    Hi guys,

    Just finished working on [one of] my latest sites, for a mobile disco company me and a mate run. Still some content to go in but I wanted some criticism first!

    A couple of things:

    1. I know it looks like KaZaA. It wasn't intentional, but looking at it now it most definately does. Tough. Have a nice day.

    2. There's a problem viewing the site in FireBird [and maybe others, haven't checked them all yet]. Basically, if you have a smaller resolution my [beautifully crafted] target gets cut in half because the nav doesn't move across like it does in IE - presumabely it's linked to a column in the first row that IE doesn't give about. Any ideas how to fix this? :bored:

    3. No, it's not the final URl. I'm still saving the pennies to buy one

    Anyhoo, what do you guys think?
    MC˛ Discos

    TIA,

    Ollie.

    its a nice looking web site which can be a little over simple in areas..
    One thing i think you should consider is to add an attractive looking image on the homepage that promotes your business or the services which you provide instead of just a couple lines of intro text..
    Also, it would pay to add a simple email form on your contact page.Try to make it as easy as possible for potential customers to get in contact with you.

    So far its looking good!

    Will take that into consideration - haven't got any photos at the moment but we've got a gig in a few weeks time so i'll take my camera along.

    On the contact page, read the blurb on e-mail, theres a link to it in there. If it's not there, try hitting Ctrl - F5 to clear your cache.

    PS, I know some of the pages are still dead - I'm still working on them and can't be bothered to do a pweddy under construction page.

    OK, one more thing I need help with.

    I want to create a page with a 'profile' or bio for the DJs. I'm trying to learn a bit of PHP as i go along, and for no real reason other than to learn, I want to make a page called profile.php and then use variables in the url to determine who's profile gets shown.

    So, here's the code that I've got so far, which I've basically got by looking at the code fom pages other people have made and by trying things.

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $who
    =$HTTP_GET_VARS[who];
    if(
    $who=="stu")
    {
    include(
    stu.txt);
    }
    else {
    if(
    $who=="ollie")
    {
    include(
    ollie.txt);
    }
    }
    else
    {
    echo 
    "Sorry, this person does not exist."
    }
    ?>
    Suprise suprise.. it doesn't work. But, the million pound question here, why? I've tried a few things and none of them work. I didn't expect them to, but to be blunt, I can't see what's missing.

    Thanks to anyone who can help.

    I looked at your site in Firebird, and on a large resolution, your banner looked fine once I lowered the text size a notch or two. One way to fix this problem would be to define your text size using CSS.

    As far as the site goes, the banner is cool and the design is cool. However, the text is all laid in there very plainly, simply spanning the entire page. Inserting some columns or formatting the text in a slightly fancier way may spruce up the page.

    I thought I already had? lol

    .generaltext {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 12px;
    color: #333333;
    padding: 4px;
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: center center;
