Your title, "What do you think of my site" insinuates that you want people to judge your website. If you want this; post it in the "Site Reviews" forum.

If you want feedback on how or if to improve something, try locating a problem, and then ask "How may I improve this".

that's why he is asking for help... he wants you to locate something that is wrong because he might be not as advanced and he need your advanced guidance.

another thing is 10, 20, 30 + pair of eyes is better then 1 pair of eyes looking for "problems".

but a wrong section, that's true

about the web - I like it. except I would think about moving the whole design in a center of a page. it is centered already but only horizontally. I wonder how it is going to look if it is also centered vertically.. try experimenting

As long as the thread is already here I would say the following:

1) You're mixing navigation metaphors. People are used to tabs being single locations and taking you directly there. They're not used to tabs having sub-menus, and it's made extra confusing by the fact that some have sub-menus and some don't. Also you don't want to use the word "home" to describe multiple locations on your site.

2) The main graphic doesn't always load quickly on each page. In general I might suggest moving the name up to the smaller header, and free up the space below the nav-bar to make product-specific marketing pitches. So each graphic could look the same but have a different background color (matching the tab if possible) and different wording. For example web design could be

"Technolane web design: affordable, elegant, and on-message." (or whatever)

3) I'd make the body text a little larger. Maybe .2em or 2px, whichever you decide to use. Just remember IExploder won't let you resize px-based fonts because MS is inept and doesn't know how to design a standards-compliant, friendly browser. ;)

I guess this thread will be moved so might as well just comment.

As suggested before, you should take a tutorial in CSS and design with that, instead of tables. You could shrink your current code down five times or something like that. Position your CSS in an external file and link to that, do the same with the javascript.

Why not position the two columns with equal margins to the left and right? Right now, it's a little too far to the left.

Are you sure flash is the only way to make that banner work. Perhaps use javascript to rotate the captions and just have the the bubbles be .gifs. That is what I would do. It would make it harder but perhaps more user friendly?

I agree with all the comments so far. Just wanted to add that I love the little people with the thought bubbles, but it looks a little wierd that the bubbles are not all in increasing size in my opinion. Also when in "IT Services" the text touches the edge of the tab.

With the Flash I would change the text, use a font that is smoother and bold. Also, I'd make the bubbles a little faster and have one fade out while another begins the transition to fade in again.

Thanks for the great comments,

i don't really see how the drop downs on some and not on other navigation buttons is confusing lots of sites do it, i will change the flash font to a smoother bolder font, and move it services across so it fits properly, i want to convert this site to CSS but i don't know where to start, could someone give me a clue ? :thumbsup:

thanks

Hi there,

I am no CSS expert, but I found that when I was starting CSS; it was useful to put the CSS on the html page until you have got it right. Then cut and paste to the seperate CSS sheet later.

Put
<style type="text/css">

</style>

in the head section and put your code there.

You probably know this already, but just in case.

The advice helped me.

Happy coding.

Hi
I would make the current page inactive in menus. It is frustrating, especially with flash, to have to wait until the current page reloads when you click the page you are already on in the menu.
Clever page though.

For your CSS problem I would suggest you head to BonRouge (http://www.bonrouge.com) and take his CSS/HTML tutorial to get you into the swing of things. It's a comprehensive guide, but starts from the very beginning so you get your foot in the door from the start, which should ultimately make things easier. I'd then recommend you get some books, or visit W3Schools (http://www.w3schools.com) and go through the CSS guide there as well. They have a really good reference section in case you don't understand anything.
