briannoyes.co.uk

The website I have written for Brian is now released into the big wild world, so can you have a look and tell me what doesn't work. Please bear in mind that this is the first time I have done a website and that i did it on a free piece of software which is a little bit moody. For instance when I looked at some pages on the pc at work there appear to be broken links to photos on the left side of some pages, however these aren't on the pages in Kompozer and don't appear on the mac so I'm not quite sure how to get rid of them.

Brian is a bit embarrassed by it really but it does the job, which is to give information about him, about the compositions etc to anyone who might be interested and is much easier and less obvious than a fat list of works etc on paper. That's the idea.

I actually really enjoyed doing it, though sometimes when Kompozer would do something one day and not do it the next it got annoying. You can get lots of free stuff now where you fit the information into a template and they probably look better than what I have done but I didn't know about them when I started, and this is finished pretty much now, but I might redo it sometime and make it prettier.

it is www.briannoyes.co.uk

Nicky is back home until she goes travelling in January, and is working at 2 stables, exercising race horses and looking after a show cob. However it is lovely to have her home for a while, and she was actually home for her birthday for the first time in 3 years!

love Helen

Well, that is quite a neat job. All the links work except there seems to be one or two markers in the left side for a picture maybe that just display as boxes with an "x" in. The only other minor point is some of the photos are slow to load - maybe they need more compression?

I fixed your link in the blog entry. You just need to hoghlight the text in edit mode and select the link icon (a small piece of chain, how twee) and then get the correct URL in it.

Again, really good job, odes what it says on the tin.

Ok, so before anyone else gets in here, "hoglight" is a special computing term known as "highlight" among mortals, and "odes what i says" clearly is a poetic form of praise......

Very very snazzy....

not to nit-pic, but it seems that he was shortlisted for 2007 - 20010...rather a long time....

all the links seemed to work but the contact page...how sharp!

They are shortlisted for 3 years, to give time to have opportunities to have performances and develop the career as composer. It doesn't happen at all quickly! Did you mean the contacts page did work, or didn't work? I wasn't sure.
