One of the biggest challenges facing web design in recent years has been the different support for web standards, accorded by different browsers. Internet Explorer 6 while being by far the most prevalent browser out there for the last couple of years, still has a number of non standard tricks up its sleeve that can completely destroy a modern web site layout. Its predecessors ie 5.5/ 5.0 were worse still!. In recent time, Fire fox has appeared with much better standards support and ie7 has now followed with better rendering of pages.
We always try to take care to ensure that and sites we develop render as intended across the commonest browsers.
We have designed or updated numerous websites for clients. Wherever possible we use standards based, unique designs though we can also modify off the shelf templates, applications and base designs.
Below you can see just a few examples of our work.
Appleby Frodingham Sports Club in Scunthorpe ranks itself as one of the finest small squash clubs in the Humberside/Lincolnshire area, with teams and players competing at local and national level.
As a small club with a small budget they wanted to offer their members modern booking facilities that were easily managed and of course, primarily, affordable. Halleynet Web Media, designed, specced and configured the entire system and it went live on 1st October 2007 with no major issues. Members can now book their court facilities online whenever it suits them from anywhere in the world. AFSQUASH.COM's main club site is built and self managed by the club using the Halleynet Hosting platform, with technical support from Halleynet Web Media. We have also managed to achieve sponsorship for the club site such that it is cash generative (excluding the cost of the booking system).
If you are a small club with similar needs contact us now for a quotation. You may be pleasantly surprised!
The boasc.com site is a well used site for a leading Central Scotland Tennis and Squash Club. The site comprises of a Content Management System which was built to allow the club officials to quickly and easily add new pages to the site with no website knowledge.
The site was built using CSS, HTML and php/mysql. The site has online polls, page specific content feeds, xml rss feeds, and other features.
We have recently developed an online booking system to allow court time to be booked over the internet. We could supply this system at very competitive rates to other clubs on request.
The site also benefits the client by having a good page rank in Google and thus attracts sponsorship and revenue which actually makes the website cash generative.
The Links-Club has been a long time client of Halleynet Web Media. Recently the site has been subject of a total make over to bring the look and feel up to date, with bolder graphics and improved navigation.
The Links-Club wanted to be able to manage the day to day content of the site themsleves but did not want to use a content management system preferring to opt for a Macromedia Contribute compatible site.
We have built such a site using custom templates to contol what is and isn't editable and adding custom scripting to give the functional benefit of a database driven site without the technical knowledge to manage it. The site uses php and css with a mysql database working invisibly in the background.
Again this site gets a good page rank in Google generating income for the client by its presence alone.
Rhuallan Raptors is a small business catering for visitors and tourists interested in birds of prey.
They run half and full days out, as well as the somewhat unique offering of falconry days on horseback. In addition they manage and sell "easy care" sheep.
Rhuallan Raptors asked us to come up with a simple website to show their offerings, and this is it (click image).
An advanced css based design that incorporates their logo and also uses a Gallery 2 based image gallery that the client can update themselves. The design renders best in the latest browsers namely, Firefox2, Internet Explorer 7 and Opera 9 but for users who don't have these the site adapts the css to a slightly modified look that retains the vast majority of the features. In particular the bird image that forms the core of the layout, does not render properly in older non css2 compliant browsers, so it becomes a non transparent background in these older browsers.
This successful provider of industrial switchgear and power control equipment wanted a complete make over for their old and outdated website.
We built a fresh site with a simple layout to the clients requirements which highlights Power & Control Solutions' range of services to industry.
We also provided updated email facilities and improvements in use of web and internet services for the client.
We used CSS, HTML and php to build this site.
The site will soon become the basis for a printed brochure and may be expanded to include technical reviews, and information. We look forward to being of service to PCS Ltd for sometime to come.
