I just wanted to get some feedback on it so far.
The main site has been changed but I am still working on other sections because they use different scripts, I want to get the basics of the main site finished first so I dont have to update each script again
As to the quality, I'm not sure if you mean at the very top left between the logo and the "NWS" - between those there are 2 small parts that shouldn't have been in the image slice, I have those corrected on my own local server and just have to upload those ASAP.
Is that what you meant?
The instant messenger box is something I have been trying to fix for a long time, its a problem with the script that I am trying to find a workaround, it also annoys me
The problem with the ad placement is I don't have anywhere else to put it.
When logged in and out something will always be beside the logo so it cant be put there, I thought putting it below the navbar would be the best place where it can be seen and not in the way - Right now its using adsense but it will be changed to the same size of banner for local businesses and community events so it is more targeted and related to the visitors on the site.
What type of simple background do you think would look better?
I wanted to use the white so it was vibrant but also simplistic to view and use, Im more than open to suggestions
