Still playing with the home page layout. I'm wondering if having the pictures displayed four wide causes you to have a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of your screen. If the majority do not have the bottom scroll bar, I will leave the picture display set at four wide.

Too wide without scrolling. I am pretty rusty on html any more but there is a way to make the table auto size to conform to full screen dimensions whatever, they are..

My desktop has a 16x9 ratio monitor, haven't tried that.

The table size is set to 100% rather than to a specific pixel width. If it's causing a horizontal scroll, it's the thumbnail size that's pushing it. I suppose I could reduce the size of the thumbnails a bit. I could increase the width of the of the center column a little bit more.

For those that answered yes, did three wide cause a horizontal scroll?

The image sizes can be set to autosize as well, H, V or both by ratio... I have run into this before but can't remember the solution or the correct tags... Tables will get real squirrly when content in the cells goes out of bounds...

It's been a long while since I did "roll your own" page editing. Most everyone uses an editor, which is the easy way until something doesn't work like it should...

There is a workaround on this, just have to figure it out. It might be to set the table width to std monitor size and allow the table and cells to expand to full screen on monitors that will allow it... or center the table regardless of screen size... or reduce size of the thumbnails...

Let me think about it.

I increased center column to 64%, outer columns are 18% each. Any better?

Rob, I took a quick look at the source... let me look at it in the morning to figure out where you migh hack the thumbnail width or sapcing. See it's php on the fly and not striaght htm... Doable, just where to make adjustments.

<br />

I just noticed there are a couple of <div> containers for pic frame and pic shadow in there. Maybe if I got rid of those...?

I could go back to three columns but that affects what's shown on the bottom of the album.php page.

As far as the weather box, I'm looking for something that will fit in along the side in that spot. I don't see that NOAA provides anything like that. I'd prefer to use them if possible as they're my choice for online weather.

Rob... I went through the HTML on this 4-5 times. I think you are on the right track as far as setting the center table to a fixed %. This stuff can get really messy with tables built into cells. One thing wrong/omitted and it all flies apart at the seams... There are tags in there that I am not familiar with which appear to have something to do with autosizing the pictures on the fly, to fit within the cells.

{THUMB_SIZE} does what? Referenced to?
width="{S_COL_WIDTH} ??????

{ } tags are referenced to?

I did notice the the thumbnails max out at 175 x 131 either direction but not sure what sets this?

Wish I could be of more help here and pinpoint the fix... I am rusty and years behind current HTML... Are you going trial and error editing or try putting this through an up to date HTML editor?

NOAA is the best weather. Suggest borrowing the NOAA little square graphic on NOAA page, put it on BBI home page and linking it to to the Point aux pins daily weather.

I have something else for you that I can donate, will send the link PM.

Here are some alternative weather widget options if the NOAA one isn't doing it for you:

The Weather Bug Widget looks pretty good. Its similar to the desktop Widget that I use on my Windows7 machines, which is pretty decent.

Conis - I get thumbnails, but when I click on the all I get is the RED X

I am at the office and I have to scroll to get all the pics on it also and now can't get it to remember my username/password

IE or FireFox is saving your password locally. Its a setting in the browser where it will automagically insert your password into the password field when you type in your username. You can delete it in FireFox by clicking Tools - Options - Security Tab - Saved Passwords button and removing the password for the site (or all of them if you wish).

In IE you can remove it by clicking Tools - Delete Browsing History - Delete Passwords button.

Suzy - I have to agree - when it was 3 wide I never had to scroll back and forth to see everything - Not sure what the advantage is

At least you guys should be able to go up to the menu bar and find zoom and set the size a little smaller.

For Ron and Susie, and any others who may have a scroll bar on the bottom of you screens. Try changing your display settings for your monitor. Do this by right clicking your desktop, from the menu that opens up; XP users select "Properties" or Vista users select "Graphics Properties". From there you should be able to change your display settings. Here are the settings that work for me: On my widescreen laptop with a 15.6" diagonal measurment, the display is set at 1366 x 768; I have a 19" (diag measurement) monitor attached with the display settings of 1280 x 1024. See if that helps you.

Right now the poll would indicate leaving it at four wide. Unless the poll changes drastically, I'm inclined to leave it. The reason being is that the same table structure which displays on the home page is used on the bottom of the main album page. So, if I go with three wide on the home page, I get three wide at the bottom of the album page. I really like the random pic's at the bottom of the album page and usually get caught up checking out the older photos if there are no new ones to look at. I think the random pics will increase the use of the album and also increase user comments on older pic's since it's so easy to view and add comments now.

I guess I'll just try to live with it - All my other sites come up fine with no scroll bar - I don't want to change that
