Hello Callam,

It is looking good so far – though your links point to :

http://thetimberkid.webs.com/http://thetimberkid.webs.com/index.htm
http://thetimberkid.webs.com/http://thetimberkid.webs.com/projects.htm
http://thetimberkid.webs.com/http://thetimberkid.webs.com/videos.htm
http://thetimberkid.webs.com/http://thetimberkid.webs.com/links.htm
http://thetimberkid.webs.com/http://thetimberkid.webs.com/contact.htm

Which will need fixing.

Your projects look great.

Hugs

Callum,

You have fixed the ‘home’ page but not the other pages links. You need to modify every page the links appear on. Also a lot of users who have already looked at the site might have old links cached (rare but it happens).

I would make a few suggestions on improvements:

- Give each page a large title.
- Whilst ensuring the overall theme (colours, etc.) remain the same on each page, each page should be subtly different.
- As your page is not a commercial site consider using frames as a navigation tool. They are easy to make and add a level of professionalism to the look for not much effort.
- You haven’t done it yet (which is good) but try to avoid a plethora of plug-ins they slow your site down, and aggravate your visitors whilst it is loading.
- If you have the same picture on a lot of pages ensure its address is the same on all pages so it can be cached by the visitors browser.
- It is a little tricky but try to adhere to the three clicks and your there from your home page – basically users can get to what they want from your home page in three or less clicks.
- Your home page should avoid chat windows, videos, and other plug-ins as much as possible. Let users decide if they want to go chat, or view a slide show. Keep your home page simple, a blurb, a picture or two (I would suggest a picture of your workshop and/or a signature piece).

I used to design web pages for a living so I am happy to offer help if you need it.

Hugs
Belinda
