TIPS and TRICKS for the USS King Website

Welcome to the USS King website. To further enhance your enjoyment of your time spent aboard, the following may help you:

* Links - Other pages on the website are underlined, so that when you pass your mouse over the link a hand will appear. I have tried to keep links to other websites to a minimum except on links page, so that when websites change we can identify the broken links and make the necessary modifications. I have tried to be consistant when going to a new page through a link. The new link page opens to a new window and should keep you at the website after you close the newly linked page, i.e. a high resolution photo or a webpage that has been linked from another page in the website. Links to major webpages are shown thus.

* Photos - All photos should lead from the thumbnail to an enlarged, higher resolution graphic. A camera icon links to a single photo or newspaper clipping on the website.

* Text size - For those of you that have vision problems and a scroll wheel on your mouse, hold down the control key on your keyboard while scrolling over the text, it should enlarge or reduce depending on the direction of the mouse wheel.

* Sounds - Not all music plays the same way, Internet Explorer uses your default player as in Windows Media Player. The bell graphic on the Memorial Page rings when you click on the bell.

* Graphics - Some graphics change when you pass your mouse over it, from one photo to another. Also most graphics/photo thumnails should have a text description that pops up when you run your mouse over it.

* Warnings - A warning to the viewer will be preceeded by the Shore Patrol armband.

 Warning or Disclaimer
This site is loaded with Java Scripting (not coffee, although some of the features were built with Coffee Cup tools), Flash (animated objects), straight HTML (hypertext markup language) and carries a multitude of file types. Not everyone’s browser sees the website the same way and computer firewalls, such as Norton and others need to accept ussking. com. A couple of settings should take place.

First of all let us talk about Trusted sites. If you open up Internet Explorer and click on Tools
then Internet Options, you will find a Security tab. Click on Trusted sites,

then Sites and you will find a place to enter https://*uss-king.com.

 

 

 

Secondly, the subject is ActiveX controls. In the same Internet options, Security section, click on the Internet globe. And then click on Custom Level, you will see another series of options. The most important here is to enable Run ActiveX Controls and Plug-ins. ActiveX has control over plug-ins like reading a PDF document or watching a video and the whole menu system that was built with Javascript.
Thirdly, what is allowed or blocked with your firewall program. This I won’t go into as each program is a little different. The point is that you have to understand a little about your computer system. I hope this helps with your viewing pleasure.
 
Please contact the WEBMASTER when you find a problem or have a suggestion for the site.
