    Default My Site

    Hi all

    Thought I would take the plunge and see what you thought of my site..

    Liam's Irish Traditional Music.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Was origanaly built with frontpage but did not like the software so we used dreamwaever.

    Best viewed at 600 x 800

    All comments gratfully received no matter how bad...

    Regards

    Sligoman

    at first sight it looks good although i expected to be able to be able to go to the links within the site from the list of what ill be able to download on the left hand side though, not from the top menus. those menus at the top are very small and its not the easiest thing in the world to see what submenu youre bringing up as theyre hidden against the background. when you do hover over one of the main menus it brings the submenu up over the top of the rest so you have to move the pointer away from the heading to take it back to look at something else. if the submenus opened next to it rather than over the top it might be better. i like the look of the site (apart from the adverts but theres not much you can do about them), it fits what the site is about, the main thing i dont like is the menus.

    also, 'If you found your visit hear useful, then please sign our guest book.'- spelling mistake, not major but just noticed it.

    Thanks maverick_15

    Thanks for the comments much appreciated I am just a bit curious has how the menu on the front page is being viewed to you.. I use internet explorer 6 at a resultion of 600 x 800 and a text size of medium and when I view the menu the sub menu drops down underneath and does not encroach on the other menu items.. I thick I will have to try it on diferent web browser's...

    Once again many thanks

    you should use percentages to make it automatically resise to fill the screen wheter it is 320*200 or 1600*1200 resoloution

    other than that good - problem with the midi file. i was trying to practise keyboard for gay exam on wednesday and nearly shat myself since midis play through the keyboard on my pc - very disturbing

    it is annoying if you are trying to play a mp3 or something in the back ground

    looks good though

    jesus christ... does the music ever stop? i had to close it just to keep my sanity intact. maybe a 15-30 sec clip is enuff!! or even just play it once rather than an infinite loop.

    Hi to all that replied to this thread.

    Thanks for the comments and have taken your advice and removed the music.

    @ twosheds

    How do I implicate the percentage thingy I use Macromedia Dreamweaver and I can't seem to find any help text on that subject. So would appreciateb a point in the right direction.

    Once again thans for the feedback

    Regards

    Hi sligoman.

    When I do my web sites I go in to the html code and
    put my width="100%" so what ever screen size it adjusts
    where as this width=782 would show scroll bars at the bottom
    on smaller screen resolutions and on sites over 800 x 600 would have
    space on right hand side.also your other width tags change them
    to but dont change the 97 just add the % mark width=97.also when I
    had a look at your source code you have used percentages to.also did you use
    a closeing html tag at the end because I could not see one.

    I think the opening page works great. Unfortunately the rest of the pages are not at the same level, althought I can not say I do not like them

    dreamweaver is a total pain in the arse - learn html. it's well worth it in the long run (if you all ready know it then it should be easy to impliment the percentages as per explorers instructions)
