Here is the final product: http://kcw1304.frih.net/wordpress

As evidenced by the file name I used a wordpress template and changed the pictures and colors. Hope you enjoy!

Both are nice Smile But you should ad a white background to the text.

Example:

Use white background in the red area

About ... http://kcw1304.frih.net/
Never use a photograph as background... the image is 433kb! So if a user visites your website he allready has to load 433kb...
A photograph also almost makes the text inpossible to read...
I like the format of the content of the second one (http://www4.ncsu.edu/~kecaldwe/index2.html) more..

Never use a photograph as background... the image is 241kb! So if a user visites your website he allready has to load 241kb...

I like the idea of using symbols or in this case flowers for navigation. It can be a real help and make the navigation easier for the users. But not here...add a small word on the image or below the image or wherever, just make sure the user knows where he is going to end...Now it might just link to a website about me, frihost, msn, flowers or anything else.... you get the point.

Hope I helped...

You Mean over the background picture, like just have dark text on the white background in the red area?

This may be a stupid question, but why does it matter the size of the background image? I am assuming that most people have pretty fast connections these days, but I could be wrong..

I tried to pick picture/font combinations to avoid this problem and it shows up pretty 'readable' on my screen.. is it hard to read for you?

Yeah, I tried to fix the problem of people not know where they were going in the current frihost.net site.. maybe I will combine pictures with words..

Just like that Smile Recolor the text to black or something else dark, and white background color, but only in the red area, if you understand me Laughing Smile

i agree with tomppe. and the whole photo for the background, don't worry about it. even with 56k modem, thats not a very long load time. this forum, for example, takes several seconds at least to visit.

I like the second one too. And yes a white screen over the picture sould make the links pop more. Very nice. Interested to see what develops. Let me know if need any help.

Both are very nice, I'd prefer the first because it looks more brighter and happier! I too am a believer, so it's nice to meet new believers here! Laughing Wink Idea

Thanks, it didn't show up because I have it set so I have to approve new people's comments before they show up-- and I have fixed the link on my website
pll
But I saw the comment before he was approved is it normal ?
kcw1304
I think you can see your own comment before it is 'moderated' but no one else can..

I don't really like that theme.

The menu background colour is a bit... wrong.
Also, the background itself is kinda ugly.

You should go for "slick" themes (search for wordpress community theme browser, there are plenty there) if your Blog is about personal stuff.
kcw1304
What do you mean by 'slick'? Do you have an example?
