Nick, it might be worth adding a few added entries to the list pages (e.g. Marinas & Pontoons) to see how the formatting holds up. It all looks great on a desktop just now, but on any mobile device the screen restrictions push the latter entries down below the reach of the left hand advert and the formatting of title vs content looks a bit odd. As none of the lists are long enough to replicate this on a desktop view, it might be worth giving it a try to see whether the same problem will appear in future as the lists grow?

Example of how it renders in iOS which shows the potential problem being described (this only happens on phone, not pad):

Thanks for this MrMcP, but I am aware of that.

Code for blank space is manually added to both the lh and rh columns to suit the individual page as the list grows.

It's amazing what some nagging and a little spat can do. There, this is the page in Firefox12 (and yes it uses ADP, same as it did before);

Nick,
On the Visitor Moorings page, Cardingmill Bay links to Ardfern (do they run the moorings?).

On the same page, the entries are arranged alphabetically mainland first, then islands starting at Tobermory. I'd find it easier if they were more geographically arranged, e.g. north to south. Similarly for marinas. It's not going to be simple with Campbeltown in the mix. Is nowhere else on the east side included?

Derek.

I note you describe Argyll one of the best cruising grounds in the world and have a pic of a sleekit ocean greyhoond wi' its spinnaker up but ignores the beating heart of cruising:

On behalf of all "normal" cruisers could we have more realistic, accurate even, depiction orra ra realities, ken?

And shouldn't the pole be on the windward side?

It is on the windward side....

A bridle would be good so that he doesn't make two wee poles out of one big one

He looks the right way up to me, and more Scottish than Polish.

Yep it looks OK to me to. The lugs are for a bridle but not for the pole up line, for the pole down line. All the load is upwards and in strong winds the pole down will be straining hard to keep the pole from skying. The pole up line is almost redundant when flying in strong winds. The open part of the latch should be pointing up to allow the guy to come free easily.

Thanks Derek, have fixed that link.

The two pages you mention are the only ones that aren't totally alphabetical because I didn't feel it to be completely appropriate. What to do will be decided in due course . . . Rome and all that :D

Many thinks for your input.
