Re-Doing Our School's Page- Want Input

I am now in charge to re-do our schools web site, so I want to know what you like/don't like about it, what you would do to make it better, and also any comments. Remember, this is the old design, all input will be put into the new one...

I really like the header...but the body part is a bit random. I would suggest leaving the header/menu as it is and working with the rest of the page.

First let me say it looks great! You asked for input though, so here's my input: It renders ever so slightly funny in mozilla. As far as changing the layout, i would try to find a more effective use of the "GO TIGERS!!" space. Perhaps school news or something.

Like always, I have a bunch of opinions.

First of all, not about the website, I have never had a problem with tables. In fact, it helps to keep things very organized, at least the way I do it. The method you use to code the site is unique to the web designer. Asking for input from users generally refers to how the page runs in a web browser. If they want to use tables and get it to work, that is their choice. If the page doesn't load right, that's a different story.

I think the navigation is pretty good. I easily made my way around the site and found the information I was looking for. (I wasn't looking for anything, but, you know.) A great job was done on the navigation bar, it is interactive yet simple. However, there are a few things that could be done about the home page. First of all, I like to see somewhat of a border around the page. The navigation bar and above doesn't in that case, but the rest of the page contents should have a couple of pixels at least of space seperating it from the side of the page. I like how the page uses basic colors, but has an image that is bright and attractive. I don't like how that image is slightly cut off at the bottom. I would leave the image, but make it smaller to almost fill the same amount of space, but leave some room under it so that you can see the whole thing without scrolling down. The site could use a little more interactive features. Try changing the hyperlink hover color. Leave the navigation bar. If the rest of the page was a bit more interactive, it would seem even more useful and helpful. It looks like something that someone put some work into, not a little kid's webpage or a "computer generated" FLASH website. I don't know if you did use flash, but it doesn't matter.

If you redesign the website, use some ASP or PHP. This will allow you to do more.

Good luck!

Thanks guys for the input. I didn't create the site as it is now, but I'm going to be re-doing it as part of my Advance Computer Info Systems class. My teacher wants LOADS of new stuff, like a new layout, so if I show her some of these comments, maybe she'll lower her expectation a little.

My main idea for the page would be to consolidate the links and reduce the pages so, like for an example, the student resources page would also be the media center page, etc (and would be called Student & Media Center).

I plan on chaining the main logo and the navigational bar, but not much at all. I'm working on doing some stuff in aqua and brushed metal, but it will still look simple and get the information across. I also plan on making the main page smaller so you can get all your information and links without having to scroll down.
