    Ok, I am pretty much done except some tricktips photos & video clips.

    Can you tell me a few things? Just pretty much how the content is, how fast it loads and the graphics?

    Browse through some of the pages to see how they come up on your resoltiion, and also, how long it takes for the rollovers to work.

    SplufD, I need you.

    What is the code to define text site as point 10, and where do I put it in my HTML code?

    Everything looks fine to me, although I think you should have verdana as the font. Is that Times New Roman you are using?

    Spluf to the rescue :rambo:

    Insert the following code in between the HEAD tag in your html:
    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    body {
    	font-size: 10pt;
    }
    -->
    </style>
    That redefines the body tag to make all the text 10 points.

    As far as your site goes, I like it, looks good. You may want to consider preloading your mouseover images.

    Another thing I noticed while clicking through your site, is that the header at the top takes a while to laod on every page. That's because every page's header uses images with the page name in it. For example, throughout the site, if every page used "home_r3_c1.gif" instead of changing it and using "Spots_r3_c1.gif" on the spots page (both the same image), subsequent pages will load much faster, because images will be cached. Just a tip for ya. Good work on this site, it's come a long way!

    You'll need to add to that:
    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    body, p, span, div, td {
    	font-size: 10pt;
    }
    -->
    </style>
    As the default property for any <p> etc tag will override the <body> style. Also keep in mind that 10pt looks drastically different on a Mac from a PC... totally differnet pixel heights

    Thanks Spluf and Brak, but all people here who skateboard have PC's .. I hope most users from other places will too.

    But thanks, and spulf, how do I preload all images?

    Idont feel like renaming the banner at the top, unless it really neccesary. I will do that if preloading donst work.

    So how would I come baout doing that?

    The preloading is different than the banner issue. You have a different set of banner images for every page, which is very unnecessary. Your don't need a different version of every button, for every page. This is a waste of space and bandwidth! It's noticeable too, because as you click through the pages, the banner trickles into view on every page. Clear your cache and then click through your site and you'll see what I mean. I'd recommend going with one set of images for your entire site.

    As for the preloading, most ppl have a preferred script that they use, it's very easy and Dreamweaver tends to make very bloated JS. Here's a post I found by Transio on preloading images. Have a look.

    OK thankyou, so tonight I will go through and rename them all to Home_r"#"_c"#" so it will be nice and quick. By the way, look at my homepage now, before you do, increase your text size about 3 points so its extra large, then visit my site. You will notice how the scripts works for the text in blue, but now orange, why is this?

    How can I fix it?

    I got it to work on a few other pages, but this one seems to be tough.

    Haha, never mind, before that orange text I had

    <font face ="arial" size="2" color="ff8900">

    So it was getting confused, I just took that out and it worked fine. Thanks.

    OK, good, now out of my 50 MB space of my site I now have 40 MB left instead of 20! Thanks Spulf, worked great, by the way, can you clear your cache and tell me if all of the CSS text defining worked, and if it loads quicker? Or anyone?

    Thanks
