1 good hint: use dreamweaver to create your webpage!  Wink


It's not about AIRBUS. it's not about BOEING. It's all about the beauty of FLYING.

It's worth trying it! Front Page really isn't good to build webpages, that's for sure! Cheers! Philippe

What will make the website great?

A good website is not overloaded with design and features; it has a clear structure and is easy to navigate around. Moreover, make it downwards compatible, i.e., there should be a non-Flash start page. Keep loading times of basic features of the website, e.g., menu, to a minimum. Text loads faster than images. *duhh* Make sure the site doesn't change too much from browser to browser. Sometimes, simplicity is more.  Smile

Yes!

I cannot agree more with you Beowulf : The Art Of Simplicity ! Go straight to the topic !
And yes as Pipo said if you can afford it buy Dreamweaver it is worth your money ! For me it's the best webpage editor. I started doing webpages with the notepad if you know what I mean  Wink pure HTML.

Let us know the adress of you website when it's finished.

hi
i run a site called karzoo and this is by far not my first website ive designed and ran! ive made loads of 'mistakes' over time and found, like many have said, simplicity is by far the best method. people dont visit a site to see fancy icons and moving menus they want to see decent topics, quality images when there are some and above all a site dead easy to navigate otherwise they wont find anything! i have found, even with karzoo, it's good but not great things can always be added and taken away juding on how many hits you seem to be getting or any feedback you receive. since i launched karzoo back in march and the inital responce was slow, its only started to get popular through word of mouth recently and through some search engines ive loaded myself into. i work in a travel agent so my site is travel related i guess building a base at work has helped it grow too!

good luck with your site mate - cant wait to see it

In addition to the advice above, get a few people to proofread it. Bad spelling and punctuation can be off-putting, as can all upper-case or all lower-case. And don't use umpteen different fonts just for the sake of it.

Nice one, Phillippe. Maybe some captions for the photos, though I'm guessing you're already working on that. E.g. I'm curious about the blue biplane - an Otter or a Pioneer, perhaps? Though, from past experience of trying to identify unusual aircraft in Switzerland, I should probably guess some kind of Pilatus first.

I don't have any web building experience, just experience of using them but it looks clear and uncluttered, with thumbnail previews available before anyone using dial-up has to commit to downloading a full size image.

As a side note, did you ever stand at the fence at the western end of the runway at Geneva? I just jumped off the bus there on a whim once and spent the afternoon there. Got some great photos.

Yes captions will be following shortly! Actually that one is an antonov An-2! Reg. is HB-ABA.

Yes actually I was there on that day. Pictures like that one or that one were take from there. Cool spot by the way! Cheers!

D'oh! Now you mention it, Antonov makes sense! I'm not very good with planes that weren't common at the bigger western airports.

I thought they would - I'm just a smart@rse.

I'll keep checking from time to time. My brother ended up not going to Yverdon so I'll need to look at your photos anyway.
