View Full Version : Open-Realty Boat website
07-05-2004, 08:33 AM
well I've finished my first Open-realty project. Man, do I like this script!
Take a look at the website if you like. I'm always looking for feedback. The site is in dutch unfortunately.
Click on makelaardij and zoek to go to the Open-realty pages. The rest is pretty self explanatory. (There's only two items in the database for the time being.)
The site is now hosted with Transparent-tech.com so if it's down, someone's in trouble :-)
Cheers and thanks!

A very nice looking implementation of Open Realty.... Well done!!
The graphics are very fitting to the theme of the site.

Overall is good. if you could prevent the horizontal scrolling I thing it would be better.

Thanks for the feedback. One question, Openrealty what screen resolution are you running. The site was designed for 1024x768 so if you're running that and you still get horizontal scrolling I'll see what I can do, if you're running 800x600 it'll be a lot harder to fix.
Hope to hear!

The site looks good but I don't know many people that use 1024 x 768 screen resolutions. Most people use 800 X 600 or less. When I am designing a site I gear it for the 800 X 600 user.

Oh boy ....
Now why has no one told me this before :)
I guess I have to start a 1024x768 promotion campaign.
Or I could of course get myself some shorter 'waves', but I'll figure something out.

I'm at 800 x 600.
But here's a link to a browser and display statistics that you will find interesting.
IMO, most regular folks use 800 x600. Web savvy, designers, programmers might be into 1024.
Hope that helps.

Those statistics confirm what I was thinking, more and more people are using larger screen resolutions. More than half is using 1024x768 and over. The real savvy's would more than likely be on 1600x1200 or at least 1280x1024. Regular folks with some money will have a nice new computer with flat screen set to a fixed resolution of 104x768. Those are the ones that buy boats. I figured if you can't afford a resolution higher than 800x600 you can't afford a boat ....
Who wakes me up....
Oh well I'll let the client decide.

I figured if you can't afford a resolution higher than 800x600 you can't afford a boat ....
WOW. That's a mighty profound statement.
Do some research and you'll see that most people that can afford a boat, are using old computers that they only upgrade when they absolutely have to. If their livilihood is not reliant on their computer, It's just like a microwave sitting in their kitchen.
Oh well I'll let the client decide.
Your client should not have to decide. You as the designer should design the site to appeal to the majority of users that can afford to buy the product you are selling.

I guess you convinced me. I was really joking about the statement that a boat owner can afford a large screen. I was just trying not to have to change the format ... I guess I'm just lazy.
Thanks and I'll give it a go.

I hear ya. But I do know a lot of people that have a lot more money than I do and don't want to spend any of it upgradong their computers. They'd rather spend it on other things, like boats. I have a friend of mine still looking at 640 X 480 and refuses to spend a dime to upgrade. But he has plenty of toys.
Myself on the other hand cannot afford a new boat yet I'm running 1024X768 or higher on dual monitors.

Well in the end I decided to follow your advice. Take a look again and see if it's right for your resolution now.
Those guys with 640x480 screens are just not allowed to buy a boat, can we at least agree on that :-)
Thanks again for the advice, it looks better now too.
