I like this site, particularly its blue-green layout, which works quite well here. I would use DHTML to show your category options instead of "PHP / Photoshop / Others". Also, check your navigation bar because all your links go to your homepage. Lastly, I would center the submit form to make it look professional. Looks like your site is off on the right foot, though!

Your site is very clean from color point of view and gives pleasent feeling
to stay in.
To my opinion for given category, design and content is too compatible.

Good luck

I love the way everything is clean and smooth (unlike good-tutorials) and easy to understand. This is why the Logo disappointed me. The leaf is just like every other logo and the overall logo is isn't sharp, smooth and clean like the rest of the site.

I think there needs to be a green or blue border 1pixel width from top to bottom, as when you scroll down and get away from the navigation its just random centred text. Thats another thing, the first page is too long.

One thing I HATE is mouse over adverts. Please loose them they annoy meso much. Also i would advise going away from Clicksor and going to Google because a Google adverts bar down the side that is not in boxes and orange would be alot nicer :roll: .

The coding is good lots and lots of it :!: however the html is very slightyl muddled. Again nice other coding.

Good. I like it. Now all you need is more tutorials!

P.S. As you only have 3 sections i would advise putting links to them on the page somewhere more obvious than just the top.

Not too shabby!
The only eye-sore is the grey bar between the header and content.

I see your articles open in new windows and are framed - If these become landing pages from search engines you wont get any ratings from the searcher. Do you run PowerHouse as well or did they submit that article?

My one complaint is that when reading about the tut, like the date added, desc ect, they are all different colors(descreet at least) but its kinda confusing. I dont know if it would look good, but i would try picking on color, bolding it, and using that as the little things htat say say "Description: this tutial does something...blah"

It looks good in general. A couple of suggestions:
1) A little bit too much color variation in your list of tutorials.
2) “Date Added” looks blue. Blue should be reserved for links.
3) You might want to make better use of the space above the search bar.

I like the choose of colours and size. Its easy to walk through, and not all other kind of stuff there really dont belong on a site like yours.

Seen to many tut-sites with alot of crap, and maby on 25/- of 100% were the stuff were tut...

Nice job, but replace the logo.... i saw you had someone to do it for you, and thats nice. because the leafe now, are "stupid" if you understand what i mean!..

Hope you will get a lot of submits on your site in the near future.

best regards

I would pay attention to how the site looks in Firefox. The index page looks fine in Internet Explorer, but in Firefox, the ad to the right obscures the copyright notice at the bottom.

Great looking site, but a suggestion is to add a forum for others to share and get help from each other.

Great Tutorial Site, I'm using a tutorial right now, i think you can improve the navigation bar and make a better mouse-over effect. Other than that its great. I like the colour scheme it kinda suits tutorial sites idk why :P

The green and blue colors clash a little too much for my liking. The gradients also seem to take away from the actual design. I'm not talking about the entire site when saying thing, just the banner (top) area.

I suggest using colors that don't clash as much and perhaps using a third color instead of just two.

I DO like the simplistic style and easy navigation. That's something some sites forget: simple doesn't mean bad.
