For the first time, Daylight Savings Time ended in November instead of the last weekend in October.
Let's do a little website "yard work" to get our sites ready for winter, shall we?
Inspiration for this newsletter did not actually come from the daylight savings trivia - it came because I visited an O&P site recently that is experiencing Clicktile Dysfunction (if you really want to know whose site, call me up and I'll tell you.) I COULD NOT CLICK
on their Patient Information buttons
Two big buttons, right in the middle of the screen - seemingly very user friendly and legible - except they wouldn't work.
One said Office Info
and one said Patient's Corner
Couldn't click on either one.
CD. How embarrassing.
How come nothing happened?
I use Mozilla
for my browser.
I switched to Internet Explorer - the buttons worked.
I don't want to have to switch to IE.
I want it to work with Mozilla!
What about the people who don't/won't/can't switch?
They might think your site doesn't work at all.
What a shame. A missed opportunity for what could've been the start of a beautiful relationship.
Make your site be all it can be.
