  1. Hi and welcome.


    First impression is that it's quite white thus makes it a bit boring. Somehow I think you can bring it to life by using some light-grey gradient background(s).


    However, I like your logo and the name.


    The code is pretty good but you don't have to do this:

    <span style="font-weight: bold">Reliability and speed of access</span>


    ...when you can do this:


    <strong>Reliability and speed of access</strong>



    <p> </p>

    <p> </p>

    <p> </p>



    ...is not a good practice to space content.



    I am sure there is more but you are on the right track.



    Hi - I am sorry you don't like my white background - I like it a lot and find it makes the rest stand out. But I'll take it under consideration. If I were to go to a gradient it would probably be a colour, not grey...I do tend to rainbows and bright colours, maybe I have erred too far in the direction of restraint! :rolleyes:


    I am not sure where you got the <span style="font-weight: bold">Reliability and speed of access</span> because I don't have that text anywhere on my site.


    If you are referring to the fact that I have


    <span class="strong">DigitalInsite</span> and <span class="strong1">“good enough”</span> and so on, that is because they are actual classes in the CSS, and define more properties than just the weight, as follows:


    #tagline h2 .strong{ color: #333; font-family: "Century Gothic", Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size:22px; font-weight: bold; font-variant: small-caps;}


    #tagline h2 .strong1{ color: #333; font-family: "Century Gothic", Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif; font-weight: bold;}


    #tagline h2 .strong2{ color: #333; font: oblique bold small-caps "Century Gothic", Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;}


    I guess I should clean up my CSS and decide whether to go in shorthand or not! ;)


    You are quite right -

    <p> </p>

    <p> </p>

    <p> </p>

    used in a chunk like that, is not good practice - but as a placeholder for later addition of text I find it useful. In this case I did not add the text and should have taken it out.


    I'm glad you like my logo - I do too, even tough my marketing advisor tells me there are too many colors...LOL


    Any comments on the general content of the site, the layout, the pages etc?




  2. Hi - I am a new member of this forum, but I would very much like to hear what other members have to say about my site.

    My site

    It is a fairly new site, I keep adding to it through the blog and also new pages as I find them needed.

    I am using php includes for headers and footers.

    Known issues:

    2. The portfolio page has a dead link to one of the sites - that issue will be settled soon.
    3. The Chiropractor's site has been redesigned recently and I have to get a new screenshot up.
    4. Not all the pages are available in both languages - the translation is getting done ASAP but it does take time.


    If there are other issues I'd like to hear about them - I do not want to produce mediocre work, and am looking forward to constructive criticism.




  3. I had it set up perfectly for the past few months and just about an hour ago it wouldn't load and then the layout went everywhere. I checked in firefox and it look like it did before and I can't figure out why it looks it does in internet explorer. They looked identical for months up until an hour ago. Please check this and give advice!




    Hi - I have looked at it in both IE and Firefox, and they do look different - but it is hard to tell what it is supposed to look like with no reference. Is this supposed to be fixed or fluid? In Firefox the blue text areas fall off the image to the sides when I have my browser in fullscreen on a 23" monitor. Having looked at your code i agree that you have to write the wrapper tags correctly, they will not work unless you do.


    Write them as Andrea suggested - <div id="wrapper"> and then in your CSS try this -


    #wrapper {

    width:whatever your image width is; (this will keep the blue boxes from falling off the image in wider monitors/higher resolutions)


    margin-right:auto; (this will center it)



    Play with the CSS as much as you need to, to get it how you want it - but fix the wrapper tags first or none of it will work.


    Hope this helps,
