    Launching latest site

    Just launching my latest site for a school on Monday.

    St Anne's Catholic Primary School Leyland

    Would appreciate a quick glance and feedback if something doesn't look OK

    In both FF and IE the main content section goes beyond the header and footer on the right hand side (see attached image). Personally I wouldn't use black as a background colour in this situation.

    Ta - I'd put a table in one of the modules and it was pushing it across

    . Personally I wouldn't use black as a background colour in this situation.
    Of course - didn't change this from last site - I'll bet you've got one of them fancy monitors that do better than 1024x768 - I've done a quick change to slighty blue tinge

    Ta very much

    *Goes and gets my design glasses out and a red marking pen*

    Header:
    * Site header text shouldn't need to be contained within the image....
    Navagational menu:
    * Top navigational menu would be a lot nicer centred
    Information Box:
    * Standardise the Icon pack you use and sizes
    * Text should be aligned so it starts in the same positions
    Content Area:
    * E-Safety flash file is streached and therefore pixelated
    Footer:
    * Compression visible in the "Activemark 2008" logo
    * "Saint Mary's RC Parish Church" logo is stretched and therefore pixelated.
    * Text should be a darker colour
    Page Source:
    * Why are you even using tables...... *hiss*

    uh oh
    Header:
    * Site header text shouldn't need to be contained within the image....
    Eh - OK (This is harsher marking than daughters AS ICT ;lol

    Navagational menu:
    * Top navigational menu would be a lot nicer centred
    Do you mean the gaps on either side should be same width or the text isn't vertically centered

    Information Box:
    * Standardise the Icon pack you use and sizes
    Icon pack???

    * Text should be aligned so it starts in the same positions
    Agreed - on my todo list already

    Content Area:
    * E-Safety flash file is streached and therefore pixelated
    Ta - i just used editor to insert the file I thought it looked bad as well but I just thought it was a bad souece file- on inspection it is sized at 178x225 so I've manually adjusted width/height in source

    Footer:
    * Compression visible in the "Activemark 2008" logo
    * "Saint Mary's RC Parish Church" logo is stretched and therefore pixelated.
    * Text should be a darker colour
    Now your getting picky
    Page Source:
    * Why are you even using tables...... *hiss*

    Are you some sort of Win7/Iphone fanboy - tables just work without a degree in web design - your lucky I didn't ask you to rate my old Word/Frames based site

    I've forgot what the primary colours are, please can you remind me?

    The blue on yellow really hurts my eyes.

    Its for a PRIMARY School :lol;

    You must have your brightness turned up too much
    If you want less eye strain - try St Leonards CE Primary School

    (I tried to tell the head that bright blue doesn't work on a website but he said - that's our colour I developed this site 18 months ago and its taken this long to get him to sign off and launch!!! )


    Primary Colours: Red, Yellow and Blue
    You don't want to get into an argument over whats a primary colour with a Broadcast Engineer who's turned ICT tech - look at my Avatar
