    For first time that is EXCELLENT! Nice work.. One suggestion, the images that open up into bigger images, go into the properties and make them opne as a pop up window. Otherwise very nice indeed.

    No they will work ok. My own personal advice DROP lightbox.

    Light boxes are ok... but they have flaws which I personally think are very offputing to the viewer, and only work when the whole page has downloaded, rendering the effects non existant if clicked prior.

    First you should change the page titles, index/home are not very discriptive as to what the page is about. You should add a footer to your pages, make them look finished. Something like the copy right No lable Apearal and such. In the main body you have text over the image of the tanks, you should link those to the specific pages. People may think they are links I did. You need to work on your images many are too big (kb) You have to use an imagine program like Pix Resizer (search in the box above to download it free) The ladies appearal link is broken (not found) You should use a form for your contact page do not post your email address you will get bombarded with spam and I would move your faqs link into the main menu. I like the layout and color. Good stuff now tweek it.

    Have to double check how you saved the page one letter off and it will not work also a upper or lower case letter off will not show.

    I would have the footer at the bottom (foot) just to make the page look like it ends properly.

    Moving the faqs because it get lost in the contact drop down and you have to go around it to get to the contacts page.

    There are videos on the forms, and there is a wizzard that makes it very simple.

    Then just put it in the footer area along with all your other links in a text menu.

    Look in your file manager/public_html folder (in your control panel) to make sure you actually published the page, pay close attention to the spelling and extension type.

    I have actually heard of your company before. Not sure the best way to go about that. Start a new thread asking about setting up a discount in Pay Pal. There are several others that are very good at E-Commerse stuff.

    By the way I looked at your form, you might want to change it so that you can get some of the users info, like their name and email and validate those fields so you will not get blank submissions.

    Very nice- colors are great.

    One comment- I don't know why but it bothers me a great deal when pages are not centered. (my type A personality). There is this big space on the right side. So my thought would be to center the pages.

    But again- very nice site.

    Cheers-

    is it uncentered cuz i've got the size of the page in the page properties too wide? I totally thought about that too, it not being centered and i didn't like it either but another thing is if i center it with the top n left framing wouldn't that look odd?..
    D'son.. are you talking about the form on the contact us page?

    if i center it with the top n left framing
    If you make the page width smaller and then center- all elements will be centered. Your statement above is not clear to me.

    the set up i am using has a distinct left side and top with the menu... like an L shaped template but i made it myself... what would a generic page width be?

    Its best to keep pages sizes under 1000, 980 is about the best.
