    Hi,

    I just spent a small sum for someone to redo my site and someone on another forum has been telling me the navigation menu is appearing at the bottom of the page instead of near the top right where it should be. The trouble is, I can't see this on my computer. The site looks fine to me. It's also very hard to keep asking this one person (the only one who's said the menu was messed up) to keep checking my site to see if I fixed it.

    Can someone tell me if they are actually seeing the menu at the bottom of the screen and possibly suggest ways to fix this if it's indeed true?

    Note: I realize my site comes up with 70 or so validation errors. These are caused strictly by the external rss feeds and go away when the feeds are removed. Thank you.

    The site link is at the top of this post.

    OK... I think common sense was left at the door when this was written....

    Why are google video and google image search pages on seperate pages to the google home page?

    Because they aren't the thing that most people want. The vast majority of searches on google are for web pages... not for images and video clips.

    Why is google so successful?

    Because it is simple. Yours is not.

    Sorry for being harsh but People should not be making new search engines as far as I'm concerned. there are enough good ones already. The money has been earned.
    No ma'am, we in IT don't have a sense of humor we're aware of.

    Be that as it may, minute44, I posted in order to find out if my navigation menu was out of place in some browsers. If my site is unsuccessful or not popular or not sensible that is my problem. I really just need to confirm if there is a display problem.

    Menu looks to be in the right place.

    Menu looks fine to me. I'm using WinXP with FF 1.5.04 and IE 7.

    Find out what OS and browser version this other forumite is using. That will go along way toward being able to replicate the problem.

    Okay, the person gave me his operating system and browser. They are:

    Windows XP (Pro) and I was using IE

    So if anybody is using these, I could really use your help in checking how my sites' navigation menu's are displaying. Otherwise, I may sadly have to pay to have the site done over again. Thanks!

    Looks fine to me, XP Pro / IE6, also just tested on XP Pro / IE7. Have them clear their cache, reboot, and try again.

    I'm thinking it could be a monitor size issue. I'll have to take a look on my other computer when I get a chance. (btw - could I replicate a small monitor by just shrinking my browser size?) In the meantime, the person sent me a screen shot of the problem:

    Yes, monitor size is simulatable by resizing your browser window. In fact, Firefox's Web Developer Toolbar gives you the ability to resize the window the a specific resolution size.
