There are plenty of pages that scroll on the original site (800x600, which is what it appears the original site was designed for) http://www.presbsciotoval.org/packetind.htm http://www.presbsciotoval.org/pulpit%20supply.htm http://www.presbsciotoval.org/PSVMinutes/Minbase.html http://www.presbsciotoval.org/council%20minutes/psv%20council.htm http://www.presbsciotoval.org/2002_meeting_schedule.htm http://www.presbsciotoval.org/directory/PSV%20Church%20Index.htm Heck, even http://www.presbsciotoval.org/ itself However, since the premise is that the current site is in need of an overhaul (even looking at those URLs is a disaster. The more you look at it, the worse it gets), here's the question: Where do you draw the line when it comes to scrolling? What do you do to minimize it? I have changed a few pages (locally) to use two or three columns, but I'm still open to ideas for the main page. TjL ps - What's more interesting is that the site has been modified since 2003-12-19 when (supposedly) there wasn't anyone still working on the site. Perhaps they were on through 12/31. If I get the position, the first thing I'll look to do is change the password on the account (kind of like changing the locks when you get a new apartment). -- A: "Where would we be without the Internet?" B: "Probably reading." A: "Yeah, right, we'd be watching TV" B: "So is this better or worse?"
