/ NEW ARTICLE: Swiss Route on Les Courtes - by Jack Geldard
Jack Geldard reveals all... http://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/page.php?id=1083
There is a definite accessibility issue here (and on other articles) when using computers with relatively small screen sizes - e.g. my ASUS EEE PC which is only 800 pixels wide.
Scrolling to view large photographs isn't a problem, but the current coding means that large photos force you have to scroll to read the text. Given that the design on UKC for accessibility is generally superb compared with other sites, this is a bit of a shame.
Unfortunately it's a classic example of a new feature (big photos) causing an unintended consequence. Could you perhaps ask Nick to have a look and see if there is a quick fix.
PS Otherwise another great article - you were spot when you said you have loads of good content lined up.
Yes - the initial photo was auto uploaded and came out 1000 pixels wide - which is too wide for some users, so I have now changed that to 800, which is the standard we use for large images in this type of article.
People may want to print these topo articles, which is why we try and keep them as large as possible - but you have a very valid point about accessibility and I'll speak to Nick about it.
By the way - I have emailed you about a different topic.
