Well, the idea of a single page is really great, although it might make sense to think more about how long it will take to process for some content of website and whether in the end it will bring you really the desired results. That is, for example, excess of such work can take extra time and energy than you plan and this can affect your enthusiasm and other plans for the worse. And it is not known how long it will take to reanimate your enthusiasm. Confused



exactly...it boils down to what goals you have for the page(s) forum, etc...hopefully, this new host will work out..etc

Well, I put my test pages through their paces and it would make more sense to make series 1 like the others, as some of the page weights are too large for mobile. The only other pages like series 1 are the pages for those weird German 8mm films - Minikillers and Das Diadem/Der Goldene Schlüssel.

They all received a 100% score for accessibility, and 97% for performance though!

It looks like the situation is resolved. Since we live in mobile time, then it really is more sense to make series 1 like the others, according to your tests, Piers. Wink

Right, thanks for your support everyone, series 1 is now in line with the others. I've checked pages here and these but if you notice anything I've stuffed up, let me know.

Looking good. I've jumped around a few episodes and it seems to be all working fine. I find the TV Crimebusters Annual more amusing every time. Surprised Big Finish haven't expanded it into an epic audio series. There was a great page in it all about criminals' rhyming slang, entitled "Tumble This Guff". "Oi! Shut the Rory!"

Everything works well with the first series as before for me, noticed one typo here:

https://www.dissolute.com.au/the-avengers-tv-series/series-1/121-the-far-distant-dead-other.html

Minutiæ

...lists Reed de Rouen's chracter as Zun Garcia...

Well, I'm sure there are other typos on the website, you can check them with https://languagetool.org/ Wink

Already found one:

https://www.dissolute.com.au/the-avengers-tv-series/series-1/123-dead-of-winter-other.html

Minutiæ

...the basis for much later episodes as well, such as the forein invaders in The Living Dead...


P.S./ Although I have used this program on a regular basis for Steedumbrella, sometimes I found some sort of typos that this and similar online checkers don't find.

I'm thinking of sprucing up my plot summaries by removing the in-line actor credits in parentheses.

For instance, instead of:

Quote:
Sub-lieutenant Crane (Danvers Walker) is ushered into the office of Captain Nash (Noel Coleman) by the escorting officer, Williams, (Richard Pescud). Nash informs Crane that he’s to be held under close arrest, accused of passing on information of a top secret nature to a person or persons unknown. Nash hopes he has a good defence and Crane replies, “Yes sir, I’m not guilty” and is led away.


It would become:

What do you all think?

I personally find it convenient to have the names of the performers listed in the plot summaries, as this contributes to a better perception (sometimes you read material and cannot remember what a performer looks like in the appropriate role, you need to go to another page and study it - when a performer is listed in the story, you don't have to go to another page or waste time remembering the name).

I agree with Denis, I find it is useful mental reference to have the names once, when the character first appears, especially if they have a fair bit of activity in the episode. Maybe not needed for minor ones who are only mentioned once or twice in the summary.

I would concur..however, even with the 'minor' ones, you end up with a total picture...

I do like looking at the cast pictures. I find myself doing that while reading the synopses!

Okay, best of both worlds, I'll leave them in but re-code it so you can choose to not show them.
Seeing Franky's note, maybe I should extend it to turn them into pop-up cast photos in line with the plot.

That would be my ideal, but it sounded like a lot of work to implement, so I didn't dare suggest it Smile

as franky commented...it may indeed, be a lot of extra work. will it be worth the added effort. yes. it all boils down to time. do you have it, or feel up to the added task.
