Thoughts and feedback appreciated

merlin » 周三 6月 11, 2014 8:38 pm

Hi everyone

This is a site that I’ve asked for opinions on before but it’s quit awhile since and a lot of work has gone into it since I last proffered it for a review so any comments would be welcome.

http://www.merlin66.webspace.virginmedia.com/

Unfortunately, because my ISP doesn’t support the MIME Types for the videos and wont let me AddTypes via a htaccess file they wont play. However, they will play in a Chrome browser so I’ve included them for now to show what I want to do if I decide to up my game to a proper host.

If anyone can tell me why they work in Chrome and not other browsers I’d love to hear it. Not too technical please. I may have graduated from the nursery slopes but I’m still somewhat nervous on the piste proper.


Regards and thanks
Merlin

Nice big letters design, should work great for your educational purposes (guessing). However text on buttons are not centered correctly on second level pages, pages have strange titles including the word "index", buttons background images are over-compressed leading to distortion, and there´s typos here and there.

About the browser usage:
- Firefox: legacy and lot´s of plugins,
- Opera: speed,
- Safari: platform,
- IE: testing.

Thanks for the feedback.

This is kind of embarrassing. I checked the site this morning and the videos are now working on my Firefox browser. I can only assume that the .htaccess file that I uploaded a couple of days ago has actually kicked in? If anyone can confirm that this is the case on other browsers it would be good to know.

I checked the site and the only button that seems to causing any problems is on the extraInfo div of the whales q3. I’ll have a look at it and try and see what the problem is.

The “INDEX” buttons are merely a means of letting the user go back to an index of options. I didn’t think this would be a problem but as a user you obviously thought so therefore, something else for me to ponder over.

Typos on an education site – not good is it? But as a dislexic ;-) I do need these things pointing out to me sometimes. All my replies have to be done in Word with the English – British dictionary enabled. then copied and pasted. Ok, I admit it, I do tend to be a bit sloppy at times !!

Thanks your time and effort

Thanks for your additional comments Xain-Pro.

The button in whales q3 is baffling me at the moment. There seems to be no reason why it should behave like it does. Obviously I’m missing something but, at the moment, I’m not sure what. However, I’m sure perseverance will – eventually – pay off.

The most puzzling comments though are the picture observations. Whether, viewed via my local drive or via the web site I see no problems with the images. True the whale logo is a bit iffy but I thought that the unintentional blurring gave it a deep-sea perspective.

You mention using canvas. While I have dabbled and experimented a little with canvas I thought of it more as a drawing medium. However, I will have another look at canvas and see if I can pick up on what you mean.

Thanks for your pointers

Thanks to your advice I’ve found this web site that seems to be what the doctor ordered.

http://www.html5canvastutorials.com/tut ... as-images/

Many thanks for introducing me to a new resource, it should keep me occupied for quite awhile - especially if I have to rejig most of my pages. Still, thanks to you I have found another piece to add to my jigsaw of knowledge. Who knows maybe one day I’ll get the whole picture but with 70 just round the corner I think I’ll stick with just gathering as many pieces as I can!

I’m a bit confused – not an uncommon state I know.

Taking Whales q1 as an example.
This is the container that I put the image of the blue whale in.

Why would putting the image in a canvas API improve on this?

#extraInfo
{
font-size:2.4rem;
font-weight:bold;
margin-top:3rem;
padding:.5rem;
visibility:hidden;

display:-webkit-flex;
display:flex;

-webkit-justify-content:center;
justify-content:center;

-webkit-align-items:center;
align-items:center;

-webkit-flex:1 1 auto;
flex:1 1 auto;

}

As for mobile devices. The site performs just as well using Firefox on my Samsung tablet as it does on my desktop. Not sure how it would perform on a smartphone because, I’m sorry to say, I don’t own one.
