    pagehomez.com review

    Hi All,

    I've recently created my first asp.net website and I am still learning ways to improve it. Could you guyz let me know if there's anything that feels odd or redundant?
    And if there's anything I can do to improve the experience.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    It is not immediately apparent what your site is about. The text in your features section is hard to read - need to work on contrast ratio.

    +1 for learning ASP.net...tough framework to learn.

    Your major issue is that you appear to be using a lot of the code that ASP.net generates by default, including using a lot of the properties that ASP.net assigns to its controls to make life easier (e.g. ForeColor). As a result, what you've created is dated code that will be difficult to work with down the road.

    The question I have is that it just looks like a way to organize bookmarks. It doesn't seem to offer anything new or original. Why would I use this over say setting up a Google account and synchronizing them?

    Others will have comments on the layout, so I'm not going to go there.

    Thanks for your response. I created this website to learn ASP.NET and to know how it works. I learnt JavaScript, some of jQuery, SQL Data Server and things like what is a good domain name, how to host a website and how to manage a database (and much more). At this point, my aim is not to create a useful website but to learn more about techniques used in ASP.NET and now I am going to learn ASP.NET MVC and I'll create something using MVC.

    I had asked my website to be reviewed so that I know the mistakes I am making. I don't want to repeat them for my next website

    Once again, thank you so much for spending time on my website. Additional comments will be welcomed.

    While there are some big issues with design, I will ignore it since your focus is to learn the programming aspect. With that in mind my first suggestion would be to make sure future sites are somewhat responsive. May not be an issue because of the purpose of this site and that it will more than likely be something that is used on desktops.

    Thanks for your response. I am already thinking of having a separate mobile site for future websites. Do you think this website is Not responsive enough i.e. is it taking too much time to load? Let me know.

    [EDIT: I know you're new here, but your link is already in the first post. That's all you need. Please read the forum rules. Thanks. TheGAME1264]

    Responsive in the sense Vapr_Arts referred to means "making it look good for cell phones, tablets, and other devices'. Your layout right now is only suited for desktops.

    As far as MVC goes, I'd probably avoid it. If you want to avoid bad habits, then you'll want to avoid MVC. Webforms (which is what you're using now) can also lead to bad habits but nowhere near on the level of MVC.

    I am sorry, I didn't get it. I thought MVC was the next step in learning ASP.NET. Isn't it?
    And what are the bad habits?
    It seems like you are against ASP.NET?

    Thats weird? I replied last night about what I meant by responsive.

    As far as what to learn next, if its anything to do with asp.net id listen to Game. He is one of the few people here that works in it.

    Also, you need to remove the link to your site that is in your fake signature. He removed it once, if you continue to have it you may get in a lil hot water.

    Vapr_Arts is right about the signature. Please don't include any more fake signatures. If/when you get to 100 posts, you can include a real one if you wish.

    MVC isn't really the next step in learning ASP.net. And I'm far from against ASP.net....as far as I know, I'm about the only staunch advocate on here for​ ASP.net. I'm a few weeks from dropping phase one of a website that utilizes web forms in a way that doesn't make it look like ASP.net at all. This is where the bad habits come into play...most ASP.net code samples and ideas generate dated, bloated, and or just plain incorrect code (e.g. tables for non-tabular data, excessive usage of Bootstrap for ASP.net MVC, inefficient usage of datasets and SQL Server calls, etc.) As left-brained a thinker as I am, I also recognize that I have to be right-brained as well and try to look at things from the designer and to some extent the user point of view. A lot of the ASP.net generated code does exactly the opposite. It's "engineered" when a hybrid approach is the most optimal approach.

    Basically, what you want to do is have a look at the code they generate, see whether or not it's an efficient use of code, keep the stuff that is, and remove the stuff that isn't. ASP.net is great as a framework if you can get past this, especially if you use one of the developer tools (e.g. the Visual Studio line) and the IntelliSense feature. You'll save a ton of time in the long run using it. But you need to know when/how to use it.
