    Feedback on our new site?

    We've took the (slightly unusual) step of combining our website content onto our new Moodle VLE platform as I couldn't see the point of having 2 separate web entities and I think we've prettied up our Moodle sufficiently to do the marketing side of things as well as the learning environment

    Also works quite well as a method of getting people used to the interface before going on their course!

    Redbridge Institute of Adult Education

    Any feedback from fresh eyes would be great... can you find where to go to get info on courses, where to get a map of our centre etc...

    i really like it - Moodle has a habit of looking old and tired but that themes really nice and fresh.

    Are the 'standard' pages just course with all the weeks turned of?

    Yup it's a 1-topic course with guest access on and the topic hidden (just using the intro section)

    Had to do a lot of theme tweaking, Photoshopping and icon browsing to get the fresher look... glad it's working so far

    Yup I know all about IE6, what a nightmare browser

    Had to rewrite the menu to display at all in IE6, the aardvark theme ours is based on doesn't work on 6 at all but I figured the slight flicker \ background bounce is acceptable on such an old browser, hence the browser detection message a bit further down hehe

    doesnt say, unfortunately the filter they use is naff, sometimes we get the red screen telling us why the site is blocked but 99% of the time we get a white page with no message, which is what im getting today.

    Haha quality, I bet it's the "Adult" in our title that's done it!

    Reminds me of when I was leaving my last job to come here years ago, told them I was going to an Adult Education college to which the reply was "do they do film courses"

    for the IE 6 issue my new theme uses this:

    Pushuptheweb.com

    Stops having the code for such a horrible browser and also helps make the web a safer place

    How I wish I'd knew about that before spending ages on if statements and css trickery to do my browser detection block!

    Just added the code in and it works nicely, should be enough of a hint to stop using IE6 for anyone still with it
