Critique of Michael McCool’s New Web Site

 

Overall, the new site is significantly improved. Much more consistency in style, background colour and links. Navigation is easy, design is simple and clean. The addition of a clickable site map, reasonably consistent navigation bars along with time and date of last page modification are most welcome.

Below are a few small, specific criticisms.

Well laid out. Navigation top and bottom. Navigation bars slightly different size than banner.  Photo has been  cropped to centre subject.  Time and date of last modification is a good feature. Document is untitled, and so does not display properly at top of browser. Images do not have ALT text for visually impaired.

Title on page does not match navigation bars.  Navigation top and bottom. Navigation bars slightly different size than banner. Time and date of last modification is a good feature.

Extraneous mini navigation bar near bottom.  Document is untitled, and so does not display properly at top of browser. Images do not have ALT text for visually impaired.
