Information Architecture : Final Outcome


In this post i will be giving you a brief final thoughts and how i felt the website went. So lets start it off by looking at the index page:

Here is my index page and it shows the basic framework for this website not much to look at, at the front page but its more about the content that comes in the other pages. I would of had a picture slider instead of the Welcome to LFC History but once i got it onto Internet Explorer it decided not to work and their was not fix for it, so i didn’t really have much choice. Bottom three boxes contain of a welcome to the page, a News box that will be changed frequently and also a Top 5 which will change between players, managers etc.

So i did some experiments with the first one, because i really liked that one and it didn’t go well. I only wanted it to be simple but  i tried messing around with the divs and then finally give up with it in the end. So i decided that instead of implementing Jquery in my website, when tried before with the navigation it didn’t work in my preferred browser, I’d just do my own.

The timeline consists of the main events that have happened up till the present day, with the key dates highlighted in bold. Along the side is a red timeline with the dates aligned with the key information on the left. The information has the right amount of detail on each event, because having all of the information i might aswell right a book and the users are more interested in the key dates like Hillsborough 1989 which has more because its a key date in Liverpool’s History and no one can disagree that.

Now on the Photos page here is a bit of Jquery which is called Lightbox which i have tested before creating this website and i like it for viewing photos. Each thumbnail is a highlight of the specific year on the timeline and has the year as caption. I really wanted some Jquery in this website and here it is.

and to round off the website i have decided to implement a contact page so the user can give me some criticism back the only thing wrong with it dosent work because i haven’t got no PHP implemented within it because that is in semester 2 and i have only done little. So hopefully when i learn some more knowledge i can then make it work.

I am happy with this website and i think it does what it explains in the brief and i haven’t breached any copyright, that why i havent just copied the Liverpool crest because i didnt know the rules between using their logo and i researched other Liverpool  history pages and they dont use the logo and pictures. So i decided not to and i think it worked.
