Need some feedback

  • # May 1, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    I am new to this stuff I haven’t done it for years so I really need some professional feedback.

    I am having some problems getting it to validate 100%. I will put the alt"" tags in when I put the content in but some of the other errors have me baffled. I can’t test ie so if someone could let me know what the scoop is there that would be great. Ignore the content it is currently being developed and proof read in a separate text document. As far as I can tell it looks good in Safari and Firefox.

    I want to get rid of that stupid dreamweaver java to do the grow/shrink thing and replace it with a fade in fade out and do it legally since I can’t afford dreamweaver. Any suggestions/links to tutorials would be great. I don’t know anything about .js

    Thanks for the helps guys don’t be 2 harsh :)

    I would definitely go in and add those alt attributes to all the images even if it’s not "real" content yet. It’s best just to keep your site validating all the time for troubleshooting purposes. One of the other problems you are having is with closing image tags that are already closed. For example, if you do this:


    Then you don’t need to close the image tag, because it was already closed with the trailing /> characters. If you don’t close it at the end, you will then need to close it like this:


    You are doing both, I’d just stick with the top method.

    I am also seeing weird scrollbars all over in the design. I’m not 100% sure, but I think it might have to do with the wrappers for the individual slides not having a set width but having some padding, which is confusing something somewhere.

    I have updated the site and it is now at a new link
    I have fixed all the validations errors and a number of other problems.

    It would be nice if someone could let me know if this works in IE
    Is there a good way to do a browser check for IE on a Mac

    I am also having a really hard time replacing the dreamweaver .js with the jQuery fadein/fadeout I don’t know what to put in place of "MM_effectGrowShrink".

    Thanks for the help
