    I am creating a splash page for my site, www.twofortap.com. I need suggestions on what to do with all of the white space though. Here is the link to the splash:

    If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great!

    Thanks!

    I like the image you have there, I think the rest should tie in with the rest of the site. If you are using a cool background or something, throw it in there. If we could see the rest of the site it we may be able to make better suggestions.

    Also, splash pages are functionally useless and are another hurdle visitors must jump through to get to your site. Lots of members have opinions on splash pages, have a look through some of the posts here: [searchwdf]splash page[/searchwdf]

    Thanks for the reply. The only thing is that I haven't made any of the site yet. I just started with this.

    Gotcha. I'd try making a layout for the site first. I think it would be easier to make a splash page for a website than to make a website for a splash page. When you make the website's layout, you may find that the homepage has enough eyecandy on it that you don't need a splash page. Good luck

    I agree with spluff on this one. Unless you've got a really concrete idea of where you're going with the whole site, you should start in the main content first, and then work backwards to the splash.
