    Layout, colors are very nice. I really like the testimonial page.
    I think a form to mail would be more useful in the contact page.

    It's pretty, no denying it.

    I find the circular...motion thing at the top a little irritating; I think thumbnails that DON'T move'd be a lot cooler.

    I'd also like to see the background lightened up a little bit: the grey seems a little dull.

    Hi abduraooft,

    You are right. I should add a contact form. But then I have been reeling with so much spam problems from these contact form mails. I have tried many captcha's. Spam make way around it and still send across. So presently, trying to work on that and then integrate.

    Thanx so much for your inputs.

    Regards,
    Sridhar

    Have you tried something like adding a field thats not to be filled out and hiding it with CSS (display:none) and if filled out exiting the your mail script? A lot of times bots will fill out the form completely. I'm not saying this is a fix all but it can be effective.
    Most of my questions/posts are fairly straightforward and simple. I post long verbose messages in an attempt to be thorough.

    I had a captcha, but then the bots were getting around it too.

    I think this is a good idea. Let me try it.
    Though, did you know that in IE, you cannot submit a form with a single field. We have used a hidden field with dummy value to get it working in IE.

    Thanks again.

    I don't think so. Could you please post an example?
    (how could this form become such a small one? - name, email, sub, comments ...)

    The portfolio hanging-by-a-thread thing looks bad, if you made that link conform with the rest I'd like it a lot more.

    Personally if I were looking to hire a freelancer to make a site, this would really catch my eye. It's a nice clean layout. I really liked that spinning thing in your banner. The one spinning what looked like layouts.

    Hi,

    I did add the form with the hidden field. No use. Since it isn't mandatory, the bot might be just leaving it blank.

    Thanx a lot.

    Check www.decidyn.com, when you try to download their product brochure from the products page, it asks you to enter your registered email address. Just the email address, no password.

    To add up to the mess, I use FF and the client (at decidyn) uses IE. He kept saying, the form isn't working and here I never faced the problem. We spent couple of days and then hit on a forum posting that pointed this out. We used a hidden field with some value in it and it started working in IE too.

    You can check it out. Just make a form with one field and submit it to see if you get the response.

    Regards,
    Sridhar

    I've copied that form(taken alone), and tested. Changed the onsubmit as
    Code:
    onsubmit="checkIfemailValid(document.login.email.value); return false;"
    .
    I couldn't see any difference in behavior of IE and FF

    Okay, do it this way in IE:

    1. Have a form with single field & submit btn. Do not put return false in your onSubmit, make the page to display the user entered field value.
    2. Enter any value in the field and hit the Enter key on your keyboard. Check if you get the entered value from the post.

    3. Now add a hidden field as
    Code:
    <input name="hidden" id="hidden" type="text" style="display:none;" />
    4. Enter any value in the first field and hit enter on your keyboard. It will work

    However, it works when you click on the submit btn with your mouse, wouldn't work with keyboard Enter

    Update on the captcha:
    Have you tried ReCaptcha. Its presently free. I have tried it on my site and seems to be working fine.
