Hello everyone,

I've just finished a new site layout, only page contents remains to be added later.

This site uses self-made Mootools and JS scripts, as well as Slimbox. I made the site to be perfectly visible and navigable even with JS disabled.

The site won't scroll vertically or horizontally, all the content of each page will be visible (since there won't be much content).

I have tested this on the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, both Win and Mac, and IE (7 and 8, don't care for 6), with no issues found.

I would like to hear some suggestions or critics from you, since this is the very first website I made all by myself there will be many things to do better. Expecially if you find any bug with the fading background images.

Thank you very much in advance. Star

thank you, since I don't have the possibility to test it with IE 6, could you tell me if the site works as with other browsers?

Thanks

EDIT: I seem to have managed to correct the issue on IE6! Thank you!

testing

You can test your page with other browsers: search adobe browser labs make an account and you will have access to almost all kinds of browser versions and types.

about your website, it looks good, clean design good hierarchy, good color choice, about the thumbnails a the bottom left corner, there is something that bugs me because I don't see them above the fold, maybe that's just me
good work Smile

Just one thing

That is a gorgeous site, and I can see no issues except for those already pointed out.

The one thing I would say is that if I was doing a new site I would make it HTML5. In fact, as your site has a simple structure I would see it as a good opportunity to cut my HTML5 teeth.

The background images fading

The background images fading out to white and then back again is really distracting and annoying after a while.

I guess you don't want to

I guess you don't want to sell whatever it is you sell to old people with weakish eyes like me, for whom your chosen font sizes and low contrast might just as well be set to zero for all that I can read them. I guess old people (like grandparents) wouldn't buy teddybears and stuff for their grandchildren at your site or perhaps you consider their money tainted.

Or maybe you are just blinded by your youth and think your own eyes will be perfect forever so other people's will be too?

Seems like an odd business model though...
