Hello ive finally got my 1st 5 posts on here so now can post my link apparently my site has only been launched a few days so i am putting it on here for you lot if you wouldnt mind to have a look and tell me what you think.
Subtle colours, say it with me S-U-B-T-L-E C-O-L-O-U-R-S.
There is not much to comment on though, its just a badly coloured background and a default table with text links. After you change the colours (please change them ) get some graphics in there, maybe a logo and a header\footer.
I would like to see what comes of this, good luck!
ok ok everyone saying change colours but as i have asked change them to what? the txt links will indeed be changed to images that i always do with my sites , the table i know are basic but as i put i think in my originaly post the website has only been up a few days so it will take time hence i came on here askin for ideas on how to change.
So far and i value your oppinions im been told change colour but change them to what ?? what colour would make u feel at home and make you want to come back? help me plz ppl
umm.. i dont want to sound harsh..
but i would never come back to that site.
I would never buy anything there, as you dont have any detailed info on your products nor pictures.
You need to hire a designer.
Normally, i would give tips to make it look better, but that design is hopeless.
Originally posted by serialbeggar OK, lets take a step back for a moment. KJGPCS, what is the purpose of your website? Is it just a gateway page to your forum? You need a subject to build the site around, the color scheme will follow.
The Purpose of my website is the Online shop however it is as ilyash said very limited in information on the products etc.... the forum is sort of the 2nd most important section to it im trying to update more information to the shop eg. more detail etc... but what exactly can you write about a power cable etc??? granted some of the other cables and hardware can have so much more on them. As there isnt many products on there at the moment i dont see how lots of information can be there.
As for comments such as ilyash`s all though they are welcome as it is an oppinion as i asked for in the 1st place it dosent help much i need to know what to change & not just be told its useless.
As for hiring a designer i cant afford a designer at the moment as im only just setting out.
But in answer to your original question its primaraly the shop the site exsists for.
KJGPCS, the problem is that you just don't have enough content yet. As you say, your store only list 12 cables and 1 memory. The rest of your extensive menu is meaningless. Honestly, this just makes your site look even lamer.
I suggest that you get rid of everything. Make the site just about the cables. Get some photos of the cables - looped, close up of the jacks, different color sets. Arrange them in interesting ways. Photoshop a pretty girl holding them or tied up with them.
Find the cable manufacturer's web site. See what they say about their cables - #ms throughput, gold tips, security guards, heat resistant, electro-magnetically shielded, whatever. You can make them sound exciting. Look at Monster brand audio cables. After reading their packaging, why would you trust a generic cable?

The red color indeed makes my eyes and head hurt, literally. Your site is soo basic. It's not professionally or beautifully done. It will scare potential clients, it looks like it's really done in some basement somewhere by a newbie in web design.
thanks all for your help so far i am messing with different bits so you should see a change comming soon , what do you all think to the colour grey as a background?
The contents of the site listed in a table down the left handside with a image style button for each section , some content discribing my business and what i do on the right hand side , the paypal or advertising section at the bottom as it is & a nice maybe flashing banner with my company name at the top? improvement or not any of these things you dont think would look good please tell me which ones as thats the idea im thinking of trying next thanks.
