[Pro] First page is bigger - why?

Why is the first page on my website bigger than the others.

I used the Master pages to create the original tabs at the top but then the pages afterwards come up much smaller. All this shows up when published/uploaded.

Any thoughts?

Cheers

They look the same to me in Firefox, Safari and Opera. That’s not saying they’re not different sizes, I just don’t notice it in any of the browsers I have.

One thing I did notice is the at the URL never changes when I go to different menu items. I guess that means you’re using framesets. You may have your reasons for this, but I’d suggest you consider breaking things out into separate pages.

I’m a beginner so please forgive any ignorance on my part. All I know is that when I run across sites like this it frustrates me because I can’t bookmark specific pages.

Good luck.

I don’t think my server will let me.

I agree it would be a good thing but I don’t know how I do this in FreewayPro. Could you explain to me how I can achieve this?

Cheers (and thanks for answering! - perhaps it is my Macs)

Your widths all appear to be 820px going by the black band under the tabs - which by current monitor standards is a touch on the small side. Is that what you thought was different on the different pages?

No, the actual whole first page is much larger when it first opens up and then when you look at the other pages it reverts back to the smaller size.

I am not sure why.

Next page screen shot:

You can see the tabs at the top are far smaller - everything is smaller!

Sorry, you may have to unravel that last post into two different screen shots as it won’t allow HTML code.

See the difference - that is the entire screenshot. The first one is much bigger.

I see it on your screenshots but I am not getting it here in FF or Safari!

Possible some sort of server cache issue?

That’s certainly not what’s happening in Firefox on my monitor. Does it do the same in Safari?

Maybe clear Firefox’s cache and see what happens.

Very probably. They were cheap!

I am also wondering how to achieve this different name on every page.

I am using a parked space (or some other technical term) - the original is http://www.fstaylor.co.uk and that lets me use individual names for each page - but when it is transferred to Free Parking, then it all gets put under one name for every page.

Is there a way around this?

Have a look at your site using NetRenderer - this will give you an idea how it looks to PC users using various flavours of IE Moved

You get what you pay for - you can get some very reasonable fully featured hosting from some of the guys that frequent this Forum to avoid this sort of thing.

Your site runs a lot better on the original host http://www.fstaylor.co.uk. It’s much smoother and the load times are much faster. And yes, there you go, individual pages. Much better.

You are absolutely right - it helps if you put ‘screen ruler’ at the start of what you want to measure. I was primarily comparing (my excuse and I’m sticking to it) and they were the same - though obviously not 820
