    Web Site

    Since there's no HTML board here, I decided to post on the GD Board. I've gotten pretty good at basic web layouts. Here are a few of my test subjects

    The site for a game I'm making

    My friends site


    C&C, please!

    I swear to God, if you ever attempt to use a bitmap on a webpage again I'm going to slit your throat. That's definitely a violation of everyone's web design guides. Not to mention you didn't even get the colors right.

    Also, it's not that hard to use invisible tables. Please do.

    Oh, and two words: COLOR SCHEME.

    Don't take Ken's words too harshly, he has a tendency of being like that lol. He does however prove many good points.

    Don't use frames. They're the number 1 mistake in web design - unless you use them well, which you didn't. Tables are much nicer for what you're doing, and inline frames are good for some things. (the tag is <IFRAME>) At least get rid of the borders on those frames.

    My site has a very simplistic looking design, and uses tables and one inline frame (for the links) to do all the layout. (The corners are .gifs) Remember, simpler is better with web design.
    Away.

    1) No frames in his page
    2) No reason to use frames on your page. Try tables or CSS. Hopefully CSS.
    3) Redesign your entire website.

    1) Whoops, sorry, with those lines, I thought that your table was frames. My bad. It's still ugly though

    2) I use an inline frame on my site so that I can store the links in another file. The layout is all done with tables. I don't know CSS and don't have time to learn it or I would use it.

    3) What's wrong with my design?
    Away.

    While we're on the topic of websites... anyone got any comments? It's a site I started in February, and I stopped working on it soon after. I really need to start working on it again.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    I like it. Just add more to the front page, it's wayyyy too bare.

    >>2) I use an inline frame on my site so that I can store the links in another file. The layout is all done with tables. I don't know CSS and don't have time to learn it or I would use it.<<

    I guess it makes it easier for you to update the links, and that's why you did it? If so, I'll give you that.

    >>3) What's wrong with my design?

    One large, round-edged square isn't very exciting. It's one of the most boring sites thsat I've ever seen. Not to mention the red on that greeny-blue isn't the best looking. Try using a black with a 1px white stroke around it.

    PS: LEARN CSS.

    Yeah, I know. Most of the work I've been doing is on the back-end coding.

    How do I do that? Do I need CSS? I don't know of any way to do it with standard HTML.
    Away.

    Yes
    Or, if you want to use an image, photoshop. I'd go with CSS.
