I think it's quite a well organised website, and the colours work well together, but you should change the green colour in the logo to match that of the rest of the website.

I don't know if it's intentional or not, but the two virtual number links to USA and Voip are inoperative.

I like the fact that you've kept the text relatively short ... there's nothing more frustrating than a big block of text.

There are Ten Errors in the html.

You seem to have used a template. I hate templates. I despise them with unimaginable passion. They make the website not your own, but someone else's. If you are wanting to become a successful webmaster then learn the code (if you haven't already) and make your own website. They may be fine for small personal sites and the like, but not a company.

The effect that is on the homepage link to tell the user what page he/she is on stays on the homepage link. Annoyingly frustrating and confusing to would-be customers.

Two of the links at the bottom of the page,'privacy' and 'contact', go to the contact page, which is called 'term.html' (!).

I also find it weird that you have an external stylesheet ('default.css'), but you've got a little bit of internal CSS as well:

Code: [ Select ]
<style type="text/css">
<!--
.style1 {font-size: 13pt}
.style2 {color: #0065FF}
.style3 {color: #666666}
.style5 {
    font-size: 15pt;
    color: #FF8900;
    font-weight: bold;
}
-->
</style>
  1. <style type="text/css">
  2. <!--
  3. .style1 {font-size: 13pt}
  4. .style2 {color: #0065FF}
  5. .style3 {color: #666666}
  6. .style5 {
  7.     font-size: 15pt;
  8.     color: #FF8900;
  9.     font-weight: bold;
  10. }
  11. -->
  12. </style>

Wow... Between me testing in site in every browser but the Kitchen Sink and me clicking "Post Reply," Breeze has managed to say almost everything I was going to.

Anyway, in addition to what I quoted above, I've got another beef - I really do not like the colours. It could be just me - and I'm sure it is, to an extent - but it's too much, too bright. Light green, light orange, white, light blue, and a mix of black and grey text = too much for my tastes. I'd either use black text everywhere or switch out the white with a lighter shade of another colour - or an off white - or maybe tone down the green in the background. I'm not sure what, it's just a bit too bright for me.

Then again, that might just be me, so I wouldn't worry too much.

What I do like is that your site looks exactly the same in every browser I tested it in - the usual set of Firefox 2, IE 7, Maxthon 2, Opera 9, Netscape 9, and Lynx. The design didn't change a bit in any of them. Now, though you lose points for using a template, I'll toss you a couple back for using one that doesn't blow up when tested in multiple browsers.

Wow, we both started consecutive posts with wow. That is quite a list. I only used FF2, IE7 and Opera 9. :lol:

thanks for the input guys.. any idea how to fix what this guy was saying..

"The effect that is on the homepage link to tell the user what page he/she is on stays on the homepage link. Annoyingly frustrating and confusing to would-be customers."

I want it to highlight only the page your currently on. Thanks

Here's the code for the menu as is:

Code: [ Select ]
<div id="menu">
    <ul>
        <li class="current_page_item"><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/index.html">Homepage</a></li>
     <li ><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/virtual-numbers-service.html" class="style1">Service</a></li>
      <li><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/signup.html" class="style1">Signup</a></li>
     <li><a href="virtual-numbers-about.html" class="style1">About</a></li>
     <li><a href="virtual-numbers-contact.html" class="style1">Contact</a></li>

 </ul>
</div>
  1. <div id="menu">
  2.     <ul>
  3.         <li class="current_page_item"><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/index.html">Homepage</a></li>
  4.      <li ><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/virtual-numbers-service.html" class="style1">Service</a></li>
  5.       <li><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/signup.html" class="style1">Signup</a></li>
  6.      <li><a href="virtual-numbers-about.html" class="style1">About</a></li>
  7.      <li><a href="virtual-numbers-contact.html" class="style1">Contact</a></li>
  8.  </ul>
  9. </div>


All you've got to do is put 'class="current_page_item"' onto whatever the link that is that page. For example, the menu for the 'virtual-numbers-contact.html' page would be:

Code: [ Select ]
<div id="menu">
    <ul>
        <li><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/index.html">Homepage</a></li>
     <li ><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/virtual-numbers-service.html" class="style1">Service</a></li>
      <li><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/signup.html" class="style1">Signup</a></li>
     <li><a href="virtual-numbers-about.html" class="style1">About</a></li>
     <li class="current_page_item"><a href="virtual-numbers-contact.html" class="style1">Contact</a></li>

 </ul>
</div>
  1. <div id="menu">
  2.     <ul>
  3.         <li><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/index.html">Homepage</a></li>
  4.      <li ><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/virtual-numbers-service.html" class="style1">Service</a></li>
  5.       <li><a href="http://www.jupeenumbers.com/signup.html" class="style1">Signup</a></li>
  6.      <li><a href="virtual-numbers-about.html" class="style1">About</a></li>
  7.      <li class="current_page_item"><a href="virtual-numbers-contact.html" class="style1">Contact</a></li>
  8.  </ul>
  9. </div>


Remember to delete it from the other links.

your contact page jumps about 5 millimeters to the right in Firefox.

also I have to say I agree with Master Bramble, the colors are really really bright. maybe if you'd just tone down the green in the background, or make it into a gradient not towards white but towards another, more solid shade of green.

otherwise it looks nice and neat!

your website is a bit bright which may hit your visitors eyes and drive them away. Work on the color. About the design I would say its quite clean.

Nice looking site. Clean and simple layout.

I would have liked to see a pictorial representation of the business model on the front page.
I think a lot of real estate got wasted on top.

Great work.
