    True, didn't think of that. I wonder why they did it like that anyway? It's actually more work to do it like that, surely?

    It depends what they're used to. Many of our kids have found that whatever they do in the html program(NVu) is not necessarily how it will come out in Internet Explorer. Therefore, by just creating an image, you are almost guaranteeing that it will look exactly how you want it to look without the need for Div boxes and the like.

    Sounds like an excellent opportunity to educate them about the state of HTML standards, the browser wars and the quality of Microsoft software.

    Only just read this thread, but I must contribute this site of my former employer.

    http://www.brcccollege.com/

    Not done by students, but by the Head of ICT. Classy.

    I actually really like the flash scrolling gallery on the front page . What would you say was wrong with the site?

    It's just... a bit... amateurish.

    There are some individual components to the site that may be nice on their own, as the only flashy part of a well conceived page.

    I want my school to have a professional looking site representing the school to the online world. Isn't that the point? Image?

    Perhaps it's just me.

    Also, I'm all for students creating a website, but I’d put it beyond the front page and label it clearly as student's work.

    I also like the sliding gallery - but it's quite imposing. The sites quite intense overall - black is not the most relaxing background colour.

    Re: Want to laugh at my school internet site?

    The BRC College site killed Flash player when I closed the tab and then took out FireFox.
    When I first arrived at the site it was totally blank, apart from 4 flash logos that Flashblock had thankfully trapped. As may have guessed I'm not a fan of Flash.

    I agree it is far too scrolly and intense. And yes, black is just about the worst background colour in my opinion.

    It's convenient that your school name is "School name goes here" - less work to do on that template!

    If you don't have FTP how did you upload in the first place?

    Anyway take alook at http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomlaxplorer/ ftp from within the joomla backend. Might even add this to the package at some point.

    preparing for a new arrival in a few weeks..
    No matter what you do you'll never have prepared enough Good luck fella, its all worth it.

    For days I have been wondering what that ticker was for. I'm clearly a little bit slow.

    Congratulations.
