Maybe it wasn't such a good idea!

Maybe it wasn't such a good idea! - Wed, 13 Jun 2007 06:31:00

Well I finally decided to launch this re-vamped website of mine having been convinced that if I don't "It'll just never be good enough to publish, you'll keep finding faults!"

I've been plugging away and plugging away, and I knew there were things i needed to tweek. However I thought I could launch it and fiddle at a later stage, because the person I was talking to was right, when I start something I'm a perfectionist and I wont leave it alone (which is why nothing ever gets STARTED! LOL

Anyway, I've put it online (a major feat in itself) and I don't know what the hell I've done, but when you go onto the site there's just a blank screen until you left click on "play" VERY ANNOYING!
Then when it does play, the animation goes all haywire and SOME of the galleries/ boxes play on a loop..... also EXTREMEMLY annoying!
A couple of the galleries won't let you click through them completely (the "live gig photos" gallery has about 20 pics on it and you can only see 3, it's like it gets stuck!)
I'm INFURIATED at myself, I don't know what I've done and I daren't take it back down again!!!!!

Any ideas, suggestions, free advice, expertese greatly welcomed (I'm starting to wish I'd paid to have it built professionally! :rolleyes: )

That's really weird Si, i just asked a friend on MSN to try it, and they're the same as me, blank screen until you right click play. I really don't want to take it back down, looks like I might have to! :rolleyes:

I just tried it also. Same results, black screen until you right click.

I get a black screen, even with the latest flash player. Looks like the file code is broke.

Yeah I'm the same Maryann..... I keep going round in circles!
Can't be the file code Ken, because I've published it 3 different times, each time generating a new index.HTML and the same thing keeps happening!
It's probably something dead simple that I'm overlooking! Very, very frustrating and the graphics go on my van this week (if I've got time), so it needs to be up! cussing

Helen: I tried again the same way as before.

It comes up, music and all. I can access the pics but some revert backwards instead of going to the next one (saw your pic in the group shot, nice one! BTW : is that who I think it is next to you??)

Plus the fact it worked before you tweeked it, means it probably is something simple then.

That is confusing!! confused2

Yeah I've got the same problem and I can't seem to figure it out at all. All the galleries are set up the same, so it's weird! The "Live gig" section has about 20 pics on it and for some reason we can only see 3!
(saw your pic in the group shot, nice one! BTW : is that who I think it is next to you??)
Well that depends on who you think it is, but if you think it is who I think you think it is, then no it's not. LOL
It shouldn't be anyone you know, they were all friends of my mate Lynsay's (the one at the front right) and if you're thinking it's who I think you're thinking it is.... that person NEVER lets anyone take her photo! I think she's frightened she'll get recognised and extradited or something! ROFLMAO! roflmao

I know it is, it has to be and thanks for posting Cerise, it's just so bloody frustrating! I've been in 3 times to check the publishing settings for the HTML and the box for "pause at start" is definately UNTICKED.... so I can't think what i'm doing! :rolleyes:

Ho Hum! <img border="0" alt="[Puppy dog eyes]" title="" src="graemlins/sad5.gif" />

Re: Maybe it wasn't such a good idea! - Tue, 19 Jun 2007 06:53:00

If you changed your mind a few times and ticked then unticked the box that could be PART of the problem. The other PART being sometimes a programme developes a glitch, and if it happens at a time when you ticked the box, it may not register the fact it has since been unticked.
A bit like the old saying 'if you pull a funny face and the wind changes, your stay like it. nutjob Hope that helps.

Re: Maybe it wasn't such a good idea! - Tue, 19 Jun 2007 07:27:00

I said I'd been in to CHECK the settings, I didn't say I'd altered them! It (the box) has always been unticked and I haven't changed my mind! :rolleyes:

edit: so no that doesn't help.

Can see it now...

Couple of problems to my mind, not sure if it's just me who's affected. Some of the galleries don't work properly, the one of the Monument boys is a prime example, as I can cursor between the shots but after a second it reverts back to the opening shot. You click to arrow forward again and it moves to the next shot, but then reverts back to the opening shot.

Is it me?

For some odd reason the "live gig photos" gallery and the "midge ure live" gallery jump back

While it's not perfect, it's a vast improvement on the state it was in when I FIRST posted. Personally I think it's better to at least see all of the photos rather than 3 out of 20 odd!
Does anybody have a suggestion or explaination as to why it's happening? A solution anyone? Well then could you cut me some slack? I know nowt about building websites, I'm the first person to say so, I think it's looking alright considering I'm a complete novice and have had NO help from ANYONE!
As I said before, I'm working on it......... that and starting a new business (and all the meetings that entails), renovating one house, searching for another, searching and viewing commercial properties AND being a full time Mum! :rolleyes:
edit: oh and I forgot planning a wedding! I'm sure John would be re-assured about me forgetting that eh?! :rolleyes: bemused
