Thread: review and help

    review and help

    i opened my new site, www.onlyinkenya.com

    obviously, i would like you to review it :-P

    but i have a question:
    in my css file ( www.onlyinkenya.com/styles/blog.css ), i have 3 link tags...

    one for normal, which is gray, no underline
    one for hover, which is white, underlined
    and one for visited, which is gray, no u/l.

    however, once you have visited a link, it will only stay gray, it will not go to white/ul again. is there a css tag i am missing?

    thanks for the reviews and help

    honestly there is nothing to comment on, you placed an image in an iFrame and put text over it.

    no, really?

    did you like the way the text is set up? is the background image dark enough as to prevent it from interfering with the text?

    for a professional web-developer, your comment reflects poorly on your skills.

    Yes, the background image is dark enough - the text isn't set up in any special way and I don't know, its not a full website that is the main reason I didn't comment on it.

    Well, that's what "visited" means. You've been there, so that's the color.

    There are 4 link related tags: a:link, a:visited, a:hover, and a:active.

    I usually keep the link, visited, and active set the same. Hover is the only "different" one to give the effect.

    Exactly what he said. Also about your website it has great shading. Now to add some content.

    invision: that is a full website. you were expecting maybe yahoo! ? all it is going to be (for now at least) is a tech blog.

    Even blogs have themes but, yours is too plain and looks to be thrown together without the proper planning process. An image inside of a frame with a black parent background... doesn't look to well in my eyes.

    northblue, what you have right now is a webpage, meaning it is only one page, a website on the other hand is a set of interconnected webpages.

    there are pages connected to it in the iframe, which would make it a website by that definition. and it's even linked to my first site (which badly needs an update).

    either way, review it.

    anyway, in my view if you want this tech blog site to actually take off, you need to make a professional look for it. Get a logo, lighten it up and add some for of navigation to it.

    yes, by 'definition' it is now a website, but you are only linking to past content, thus not making it a 'new page' which is connected to the site.

    black background with an iFrame, wow, that is soooo boring. Make a brand new website, dump this design, and make it look good.
