The Rhino Roams

Theatre Rhinoceros logo
I have been working on Theatre Rhinoceros’s web site for about six weeks, and have a first edition ready for comments and suggestions.

I had hoped to gradually improve the site they already had. Unfortunately, the free hosting service for non-profits had a server crash just as I was about to start work. Not only was the site down hard, the hosting angels had no backups. Yuk.

Today’s touches were to make a multi-level JavaScript navigation menu slide out from the left.

It works for me. Let me know what you think.

    I found the menus needed multiple points-and-clicks to work in Firefox. They worked fairly well in IE.

    Were I a prospective subscriber, this would drive me crazy. It needs to work equally well on IE and non-IE platforms.

      Good tip… I use Firefox also, and didn’t see a problem myself. After reading your message I experimented and found that FF makes a smaller height area clickable on the menus than does Internet Explorer. I’ll see what lineheight, etc. css settings I might be able to play with to improve the click-ability. Thanks!

    I had no problems using Mozilla on a Win2K box.

    Minor nit. The dark purple arrows (indicating a submenu) against a black background. Hard to see on my screen unless I’m perfectly aligned with the screen.

    Another minor nit. I looked at the menu at said “Hmm. How would I find their address and phone number?” Since my browser can only show a limited amount of information at a time, it didn’t occur to me that it was at the bottom of every page. A “Contact Us” page with address, phone numbers, email all in one place.

    But overall, it looks very nice. Definitely easy to navigate around and find information.

      Re: Rhino

      I added another contact box on the left side below the navigation menus. I hope that the different line terminators will give people a clue that there is more, even if it’s hard for them to see the dark purple. Fortunately, when then hover, they’ll get all the choices anyway. Thanks very much.
