Hello, I have spent a good part of the last 2 weeks redoing a large site. I think I have it set up pretty well now using XOOPS for all of it.

Can anyone take a minute to look it over and give me their opinion?

The original site is located HERE

and the XOOPS version I am working on is located HERE


Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated. I have never used XOOPS or php prior to 2 weeks ago so it is likely that I have screwed several things up....lol


I am waiting on a review from here before I add the rest of the content.

Thank you so much !!!!!!!!!

PS-I am beginning to love XOOPS

Hi, I looked at your site and here I have some comments for ya:
- Try to avoid many different fonts.
- Don't use many different sizes one a page.
- Use a closing line on the right of your tables.

Because of the variate between the fonts the site is a little bit disoriantating for me. You nice table borders, but why not on the most important section on the right? I have the feeling that the text can 'walk away'.
When you've finished that try to add minor graphics. Not that graphics are always good for a site. Mines is plain atm.

Although for a beginner it is ok.

Thank you for the suggestions. I think I worked out the font issue. Also, will be adding some graphics later to dress things up a bit, but wanted to get the basic layout and such set up and functioning.

I also still have to change the other style sheets
(only worked on the IE one so far)

Once agian, thank you for the suggstions.

Page looks great except I don’t like the GIF down where the footer is.

For the site-content the bgcolor is great. It`s sure that you have to make a layout with (only) one font.

Perhaps the award-images may be smaller.

All in all it is a great work!

I don't like it there either.....lol

Was planning to add it to the donations page since the hosting company has been really great to be me :)

Thank you for the saying this! I have always wanted to use soft colors for hte background because of the content. I think I finally found the perfect color :)

Still working on the style sheets to work out the font issuses. First time I have ever used style sheets so I am learning as I go.

I agree about this too. Was figuring on finding a way to reduce the size or use a different module for them. Was considering putting a section in the news area for awards, but might be able to find something down the line to fit their need better :)

Once agian, thank you all for taking your time to take a look at my site!
