New website online, opinions please

After hours of learning css etc, I managed to knock up a new photography website. I'm afraid there aren't any RIB pics on there yet, but hopefully there will be soon and almost definately will be after the cruise next week.

Anyway, all opinions and suggestions are welcome. I have been told that the thumbnail galleries (navigate to events>rs k6 nationals) do not display properly in internet explorer. Please let me know how you see them, they should be in 5 columns and 4 rows. They seem to work fine in firefox. Does anyone know how I can fix this problem?

Cheers!

The photos that you've chosen for the "home" page and the "portfolio" page are superb, very, very nice work indeed Tim.

Looks great to me but remember - most people use a bit more than 640x480 these days - on my 19" monitor there is loads of wasted screen.

Just noticed the 2006 RS K6 Nationals page with the thumbnails is perfect - it's just the main pages come up 1/4 screen.

I have tried it in Firefox and IE and it looks the same so very well done there!!!

Tim,

Just been looking at the css issue.

I think its down to IE and Firefox treating things like the "padding" and/or "margin" paremeters differently. I think one of them puts them inside the "width" you specify, and one outside.

I have had a play with the stylesheet, and found if you set the "thumbnail" class as follows, it looks fine in both browsers...

Code:
 
.thumbnail {
PADDING-RIGHT: 10px; PADDING-LEFT: 10px; FLOAT: left; PADDING-BOTTOM: 10px; MARGIN: 15px 19px; WIDTH: 122px; PADDING-TOP: 10px; HEIGHT: 130px; TEXT-ALIGN: center
}
Basically, before you had the "width" set to the same width as the image width, and then I think IE was adding the padding/margin to the inside of the divs...

Not 100% sure of the ins and outs, but the fix I've done seems to work for both browsers!

Thanks for the responses chaps.

Codders...I actually meant to have it that size (honest!) cos I think it looks neater and compact rather than being stretched across the whole page, doesn't really need to be any bigger does it? Thanks for the feedback though, all suggestions are welcome!

Ben, thanks very much for that. My first go at it with your code put my thumbs in 4 columns, whereas I want 5 columns. They were also over to the left and not centred. I'm going to have a play about with the cell padding etc now...

Pop, no its yarmouth pier taken from below Gossips! I will deliver prints anywhere. If you're interested, keep checking the site because I will be added more images soon. Your site looks great, the houses look even better!

Very nice site Tim. However I can save photo's to MY PICTURES, so you might want to copywrite them to prevent this happening in the future.


A from me.

thanks andy! Not too bothered about being able to "save as". all the files are real small so can't do a lot with them. Some times its refreshing not to have copyright text splashed all over the images.

I have now added a new whatsit thingy to the front page so the images changes. Using Ben's code I have also got the thumbnails to display properly in IE (thanks ben!) although i have 4 columns that are shifted over to the left and not 5 centred columns!

Just uploaded another gallery of Cowes P1 Powerboat pics.
