ABC Canberra has a new website. It looks pretty good, but haven’t had much of a chance to have a play with it yet.
While everyone’s fired up about website design, could I ask for feedback and suggestions on the GCC website http://www.gcc.asn.au
We’re considering an overhaul, starting with a new template (it is built in open source Joomla). But e also want to ponder whether the overall content directions are making for a useful resource for the community, or if not, what we could add in, within our financial and volunteer slave labour constraints.
(Send ’em direct to president at gcc.asn.au if you prefer to take your thoughts off-line.)
Constructive suggestions cheerfully accepted. Volunteers even more cheerfully accepted!
So you liked it hey Stereo henry??
You detecting a pattern here as to what everyone else thinks?…
Maybe it was a Work Experience project?
colour scheme is terrible, layout is poorly thought over, and the coding is shonky too.
All the state websites now look like this. Scary. And where’s the link to the recipe index gone??
Dear GOD that is hideous!
I HATE having to hover over something before you know what it is. The animation moves too fast for you to read the text. I could go on all day…
The ABC has blinded me with their lack of style and colour considerations!
Why are they chosing varying colour shades of green (bad choice for a popular website by ignoring the green colourblind 9% of human males), and putting reds on a green backround (ignoring colourblindness again), and having a tag cloud in which apparently everything is highly popular…
Looks like a typical MySpace page…
I thought the layout may have just been wonky in Firefox, but it’s just as bad in IE6 :S
Did they let Mark Carmody design that for them?
Whooah, sensory overload…
I opened it and the first scrolling feature that came up was Stuffed Zuchini. Rather fitting I though given the colour scheme and usability…
agreed…. it’s not great.
it is a complete shambles. what a mess.
The Homer: How much did this monstrosity cost ??
Oh my god. It’s a fricken dogs breakfast.
Is Canberra's signature dish:
