Web Design Discussion

Recommended Posts

I have been working on an SMF theme based on the FreeWebTemplates Food template but have come to a problem:

If you look at the image, you will see whitespace at the top which I am unsure how to re-arrange into a less space-consuming position that will enable the topic replies to be visible within the browser window. Thanks in advance.

I personally feel that the words are tough to see. :S

Change the font colour?

Also, i feel that the navigational bar is kinda obstructive.

In this discussion, is it ok to talk about the programs used to make websites?

If so, What program do you use to make your websites, or do you code from scratch?

I myself use Notepad++ and Flash CS3 Pro. On the side I use Photoshop CS2 and Paint.NET, ofcourse.

I too use Notepad++, but when it comes to Imagemaps, I get stuck, same with Slicing the layout, as PdN doesn't have those functions and I don't have PhotoShop etc.

One of my web sites uses the font "Wingdings 2" for some of the text.

The problem is, that it looks fine in IE but not in other browsers.

Here's the style sheet code:

.del { FONT-SIZE: 12pt; CURSOR: hand; COLOR: red; FONT-FAMILY: Wingdings 2 }
.edt { FONT-SIZE: 14pt; CURSOR: hand; COLOR: green; FONT-FAMILY: Wingdings 2 }

Any ideas on what's wrong?

I am not sure what your error is, but surely the following code would make more sense?

.del { FONT-SIZE: 12pt; COLOR: red; }
.edt { FONT-SIZE: 14pt; COLOR: green; }

.edt,.del { CURSOR: hand; FONT-FAMILY: Wingdings 2; }

It's kind of like a standard that computers use to call up the letters we use. This is to maintain consistency of text across the world's many languages.

For instance, the lowercase letter 'm' has the unicode of U+006D, therefore, no matter where you are in the world when you use that code, no matter what language, that letter will look more or less the exact same.

How the code-base is structured has enabled it to support a library of many thousands of characters, including those of Japanese and Arabic characters.

To sum up: it's a universal standard to keep text looking the same no matter where it's typed or in whatever font.

I hope that made some sort of sense, oma.

Been interested in web designing, but I haven't really had the time. I'm just wondering if it's really time consuming. I bet it is, but is it one of those things on which you can get real frustrated at?

'Been reading that many people here use 'Notepad++' along with PDN and CS(2/3). Is the notepad for coding the buttons etc.?

Also, I'm a total wimp at coding. All I've ever used is Pawno Scripting Tool. Do you like use HTML or whatever else for coding?

Thanks in advance and if you have any tutties and introductions for a nub, then lemme know. :lol:

The error is that other browsers don't change the font face.
Possibly because Wingdings aren't installed on the viewers computer (aren't they Windows fonts?).

Possible solutions: Use standard characters, or images :(

A list of standard symbols was posted here by Peorge:viewtopic.php?p=207908

No, that's not it. In fact, I was using a different browser on the same computer.

Does anyone have an idea how I can make Firefox 2 and Firefox 3 go to a different URL without using javascript? I have a site with rgba colors and want Firefox 2 to use a different stylesheet because it then could use semi-transparent background-pixel png.

I also want this to work in Opera and Safari, so I appreciate every kind of Browser sniffing (except for the "IE comments" because I already know them).

Remember: No Script please
