Looks nice,

 

My onlu comment is on the Spirit, Responcibility, Envolvement.

 

The text does not match anything else and looks off.

Looks amazing. The only thing that I would suggest is leaving the footer on the first site on the second. I think that it actually adds to the site. Alot of times people forget that the footer is part of the webpage too. They just throw something down there to make it conform to the webpage. I think the jaguar at the bottom conforms with the logo in the upper left corner.

Stunning as usual, but I've come to expect that from you. I have to agree about the footer... I like the origional better.

 

I'd also comment on the login portion... I think I like the button for logging in that takes you to a seperate page for the staff login instead of the open form. You're basically leaving yourself open for a hack attempt with those login boxes sitting there... some kid is going to get bored, trust me.

Thanks for the comments, I'm not sure yet about the jaguar at the bottom.

 

Ober, I'm not sure how the login is more open to hacking?

I'm just saying... someone is going to be more willing to start typing in those boxes for fun than if you put them on another page. Probably nothing big to worry about... but it is a school website, and if the kids at the school use it for anything educational, I'd be willing to bet some of them have at least tried it. Kids that age are very curious. ;)

I'm sure they have, as the IT specialist at the school I deal with many annoyances.

put the event calender on the left side. It is even sized for it! Why use a full size box in the middle of the page for it?

The calendar is only on the index page and I don't want it as part of the menu column.

It would be kickass if you used AJAX for displaying the calendar information ;-)

 

This comment could be stemming from the fact that I just built my first AJAX app and i'm kinda high on the possiblities now.

I agree that AJAX is the bomb and that is probably the best way to do it.

 

(if not, you could just use an iframe to keep the whole page from reloading when you switch from month to month. I'm by no means a fan of frames but this would be a good use for one)

I've never heard that term before. I could do it with DOM and CSS but would have to change things up, I guess I'm somewhat lazy.

 

Ajax pretty much just means doing most things cliet side if I'm correct? (ie making the data available faster)

Nope... it means making javascript calls using XMLHTTPRequest to a back-end PHP app (or whatever your backend application may be written in). It literally fetches new info from the server and brings it back to the page without reloading.

yes and no.

you still run all your server side scripts on the server side - but AJAX lets your client side javascript talk to your server side PHP without the user being aware of it.

 

so for instance, on your calendar, when the user clicks on a date - instead of reloading the page and having an inline php script show the events for that date, you could have have the users onClick trigger your ajax function to call the server side script to get all the information for that date, then your server side sends it back to the javascript function that populates the field with the correct information. All seemlessly and nearly instantaneously. (should keep it to less then 1/10 of a second)

oh yeah, this is the best looking site on the front page of website critique

 

id say hook yourself up with a favicon and you're gold. and look into the ajax thing, god is cool.

 

ajax - http://www.webpasties.com/xmlHttpRequest/

favicon - http://www.thesitewizard.com/archive/favicon.shtml

 

warn when a link, the one on the nav bar, is a pdf. the subbuttons with the black bg really throw off the great color flow that you've created. add some pictures!!! great looking site though, keep up the good work

Definitely looks pretty cool. I'll read more about AJAX and maybe convert the calendar.

This may seem a bit picky and is just because of personal preference. To the submit buttons you should add a "cursor:pointer" so it looks like a link. Believe it or not some people wouldn't know to click it otherwise :)

 

Looks good though.
