I like the flash banner on top. The flash menu is kind of anoying after a little while, but I'll deal. The little dotted lines around "welcome" and "whats new" look sort of funky, I don't know if you wanted to copy the flash effects in the menu, but I think you should just create an image for the headings.

The forum looks kinda wierd compared to the website, its totally different, def. change the template you used.

I like that you have a buddy icon and a chat in AIM thingy. :-)

text-align center works for IE but for other browsers you need to add margin: 0 auto;
I couldnt gt it to work right though so on my site I put everything in a container div and I use the foloowing CSS
Code: [ Select ]
left: 50%;

width: 774px;
top: 0px;
margin-left: -387px;
  1. left: 50%;
  2. width: 774px;
  3. top: 0px;
  4. margin-left: -387px;


774 being the width of my container and -387 which is half the width as a negative number. works in every broswer Ive tried
here is more on the issue

I don't like your design. How's that for blunt :lol: I do, however, like some of your music-PM me if you want a little free exposure. On your CSS issues, take a look at my site and see what is different about my CSS. I had the same problem but couldn't figure it out so I had to pay rtm to do it :oops: Check out his site http://www.caffinefulled.net for CSS tutorials

Thanks for the reviews guys.

Thanks for the help onm trying to center the damn thing. I hope CSS3 will implement something to make centering DIV's easier. Maybe everyone should just switch to Opera considering that it was built with compliance in mind.

jlknauff, a little more details on what you don't like would be helpful. The layout? navagtion? colors? c'mon, your an expert, you should have a little more use than that!

CrazyP, thanks for that little hack there. I will definately try that one.

Poly, they are planning on a couple of concerts at some kinds battle of bands thing that I think is in Nov. Bookmark the site and check back every so often for more detailed info.

I know nothing about css, but design wise I think its a little too boxy, and I have never really been a fan of the column design. Another thing; I was horribly offended at the size of your mp3 player... or was I?

The mp3 player resizes with the browser window. If you wanted it smaller you shoulda resized. As far as boxy goes, look at OZZU!!!!! A lot of websites are boxy nowadays, that is just the style. When CSS3 introduces a way that is standards to make rounded corners I am sure you'll see a lot more of it. As for now though, there are a lot of ppl accessing the site on 56k modems and I don't feel like slowing them down for some rounded corner images.

Do you mean like a different sound for each button or just use a little bit more user friendly sound?

I like the music :D
And the site looks good, just the header moving in and out is a little annoying.

And for the CSS, change
Code: [ Select ]
body
{
padding: 2px;
text-align: center;
}
  1. body
  2. {
  3. padding: 2px;
  4. text-align: center;
  5. }

to
Code: [ Select ]
body {
  padding: 2px;
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0 auto;
}
  1. body {
  2.   padding: 2px;
  3.   text-align: center;
  4.   margin: 0 auto;
  5. }

CSS2 has something to make centering divs easier. It looks like

margin: 0 auto;


Works in IE6, opera and Geckoesque browsers. It doesn't work in IE5. The reason it doesn't work in IE6 for you is because you ommitted your doctype. Use a doctype and it really makes things easier.

another blatent plug, but this should give you all you need to know about centering divs, and includes the reasons why CrazyP's centering method is a bad idea:
http://www.caffeinefuelled.net/layouts/ ... tered1.php

As for the aesthetic, it looks ok, although I'm not keen on the title zoom in and out and I really think you need something to break up the black. You could probably do with something that instantly tells you this is a band site and what kind of music they play, something to grab the visitors attention and I feel that your front page is lacking that

I'll check out the music when I get home ;)

Great site. I think the sounds on the rollovers are particularly nice although a little on the load side. Everything looks clean and simple. I particularly how everything dynamically loads. I might suggest adding a few more graphics and flare to the header though. It might liven up the site a bit.

All in all i think it is a very well done site.

Thanks RTM223! I finally got it centered.

About making everyone know it is a band site, what do you think about playing a music clip? A lot of other 'posters' say it is a bad idea but it will get the point across.

I had an intro I made in Flash before, but I suck at flash so I trashed it. I want to make a little video intro on there but they are so lazy that I can never get them to send me any footage to work with.
