  1. It's a template, though; aside from a very nice custom header, and unless this is your template, then it is against forum rules.
  2. It's just, look at them; the white thing at the top makes them look like a glass ball of some kind-do you see what I mean by that? Look at how light reflects off of a marble, for example-that's what you've made it look like.
  3. Maybe so, but here's the thing: the buttons have this glossy, glassy, three-dimensional look to them that is out of place with the rest of the graphics in the design. As for the multiple posts thing, one is small, but two feels sparse; three might work better. Finally, you should take the byline and move it to the left-it seems lonely off the right like that.
  4. They still don't fit-the buttons have a glossy look to them, a glossy look that doesn't really fit the rest of the site. Also, you really should put more then just one article per page-it makes for slow browsing.
  5. It's the subscribe boxes-they don't match the feel of the rest of the site. Maybe that's the problem?
  6. Well, I managed to fix the example page by floating both elements. Maybe that would help?
  7. Hmm... Check to see if you have valid HTML and CSS, as well as a Doctype. Fix any errors, and if that doesn't help, just increase the height of the div.

    IE problem

    This is one of those questions where samples just don't help that much. Inheritance properties can make everything so much more muddled that it can screw things up very far down the line. Maybe the margin-left property is pulling it off the page?
  9. Remove altogether, probably. Aside from that, this is a pretty slick design.
  10. Look, I'm sorry that I was rude; I didn't intend to come off as sounding that rude, just a little overly sarcastic. But my points do stand; while I may not have stated them in the most tactful manner, but that doesn't change my opinion that you really do need to do a whole let of rethinking about many parts of your site.
  11. Very nice. The only things that kinda bug me about this design are the strong black glow effects on the three big buttons below the "What is your learning curve" area and the font for "latest happenings", which seems out of place.
  12. Calm down, please. All right now, time to clear things up; YES the web crawler thing is impressive; but that doesn't really pardon all the things that are frankly fairly wrong. For example, the link thing? That falls under the category of "Things that are easily avoided"; truncate the string or something. Look, the basic idea is, what you have isn't new in any way, shape, or form. It's tired and done better by many other people. The basic idea here is to at least try and bring in something new, instead of just the same old things, or, to reinvent the wheel into something better.
  13. Whoa. That is one ugly site. And not google-ugly, more like "Badly compressed logo with unclear connotations" and "blatant rip-off of Google's layout without even trying something different" and "What the !&$@ is this?" ugly. Not to mention the useless "Show/Hide News" button and the non-functioning links. Go back to the drawing board, dude; if you plan to make a search engine, at least try and make something new out of it instead of looking like Yet Another Google Clonetm.
  14. It just doesn't seem very consistent is all. Below the header, you have some funky clamshell patterns, and there's this one weird glass-like effect at the top, and then there's this little guy peeking out of the corner... it just looks mish-mashed together almost randomly. This does demonstrate some solid graphics design ability, but your graphics are just all over the map in terms of style.
  15. 404 Not Found. It's actually on the main page. That's better-much less cluttered then the first version. Maybe if you switched the left and right columns around so that the big picture comes first?
  16. Right there that navigation is a lot better then the original one. It's more uniform and clearer to use-very nice!
  17. Attached: hastily scribbled comments. Good luck reading them. As for the menu, you could easily rework it into a series of short buttons that illustrate key areas (About, Press, Contact, For Kids, Products, etc.(For that matter, you could even consolidate press and contact, given the content on the press page)) that would help it look a lot less cluttered. As for the left menu, it is a bit of a "Huh?" section, one that leaves your reader unclear on just what you are trying to do. Oh, and your under construction image looks kinda funky; it's the character from the front page, in the same pose, holding some strangely rendered roadblocks? The art styles kinda clash there.

  18. It's a semantics thing. Tables are really inflexible for layout (to move a left column to the right, you have to recode the page, for example), and tables are meant for displaying data; to create a layout table is basically to misuse HTML code.
  19. You are on the right track with the bright colors and heavy contrast, but the site itself looks kinda "meh". I'm looking at it, and I see an unclear menu, two separate top menus and no real flow to the page. In bits, the content blocks are stuck together, and in other places there is some big black spacing, which looks confusing. For a site like this, you'll want to really direct the eye to the big sidebar, but it is in competition with so many warm colors around the page that it just gets drowned out. This should really be reorganized, and the navigation needs to be cleaned up badly.
  20. Okay. Now let's imagine for a crazy moment that there are more browsers then that on the web? What about libraries or workplaces where IE7 won't arrive for a long time? Unless you have a very, very specific crowd in mind, you should expect those kinds of visitors.
  21. - Get some graphics in there! What you have now is completely text. - Put members on a different page, maybe give each member an assigned role of some kind (medic, sniper, assault, etc.). - For that matter, you should separate a lot of the things onto their own pages so that the opening interface isn't quite as confusing for first-time users. - Oh, and the upload file page timed out
  22. Just flip the username with the password and it works. The design has a pretty header, and the tools are clear enough to use. For what you plan to use, it's basic but probably effective.
  23. Wrong forum, FYI. Try freelancing, and give a little more detail.
  24. Not bad. It's very blue, compared to the darker shades used elsewhere, and the black text is kinda hard to read; but the effect it nice.
