Updates to the site in 2017

17th August 2017

I've been experimenting with how the site looks on different screen sizes and have changed the minimum Desktop size to be 801 pixels. This means that large tablets in Portrait mode will now see the Large Mobile Version of the site, and in Landscape mode they will see the Desktop Version. This is because there were some issues with the way the site was displaying on large Tablets in Portrait mode. All other screen sizes, Mobile Phones and Desktops over 801 pixels etc will still see the same version as before. I do hope this doesn't spoil the experience for anyone but if you do have any issues with the change please let me know.

Welcome to the New and Improved Arthur Lloyd Website

Rebuilding the site has been a huge task, taking nearly 2 months to design, build, and test, but now it is here I do hope you enjoy the new look and the changes to the way it works. The site should now work correctly on Mobile Phones, Tablets, and all other devices, but if you do find any pages that are missing or look odd on your device I'd really appreciate it if you would Contact me about it here. The more details you can give me about the problem, such as what device you were viewing the site on, the type of problem, the page address of the offending page etc, the easier it will be for me to fix.

If you have any questions about finding your way around the site please check out the FAQ page.

Many thanks for bearing with me over this period, and to all the people who were involved with the testing of the new site, and for their design suggestions, which was very much appreciated.

So now, dive in and enjoy!
