  • I noticed you made some edits to the Extensions page, in the Technology section. I'm still working, albeit slowly, on reworking the Extensions page. Therefore, I wanted to discuss one of the changes you made to the live page.

    Below each of the images in the Technology table, you changed the text from center alignment to left alignment. The norm on the site, so far, has been center alignment. Do you think left is better? (Apparently, yes.) I'm curious why. I'm not saying left is wrong. It's just different from what we've seen before, and I'm interested in your reasons. :-)

    • I didn't reformat any of the text cells, only the cells with the pictures in the left hand column. With the pictures "centered" the edges don't line up and the table looks "messy". I only line up the edges. I'm good with the site norm for center alignment of text.

      Here are the before and afters:

    • Aren't the images the same size? If so, their edges should always line up, regardless of the alignment chosen. Your "before" example includes images that look lined up to me. What am I missing?

    • Perhaps my screen is wider than yours? Im using a 1920 x 1080 monitor. Here's a screen shot of what I see in the before/after picure...

      When the entire screen is filled with the uneven photos, it looks really bad.

    • Ah. This screen is the same size as yours. When I typed the previous reply, it was on a smaller monitor.

      When Rastislav and I first created those tables, the text automatically appeared below the images. Now, they appear beside the images, if the screen's resolution is high enough. I think the ideal solution is to center everything and to force the text to appear below the images. I'll work on it. I was aware that this was happening, but your edits show the consequences of not dealing with it. Thanks for that. :-)

    • No problem. Glad I could "help". :-)
