      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Resources

The CDAP, as its name states, helps in the final stage of assessing how websites may appear to others. It is set up to get reactions from volunteers on how they see your website. It is intended to either flag problems or to suggest a clean bill of health. It is not intended as a place for intense discusson and resolution of problems. These are more properly handled within some of the technical Forums. However it is not a black and white question and there will be shades of gray involved. We hope it will evolve as its users find helpful.

 

In the same way, resources to handle problems are more likely to be found in other Forums. Here we will only provide a few pointers to resources. The most important link is that to the Sticky topic in the CSS Forum entitled "CSS Resource Sites.

 

Those who prefer to read a book may find the following two useful:

Are there any websites to test a website in multiple browsers?

 

I don't mean screen shots, I'm talking about testing AJAX, javascript, etc. Dynamic things that entail a client...

 

Edit: Lol. If I clicked on all the links before I posted that. I might save myself time. ;)

 

http://crossbrowsertesting.com is the solution. :)
