    Website testing

    I suppose this is the correct forum for this. I am currently redesigning my company's website, and I just want to check to make sure it displays correctly across most browsers. It is still in the preliminary stages(main page and listings page), but it should be enough to get a general idea if this layout will work or not. If you encounter any probelms, please post your brower version, resolution, and any other variables that may factor in . Also if you have any critiques for the overall design itself post them here.

    The main things I am worried about:
    • displaying at all
    • printing correctly
    • the listings page displaying correctly
    • the listings printing correctly and not 'splitting the pages'


    the site: http://www.kpdk.com/newweb/

    Thanks for your time everyone

    Just a quick test with Netscape 6.2 & 7.0, Mozilla 1.3, and Opera 7 showed a number of rendering problems on the first page. And that's just the PC versions.

    I'd suggest you download these browsers and do your own testing -- nothing beats seeing the problems yourself (and the turnaround time for making the fixes will be much, much shorter).

    alright I downloaded every browser I could find, now the problem comes down to "getting that stupid footer to stay a footer"...anyone have any ideas...

    edit: nevermind, the footer seems to be cooperating now...

    edit #2: just looked at the listings page and boy is it ugly....tee hee

    any ideas on how to get it to look like it does in IE across all the browsers?

    Build a standards compliant site with a standards compliant browser,
    THEN tweak for IE.

    alright I am going to go ahead and go back to square one on my style sheet. As for the general look of the site, are there any comments, crits or ideas?

    On IE6 SP1 with Windows 2000 with 800x600 resolution while listening to Darude - Sandstorm on winamp I came to these conclusions:

    The home page displays well but there is a slight bit of crowding. No big problem though, nothing is getting blocked or anything. Printing wasn't a big problem, though I did only print 1 page. Everything printed out fine...though is it really necessary to have the images printed as well? Maybe look into CSS Media Types.

    The listing page looked good, but I still have the same complaint about printing.

    On Moz 1.2a with Windows 200 with 800x600 resolution while listening to Chemical Brothers - Galaxy Bounce I came to these conclusions:

    Home page looked fine...the spacing was better than it was on IE. Printing...still the same old problem

    Listings page...yikes!! Layout was off for the middle column. The pictures started about three descriptions too late and thus ended with three lonely home pictures at the end of the page. There was some text that looked like it was totally mis-positioned (i.e. it was on top of other text/images.).

    I don't have time right now too look at your code, but don't forget to run it through the W3 Validator.

    I would check you out in Opera 6 but it's not working for me right now...I guess this is about all I can do at this point in time

    Yikes, forums are almost too much fun.

    */takes notes of the songs paradicity3 was listening too/*

    yeah that listings page sure turned out ugly didn't it. Today I am going to spend most of my day redoing the stylesheet...

    and both the pages and the stylesheet validate...so it's just I never looked at it in the other browsers to see how ugly it was becoming, tee hee.
