I finally got off my lazy butt and updated my community website.

I use a mac so I'm not sure if everything is 100% on IE. Looks perfect in Safari, Camino, and Firefox....

Please let me know weather or not it works.

I also added an art critique forum, for people to post their music, graphic art work etc and even added free space to all the users to upload.
I've been testing it non stop (and I think I fixed all of the bugs...but you never know)

The site is called Doink - http://www.doink.biz

Please let me know if there are errors that I should look in to.

Thank you for the help!

It's definitely appreciated.

There are a lot of errors:

Also, you need to set a minimum width.

Haven't take a good look a the code.

Let us know when you've fixed these, then we'll take another look.

All done!I'm not sure what

All done!

I'm not sure what you mean by site width...I set the top bar to be 100% and the rest about 80%...

Thanks,
Dave

edit: This is the first time I've done 3 column with Divs alone. I'm not sure how right it is...I just kept messing around with it until it all worked.
I'd appreciate help, if I did it wrong...

You can set the page so that

You can set the page so that it will not get narrower than a fixed amount. Below this, the user gets a horizontal scrollbar. It stops the design breaking at narrow widths.

That worked great! Thank you so much.

Is there anything else I can do to improve the coding (SEO stuff?).

Again thank you for all the help.

Hi Looks great. Took a look

Hi

Looks great. Took a look at the html. The Recent Posts bit suffers from divitis.

You might consider using an unordered or definition list and cutting out the constant references to the same classes.

Ok I just figured out how to use definition lists.

Applied it.

What else can I change?! I'm so excitied about all the optimizations, it feel good to actually do things properly.

Thanks again!

PS:
Oh instead of having my own headers classes I replaced them with H1 and H2, so nice!
