  • New website! Need Review and Helpful hints!

    Sup everyone, I'm new to codingforum.net so I just thought I'd say wassup. But anyways I've finished my new interface/layout for my new graphics site but I got the layout all up and running and than....boom...what am I gona do next! So I need some tips, hints, ideas, on what to do with my navigation bar (it just doesn't fit in I don't think) and some help with PHP navigation and scripts! Well contribute whatever info you can! Thanks for you guy's help!

        preloader takes far too long, get rid of it or atleast have a link to the main page for ppl that are getting bored watching a boring blue line fill the black line

        Are people meant to be able to read the text on your buttons or is it a vision test, like at the optitions?

        Lighten your main menu text too, it's too dark against your background

        And now the code side...

        Add a doctype

        Join your css together

        Add a chartype

        Don't mix upper and lowercase tags together

        Use css as much as you can, you can do without the nonsense in your body tag easily

        Don't use tables for presentation and layouts

        Your php isn't working

        PHP Code:
        <?php
        if(isset($default))
        include(
        "$default.html");
        else
        include(
        "default.html");
        ?>
        Guess its not enabled

          I agree with Nightfire , if you're going to use graphic text(which is another issue) it should be larger - It's pretty small and I can't resize it to see better.

            That site layout is *****in'. Anyway, everything is perfect execpt the menu. It's dead, the background of each link needs to light up on mouse over. like on this site:

            P.S nothing wrong with a tabular layout....css has taken over now and its just tabular layouts are going out of date. Ill still use them , see if i care

              There's loads of things wrong with tabular layout, just because you don't know any different doesn't mean that the wrong way is right

                Ok DsgnrsTLZAdmin, I'll tell you why I think that this is an example of why not to use tabular layout. (No offence DragonTGK, I actually really like the colour scheme of your site ).
                The layout alone, with absolutely no content, and without the images included, is 16Kb. That's a hell of a lot of code just for layout.

                "Yeah but your site's got 300+ lines of CSS, there's no difference."

                Ah yes, but the same css file is being used each time the page (or any page containing the same layout) displays. Thankyou cache Every page of DragonTGK's site will have to add the 16Kb again on top of any new content that is being loaded. It also means that his host is serving 16Kb more than needed with every refresh, costing you bandwidth. (If your site gets the traffic you hope for).
                I would mention how much a text reader would choke on it, but the tiny "images as text" headers defeat the purpose.

                DragonTGK: none of the above was meant as an attack on you or your skills; you merely provided an example.

                  ok, im not that good with html and stuff.. so I really don't no an alternative to the tabluar layout.. photoshop put it all together for me but also... what i'm going for is a total different navigation menu, something like with bottons and when you move your mouse over them another menu popups beside it but it doesn't interfere with ur interface, its like on top of it. Anyone no were I could get a script for something like that?

                    PS: the little navigational buttons on the top are purely ment for an alternative, you should be able to go everywhere from the side menu.

                      Try Brothercake's Ultimate Drop Down Menu . It's the bomb.

                          All show and no substance. You have 8 seconds to capture attention of an average (dial-up) user. The only reflex your "Loading Bar" envokes is reaching for the "Back" button.
                          Learn HTML and CSS.
                          Then create content.
                          Then dress it up.

                            I agree, whilst the site's graphics look really good, I did have to get my glasses to read everything. Im not sure how you would put your content into that site though unless you had a light grey or grey-green as background with black text. the squares don't do much. but yeah the design is nice. IF you insist on the loading bar, then at least fit it in with your colour scheme.
