It is much improved over the previous version. Content width/size is perfect on my Android phone.
One thing though, photos cannot be "opened in a new tab" as higher resolution version. It is fine not to provide full res for all photos (maybe that is your intent?), but maybe provide a few full res will showcase full glory?
Ah, that's a good
idea Fan, especially as I've yet to 'standardise' the picture shapes (and probably sizes) as entered into the current grid. The actual image sizes will I think need to be reduced
but, the idea of the separately-opening tab for selected high-res images is a very good one. As you say, many of the slides have 'areas of interest' that are very suitable indeed as a 'showcase' for the slide quality on offer - I'll put that into the design - thanks for that Fan.
I really prefer the narrower layout now, and also the vertical (on the left of pages) arrangement of buttons - which means that additions will increase vertical size rather than quickly cause an ugly mismatch horizontally as in my earlier versions....
It seems (my layout) to have evolved into a 'portrait mode' page layout rather than the earlier 'landscape mode' - which I find far better personally, more suitable I think the the 'documentary style' of such a site rather than a multi-media orientated site that for example includes film and video as it's main theme perhaps....
Anyway, onward-ho! -
I'm pleased with the amount I've learned (and been taught) in the last couple of days and now feel able to exploit far more of the editing-software's capabilities. Within about another week I think I should have a 'proper' facility to view and choose slides implemented! I'm about 90% sure that I'll use this basic layout now - I like it thus far.
Thanks for your help again Fan, greatly appreciated - slowly but surely I'll get this beastie up & running - there's so much to add, lots of complementary info to come for certain around the topic of the histological adventures that slides offer.
Once the basic functionality is in place to peruse and maybe enquire or even order I can develop the rest at a more leisurely pace!
After all, I've been collecting many samples of Liverwort in my area (goodness I've skulked around in some dank places recently to scrape Liverworts from under bridges etc!
) recently and now have a definite 2, possibly 4 different species!
I've a whole raft of adventures planned for their investigation, not to mention some slides to make! Such fun!
The web-site's a very useful thing to have, especially if I can generate even a small income towards my lab's facilities, but my love is of Botany and histology - every hour spent developing the website includes 45mins wishing I was elbow-deep in leaves, stems and kaleidoscopic stains!
I'm learning a lot about the 'web-site stuff' and of course this will be useful knowledge - but an adjunct only to the Botany!
Ah - I love the sight of a well-filled gemmae-cup!
I've a nice Liverwort thread planned for the forum, detailing a lot of new material discovered - oh and I've been able (having fresh Liverworts at the right stage of maturity) to watch and will video the twisting-elaters throwing spores all over a slide! I'll put something nice together in the next couple of days - lots of pictures and Liverwort investigations to come soon!
Thanks again Fan!
hmmmm - Liverworts......
