    [SOLVED] looking for feedback on my new website


    This is the first site I have created. Two weeks ago I knew absolutely nothing about html, I just finished it up today and feel a lot more confident. I really enjoy this, more than I thought I would at first.

    I am asking for feedback on the site: layout, appearance, ease of navigation, how everything lines up in your browser, etc. Help me improve it.

    Thanks

    So far so great. All you need (?) to learn is whatever language lets you make "Extras" a drop-down menu. But for someone with two weeks' experience of HTML, it looks good, layout and everything.

    I like it - nice clean design.

    However, your first paragraph under "Our Ministry" on the about.html page is being overwritten in my browser (Firefox 1.0.6) by something. I am also having trouble copying it to see what is happening. Your html code looks okay, but you have a paragraph containing only a "" which may be causing the problem.

    I will take a closer look at it.

    its fast and simple. i suggest to center it since the header is not exact with width of (your resolution).

    For the drop-down menu, you could try PHP. The site itself looks OK, but I agree that you should center everything, makes it look nicer. I tried out a couple of other browsers (and no, not IE), in Konqueror it looks fine (same as in firefox), in Dillo it looks a bit weird (some things are not aligned as they should be) and it's nearly navigatable in links

    Also, on all of your "other" pages, there is no "Home" reference, to allow a viewer to get back to your index.html page.

    great, thanks for the screenshot, that was very helpful. I think it should be fixed now, but would you mind taking another quick look for me?

    I have wanted to center the contents of the page, but I have been unable to do this succesfully so far. Should I try to use <div align="center">?


    And celticgeek, thanks for noticing the lack of a "home" button, I had the header linked to /index.html, but I don't think that's intuitive enough. I will have to rethink the /index.html link.



    The drop down menu is a doosey. I don't want to think of how many hours I have tried to make something work. The extras page is pretty cheesy and I want to do it properly once I learn how. php you say? I will look into that. I would think I should be able to find an applet to work, but perhaps php offers a simpler solution.

    If you don't have a blog yet, I wouldn't put it under extras as "coming soon"--I'd just leave it out. Maybe it's just me, but I hate clicking on something only to have it lead to nowhere.
