Ooeerrk! Deb has just asked if I can put some of the comments from the Visitors' Book up on the BB site.

The problem is "where?" since I don't think there's enough space on the menu for another page called Testimonials.

My first thought is on the Home page, above the Enquiries.

Any thoughts?

What about within the

What about within the "Spiritual and Wellbeing Seekers" section; say a "pullquote" box to the top right. A header, "what our guests are saying", a short quote, and a link to a page full of comments ought to work.

I wouldn't see this as a global navigation element.

cheers,

Hi Gary...well that's an

Hi Gary...well that's an idea. Giving me 'pullquote' practice eh? Wink

I have 8 quotes and started putting the section in with three of reasonable length then thought of putting the shorter ones at the bottom of each page between the bird and arrows, but I like your idea - could work well I think.

What do you mean by header? Another h3 (dashed underline?) or do you mean that's the pullquote?
Off to have another look!

By header, I meant whatever the appropriate is.

A pullquote somewhere on each page is a nice idea.

Here you go then... First try.

I can either make Visitors' Book a link to another page or try to fit the quote at the bottom (not quite working yet) or just put another pullquote under the content in each page. What do you think? Pullquote would probably have to be smaller though if going on each page don't you think?

Okay then - this is it for tonight.

What do you think of the bottom quotes? Brown (home page) or black? (other pages).

Better suggestions?

OK - all valid. However

OK - all valid. However there's a teensy problem with the quote marks in the main block (Home page).

1. If I put the closing Blockquote where it's supposed to be, I can't put a to put the author on the next line.

2. Tariffs page - seem to have to click somewhere on the screen for the quote to jump into its proper place.

BB

ETA: Adjusted the height of the Div - seems to be okay.

Well I got over number 1.

Well I got over number 1. above by taking out the names! Laughing out loud Deb asked me to change them because she hadn't asked permission - but I thought it better to put in the explanation.

I don't know if number 2. is still a problem or not - sometimes I seem to get it on the Home and Tariffs pages - e.g. you have to click the arrow for the quote to jump into place, and then click the arrow again to go to the next page.

How does it look?

Back again so I thought I'd

Back again so I thought I'd pop in and say you were in the nick of time Gary. I was rushing out the door to take the Visitors' update over to Deb to upload - which didn't actually happen tonight for various reasons, but should over the next day or two.

Also - it occurred to me that I don't think I've consciously used img on my pic classes before. So should I always specify them that way if the class has all the info for the image (like that one)?

I'm assuming that where I specify the class for an inline image where the height/widths are going to be different and therefore in the HTML - in the CSS it's something like what I'm using for Deb's photo in the new msavers site...

.image-left {
	text-align: center;
	margin-right: 1em;
}

and therefore it doesn't get the img on the end. Is that right?

Aaaw...don't be cross Sad He spotted my error 'cos I posted the code and put it together with your instructions - I didn't realise there should have been an img on the end of the class for it to work.
