The Master Design of My Website Pages
This page explains how the overall design template for my web pages sometimes affects how I handle "large" webring controls that don't "fit" onto my pages.
Some of my Webrings require a bit of special handling. Their controls don't "fit" on my regular pages.
My regular pages are designed to fit completely within the browser window on a very old 640x480 monitor. Although no one is buying these today, some people are still surfing the net using them.
This means that I must keep the width of my page to less than 595 pixels (to allow for the edges of the browser). My design uses:
effect on Webrings
The effect of this master design is that all Webring Controls must be less than 470 pixels wide.
Most Webrings don't present a problem. The majority of RingMasters permit me to use my customized version of webring controls. Those who insist on either "no changes" or "only a few changes", usually have Webring Controls less than 470 pixels wide or will permit me to make a few changes to squeeze it in.
Some Webrings however have the combination that requires special handling:
To accommodate these Webrings, I put the unmodified Webring Controls on a special page using a different, minimal format.
Webrings: General Information
Webring Sections and Subsections
The Webring Section is a large section of my website. I have divided it into four major "subsections".
each "subsection" has it's own special "logo".
As you travel in the various subsections you will find, near the bottom of each page, links to pages within that subsection and also links to the other subsections. To go to any subsection, just click on the "logo" or on the text link for that subsection.
The WebRing.com System
This subsection includes specific information about the WebRing.com system.
While not the only webring system on the net, it is the best known and the most used. I own many webrings in this system and belong to many webrings in this system. (I also own and belong to many webrings in other systems as well.) Click here or on the graphic.
The Wazillion Navbars Project
This subsection is a historical section about the Yahoo! WebRing system. It was begun during the early days of problems with the Yahoo! WebRing system in September 2000.
It ended when the Yahoo! WebRing system spun off into the independent WebRing.com system in October 2001. I maintain it for the historical record. Click here or on the graphic.
Webrings I Own and Belong To
This subsection shows all the webrings I own and links to all the webrings to which I belong. This includes webrings in Ringlink, RingSurf, Bravenet and the WebRing.com system as well.
If you are looking to join one of my webrings, this is a good place to start. If you wonder about the webrings I belong to, this is the place to go. Click here or on the graphic.
