Self Initiated Project – Website after Feedback

After the feedback we had from the presentation, it was clear to me and from Sally and Kevin that my website wasn’t populating that right information that a website should have with its news articles and player profiles so thats exactly what I did.

You will see as you click in each different new articles down the side that i’ve added 2 more new articles and the news articles are real and fictional unlike lorem ipsum text i put in it for the presentation.

Also i have added profiles for 4 more players that you will see when you look at  squad.php.

Self Initiated Project – After Presentation Feedback

After i presented my final (but not finished) website to Sally and the rest of the group, i got two pieces of feedback off her and Kevin. One was maybe a welcome box and a couple of information boxes would suit this page and then second bit was populating the website with more news boxes and images, this is something i was going to do over the summer.

In my research i researched how the professionals do it, here are their home pages :

Hull City :


North Ferriby United:


In these two websites in particular they are no welcome boxes or information boxes in where goes where.

But I altered my design to put a welcome box in there to see what sally thinks:


As for populating my website with fictional data about my football team, this is an ongoing process.


Self Initiated Project – Social Media

I have thought a lot about social media because that and texting is the main source of the communication between the players and managers at this moment.

At the moment there is no links from my website to the social media sites but I have created a Facebook for our new team next season which you will see here:

Also I am think about creating a twitter account for the team and then intergrate that into some sort of widget or feed into the actual website like a social feed, also a forum could be useful here.
