Did you modify this template? Something looks weird about it. On the top and bottom, there is a defined line that kind of gives the header and footer a little depth. But the main body, doesn't have the same effect. Or maybe it's just overshadowed, but the strong colors or it's my monitor. Also, what are those images in the footer? Are they backgrounds? When I scale the page down, they seem to overlap the sides of the main content body. It looks really weird. Also, the search box is in an odd place. I would put it closer to the top or just below the stuff on the left. And the image that sales "Tutorials...." it looks bad. Extremely fuzzy and that is not good when it comes to images. Just house shoes and feelings. Also what is the box above that image? YOu should put the search there.The design lacks imagery. The text is a little small also. Last but not least, you say the site will host video tutorials on websites and other webmaster applications, but the site doesn't really look like it was done by a "professional" that can offer advice to someone else. I hope that doesn't sound too mean, but you used a template, and not a very good one. And the site doesn't validate either. So it's kind of like taking your car to a mechanic and his car is leaking oil. Also, what will be so different about this site? In theory there are so many free tutors out there, that you could just link to some of the better ones. And save yourself some time. Again, not being mean, just playing devils advocate.

the template looks too much like many default joomla templates,
you need to modify the template more to make it more unique specific to your site

- to start, you need a site logo professionally designed
- the current color scheme is okay (red & grey)
- remove the joomla links, and the default joomla favicon
- remove login form, syndicate until you have content and traffic
- upload content, change the links on the navigation menu (left)
- the bottom footer need to minimize the height

but yes, overall, need to modify the template more to fit your needs
dont want to make it look like any cookie cutter joomla site out there,
theres just too many and they all look the same

Hi,

I agree with the above.

Specifically what stands out as problems for me are are:

The logo looks pixelated and unprofessional.

The red/black color scheme is not easy on the eyes.

The main link boxes are too tall.

it looks like almost every other website
and not the good ones either
it looks like one of the sites that
you get download illegal pc games on
it just looks too shady
try building your own template
and use some better and brighter colors
