I have been testing the site and have found it to be quite user friendly. However,there are some improvements which would enhance the usability factor.
1) I would like to add a ticker,similar to the BBC news site,with scrolling and click through functions,edited from the admin section. This would go across the home page below the captions of the people and the magnifier,enabling me to write site news.(there is a space going horizontally across the page)
2) In addition ,I would like a geolocator,so that bidders know the location of the project when bidding.
3)I have also unearthed some $ signs,GMT and spelling errors ,few in number,whilst trying new functions
