    Re: Edugeek Joomla Package for static sites?

    I thought about re-direction and may look into it as a viable solution but the problem then becomes working with a seperate ISP and while we are not part of the broadband sandwell network like the rest of the borough, when we move schools the plan is to be, which then raises another problem where the LEA will not allow us on their broadband connection when hosting our own services due to risk of being hacked.
    We would also like to host our own email service as well. How could we overcome this problem with using a different hosting service?
    Sorry i mixed up 2 different conversations when i wrote this bit. I meant to point toward the following:

    We currently get email using the broadband sandwell email service but only online so when the internet is down, no mail.

    We have email and webmail currently working internally but no access to it from the outside world.

    I have looked at the static page that SYSMAN has made for me and i have attached how it looks so far. The smoothmove alternative is flash-based and rotates through 1 pic so far.

    I am having difficulties though with adding content as i am struggling with adding the CSS to manage each section.

    e.g the text in the announcement box tends to fall out the box and is slightly off-center. I have tried to combat it by trying to set padding properties to the cell and even trying to link CSS to the td but it refuses to budge. I have also tried inline styles but again nothing.

    i might be missing a very simple process to manage tables and table data using CSS but i don't know enough about it to get the right command.

    I have looked into divs inside the table to but not yet classes. It just seems a clunky way to do things.


    As i said i am a noob when it comes to web-design stuff in general. Not my forte as it were.

    Thanks for help and suggestions.

    That is absolutely stunning. The time it has taken to convert that is unreal. I strive to be that capable myself. Maybe a few years down the line at the moment however.

    Many thanks, you are a legend!!

    Thanks for the comments HodgeHi but it wasn't to hard. As you will see it is just 7 html pages. The hard work will be adding the content

    Re: Edugeek Joomla Package for static sites?

    Ok,

    I have finally managed to get a website uploaded using the template that SYSMAN_MK has provided edugeek utilising the static HTML pages that he kindly made for me.

    I also need some feedback on the site wehn viewed from IE 6 + and 7.

    I only have access to safari and firefox 2 at home so could not test on the MS browsers.

    I think the site is coming along quite well considering our limitations

    http://www.cronehills.sandwell.sch.uk

    any other feedback is very welcome.

    Font-size was increased as per request by secretary.

    There are random images on home page using Javascript and also javascript showing and hiding the div sections on the news page.

    Thanks

    Re: Edugeek Joomla Package for static sites?

    the first image which caught my eye was the plan view of the school and the police station. That "association" worried me. The Pupil Work link brings up a 404, but I assume you're still waiting for content.
    The Announcement section looked a little askew -

    Re: Edugeek Joomla Package for static sites?

    Looks great HodgeHi! Love the pics you've used

    Browser = FF

    announcements font is a lillte big
    padding around the pics on the front page could do with increasing

    (IMHO)

    @ Beeswax,

    Yeah, the police station is nearly right next door currently, but still doesn't make it any quicker. I may remove that picture as i don't really like it much.

    What browser are you using to see that slight overlap on the announcements section?

    I do not see that at all in safari and i arrived at work this morning and checked on ie 6 and never saw it either.

    Do you get the javascript content warning?

    @mark,

    I will look at the padding as i thought the same. The text does get a little close. I think i did try to incease the padding but saw no change so left it as it was for the time being whilst content was created.

    The announcement font could be reduced and may also remove the issue being seen by beeswax.

    Thanks for the comments i will look into them as soon as i can.

    Re: Edugeek Joomla Package for static sites?

    Here's how I see them in FF 2.0.0.4 & IE7. As you cansee, the top one, IE7, doesn't render the page well at all. The bottom one, FF 2.0.0.4 has the problem with the panel on the top right.

    Re: Edugeek Joomla Package for static sites?

    I see its quite a mess when viewed in ie7. What the hell is that browser doing???

    The issue with the FF on may be resolved with a smaller font i will check it out.

    When i open the home page in dreamweaver cs3 it asks to convert some tags to be ie7 compliant. I will look into it to see what happens.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Re: Edugeek Joomla Package for static sites?

    Right i have since looked at the problem with the index page and internet explorer 7.

    I opened the page in Dreamweaver CS3 and it asked me to convert the tags to ie7 compatible ones so i said yes (i backed up the index page first though) and now when viewed the flash content no longer works. the link seems broken.

    I have also changed the font size in the announcements box.
