Fixed, Fluid, Flash display

7 04 2009

Lian has asked us today to check out the different ways that a page is displayed in a window. So there are 3 main ways. I will include with each of them a pretty link so you know what I’m talking about.

Fixed – This is the form of display which doesn’t move with the window when you increase or decrease its size. Have a look at the La Cloche website

Fluid– This is the kind of display that adjusts with your window size and always makes the information fit the window size. Have a look at the Alliance Francaise Wellington’s website

Flash– Now for a Flash navigation. This is has animated displays, integrated videos and interactivity on the website. Little windows pop up and you have rolling images to name some of the features. Take a look at one of my favorite websites that uses Flash, Roots Canada’s website.

So there we go. Have a look next time you’re on a site and see what kind of display you’re getting.

Hey, found your blog after looking at Cory’s. How are the twins these days then? It’s been a while.

Your blog seems a little unloved so I thought i’d be nice to it and leave a comment. Now you have two… so don’t say I don’t do anything nice will you.
