    So this is the first design I have created for the rentasite setup.

    What do you guys think of it?

    Ignore the fact its got the Joomla sample data in it. Its there on purpose so I can create the Joomla CSS.

    What do you like, what don't you like.

    Also I seem to be having an issue with the navigation at the top. In firefox when you scroll over the buttons they change but the menu expands slightly and im not sure why. In chrome... it doesnt show at all. just the text. Anyone have an idea why this may be?

    Please be aware that its connected to my localhost and not live hosted at the moment, this is for development purposes, and the IP Address may change in the next few days. If it does, bump the thread saying ip has changed and ill upload the latest.

    Ive tried Dyndns but its having issues connecting through for some reason. Will continue to look into it.

    Hope you guys like the new "Spa" site

    Ive changed the bg image to the one you suggested. What do you recon now?

    I dont quite understand what you mean about the 3ed3d3 bit, slightly confuddled there. :S
    I like that background much better. One thing - I'd like to see it on screen from top to bottom, right now it's a bit cut off. Is that because of the width?

    #3ed3d3 was a suggested colour for your CSS - I've found some better ones that are all shades in the same family and will go with the background:

    #b8dede for background-color in template.css, line 61

    #8ccfcf for background-color in template.css, line 66, and joomla.css, line 21.

    Try this in the file called template.css on line 61:

    #box01{
    width:300px;
    min-height:300px;
    height:auto;
    float:left;
    background-color:[COLOR=rgb(255, 0, 0)]#D3F3FE[/COLOR]; [S]#5CA2BF;[/S]/**#7D982E;**/
    margin-left:14px;
    padding:10px;
    border-radius:10px;
    /**box-shadow:1px 1px 10px #000;**/
    border:2px solid #75736E;border-bottom:2px solid #F1F0EE;border-right:2px solid #F1F0EE;
    }

    Actually it's on line 66, it's just that the div id starts on line 61.

    Now try in the file called joomla.css on line 21 :

    .cols-3 .column-1 h2{
    width:97%;
    background-color:[COLOR=rgb(255, 0, 0)]#a0d5d5; [/COLOR][S][COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 0)]#8CCFCF,[/COLOR][/S]
    color:#fff;
    text-decoration:none;
    padding:5px;
    border-radius:5px;
    text-shadow:1px 1px 1px #000;
    border:2px solid #75736E;
    border-bottom:2px solid #F1F0EE;
    border-right:2px solid #F1F0EE;
    /**box-shadow:4px 4px 10px #333;**/
    }

    and in the same file on line 26:

    .cols-3 .column-2 h2{
    width:97%;
    background-color:[COLOR=rgb(255, 0, 0)]#24757c;[/COLOR] [S]#135487;[/S]
    color:#FFF;
    text-decoration:none;
    padding:5px;
    border-radius:5px;
    text-shadow:1px 1px 1px #000;
    border:2px solid #75736E;
    border-bottom:2px solid #F1F0EE;
    border-right:2px solid #F1F0EE;/**box-shadow:4px 4px 10px #333;**/
    }

    and on Line 31:

    .cols-3 .column-3 h2{
    width:97%;
    background-color:[COLOR=rgb(255, 0, 0)]#24757c;[/COLOR][S]#2A4353;[/S]
    color:#FFF;
    text-decoration:none;
    padding:5px;
    border-radius:5px;
    text-shadow:1px 1px 1px #000;
    border:2px solid #75736E;
    border-bottom:2px solid #F1F0EE;
    border-right:2px solid #F1F0EE;/**box-shadow:4px 4px 10px #333;**/
    }

    These are written out here in long form, in the actual file they are in shorthand, all on one line, i.e. :

    .cols-3 .column-3 h2{width:97%;background-color:#2A4353;color:#fff;text-decoration:none;padding:5px;border-radius:5px;text-shadow:1px 1px 1px #000;border:2px solid #75736E;border-bottom:2px solid #F1F0EE;border-right:2px solid #F1F0EE;/**box-shadow:4px 4px 10px #333;**/}


    I'm testing these colours in three screens, and choosing the ones I like best with that background, so these are very subjective suggestions.

    I should warn you, I could play with colours all day ling...

    One more thing: now the logo doesn't show up as well on the background - why don't you try putting it in a translucent rounded rectangle, sort of matching the content area.

    Like one of these: spa logos
