What Do You Think Of My Website?

Recommended Posts

It's a helluva lot better than my first effort! That was www.sixday.freeserve.co.uk - The first ever SSDT website that went on to become www.ssdt.org. God, it was bloody awful. Granted it was 6 years ago and things have moved on a lot since then, but I remember exactly what it looked like and it was terrible! I regret not saving a copy just so I could look back and laugh.

HA. You can see it on the Iternet Archive:

I had no trouble finding it..

(I remember when the WWW didn't exist - it was all sendmail, FTP and Gopherspace - you young 'uns don't know you're born etc. etc.)  Anyway, my day job is developing web-based document management and workflow automation software for local government and while writing user interfaces the golden rule is always code to account for the lowest common denominator.

Me too - on a UNIX X-windows platform running XArchie and command-line FTP...brilliant.

Neonsurge - we're in the same industry and sector...company I work for does Doc Management and Workflow for LG....freaky!!!!

Steve, dodging all the technical guff for a moment, the golden rules of developing ANY software, be it web-based or otherwise, are 1) it works, and 2) its easy to use. You're site looks very nice, does exactly what it says on the tin, and keeps people interested. Not a bad effort at all!

Cheers

Chris Mo.

Sorry - fair point. There I was thinking that the topic had got a bit technical and deep, and I went and made it worse!!! Its true what they say about us IT bods - deep down we're all nerds really!!!

:D

Point I was trying to make to Steve was not to get bogged down in the technical (but very valid) comments that have been passed (ironic now I come to look at it!)...I liked the site and he can be very proud of his efforts.

Now, as I was saying, XArchie is...... ZZZZZzzzzZZZZZZZzzzzzzZZZZZZzzzz

Code the videos like below and they will work in any browser. By clicking the image, the user will be given the option to download to their computer or open and view automatically.

In IE, it will open up your player and run the video.

Substitue the URL's in this example as required.

<a href="http://212.219.116.40/~sbird/movies/aprillia.wmv"><img'>http://212.219.116.40/~sbird/movies/aprillia.wmv"><img width="360" height="288" border="0" src="http://212.219.116.40/~sbird/movies/aprillia.wmv" ></a>

Hope that helps.

If you want the vids to play in a page like you have it now, then thats possible but will need a bit more coding :D

Ian,

Thanks for the help on the code. I will be changing it eventually but for now I have to leave the site as it is. I had to print all the code off and submit it to the college for marking so can't change anything just yet.

What I hope to do is put it on a different server soon with my own web address then I can keep fiddling.

Steve.
