I'm also seeing a lag on your site and I'm on IE7. The lag is caused by your front page main animation causing the left-sidebar animation to be running at very slow speed.

When I go into the internal pages, the left-sidebar menu works fine.

Why did you have to put that ad box right there slap bang in the middle of everything? It sort of messes up the whole thing ...
And I struggle to read the "our sponsors" text aswell, it's the blue on the red that does that or the font maybe ...

On the 3d page ... why not make the images links aswell ... because I first didn't see the link because it's the same colour as your other text

The w3c HTML validator also found 39 errors in your codin ... It's something to look at.

On one op the other posts there is an example of how to remove the "click to activate and use this control" ... I'll find it now and Quote it here.

One little trick to work around the "Click to Activate and Use This Control" problem
(due to a plugin issue with microsoft)

Your embed code is:

Code:

Code: [ Select ]
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/s wflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0"
id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">
<param name="movie" value="mars.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">
<embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"
name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
align="center" height="130" width="130">
</object>
  1. <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
  2. codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/s wflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0"
  3. id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">
  4. <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">
  5. <param name="movie" value="mars.swf">
  6. <param name="quality" value="high">
  7. <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">
  8. <embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"
  9. name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"
  10. type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
  11. pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
  12. align="center" height="130" width="130">
  13. </object>

If you ceate a myprintln.js file that simply says:

Code:

// myprintln.js
function myprintln(s) { document.writeln(s); }

and put this in the head of your file:

Code:

Code: [ Select ]
...yada yada yada... 

 <script src="myprintln.js"></script>
 </head>
  1. ...yada yada yada... 
  2.  <script src="myprintln.js"></script>
  3.  </head>

...and wrap your script like this:

Code:

Code: [ Select ]
<script>
myprintln('<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"');                 
myprintln('codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/c abs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0"');
myprintln('id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">');
myprintln('<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">');
myprintln('<param name="movie" value="mars.swf">');
myprintln('<param name="quality" value="high">');
myprintln('<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">');       
myprintln('<embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"');
myprintln('name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"');
myprintln('type="application/x-shockwave-flash"');
myprintln('pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"' );
myprintln('align="center" height="130" width="130">');
myprintln('</object>');
</script>
  1. <script>
  2. myprintln('<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"');                 
  3. myprintln('codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/c abs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0"');
  4. myprintln('id="mars" align="middle" height="130" width="130">');
  5. myprintln('<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">');
  6. myprintln('<param name="movie" value="mars.swf">');
  7. myprintln('<param name="quality" value="high">');
  8. myprintln('<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">');       
  9. myprintln('<embed src="mars.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"');
  10. myprintln('name="mars" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"');
  11. myprintln('type="application/x-shockwave-flash"');
  12. myprintln('pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"' );
  13. myprintln('align="center" height="130" width="130">');
  14. myprintln('</object>');
  15. </script>

LOL, a flash site without an ounze of flash on it.

I think it's too dark for a tutorial site. I dont know, I believe educational sites should be well lit, so to speak.

The tutorial navigation, hmmmm, no. It's gotta go. Floating nav bars, old school, and the reason for the laggyness (not a real word but you know). If you decide to keep it, it should not open up and over lap your main content table. Also , once you open it, it stays open unless you click on something, another reason it should go.

Your css, you might want to put your styles on a external style sheet. God forbid you might want to change the look of your site one day and have to go through 100+ pages to do so. While on the subject of css, you should try using div tags in place of tables, it will make life easier, and give you more control through css.

News and Updates pages, where you have text you should use some padding or margins so your words don't run into the edge of the boxes. personally I would just take out the boxes altogether. All your other pages are showing me this message:

Quote:

As for everything else, it's just fine. By the way, I am viewing it in Safari (Mac). 8)
