    Chat

    Can some of you check my site out? The site is a Art site and I want some feedback on feel, look, quality, ect. I am still a rookie at this so keep that in mind the only coding that I used was html because I don't no any other codes. If you have the time could you check out all the links there is only about 10 pages at the most on the site.

    If you are an artist and you would like to send some art to the site it would be very helpful.

    The Link is Below...

    do get into the habit of designing with web standards too. Plus specify an encodeing. Notice I could not validate this using unicode or ascii, I had to use celtic before it would work.

    you musts needs try to organize the site and ditch some of the ads. it looks like a 3rd grader's collage (no offense.) i recommend netfirms.
    they use ftp and simply put an image at the top of the page, so no data is lost unless you use absolute positioning.

    best of luck.

    What content? There really wasn't much there. Also, what if users do not have the flash plugin installed? How do they navigate?

    i did not say i would use the menu in one of my sites, just that i like it (even tho they didnt make it)

    as for content i did not specify a type of content, quantity or quality, now its obviously not quantity as there is nothing there as you stated

    you have java not install and some people dont have it enabled, but they will know that some features on sites, such as chat will be unavailable through disabling it or not installing it

    Don't count on it. My Mom hasn't a clue about these things, and if something didn't work, she wouldn't know why, and she'd just get me to explain it to her. So you can't assume that people know some things aren't available to them, because chances are good they won't know what the heck is going on.

    ok true but at the end of the day you cannot make a site that absolutly any1 can view no matter what there settings (please dont prove me wrong lol), you have to try and make it accesable to as many as you can, so using js, java, flash, css, popups all in one site can be a bad idea, you could do what i would do either write something above it about if java not enabled wont work or even better detect whether it is or not

    my two cents

    after seeing the gods of these forums debate endlessly over what COULD go wrong in a website, especially one with javascript, may i suggest something.


    ***WARNING!!!***
    ***the following idea may cause some persons to laugh at the thought, but i can almost guarantee that someone will try it***
    i'm surprised someone hasn't asked for a code that would detect if javascript has been disabled. could be fun.

    Try a site that used valid, semantic markup, with CSS for layout. It'll read fine in anything that I can think of, especially if some accessibility issues have been taken care of.
