HELP! Does this work?

EDIT: THANK YOU EVERYONE! I have now got a working mockup. Disregard request below...

Guinea pigs needed to test out a webpage layout in different browsers and operating systems!

Please to click on This Dummy Webpage and tell me if it looks right.

1. The ornamental frame should hug the page as you resize the window.

2. The text blocks shouldn't overlap each other or the graphics. (It's okay if the title block in white has some text chopped off the bottom.)

3. The graphics shouldn't take too long to load in. (I may program them to pre-load, but I've compressed them to fairly dainty file sizes.)

I'm still not quite proficient in CSS positioning, so after trying desperately to use CSS to replicate my ancient Medieval Scroll Trick done with tables, I committed the cardinal sin of mixing tables and CSS. But at least this one doesn't use frames, which are even more verboten. The old AuronLu Shrine does.

Well, it works ok on mozilla firefox and a dual widescreen setup.

Seems to work for me. I'm on a Mac running OS 10.4, and my browser is Camino.

My very assy work computer has loaded everything fine EXCEPT:

- the tiny line of text links at the top (I assume they are links? "Aulu Community LJ .. Fanfiction .. Adult fanfic .. " that block of text). That bit of text overlaps the border on the pale spot of the page by a little bit.

- Right before the test starts in the window, there is a bit of a gap. Here, I'm taking a screencap for you because it's too hard to describe: http://pics.livejournal.com/first_seventhe/pic/000203tq

I am, apparently, in IE6.0. I don't know whether you want to cater this low -- it's a shit work computer. Obviously no one looks at fanfiction while at work, right? ;)

Thank you! I've tweaked the navigation so it's not so wide now. I wonder if that weird gap is still there.

Well, someone might still use IE at home. *twitch*

Here is what I have right now: (uhhhh... please ignore the random EXCEL file. That's technically confidential! XD)


I am starting to think my computer is just asstastic. Dear world, this is why no one uses IE.

I hate IE.

Do the links still work?
If they do I may just say "frak it".

Dec. 9th, 2008 05:46 pm (UTC)
The links all work fine! Not giving a fuck about IE6... commencing!

Seriously, though, I think most people in the world have upgraded to IE7 -- this IE doesn't even have TABS. Oh, workplace. Never change.

WinXP/Firefox 3.3, widescreen 1024x768. The ornamental frame is not resizing when I resize the window, and for some reason, even when I have maxed browser window, I'm seeing a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom. I can screencap if you need.

Feh. Yes, please!

http://pics.livejournal.com/lassarina/pic/0001a6gp Let me know if the link doesn't work, I often fail at scrapbook.

That's how it's supposed to look.
I've tried putting the navbar in various different places. That's not perfect, but it's good enough, if only IE wouldn't crap out.
Dec. 9th, 2008 05:34 pm (UTC)
When I loaded it previously, the navbar was split, half to the left of the logo and half to the right.

The only thing I'm wondering about is why I have a horizontal scroll.
Dec. 9th, 2008 05:36 pm (UTC)
Because I'm a dork and I'm not entirely sure how to make it fit a narrow window. The only thing that's being cut off on your screen is part of the righthand ornamental border, which isn't content.

I moved the second half of the navbar to the left so that it won't get cut off if someone's got a narrower screen.

Oh, for actual training! Self-taught and trying to do too much is a dangerous combination.

I recommend the O'Reilly series if you want to really thoroughly learn how to do something - I learned HTML from them and it was awesome.
Dec. 9th, 2008 07:19 pm (UTC)

HTML does backflips for me. CSS is where I hit my limit.
Dec. 9th, 2008 07:41 pm (UTC)
For the relatively simple things I do for my site (The RPG Place), everything does backflips, including PHP.

One of these days I'll really learn CSS.

I just wanted to say it looks amazing and I love the graphisc and the colors and everything! I'm seeing some of the same things as lassarina so you've got that covered.

Thank you! I should edit this entry - -I finally got something that worked around 5AM this morning (d'oh)
