I wanted to think about other things for a while... I'd love to hear 
any suggestions as to where I could improve it. I honestly don't know 
what other questions to ask, I've had no other criticism bar the 
Safari issue so far.

No criticism here. Just some light entertainment and food for thought:
-- If it can be said a page exists for a reason, just what is the 
reason your page exists?




Woops forgot to change the email address to the list. It's a fair 
comment, but I'm currently looking for work in the Liverpool/Manchester 
area (UK), hopefully it'll get me some interviews...

[WSG] page loads in safari and then jumps to the middle

2006-11-03 Thread Rob O'Rourke

Hello there,

   I've been putting my CV together but I don't have a mac for testing,
a friend of mine who does said that when the page loads up in safari it
immediately jumps to where it says 'Web designer and developer'. I'm
stumped as to what might be causing it.

   The page in question is at http://robert.o-rourke.org

   Anyone run into a similar problem before?

   I'm planning to make the cut-out thing smaller, I was developing the
concept and haven't re-done any graphics yet.


   Cheers,
  Rob O

RE: [WSG] page loads in safari and then jumps to the middle

2006-11-03 Thread Steve Green
I'm running Safari 2.0 and it does jump. However, it does not jump
immediately. When you hover over a link the page reloads and this is when it
jumps (not always to the same place). The same happens if you press the Tab
key after the page loads. It does this even if JavaScript is turned off.
Sorry, I have no idea why it's doing it.

Thanks for confirming that Steve,

I've taken all the javascript out because its kinda pointless in this 
instance. Can you check if the same happens on this page please?:

I've removed the anchor link which might have been the reason for it... 
guess it's a process of elimination from here on.

RE: [WSG] page loads in safari and then jumps to the middle

2006-11-03 Thread Steve Green
Wow, it's even worse now (or maybe it would have done this before but I
never tried it).

If I hover the mouse over a link and leave it there, the page continuously
reloads and it jumps up and down between the Cocktail Bartender and Web
Designer subheadings. It gets slower and slower till the 'beachball of
death' appears and I have to force quit the browser.

We've seen some weird stuff in our time but nothing quite like this.

poop... I don't think on online cv that breaks safari is going to get me 
very far...

I've stripped out the CSS now... any joy?

It seems to work ok in swift except it loads up with the high contrast 
large print css for some reason.

It's now jumping on load to the bit where you have:

object style=display:none; data=#robert-orourke class=include  
type=text/html/object


just before

h3 class=summary titleWeb Designer and Developer/h3

so it looks like something to do with the object referencing part  
of the page via a URL hash.


As to why you're embedding the page in itself as an object, I really  
can't guess...


HTH,

Nick.

It seems better but when I hover over a link it still reloads, jumps down to
the Cocktail Bartender subheading then up to the Web Designer subheading. At
least it doesn't bounce up and down continuously and crash the browser.

Nice one Nick, I think you've cracked it

Those objects are in there to reference my personal hCard from my 
experience ones its one of the microformats design patterns, I was just 
trying to be all fancy-pants clever so I've used hyperlinks instead.


Cheers for the help guys, 'preciate it

Is that even with the objects removed? If so I'll take out those links 
altogether and get on the uF-discuss list about it.
