var sidebar_width = parseInt('330px');
please rate my site
can you please tell me what you think of this design:
i'm not finished with the links and all, just still in the designing phase.
Tips & Pointers
Couple of pointers:
* Try a different BG Colour (you may want to try something bright) This will lighten up things
* The header needs some work(The text on it is bit hard to make out)
* Don't use too many colours. Stick with a particular scheme...a good combination.
* Format the text in your left side columns(center or justified)
* You may want to remove the redundant links from your left menu the ones which are related wiz. about us, contact us, meet the owner etc
* Organize the menu items. Right now its testimonials, about us, submit your quote, contact us...same type of links in one place.
Hope this helps.
everything is good,
just change the bg
justchange the side menu ( i mean shorten it )
ok, i can work on that.
could you help me out a bit?
not sure what bg color i should use
the header? do you mean the logo?
i've taken some colors out, what do you think now about the color scheme?
i've shorten my menu too, it does look better.
i still have to work on centering or justifying my left hand menu.
now, i'm a little confused about which one to use: css bordering or bg color black and cellspacing 1 and cellpadding 3 to put that black 1 pixel line around my tables and such...
i've got a headache, gotta get away for a little bit.
thank you for your help and direction
(not feeling too fine right now)
Great website, but try to keep your navigation from going into your website - blocks the view
not sure what i should do to eliminate that except to...eliminate it!
but i like it so much, what should i do?
Over all the site looks fine!
The blue background works with the orange. You may want to try a different color for the buttons, buttons background to tie it all in.
And as Brian mentioned, the mouse-over buttons block the text.
The logo is a little hard to read. So you could work on that a bit.
Other than that, the layout is great. It's simple. Clean and easy to navigate. Just tighten it up a little and you'll be fine.
All the best,
hey, thanks all! i really appreciate all your input.
ok, i've taken out my drop down menu list - i was so proud of myself for doing that. i guess i'll do it somewhere else on another one of my sites.
and i've worked with the colors a little.
i'll have to work on the logo later.
if you can think of anything else - please let me know.
* Some Comments
A couple of comments...I don't want to be nagging but still you have 2 redundant links in the menu.
1. Submit your favourite quote
2. And the one under Daily Quote (They both point to the same page.
* Keep a single link. I would suggest keeping under the daily quote and reome it from the top menu.
* Domain registration can be under services(if that's one of your services of course
* When working on your new logo here are a few tips:
* The name should be Big and Clear - This brands you!
* The slogan should be "Your Home, Your Town Your email" (Notice the capital "Y")
Hope this helps
I don't feel like your nagging me at all, especially since I went to your website and was very impressed by your graphics and layout of your site. It looks great! So by all means, keep nagging me. I'm glad to get the help by you and everyone else.
ok, i kept a single link on the submit a quote page.
i took out services from my drop down, cuz it overlapped my text.
as far as the logo goes, i'm going to have to get my friend to help me out, and i will tell her to do what you said, i'm not anywhere near knowing how to do anything with graphics, it's like another language to me.
but i think i'm getting somewhere. thank you again.
Try This Header
Try this header - (Its FREE!)
for Your New Header (Can't post the url directly!)
If you like it and want to use it on the site just send me a testimony, I am updating it and adding new entries.
All the best
hey thanks, i love it!
that's really generous of you. only thing is the quote - that's something i'm going to be changing every day/week. it's not really part of my logo. although, the way you made it, makes it look that way and it looks nice! but really, i'll be changing that on a daily or weekly basis depending on traffic. oh and my name's not Josh Billings, he's the guy who said that quote - my name is Rachell Johnson.
but yes i like it.
Nice to know you liked it!
Do you want me to remove the quote?
Let me know
yes please. and could you take off the border too. thank you. so do you really think those colors would look good with my site? i'm so excited!
Rachell try this!(Type the above url again)
And yes this would look good on the site
Plus you'll have enogh space to put your daily/weekly quote.
All the best!
thank you very much
wow, so what do you think micky?
did you get my testimony?
thank you again. i think it looks awesome!
Thanks for your email
Yep the header should look good with your current colour scheme.
Post a reply when you make a change and I'll just review anything that needs to be tweaked(Thats if you want!)
Thanks again and all the very best!
You're a life saver
Ok for now, I'm done. I'm working on the left side navigation menu, cause I was told that firefox is not displaying it correctly. So here I go...my next agenda is to figure out how to fix that. But otherwise, take a look and let me know what you think.
By the way...do you think rounded corners would look good on my site? 2 left and right - top - whites and 2 left and right - bottom #fb0?
Thank you very much for your help. Good luck to your site!
Sounds good to me!
Try it out(if not you can always remove it!)
All the best
thank you for all your help.
all the best to you too.
