That's the problem with frameworks and libraries. You have to know the project ahead of time and know the capabilities of the system. If you need to deviate from it in any way, it gets messy.
I remember trying Ruby on Rails. It's quite terrible, in my opinion. It makes easy stuff easier and slightly complicated to hard stuff near impossible. Of course, if you're a developer trying to learn RonR, you already know how to do the easy stuff by hand.

I reckon you need to update the design more than the code. Well, at least as well as the code. Make text larger. Try to cram a little less information into the page. More white space. Change those horrible blue-underlined links. Give it more bold colours.
That's good advice, NottRobin.
