    Only the homepage, photos, music, movies, and wallpaper pages have been recoded/redesigned so far. The other pages still use the old template and stylesheet.

    My personal website now has much leaner/cleaner HTML code. At one point, the complete recoded homepage was 64 lines of code, when the old homepage was 664.

    The only issue I find now with adding content, is that many of the external scripts (for statistics tracking, etc.) include HTML code that is NOT valid. I don't know what to do when this happens. Either I can take out the important JavaScripts, or do some type of "hack" to make them valid.

    What do you think?

    Thanks a lot for your helpful comments and suggestions! I really appreciate them! :classic:

    Looks good but there are a few things that irk me in particular:

    1. That box in the top right corner with the site map links and what not. It looks a little out of place there. Stuff like that is usually resigned to the footer.

    2. The navigation links and the page title below don't go well together. Maybe a border inbetween would help. That's personal preference mind you, so ignore if you want.

    3. The hover style changes. It's a bit annoying moving across the page and having a load of bars flash at you as your cursor crosses them. For links I personally suggest you display them as blocks (CSS: [minicode]display: block[/minicode]) so the link can be clicked without hovering over the text. You need a CSS hack for it to work in IE though, I do believe. I'll fetch that when I've done. Maybe remove the hover from divs that contain just plain text too. It suggests clicking on them does something, when they're really inactive.

    4. Finally, links. They're all underlined from the start, and hovering over them gives the links a background colour. Maybe you could keep the normal link text the colour it is, and have it underline on hover? Makes large blocks of text look tidier when it's not filled with underlined words. That relates to the hovering divs too - what's the point in having the two together?

    As I say most of that is personal and you don't need to take it into heart. Then again, it's all opinion, no?

    It's improved though. I like it better than the last design.

    EDIT: The CSS hack I mentioned...

    [minicode]html>body #class li a { width: auto; }[/minicode]

    Replace #class with the name of your unordered list (assuming you used an unordered list).

    Oh, sorry, didn't see that you posted a new thread. This looks good, but not really for a photographer. It reminds me of a tech website.

    Actually, Geoff Myers Photography and GeoffMyers.net are two different sites. GeoffMyers.net is my all-around site (which includes a page on my photography), and Geoff Myers Photography is just a small, simple site that will eventually replace that page.
