Slideshow

A photo slideshow is a great way to display multiple images without taking up a huge amount of space on your page or struggling with aligning a lot of images.  At AlbanyWeb, we can offer a flexible slideshow that can either show several images within a single page or article, display the contents of a dedicated photo album, or create an interactive banner which includes images, selectable text and hyperlinks.  Our slideshow solutions do not use Flash, so that your content will always be visible, regardless of which device your visitor is using.  As with everything else AlbanyWeb offers, our slideshows are mobile-friendly, and will resize gracefully to fit any screen.

We can add a slideshow to your existing AlbanyWeb website too, just ask.

Working effectively with images is a balancing act, if you want to empower your editor to add and change images but still keep a visual impact with your website.  We have been playing with images and colour effects to enhance some of our newer websites.

Rugby Family History sample parish listing

The Rugby Family History group is a voluntary genealogy organisation, whose members specialise in the family histories of the Rugby area.  Their existing website needed a fundamental software upgrade, and they felt it was no longer a job for a volunteer.  AlbanyWeb did a website conversion from Joomla and created extra functions to help them more easily operate as a society.

Within the limited budget, AlbanyWeb focused on customised page templates to help organise and display the results of research...

Do you have an empty calendar?

Easy category selection makes menus automatic on albanyweb websites

Too often we see websites that look great and well organised on the surface.  Somehow all the important information is not where you expect to find it.  We call it the 'empty calendar' syndrome.  This is where we see a lovely calendar or diary widgit or box or area, which has no events or activities.  Instead, they are in one big text list in a blog post or news article.

Because it is often easier to add a blog post, the blog area becomes the dumping ground for all the updateable information, and the rest of the website remains with the pristine (and often generic) wording it had on the launch date.  Which is now increasingly out of date.  What is wrong with this scenario?  It makes the visitor work very hard to find the important information from your website, and most visitors won't work very hard, and won't visit...
