No its not 100% finished.
But the overall design is finished. I still need to create a few pages. For example the recent news pages arent done yet nor is the music downloads section.

But the design is finished. Do you like the design at all?

The main top image takes for ever to load and it also is does not line up correctly in Opera.

The overall look is decent. I think the navigation could be done better. I just didn't care too much for the buttons at the top.

Nice work.

RonJr are you on dial-up? Cuz the header is only 69KB in size which should take a split second to load on DSL or Cable. I think Opera reads the CSS different than IE and FF.

xfahmix, gommer683, thanks for the feedback.

Nrain other than the links what are your thoughts?

No. I have BB. My ISP has been having problems so that might be why. Works fine now.

I had problems with my site's CSS where it looked fine in IE and Opera but Not FF or NN. I dont know why they have to do things different. I hate that.

Nice site! Love the colours :)

- I like your top navbar but I find that the text is a bit small and hard to read.

- Great work on making your site cross browser compliant!

- Grey text on a grey background. Not so hot. If you're going to use a dark background, it's best you stick with bright colours for text so it really stands out. White looks good on grey.

- Activate the email link under News - Feb 3

- What formats are you going to provide for users to download the mixes? Whatever format it is, make sure you also provide a button link or just a link to the site that supplies the software to download in case they don't have that installed. Example: all your dj mixes are in mp3 format, supply a link to the winamp.com site or windows media player site or whatever.

- Don't center this text, it doesn't look right since the other text on the page isn't centered "Here are four music downloads for your listening pleasure. To get your mix listed below please contact:
digitalninja-official-dj.com"

- Your blog page content appears too low on the page.

- Your tutorials page looks aesthetically different than the other pages. Ditch the white background and keep your sites consistent. Also, the following text at the bottom of that page is barely visible "Powered by vBadvanced CMPS v2.0 RC2 All times are GMT. The time now is 01:02 PM."

- Don't forget to put alt tags on all your images.

Besides that, I think it's great keep it up!

hello, i really like the header of the homepage, nicely designed!
And i like the colors also!
On the frontpage, under the header, try to use some more bigger pictures,
right now looks like under the header is kinda empty!

That's a very nice site, nice layout, nice colors.

On a personal note, I would probably have added some kind of rollover on your menu, a simple swap image/restore, ore something like that.

good job..
