    So what do you think? This is what i have spent the past few days doing.. any better? Content isn't there yet: this weekend's task.

    I'm not sure on the font, so that may be altered. The logo at the top is temporary.

    But i'm just after general layout, ease of use...that sort of things. I think i need to add styles to certain areas in text. Is this better than before?

    I have two questions as well that i wonder if someone could help with...

    How can i get searchbots to crawl all of my site, due to the need for having the cookie selecter? Is there a way that you can have cookie detection in the form of a drop down box (pop up) box that allows the user to select his/her country then re-direct them, but starting at the main site, so that robots would not be faced with the problem of a pretty blank opening page?

    Secondly: whats the best way to go about making a search script. Currently the search works only in areas that you are in i.e. cd reviews/news... that sort of thing. Is it hard to add a drop down box and select the area of the site you want to search?

    Thanks

    Firstly, what is the difference between the countries? Is diferent content displayed or what?

    Have you written the site in a server-side language? Do you have it hooked up to a DB? If so, the search function will only be as good as the sql query you write. So you can search all the content of the site, if it all comes from the DB.

    If its static html, I suggest adding a google search to your site. :classic:

    Yeah the content is different. News is region specific.

    It's been written using a program called "word press", and it stores all information in a database. Each region of the site (cd reviews, interviews, news etc) have their own tables.

    Well busted managed to make it big so I think mice can move mountains!

    The only thing I don't like about the site is the dark green with orange.
    But I like the banner (apart from the green)
