Nav bar not consistant on every page

Dec 6, 2012 10:05 PM

I was wondering if there is a simple fix to make the nav bar appear the same size on every page.

Thank you.

    Have a look at the wrapper taken from two different pages

    #wrapper {

        height: 900px;

       width: 1170px;

        text-align: left;

        margin-right: auto;

        margin-bottom: 0px;

        margin-left: auto;

        padding: 0px;

    }

    and

    #wrapper {

        height: 1100px;

        width: 1200px;

        text-align: left;

        margin-right: auto;

        margin-bottom: 0px;

        margin-left: 310px;

        padding: 0px;

        background-repeat: no-repeat;

        background-image: url(images/hallbgaddedleftmargin.png);

    }

    This is just one example of differing style rules in your site.

     

    My experience is that it is best to have one external stylesheet for your layout styling. That way, if you make a mistake or you want to make an adjustment, you need to go to one central location.

    Hi Kiddo -

     

    Lookin' good.

     

    You also have varying font sizes 14px vs 17px .

    I'd go with Ben's advice to have a single remote stylesheet

    I'm pretty sure Gramps was just pointing out that your styles differ from page to page, not necessarily that the style he pointed out was the culprit.

     

    More of "giving you a direction" vs "giving you the answer".

    Faith,

     

    wrapper & header - width in both have to be changed to 970px.

    Hey m'lady-

     

    No need to confine yourself - you can use remote style sheets AND still overide certain attributes on certain pages.  It's a matter of  "specificity" in the CSS functionality.

    Read up on it:  http://coding.smashingmagazine.com/2007/07/27/css-specificity-things-y ou-should-know/

     

    While learning specificity is way up there with floats as to grasping the concepts,

    generally speaking, styles embedded in the head section of a page will overide the remote styles, and inline styles will overide both.  If all else fails, you can add !important to an attribute to bully it into submission.

     

    Now that there's layer of ice on the pool, the cover will likely stay put.

    With all the trees that came down, I will easily keep the fireplace roaring *LOL*

    I'm assuming Ken and Faith know each other from before?!

     

    Just curious!

    Hi ST -

    Astute observation as usual.  Faith and I interacted in a previous thread and discovered that her client built a bridge that crosses over a dam spillway just up the street from my home in New York.  

     

    I sent her this video we made to show her how it looked after the last two hurricanes.

    Although I can hear the sound of the falling water as I type, we are OK.

     

    Best to you

    That sounds interesting!

     

    Btw, is that you in the red shirt wearing a cap, Ken?! That place looks beautiful.

     

    NY is on my 'places to travel' list. Hopefully in a couple of years from now

     

    Glad to hear you're safe. Has the government taken any initiatives to 'repair' the bridge yet (if it badly needs one)?

    Yes, it's hard to believe we are only 30 minutes from New York City.

     

    Nope, that's not me in the cap, that's my next door neighbor Dr. Aaron Richman.  We are blessed to be very tight-knit neighbors, more like a big family with twelve teen age boys, and me as the Grandpa. 

     

    I'm in the video at 2.07 wearing a blue Tshirt.  At tech conferences, I am often mistaken for Murray Summers.

     

    The dam has been there over a hundred years since 1906, and has handled everything Mother Nature has thrown at it. The bridge is undamaged since I watched its reconstruction in 1975. It is quite used to wild water.

    Here is Faith's picture of it during a drought

    I can see why!

     

    Great to connect with you over here, thanks to Faith!

     

    Best Regards,

    Faith, You are right. I am in India!

     

    Born & Raised here except for my college that I did in Australia.

     

    Great to hear that your daughter completed her internship with Fortis Group in Gurgaon. It's a beautiful town. Fast developing, hub for many a MNC's. A few hours drive from our capital city New Delhi.

     

    I live down south in Bangalore (inland) - IT Hub of India. I'm originally from coastal city of Chennai (eastern coast). If there is one thing that I miss in Bangalore, it definitely is the beaches and coastline!

     

    Is your daughter still here in India? What did she intern as with Fortis? They're one of my clients. I do quite a bit of work with them through another KPO that I've tied up with.

    Where did you study in Australia, Sudarshan?

     

    I'm in Adelaide, South Australia.

    John, I went to SAE (School of Audio Engineering) in Byron Bay. Yes I know, it's a lovely place and I miss being there

     

    I've traveled to almost 80% of the East coast and a part of NT while I was there.

     

    I didn't get a chance to visit SA. On my books though - soon, hopefully!
