    Hiya, could anyone please tell me how I am doing, I am not the greatest designer and have been doing this completely through Windows Notepad.

    I think I am doing something wrong with the layout but I dont know what, so if it is OK, can I have some pointers.

    Thanks

    Matt

    PS - I will warn you now there is not much stuff on there at the moment.

    Visually, yes this site is a little lacking. The "Matt Stocker" logo looks like it was made at flaming text dot com. I don't understand why a forum, for what? Just to talk? You could use your blog for discussion. I also do not understand why you used a scrolling div? It places scroll bars that are not needed. Just let the content flow, without restricting the height. A scrolling text area inside a scrolling page usually doesn't work well visiually. And I am confused why there is a hidden iframe with http://www.forsalebyowner.com/fsbo-2.html as content? It's good you are interested in the forum, Firefox, blogs, etc. But these do not a website make. I just question the relevance of your content. That aside, what you need to do is come up with the following: a color scheme, pointed relevant content (example: I could not find a picture page you spoke of), useable links (i.e. your blog points to a 404 for the firefox toolbar info), a description of your site and why I should be interested in returning. I commend you on hand coding, that is the best way to get to the meat of webpages, keep it up!

    Thanks for the comments, i have never heard of the hidden iFrame so i will have to look around.

    And yes you caught me out, the image was from one of those template like sites, but i am making my own one soon.
