Default Screenshot -- 04-13-2009

This is an intermediate screen, representing a group of database entries that follow the search parameters from the menu. I am limiting the number of lines per screen to 25, to keep from causing too much confusion. There will be buttons taking visitors to the "next page" of 25, and to the "previous page" of 25.

Each line will have a link to pull up the full display page, where the model image and all data specs are contained.

What I need to hear is if this looks like it would be enough to take care of the job, and not complicate the screen overly much. I tried using small "nuggets" with an image of the model, but that seemed to take forever to load, since it has to load each image, then resize it, then display it, then move on to the next. Using a simple table format, I can save the image loading to the actual model screen,

I like that kind of table set up..Don't really like waiting for al those images to load be resized and then diplayed myself too!..

So...When is this going 'live'?

I'm going to get about 200 of the models put into the database first, that way visitors will have something to chew on. Then I'll send up about a hundred more at a time thereafter until all 700 models (or nearly 700... ) are posted. Some of the display scripts still need work, but I think I'm closer now than I've ever been before...

Saving the image loading & loading time until arriving at the actual model screen seems like a really good idea and I like the simple table layout you're showing here. It's enough to get you where you're going .....

Looking forward to the final design but man it looks like you have your work cut out for you!
