    Our new website finally up!

    Our web developer (After pulling out huge clumps of hair!) finally just gave up and uploaded the website without waiting for staff to 'finish' their content (He's only been waiting 2 years after all...)

    Would be great for us to get some feedback from you guys or if your interested in having a look here it is:

    Cheers

    Very impressive, I like the look and feel of the website! Congrats to your web developer!
    Personally I like it. :-). Some clever little features you have in there! For example looks like the use of sprites in some web pages (correct me if I'm wrong).

    Nice layout & design, and good use of Wordpress. One issue though - when browsing using Opera, the drop-down menus disappear quickly - particularly on the home page. OK in Chrome/IE7. Demonstration video.

    Also On Parents > Canteen, I tried to download the menu, but it redirects me to an internal address of 10.121.83.80:50000.

  4. Thanks to webman from:

    Very impressive - nice clean and clear uncluttered look. Two years sounds a pretty good time span considering the slow time imput from some staff - I have been waiting a year or so on one of mine for any input at all to date!!

    Thanks webman - Passed on the video link and he's busy at work sorting it (Well after a coffee!)

    And thanks everyone else for the feedback!

    I manage to view a couple of pages then got an error message:-

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /media/data/external/wp-content/plugins/wp-pagenavi/wp-pagenavi.php on line 190
    Came up exactly the same on a number pages - including ones I had already viewed once.

    But what I did see was much nicer than its predecessor!

    Nice site - great choice of using WordPress (we used that at my old school for which I designed the site for).
    Content looks good as well (like the useful links on the homepage as well).
