@tonytsing You could do this but you would need to add some code to be able to do it.

What a wonderfull video!
It gives a nice touch to a site. Would it be possible to mouseover the links and see the IFrame instead of clicking the link

@x59uk Hi
There are two ways to do this;
1) Use ContentSlider from the DynamicDrive website (which is what we used)
2) Create thumbnails that show the different slides(pages) within the iframe, but also set each page to have a redirect to the next slide(page) after x seconds.

@LivingWandsworth Oh good. I’m not the only one with nav bar problems then. It was freaking me out for a day or two! Thought I was doing something wrong. Apart from that, I really like the software. Used to work for IPC magazines so very familiar with DTP applications. Checked the serif forum – any other problems I should be aware of? Thanks for helping.

@dwill1967 The market is still there, better than ever. Still lots of problems with the nav bars which should be fixed in the patch coming out in March, so not doing much on them until then.

Thanks for the replies. I used to live in Wandsworth – Cavendish Road. Used to spend a lot of time in Balham Library when I lived in Hildreth Street too. Is the market still there? Some of the nav bars don’t display peroperly in Google Chrome. Spaces are inserted between some of the vertical java ones.

Will be doing Nav bars soon.

WP doesn’t use fluid design, I don’t think any of the most popular sites do.
I’d recommend using a width of 975px, generally I follow what MSN is doing.

Do you know if you can use fluid width in WebPlus? If not, what would you recommend as the largest width to use without losing too many people with older monitors?
