"Great looking site!   I love the way it looks.  There are a few problems for me: the navigation is really tough to read!  I don't know what screen you designed this on, but I suspect HUGE!  I'm viewing it on a 15"…"

"Hi Dave,   I still see IE as the devil browser, but as you suggest they have tried to fix a lot of the bugs within the browser as they have started to realise that since they have lost the monopoly on being the only browser offered with a new…"

Internet Explorer 9: Bright new day? (or just another false dawn??)

Hi,I wonder if anyone has tried out the beta version of IE9?  It only runs on Windows7 or Vista, so stone-agers like me (XP, linux), can't run it.  Reading the blurb, though, it looks like a major departure from previous IE versions:  support for W3C standards (hurrah!) and (it looks like) a lot of HTML5 features as well.  If this is really Microsoft seeing the light and realising that web standards is the way forward, it's going to make web design SOOOO much easier!   Natch, lack of backward…See More

Dave Cooper replied to Dave Cooper's discussion Any recommendations for blogging software? in the group So what's blogging then?
"Thanks Harvey. I've installed Wordpress for a play and it's certainly impressive. Now (of course!) I'm wondering what else I can use it for! What's the downside to just using a free blog on Wordpress, does anyone know? There must…"

"Hi Dave, I hope you are well. Without hesitation I would recommend WordPress, it is very easy to use, flexible and has lots of great features including image resizing etc. WordPress is available in two formats, self hosted and hosted by…"

Any recommendations for blogging software?

Hi Bloggers,I've been requested (=ordered!) to set up a blog for a couple of friends who are planning a motorbike trip to Beijing.  What they need is something that is going to be dead simple to upload to, and which can handle tasks like auto resizing photos. They are not particularly technically savvy and they'll probably be uploading under fairly primitive conditions.   I guess there's plenty of blogging software out there, so, anyone got any recommendations?  Stuff I know about includes php,…See More

Gerald Hornsby replied to Dave Cooper's discussion A curious result on Google in the group SEO - The secrets
"It is very interesting. Old sites do rate more highly than newer ones, but it would be very interesting is HTML5 was to blame. Waiting for Harvey's investigations ... Gerald"

Harvey Raybould replied to Dave Cooper's discussion A curious result on Google in the group SEO - The secrets
"Hi Dave That is very interesting, did you check the ranking before you made the changes? I will need to do some more investigation on this becasue it would be great if html5 was beneficial to SERPS. Looking at the site, it is highly optimised for…"

A curious result on Google

Hi,I don't do SEO.  Most of the sites I'm involved with are the sort of amateur/geek affairs where if you posted the site on the bottom of a rock on the far side of Pluto the users would still find it.  Also, from my glancing acquaintance, SEO all looks like a bit of a black art.  A few weeks ago, I got cornered/cheerfully volunteered (my version/their version) to update an old website for the local Friends of the park group.  The website was an old campaign site that hadn't had any content…See More
