Hey everyone, I am getting ready to release my redesign, and am just going over a few last minute things. If you would, the page in question is here: http://ifohdesigns.com/redesign/index.html

Any and all feedback is welcome. Thanks.

The good, the bad, and the ungly

1. love the color scheme
2. It Validates !!
3. "Subscribe to our blog" col is a little close to the main content considering all the extra space laying around.
4. Your site description leaves little for the site to be properly indexed.
5. Nice meaningful markup !!
7. those jagged-toothed graphics above each post, doesnt really go along with the feel of the site, i dont think. Maybe some nice-looking cloud-shaped ones would fit better. Add a little accents to go along with your RSS feed cloud at the top. Same applies to the footer teeth graphic.
8. "submit comment" button a little hard to read.
9. You have an in the XHTML, but your CSS turns it off... why is it even there?
10. You dont need this code in your base.css cause you already have it in reset.css...

ul ul, ol ol, ol ul, ul ol {
			margin: 0;
			}

This is in there twice, by-the-way.
11. i like the way you've formatted your code. Site look great!

Thanks a lot man for the quick response.

- What are you referring to here?

- Nice suggestion, and I will give more thought to that. hadn't really played much with that.

8. "submit comment" button a little hard to read.
- agreed, completely.
9. You have an in the XHTML, but your CSS turns it off... why is it even there?
- Just for separating the sections. I find it helpful when I am on my phone or something when CSS is not present, or at least styled differently.

10. You dont need this code in your base.css cause you already have it in reset.css...
- thanks, yeah I am still going through and removing redundant styles, etc. thanks for the heads up.

Appreciate it!

Sorry, i forgot to make any sense with that one. in my head, i was refering to the meta data for site description. search bots index the site descriotion.

Your site looks great. Love

Your site looks great. Love the color scheme and the graphics. Only thing I could think of is maybe adding a background color to the column on the right if there is going to be more information in that column. Just an idea.

Nice site - even under the hood!

Hey Matt -

Really like your work and your html is clean and clear! The only additional comment I would have it agreeing w/ FernE97 - maybe a really subtle background - even a light, light greyish on the right column...

Great job!
