New Web Site Design

Last night in bed I thought up a design for my web site,

The idea is to have a menu common to all parts of the site, but use frames to outsource the weblog to here, the photo albums to somewhere else (currently investigating using Hello and Picasa), and possibly have different designs for the different sections. Each section would then be a web site in it's own right when removed from the frames.

Home Page
I spent a while on the menu, which is based on my current site design, but the right hand side was an afterthought. I think it's OK as a welcome page but would need more work if I was to use it for much of the site.

The menu entry is selected and a "remove frames" button is added. When I finally update my web site I will stop using "weblog" (I do on my current site as I've not changed it yet) and use "blog" to match the rest of Warwick.

This is another web site I plan to create when I get round to it. (At this rate that's never!) It illustrates how I can create other web sites and incorporate them into my own site.

I thought about reducing the menu size for the framed sites by using images without labels, but I think this would be less user-friendly.

Comments welcome. - 15th
