okay u guys have probably seen the home page. in case u haven't, it's here (http://www10.brinkster.com/asaakitesting/auk/).
anyway as u know there are supposed to be other pages for lessons, user control panel, etc. the problem is that this 'straw-sack which rests on my neck' isn't coming up with a suitable template for these other pages.
here's an inside page:
but it just looks wrong to me. are the logos misplaced or something? any suggestions? does the all the empty white space on the left of the arabic logo look ridiculous?
i thought of having the background green as on the home page, but maybe that would be just too much green?
can't think how to fix those logos. i need the arabic logo (the picture that quite a few probably can't read;)), as well as the english one, both on the page.

ho ho ho... i really enjoy reading meaningless ramblings... heh heh heh.
the site?... ah yes, the site. firstly... what happened to the homepage? i was sure you sorted out that annoying 2 pixel long scroll... :(
that page you showed looked alright to me, p'raps you need to take a while not looking at it... after i while i know i get bored of a design and sure its alot worse than it is...
anyways... the white space to the left of that logo which i cannot read doesnt look to bad, it seems to add some character and style to the page :)
dont give it a green background... that wouldnt look too great. methinks it looks ok as it is... p'raps a little more contrast between the light green and the white in the title box kinda thing?...
its looking good :thumbsup:

on second thoughts, how about moving the "english" (dont look very english to me;)) logo into the vast white space next to the arabic one, then putting the "some lesson" title where the english one was... p'raps with one of them breadcrumb things if thats the kinda thing that would work... or something else if it wouldnt... etc etc... well... that might look better, or it might not. wont know til you try ;)

I think your arabic logo up top is perfectly fine. It serves as a good anchor for the page. There is a lot of things over on the left side (your nav, sign in, search) and then on the right side there is just text. The image helps to balance things out and, I think, makes your page that much better.
The only thing I can think about to put into the white space to left of the image would be some sort of small random design, preferably green (the same green as your site). I dunno, I just enjoy random abstract doodleys (yeah...about that word).
P.S. Arghh!! Typing a paper for English class has gotten me into the habit of hitting Ctrl+S every two seconds. The forum just beeps at me when I do that....:rolleyes:

I'm using Mozilla 1.3, and I think your CSS positioning is off, which means it'll probably be off in Opera too.
If you've only viewed it in IE, I'd suggest viewing it in ANY other browser to see what I'm talking about...

redhead: i'll do some repositioning and upload it for review...but i don't think i can put the english logo up next to the arabic one, because it's just a green bar... i mean a horizontal green bar hanging in white space next to the logo:D.. i dunno i'll try.
the site?... ah yes, the site. firstly... what happened to the homepage? i was sure you sorted out that annoying 2 pixel long scroll...:(
so was i. i must have fixed the one on my own pc and forgotten to do the one on brinkster:rolleyes:... anyway i think it's done now. please tell me if u're still getting a scroll.
pardicity3: yea i was thinking of random doodling as well :D maybe something like a clock or calendar or 'language tip' or something.
Skyzxy: actually it was all right on opera, so i assumed it would be fine on mozilla and didn't bother to check, until u pointed it out. wow what an embarrassing mess! :o
okay thanks so far.
i'll probably put up a couple more logo-position versions.
any other suggestions anyone?
