    Recently we redisgned our website. Something has gone terrible wrong and we have been unable to fix the problems.

    At the current moment users are getting lost and leaving before finding the content they came for.

    Also, Some of our fil sizes have gotten too large. Like Hansel and Gretel we are lost in the woods without out being able to find our bread crumbs.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Funny you should mention breadcrumbs, because that's exactly what your site needs!

    First off: Don't shove the breadcrumb in the far right hand corner and reverse the order. It's counter-intuitive. Secondly, put a spacer (like >) between breadcrumb items.

    Also, make your breadcrumbs useful. A page like this: http://www.knowyourcasino.com/california.php should have a breadcrumb of "Home > Casinos By State > California Casinos"

    Another useful thing would be highlighting navigation. When a user clicks on "Casinos by state" on the left, highlight that item somehow so it stands out and the user knows where they are.

    Another useful tip is to organize your left nav. Right now, headings are centered and links are left-aligned, giving the impression that the headings are in fact sub-items of the nav above them! You should put headings left aligned, and indent the nav items below them.

    Another useful tip is to duplicate common navigation items in the top right of the page, and bottom of the page. Common places like home, contact, etc.

    It's good that you're thinking in terms of users navigating your site, but you've got a ways to go.

    Are you a web designer or an online casino owner who is trying to redesign his site?

    I am a web designer running this site for a client. They have long term goals, but I would like to make the best site possible.
