    Strictly amateur website

    I've always been interested in building websites so thought it about time to combine hobbies. As I say, completely a beginner and quite basic but it keeps me happy !! Im quite happy with constructive criticisms, I believe it is the best way to learn from those who probably know better

    Re: Strictly amateur website

    Nice start to the site Rich, The thing that puts me off is waiting for the pics to scroll through, I would rather like to have control of the images I wish to view. I am using a Mac so there maybe some control that is not available to my browser. Just my opinion, well done you for the effort. The site is nice and clean to view.

      Re: Strictly amateur website

      Thanks for the comments, much appreciated. I think you can pause the images and go through with the arrows, however there are other slide shows available on the web builder i am using so the images would be displayed under the main photo. Is that what you were getting at? I also use a mac, never go back to windows now.

        I agree with Col, a great start but the images take too long to load and then scroll, if it was possible to have the gallery shown in small thumbnails and the images scroll with an option to select an image that would be great. I hope this is OK as it is meant as constructive suggestions.

          You've done a great job rich. Did you create it in joomla? If so, you havethe oppertunity to show low res picture en make it clickable for enlargement.
          Great job on the look and feel though! And nice to read something more about a fellow member (and actually see a face) ;)

            Thanks again for the comments. Im using ipage as a host and weebly web builder which is quite basic but suitable for my needs. Think Ill try a different type of gallery tho. As I said, all criticism taken in the right context, it is the only way to learn and progress

                  Im using ipage to host the site and through that, a simple webbuilder called weebly. It is very basic, drag and drop etc but you can upgrade. There is other software there butmore advanced and maybe for me, at least, for thr future.Thanks for looking

                    great look and feel of the site. as others mentioned taking long to load is a bit of a drawback. but there are some stunning images there too. thanks

                        Does seem to load faster, and it looks good to me.

                        Can't help feeling sorry for the bird with the deformed beak.
