I fiddled about with it a few times before it went up, might be something I did. Is it sorted now?

Yep, missing http it was. I've corrected that and also changed the author as it said 'Written by Tahir" and at the end 'I post as Alison'

This is strange, looking at the HTML in admin the link looks like this

h r e f="w w w.mullacottfarm.co.uk" w w w.mullacottfarm.co.uk

but on the front page the link shows as:

h t t p : //w w w.downsizer.net/w w w.mullacottfarm.co.uk

(without added spaces)

I'll amend the article for now but this may be a little mambo bug?


well that is waht is saying you need the "h ttp:" in the href.

I think this is quite a big mambo bug Both on images and references in general it takes what you put in, and tries to second guess you, often actually altering the reference in the article itself This pisses me off big time. You can largely avoid this with absolute addresses, but I do not always want these types of addresses.

I saw your reply after I posted my comments. Fixed the advert now but useful to make people aware of.

Now I'm running IE and Forefox I can see why problems may be less noticeable. Looking at the front page on IE (medium text size browser setting) and the text for the advert is too big as it's heading 2. Looking in Firefox it's fine. Any reason for leaving the intro as heading 2?

What we must do is thumbnail the image. The next article posted will blow the front page format

I'd say not, it will look odd as it moves down the page. I think intros need to be fairly tame in text style terms.

Fine now. I'm trying to only use Firefox and OpenOffice on the new PC as the main browser and editing package, but I will try and have a range of browsers to test sites on. IE does seem more prone to text size issues.

Maybe Tahir has an alternative identity that he uses at weekends.
