Hi
I'm new to web design. And after several critics and comment from some guys, I decided to change my layout and search engine sys.

Me, myself can't make any judgement for my own work. So I need you guys to help me point out any mistake or improper ads allocating if you find out some.


Thanks

To me this seems bad, but some people may not think so. When you rollover the links and the background changes you cant easily read what link you have lit up....thats one problem with me but some people may like it that way. I know this is really pathetic, but you should capitalize your tags because it looks unprofessional i mean which do you think looks better <BODY>Blahahahahha</BODY> or <body>blahahahah</body>. I know its hard to do, because thats what im doing in my class right now and i keep getting marked off cause its not professional, but if i was making a site for the public i would caps the tags...im so evil :twisted: On your Online Casino page you have a blank white image spot under the advertisers column. Im not really trying to pick at everything but is there a need for two search bars? If nothing else having one at the top of the page is better because if they get at the bottom of the page and want to search for something they have to go back up through everything and they might spot something they like (guess that explanation was more for a shop site but o well :) ). I'm not much for the separation between your page....meaning you have your search bar then a white space then your banner then a white space then your body a white space then your search bar again...............But there is good news......your layout looks ok to me for the long run.....like i said it was just little stuff. Now have fun because thats what you are suppose to do :)

Okay... First thing I notice. Nothing to relax my eyes. There are no pictures. Which would make me leave. Nothing causes any of your text to specifically catch my eye.

The first page needs to hold the attention of the viewer. It's simple answer but that's what happens since I couldn't become interrested.

hi
Thanks for your comment. Can you explain more specifically for the meaning of "catching eye" Different people have different point of view. Maybe you find good web design would interest you, but I find it more attractive if a web site have a good content. :) . I usually see the content of a web site first instead of the design.

Anyway, thanks alot for reviewing my web layout. If you won't mind, please explain it more clearly of the meaning cathcing eye. What I mean is what type of design that really eye catcher.


Smile :D

True different people do have different points of view. But think about it this way. When you look at someone for the first time, at a party, a bar, or any social event, do you notice what they are saying first or do you notice their over all image and ensemble of what they are wearing? I would be willing to guess 85-95% of the world notices the persons over all appearance before they actually hear what is being said by that person.

How does this relate to websites?...

Your content is your voice. There must be something, images, changes in typography, color variations, anything to accent and direct people into actually wanting to learn more and read what you have to say.

Thinking about yourself and what you like and wanting to express that is great but are you trying to capture only people who are exactly like you or are you trying to grab many types of people who can identify with you?

Good site structure. My problem lies with the Navigation menu. First of, if you insist on using that particular mouseover, at least make the link text black so we can see it still. But secondly, what exactly are you using for your nav menu. It's not CSS, it's not Javascript, and it's not flash. I'm curious what is driving the mouseover animations. It wouldn't really matter except, I (and many otheres) have a tendency to right click a link in order to open it in a new window (or tab), but your nav links activate on both right and left clicks. This is a little annoying as I have to click back whenever this happens. Whatever you are using for the nav, what's the benefit over a traditional javascript or CSS rollover? Also, their is no cursor on the links, it just remains an arrow. This may just be in Firefox though, I didn't check it IE. But besides that, I really have no other complaints. I'm sure it will get even better once you add more content. Well done.

Thanks to all of you for reviewing my site :)
I'm sure my site will get better with people like you helping me. Thanks !

The mouseover is made from forntpage. It is not javascript or css. Maybe that,t the reason I can't control the clickings. Whether you click right or left, it will directly go to the page.



Happy day :P

My main reason for not using too much animations and flash is because i'm not trying to promote any casino site. My site only contain informations like address,location,payment methods,hotels and so on. Just like a directory, I don't persuade people to play on tis or that casino. :)

Is there any method that can change the layout with just formating or something like that ? coz, my site has more than 300 pages, if i had to change it one by one, it really a hard time for me :(
