Honest advise

My wife and I have been working on updating my website. Let me know what you think. Good / Bad.

There are some areas with nothing in them. They are areas that did not exist on the old site. We hope to get info into them asap. Any ideas or things that you would do different. Any areas that are hard to navigate. All information will be appreciated.

A World of Fish

I will be sure to let my wife hear anything good that is said. She has done the layout, graphics and coding. I just supplied the content.

Thanks in advance.

Beautiful layout, easy access to the navs, and pages, overall great design!! I love it! Did you use a program to create it or do you know html?

Seems pretty cool, nice work... The only suggestion I'd have is, where's the link back here? Well it's a thought anyway... The only negative thing I could say has nothing to do with either of you or the site... it's that darn link exchange stuff... I am soooo sick of seeing dating ads everywhere... I mean everywhere... it isn't there everytime but there's a different link everytime... the good thing is that the links are at the bottom, where they belong...

We or should I say she uses Dreamwever. But still does alot of the coding manually. She has a graphics design degree and is currently out of work so she had some extra time on her hands. Something else to add to her resume.

Its on the forum link page
forum link
I cant ignore this place.

the link exchange is suppose to be in a pets only area. Where pet ads are the only thing allowed. BUT the way this world operates people sign up their sites anywhere just to ruin it for everyone else. I have considered getting rid of the ad or putting it into a invisible format so I can still use the information it provides me on hits and time of day traffic.

My site is now on a pay server so I have the benefit of getting rid of all adds if needed. But they do supply a small percent of the cost of running the site. Unlike the free servers who let you know where the ads go, we have total control we can place the ads at the bottom of the page as you said. In addition we can keep pop up windows from annoying people by not having any. In the future I may minimise the ads or move them to a "support this site" area if they annoy me to much. Kind of a catch 22, the Ads are why I moved to a paid server in the first place.


Thanks you 3 and keep em comming.

It may be because I am using a mac, but I had some trouble loading the website, but once it did it looks great.
Sidenote: there is some extra-text saying "undefined" on the top left corner.

were you able to see the logo? that is what is in the corner.

I cant say we tried it on a mac.
I know we tried it with explorer, mozilla, and netscape. but all on pentium and celeron based systems.

The only thing critical I have to say is the banner isn't stitched properly, on my screen resolution. It cuts through the clownfish and the strpes don't match up in two places. Otherwise the site is great.

Apparently so is whomever created the site, but I think the majority of people these days are still running 80600 or 1024X768.
