
  2. Your little arrows don't line up with the links and get further out of line the further right you go (ie 'contact' is the worst)
  3. When you're in 'gallery' you have to go back to 'home' to get to the rest of the site.
  4. There's something up with your contact page cos there's a big horizontal scrollbar in FF 1.5
Great looking photos though. Smile

How to get help
Post a link. If you can't post a link, jsFiddle it.

Thanks for the reply

Did you happen to have a problem with the down pointing arrow not lining up properly?

thanks for your help. I will go through and compare the two so I can learn where I went wrong. The next project will be the soccer club my kid's play for (www.adelaideolympic.com.au). Rest assured; I'll be asking for help on that project Smile))

Thanks again to all that replied.

double dark you can download a css plugin for firefox that validates as you are working with your site.
