New site layout

Postby BrockthePaine on Tue Dec 12, 2006 4:54 pm

Ah, Wayfarer's using IE7 then, the Firefox ripoff that looks like it once was an Apple program but fell into a running blender. Blargh. FIREFOX FOREVER!

Weird as it sounds, I used to dislike Firefox because I had mistaken it for that travesty, Netscape Navigator. And then I started designing websites a year ago and said "Better check to make sure this works in Firefox, too... all these crazy people are switching to this stupid program for some reason... Yes, I want the stupid program to load... boot it up... Oooh, spiffy. Now I see why everybody switches. OMG! TABS? TIFA!!! I <3 FIREFOX!!"

...yeah. Now I don't even bother to check if it works in IE anymore. Which is why Wayfarer had that little problem earlier. Doh. :o

Now this is weird.....I'm running IE7 and don't seem to have ANY kind of probs with it. Is it just me or my system? Seriously, I didn't have any problem loading the page or any others for that matter.

Zup'wit dis??

That's cause we fixered it already (well, mostly). Still some stuff left over to put together.

MSIE 6 at the office, and Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox at home. It comes through loud and clear here as well.

One problem I see with the layout is that the overall layout is too wide. Please try to keep in mind that not everyone maximizes their browser window on a 1280x1024 desktop. :) Ideally, readers should never be made to have to scroll horizontally to see the whole page if they're running at a reasonable window size -- in the past, this meant constraining your designs to render properly in an 800x600 window; nowadays, it's probably OK to aim for 1024x768, but the layout should still be checked at lower resolutions to make sure it degrades reasonably gracefully (i.e. major elements like the title banner should not be cut off on the right-hand side, nor should elements such as navigation buttons and links end up "hidden" offscreen until the user scrolls rightward.)
