Hey, I was told by "Moodle" that this forum does site reviews! So I was wondering If My site could be reviewed.

Basically want to hear what you think of my sites design, coding and ease of use.
I built the whole structure of the site myself, I don't use any open source software like joomla or php fusion. I don't even use Cutenews, its all done by HTML / CSS.

the url is


Thanks. Jamie :)

I like the dark colours. It's very pleasing to the eye.
I also like the transparency on the navigation. However, the hover effects on the navigation do not fit the theme.

You have used tables. Tut, tut.
Alternate Text should be provided in case of the images not loading.

Good job, Jamie! :)

Good graphics. I'm not sure I like the white background in the content area. It kind of seems out of place. I like the transparency effects. One thing I didn't like was that your menu doesn't work with javascript disabled and it should.

The counter for the simmers online thing looks out of place.

@Aerospace ENG: How is the simmers online counter out of place? Its in with the rest of the site stats on the sidebar.

I think he means it reads a little odd, seeing as it's a verb used in cooking.

The white content background DOES look a little out of place, too. I messed about with it: changed #shcontent to 1px width and a background of #000, and #content to a background of #555. It looks better, try it out.

Also consider:
- adding a hover color for links
- taking off the blue border of links
- show an 'active' state for your dropdowns.
- provide backup fonts for 'Tahoma', even if it's just the generic 'sans-serif'.

FWIW, (Iam no expert designer), I agree both with Aero and CyanLight.

I think the number of visitors (or is it number of simmers online); one of them is missing a number and the number you have displayed shouldn't have such a blue border and it should be positioned elsewhere. apart from that, anything else I could see was already mentioned.

First impression:
Very nice looking site. Nice effects overall, very few criticisms. Great job.

The backround of the boxes goes past the rounded corners.

- Doesn't validate
- Tables for layout
