What do you think about my web?





kevinalle
Itīs here: http://kevinalle.com.ar.

the homepage is very incomplete. I put that for the moment until I have something better.
The Foto gallery is a PHP script totally written by me. If someone wants I can reveal it.
So: what do you think of my design? What could be better?
And: dou you like my pictures?
Bengt
just a question,
where can you register a .com.ar ; and is it free ? Very Happy
kevinalle
hey, that doesnt answer my question!

Yes, its free. http://www.nic.ar. But you must do a lot of burocracy.
It takes time, but you can, yes.
Rsam
Not a fan of the growing/shrinking eyeballs and the eye irritant orange colour. The structure of the website is fine, easy to navigate, mostly due to its simplicity.

This page is not Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional!

Then ... why have You placed the "Valid XHTML" image in Your site ? There is a lot of errors...
Next thing - If You want to make valid sites ... use DIV's not Tables for Layout ... tables are for tabular data ...

When You select "Portfolio" this descrpition is too long and it's sliding on content ...

Gallery script ... hmm ... its ok Smile

If you want to experiment with flash and things like that do it on test pages, but get rid of the eye thing on your main page. The orange also doesn't do a whole lot for me. (Orange websites can work, but usually not such a strong orange)

Also don't put tags on your site if it's not true, your site is not XHTML 1.0 compliant, it's not CSS compliant, and it's not open source as your page has a copyright at the bottom reserving all rights.

Other than that the content is good, excellent pictures and good work.

This design kinda sucks. The orange and blue don't go very well together and I don't get why there are all these eyes? The menu is okay, but when you hover over Portfolio it says something in a different language, which, makes the menu kinda spaz. Which is annoying. Yeah, needs alot of work In my opinion.
chasbeen
Affect is quite good. However sequence reminds me of what decomposing Tomato Soup must look like. Menu is jumpy and could control random patterns that appear? Exclamation
SlowWalkere
I don't mind the orange background, I kind of like bright colors. But I agree that the eyes are a bit weird.

A few possible improvements...

Use css/divs for layout. The layout is pretty simple, so it could be done easily, and it will simplify your code (as well as make it standards-compliant, as noted before).

In the photo album, I think it would be better if all of the pictures were aligned in a normal grid. As it is, when there is a thinner picture, the row gets offset. Perhaps make the white square around each picture a standard size (the size of the wider pictures) so that everything lines up vertically.

Instead of the floating eyes on the main page, put some kind of text introducing you and your site. Who are you? Why do you have photos up? If people are looking at your work portfolio, they probably want to know a little something about you too.

The pictures could also use some kind of caption when you bring up the larger picture. For example, I like the picture of all the dice. But it seems kind of out of place and I'm left wondering why and where you took it?

Good luck,

kevinalle
Thank you for all the tips.
I made some changes like blowing up some of the buttons (you are right), but I did NOT change mt background color.
This color was chosen because of a must, so everything can change except for that.
Walkere: I didnīt quite understand why divs and not tables... the tables are all right with the standart. The main problem whith it which is why I finally decided to make it non-standart is the embed. How can you make a standart compliant embed? I tried with <object> but it seemed not to work on some browsers.

The eye thing is still there because I havenīt finished my profile yet. This is a temporary animation I will change for my description.

Now Iīm going to make the images align, and also the "next" button to navigate images in big size.

Thank you for everything,
K

(The picture of all the dice was taken in the art gallery of venice)

I like your content. Very nice photos Wink

About design - the same thing confusing me - background colour. What is the reason NOT to change it?
SlowWalkere
While using tables for layout is technically compliant in that its valid html, it goes against the spirit of the web standards.

The point of web standards is two fold. On the one hand, make html easier to read by browsers. This means making sure that you have closing tags, enclosing attributes in quotes, etc. etc. All the good stuff that makes valid html. The second purpose is to make html more readable and manipulable by people. This is where separating content from form comes in. And so tables are meant for tabular data, while divs are meant for layout. All of the layout and form should be defined in an external style sheet, which generally means defining a few div tags to make up the bulk of your website (and replace the old tables).

After learning CSS, I can definitely say that I prefer divs to tables. They're more logical and fluid, and much easier to edit later on. But, the choice is of course up to you. It's just a suggestion.

As for the embed, I did a search and came up with this article from A List Apart - http://alistapart.com/articles/byebyeembed. It shows how to embed flash, windows media player, and quicktime movies without the embed tag. I only tried the flash one, but it works fine for me. The basic format is as follows...
Code:
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="width" height="height" data="flashmovie.swf">
    <param name="movie" value="flashmovie.swf" />
</object>


You can add any other param tags that you need, but that set up loaded for me in both Netscape and IE.

Oh, and I'm still wondering - what is with the picture of all the dice?

1. i see it;s using flash on the main and it's nice Smile
2. but it seem it very2x low at information. *i know2x, it still on developing*
3. good job, and well done Smile
kevinalle
Thank you a lot Walkere.
I am making my page valid.
Just one error is still left: what is the valid version of onMouseOver and onMouseOut?
These two are the last errors I have.
Thank you again,

For those You Use css atributes like a:link, a:hover, a:visited, a:active
(You may replace a by td, li, div, span...) Smile

I like the animation on the page. It also helps that I can read spainish. Also the rollover effects were a nice touch too. Just out of curiosity what program did you use to make the animation and was it easy to learn and use? Still it is a pretty good site.
kevinalle
b4r4t:
can I make a display:block or a display:none of ANOTHER object with css?
What I wanto to do is make appear and dissapear some text when I hover on a button? Is it possible with CSS?

medievalman26:
For the animation I used Flash (MX 2004).
Its quite easy to use, specially because I didnīt use any actionScripting to achieve the animation.

here you can download It:

here you can learn it:

You can use OnMouse events ...

If you lowercase your attibutes (OnMouseOver to onmouseover and so on) it should validate properly. Smile

It's because XHTML is case sensitive, and Your document declaration is XHTML 1.0 Transitional Smile
evilryu530
looks pretty cool that you wrote php script, ur work has good ideas, i like the mountain and the zipper, good concepts, just need a little fine tuning and tweaking. i think your work is progressing, take the good advice from the people that posted above me, they have good points.
biedr0na666
i see that pictures open in new window (_blank) I don't like it here, I would prefer to browse through your pictures in the same window.
Preferably this way:

http://bmatych.frih.net/kevinalle.jpg

here's what I would do:
1. make top banner and left menu separate files (let's say top.php and left.php)
2. 'require_once' them in both index.php and showFoto.php

or maybe you could do it differently, well it's just some quick try:)
kevinalle
Wow!
these last posts were really helpful to me. Thanks to all of you.

I will try the onmouseover right now.

biedr0na666, I see you got really involved with this. I like it so.
You are right about the _blank, but I programmed it using tabs. And with tabs it looked really grate; because you could open as many photos as you liked, in different tabs and open/close them as one wishes.
Iīll try to invent something new for it. I liked your tip. The separate files are a must now that I think about it.

Again thanks to all,
K
b4r4t
remember that target=_blank isn't in XHTML specification = no validation Smile
kevinalle
the xhtml validator validated it perfectly...
What would be the valid version if not?
Thanks for all the advise. I just made all my page valid.

I don't think anyone should say anything about the layout when it's all about one person's taste. Keep in mind that some people like that kind of stuff, and some people don't.

Just comment on the usability and learnability.

I personally liked that little menu at the top, it looked pretty cool.

Your site is very learnable, easy to first use for anyone. I think all the php and css and get firefox little refrences are a little annoyoing. They aren't all the same size and it just doesn't look that professional.

Try to put like just one or two, you know?

I love your photo gallery and would love to know the code XD

I like skiing! XD

Iagree that no one should be commenting on the layout it is always a personal preference for the designer unless you are getting paid for it then it would be the customers' choice.
coreymanshack
hmmm i dont think that the mouseover event should make the whole page move around... .make some predefined room for the extra content...

Yes, Its true.
I may add a "links" button and throw all the stuff in there.
the code for the picture gallery is made by me, so it is not very profesional, but it works. When I have some time Iīll post it. Itīs not so long either.

Thank again for giving your opinion,
K

hi mate..

about ur webpage i think (u ask people bout what they think so heres my point of view) u can do better with colors ....orange its a very strong color , so you ll have to figured out which other can combine with the orange, i mean , the buttons color, lines, shadows and stuff .....

buena suerte y pulso ,,con la practica se llega a la exelencia
looksbad
Meh its not bad the flash thing can get quite annoying perhaps with one cycle of those eyes goign and fading the word *(YOURSITE)* should fade in and stop pehaps some music, but its W3 checked simple plain and ellegant! GJ
grade8_web
That is very nice I must say at first though lol I thought you had a bunch of spelling errors but then I noticed it was not english but I like how you advertised those other computer stuff at the side and gave credit to php that was realy nice of you.

In all well done!
kevinalle
Hi!
thanks for all the comments!
I added a Blog to my page.
Itīs easy. I registered in blogger.com, but instead of making a normal blog whith a normal tamplate, I put my ftp data and the blog is on my site!
I also modifyed the tamplate so that it fitted to my site. The only thing that was left of the blogger is the button. I think its really cool. I still have to see if archieving works well, but the Idea is not bad!
Thanks again for your comments,
K

Really nice , especially , the orange color depicts a cool and fresh flavour to the photo site and gives it a kinda good look .

And i think your photo script is light and worth the code .

On the whole 4 out of 5 .

I need you to work on the NAVIGATIOn alone , pal .

Though it is simple , you could make it attractive and using images on the sides could greatly help .
ivanegues
I like the structure and the extras of the page. It shows you care.
I dont like that much the eyes, and the convination of orange and black.
Keep the good work.

Nice touch the blog.

Very Happy
kevinalle
Ok, thank U people.
I have been working on my site and I made some changes.
Again: Orange is not changable. Maybe the black, yes.
What color could I use instead of black for the text.
White prehaps. It can be too shocking. Any other suggestions?

Wel... I wait for more suggestions.
Thank you again!,
Kevin
