    My trips stories and pics all in one place

    Decided I needed to get all of my trip stories and photos from travelling the Oz outback and other 4WDing destinations in one place so Ive created a blog!

    http://www.touring4x4.com/blog/

    Have added plenty already but some are words only as I continue to add images.

    Comments and feedback back are VERY welcome.
    Canon 1D, 5D, 7D & D2000 plus lotsa extras

    My photo website http://www.touring4x4.com/
    Travel & photography blog: http://www.touring4x4.com/blog/

    Good effort and well done for sharing that knowledge and passion.

    A couple of teething issues.

    Most pics on the home page are showing the red X maybe check the links.

    Second point is a personal thing - the site looks a little thin. Not sure if it is becuase I use a 30" and it probably looks ok on a 24 or if it is a formatting option your end? If it was a touch wider it would feel better.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Have refreshed mine a couple of times and all of the pics are showing.

    I agree on the width and that was how the templete I used as set up. Have gone in and hacked at the code until it went wider.

    hmmm

    Birdsville and Lake Eyre pics come up - none of the others. These were the 2 pics that came up last time as well.

    Can someone else please tell us if they can see the pics on the home page...thanks.

    As far as the width, that looks better. Many years since I played with HTML coding but I seem to remember you can set width to 100% as well as a defined pixel such as 1024. Would take a little search of HTML to figure it out.

    However, it looks good now so maybe don't mess with what ain't broke huh?

    I can see the pics now.

    I like both the white and the black backgrounds so I am not much use there

    that's a lot of work you've put in there. well done. i like the way the image gallery is laid out. i also like the way images under lay the text in areas. about the only thing i'm not to keen on is the white text on black background.
