    IE Bug...but still could use your comments/suggestions

    Hi:

    I've just designed http://theroelofs.com and have found a few IE specific bugs with the JavaScript (menu realigns text in center pane) that I'm currently working on.

    Please review -- your comments are welcome!!! This site is intended for out of town guests to browse for travel arrangements and updates.

    Thanks for your time and consideration.

    Nice date it adds up to the number 7, great idea to keep your guests informed.

    crobinson14 - the site looks OK, but I was annoyed by the drop navigation sytem - the see the sub-menu items, but they disappear when you click on one of them, so you have to select the main menu item once again to visit a related section. The layout is very clean though, but I don't now why the calenders display Jan, Feb and March - work in progress I imagine.

    I thought I'd gone to the wrong site when I arrived there intially. Is it a wedding day site or a travel site? The purpose of the site is not clear.

    You seem to have built everything using .asp, which I know very little about. Is there a content management system in the backend?

    Why don't you take a look at a few open source content management systems? I use Joomla!, but you will find others out there. Drupal, Wordpress even, which will allow to concentrate on the functionality, the look and the content, without you having to worry about the coding too much. You do need to learn a little about MySql and you will need to spend some time becoming familiar with how these CMSs work, and knowing css will be useful too, but the effort is well worthwhile, I can vouch for that. And you can end up with good quality results for very little investment - mainly time. You can also end up with a feature rich site - which will help make it a success.

    Just a suggestion.

    All the best,

    Thanks Jakofall for the comments. I'll take a look at Joomla this week, while on travel. The site is for guests who are attending the wedding -- to see what's happening, make travel arrangements, find out more about the bride and groom, etc. The content for the site will remain static for the most part, but the Joomla product sounds useful for something in the future. However, I will take another look at the navigation. When designing, I thought it would keep the site "cleaner" looking by having the menu drop, but now that I have your input I'll review other options.

    Thanks again.

    The site may look better with a static navigation instead of a drop down, it just seems sort of odd to me. Also, I think a small border around the content may be good. Something just bugs be about how you have the one pixel border around the blue areas at the top and bottom, yet there is nothing aroung the white area in the middle.
