05-10-2004, 03:16 AM #19design2Guestframe problems..
i kinda feel like an idiot cos frames are quite easy and before now i havent had any problems with them, and knowing me ive probably done something studily easy, but we all have and i need a fresh pair of eyes to help.
my frames are not loading in the right position or not loading at all.
for example when u click on a link from the index page you go to a frameset page (lets use home.html) this frameset consists of two column frames one on the left (navbar.html) and the mainframe (hhome.html). So what ive done is open the home.html frameset gone to the left navbar frame and made for example the about button to go to aabout.html in the mainFrame but it doesnt work. I then tried to open its frameset instead so opening about.html using the window target _self to reload the page but, nothing?
what am i doing? i know its probably easy but amuse me would ya?

woohoo i got a host+domain so now its http://www.ebesign.co.nz
ok probably not a big deal to you guys but i aint had a proper domain.
Um you guys mentioned before about the Typography, do you still think it needs changing? also someone mentioned changing my 2 column frame layout to a CSS div overflow should i still do this? Another note was to have all my pages alignment consistent, and obviously i need some more 'content' i am going to add some small pictures / graphics to jazz it up a little. However any other thoughts or suggestions are still very much welcome. Thanks

What I just saw is a really nice job and unique

ya I still think u should play with the layout. The two column layout is pretty typical, but your navigation takes so much page space. At least if you unite the columns together and use the overflow command it could have a different feel to it.
Yer' pretty good on fonts right now. (I'd also look at using some more color as the blue/grey scheme again, isn't very ground breaking hehe)

cool, i agree. Rob i think ur the man i talk to, when it comes to comments, cheers for this. also my site on pc looks crap, i mean layout is fine but all the colors are darker and the grey/blue looks poor.

If you look at other websites for color scheme ideas, you'll see what I mean when I say the blue/grey scheme is used alot. It's not bad, it's just not fresh.
A friend of mine taught me a really good way to figure color schemes out. Take a picture that you like, which you could see your site colors in. Then just go to photoshop and take the eye dropper tool. Since it's a picture typically all the colors will compliment each other, so try to play with that and create a palette for yourself.
It just takes time to get better with this.
05-28-2004, 03:19 AM #26design2Guestcss w/ browsers?
um guys i know css is used alot and is very helpful.
i mean i can use it and i know how much it saves on html tags, however there is a browser /os that doesnt support css well, i cant remember which one it is, do u know? is it IE or safari, netscape? i only know this because my friend makes all his sites in CSS and i do mine mostly in tables cos they are easy for me to control and he has many problems viewing in multiple browsers /platforms.

Think of it this way. IE for pc is in it's own class; Safari is in it's own class, Mozilla/Netscape are bascially the same. IE for mac isn't worth designing for.
So, if you can get it working on PC's IE and basically working with mozilla/netscape you're in pretty good shape.
It's just going to be time consuming.

wow i cant believe CSS isnt a web standard by W3C yet?! they better get onto it.
Hey! I've recently had a fireworks/dreamweaver brief to create a website for a NZ music band i chose The Managers (ska band). Please give me comments
the site url is http://www.ebesign.co.nz/www/index
um its kinda hard to create a ska music band site cos there aint much sites out there. if u dont know what ska music is listen to the audio samples.
Also question. When you make a site in fireworks with buttons, etc
06-14-2004, 06:30 PM #29dtx3000Guest
ok heres how to make the links preload (i <3 fireworks)
-make sure you have 2 frames (one for non-rollever and for rollover), or a seperate rollover image, and the original in the canvas is a slice or hotspot
-then, select the button in the canvas
-open behaviours panel
-click the plus sign, and go to -swap image
-panel comes up, select either the image !!!in frame 2!!!, or external image for swap image effect
-make sure "preload image" button is selected
-make sure "restore on mouseOut" is also selected
there it is.
and you said fireworks exports background images as straight html? to fix that, when you're saving (exporting rather) in the save dialogue box make sure 'include areas without slices' is checked.
hope this helps!
