    I don't know if anyone remembers, but I asked to get my site critiqued here a month or so ago and I felt I got some helpful input... Sooooo I could use some more. I re-designed my site, and I'm looking for some more opinions/critiques.

    http://yaxnet.com

    The site is Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict, but fails CSS validation due to some transparency/opacity :hover elements. I've also made use of some PHP for the navigation, and lastly a little JavaScript.

    Also note: the index page right now looks very bare. I haven't decided 100% as to what to put on the page, so some ideas would be helpful. Thanks!.

    I like it, but I would reduce some of the glare on the Y logo. I would also provide some links to the websites in your portfolio.

    Thanks for the critique. The Portfolio definately needs some work in regards to displaying some specifics in regards to the sites/designs. As for the logo, I like the glare. I'll look into toning it down, though.


    Any other 'critiquers'?

    Some input would be nice.


    Thanks.

    Very nice ...

    On your home page I would put a few clients from your portfolio to show straight up the quality of your designs. Like a "Latest designs" or something like that.

    I'm wondering what your footer (that bottom menu) would look like outside that big box and maybe even in a box (like the content) in itself? I think that would make it look like it's not "really" part of the page but it's there in case your viewing a really long page ... you know? Just a suggestion.

    Otherwise it looks very nice.

    I took your advice and placed the links under the actual content area.

    I love PHP includes... They make changes like this sooo easy.


    As for the homepage -- That sounds like a good idea.

    Other critiques still welcome!

    Thanks again!

    Yeah ... that's better but have you tried creating a white box (like the one for the content) for the footer?

    Yeah, but I didn't like the way it turned out. Maybe if the top navigation was set off in a different 'block' it may look better with the footer links in their own 'block', but that's not the case. I dunno -- I like the way it turned out though with the links under.

    Does anybody see any issues with the display on my website?

    I was at a customers house yesterday and the content on the left was below the image on the right leaving a big white-space rather than being right next to it.

    If anybody is seeing this, please let me know.

    It was using Firefox 1.0 and Windows XP Home Edition.

    Thanks.
