    Review!?

    What do you think?

    I am have some validation problems with the css, otherwise it works how I wan't it. In FF the Wallpapers have a mouse over effect, in IE they don't, and that is the only difference between the two I think you will see.

    Think about usability - when a user enters your site, where do they look? How long are they going to take to get to what they want to on the site?

    I'm quite tired at the mo, and when I looked at the index page, I couldn't really be bothered to read the blurb at the top, nor your message on this thread (nothing against you! just tired!), and so when I got on to your site, I hadn't really got a clue what it was for. My focus then went to the navbar at the top, and sure, it quickly made me realise that this site was for wallpaper.

    I know it sounds silly, but how about making the site exude wallpaper from the home page onwards. Give some wallpaper images on this page - tempt people to click through to more. Also, make the blurb on the home page more 'bitesize' - either reduce the width; make it look more interesting; or get rid of it altogether - is it really necessary?

    Anyway, site does look nice, I'm just being overly critical for this review!

    Could you darken the navigation links just a little? There's not much contrast between their color and the background color.

    Are these backgrounds created by you? If so, I'd definitely add a credit line on the homepage.

    You might consider fixing up these backgrounds for widescreens, too, since they're becoming pretty popular. I think my home laptop's res. is 1200x800, but not sure.

    BTW - What's the reference to "Got Old?" You're just a whipper-snapper!

    Hi -
    It has a nice basic layout structure and color scheme.
    Must agree that you need to have more contrast for
    readability and more 'in your face' as to what the site
    is for/about.

    It would help to change the <title> to:
    Dtop - Free Wallpapers and Screensavers Site.

    I'd also suggest reversing the locations of the site links and
    main W-paper/S-saver links - since there's more room on the
    left for the longer listings.

    Good luck,
    El

    good, but a little to plain color-wise.

    I saw it on a shirt at "Spencers Gifts" in the mall



    I moved the links and darkened them.

    in making widescreen resolution images, do any of you know what the most common resolutions are?

    Any ways now what do you think?

    Info. on resolutions: http://www.hitmill.com/html/screen.html

    I'm not sure what happened between version A and B, but in IE, the navigation is cut off on the left side. (screenshot attached)

    I found: 2560 x 1600, 1920 x 1200, and 1680 x 1050
    Out of those, which is more common?

    Don't know -- you might take a poll. I only use my widescreen at home, and haven't had it too long. I just know that most of HPs laptops come with this option.

    Hi -
    Yeah, it's getting there.
    Even w/ my preferred screen resolution, you have more room to play with.
    The 3 header links you might want to try inline instead of block, so they'll
    take up less room & merge better w/ the header.
    The header blue could be repeated somewhere - maybe your intro. text?
    [Or have an actual h# there somewhere w/ your 'main line' before the text...]

    Keep going!

    Alright, Some revisions were made, and now we have something a little different.

    Something odd happens when I first hover over a nav link. The image on the right moves down maybe 5-10px and stays there until the page is reloaded. Fx 1.07

    Hmm, when I view it in FireFox 1.5, and Internet explorer 6, nothing happens to the image on the right when I hover over the nav links.

    Whoa - the content is a little risque for 7:54 am... although I'm sure it'll appeal to many.

    Looks good. I like the banner.
    One thing I don't like is the Nav hover effect (to all caps.). There is not enough contrast between the background and text to make this an effective change. Could the text color change to maybe the blue color, so the effect is obvious?
