- A '1' appears at the top of the page
- The whole site seems like it is too low down
- I don't like the look of the blue text on the grey gradiant
- You should probably add more padding to the text

I would add some padding as well.
Check your spelling - "...how to get you advertising here"
The design is too boxy for me.
Maybe add a gradient or soft patterned background...
There are too many font choices, try to keep to a max of three
The text under the logo is hard to read
The site looks like its got some potential as far as content, good start.

Erm... wha?
Quote:
- A '1' appears at the top of the page
Yes I know. It's my counter. I've been trying to fix it. If you refresh again, then it disappears. But if I don't let it say "1", it doesn't count you as a visitor.
Quote:
- I don't like the look of the blue text on the grey gradiant
Yes, that's what I thought too. Though it's very hard to find a colour that doesn't throw out the rest of the colour scheme, while at the same time being able to be read easily.
Quote:
The text under the logo is hard to read
What do you mean the text under the logo? Do you mean the slogan? Cause that looks fine to me.
Quote:

Uh, really? Cause I've only used 1. Verdana. Apart from the logo, everything uses the font "Verdana".
Quote:

I never actually thought of it that way till you said that. But, I must admit you're actually rather correct.
Quote:

No, it uses barely any CSS, because it's a bit much to code "the whole" website in CSS. Positioning things with it is hard. It's all made with HTML, JavaScript, PHP and a little bit of CSS. The rest is just tables.
Quote:

Quote:

I actually fixed it a while ago, but there's a glich in the system. So when I upload a new picture, it takes a day before the picture changes on the website. Anyone know how to fix this?
Quote:
- The whole site seems like it is too low down
It only is that low because the "1" is pushing it down for some odd reason.


Anyway, thanks for the comments everyone! Muchly appreciated. I'll get to work immediately.

Keep those comments coming :D
Thanks

IMHO:
1 - too many boxes...
2 - add some padding
3 - build a more professional header, this has too many effects and colors...
4 - why that 3 boxes on top are so big ?

IMHO...

Well, it's meant to be a boxy kind of look. Yes, I am currently working on the logo. The boxes are big because there is gonna be quite a fair bit of contents inside them in future and what do you mean "Add some Padding?"

I mean that some more space around the text could make it a bit more readable...

Hi there

there is something very appealing about the site... its strange, i decided to have a look around for a lot longer than I did on some other reviews lol

some things you could work on

a) the tables which contain text should have a cell padding of 1 or 2, because some of the text is right flush up against the border.

b) there are lots of colours, maybe too many. Try and pick a colour scheme and stick with it.

c) I love the rollover effect on the navigation, don't know, just something which i sat here and thought "heh... thats cool" you just need to make the rollover button a different colour, the red doesn't fit in very well at all

d) where you have 'newest addition', 'affiliates'
that is a nice colour, and i would love to see it used more in your site, try applying it as the background around the main part of the site.

e) at the moment I see greys blues and blacks.... not the most interesting scheme. grey and orange usually go well, with white text.

f) one thing i do like is that it shows some kind of functionality, admin area, member login, its nice

all in all, i simple recommend a small rethink on the colour scheme, then check your layout, maybe navigation buttons a little bigger, not making the nav bar so wide, all little things.

anyway, gj, hope to see more

Thanks for the review. Yes, I've been thinking about doing Padding. I'm currently working on that. I've tried to stick to the same colour scheme. I wasn't too worried about it. Yea, I'll have a rethink about the nav bar, top bar and colours. Thanks guys!

Keep those reviews coming :)

Something+s wrong there..only works well in I.E
Like the colors...just that red rollover seems a bit out of place...

Hi,

Just looked through your site and noticed that some links dont work. They should be active or not there at all.

Well... they're there to show you what's going to be coming soon. I don't want to link people off to deal links or 404 Error Pages because it's very inconvenient.

Yes I've looked at my website in FF and screamed in frustration. :lol:
I don't know how to fix the compatibility problems.
I'm currently working on my sidebar. So the rollover colour may change.

Thanks for the reviews guys. Keep them coming! Cheers :thumbsup:

Where the login area is next to it the affiliates and things seem a little to big just like the Other,Web Items ETC. Also the part were it says content and its got the 3 bubble bars it makes it hard to read and i don't like the way it looks, and right above the bubbles for no reason theres like a tan bar which kind of mixs things off. Also all the page links on the Nav bar are broken. I like the top banner that looks pretty cool, got a cool idea on what your doing the whole sell designs for good prices.

You weren´t with I.E I can bet :D

Well,usually this kind of errors in FF or other browsers come when not all tables are sized (given the proper size),i noticed that those where thw images have proper sizes...so it must be another one ...and it takes only one to all the rest getting messed up...but the links are also strange...because they just don´t work in FF or Opera.

Seriously, check how horrible it looks in Firefox.

For example, our main webdesigner was a hardcore IE guy for some reason(i suspect unwillingness to follow standards), but I had to convince him that sites should work well on all major browsers.

For the heck of it, I loaded IE and your site actually looks pretty nice on IE. :)

Finally, your banner still has "advertisment" in it.

Well, I don't know if you will have any success with this. If you want to sell "Professional Designs for the Web" you should have a breath taking design to convince your clients that you really know what you are doing. Unfortunately, your design "is more like 1999" as someone said before.

HTML:
it's not valid
where are the meta tags (description, keywords)?
why do you use the font tag? try css

On Opera and FireFox it looks terrible.
