Overall I do like most of the changes with the re-work of the site. One issue I do have though I only noticed today. I decided to read the Steve Fearnley write up this evening from the Woodturning home page and as I scrolled down to read it I noticed the text occasionally jumping up and down, on further investigation this is because the images which are part of the story and display at the top continue to change even though they are not visible and they are of differing depths which causes the text underneath to jump up when shorter ones display and jump down when the longer ones display.

This is extremely disconcerting when trying to read the text as ones eye suddenly is not focussing on the correct piece of text to read next..

Can someone please fix this somehow? Perhaps ensure all images are identical sizes would be easiest.

Hi Stuart

Thank you for your comments.  The images are all the same size it was the caption that made the text jump. The caption now overlays the image so as to not cause the jumping.

Thanks that fixed it on that page.

Another quite minor thing is that on the main woodturning page a similar issue happens when you mouse over the projects the steve fearnley item causes the rest of the text below to move down. As I say it's not a big problem but I think it is best from a design perspective that this kind of thing does not to happen at all.
