You are viewing the Archives for 2007.......If you want the current page, CLICK HERE.......

Okay, now is the time for some feedback.

I figure I have about two more days of off-and-on tinkering before I will be done. It would be good to hear some thoughts and concerns as I finish tying everything together here.

The instant chat isn’t going to remain on the front page as a permanent fixture. It can be toggled on and off there whenever it is needed, but normally it will be accessable from its little tab at the top of the page below the header.

In case you didn’t notice, I changed the URL for the music picks. If you are bookmarked, you might want to change it now. Also, I have an RSS feed set up. I already have the entire week’s picks queued up to post at midnight ever day. Tuesday’s is kind of a fun one.

I still have some sidebar work to do. Once all of this is done I will make a second copy of this theme that those of you with older monitors with the low resolution can pick.

    It looks good. I think the font is a little small, but not when you consider how much stuff is on the site. I like how fast the site loads now.

    I like the way it’s looking, Deej, only things I miss are the emoticons and the post preview. (ON the other hand, that post preview used to slow my browser down quite a bit when I had too many tabs open, so maybe it’s not a bad thing…)

    Font is currently a little on the small side for me as well, but that is a function of having F’ed up my video by trying to put a WAY wrong card in last weekend. (I’m locked to 1600×1400 right now, so I also have these massive black bars down either side of the page.) (CTRL++ fixes that, however.) On the front page, it seems like the text is being overly compressed,

    I’ll see if I can’t figger out a way to send you a couple of screen caps so you can see what I am blathering about.

    Not too bad at t’all Dave, are you going to restore the sidebars ads, etc to each page view? And I have to agree the font is a tich small, but that could but attributable to my aging peepers. Also, while I do like the look of the date gif is it possible to change the background to the Rottie standard black?

    Country-Red’s assessment is the overall theme is a bit virginal and not quite having the true Rottie bite to it……

    Otherwise your efforts are appreciated and it sure as hell is faster loading than before.

    Thanks for the effort !!!

    Love it, Deej.

    As to the font size, evvybody, it’s a matter of striking a balance. You’re right that it looks very small on high resolutions (I have that problem myself), but if they were bigger, then there’d be no room for text on normal resolutions. Of course, we could make the site wider, but then we’d throw a problem at people not running in a resolution high enough to support it. And, as Sir Guids pointed out, CTRL + “+” fixes the issue right quick by instantly magnifying the font. I use that one myself quite often.

    Oh, and the avatars will be back, I’m sure.

    Like the way the site loads quickly. Bravo DJ! I miss the emoticons as well. The overall layout is a bit wide for my 15 inch monitor, and I have to move back and forth, but not a major problem. Don’t mind the font size either. Overall a thumbs up!

    Haven’t noticed any other comments about it, but the little pop-up window with the links (noticed it while trying to get the larger pic of the DSC ceremony) is too far from the cursor & disappears when trying to move said cursor to it to click. Direct clicking on a pic or a link (such as Instant Bark) doesn’t work in Firefox 2.0.0.9 unless I right-click on it and “open link in new window”. I get the same behavior in Internet Exploder 7. I did get the Plugins and Home link to work several times by whipping the cursor to the little window before it disappeared and the link worked automatically without clicking once the cursor touched it.
    Am I missing something?
    Otherwise, I like it, except it doesn’t render full-screen anymore at 1680 resolution. I can get used to that.

    Well it takes some getting used to. I’m not going to complain about anything seeing how you’ve worked your ass off to get it running faster. It does load alot faster for sure. And I do like having that Home button at the top of the page. I was getting tired of hitting the back button or having to hit my bookmark in order to get back to the front page after leaving a comment.

    Thanks DJ.

    Very nice. I like cars and websites built more for speed than comfort–women (actually just one for the last twenty years and forever) the converse. At my display setting (1280 x 1024), the center text frame could be a good deal wider–would definitely help with readability. Wasn’t it wider before? Side bars look AOK (though graphics, partic. “Deus Vult” seems to have been downsampled or up-contrasted a bit–not a big deal). Haven’t tried any extra stuff, but haven’t had any trouble using Firefox 2.0.0.7 to date. Thanks for taking input on this–I’ve watched as favorite sites underwent revamps that made them useless, so this is a really welcome breath of fresh, intelligent air.

    Thank you Sir, for the time and the amazing amount of know-how this would require. I am indebted to you.

    Ah, you want it to open in a new window. (making note of it while I call the men in the white suits…)

    Agreed on the primary pro points, speed and clarity. As for cons, where’s the avatars, and the emoticons?

    I still have work to do on the comments page, and I am not sure I am going to put the emoticons back in.

    Oh, btw, the ratings flimbusses were nice, but not necessary. It’s extremely rare when anything at the Rott isn’t damn fine.

    I think they tended to slow things down a bit.

    Also, while I do like the look of the date gif is it possible to change the background to the Rottie standard black?

    Not without breaking everything.

    As to the font size, evvybody, it’s a matter of striking a balance. You’re right that it looks very small on high resolutions (I have that problem myself), but if they were bigger, then there’d be no room for text on normal resolutions. Of course, we could make the site wider, but then we’d throw a problem at people not running in a resolution high enough to support it. And, as Sir Guids pointed out, CTRL + “+” fixes the issue right quick by instantly magnifying the font. I use that one myself quite often.

    I plan on making a second, 800×600 version of this theme and install a theme switcher so that people with the lower resolution displays can view the page without scrolling.

    The problem with having three columns is that the third column takes up valuable real estate that could have gone towards larger fonts. I might try to increase the size of the font here a smidge, but right now it is a bit low on the priority list — especially since the issue can be managed with the CTRL+ and CTRL - function. I might put the text size thing on the page itself.

    The overall layout is a bit wide for my 15 inch monitor, and I have to move back and forth, but not a major problem.

    This was written for 1024×768 and I am using 1280×1024. I realize that there are still people out there with 800×600 resolutions due to old machines or old eyes or both. Like I said, within a few days, I will have an 800×600 resolution choice available for you.

    Am I missing something?

    Yes, it is a label, not a link. All the black box is doing is identifying what the link is. Just click the link like you would normally do.

    Maybe it’s me, but I can’t snag anything in the comments to reply to

    Strange. What browser are you using?

    but haven’t had any trouble using Firefox 2.0.0.7 to date.

    Is it me, or has anyone else noticed that FireFox has jumped the shark on having a browser that wasn’t full of bloat?

    Some comments, highlighted with a mouse drag, will just turn the text blue, leaving the background of the highlight white. This is hard to see. While other comment highlight drags will block the highlight background blue and change the text white.

    This is a test:

    If I knew which ss

    I can cut and paste, but have to pay careful attention, no highlight. OK right now, but there are those late night rants that could become interesting (unintelligible).

    On another note, I’m use to hitting refresh and going to do something (think I’ll have another beer while I wait). It’s loading so fast now, I’m going through withdrawals. Guess I’ll have to move the fridge closer.

    Mike in Chi,

    Some comments, highlighted with a mouse drag, will just turn the text blue, leaving the background of the highlight white.

    That’s exactly what’s happening. I didn’t even notice that the letters were changing color.

    Thanks.

    Okay. I can copy and paste from the non-colored boxes, but I can’t see the highlight to know what I’ve gotten and what
    I haven’t. Is there any way to change that? I’ve asked on the Firefox forum, but I’m thinking it’s a problem with this
    theme.

    I am using the same Firefox and this is how it looks when I highlight:

    I can Highlight in Firefox
    Click to enlarge

    Yeah, it’s a stylesheet issue with the font and background settings for highlighted sections. If I knew which ss it was in and, more importantly, where, I could change it in two seconds.

    The only difference between the odd and even comments is that odd comments are a very light grey and the even comments white. the YELLOW comments are made by the author of the post.

    Normally, the highlight is blue — like the picture above. I can’t seem to replicate the issue you are having.

    Still loads slower than catpiss.

    It all depends on what else is happening in the background. I was sitting here looking at the SPY Visitors (only for Management) a little while ago. You can actually watch people come to the site in real time — where they go and where they came from. There are times when it gets pretty damn busy here, and you just have to wait in line to get the page served to you. Last night I watched the Yahoo spider hit page after page after page — it was like a steady scrolling.

    ( I can see it now: Misha will spend hours over there watching this thing. :lol:)

    Call me old-fashioned, but I miss the old look. I’ll adapt. Page does load much fast, kudos for that, and IE can make the font a tich larger for my old eyes.

    You now have the option to change the size of the font. Look at the top of the page.

    Love it! Particularly that it remembers what size you want. Any time I came here, even before these upgrades and refinements, was hit Ctrl+scroll to get it up to something I didn’t have to lean into the screen to read.

    Hope it isn’t such a habit that I’m not looking at 42 pt. font all the time.

    DJ,

    The code seems reasonably clean and from what I can see, I would maybe normalize the databases a bit more. Mathematically they would perform better under stress.

    I did find a small typo in the function showResult() in the Else statement “Please try again leter

    All in all, you have done a great job!!

    Well done

    I will look for it someday when I am really bored. I didn’t write that script, and I am not exactly sure which script it is right now. It is an error message, so it doesn’t really break anything.

    Besides, I have no problem with a misspelled word here and there. But thanks for pointing it out. I will get anal enough someday to actually spend time looking for it.

    On the “Recent Comments” sidebar, I liked it better when the title of the post was the lead, not who posted.

    I post in spurts, so the side bar will have a series of “SoCal in” posts which makes it hard for others to follow something they’re waiting to pounce on.

    I wish the people and/or companies I worked with gave as much attention to their product as you do to what your name goes on.

    Strange, because I get the exact same thing in my version of FireFox as Skye. Yes, when I highlight the comment as in your screencap, it works fine. But when I highlight the next one (the “slower than catpiss” one), I get the highlight as blue text on white background. Strange.

    Edit: I get the same on this one, it being an “even” comment. The highlight only changes the font color from black to blue, it doesn’t change the background.

    When you do a CTRL-A, what do you get? Does it highlight all of the text on the page? (It does for me in all of my browsers and on four of my machines. I cannot seem to reproduce your issue.

    Like I said, the only difference between the odd and even comments is the background and the border around it.

    Don’t know if I’m helping or hindering, but, even number comments highlighting is letters go to blue, which I can’t really see well. Odd number comments, I get the normal black highlight.

    CTRL-A highlights from where I put the cursor all the way to the bottom of the page.

    This from the Firefox forum:

    I only see a slight text color change to something blueish, but no background change (Minefield).
    ====================================================

    Two possibilities here…

    1. Give the Webmaster a bit of good ol’ Klingon invective…
    2. Have a whizz with Stylish and alter the site’s theme to something better.
    Have a peruse of UserStyles to see if some bright spark has sussed something out.

    =========================================================

    This is used if the selection works: .alt { background-color: #fafafa; }

    There is a background image:
    background-image: url(http://www.nicedoggie.net/2007/wp-content/themes/Rottie_v2.30/images/bg-102

    Then, there’s this post:

    Maybe it is a bug.
    It works ok in Firefox 1.0.8, but Firefox 1.5.0.12 and 2.0.0.9 do not show a background for the selection.

    Maybe this helps?

    Okay, I will look into it later. I found the ONE machine here that replicates the problem some of you are experiencing with XP and FireFart 2.0.0.9. (but not ALL XP machines with FireFart 2.0.0.9 — which is a little suspicious.)

    I don’t have time right this minute — my morning torture session is due to start in about an hour and the pre-torture of having to DRIVE there on the clogged up I-405 will be an attitude adjustment.

    On this thread, text not enclosed by a box runs off into the black. The wider boxes, however make their contents more readable. Again, kudos on the upgrade/revamp. If it’s always like this, I’ll just light up the text with a ctrlA.

    DJ, I really like it! I especially like the drop down where you can choose the size of the font, and disappearing/reappearing the sidebars and the post body is pretty cool, too! You’ve kept the theme very Rottie-like, and yet it’s cleaner and more “modernized”…

    Okay, I know what the problemis — more importantly what is causing the problem. Other than the fact that FireFox has jumped the shark — and this is only effecting XP/FireFox combinations, (my Vista/FireFox works perfectly) there is no CSS issue causing it.

    SkyeChild had it correct: it is the background image that creates the white space here. For some reason, Firefox gets confused if there is a PNG file set as a background. If it were a GIF or a JPG, there wouldn’t be a problem. The background graphic I’m using for the blockquoted section is a JPG and it works just fine.

    I will work on this later when I get butt home. I have a second session of torture coming up in an hour…

    Okie dokie. Try it now.

    I think I’ve solved the problem and STILL kept the bg-1024.png background.

    The original author of this theme apparently didn’t know that there was a problem with XP/Firefox being able to grab something out of the bare container with a .png background. (I could grab something with a .jpg, or a .gif background, but the reason for the .png was its transparency properties.

    *slap*

    Okay that took care of that bored look on your face…

    I “borrowed” the alternating color scheme from my Liberaltopia theme. After all, I think it adds a little accent here.

    So did this fix the problem?

    Ok, I only found this one because my cookies are screwed up on this machine, and I wasn’t automatically logged in when I came here. When not logged in, the center column runs over the right-hand column, but that went away when I logged in, and came back when I logged out again.

    I’m on XP with IE6, and a screen resolution of 1152×864 (1280×1024 is a bit too small on this monitor).

    Other than that, looks good, and loads fast, though.

    Excellent readability. I particularly like the contrast of the yellow text boxes. It’s what I use for my word processing screen. They don’t make legal pads yellow just for grins. As far as I’m concerned, DeeJ can rest on his laurels for a bit.
