Hi

Finished my online cv which will be viewed by employers on different browsers but probably mostly Mac IE, isn't that what most employers usually use.

I just need people to go through the pages and notify me of any layout problems.

The site has a style switcher so I would appreciate this doing for both styles 'simple' and 'fancy'.

The html is a little messy as I had to accommodate classes and divs for both styles.

Help much appreciated.

[edit]

my god that was stupid of me. Smile

Sorry my bad.

I assume alot of employers in Web Design use Macs. My gfriend is a graphic designer and they all use Mac IE, even the web designer, he even designs with tables and rarly uses a doctype and earns a ridiculous amount of money.

So forgive me for thinking that most of the employers who will view this site will probably be doing so on Mac IE

I was not questioning, I was just shocked! I thought that most designers would be using macs but for some reason thought they might have ditched IE by now that was all. Smile

Back on topic.

I think there should be a heading abouve the different styles to choose from, as it's not too obvious they will change the style. I also don't like the hover effect - it seems like the green bar should change color.

The links to external sites should be underlined.

Also, your page doesn't validate :twisted:

I always forget the alt tags. Taken care of.

Not sure why you wasn't seeing underlines on the external links because they have been there all along. But I have specified them now to make sure.

Added a dark green for the roll line/nav bit.

Can you notice anything that isn't were it should be, not design wise but layout browser bodge wise.

Not a layout problem, but a grammatical error:

.:::: small note :: This site hasn't yet been tested for Mac IE bugs and layout problems, if their is any they will be taken care of very soon ::::.

Should be - if there are any, they will be taken care of very soon

Hi Joseph

Just had a look in Opera 7.11 and there are a couple of odd things.

The top nav in the Fancy version is squished up and the it's a bit weird just above the footer - I've attached some images.

My strategy is so simple an idiot could have devised it!

The only problem I noticed under Mac IE 5.2.3 is the header under the fancy CSS is set ~6px to the left.

Hi HellsBells

Is that Opera on the PC? as it lookes fine on my PC XP Opera 7.54u2

I am guessing that Tony's Clearfix is causing some of these problems.

I have simplified the layout by removing a second container that was holding a shadow. This will hopefully fix the Mac IE 6px layout bodge.

Got rid of the clearfix hack, this should possible fix things. But text resizing will make probs now, but as this site is has a very specific aim I don't think that will be a problem.

Quick check please.

Thanks for the help so far.

OH god. I suck so much.

It should be simple just three divs sat on top of each other all set with margin:0 auto.

The top contains a horizontal list menu in the flow and a absolute menu on the right.

I have cleaned the code up a bit.
Could you make sure your cache is completely refreshed for the page.

I know now that my main style is working perfect.

Just this bloody fancy style now.

Cheers

No dancing yet. Still doesn't work in IE Mac. Now the menu is pegged to the left side of the window.

I'm sorry my friend, but I kid you not.
I've cleared caches and history and restarted. For a brief second I thought I had made a mistake (I'm always right. I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken...), but once I went to simple and back to fancy it was fubar. Also, when I go to off, I have no controls to switch back to simple or fancy.

This is strange. Go to www.fundisom.com/g5/ and see my latest capture 3.30.13 time its good. Don't recapture cos the stylesheets are normal again.

This is strange :?

Nice. Clean. Fast.

I had to go look this up (finally) http//www.motive.co.nz/glossary/favicon.php?ref

A couple fixes - relativly and exibit.

IE 6 XPSP2 renders nicely.

I thought the "Simple" was Fancier than "Fancy" )

Like Harmacy's black scrollbars - a very dramatic statement. And the film strip effect. I like that display!

Ssshhhh, Keep the scrollbar thing quiet or I'll get linched around here for something like that. Smile Yes I have found a good use for coloured scrollbars, just wish they would be adopted by the w3c like favicons were, aswell a scroll-x and y for controlling gutter jerkiness.

Can't access the link, but I am guessing it is about Favicons, I use them on all my sites, I figure if I can controll another aspect of the site I will, I leave very little to chance.

[edit]

Oh yeah the link worked now. Not the best article to use, it said set your resoultion on a 16 x 16 pixel image to 72 dpi, how on earth does that work. At the bottom you will see a link to iconforge, it's a good program, looks real bad though. Then get pixel toolbox when iconforge has run out. it's free but not as good.

RobieDotCom

Zen Garden template? You must be kidding. Not even half way there yet. Maybe you are refering to the javascript style switcher, as it is a very zen garden thing to do. They'r pretty easy to do you should look it up. Smile
