  1. Now, this is a reasonably well-made site, but I have a few complaints. First off, your header: the all-text header doesn't look very good, and the heart inside it just doesn't work well, considering how much it sticks out. Also, on your front page blocks with images, I really don't like the blue text over it. It's hard to read. I would go into more detail, but then I noticed that your login system doesn't let me log in.
    Oh, and my search pulled up a picture of a plant.
  2. Um... what was the point of that front page?
    Now, for a band with the name "Shroud of Bereavement", it sets up expectations for a very dark site. That doesn't mean it has to be that colorless though-try adding a bit of color here and there. On the downloads page, why is it in an iframe? Also, hosting your music on MySpace doesn't seem very professional. But then, neither does using an outside forum in a new window. For what you use, it would be much simpler to just write an integrated forum system.
    It's good, but not the best band site ever made.
  3. For one thing, your buttons look disabled-don't use grey borders and text unless you want to show that the button doesn't work! For another thing, you still need to integrate the site and the forums. They are two completely separate designs-not good planning.
  4. Slowly getting there...
    Just a quick comment here: don't bevel your menu buttons. That effect is so 1995. Second quick comment: your valid CSS button [a href=\"http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fkevona.co.uk%2F&usermedium=all\" target=\"_blank\"]is a lie.[/a]
  5. Service and repair? I thought you meant mowing lawns.
    First things first: Get rid of everything above your DTD. If you don't, then IE will go into quirks mode and screw up your site miserably. Second, dump the background and button colors-rather to just use the default buttons. I don't really like what you've done with your navigation. All buttons and no text links? What's up with that? Aside from that, this is an exceedingly simple app that should work for a simple company. Won't win any design awards though.
  6. Sorry about the link-fixed it.
    Out of curiosity, do you plan on including WYSIWYG or URL rewriting? Because those are two features I'd kill to see in a forum system. Maybe [a href=\"http://dojotoolkit.org/\" target=\"_blank\"]dojo[/a] could help you there.
    And as for the logo, why does it have to be a PNG? Next to no one supports that.
  7. Tables. TABLES. You designed your system using TABLES for layout. Now, for the forums posts, they're fine, but for everything else, why not use CSS?
    Now then, on to the review: lighten the backgrounds a little-they don't have enough contrast with the black text. In your breadcrumbs, increase the padding and remove the underlines. I don't like the orange border around grey boxes in your post view-stick with the dark grey borders instead. And PLEASE bring those font sizes up a bit. They look tiny. And when you log in, your tables that hold the images to create the angles at the top mess up.
    Now, one of the things that I don't like about fixed-width designs is the fact that they seem so small on my screen. As in, it takes up roughly a third of my screen, leaving you with a lot of blank, unused whitespace.
    Overall, a good design, but not great.

    Now, for funtionality: Going out on a limb here, but For your registration page, why did you put the labels on the right and your fields to the left? That goes against all common sense (Also, for accessibility, try making the labels <label> tags with the for attribute). While I was browsing around, I noticed that it said "Latest Post" and then showed the username and the time. Now the question is: what topic was it in? Sure, I could open up the forum and look, but where's the fun in that? I also ran your page through the w3c validation service. [a href=\"http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.generation-designs.co.uk%2Fosf%2Findex.php\" target=\"_blank\"]21 errors[/a] is a fairly large amount.

    All in all, this is a fair design and an okay forum system so far. It still needs some work though.
