- Decrease the width of the navigation column & tabs to the minimum width for the google ads to appear without wrapping. Cell padding needs to be maintained.
- Navigation Highlight: as the mouse moves from nav to sub navs: the highlighted tabs should remain lit, showing navigation route (where the arrow appears). As on www.ft.com. At the moment the positioning sub tabs cover the arrows.
- create a new header based on current header Flash_header/8.swf.
- we want the text "hoian.co.uk" to appear (in white) as the sky fades in. The text then scrolls up-screen at the same pace as image.
- the objective is to have more branding presence for our site in the header animation.
- Finally we want 3 static images fading in from white, created from the edited flash header above:
1: same background & text as at start point.
2: same background & text as at finish point.
3: same background as at start point with large white text "www.hoian.co.uk" aligned in the center of image.
Overall objective of this project is to speed up the load time of the flash header as its slowing down the load time of the nav bar and the main body content does not load until the flash and java of the navigation have loaded, the order that the page loads needs to change so that the nav bar and main content take priority.
If possible we'd also like a script for our site that reads if a visitor has seen a flash animation once upon entering the site, then dictates to the browser to only show static headers on the subsequent pages visited.
