    New site - comments and advice appreciated

    I'm in the process of putting a site together (my first) and have been using frontpage express. I've ordered Dreamweaver and I'm awaiting delivery.

    Could anyone have a look at the site and give me their opinion , please? It maybe looks a little amateurish, but I'm hoping to improve it with Dreamweaver, so any comments really appreciated.

    The site is:-

    http://www.onlineshoplist.co.uk/

    Also, I'd like to open the site for anyone with an online 'shop' (in the UK) to be able to add their site automaticaly. Will Dreamweaver handle this or do I need another database/form programme - or is it not possible?

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    You will have to use some scripting language (php, asp, javascript,...) to do this.
    Dreamweaver will not help you with this in the way your are expecting.

    It is just an editor who can generate some (crapy) code for you. The thinking and the implementation is all up to you

    Your site still needs a lot of work. Try using some different colors to make is look more professional.

    Also try making your text more readable. I was not encouraged in even stying in your site for more than 30 sec.

    Keep up the good work

    Thanks for that, Terrorke.

    I've made some alterations - is that better?

    Ahhhh.... another directory site..... well, it is a good practice ground for HTML/CSS skills.

    As Terrorke suggested, learn some coding instead of relying on software. I suggest you really take a stab at learning CSS -- just a few styles will improve the look of your page immensely.

    FYI
    * My screen resolution is set at 1680x1050
    * I'm accessing your site through a T1 line
    * I'm probably viewing it using Firefox (unless browser is specified)

    Thanks for that KDLA - looks like I've got a lot of reading to do before I can improve things!

    You really need a doctype.
