Aside from the boring "we played at this park on this date" job...no, not really. Summer is our "relaxing" period. We're getting back into it now.Just picking up on Granite City Brass put forward at the start of this thread, having a quick look at the site overall it's a great site but have the band done nothing worth reporting since July?
Are you already aware that the "events" tab doesn't work Pat?
Flash menus don't work for me - I use Firefox with flash blocked to stop the pesky adverts, so I only saw the menus when I clicked on a "play" button. People with iPod or iPad can't get Flash even if they want it, so they'll never see the menu. The effects for the menus aren't that special - you could use ordinary images to produce the same look, and be far more accessible.
Thanks for that.The Events menu item on dublinbands.com doesn't work for me (Firefox, IE8 ) - there's a trombone player's head in the way! Even though the image background is transparent, the image is still blocking mouse access to the menu item. You need to move the image down and out of the way (and chop him off more at the waist or make the page taller to fit the whole image in).
Same here chopped off too - but i would also recommend that you use PNG 8 graphic format for the images of the 'cut out people' to remove the jagged edges from them. By using PNG 8 you will make it work in older browsers too (such as IE6 - which some people still use) Set it to index transparency blending in with white.Thanks for that.
