Gimme dat good ol site check

Posted 18 August 2001 - 04:20 PM

heylo all. I'm currently working on my design for my new personal site: http://www.firstreality.net

First venture into php too! yippie! There's no content really but that'll come after i finalize the template.

So what do you guys think? I'm going for the minimalistic style this time around.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Sweet entrance page.  Nice graphic, I like the colors.  The site loads QUICK!  I took a look at the source and found a pre-load image script, smart.  The transparent buttons are awesome.  I like the font for the buttons.  Nice Work!

Thanks! The reason the site loads soo quickly is because of php and css..

You are only looking at one page, but the php script loads the content dynamically. yippie!

Nice site.
I like the php implementation (how did you do it?) and the background and the general layout is good.
I also like your footer image but thats something else.
You are very good at imagery.

I tried one line but it looked to bare. I'm thinking of maybe reducing it to 3 lines... i dunno.

Thanks for the comments! Now i just need time to finish it!

Nice.

I hate the Dreamweaver rollover code though. Slow as ####.

Here's some code I wrote, really fast and easily customizable. It works with Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera, Mozilla and others.

<script language="Javascript">
//  Begin Javascript Rollovers

loadimg = new MakeArray(5)
//make sure this number ^  is greater than
//     the number of images to preload.
//
//  list all the images you want to be preloaded
//
       loadimg[1].src = "images/first.gif"
       loadimg[2].src = "images/first_on.gif"
       loadimg[3].src = "images/second.gif"
       loadimg[4].src = "images/second_on.gif"

function MakeArray(n)
       {
       this.length = n
       for (var ii = 1; ii<=n; ii++)
               {
               this[ii] = new Image()
               }
       return this
       }

function over(imgname){

//
//  you can change the
//    "images/" + imgname + ".gif"        
//             and
//    "images/" + imgname + "_on.gif"
//  to match your image naming method.
//
document.images[(imgname)].src="images/" + imgname + ".gif";
}
function out(imgname){
document.images[(imgname)].src="images/" + imgname + "_on.gif";
}
// end
</script>

The links look something like this then...

<a href="first.shtml" onmouseover="over('first');" onmouseout="out('first');"><img src="images/first.gif" width="125" height="26" alt="First Image" border="0" name="first"></a>
