    I don't like your colours, i also don't think your design is up to much either... sorry.

    You need to separate the categories, for example.

    Forums
    -- PHPBB
    -- VBulletin

    Full Site
    -- Blah

    etc

    I just feel that you have a lot of good templates there and your site is no where near that standard.

    hey shannonlp

    i think your site is great apart the 2 points already made. So that being said i think you could easily improve your color sceme just by changing one of the colors to a more vibrant color so there is a saturation contrast as well as a hue contrast.

    cheers,

    What colors do you think would be better? The Brown color is the one I was thinking of changing maybe to a brighter blue or should it be a sharper contract?

    Thanks for the replies.

    i think the blue and the grey back drop work great together. i agree... It's just the brown. a more intense blue would definitely work. all you need there is a color with more saturation so you have the contrast from the to pastel colors... whatever color you choose, you sould also use for all your links and highlights through out the site.

    hope this helps

    Huge improvment on the nav. Looks more corporate and pro. Also; I think you could do with some drop shadows in there, perhaps on the border of the page or even behind the navs... just a thought

    cheers mate well done!

    The top navigation bar only shows the top half of the words. I like the overall look of the site.

    Problem corrected. Thanks webfinity for pointing it out. Ended up being a bug with IE7. I won't admit I had the bug better to blame MS :-)
