|Zenith Bank's New Website by kisha009: 11:44am On Sep 03, 2008|
Zenith Bank Launches new website. I think the website is really NICE! There are wonderful graphics on the page, check it out

Its good to see Nigerian banks putting in more efforts
at turning out good web content. I have seen the new Zenith Bank website,
I must say this, ASTOUNDING! I didn't know there were such talented
web designers in this country, You people should check it out,
www.zenithbank.com + I like the use of flash,
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by smartsoft(m): 1:28pm On Sep 03, 2008|
well the thing is if you pay good money, you get good fusions to your website, but other way round then i'm sorry
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by yawatide(f): 3:09pm On Sep 03, 2008|
Well, far be it for me to put the proverbial sand in the garri but I don't see the big deal here.
Disclaimer: I never visited the old site and so I have no basis of comparison, design-wise
From a layout point of view, I think they could have taken more advantage of screen real estate. I mean, majority of online users browse with a 1024x768 resolution. They could have also centered the content area so that the right side wasn't "hanging".
A few other observations:
1) No form on http://www.zenithbank.com/contactus.cfm#email - besides, they could have grouped the branches together so as to prevent scrolling.
2) I filled out the form here: http://www.zenithbank.com/feedback.cfm, entered characters for phone number but the form submitted anyways. Not even back end validation
3) Each page has a big red rectangle as part of the header. To me, that's not necessary. They could save some real estate by at the very least, making it smaller.
4) I tried "eHellp". The window came up and I entered information, ready for a live chat. The window closed down on me instead
5) On FAQs page, it would have made sense to, once you click on one question, expanding its options, the other options close. Again, this would save real estate space: http://www.zenithbank.com/faqs.cfm
I will stop on these 5 make person no say I get bad belle cos, the developers probably put in a ton of time into this and most likely got paid beau coup money.
LESSON OF THE DAY:
Testing at ALL levels (unit, system and integration) is key to the success of any site. Having flashy things move around the site and dressing a site with a new skin isn't the only thing that defines a "better" site.
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by olush0la(m): 5:32pm On Sep 03, 2008|
Nice one, written like a well versed webmaster.
I checked out all you pointed out sha, but I feel dey would have had to use more
Zenithbank aside, I visited your site:
Lovely concept, but I think you need to do more adverts as the forum is kinda
sparse, get more people involved, so dat dey can run tutorials and all dat,
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by yawatide(f): 6:22pm On Sep 03, 2008|
2) webmasters of africa isn't my site. I am only a member. Perhaps you should contact the guys involved via "contact us"? Just wondering.
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by webguru(m): 7:52pm On Sep 03, 2008|
you are a good tester, you could set up a biz on that
i hear there are bizs like that overseas
id love to pay a tester if i get a major contract
jscript hard work simple copy and paste
wot are script libraries for; besides it wont do backend validation
its dangerous to nt validate, though i dont check for numbers/xters, bt i've never designed a bank site
On Zenith's site, like someone said; naija sites contain too much info and d zenith red doesn't look so nice
my browser screen is 640 * 800 at d cafe sha
mayb thats why d site looks stuffed
the learn more links on d animation doesn't seem to b working
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by yawatide(f): 8:17pm On Sep 03, 2008|
Yep, there are companies making major pepper overseas doing nothing but testing. Per validation, you should always validate, whether its numbers, xters or both. Take email address validation for instance, a simple regex test can take care of that. Worse case, as you have said, just google for what you need, copy, modify as necessary and paste. That's all.
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by olush0la(m): 11:10am On Sep 04, 2008|
I'm so happy reading all these.
This is about the first thread that I have read on nairaland that has people
contributing professionally without it getting into an argument.
purpose, don't get me wrong, but it could be a massive hindrance in many cases.
We are all talking as learned 'webmasters' right now, but what happens to the
average user? And what about cross browser and cross platform compatibilty issues?
AND the Learn More links on the flash actually work. See ehn, we are wrecking this poster's thread.
Do i trust that I'll see you guys there?
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by yawatide(f): 12:10pm On Sep 04, 2008|
It serves it's purpose, don't get me wrong, but it could be a massive hindrance in many cases.
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by olush0la(m): 1:11pm On Sep 10, 2008|
Yep, checked dem out as you said,
who are you? what do you do?
how can I find you and learn from you?
Cos you really know what you are talking about,
Do you like, have a website?
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by yawatide(f): 3:34pm On Sep 10, 2008|
who are you? what do you do?I am yawa-ti-de. By posting in this section of NL, I think you can call me a web developer
how can I find you and learn from you?Via my contact on NL
Do you like, have a website?Yes, I like have one. Contact me for it.

|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by yawatide(f): 8:32pm On Sep 10, 2008|
@kisha. The professor has spoken!
For moi, all big grammar my dear YAWA, all the degradation, enhancement tidbits.If it's big grammar, get a dictionary. Where I stay (and hopefully it will be the same where you stay), if you don't use/know certain "big grammar", you won't be employed. It's such words that show you are keeping up with the latest technologies.
I think people can do without some of the razzmatazz jscript offers and just provide the information people are looking for.razzmatazz? he he. providing ppl with information and providing ppl with a richer user experience are 2 different things.
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by olush0la(m): 3:40pm On Sep 16, 2008|
Hmmn, I see the thread has grown. And it's still professionals talking.
Yawa-ti-de, please post a link to your website.
Meanwhile, guys, I didn't really pay attention to Nigerian Banks'
web design and functionalities, So, i went round and got some links,
Here, what do you guys think?
BUT if used wrong, like in the case of gtbank and diamond bank websites,
It could kill the so called USER EXPERIENCE and we won't even have to consider graceful degradation.
PS. Invite more web designers and developers to join this thread.
I think we'll get to learn, really.
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by yawatide(f): 5:08pm On Sep 16, 2008|
Of all you just posted, I say access bank's layout is the worst - sorry but the way the pages are opening/closing the way the site looks like one big square makes it look like a 419 site. Thatz my opinion anyways. If you want me to comment on functionality, thatz another bag of beans and just like anything extra, it costs money
For the best, it may sound surprising to some given what I have written above but I prefer Zenith's. the only thing I have against them layout-wise is the red color. I think it would have looked better if they toned it down.
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by bug24(m): 6:16pm On Sep 16, 2008|
I quiet agree with you, the red is just too shouty.
can't really stare for long. opps!!! Where did i keep my specta !!! My eyes!!! my eyes!!!
For tampering with my eyes, am gonna post the link to Zenith's flash here:
u guyz have a download manager, just post the link there to download the flash and enjoy at leisure.
what security measure shuld the developer have adopted to protect the flash content from being dowloaded?
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by yawatide(f): 7:00pm On Sep 16, 2008|
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by bug24(m): 7:05pm On Sep 16, 2008|
Alright, how abt the other developers in the house?
I try this each time i see a lovely flash content on websites , why is, i try to see if the developer has adopted a secured way of making it undownloadable by the public, but pabo ni gbogbo e jasi.
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by webguru(m): 9:13pm On Sep 16, 2008|
why should a developer stop u from downloading flash since u can't edit it?
besides it will increase the band
i've never used a jscript library though i have jscript collections
Web 2.0. involves jscript
Seems banks do not allow developers to post links on their sites
I think access flopped cos it was trying to be creative, i love d creativity though
i love the others.
i prefer bank phb, zenith's red puts me off
Its a lot of work they all put in, nice.
im happy most use php
|Re: Zenith Bank's New Website by olush0la(m): 11:32am On Sep 17, 2008|
There is a process of layering the flash movie (.swf)
in several flash containers. So that when RIPPERS*
steal or import your flash content and try to decompile it
all they get is the flash container.
But since the flash container will probably have a link to the
main flash movie, ha! (sighs*)
As per the banks, dem dey try (make we no lie).
I just hope they come to Nairaland and contract some of
us to do their web jobs.
Amen (big big money ooooo)
