First of all, Thanks for your advice!
The reason I was leaving the image on each page was for consistency(?). I thought that it was unappealing to have the menu bar link to the top of the page because when users were navigating in certain browsers they couldn’t tell if the content changed.
Do You think it will look okay without the image? I was also worried that it would look bland. I am planning to make that a slideshow on the first page as well.
This website is actually for a competition and I’m looking for ways to try to make it more interactive/visually appealing, and useful. I placed first at the Regional Competition and last year I received fifth at states, but that was with a different website (tsa.windberschools.org).
Let me know if you have any other advice! :)
