I’ve been on a roll with working on websites. It started with a big school project I wanted to do for my “Computers in the Classroom” class. Then I started tweaking my mom’s art website.
In the midst of it all, I started tweaking this website. This site is made up of many different modules, all of them with their own default style. It’s a bit of a challenge to get the menu to look and behave the same in the different modules. Plus, it had a tendency to break the Master Calendar module, as Ray found out a month ago.
My solution was to make a common navigation banner that I could use at the top of every page. It’s an Image Map, it’s centered, and it’ll look the same on every page. Now that I’ve got a concept that works, I can further tweak the layout of this site, and not worry about how the menu behaves.
My next step is to add the Google search back at the bottom of every page, as well as a logo/link to Pasadena Cyclery since they’re our very supportive sponsor. After that? Who knows, but redesigning the site in the future should be easier now.
If you have comments or suggestions, please let me know.
