[/quote] You mean that says 'PHPFreaks' on it, right? ;) I'll take that under advisement. Thanks for the help!

So, as for that link to a forum, you seem to have forgotten to post it.
  3. I really don't like the font choice. It's both too big and too curly. Rule of thumb I've learned: Serif fonts never go over well. Meanwhile, your menu system could use some work. It's a huge grey block-kind of ugly, really. As for your classifieds, it may be a good idea to take them and make them moderator-approved before posting them.
  4. Nah. I think that I'll stick with what I know-editing in Photoshop. Thanks for the offer though. So, aside from the light blue text, and the google ads, does it look good? Oh, and I fixed the rollover menu like you suggested. You're right-it does look a lot better now. Once the menu expands a little though, I probably will make it a rollover again.
  5. Well, at the moment, this is the "mess-around" stage of the site. Once it's done, I'll see what I can do about paying. Unfortunately though, I still need to get some money for that. That's why I need the adverts-without them, I basically don't have the ability to put it up. Also, none of these images are resized-they're just badly compressed.
  6. The ads aren't really my choice here. It's have ads or no hosting. As for expanding the menu, you're right-I probably should. That was really more of an experiment in CSS rollovers that I never got around to getting rid of. Now, the light blue against the white, that doesn't really occur anywhere outside of the quotes-I probably should fix that. But for the borders too? And as for image filesize, I'll try optimizing them some more. Just something to keep in mind: This is only step 1 of a much larger project.
  7. I had a little spare time so I decided to make a blog. Still working on why. Here's the link: [a href=\"http://mobblog.byethost2.com/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://mobblog.byethost2.com/[/a] Just something I felt like doing. No idea why. None of the links work yet, so I'll have to work on that. Aside from that, any comments? And yes, I know that it doesn't validate. Personally, I blame the fact that my blog posts don't have valid XHTML 1.1 in them-whoops. Thankfully, this is just a stopgap measure until the real site is complete. Not sure when that happens...
  8. I have to agree with what he said. The navigation is simply stupid, because it makes your site hard to read without whiplash.
  9. Use the Dreamweaver Update Form option to take care of that. Just make the page password-protected, and get the user ID from the session ID, or the cookie you use to edit it.
  10. Greater move towards AJAX tutorials? More forums-based interaction? I dunno, maybe no one really wants to write tutorials anymore.
  11. Nothing at all, aside from a different background color. You still really need to integrate the forum and the site though.
  12. [list][*]Your sidebar is way too thick[*]Don't use that gradient on your sidebar-it looks bad[*]Make the forums, downloads, and the site more unified; consider a non-forum based support system, maybe using tickets and replies?[*]Fix your header so that you have more separation between the top and bottom[*]On your news headers, make them stretch a bigger amount of the screen for longer titles support[*]Give your topic icons a border and a title, making it clearer what that article is about[/list]Just my 6 cents.
  13. Just a word of advice: Fix your first site and then finish your second. Also, if it's a sister site, create a link bar at the top so you can make a network.
  14. Did you copy the Javascript at the top of the document? Dreamweaver is a huge fan of putting code at the top of the page.
  15. Well, that rules out VBulletin and Invision, so in this case, I'll have to go with PHPBB. Easy templating, lots of mods and supports, and easy integration. However, one thing to keep in mind is the whole list of security bugs that exists within the code. If that doesn't worry you overmuch, then PHPBB is definitely the way to go on this.
  16. The problem is that any database you find on the web is almost always going to be closed to outside contact, making it so that you can only affect it if you are on the same local server. You can find some remote MySQL hosts, but it's hard to do, and it'll take some searching.

  18. There's no "Both" mode, just a "Split" mode that opens a separate code menu at the top.
  19. No, this would make it thinner. What you would do is make it exactly the most common screen width on the internet, so that 800*600 users won't have to scroll the the right to read it all.
  20. Well, fixed-width means that your site has a certain width, and doesn't get any wider, right? So you would want to edit that main content table's width to 800 pixels, to make sure that you don't alienate anyone who runs that resolution. Which, as it turns out, is most of the web.
  21. It's an interesting idea, to be sure. I like it myself, and think that it is fairly well-designed. I don't like the darkness of the side menu though-you need to fix that. Also, I don't like the way that you have it be fixed-width, and worse yet, have it fixed-width at just above 800*600. Also, with your articles and rankings, it might be a good idea to put a level of quality for all of your articles, and separate humour articles from serious articles. Personally, I would rather not have a joke about Bush right next to an update on the whereabouts of bin Laden.
  22. <a href="linkhere" onclick="history.back()">Back</link>
  23. You actually do it in Javascript. <input type="button" value="Back" onclick="history.back()">
  24. It does indeed have good style. However, at the top, the links flicker when I hover on them. What's up with that?
  25. Most servers don't allow access to databases from the outside of their servers. This is just another case of that.
