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:


  1.  
  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.

 

Thanks,

AlphaMare

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>

 

This...

<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?

 

Thanks,

AlphaMare.

I found it on your Faqs page.

You need paragraph spacing.
