    Hello,

    I got a new design recently, moved my site from the PHP include() function to mySQL, and now I'd like some feedback. Most of the pages aren't on the server yet as the navigation bar was salvaged before the server was "forbidden". Now on a new host (hosted by the same guy but new host. He left the old host for personal reasons) with more features so I'm free to experiment.

    NOTE: Some Errors are caused by the coder, I'm just way too lazy to go searching and try to get the site to validate as, I've checked and found all the close.

    Any Feedback would be appreciated,

    Hmm... The headings for the menus are far too difficult to read. The text is too similar to the background color, combined with the fact that the blocks are too similar to the header color, giving the impression that they're part of the background. The divisions are evident, but the headings aren't.

    So your saying that I'd need to change the color of the text?

    I think he's saying you might consider changing the background color for the menu headings. I like the overall look of the site, however I think you should change the navigation to a more legible font. It works for the menu heading, but I think in the navigation it's too much.

    You obviously went for an "archaic, old book" type background, or something of the sort to explain the background color. I don't really fancy it, but that just might be me.

    I also would recommend changing the header images of the menu, as mentioned by others. The repetitious yellow, green and red becomes annoying and prevents one from easily reading which section leads to what.

    Uh. Overuse of the Harry P font by Phoenix Phonts? Overuse? Over...? Try using a different font for the menu bars running across and down. You might also consider narrowing your menu options to horizontal or vertical.

    And please don't use Courier font for "Got news? Send us a tip to us". It's a rather unprofessional font.

    Ah well. I guess Potter fans will all but overlook my misgivings and give your site the visits it desires. Slapdash, imho.

    Coding-wise- erps.
    The stylesheet add-on (read:hack) is giving me a nightmare. Integrate it into your main.css.
    Whoa, and I saw <center> and <table> and <td>. I'd use CSS to streamline things and make your site more accessible.

    Administrator for 2+ years? Really?

    I'm sorry, but better luck updating/redesigning the site.

    Yep. Started out on freeservers 2+ years ago. Oh. I see what you mean by that. Let me update the PHP code to call the mySQL DB! I don't think main.css is actually used anywhere, as it was from the original style create but than I found another one who didn't use graphics... I'll try new header images.
