    Hi, Aurel,

    it looks good. however, I think more simplistic fonts should be used as current fonts are very hard to read.

    hi @J in Calgary,

    I need you opinion in this
    - If I keep this brown sidebar, how important is it to fade it. I just want to know that if I do not fade it out would it be distracting.
    - at the moment I am going to keep it fade out, I just wanted to know your opinion on it

    ps - the test from the Five Second Test has 15 responses and 8 of them have chosen the orange sidebar - but I am going to keep the brown sidebar

    Thanks

    Further to @Ralph.m's post and other references to the HTML validation errors.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/fir...tml-validator/

    I noticed that your design tools are similar to mine but lacking in an online validator. Take a look at the above Free Firefox addon which validates after the page has been displayed and shows either a red or green icon in the lower right corner. Happiness is a green icon

    I used your email facility to send a message and after posting was presented with <b> tags in the heading. Not very professional.

    [hr]

    Overall I like the site apart from the font colours which was I think was not sufficient contrast.

    [hr]



    Mod please note I have not connected to the HTML Validator and just impressed that it is such a magnificent tool.

    No, I did not implement anything for mobile. But I kind of do have mobile planed on paper.
    Few things that I would do is:
    - remove the sidebar
    - simplify the logo and the banner in general.
    - remove the grid from the portfolio page

    But when I do decide, I am going to try and re-do most of it by trying the mobile first method as there are a lot of pointless detail that would not need to be loaded on mobile devices
    ** Which as far as I understand what I would need to do is put the existing css in the media quires and then create the mobile css without any media query. Something along those lines (I'll read more into it)

    Thanks for your input

    I am not 100% sure what <b> tag you are referring to. If you are talking about the contact form at the top, and if you tried to send me a message through that, I can say that there is no functionality to that form yet.
    I have a feeling that I did not understand what you mean, if so, I'd appreciate it if you could clarify it for me

    after others mentioned the validation problems I did get a similar plugin for Chrome.
    Thanks for your input

    Just before someone corrects me. I know that "mobile first" should be undertaken from the design stage, but its to late for that in this case

    You can also go for @media screen for mobile

    On the home page using both Firefox and Opera the title shows the following:

    PHP Code:

    <title>

    AurelsLaba personal Blog of Aurel Kurtula | &lt;b&gt;Hi&lt;/b&gt;! I am &lt;b&gt;Aurel&lt;/b&gt;, this is my playground for my &lt;b&gt;thoughts&lt;/b&gton &lt;b&gt;web design&lt;/b&gt;

    </
    title
    >>> ...validation problems I did get a similar plugin for Chrome.
    Are the errors in my cache or your validator is not working correctly?

    If you are unable to remove before displaying then try strip_tags()

    Thanks for letting me know

    I don't think it has to fade when it's brown (I mean, it's not so distracting from the posts), but it could fade. Whatever you like.

    I had the same result on one of my click tests, too--8 to 7! Kind of frustrating not to get a more definitive answer. I did see your test, and wanted to recommend that next time you do a click test, screen capture exactly the same part of the screen (there were different posts), and try to have them side by side instead of one on top of the other. However, that didn't help me get a clear answer in my case (it was a color preference check, too).

    I noticed that too right after I finished submitting it.
    But I have started to like the sidebar being brown and on top of it your explanation is solid so I am going to keep it as it is.

    I will try another test soon - but as I said the use of brown does sound logical and it does look good enough.

    Thanks

    Nice website, just the font needs to be a bit smaller.
    Also try and remove the search to the top right maybe instead of under the banner.
