    New To Mac's with major website issues
    Hello all,
    I have just recently taken the migration plunge from the PC to the Mac and I have been nothing but impressed.
    However I also run a website for a local boys football side and seem to have run into a raft of issues.
    The web site is written in Dreamweaver and uses the CSS format, however since the move to a Mac I can no longer view the site properly and the navigation buttons don't work. They still work and operate and view correctly on a PC ......................
    Is there anyone who can shed any light as to why the Mac wont view the site and operate it correctly.

    If I load just the buttons I can use them only for one navigation and then it back to square one.................
    Many thanks for your anticipated help.

    imac 24" 3.06 4 ram fully up to date with updates.

    Probably some missing software there. I'm not an expert at that however.

    Thanks for the swift reply Keith.
    I cannot understand why I and everyone with a Mac sees one thing yet the PC is happy. I am unsure what software I would require seems the Mac should already have the java and flash loaded.

    Just FYI, it has nothing to do with the OS, it also displays improperly on a PC using any web browser other than Internet Explorer. Do note that many of the more savvy computer users have long abandoned IE due to the massive security flaws that afflict it. You may want to change your scrolling message (and by all means, speed up the scroll rate!).
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    The buttons work in Firefox, though they're not where they're supposed to be. The site works perfectly on Internet Explorer for Mac. As cwa said, this is a result of a website designed to rely specifically on IE, not problems with the Mac platform. And luckily for you, there is an Internet Explorer 5.2 for Mac.

    On my Mac, using Firefox, the buttons work, although they are not in the correct place. It looks like the other posters are correct, the site is designed specifically for IE, and more importantly, a newer version of IE. And that scroll is really, really slow.

    This is due to not thinking about your viewers. When you design a website you need to think ahead and design so that it can be viewed correctly. Either it be by a computer or for a phone.

    In your case you need to test your webpage on different web browsers to make sure it is displayed correctly.

    This is due to improper coding- when designing a site, you should test it in as many major browsers and OS's as possible. IE is horrendous when it comes to being compliant to web standards, whereas Safari and Firefox are much more compliant.

    Apologies for the slow scrolling .......... I will speed it up.
    Unfortunately when this site was designed and constructed, it was by someone who only has the understanding of "if it looks good..... its works fine"
    I thought that the whole idea of using a conventional coded programmer like CSS via the Adobe Dreamweaver package would enable the site to run on anything. I have another dream-team football site written on exactly the same packages and that looks and works fine.
    I am not a programmer just a bod who has had a go. and i would be unsure how I test it on all the other platforms you mention.
    I take it that CSS dreamweaver programming is uncompatable with a Mac then..
    I am very confused.

    Dreamweaver is just a tool - you'll be able to create sites that work with any browser with it just fine... however you can also make sites that won't work fine...

    My advice: Loose the fancy buttons for the time being and just make them simple text links.

    Note that this is not a mac issue: Google's new Chrome browser and Safari for Windows will most likely have the same problems...

    You might start by addressing the errors here:

    But that's just a starting point.
