    I have recently redesigned my site, www.windows-hints.net, and I would love some comments and suggestions for it.

    Please stop by for a visit (and hopefully register and contribute ;)).

    Thanks

    Thanks Khayman.

    Unfortunately the lack of validation is due to the codign of others (Geeklog). If i had teh time or skill to code a site to do what I want it to from scratch I would. But I don;t so I chose a CMS that has teh features that I like.

    So get on Geeklogs ass. There is no excuse these days for a website that does not validate by the standards.

    Does sometimes :)
    I tend to ignore problems with the news articles themselves as my main concern for having them sorted is gone as I now have an RSS2.0 background.

    Indeed it does not, unless off course all the articles are properly formated.

    Looks like your using 1.3.10 or do you just use "professional" theme? I ask because 1.3.10 is suppose to use a HTML 4.01 compliant theme.

    I just sopke with the people over at geeklog and the 2.0 version is supposed to be fully html/css compliant and they are also plannign on the default theme to be Section 508 compliant.

    The main site looks fine to me, although I can't decide if its "Clear, nice and simple layout" or "a bit too plain" :)[/QUOTE]

    I would recommend a background colour to the main page. The white is a little too stark, and it makes it a little harder to focus on and read (at least for me).

    I've been meaning to upgrade my site to 1.3.10 but just havn't been in the mood to do the backing up before upgrading and then sorting my hacks. :tired:
