Re: My new web site is up and running

Hello:
Some people, not all, are seeing that glitch. I don't see it. We'll see what we can do about it.

Will not have a FAQ section, at this time.
Working on more images.

How the hell do I change the font size on my signature here? I've tried and it only seems to get BIGGER! Hlelp!

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: My new web site is up and running

In the Robert H. Perry Bio section, you repeat the following text. It is both above the picture of Lakemba and to the side of the picture (at least in my browser):

In 1957 my Dad made a trip back to the US to visit his ailing father. Dad came back to Australia and told us that we could live a better life if we moved to the US. Life in Australia, no car, no dog, no house, no bike was far from the American dream. We came to the US on a Liberty ship the Lakemba. It took a month to make the trip due to being stuck in Fiji for two weeks waiting for a sugar refinery workers strike to end so the ship could be loaded with raw sugar. We landed in Vancouver and took the train to Seattle where we were met by my Aunt. We were intending to go on to Phoenix where my grandparents spent the winter but my Grampy was near the end so we stayed in Seattle.

Re: My new web site is up and running

Bob-
The overlapped lines actually shifted around as I was looking at the site. Probably means the way they are coded is allowing different browsers to display them by different "active" rules instead of by simpler fixed command. A mixed blessing of "modern" web coding, the obsolete old coding sometimes works better.

I do see the "Copyright" line floats freely, a fixed distance above anything that's below that frame, while the other text seems to be fixed as "down from the top", so they could shift against each other, move around and overlap.

Signature size? Like the "Perry 2013" in the picture a couple of messages back? Are you coding it as text, or is it an image file? Image files will be rendered differently, font sizes won't control them. If it is text...there's that magic active coding again. But I for one am unclear what you are referring to as "signature" overall.

He means his SailNet signature. The font was huge. I was fixing it and refreshing the thread to see that the changes took.

Re: My new web site is up and running

Thanks guys. Doc has fixed my signature. The web site glitches will eventually be fixed. This is Tom's very first web site and he is working hard at getting it right.

Re: My new web site is up and running

I have a lot of sailing friends on Facebook. Do you plan on putting a like/share button for Facebook. I think it might give your site more exposure.

Re: My new web site is up and running

A little bit of Italian (?) seems to have gotten mixed in at "Classic Perry Designs - Production Boats"..... Actually looks like Latin to me, but I couldn't imagine that
