Thread: Site Help

    ok, this is my first attempt ever at making a site and I'm getting on quite well. The thing I can't get right is the animatoins using xara. I see loads of sigs using them and the qualitys great, so what am I doing wrong?

    The animation looks amazing in xara but when exported loses all its quality, can anyone help?

    My site

    honestly, this is not done for hits, I really do want to create a good quality site (yes, using shitty geocities ).

    do you mean the letters swelling in the img http://www.geocities.com/trshadysworld/tr.gif?
    that gif is huge man
    something isn't right
    for the limited effect i don't think the file weight is justified as it doen't add content
    i'd recomend using MM fireworks for animating and optimizing web graphix
    i imagine xara has a very wizard interface 'type text here' 'select animationstyle' etc. fireworks is a real pixel mill so you'll never need to get anything else for the net but may have a learning curve compared to xara
    pallette bredth and the way the image is anti aliased will also effect the visual flavor of the gif

    also [b] & <font> tags are being depreciated so use [i] & [b] rather than [i] and [b] and use CSS to style your text [also get cool control of links and scrollbars] also too many empty

    s
    try to use logical heirarchic tags like the heading tags better
    shame it&#39;s all M&#036;, beware of the fuz and view source

    Thanks for the reply and advice , I&#39;m using ms frontpage and only no basic html so the second paragraph made no sense to me . I suppose I&#39;ll try fireworks as you recommend but the sigs on this board look excellent and thats using xara so I wanted to know what I was doing wrong.

    Thanks anyway

    btw, that link to the pic don&#39;t work but yes it&#39;s the animation at the top of my page.

    yeah the link is weird
    initially i just put in the url of the img without bb tagging it as a link and the board automatically made it a link which didn&#39;t work
    so i edited the tagging so it was a link and it still won&#39;t work
    but if you paste it into your browser it does work
    some kinda referer detection i guess

    you&#39;ve gotta learn html, it&#39;s the bottom line of this web thing and soooooo basic and microsoft aren&#39;t good people to learn from so be careful
    read alistapart to see how crazy it can get while learning some helpful advice

    ok, changed it back, and undergone major revamp.
    Getting mm studio now, that should help me.

    to find a host for that kinda game you&#39;ll need to find someone with asian or eastern european language skills to help you register where they don&#39;t worry so much about copyright
