    Hi everyone first post on this board.
    I am a programmer with a bit of graphic design knowledge (a dangerous thing). This is the first project i have worked with a designer for the graphics. I think he has nearly got it but there is something that isn't quite right. I am not really sure what to tell my designer to get it bang on.
    i would be grateful if anyone could tear it apart and tell me whats wrong. Don't mince words now give it to me.
    The site is for a muscular dystrophy charity, focusing on support for parents and the young boys it afflicts.
    there isn't much content and there might be a few errors please ignore that.

    thank you

    hey welcome to the board toby...

    i think you should ditch the splash screen and have the site in a normal window, because there is an increase in pop-up blockers (including one built in to AOL 8 now)

    overall i think it looks good, some nice graphic (and programming) work there

    good job

    I have some javascript that will sit in that splash screen and detect whether or not the client has a popup killer or not. If they do the site will open in a normal window.
    Can i ask what resolution your computer is set to

    AOL whats that?? never heard of it

    my computer's resolution is 800x600...

    AOL is America on Line... a (crappy) internet service provider who took microsoft to court recently so they could use microsoft technology i think.

    I really don't think you can detect a popup blocker. There are thousand of them, from plain window killers to script filtering proxy types. And javascript does not have access to process list on a computer to determiŽ ºšhat way.

    still, i think you should get rid of the splash, it is very plain and offers no function whatsoever

    Yes i need to speed the whole thing up. At the moment the whole drop down menu bar is generated from scratch every time you visit a page. I am going to change that so it writes the necessary code from the database to a file. this should speed things up a bit.
    Anyone else find it slow?

    I'll figure out the programming problems, it is really the design i am interested in.

    the splash screen is necessary to create the pop-up window and it will be jazzed up eventually. The client is very adement on having the site in a browser window with no menu bars/staus bars and at a size that fits in a 800x600 display
    I really like it too, a bit different from the norm

    Everything is getting shifted around for me because of a PHP Header error. I can't really give a good opinion of the design until that's fixed.

    Ah, nevermind... i clicked a link and now can see it. I'm not a big fan of iframes, but this is a pretty good looking monochromatic site. I like the graphic work you did Just needs some fine-tuning and you're there.
