Made my own website
« on: 24 Feb 2014, 19:48 »

more accurately, I built this website for another...

I'm NOT a website designer.  But I do try.

I look forward to your feedback:  Thanks.

That kind of HTML was cutting edge back in, like, 1995.

The white links at the top don't have a lot of contrast. It would probably be easier to see if it were a different color.

Pilchard: my budget limits the snazzy internet goodies I can implement:  besides: 1995 was a GOOD year.  :b

Cesium: thank you and so noted.  Do you think Green might work better?

A medium-to-dark green should probably work well. The background image is mostly light in color, so you'd want something relatively dark to provide contrast.

Most importantly, your website works. How a website looks is not unimportant, but what it does is more important. If I were a customer, I would want to know some basic things: Who are you? What do you sell? How do I contact you? Where are you? When are you open? Your site provided me with all that info in less than a minute. Other remarks:

Don't refer to pages to which you don't link, and which don't appear in the menu. On your News or Reviews page (should be News & Reviews, incidentally, since there are both), you say "See more in our PRODUCTS page!" That text should be a link, and you do not have a "PRODUCTS" page listed in your menu. The HTML document called Products.html is labelled in the menu as Trailers.

Why are golf-carts and trailer accessories on the same page? If you track how many people visit your pages, how will you know how many people are interested in golf-carts and how many in tow-bars etc.?

I'm not a member of your local population, and maybe its a well-known thing where you are, but what is a "racer" (some sort of toy car? Two amateurish-looking bricks with wheels?), and why should I care?

Where you use a green background banner to text, you should centre the text in the banner.

Akima:  thank you.
I will fix the products vs. trailers page ... I totally missed that.

the racers are Pinewood Derby cars: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinewood_derby
and they are easily recognizable to locals.

I combined golf carts and accessories pages because Im' out of page budget, and they are minor catalog items.
