    It is real rubbish. A very bad advert for the school. & I am glad to say, I had nothing to do with it.
    opened it in Firefox, adblock wants to remove half the site :P I hate sites that link to word documents! that's OK for intranet sites but.. not for external ones surely!

    After these, I'm starting to feel better about our website now!

    Re: Want to laugh at my school internet site?

    i guess in a way my site is ok(in the way its there, its used in school and has the vital links the teachers use), but to be honest i am not gonna post the link casue i am far too ashamed of it its ment to be the project of someone who isant here so i may take it over an sort it if i get time at some point but that will depend on how much time i get

    love the Edugeek Joomla Demo may well implement that if i can

    lol, I especially love the way you see the hourglass for a few seconds before the script loads to tell you no right click

    That page looks awful in Firefox as well, everything is in a small horizontal space in the middle of the page. So much for browser compatibility

    Re: Want to laugh at my school internet site?

    Oh man and I thought I was having a hard time with our website!!!
    Love the use of the marquee tag, high resolution thumbnails and the highly optimised code with even less title tag than anywhere else!

    The pinky-purple scroll bar is a touch of class too.

    Voted 'oh god my eyes'.

    Also regarding the other awful site posted here: Especially like the golden duck race link! It even links off to a myspace!

    That site is now part of the our "examples of what not to do in web design" collection.

    Re: Want to laugh at my school internet site?

    I liked this example. The entire page is an image map?!

    iLife may be good for many things, but people like this give Mac users a bad name.

    And then for added comedy value, the Duke of Edinburgh "mini site" has been done in Publisher.

    I suppose it stops Google indexing your pages!

    Re: Want to laugh at my school internet site?

    Thats more of just a technical issue... one that the average end user won't really notice. The images are a reasonably decent size, so there is unlikely to be any complaints about it. As long as it works for the end users (hopefully in all common browsers), thats all thats really important at the end of the day isn't it?

    One thing I did notice though is that the text is slighty distorted (not just the titles)... I'm guessing due to compression of the image or the image being slighty resized.

    _Bat:_ I think screenreaders will have a big problem parsing image files, a big no-no with "disability discrimination" being a very hot topic.
