Hello,

test.cyrano.com
user:reviewer
pass:critic

This is the site I'm working on for my company. The deal is that I have very little experience as a web developer but because my company is small they chose me to do the site. I'm sure there are some incredibly talented designers on this site so I was hopding to get some constructive criticism regarding site layout and whatnot. You'll probably see the initial blank page with just 2 links - that's just because I've yet to create the splash page but those 2 links will direct you to the main parts of the site. Lastly, if anyone can help solve my IE problem I'd be eternally grateful. http://test.cyrano.com/health/ looks fine in all browsers except IE on the PC. Through IE the div's don't line up touching and instead there's a small margin between each. Thanks again.

Lookin good

Using WinXP Home/ IE6/ 1024x768...

Holy crap that inspector jumps out at me Laughing out loud I guess that's a good thing, eh? I noticed that I am always able to see horizontal scroll bars (once past the Health splash screen).

I think the menu and navigation look good- nice color choice.

The boxes around your secondary navigation seem kind of a tight fit- see the attachment.

There seems to be something up with the Products menu- a large portion of it returns 404 errors, and the menu options change depending on which page I click "products" from- if you need more info on that, let me know.

Still seeing a horizontal scroll bar. When resizing the window just a tad the stopwatch drops off the bottom of the screen. Also, the text on fancy_ell.jpg is semi-difficult to read.

Overall, it's a good looking site. I'm not sure if I saw the DIV issues you spoke of- you have View Source blocked and I don't feel like taking the time to circumvent at the moment. It seems to cater specifically towards 1024x768- you might consider shrinking the inspector, doc, stopwatch, and fancy_ell to allow for smaller screen resolutions.

Good luck...

Re: I'm not trying to block view source..

Hmm... You mean you're not blocking [View] >> [Source]? I tried right-clicking and clicking [View] >> [Source] and I can't see your source code at all (WinXP Home, IE6). Does anyone know the reason for this? Is this common and I'm just now noticing?

By using view-source:url (for example, view-source:http://test.cyrano.com/health/ after logging in as reviewer) I was finally able to see your source code. I half-expected to see some javascript blocking [view] >> [source] but I didn't notice any. Odd...

Could you elaborate more on

? I counted 17 div's on one page, which ones are you having trouble with? Also, what version of IE are you using?

view source

truly,
I've added no javascript to block the viewing of source. I'm using php and a bunch of includes for the header and footer and menu, but I am not blocking the source at all. Could it be a server side thing? does apache have the ability to block source? I don't think so just because apache's sole purpose is to send the source to the browser. So I'm stumped as to why the source isn't available. I can't view it either through my browser. Anyway, I fixed the IE issue with the help of someone else on the boards. Basically, you can't have ANY spaces between an opening DIV and the IMG tag and for ease of reading I had a few. All works fine now.

Browser check and quick question...

The images don't seem to be holding together in NS 6.2 on Win2K, and on IE mac when you resize the window smaller. It might work better if instead of slicing the images into rows, you keep them as whole units and use CSS to position them seperately inside a div with position:relative, a 1px solid black border, and a set height.

Maybe the creepy inspector is left in the normal flow followed by the docter lady with float: right and a top margin to push her down to the bottom of the container, then the Test Stream logo. Or even absolutely position the doctor and TestStream type.

Sorry this got a little long-winded. It's just a quick thought.
