  1. Hi. I received an email today from site point extolling virtues of multibackgounds so I thought I'd give it a try. I copied the code and using localhost I could only view one image. (used IE9), so I then tried, firefox, google chrome, opera, and safari, again only one image, yet the site points example functioned. So, I copied their code, changed images to mine (yes the url was correct), still nothing, so.... I posted my page online and viewed it that way and yep, it worked. My question is, what am I missing, why can I view multiple image backgtounds if browsing online but cant if using localh
  2. Reply: it is something to do with where you store your image?I recreated your page and css and added a folder image - into that I placed an image and renamed it to yours. The image viewed through ie, so in theory your page works on the condition that ie can find your image. Check your paths etc?best I can do
  3. Hi. Suprised by what you say as the express group of MS programs are so designed for 'designers' to use foc (in the hope that they will move onto expressions or to the visual studio suite of programs); that said there are hundreds of free ide's out there - I have a dozen loaded onto my system which I flit between but prefer to use my visual studio which is dammed expensive so leave that idea alone. Why do they insist on note pad - not the best editor around; sounds like to me that they dont value the web design process; maybe its time to move on. Try Aurora Web Editor (it is from an Australia
  4. Hi. http://tredosoft.com/Multiple_IE will allow you to install ie 4, 5,6 on your pc alnog with your existing ie7. I use it for testing. Easy to install - and read their forum - there are a couple of quirks but only if you intend to do serious browsing using ie6 (to do with png's) but if like me you are using it for testing purposes then it is fine. If you are making ongoing amendments and viweing it in ie6 then just be aware that IE6 and 5 etc will require that you delete history - including 'local' - each time you view else it does not always show the updated version instead shows the cached
  5. hi. Saw you posted in Oct. but just looked now. Liked your home page. THe about page is pkay to (break the text a bit wouldn't hurt) BUT problems with other pages. Stats; I'm using ie7 and the actual stats overlay the navigation - the dstats need moving to the right about a cm.try creating a div here (you dont need to float like i've suggested - you could set a left margin of say 200px)<div style="float:right; margin-right:1%;"> <h1 style='font-size:1.5em;margin:10px 10px 10px 0;display:inline;'>Top Goalscorers</h1><table style='width:600px;margin-left:20px;'><tr sty
  6. Hi. Just toured your site. The issues you talked about look visually as if they have been resolved. I'm looking at your site and thinking there is a lot of text and the other observation is that you lose the navigation idea when you hit the blog part - there the viewer is trapped and the way out is not obvious. I hit the back button which I never like the idea of (dont ask me why but a lot of people feel like that - for some reason it is an annoying thing to have to do). Another observation, and please do't be offended - after all it is only my opinion and who am I - You have a lot to say and
  7. Hi, notice you posted this in Nov. so don't know if your project is still alive? The layout is kinda ok BUT - looking at it as a viewer, not a high flying designer, where are the flowers; I like flowers; this is about a festival - where are the flowers? I dont know if this would break your design idea or not but I would consider placing a really good fading flower graphic in the blank area too the left of your page. Like the post above; you draw to the header then stay there - you want the viewer to go to your text. On a positive note I really like your navigation tool bar - javascript? Abstra
  8. hi. Just had a quick browse - I mean quick - at your site. The pay pal issue - it looks to me as if the image has been 'over stretched'. You need to souce another image or group of images which were larger than your originals - incidently this effect can happen to an image which has also been 'reduced too much. I have this problem with images all the time. Navigate to the pay pal site and see what you can grab.Over all the site looks okay but I am never keen on dark backgrounds which do not offer a good contrasting font colour; makes it hard to read and conversely; dark background with a small
  9. Hi. I'm looking at this not as a Wow I'm a cool dude with CSS and HTML etc, but as 'visiter'. I like the horse but the back ground does not suit. You have used an indian red typr color for your headline font and the image is grey tone - I would use a very light gray tone as the background and highlight parts of your text in the same read tone. I've glanced at the the other posts and there seems a lot about the links.youv'e used: <div class="menleft"><p><a href="bio.php">About Anne</a></p><p><a href="gallery.php">Gallery 1</a></p><p>&
  10. Hi. I liked your clean and 'simple' (calm on top but paddling like mad below water) design. Personally I do not like sites which have too much going on or the colours do not balance. That said, I do think it needs a visual lift to make you want to read it. (it is only a personal view and is not meant to sound critical) The Prospectus section should grab the viewer immediately particually as this is the first part of the page which the viewer see's. Why should they read this??. My approach would be similar to yours but I would have added an interesting headline between 'prospectrus' and the sta
