    more webpage design

    well, i am at it again.

    and yes, the same website.

    my friend told me she thinks the website doesnt look professional enough, so i am redesigning it in hopes that it will look more professional. what do you guys think of the current menu system?

    Right now I am trying to figure out what to put above the menu. I really have no clue, so if you guys have any pointers, please do tell.

    she said she kind of likes the overall design of the following page:

    www.tyraleang.com

    Personally I think that although it does look somewhat professional, it isn't too great, so I am hoping to add upon that and make a better design.

    Like it a lot better than the girly pink original. The site she likes it ugly. The only problem I have with yours is there is so much white space on the right. I am viewing at 1024x768.

    Well, I like the first one more and I'm sure you already have ideas for improvements anyway you'll find that we all bend over backwards for the significant others in our lives! For me marriage can be enough of a project! sometimes

    Too bad it doesn't work in Firefox.

    Unless my computer is screwed up.

    The page she said she likes looks like crap. I mean that in the most literal way.
    On your bio page I would try to move the text up so its next to the picture. That way they can see the picture and read the text at the same time.

    on my normal website:

    http://students.cs.byu.edu/~dprucs/

    I do a very similary thing where I move the menu and the main content adjacent to each other, and I tried that same technique to move the image and text adjacent to each other but it isnt working!!! ahhh!!!

    Add: align="right" to the <img> tag. And remove the <div> tags around the image. Also you need to close your <tr> before opening another one.

    align tags are depreciated. What you really want is the css property float.
    try
    div.text {
    display: inline;
    float: right;
    }
    c++->visualc++->directx->opengl->c++;
    (it should be realized my posts are all in a light hearted manner. And should not be taken offense to.)

    Good point dbgt. Of course I ran into a problem where I had to use a depreciated tag. It urked me so much to use a <center> tag.

    You couldn't use a div tag to center?

    I don't know. It just wouldn't.

    Basically it was:
    Code:
    <div>
      <div>some stuff</div>
      <div>Some other stuff</div>
    </div>
    But for some reason it wouldn't center the inner <div> stuff even if the outer div's class was told to center everything.

    Try using spans. Divs make literal divisions in the page and I don't think they nest well.
