Lots to do yet … sort out the slide show and build the gallery pages but am slowly getting there … it’s looking a little ‘bland’ - the client quite likes the clean feel and the jewellery looks better on white (it was yellow bg) - I’m thinking maybe a full screen abstract image … diamonds or something which I have no problems producing but wondered best way to implement it so that it stretches etc … this has been covered but with so many iterations I’m struggling to find the right course for me to take using 6.1 - please please any other comments most welcome … Roger
Hi Dave … does your suggestion relate to ‘responsiveness’ ? - I am using FW 6 … it appears that ‘Backdraft’ is for ‘7’ - I cannot really justify the albeit small cost of upgrading to 7 … my website building is more a favour for friends I make little other than costs … nest time a job comes in I’ll build in a little for the upgrade.
Looking at the site on my iPad it looks OK and not too bad on my iPhone …
Roger, although I haven’t explored FW7 yet - I only downloaded it a couple of weeks ago and things suddenly went hectic with illustration work - I would thoroughly recommend Backdraft at least as a starting point.
I’m not exactly code-a-phobic, but I’m not very good at it and BD got me up and running with responsive. In about 15 minutes I had a page ready that would ‘just work’! No real styling or whatever, but everything relaid itself as expected etc. which was a first for me.
I’m not a full time web developer, so I only dip into the web when needed and for me BD is a great time saver. I’m sure you’ll find it helpful, and if you’re more code savvy than me, then you have every chance to pick things apart and get your hands dirty.
Thanks Trev … code savvy and me don’t mix I’m afraid … I build about one website a year generally for a mate for little or no money … I have enough trouble keeping up with developments in other software I use on a regular basis to have any time to learn to code … little inclination is another factor … also I’m quite stupid !
I’ll go ahead with BD … thanks for your advice - Rog
