Re: trouble with clickable elements

The competition has closed so I can’t see that particular code now, but from an accessibility perspective the coding is pretty horrid throughout the website.

 

For example, pages are entirely empty if JavaScript is turned off or fails to load for any reason. Although almost everyone has JavaScript enabled, this is still disgusting from a software engineering perspective. Have these people not heard of progressive enhancement? Or even graceful degradation? There are massive swathes of JavaScript on a website that needs virtually none at all. Heaven knows what it’s all doing.

 

They haven’t even applied any semantic structure, and they have done stupid things like adding HTML attributes to change links into buttons. They should throw it away and start again.
