    Critique my website please

    As the title suggests. Positives and negatives. Feel free to slag it off. Obviously its not THE best looking website and still has some blank pages but the brief was its needs to be easily updateable by anyone in school. Would love your opinions!

    I did it at 1024 width. Is it looking dodgy on your screen? What browser? Cheers

    As mentioned with this - In a smaller window (my laptop is 768 High). For the bulk of the information on the first page I would remove whitespace between twitter feed and also at the bottom. I personally would also reduce the image at the top of the screen to something slightly smaller.

    To my eye, the light green is a little too eye-straining to be comfortable.

    With my res at 16x12, everything is perfectly readable and no scaling problems.

    The slightly darker green of the shortcuts doesn't really make them stand out enough for my liking!

    Hope you're not too offended by what i've written, and please remember it's ONLY my opinion!!

    The top image is 1200px wide, and the CSS specifically sets the page width to 1200 too. Your screen resolution must be higher than you think it is!

    Do you mean horizontally or vertically? Cheers

    Correct. I have messed something up with that. Change of plan. Made the page scalable now so should adjust by itself.

    What dimensions for a header do you think anyone?

    Not too sure if it's intentional but on the Shorcuts menu the trolly image overlaps the text for 'Affiliate Shopping' - Personally I think it would look better if they were seperate with a bit of space between the text and trolley image.
