  1. Very nice design, first of all. I have a couple of suggestions.


    For that nav to work effectively as tabs (as I'm assuming you are), I think it'll be best if you specified where the user is in terms of the tabs. For example, if I'm at the homepage, the tab "Home" should be highlighted. That's my only complaint so far. Again, nice job!

  2. Looks nice and clean, but quite basic.


    I would lose the forum too as I cant understand who would use it?


    I just put the forums there just as a test. I'll get rid of it soon.


    Just a suggestion , but the first thing that jumped out at me was how wide your pages are.

    I know your pages are liquid and thats the point, but from a reader's perspective it is easier to read if it has generous left-right padding. Another thing you can do is float a big image right and have the text on the left side.

    Everyone likes to see pictures, and it make the text length shorter, more concise and therefore, much easier to read.


    It's scientifically more strenuous to have your eyes move that far from left to right. Think of how newspapers are layed out.


    HOpe this helps


    Oh yeah, I have a 22" widescreen, so obviously, this exemplifies the problem.


    Ok, I'll put more padding in. As for the pictures, how big do you think the screenshots of the websites in my portfolio should be? If it's too big (as it is right now), I'll have to put a lot of text on the right side to make the page look good.


    Thanks everyone for their opinions. If you  have any more opinions, please feel free to say them. I'm looking to improving my site (and others) constantly.

  3. http://www.johnthefreelancer.com/


    I aimed for simplicity while giving the user maximized info about me and my freelance services. Please let me know if something does not display correctly for you (although I have tested my website in 5 different browsers in Vista - Firefox, IE 7, Opera, Safari, Netscape). If you would like to suggest more content (especially for the "about" section - I definately need more in there, but I have no idea what else to put), please feel free to do so. It'll be great also if you could suggest what the colors for the text in the forum section should be.

  4. I need help with this query:


    SELECT polls. * , poll_options. *
    FROM polls, poll_options
    LEFT JOIN poll_votes ON polls.poll_id = poll_votes.poll_id
    WHERE polls.poll_id =1
    AND poll_options.poll_id = polls.poll_d


    Here's my database structure for the three tables:


    -- Table structure for table `polls`
    CREATE TABLE `polls` (
      `poll_id` mediumint(5) NOT NULL auto_increment,
      `poll_question` varchar(200) NOT NULL,
      `poll_start` int(11) NOT NULL,
      `poll_end` int(11) NOT NULL,
      `poll_type` tinyint(1) NOT NULL default '1',
      PRIMARY KEY  (`poll_id`),
      KEY `poll_start` (`poll_start`,`poll_end`)
    -- --------------------------------------------------------
    -- Table structure for table `poll_options`
    CREATE TABLE `poll_options` (
      `option_id` mediumint(5) NOT NULL,
      `poll_id` mediumint(5) NOT NULL,
      `option_name` varchar(200) NOT NULL,
      KEY `option_id` (`option_id`,`poll_id`)
    -- --------------------------------------------------------
    -- Table structure for table `poll_votes`
    CREATE TABLE `poll_votes` (
      `vote_id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
      `poll_id` mediumint(5) NOT NULL,
      `option_id` mediumint(5) NOT NULL,
      `vote_user` int(11) NOT NULL,
      KEY `vote_id` (`vote_id`,`poll_id`,`option_id`,`vote_user`)


    MySQL returns with an error:

    #1054 - Unknown column 'polls.poll_id' in 'on clause'


    Any help will be appreciated.
