Designed with tables and has

Designed with tables and has markup errors. This is looked down upon greatly here. This is a forum on css based table-less designs, where tables are only used for what they were intended for, such as tabular data. You're not going to get much of positive feedback based on that. Your layout would be easily achieved without tables, so if you need help or direction on how to do that, we can assist with that.

The good, the bad, and the ugly

1. Neither your XHTML or CSS Validates. This should always come before style.

2. Table-based layouts are for monkeys. Are you a monkey? Didnt think so.

3. I dont see any heading tags anywhere.

4. text is too small.

5. What the hell is this site? I should not have to ask myself that.

6. Blog font and colors dont match the rest of the site.

7. check the image size (not dimensions) of the header graphics. They can be reduced alot.

8. All those photo links(bottom left two col) are "Forbidden". not much use to the end-user.

9. i'm not going to go through your XHTML, too messy with all the table tags.

Sorry if this was harsh.

You want harsh? How about link-whore blocked.

Can you tell I've had it with these schmucks wasting our time? :curse:

More accurately, it was a fluff post. A post that has no purpose other than getting google to see that your site is linked that's supposed to increase your page rank in the search engines. This forum, thankfully, adds rel="nofollow" to every link in posts and signatures.
