http://www.webmastersiteoftheday.com

This site is targeted towards new to intermediate webmasters, to help them find superior tools, scripts, and websites that can help them get their site off the ground.

It is fairly new so the content is still a little short but I'm adding an article a day.

Nice idea, but try instead of having just the articles also a directory of some sort, so users can easily navigate and browse all the websites you have featured!

not a bad design not a fan of the colors but that’s just my preference but I would defiantly redesign the top menu.

I'm actually thinking of taking it off completely, it seems pretty useless.

It's hard to give a bad review of Joomla. It's a great CMS. Your featured websites need some work. I knew all but two and use them regularly. Hopefully you'll find more. I'm curious why OZZU wasn't on the list considering it's one of the best webmaster resources on the net. *lol.

In fact other than your featured resources I couldn't find any other resources on the site.

nice clean design, easy to navigate. Joomla is some great software.. I would try to add more content to the site to keep visitors coming back to your site. other than that.. the site looked great.

I really like your site and I think it's a good idea. How do you get your site to auto adjust with screen size like that? What method are you using?

Joomla auto does it

As for the content, I know it limited but I'm basically adding a site a day and finding more and more sites all of the time, and the content is directed most towards new to intermediate webmasters but hopefully I'll be able to find some new advanced websites that are great.

Edit:I played around with some colors tell me what you think (the blues are brighter)

I like it and its you know, one of those worth a visit sites, if you can keep finding good websites to put on there people will keep returning to check it out.

I'd give it some time.

I viewed your site with FF1.5

Thank you

Due to the overwhelming hatred of my template I decided to change it completely :-\
I would like to get your new comments not biased by what it looked like in the past if you had already seen it.

Like the idea of the iste - but have to agree not wild on the colours.

One thing - in the featured website page the buttons blew out. I'm using Fox 1.5 if that helps.

currently I am aware of the problem and it happens to only be in firefox and not IE, but I am looking for a work around.

The problem we've found (we think ; ) ) is that Fox and IE both render pixel heights and widths differently if you use padding in your CSS. I've found that a few times changing the padding to margins eliminates the problem. (It's a bit early for me at the mo, so if it's the other way round I appologise)

Also Fox rewards you with crisp layout if you set widths and heights on your divs, be that % or px, but IE lets you off and will generally get things right even if the CSS is a bit loose.

God only knows what Opera gets up to.

It turns out that it wasn't the center column at all and it was actually the right side, a latest addition was taking up so much space on the right side and make the right side push into the middle which collapsed the left...tricky huh?
