Novice Website Builder – Vista Buttons Navigation Software Review

After launching my first website, I decided that my navigation buttons needed revamping. There's a lot of software out on the Internet to help with this effort, both free and paid. I chose to buy Vista Buttons software and after downloading it and using it on my new website, I decided to write a review.

I've mentioned in other articles that you get what you pay for and so much of the free navigation software out there is limited in functionality. Vista Buttons offers a version of the software for home use on a single computer and a version for business use that permits download on up to 3 computers. Because the business version offers a more robust selection of button and menu styles, I went ahead and bought a one-year subscription. It was a bit pricey, but again, you get what you pay for.

Being a novice website builder and having built my first website from scratch, I found Vista Buttons very easy to use. The application is extremely user-friendly. If you're not familiar with HTML and CSS, it might be a bit intimidating when it comes to applying the resulting HTML code to your website markup. But, it did not take long to figure out what to do, though.

Vista Buttons offers hundreds of button and menu styles, a very large selection of icons, and the ability to apply text in many languages ​​to the buttons and menus. They also offer demo videos that walk you through using the product. The product is so straight-forward that I had no trouble after watching only one of the demo videos.

I give the software an A. Building your first website is a fun endeavor and having some good quality peripheral software to help only make the project more exciting and enjoyable.

The Right Scale For You and How to Choose It

Buying a scale can be a complicated task as there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of different type scales out on the market today. With a little bit of help and assistance it needs not be too difficult though.

The first thing you need to do is decide what items or products your scale is going to be weighing. This involves knowing roughly what your heaviest item is going to be, combined with how small the divisions you need the scale to go up in. You will also need to know how large the item is that you are going to be weighing.

With this information to hand you can then begin looking at the different different types of scale out there. One common misconception is that you can have a single scale for weighing absolutely anything. This, quite simply, is incorrect as we could never recommend using a pallet scale to weigh letters, or vice versa.

Typically a scale weighs to 3000 divisions. For instance a 3000 gram scale would go up in 1 gram increments, a 6000 gram scale would weigh in 2 gram increments, a 3000Kg scale would weigh in 1Kg increments. This certainly applies to most scales but is not a rule for all. As an example, the Ultra75 weighs up to 34Kgs but in as small an increment as 5 grams. This is because it has been designed to cover as many applications as possible giving it a broader user base and therefore making it less expensive.

Scales that are to be used in shops where you will be selling by weight need to be trade approved. An example of this is when a sweet shop owner sells 100 grams of sweets to his customers. Because you are declaring that there is a certain amount of product on that scale then you need to prove that it is accurate to a certain standard. These would normally be sold as Trade Approved, Weights & Measures Approved or Class III Approved. These all mean the same thing, and that is that that they conform to a standard which says that they are accurate enough to be selling on. Medical scales, generally used in surgeries or hospitals, also need to be Class III approved.
