Hi fellow web designers. I'd love to start discussions of many
things. For starters, read my answers to the "quiz questions" about
animation, etc. Two things I forgot to mention about animations are:
Joomla CMS/Tiny MCE Editor/Joomla FCK clients have limited access to
functions. Vista will let them open some windows and not others, but
sometimes whyen they can get to the popup, they then are not allowed to
save/imlement changes. These are clients who do NOT want to learn HTML.
2. Windows - both XP and Vista- also fuck with (sorry, there's no
other correct phrase) Flash by initialy forcing acceptance of the
Flash object ans by placing a graphically problematic border around
but- well, you see where that might often go)...
Hello! Let's discuss web design issues.
If you are working with a client updating a site and you have to add a
new menu item to a sidebar menu where no template was ever used, and
the menu item link graphics initially were developed at an unknown
resolution, contain bevels, and are embedded in a background color
equivalent to the gradient brightness appropriate to that item based
upon its placement on the page and in the menu (remember, it's on top
of a gradient), and EACH PAGE implements the sidebar in a way unique
enought to defy "Find and Replace" for code, do you:
A. Create a completely new menu as library item or reusable object,
implementing it on every page, as needed, but with real fonts being
used rather than GIF images with attached background colors OR
B. Would you try to reverse-engineer the single new button needed,
trying to match font in the OnMouseout and trying to match font and
Drop Shadow specifics in the OnMouseover, as well as the proper
gradient level for the background?
Hope to hear from all of you. See- I use this group for REAL web
