Default therumelier.com re-sized

Hi guys, FYI, Rumdog 46 has completed re-sized all the photos on my site so that it loads much faster and is more user friendly.
Thank you very much Chris. Now even I can enjoy it!!

That's much better, there's nothing like website photos to load. There are other things that can be done but they are beyond the discussion on this forum.

Much improved Bob!

In the past a number of pictures on some pages just would not load on my computer and other pages would even crash my browser.

Now I can enjoy your site the way it should be. Thanks!

awesome rummelier, one of my computers was crashing loading your site before, but it could be from salivating at all the rum.

That is certainly a good improvement though thumbnails for full sized pictures would be even better!

On another note the site displays differently in FireFox and Internet Explorer. In FireFox the menu is a bit difficult to use and read. You might want to play around with the
a.NavBar CSS settings. Padding margin and height for instance...

Count, I'm not sure those options are available to me but I will check. I noticed on my wife's computer the problem with the nav bar but I thought it was just because it was a Mac!!

The options should be available to you as I checked them from the CSS code of your websites template. You just need to find the CSS file and the appropriate parts in it (the options under a.NavBar in the CSS I guess) and change them, save it and reupload it to your server (Make sure to take a backup copy of the original CSS file you're going to edit).

In my opinion if you change the a.NavBar settings to the values given in the example below, looks better in FireFox but then again I don't know how it will look in Internet Explorer 6, 7 or 8 so you need to experiment. The goal is to try to make it look the same in every browser. Again, take backup copy of the CSS file you're going to edit incase something goes wrong.

Code:
a.NavBar {
background-image:url(http://webhosting.web.com/imagelib/sitebuilder/layout/temp_01_2.gif);
background-repeat:no-repeat;
color:#000000;
font-family:Tahoma;
font-size:12px;
font-weight:bold;
height:20px !important;
margin-top:8px;
padding:5px 0px 0 13px;
text-decoration:none;
