    That didn't take long... did you change any of the files?

    Slideshow hangs over to the right by a couple of pixels, and to the left by 1 pixel on Firefox 3.5.7

    Font is horrible for the bits that say " School is open as usual " etc.

    Top menu looks slightly odd. I think its because the font is quite large and bold compared to everything else, set on a reg background.

    Generally theres too many different font sizes and styles. For example where it says "Click image to download latest edition of Kingsway News" the font is so small that when the italic is applied it makes the font look blocky.

    and doesnt validate http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...Inline&group=0


    Otherwise its very good.As it stands it one of the better school sites ive seen.

    No, no I didn't.

    Ah its back. Weird as I its appeared to be a config issue rather than the webserver itself.

    Just my 2cents, i think the nav bar at the top, needs to be a different font, something smoother, and perhaps centered too?

    but other than that, looks very clean and nice! me likey!

    I think links on the submenus on the side of pages should be a distinctly different colour than the txt of the main content. red like the main bar perhaps.

    Its a template created by Sysman_mk with a few alterations to fit the school.

    Thanks! Yes I may play about with the menu fonts a bit as I am not 100% happy with them.

    Thanks, I will give that a test to see how it looks. I am wary of putting too much red on the page, I hate red and too much looks awful (and of course all the schools I am making websites for have a real bright red as their colour!)

    Our colour is a really dark navy blue. Looks ok on the school logo but far too dark and heavy for a website. I just told them it was tough, that it would look rediculas, and gave them a lighter blue. And to my utter astonishment they accepted it!!
