iWeb is driving me crazy today. I uploaded an update to my website http://www.stuartluff.co.uk last night and all looked fine. When I got to work today I decided to check how it looked on a different machine. I found it had acquired a black stroke around certain objects. Namely the grey box at the top (that contains the stuartluff logotype) and the green bar at the bottom.

Can someone please take a look and tell me if there is a black out line on the aforementioned boxes as I have emptied the cache, Reset Safari, Rebooted and everything but they still seem to be there. I am 100% certain they were not there last night when I was at home.

I cant post a screeny as I am at work.

Thanks.

BTW this happens quite often, does anyone know why? :confused:

sorry...I don't have any experience with iWeb, and very little experience with web stuff in general. I do know that your site looks good, though, so kudos on that! :)

Best of luck.

after using iWeb extensively on my sites, i think you will have to wait several days.
who is your ISP?

its not NTL is it?

ISP is Blueyonder/Telewest which is basically NTL. Why?

Usually i just have to keep reuploading to get it to 'clear' the lines.

check your CSS

Check your CSS. It looks like you have a 1px border -- border: 1px #000000 none; -- in those areas.

ok...sometimes the NTL network is cack. they use transparent web proxys that can take up to a week, depending on what you upload, to refresh...pain in the tits.

a good way of getting the web proxy to clear is to type /? after your URL.

other than that, its a waiting game, but it will change to normal

thankfully NTL have got much better lately, but if you are uploading the same files time after time, your gonna get this problem.

they do it to save them masses of bandwidth.....coontz!

Yeh thats a different page. It only seems to be doing the lines on the homepage.

I definitely didnt put it there myself and I dont think iWeb uses CSS per sei.

So you want to break into being a web designer, using iWeb?
Then, looking at your keywords it seems like graphic design,
not web design, is your focus.

At least, that's what your site is telling me.


Translation: what's your site really about? Your visitors need to know it. ;)


As for the line issues, I can't see them. In the frameset or in the actual embedded page.

Which both look identical, so I'm not sure why the need for frames?

I do however have the 2006 on a line below and outside the bottom green footer. The rest is ok, but increasing/decreasing the font size of the page doesn't fix it. Also, even though the content is not tall, nor wide, I still have a vertical scrollbar even at a 1024x768 window size. Since there isn't anything to scroll, there shouldn't be one.


If cache is a big problem with your ISP, then you might want to consider a local set-up of apache (which you should already have). Then you can at least test it out locally, and get it "somewhat right" before actually posting it up. Then, you can always use browsershots.org to check for cross-browser issues as well.

I didnt say anything about wanting to be a web designer :confused: I am a graphic designer, thats why the keywords relate to graphic design as you have noted.

My site says exactly what it is about on the very first page so not sure what you mean there either. :confused:

If you are being 'ironic' use smileys to avoid confusion. Its amazing what those little buggers can do.

Regarding the 2006 copyright thing I have spotted that it is still text and not a graphic which I will change now to make sure it displays correctly.

The reason I use frames is to hide the crazy address the website is really stored. If i dont use frames when you go to www.stuartluff.co.uk the address bar changes to http://www.stuartluff.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/stuartluff which is not nice to look at. I am a graphic designer thats why everything has to look perfect. :D

The scroll bar I will look into it could just be I have the page size a little bit too big. My screen res is 1680x1050 so I have never noticed it.

Ok it seems that it is iWeb that is the culprit.

I checked the files before uploading and the black lines were there again. I have since 'exported to folder' (twice) and checked all files, finally it seems to look ok.

The copyright on the wrong line should not be an issue now and the scroll bar looks like it was caused by having an additional 100px footer below a 100px header and 480px page. So thanks for your help guys. If you wanna check it out again and see if you spot anything else a bit strange then I would much appreciate that too.

Cheers
