Your help kindly requested on a new web project I just completed  
Okay,.. I admit to having been MIA recently... I was doing something I said I'd never do... another "FAN SITE." Damn. As if I don't have enough updates to do as it is for my paying clients, what in the world would possess me to give up my nights of sleep for this? Well, pretty simple... The fan sites that I do were created out of my admiration for the performers... I feel creatively fulfilled when I complete them... not that I don't for my paying clients, but my business really became a "job" more than a love of what I do.

And this is where I ask for your opinion and help. :)

Those of you who use browsers other than Safari or who use Macs, if you could help me view the site to make sure all my coding holds up and my iframes are rendering correctly, etc. I checked it over VERY early this morning to make sure the links were all correct, but it was at 3am and I was a bit bleary-eyed from examining the coding for a problem I was having. Any help on any of the above - plus general constructive criticism is always welcome! :)

Here's the link (in honor of MEMPHIS' Opening Weekend...):


(it's not titled yet, but it's done AND sitting on my "trial" server... I know...):P

THANK YOU so much in advance!! And after this week, I'm officially Chad Kimball'd out. ;)

So, I found this DAMN old post on Kevin's board (dated July 2002!!!) Where I talk about being sad that I was unable to attend Chad Kimball's one man show... Damn. I really HAVE admired his talent for over 7 years. :P (And I really AM old!!) :P

If anyone is interested...


Again, THANK YOU to anyone who can help me and give me their opinion about the above... it's been so long since I've done a site that wasn't being driven by someone else, that I fear I can no longer be objective.

Nice! I have more to say later when I don't have a deadline, but I like it so far!

And here's how it looks in Safari on my Mac. The only weird stuff is what happens when the background image starts tiling towards the bottom:

AH!! Thank you!!! I'm going in to fix the fonts... because, for one... it's tiling my background image.... for another it looks ridiculously big on your Mac.. ;P

Thank you for this!!

Ha. Well, also, I should've reduced it so as not to make your comment area ridiculously large. ;)
Sheri: Chad Kimball 03shutterbug93 on October 17th, 2009 06:59 am (UTC)
Haha! It's good - better to see the problem! :D
Sheri: Chad Kimball 02shutterbug93 on October 17th, 2009 07:18 am (UTC)
I hope I fixed it. Thanks so much for your input!! I needed to know that since I'm not seeing that on my side. :)

The tiling doesn't happen at all now!
Sheri: Chad Kimball & Sherishutterbug93 on October 19th, 2009 03:13 am (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know! :)

Me liking the whole website. Wow, getting your creative flow going on, which is always a good thing. Great job!

Thanks for taking a look, Rayna!! What browser are you using on your Mac and does it make his "Credit" page...


...look weird?

Thanks for your input!! I want to test it on multiple browsers...

I have Safari and Firefox, let me take look at it.
Kananigirlkananigirl on October 17th, 2009 08:35 am (UTC)
I'm looking through the site. It's good on both on my 2 mac browsers Safari and Firefox. I don't know if you're that picky, but http://www.shutterbug93.net/CK06.html. Godspell and Sweeney part, you forgot the little indent?
Sheri: Chad - Hockadooshutterbug93 on October 17th, 2009 08:40 am (UTC)
AH! Thanks SO MUCH!! That's the kind of stuff I love to hear so I can fix it! :) Going to fix it right now! And thanks for checking on the Credit page!!!
there would never be anyone for me but youjessnic85 on October 17th, 2009 08:29 am (UTC)
Sheri, we viewed it in both Firefox & IE, and it looks great in both!! :)
Sheri: Chad Kimball 02shutterbug93 on October 17th, 2009 08:38 am (UTC)
Ah, thanks! What version of IE are you using? The latest update? (I only ask because the latest IE update used to make my MTG site look like crap and I'm kinda afraid of it...) :P
there would never be anyone for me but you: ship: jim/pamjessnic85 on October 17th, 2009 06:15 pm (UTC)
So sorry for the late reply, but we think we have the latest version (IE8?), and it looks pretty much the same as it does when viewed in Firefox. LOVE the site!! :)

Thanks for checking and for your reply! Now I just need to find someone who uses google chrome and I'll be set, I think.

I'm using Firefox and it looks amazing, Sheri - no dead links that I've found yet. And it's a fabulous site! I know what you mean about making a site out of admiration for a performer... clearly. And this site for Chad is a fantastic tribute to that! :D
Sheri: Chad Kimball & Sherishutterbug93 on October 18th, 2009 02:10 am (UTC)
Thanks so much for taking a look, Shawne and for your nice comments. I know that you definitely do understand me in that respect! I actually went back though some of my old LJ entries and also found one from 2007 where I talk about loving Chad's performance in LITTLE FISH... just why it took me so long to get the courage to introduce myself to him, I will never know. :P

Thanks again for checking out the links as well... Now I need to find someone who uses google chrome and I'll be good to go, I think. ;)

No google chrome here but I would like to say that I love the site and that you are having some great pictures there. :) What I noticed is that I can't scroll down to see all pictures of "Into the Woods". Can it be or is it just my computer?
Sheri: Chad Kimball 03shutterbug93 on October 18th, 2009 11:16 pm (UTC)
Hi Sabine!! Thank you SO MUCH for taking a look at the site!! You know I always value your opinions! Is it only the "Into the Woods" page that you're having problems with? I'll look in to it and see... I may not have set the scrolling option on that pop up window. Thanks for letting me know! What browser are you using?
Sabine: Micki's placesabine10 on October 19th, 2009 12:03 am (UTC)
I'm using IE7 and yes, it was only the "Into the Woods" page. Hope you had a nice weekend! I'm off to bed now. :)
Sheri: Chad Kimball & Sherishutterbug93 on October 19th, 2009 03:15 am (UTC)
I went through the coding of the gallery page and tried to add scroll bars... when you have a chance, could you look at it again and see if I've fixed it on your end? Thanks so much again for looking! :)
