What Reboot said. Increase the width. You can make the type and graphics larger without losing the basic layout. Limit the color pallet. Too many colors on each page, and each page is different. Consistency helps for navigation.
Thanks. I actually started out with larger pages and fonts then suddenly thought of contracting everything for smartphones. At that point I was running two pages for everything with the user choosing from the home page whether to go with large or small. Seems from what you guys are saying I need to go back to that although the larger version is about a week's work behind. Points noted though, many thanks.
So I brought back the larger pages and fonts which I'm hoping is going to be a reasonable compromise for all access devices? I'm gonna have to get to grips with iFrames I think with this kind of site. Observations much appreciated,
No offense as you've probably put a lot of work into it, but, you shouldn't be using iWeb. It is way too outdated to make a modern website that will carry into the future or be mobile friendly without adding code to the pages. The website is not up to modern standards and is getting older day by day.
If you want Google not to downgrade the search results you need to get the site mobile friendly.
What you should end up with is one site for large monitors, and another that it would redirect people to if they are on a mobile device.
For now until you get it up to modern standards at the very least you should standardized the colors on each page, backgrounds, toolbars, etc, and please get rid of the black background pages if nothing else, terrible.
I'm guilty of the same, my site isn't mobile friendly, need to practice what I preach.
Okay thanks Reboot... iWeb is the only tool I have some idea how to use but I take your point. Originally I was only really aiming to advertise a service but one thing led to another and it became a bigger project than I originally anticipated. Thanks also for the links.
