Guys take a look and tell me what you think please.
First off do you have the time to write your own site management system? I know I don't. And as far as you being a fan of the ones you listed that is your own personal opinion but my site is none of those.Originally posted by madmatt
okay, I'll be mean, I'm good at it.
you should write your own site management system; that way the code you have is the code you use, and there is nothing extra. I've never been a fan of blog, phpnuke, or other various site management systems. there is just a lot of crap included that you don't need, nor use, so what's the point?
Majority of all portal sites appear cluttered because they consist of a lot of content, I have never known content for a site to be a downfall useless it is just worthless, which I don't see this being my case.Originally posted by madmatt
layout: flows nicely, however, it is too cluttered.
Thanks.Originally posted by madmatt
colors: over all, good choice.
This is another one of your personal opinions, but I believe it gives the site some contrast and matches the logos at that.Originally posted by madmatt
input buttons: dislike, the green does not fit.
I am going to be the mean one on this, before you make accusations of someones code it might help to view the source first. I am already using relative positioning with percentages except for a few places at the top of the page where i am setting the page width so that is fits adequate on an 800x600 resolution monitor. By the way I am running my resolution at 1600x1200 and it looks damn good!Originally posted by madmatt
left side table: too wide, items that consume these blocks don't need as much room. change the from pixels to percent and make it consume about 7 to 8%. It is better to use percents because then no matter what the end-user's resolution is, the site looks the same and flows better. When you use pixels, users on larger resolutions see a layout that isn't quite as appealing.
Another personal opinion, I don't think I have to beat a dead horse with this one.Originally posted by madmatt
finally, lindows is a load of crap. windows > *
Thanks for your comments over all, I am happy to hear some negative input here and there since I haven't been getting much, I guess it is bound to happen and that is when I will just head back to the drawing board and improve.Originally posted by madmatt
over all, good start. after a little work I am sure it will be ten times better.
