Air NZ goes live!
Although we weren’t responsible for the design (this was done by a design house in Auckland), we have given the site a bit more of a modern design code wise. The site is now using modern CSS techniques, including drop down menus – these were based on Suckerfish, but I had to modify it to work as we wanted.
Some of the biggest issues with this site came from the footer design. The design called for a gradient hover of a specific height on the centered footer links; this proved to be impossible with UL’s and CSS. In the end a table had to be employed to achieve the effect.
There are still a few layout tables on the site – this is partly to do with keeping the code-changes to the site templates down and also to keep browser compatability (AirNZ has a wide browser list).
All in all a good job by the team. Kudos.
