I just launched a site that allows users to build CSS menus. I'm still working on the rest of the menu styles, but have 3 up there so far and am looking for some feedback on the overall concept and function of the site. I would greatly appreciate any feedback you all may have. I'll add your suggestions onto a list of improvements for the next rainy day!

The site is at http://www.13styles.com.

Thanks a million!

Criticism Welcome...

I haven't signed up to test out any of the menus but the site looks good. Only a couple of small points:
1. When you're on the forum page, there's a 'What's New' link in the top nav - it's not on any other pages.
2. You've spelt menus as menu's on your support page.
3. The large space at the bottom of the page (after all the content) seems a bit pointless.

How to get help
Post a link. If you can't post a link, jsFiddle it.

Thanks for the feedback. Those are things I'll fix asap. For anyone else who wants to demo the menu generator, but doesn't want to sign-up, here's a demo login:

Kinda like this site's pageMaker, which has been very helpful to dissect and figure out from. Maybe sub-navs won't be so scary now...

Criticism Welcome...

you're using xhtml 1.0 trans but you didnt close your <img> tags on index.php

your faq.php has trons of errors - let me know if you need me to point them out, found about 20ish

contact.php has

<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>

in it.... why? make yourself a nice div class

<meta> tags arent closed on any of the pages.

something is up with this page - http://www.13styles.com/forum - there is a big gray line at the bottom and there is no Register link it top right corner.

navigation changes when in /forum

other then that

looks good!

Nice site: consistent use of colors, spacious text and clear images.
Tested in O7.5, FF1.5 and IE6.

Just took a quick look and after viewing the source code i noticed a few errors right off.

1) Why are you using tables to position images? Thats a big no-no!

2) Why are you using HTML table attributes? You should define styles for your tables in your .css file. It will remove the clutter from your (X)HTML documents. HTML Table attributes are depreciated nowerdays.

Good Luck!

I just had a spare 10 mins to take a proper look. I must say that the design is really nice. The only main faults i can see is that your using tables for you layout.

http://www.13styles.com/styles.php

Your using tables to position the example images. You really need to get rid of these tables from yout HTML. Tables should be used for tabled data only, not for layout or positioning purposes.

Like i stated if you clear the tables issue you have a real nice template Smile
