This is a website i'm building for a friend's business. Let me know what you think of the design etc.
I personally think it's my best piece of work.
I am aware of the compatibility issue with Firefox and Opera. I've worked out how to fix it but i can't be bothered right now
I hate to spam but .. anybody?
I've seen lots of views but not many replies.
Some comments from other browser users would be good too thanks.
Don't worry, it's not spamming, just simply bumping your topic. As long as you do it at least 24 hours apart no-one should mind.
I'll be honest with your site. As a newly converted Firefox user, it doesn't look fantastic, but I'll tell you what I like and dislike.
It's goo that you're using PHP, that seems to be a very professional approach to websites.
I don't like the text size, I feel it could be smaller and have a bigger impatc (I'm running at 1024).
I really dislike the quick links box at the side. They should just be in the popunder menu under services.
Some pages doesn't work, I haven't checked the others. I'm guessing you knew that though.
I also dilike the orange box on mouseover, but I guess that's just me .
Coming along well though, keep up the good work.
yes, there was an unfortunate error involving the mysql database. That's all fixed now if you want to see how i displayed the data.
The point of the quick links box on the left was for when the menu gets more populated. If you look at the source of the site, you'll see how some of the "potential menus items" are commented out. It was for people who know what they are looking for but don't want to navigate the whole site to find it.
Which text-size looks too big do you think? I run at 1280 x 1024 so everything seems fine to me but i guess that's a problem with writing for this resolution.
What do you dislike about the orange? too bright? or should be different? I haven't experimented much with colours but orange just fit the scheme.
When i can be bothered i'll fix the mozilla/opera problem
Like i said, easily done but i'm lazy right now
Thanks for your honest opinion and i expect a reply to my questions
It'll be good to get a consensus about it all to see the overall opinion.
OK I fixed the Firefox problem partially.
Now the only problem is that if you resize the browser window past the bottom of the quick link box and the picture on the right, the bottom of the white area doesn't stop there (because it's doing the right thing and staying the same size as the viewport). instead it continues and when you scroll down to the bottom of the picture you see grey. You'll see what i mean.
EDIT: Just realised that it's not counting the floats (left and right sidebars) as being part of the flow. As long as the content in #bodytext goes further down that them (which can never be guaranteed) it's fine.
I know there is a way to fix it, but i don't know what it is
And Opera does something really silly. It won't update the height until i do something like mouse-over a link :?
Try to explain that one.
This should help with the floats.
Otherwise you could add a div or other element after the floats and set it to clear both.
Hope that helps
Thanks Tony. That fixed the majority of the problem
now i have to just find out why there is a few pixel gap under the bottom of the container :?
That Opera problem still puzzles me though. It's not drastic at least.
One other small change I would make.
Your 'quick links' have a dashed line separator AND each link is underlined. I would get rid of the link underlining.
I would also get each link onto one line (Game Server Addon splits across two lines) by making the div slightly wider and have a change of color on hover.
