    Hey Guys!

    Ok, so firstly, a small intro. As a hobby, I am a basic web designer. I thus have a website and some HTML/CSS/Javascript/PHP skills.

    By the way, I have permission from Ian to post this thread.

    Ok, so now the actual website. Here is the link:
    www.firetiger3.110mb.com

    Now, this isn't an advertising post, so there's more to it. I would like your opinion. What do you think of the UI? The membership system? etc...

    Also, you'll notice it has no actual "use". I was thinking of maybe dedicating it to these forums, or something similar. If it were yours, what would you put on it?

    So that's it. I would appreciate your advice and comments. Though, please keep in mind this is my first (and a half) website, and that I haven't got access to things like MySQL.

    Cheers,
    Fire Cat

    First thing would be to remove any header optimization if you cannot modify the header.

    Next would be to place all you page links on the same line instead of separate lines. I might would also add them to the same area that has "Fire Cat Website" in it.

    Maybe something like this. :)

    I get the following error above the page:
    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /www/110mb.com/f/i/r/e/t/i/g/e/firetiger3/htdocs/new/index.php:15) in /www/110mb.com/f/i/r/e/t/i/g/e/firetiger3/htdocs/new/counter.php on line 16

    I don't know what feedback to give, there isn't much yet to comment on. A bit lacking in content...but you knew that already.

    Thanks Guys!

    Ok, so about the warning, that's normal, and I'm onto it ;)
    You'll notice that not all the pages have the error.

    @Clifford
    Great idea! That looks great! I'm changing that as soon as possible :)

    @Core
    That's exactly why I want some feedback. What would be usefull?

    Anyone tried the membership system?

    How about logging out once you log in?

    cannot modify header may exist because there are extra spaces at the end of a file. Check index.php.

    FC - Nice website, although it could use some kicka** graphics.

    Maybe some photos of those cute Hollander girls in bikinis or similar. :eek:

    Maybe some French cuties sunbathing on the Riviera! ;)

    JK! Good job so far! Keep it up! :beer:

    I think the idea for purpose of the site should precede its development, if it is to be successful in the long run. It doesn't really matter much how good the covers of the book look if the pages inside are blank.

    I was reading deeper into things and noticed that this will allow you a free website. Is this true? And if so, would that large amount of data be red flagged by your ISP (100GB). The reason that I'm wondering, is that I would like to start a forum of my own, but it has nothing whatsoever to do with computing.
    Thanks,
    Cat

    Cat,
    Yes this makes it possible to have your own website for free. Though, for free, you won't get the MySQL database you need for a forum, and you've only got 110MB of space.

    If you were to make a forum, I would advise you to go with websites like "forumactif.com", as you can make a full-featured forum in a few minutes. Though, you have adds.

    Your logo is pixilated. Use a png instead of a gif.

    IF you don't have the software to do that, you can go online and there are several websites where you can convert for free graphics files from one format to another.

    :)

    I've used all your advice (actually, I left out the music. Sorry Trainableman.) and I've made a new version, with new layout. Thanks a lot guys.

    I'm going to get my own domain in the following month :)

    DREAMWEAVER ROCKS!

    Someone put some music on their website before Trainableman's head explodes.

    What do you think of the new layout/design? I only made it for the homepage...

    Is this the right link?
    http://www.firetiger3.110mb.com/new/index.php

    If yes, then for a website I think spelling & grammer are important ...

    "I make this website in my spare time" should be "I am making this website in my spare time" which then matches the tense of "is run by 2 administrators".

    "Comming Soon" - one M in Coming

    When I click Login it explodes ... parse error

    And none of the links down the page seem to function, I cannot click "Welcome", nor "Links", nor any of the items under Links, "Sitemap" etc.

    Here's another thread I completely missed.

    What the Train Man said!
    Looks promising but technically I know nothing about this stuff.
    Maybe throw a little a bone to the folding team. We could use any help we can get. Just wondering how to go about it.

    Keep up the good work!

    Yo
