Need feedback for my website





kronso.23
I have just finished designing the layout part of my site, it doesn't have any content yet, but I think i'm done with the layout part. I'm at a very noob level of web design, but i'm learning very fast, I hope to start coding/designing my forum soon, so for now, ignore the forum. CSS has been kicking my A** lately, so maybe some of you can review my code and offer some suggestions, I appreciate all feedback, suggestions, insults, threats, etc. thanks, here is the link

Nice site and gratifying to the eye colors. One remark - "over" image for navigation buttons(on left) must be loaded with main page, not at the moment when user place it's mouse cursor over button. But, again, overall impressions from your site is very positive.

I wouldn't call you a noob anymore as you said. I think it would look better if it was centered though. You should also make the header look a bit like the buttons, that way they match.
Helios
This I think you should do:
Center everything first.
Then, you should match the colour of the right block with the colour of the menu, or balance between the two colours on the logo itself(gradient, maybe?).

Overall, it looks pretty good as a base for better design.

Yeah, I have recieved feedback about the centering, I made the layout at my home computer which is small res, but then when I go to school on the high res computers it's extremely craning to the neck. I've just barely made the smooth transition from tabled design to divs, and it's working out really smooth, except for one thing, when I try to wrap all my divs in one main div, and center the site, everything gets jumbled up and centering happens where I don't want it to, I think if I just gave the text-align:left attribute where I want to keep traditional alignment I think it might work out, but as with positioning in CSS I'm an extreme noob, at the moment all my elements are a mixture of relative and absolute, so there is bound to be disaster when I try to center things Confused. I'm still reading up on alot of tutorials, and I'm going to be taking a web design class in school real soon... so I'll keep you guys posted, thanks for your feedback guys, very much appreciated Very Happy

EDIT: In response to dotnet about the rollovers, they should preload. this is the code for a button that I have in CSS

Code:

a.image_tutorials
    {
    display:block;
    width: 163px;
    height: 40px;
    background-image: url(images/tutorials.gif);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    }
a.image_tutorials:hover
    {
    background-image: url(images/tutorials_2.gif);
    }


so it should preload... But thanks for bringing this up because I think I have realized the problem, in the first class, a.image_tutorials, I specified a width and height, but in the a.image_tutorials:hover I didn't, so I'm going to try that... once again thx for feedback, greatly appreciated Very Happy

EDIT: Sweet, it works!!! I specified the height and width for the hover rollovers and they preload just fine now, ty dotnet for bringing that up, much appreciated Very Happy

1st of all - make a div called container or something like that - then place all things in this div - you can center this containter div Smile
Next thing is that header.gif will be better as a background (in CSS) then a <img thing Smile
3rd thing ... hmm TITLE of the website is not SEO friendly Smile dont use [] , the best titles are

BASE TITLE | Description for a specific site.

Make different titles for all subpages Smile That will make Your site mor "attractive" for google bot Smile

Make a title for links <a href="#" tytle="xxx"

Check site in http://validator.w3.org/ -> you have errors Smile

there is a validator for CSS too http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/ -> but You don't have errors Smile

About centering - here is an example Smile

http://poker.ovh.org/layout/

My lay ... it's in Polish Razz Text is just to see how it looks Smile its something like "This text is for checking the align, pading, links, etc" You may look in CSS source and check how it is positioned Smile

looks really good champ, aside from the center thing...
i will definatley be following your tutorials also, as i am confident with tables, but would like to re-do www.umness.com using css and right now i knowledgless on css aside from linking a css to determine text elements and scroll bar colours!

great work, good colours too

Magic Mushrooms are illegal, dude.
kronso.23
Yeah, magic mushrooms are illegal, but who is saying they are magic. the site has nothing to do with drugs... it's just a name.

b4r4t, I will definately try that once i get some free time from school... and I will definately redo the titles... thanks for your advice. it really helps an the feedback keeps me going, thx guys
bjwok
how about a guestbook too? always handy...
kronso.23
Alright, I put into consideration the comments about the centering, so I gave it a shot and after numerous trials and errors I finally have it right! This is the kind of feeling, accomplishing a hard task on my own that keeps me going... here is the link again if you guys want to check it out, it looks much more pleasing to the eye. www.shroombox.frih.net

Nope... it still dun work correctly Smile
Firefox almost ok - just PHP error
IE - look yourself Smile It's crashing Smile (but i think that's because of this PHP error - tke right frame width has changed and with float thing it gives effect as You se in IE now:P )

You have to recheck code , rewrite and "everything gonna be all right"

Yeah, but...

Shrooms is slang for Magic Mushrooms, and you've got crazy neon colours all over your site.

I'm just pointing out that most people will probably assume thats what its about.
kronso.23
Well, the frihost admin approved the domain, so I don't think there would be anything wrong with it if it's just a name... I'm sure they know what shrooms is slang for, but that didn't stop them from approving it. Colors are colors, there is no reference to drugs there. You can't get past the fact there is mushrooms in the logo and give some constructive criticism rather than pointing out the flaws in the name...

updated the site, added a javascript preloader
Technaut
... what are magic mushrroms?

anyway, totally like the colors. really nice site. the only downside to it is that right now, it has no content. but it still looks nice. Very Happy

You probably went to the site during my updating, for some odd reason I can't get PHP5 to work on my computer with apache... I don't know, I've kinda given up on that so I just update my files and upload them directly to test them, so you probably caught my site on an updating session... I have everything updated and just how I like it. I got the code validated with w3c and everything seems to be working smoothly... now just to work on the content Very Happy

wow..not bad..i like your designs Laughing but work on the banner. Is kinna plain to me...
awesty
it looks pretty cool. but im not a big fan of the black with light green color sheme Very Happy
Whong
I think it is quite cool! Nice work, but you could maeby have some other colors too like maeby red or blue, but thats just my opinion.

It's good! Wink Idea

Consider having more contrast in the stuff written on the banner. It appears that you have the pre-loading nav down, but I'm on broadband, so I might not know. (I haven't gone rumaging through your code.) Also, I would add a short description of the site in the banner, so people won't reference the site to drugs.
kronso.23
You're totally right Riv, alot of people would get negative first impressions... x_X. I'm going to start working on making the entire site expandable to 100% screen width. but, I'm not sure how I would do that, I've doing that by cutting off the sides of the banner, and then slicing 1px wide background for the banner then putting it as repeat-x, but no matter how hard I try, I can't get the right side of the banner to fit on the edge... >_< here is a link to show you what I mean... http://www.shroombox.frih.net/testpage.html
benjad
Not bad for an experimental page.

I tend to rant and rave about forums... Consider carefully if your site is ready to have a forum, or if it just needs a shoutbox or a guestbook.

The frontpage needs an overview of the site to better guide the visitor. Is this a drugs site? Is it a personal site? Is it a tech site? I couldn't tell.
kronso.23
Yeah, it's pretty much just a layout for now. I can tell if I were to expand and put up more content, I would most definately ditch the current layout... after I learn about web design some more in my IT class. My site is pretty small, and I don't think a forum is necessary, but I'm just trying to acquaint myself with the whole forum thing, I think I would try out other forums also... if I were to expand I would probably buy a .com domain, and expand hosting as necessary... but, frihost is providing some pretty kick a** hosting so far, I don't think I would have to change hosting for a long time, thx frihost Wink
Dustin
hahahaha your site is awesome the links are so perfectly designed Razz
stampnights
i love the look, but i did assumeyou were a druggy or a wannabe. If not, you may want to rethink your title. I didn't see any problem with the centering or the colors. If it's you, it's you! What do these people know? I thought it was very unique and I am impressed with what you have learned if you are still in high school. Wish I had known all this stuff at your age.
