thoughts on this mockup

Not really sure what direction on going to take this. What do you guys think so far in terms of aesthetics, usability, etc?

i love it aesthetically

usability is lacking somewhat

actually usability is fine

what i meant to say is i don’t like the colors when you click on different sections

i was going to just leave it white for text only pages, black for the photo, and gray for the tracks, but i wanted to tie in the page color with the colors used in the nav

.

It’s alright, not mind blowing. Straight to the point. Change the fanny pack colors

The coloured backgrounds is too much. Instead of colouring the entire background, maybe just a stripe, or the heading of the page, or something.

This. I like the color, actually. I just think it’s overpowering, and looks strange only taking up the bottom of the page. Maybe if you balanced it out with large blocks of white text or graphics it wouldn’t look as overpowering.

how did u make header static like that when clicking over to another link

headers tend to be static..

there’s a lot you can do with the colors instead of having the bottom portion all a color

if its position:static

it does not refresh along with pages when you click on links that navigate you tto another page?

You’ve got a wrong understanding of position:static;

The dault position of any item on a page is "static"

this answers nothing

i was asking about the static header from not refreshing along with the rest of the page when you navigate to diff pages on navbar.

If your heart is set on changing the colors on the bottom, you could just use very dark versions of those colors so light text is still readable. White text on that lime green and pink is horrid.

Or, like others suggested, put in a color stripe or something. (best)

the way its set up right now is, the body css has both a background color, and a background image.

the background image is the white part of the page. it is set to tile horizontally only.

the color appears "behind" the image, and because the image only takes up a part of the screen, the color extends to beyond the bottom of the image.

i have an idea on how to make the colors less overwhelming, but it would mean a different background image on each page

something im not sure about is the size of the "logo". is it too big? overwhelming? i ask because im on a netbook, and the vertical resolution is at a mere 600px.

i also havent tested it in xhtml or css validators. i did run it though that online service that displays your website in practically any browser and provides a screenshot. it did well in most popular browsers.

what about the coding; is it semantic and elegant enough?

CSS looks fine, HTML looks fine.

"Result: 6 Errors, 2 warning(s)" when validating, xhtml and css are both popping up errors.

just a thought

you can place your copyright info in the bottom so it doesn’t look like it’s just floating there.
