Looks like a really good start, but people who don’t browse using at least 1024×768, or who don’t use full screen mode at 800×600 pixels using Internet Explorer aren’t going to be able to see any of the links in the navigation frame past the "achievements" link, or past the "tournaments" link using Netscape 6.x. It pays to switch video modes and test your site to at least include those monitors down to 800×600 pixels resolution. On our club website I have tried to make it for the most part viewable to everyone including those runnning 640×480 pixels of resolution on most parts of our website. Remember to target for the largest audience possible but don’t leave out others along the way whenever you can accomodate them… Also, don’t forget to test your site out to see how it looks in browsers other than the one you normally browse with. I normally test our club site using IE6, Netscape 6.x, and Netscape 4.7x in different resolutions, to make sure the site is compatible with these programs, as all of those programs all render websites differently, as one can see on your website as well. — Ron Reddon Secretary/Webmaster – Little Wind Archers http://clubs.bowhunting.net/littlewindarchers

actually, I’ve also found that usually setting a table to a PERCENT instead of a PIXEL SIZE will enable all resolutions in most browsers to behave better. Not always, but better than the alternative.  🙂 There are also free javascript samples you can get if you want to assay the resolution being used, I think – but I have never bothered with it.   Just try to use features that load fast, easy, and simply. good luck! – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text -> Pentref Bowmen now have their very own corner of cyberspace, and > invite you to drop in for a visit: > http://www.pentref-bowmen.org.uk > Looks like a really good start, but people who don’t browse using at least > 1024×768, or who don’t use full screen mode at 800×600 pixels using Internet > Explorer aren’t going to be able to see any of the links in the navigation frame > past the "achievements" link, or past the "tournaments" link using Netscape 6.x. > It pays to switch video modes and test your site to at least include those > monitors down to 800×600 pixels resolution.

Thank you both–I’ve reduced the size of the text and images in the menu frame and adjusted the table parameters, so that the whole menu should now be visible on a lower resolution screen/smaller window. When I get a few hours sometime soon (like 2005…), I’ll probably revamp the whole thing. Cheers, Jeff
