    Hello

    Iím remaking the website for a local federation of a french political party and Iíd like some feedback as it is my first complete project (from scratch).

    Itís only a screenshot because I want to finish the design before starting the html and css.

    Itís in french so I can explain some of the stuff: on the left are the news, with the latest highlighted news first. As for the sidebar: first are the next local events, then other websites related to the party, then online press that they recommend people to read and then a link to political matters and subjects they wrote about.

    Hereís a version where you can see some of the rollover effects: http://k003.kiwi6.com/hotlink/q1te14...reen_hover.jpg

    Donít be afraid of being critical

    Thank you!

    I think its quite nice! The banner/logo looks neat with the green strike through.

    The only thing I would personally change is the pagination at the bottom of the page for your news entries..Looks a little un-aligned, id stick it far left as possible.

    GJ!

    Thank you

    The pagination is aligned with the main page, but maybe aligning it with the left content could be better, youíre right.

    NP, I just rekon that if you move the start of the pagination to the edge of the left box as it starts it will fit in a lot more =)

    I like it, except it would look a lot better without the brown footer...

    Dude...you're putting a political site on WordPress. Good thing you chose red for a color...that's like waving the blanket in front of the bull if you want to get attacked. I'd say it's a given that you would have someone attack you at some point, except that your party's political stance (je parle francais un peut) would actually prevent you from some of the more hardcore and uncivilized zealots out there, since there are some hardcore socialist and left-leaning members of society (case in point: the Occupy movements)...fortunately, being "gauche" means you won't have to deal with that as much as if you were "droite".

    This isn't to suggest that this doesn't exist within the right-wing faction, but the left tends to be more aggressive and less civilized in its approaches (and before anyone accuses me of being a right-winger, I'm a libertarian thinker, and I don't think either traditional "left" or "right" even exists anymore).

    Back to my point...don't use Wordpress. Don't. In fact, using anything open source given the fact that you're dealing with a hot-button topic (i.e. anything political) is going to get you into trouble. You're better off with a static HTML site than to mess with WP for this. I can't stress this enough.

    Other than that, I'm cool with your layout. I might go with the green from the header for the footer, but everything else makes sense.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    OK I'll try to do something about the footer, people seem to not like that color.

    TheGAME1264: your political opinion doesnít interest me. It might have if you had used some arguments, which you didnít; but even then itís a forum about design and I wonít talk about politics.

    EDIT: btw, I have since made some modification after some feedback I got:

    He is a moderator her and probably by the looks of his post and his websites he has a lot more experience with web design than most people here so I would strongly take his opinion on this.

    Also dont know if you meant it or not, but your response was a bit..well rude for someone giving his opinion. Although it might just be the way I read it so sorry if it is not.

    Never mind though, good luck with the site

    I saw he was a moderator, and I did value his opinion as such.
    I stated clearly that this part of my answer was about his political opinion on left-wing parties ó which I perceived as ruder than my answer and out of place.

    PS: if I misinterpreted what he said, Iíll take what I said back and forget about it happily.

    TBH, even your new version has that weird brown/gray background color that extends to the site. If you incorporate that footer into the body of the site, congratulations you've got yourself a site.

    he was teling you not to use WordPress because you're not making a blog and WP is very insecure, meaning anybody from the other "party" could fucxx0r your site :P
