Site Critique

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Weyoun the Dancing Borg, Jan 26, 2004.

  1. Can you please take a look at the header for my site? The site is not yet
    complete but I would like to check that the navigational bar will work
    properly. I've tested it in Netscape 7, Mozilla Firebird and IE6 on the PC
    but I would like to check it works for everyone. I've used layers and
    roll-overs. Only the forums are online atm.

    If you encounter any problems, please state your browser version and if
    appropriate your screen resolution. Thanks in advance.

    55K file size for that logo is far too big to be reasonable, you could get
    it done to 10K or less as a gif.

    Your image rollovers don't work for me in Moz 1.6 or Netscape 7.1. They
    work fine in IE6, Firebird 0.7, and Netscape 4.8

    is it really 55K lol? I thought I reduced it. Ahh well, thanks for that. I'm
    going to work now but when I get back I shall put it as a png or gif file.
    thanks!

    I have mozilla 1.60 here and they work for me with no problems. I tried it
    in Netscape 7.0 and it works fine for me also.

    Here's the code I'm using, it's right from Dreamweaver MX:


    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
    <!--
    function MM_reloadPage(init) { //reloads the window if Nav4 resized
    if (init==true) with (navigator) {if
    ((appName=="Netscape")&&(parseInt(appVersion)==4)) {
    document.MM_pgW=innerWidth; document.MM_pgH=innerHeight;
    onresize=MM_reloadPage; }}
    else if (innerWidth!=document.MM_pgW || innerHeight!=document.MM_pgH)
    location.reload();
    }
    MM_reloadPage(true);

    function MM_swapImgRestore() { //v3.0
    var i,x,a=document.MM_sr; for(i=0;a&&i<a.length&&(x=a)&&x.oSrc;i++)
    x.src=x.oSrc;
    }

    function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
    var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
    var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length;
    i++)
    if (a.indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a;}}
    }

    function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01
    var p,i,x; if(!d) d=document;
    if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) {
    d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
    if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++)
    x=d.forms[n];
    for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++)
    x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers.document);
    if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x;
    }

    function MM_swapImage() { //v3.0
    var i,j=0,x,a=MM_swapImage.arguments; document.MM_sr=new Array;
    for(i=0;i<(a.length-2);i+=3)
    if ((x=MM_findObj(a))!=null){document.MM_sr[j++]=x; if(!x.oSrc)
    x.oSrc=x.src; x.src=a[i+2];}
    }
    //-->
    </script><td width="100"><a href="http://www.dancingborg.co.uk/store"
    onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()"onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('Shop','','images/

    And whilst I'm here, can anyone direct me to some online tutorials that
    allow (I think it's using layers) me to do this:

    www.sg1archive.com When you move over the "Season 1, Season 2" etc
    hyperlinks the image itself changes. I've seen this on a couple of websites.
    I want it so that when you move over "Shop" or "Forums" on my site, a layer
    would appear, just below the title and nav bar with a description of each
    link, but that would disappear when you move away? I have a feeling it will
    be something along the lines of an onMouseOver(<make layer 3 "An online
    shop, click here to continue" visble>) but I do not know the coding. I'm not
    asking for the code, a tutorial would do nicely :)

    TIA

    The method I use is onmouseover="document.mainimage.src='newimage.jpg'"
    Where "mainimage" is the name of the original image and newimage.jpg is what
    is to be replaced.

    There are tons of javascript stuff that do other tricks but that of course,
    requires a javascript capable browser.
