    Site Review Please...

    Hi im currently making a Wordpress Showcase site using Wordpress as the backend CMS.

    Im trying to make the site a little unique to the others out there, ie. colors and layout.

    I would like some input into the design, functionality and overall layout of the site.

    It's nowhere near finished ie. logo, footer and some other things just need some feedback as it is.

    The site is Wordpress Showcase.

    Dont be shy with your comments and feedback.

    Cheers.

    Karl

    The few functions there are seems to work in IE6-7 FX.
    I like the popup details functions. Simple and straight forward. Thats good.
    I think the visual layout is well balanced and the color and background are too.

    But the comments and other input fields are too similar in color compared to the bg. On my tft they are hard to spot dispite the hover effect. So are the head-boxes. For the menu I think an intermediate bright on hover color, wich then becomes brighter as current, would be nice instead of underlining.

    I'll check again in time.

    No content. The layout is good though. Easy on eyes

    I agree with erik.j, the hover effect would be better with background color instead of underline. Not familar with wordpress, is it a HTML Editor ? or a picture Editor or both. If not, may want to add a free one so visitors can change, modify the site pictures. Good idea, may want to add a tutorial to show & tell how to use the pictures, how to change edit them, crop, enhance, etc. and how to place on website or does wordpress have them, if so may want to link to instructions.
    hope this helps

    I like the overall design, it is appealing. I also like the rating popup for the images.

    I do not feel the design is unique though...it is a lot like many other designs I have seen, there isn't much that sets it apart. In fact, it kind of reminds me of the wordpress.com homepage. Regardless, it's still really nice.

    Hi,
    site looks good but as you said it does need more work.

    but there is one other thing, the SEO
    when you posted link to your site in your post as text for site you wrote "here"
    you should write "my Wordpress Showcase site" or something like that
    I know that it is maybe 1% of SEO but every % counts

    Best wishes, Milko
