Hi,

I have added PowerGallery to one of my customers site's and they are seeing it different to me.

Here are links to the screen print they have sent me

Webpage104--4-10.jpg
Webpagetop04--4-10.jpg
Webpage104--4-10.jpg

and this is the page in the site

Project2.php

Which when I look at it appears correctly.

Any ideas what I need to change to stop this from lining up incorrectly?

Thanks
Deb x

Hi

think your problem is two fold.

First I'd create a new div called - gallery or what ever you want. Give it a fixed width ( of your choice) and then make the L and R margins auto.

Place the div on your page and then place your php code inside that.

This will ensure it's centred.

Second - as I discovered Power gallery is funny about sizes. Your images are high quality so I assume they are rather large.

If that is the case then I'd resize them to say 800* 600/.

Lastly you will need to make some alterations to your gallery code to ensure that you photos are not cropped automatically my Power Gallery. BY default the dissolve show is 782px wide I suspect that the area allowed on yoru page is not 782 hence the allignment issue.

It's not that I'm clever - I had the same issue and support sent me this link

Thanks - I will give it a try....

The problem is it looks perfect in my browser.....so it is difficult to test when it is right.

fingers crossed!

Hi

OK

this is the worst nightmare for any developer! We have all been there.

YOu need to find out exactly what browser and what version your client is using - some old browsers do not render CSS the same

Next find out what resolution they are viewing at and at what colour depth.

I design for 800*600 px in the UK because thats the most popular resolution but I am moving towards 1024* 768


Then test using their settings. Make sure they are not using AOL because AOL can render in weird ands wonderful ways.

If that doesn't profer a solution then do one oer all of the of the following:

1. Take a laptop on site ans show them it's working OK

2. Tell them to look at it from home

3. Tell to look at it from a PC shop

4. Ask themto get their friends to check it.

5. As a last resort post a link on a forum and ask peopel to check it for you and post their specification.
If 20 people respond you at least have 20 posts to forward to the client.

It is a pain I normaly find it's because thie resolution is to low. Remember all websites look different at various resolutions.

Hi

Just before Frost ( Uk comment)

Checked your code, it validates apart from the capital letters and it shows ok from my system in IE7, IE 8, Firefox and safari.

If you want email me a copy of the site and I'll take a look, I can even post it on my server temporarily which will eliminate any possible issues in that .

email address i.edwards@deleteedwards-micros.co.uk

off to watch Sir David

cheers
