My website had a large amount of errors concerning Meta Tags and iFrames . These issues were easily resolved. Firstly: Meta Tags – the issue with this was that I had forgotten to put quotations around them. Secondly: iFrames – the issue here was XHTML does not support full screen. I resolved this by deleting the ‘allowfullscreen’ tag.
These screen shots show us that this site can be viewed on: Firefox 2.0, IE7, IE 5.2 for Macintosh, Netscape 8.0, Opera 9.0 & Safari 2.0 as it says “No issues detected”
One change I made when creating my website was changing the house style, this is because I thought that using a sketchbook background would limit the audience of the website to a younger demographic. I thought that using a carbon black/grey colour scheme would make it suitable for a more male audience and would take the childishness away from the house style design. I was able to create everything I wanted to except an animated page using frames which would have made my website more compact and therefore easier to navigate . I think this was a time issue, as the fact that I wasn't aware of how to produce a website due to my lack of I.T skills. But I happy with the end result.
If I were to produce my website again I could improve it by using frames in my pages. This would have made it easier for my audience to see my work and navigate around the page. This would make it look more sophisticated, professional and would make space for more content for me to put on a page. In terms of design I was actually pleased with how it turned out, I feel that the colour scheme and fonts used appeal to my target demographic whilst also portraying my personality. To improve my website further I could of added more multimedia like an embedded playlist showing all my favourite songs, to add more variety to the content to make it more professional and appealing to my audience.
Overall I’ve had good comments in terms of, Housestyle, navigation, font size and consistency. I think I possible need to work on accessibility but other than that I can find no major faults. The feedback I get back from my peers will help me in terms of how I can improve my website. Here are some of the feedback forms I've got so far from my website.
This is my production schedule . Looking back at it, I find that there is quite a lot of stuff that I went over time on majorly. An unfortunate issue with saving and lack of it skills may be the reason. Somehow I was able to complete the individual tasks without any major complication and on time.
