    Chronic youth; tutorial archive - site review

    I came up with this idea a while ago. It's a "tutorial community" you create tutorials in a text file with a site code for displaying and organization. I know these web site reviews are kind of annoying, sorry. If you find any errors or something please let me know.

    Needs color! All of the text and tables are all of the same shade of color. More color would definetely make it easier on the eyes, and easier to navigate.
    So:
    • Needs much more color variety (turned me away from site fast)
    • Make title more visible
    • left menus need something special done to them, to make them different than the right menus
    • Be nice to have some sort of <!doctype>
    • Good idea, itll be nice to see when its all done.

    i always thought people (atleast i do) more about content and functionability then the looks of the site. It's clean and fast. My god there is a lot of work in there.


    Thanks for your input.

    Well, nobody complained about the speed or quality, so consider that a good thing. If the only the people can complain about is the color, then I'd say you are doing good.

    I do, agree, the it's too flat color-wise. If you have a hard time finding a color to go with your greens, try www.colorschemer.com/online/

    Here's a quickie method I wrote for you to convert your HEX colors into RGB so you can use them at the colorschemer site
    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Hex to RGB</title>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    String.prototype.hexTOrgb = function()
    {
    	for ( var i = 0, colors = this.match( /\w\w/g ); ( colors[i] = parseInt( "0x" + colors[i] ) ); i++ ) {}
    	return colors.join(',');
    }
    
    </script>
    
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
    <form>
    hex<input type="text" name="hex" onchange="this.form.rgb.value = this.value.hexTOrgb()" />
    <br />
    rgb<input type="text" name="rgb" />
    </form>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    make note: colorschemer online only works with IE. I thought it was broken for a while.

    Some of the reasons why I said "confusing"

    As everybody said, it's very monochromatic; at least, I really recommend to change the color of the links, that gray-green makes no contrast at all with the background colors, also:

    when reading a tutorial, you can't see in wich page you are (the number still appears as a link), no next/prev buttons

    If you use the menu on the left to browse to PHP, you see the list of tutorials; you open a tutorial and how do you return to the list?

    while browsing, there are some fields in the top to sort the list, but the dropdown always shows "All tutorials" instead of the current category"

    Msg input box in "Shout Box" is for what?

    It could be a nice site, however
