    What do you mean "a new layout"?

    You mean you don't like that one or what?

    Sorry....not clear for me.

    First thing I'd do to it is make it a white background tho. My eyes are still buggy from it.

    The second would be to change:

    http://spiritconnect.au to a real hyperlink, especially considering they're providing your hosting free.

    ;)

    What is CPanel?

    What else could a "new layout" mean? And thank you for pointing that hyperlink thing out,I will fix it ASAP. And CPANEL is like an easy way to upload stuff and control your whole website.

    HTML is my hobby. So I will not mind doing it. Wait for a few days. I may be able to do something for you. But no promises!! ;)

    I didn't mean to be "smart" or anything. I guess I mean...well...you didn't give a clue as to what you don't like about it.

    I think it might be cool if you go to www.classythemes.com and tell us which one of the 50,000 (number is exaggerated, I really don't know how many there are) you like.

    :D

    You know...she's a friend of mine, so of course I'd like to see people buy. I've bought a few myself.

    But the really cool thing is just getting ideas even.... LOTS of ideas...

    Even just color schemes and such that you just can't envision, you can see them together there pretty well.

    If you do like one, but don't like the colors, buy it anyway 'cause you can change the colors and stuff.

    I really LOVE some of that stuff.

    FYI

    The page does mess with your eyes.

    A background color change is needed. Of course if you change the background, you might want to change the text color. If you are going ot stick with a dark background, use bold text. Also the text needs to be 20% larger. it is tiny at 1024 x 768.

    as for cross browser compatibility, the page works and displays virtually the same in all the browsers.

    as for the layout it's actually not too bad, but needs to be tweaked a lot.

    From what the site looks like now, you would probably want a layout like

    www.arstechnica.com or www.hardocp.com

    minus a lot of the fancy stuff though, but the general layout I think you would like. Probably more like the first one.

    oh and below is page of mine that I never finished, but you may like the layout. (it uses a lot of css, improperly I might add and looks funky in netscape 4.8, but the rest of the browsers it looks fine.) Feel free to use any of the code, just don't copy the content.
