Please ignore the language (it`s romanian) and focus on look and feel. I`m looking forward to some "foreign opinions".

The pull down menu boxes at the top need to be just a little wider so that all the word can be viewed, as of now, it appears to chop off about half of the last letter of each word, otherwise i cant see much wrong.

I`m sorry, but they seem fine to me on Windows XP Professional and IE6. What browser do you use?

Fine, but you should add some rollover effects to the left menu bar. The site looks static... :?

I like it!

I have the same issue with the drop-down menus. I'm using XP and Mozilla FireFox. They just fit in IE for me.

I'm wondering if the navigation could take up less space. It seems the content area is rather cramped.

The ads look well positioned. Professional looking.

Otherwise I do really like it!

I did something with the menu...a fade out/fade in effect. Tell me what you think.

I will try to fix the dropdowns...although they look fine to me!

Looks and feels really good. The top banner looks ace and is postioned really well. Images and banner r well placed. Colour scheme wroks well but could be slightly improved with more contrast maybe. Rollover images work well, and the drop down lists look quite impressive. Looks like certain sections have a large ammount of content and others don't guess thats being worked on. The advertsing banners dont look out of place which is a good thing, the load time is fairly decent. Clicked a few banners mite get you some cash I guess lol! Nice straight to the point contact form even if I cant read it and overall a nice site to visit! Not a clue wot any of it means thought! There ya go loads of feedback for you mate!

I`ll look over the color, thing is, it`s about kindergardens, so I need joyfull colors...
Gradinite means kindergardens. It gives the visitor informations about kindergardens and other child stuff!
Yes, the site is still under construction so, but there will be more information there. Thank you for clicking on the banners, but they`re just for banner exchange.
10x for the feedback!

I think the overall design is good. I think the thing that's keeping it from becoming great, though, is that it seems as though the menu on the left is a bit... bulky, if you will. Perhaps they need to be a bit smaller. That's my only crit though, it's nicely design and works well with the gradient background.

Nice site, I am veiwing it in Mozilla Firefox and yes, the dropboxes need to be wider. Look into getting Firefox so you can see what I am looking at. To give you an idea:

IE: drop boxes are the right size and are several pixels below the blie line.

Mozilla: The drop boxes are too small, they chop off the last letter of each word, and the boxes are touching the blue line.


Everything else is uniform on both browsers. Looks good!

Thing is I`m more interested in IE users, as over 95% of romanian user have it! So...

But how do I fix the dropdowns?

I like your site design. I suggest using more text links in the nav bar (rather then the graphic links)

Generally, I don't see to much wrong with this website. The only thing I might be picky about is the top, as it seems rather white and plain. The menu icons are well done, and make sense towards their intended use. In FireFox, the top dropboxes there, the words don't span inside of them, so they look a little strange since they're collapsed or something on the word itself.

Possible make the news post a little more knowledgable so people know what they're going to read when they click on it.

Overall a well created website is good load times. Keeping it simple and useable. Good work on it.

It appears as though the table which contains your select might be limiting the size.

Try increasing the width of those table cells, though by doing this you will likely mess up the current alignment.

Also, I'm not seeing any mouseover effects in firefox.

Absolutely great job on the site... I reviewed the site from a search optimization and again great job. Something you may want to consider is optimizing your images... for example the rename your graphics the term you are optimizing for (assuming the graphic is related) and naming the graphic...

Again, great job.
