I just ran the page https://www.gauge3.org.uk/g3-spring-event-and-agm
through the W3C validator routine and it threw up 558 parse errors.

I don't have the time (nor will power) to run through them all but several relate to CSS (cascading style sheet) and "missing attribute" errors and the problem could be hidden amongst them.
Some browsers may be more tolerant to errors than others, which could account for the ability of some to see the content while leaving others "blind".

John,
It opens OK with my Apple iPad.

By the way, I am an agreed late addition to the trader count, being Apple Tree Railway, offering gearboxes and BR Mk1 bogie kits.

The other error in the list is regarding "demonstrators" it should read demonstrator. As from last week there was only one table available, not three as agreed last October.

Roy said that I could have a table and three chairs for my demonstrations of software and my machines?

Well this is what happens when you employ a well-meaning amateur John. The 'Wix' system was selected by Liz (and initially set-up by her) and I just took over the day-to-day running of the site. From what I have seen thus far, it was a good choice by Liz as it is a fairly straightforward system to learn & use, which would probably not be the case if a more "professional" (e.g. complex) system had been chosen - probably needing a professional IT person to manage it (which I am not). I might also mention that we are receiving quite regular queries via the site (we've had three this week) - so whilst perhaps not perfect, it does seem to be helping G3 to reach out.

Unfortunately, I don't have the knowledge, time or multiple platforms available to resolve these matters and can only check the site through the 'window' of my own W10 laptop. I did recently do some 'phone' checks using my wifes iPhone and this also seemed OK - my own Android phone being very long in the tooth now. So my apologies to those who cannot use/view the G3S site but that may be how things will have to stay. In my defence, I would remind folk that my hourly rate is very reasonable.  ;)

Hope to say "Hallo" to everyone tomorrow.

Regards,

IanT

Ian,

I wasn't taking a "dig" at you, simply trying to explain why certain equipment may be having difficulties displaying pages.
I explained that the tools you are using are those provided by the hosting company and those (being "free") are always "rough and ready" when compared with specialist compilers purchased separately.
I ran the W3C analysis simply to see if there was a quickly identifiable problem but the error report was so long that I gave up on that idea!

John.

Don't worry, I didn't take it as such John - just pointing out the limitations of having a volunteer workforce.

Returning to the subject of this thread(!) I saw the test build of the new Slaters Midland end-door open wagon recently.  Expect others have also seen it now, but laser cut plywood, cast brass separate bolts fixing etched brass strapping and the underframe fittings and brakes the same as their van and brake van.

Looks very nice and worth the wait.
