Virtual Valvori Site Specs and Technical info

Technical information and browser compatibility

For those who care about such things the following section describes the various technologies used in the creation of this site, and how they work with (or not as the case may be) the various popular browsers.

The following technologies are used in this site, and although it is not essential that your browser supports them it will make your visit to Virtual Valvori a much more interesting.

CSS - Cascading Style Sheets are used widely to control the colours and layout of this site.

PHP - Most dynamic content on this site is PHP based and is mostly used to include external pages in the main page..

SSI - Server Side Includes are used in this site for the correct formatting of components that occur in some pages where PHP cannot be used..

JavaScript - Several JavaScripts are used for small things such as cookies and the make Valvori your homepage facility.

Cookies - used to remember links that have been clicked so that the background colour associated with that link may change becoming lighter the more times a particular link is clicked, giving the impression that a visitor is wearing a path through the site.

Flash - Macromedia Flash movies are used throughout this site to display copyrighted photographic images in an attempt to cut down on casual copying. If you see none of the larger images then you probably need to download the small Flash plugin. Sorry for the hassel but I would rather not find half of my photographs on someone else's site again, if i can possibly help it.

Browser Support

Since most of the world currently uses Internet Explorer the site has been optimised to work best with IE6 which will display everything correctly. As time goes on I will resolve some of the problems other browsers have with this site.

Ok, so it's not finished yet and lacking in content (though it does already have more content that the previous version of the site!). The basic layout is fine and all links and dynamic content are running correctly in IE6. Oh what's that... You browse with Lynx and it looks crap? Well get a proper browser because it seems you have not yet realised that the world IS a web page!
