Comments on website

Discussion in 'HTML' started by GuyBrush Treepwood, Mar 30, 2005.

  1. I've posted a question here a few months ago about iframes. The
    simple answer was that I should get rid of the iframe and frames in
    general. So I made a new site from scratch, and this is what I've got now:

    http://wilma.vub.ac.be/~lddekeyz/final/

    I would like to hear comments from people who are more familiar with html
    then I.

    The image on the first page (a link which must be clicked to load the menu
    and content) does nothing to suggest it is a link, and gives no suggestion
    about what it links to. Use of the "title" attribute in the <img> tage will
    help a little but at the very least some text underneath, please.

    The first page is a useless "doorpage". Why using it? Better make the
    home.html page the first page.

    What's the "repeat scroll top left;" doing in the CSS? It gives an
    validation error at http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator-uri.html

    The "Click the image to enter the site" is unnecessary. Why not just go
    directly to here?:

    http://wilma.vub.ac.be/~lddekeyz/final/pages/home.html

    Dark blue text on a black background (for the current active page) is not at
    all easy to read.

    Other than that, looks OK!

    regards

    - Try making the pages validate.
    - a dark background is very unpleasant to read
    - get rd of the splash opening
    - try putting your site on but be sure to have
    something on it instead of TEST TEST TEST. People there have a lot of
    experience and want to take the time to look at your site IF YOU have done
    it yourself as well. If you can take the criticism, you can put your site up
    there...

    regards

    First off, what is the purpose of your "entry" page? Why not go
    directly to what people are coming to your site for?

    Your visitors won't care whether your site is valid or not so you should
    probably remove the images proclaiming validation. I have taken to
    placing a comment near the top of my code stating the last validation
    date. I don't necessarily validate every time I edit a page. Using the
    comment method, anyone interested in my coding style will see it when
    they view source, but the visitor that doesn't care won't see it.

    I'm not sure if you did it on every page, but you've made a mistake in
    your coding on the one I looked at the source code of. For a paragraph,
    you want <p>text</p> instead of <p>text<p>. Your pages loaded a bit
    slow but I don't know whether that is my LAN right now, your server, or
    something in between.

    The only other thing I will point out is that your background is too
    dark for my tastes. I prefer lighter backgrounds, but that is a
    personal opinion. I don't recommend using a dark background, but there
    are times when it is appropriate. You'll have to decide if it is
    appropriate or not.

    One of the ugliest creations I've seen in last few weeks.

    So ugly... it hurts!

  8. Well, it's just coloring, and easy to fix. "Negative" in my image
    software gives very nice colors...

    Anyway, why div classed header, instead of h1?

    Those validator icons are nonsence. They usually mean that author has
    heard about validator, but don't know what it means. They have nothing to
    do with validity of said site: http://www.htmlhelp.com/cgi-
    bin/validate.cgi?&url=http://wilma.vub.ac.be/~lddekeyz/final/&warnings=ye
    s&spider=yes&hidevalid=yes

    There is double br elements for paragraphs.

    That splash screen is bad, and finding link is too hard task. If you
    insist on spash screen, at leat make *everything* in it clickable, and
    leading to same place. (though it is unlikely that anyone would click
    those validator images)

    Quite good. Couldn't find more problems. Rarely happens...

    Heh, quoting your mum? It's not that bad, Henry.
    Lose the w3c images and it's a good start for a band site.

    just took a quick decko, you should separate the validation logos a bit,
    they jam (ha) up to each other and look bad... put a no breaking space in or
    something between them, you'll figure it. If you can't, ask again and I will
    take a closer look... I get the feeling that the music you are into is not
    bright and breezy or croony or happy (say like Doris Day's "Teacher's Pet")

    Looks OK ... although it would be easier to judge if there was some real
    content on the site.

    As some contributors have mentioned, there are a few coding 'errors'
    such as <p><p> instead of <p></p>, but what there is seems to be OK.

    I'd lose the valid xhtml/css stickers, not because they're not a good
    idea, but because they don't really go with your colour scheme ;-)

    The only thing that you should be doing is to make sure that the
    <title></title> content reflects the contents/purpose of the *page*

    regards.

  13. Thanks for the constructive critique, Henry.
    Glad you took the time to reply. Maybe you could enlighten me and show a
    few of you're own creations so I learn how it's done?
