Have a look at the wrapper taken from two different pages
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.
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".
Thanks for your input. Hope all is well with you.
I was confused about where to change the nav bar type. I always try to change it in the SpryNavHorizontal.css area. Next time I'll know to look on the page properties link area. (Or just stop depending so much on DW.)
I purposely changed the page widths to give some of the pictures more pop. I see from all of my feedback that's a no no.
I thought that was the advantage of not using a style sheet, if you want the pages to be slightly different widths it's not a problem . Guess I was getting too far outside the box. It did bother me that the type sizes look different, (type size versus live area ratio) Is that the main reason why page widths should be consistent? The fact that the type sizes were also different compounded the problem.
If I had had a verticle nav bar though, I guess it wouldn't have mattered as much right?
Part of the learning curve is to learn it all the hard way I guess.
Hope it's not too cold up there. You know this is the only time down here the weather's bearable, so I must take advantage of it.
Take care and nice to hear from you!
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.
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*
The cascading part has always confused me, this article will be perfect! Thanks Ken. it took me a while but I finally got the floats!
I know how beautiful it is where you live...... With that backdrop and a roaring fire (even if it is from your old trees), it sounds wonderful.
On the bright side also....less trees, better view.............more areas to plant flowers , as well as roaring fires!
It also gets you in the holiday spirit. You can see how much I love FL.....sigh
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
Well this is a fun thread! You are welcome Sudarshan!
I am getting the feeling from your post to Ken that you may be in India. I must tell you that my daughter just did an internship in Gurgoan.
She worked at Fortis. She traveled to many places and had a wonderful experience.
Thanks again for all of the help you have provided to me!
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.
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!
