    I am a beginner but I will like to make a couple of comments.

    1. Congratulations on your hard work

    2. I think your header will do better without the rollover color or at least change it to something light in the same color spectrum

    3. I am not good with colors but I will consider using a different background color if it were my site.

    Hope this helps

    You are welcome. I just finished installing WAMP and WP locally. I see my pages/links but the links come up with a 404 error. I might ask you for help if I can't get it to work. This thing is not easy. This is my first attempt.

    Thanks esmi. I blame it on being new and I am beginning to take note of the various folders and structure. Yesterday was my first day. Will do things the right way.

    Just to let you all know I finally managed to get something going with a free WP account. The site is [Link removed]
    Will appreciate a review, the whole thing is fictitious but I just wanted to have a better grasp of things.

    @Tassie Your site is so very interesting but I'm gonna give you my honest opinion and I hope you don't mind. I tried to read it several times and the big characters are very tiring for my eyes. Have you tried to use different fonts size? From what I heard Georgia and Verdana 12-14 are the most popular ones and keep the readers on the page.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Actually, I never even thought about fonts and sizes. Most of the stuff was taken from other websites, adding flesh to the skeleton. I will keep that in mind but most of them seem to be under 14 except for the headlines. Not too sure if it has to do with your screen resolution but I will take another look at work on multiple monitors tomorrow. As they say, he who does not listen to others 'learneth' not.
    Thanks again.

    Hi GabrielaH Appreciate your comments re font size.. I actually made them larger as I thought it would be easier to read, but point taken. I think acboy thought you were talking about his fonts (or am I wrong?) I updated it only last night as it took me HOURS to find out by experiment how to change fonts, size and colours. When I get my strength back I will have a look at alternatives, have lots of time as it is still in experimental stage. I like the fonts on your site especially as it is a business site. But must tell you the font in your page heading I really hate.......BORING LOL sorry :-)
    Your colours are great, very appealing and attracting.
    Watch this space as I play "-)

    You might also want to check out my home site which I have had up for a while. Made using Artisteer Danson Park

    I hope Admin does not charge by the space used LOL

    Your website has wonderful articles. It is very content rich and, IMHO very intense.
    About website aesthetics:
    1) Give a relevant header (with image or artwork, something to make visitors think and imagine)
    2) Give a darker body background, just subtle enough to give emphasis to body content
    3) Align and set menubar background horizontal width to match the body content text start and sidebar width end
    3) Increase line-spacing in articles
    4) Bold words or sentence in article only if it is absolutely important. Bold it with grey or any lighter color if necessary
    5) Increase vertical space between links on sidebar. It will help give emphasis to each link
    6) Center footer links and copyright info

    I have bookmarked your site. It has great articles to my liking. :)

    Thanks for the feedback itsnotstalking. Yes I appreciate there is a lot of colour used, I tried to use a different font colour for each country. I also went that way to give the site a "happy" feel but point taken :-)

    And thanks also praveen comments appreciated. My problem is that I am a newbie on this and am VERY WARY of playing around in the editor as I changed something once and lost everything. Had to go to my Guru to get me back on again :-(
    Re items 3,4,5 I will cautiously try that. (Fingers crossed) I don't want to "break it", it has taken many hours of mucking around in the back end.. One small step at a time LOL
    I think I can work the other bits out and will have a re-look at the whole thing with sunglasses on LOL Thanks again all.

    @Tassie, Thank you, I know what you mean, I actually haven't decided where exactly I want to go with that site.A customized logo will come soon.
    @praveen68 You are a gem!! Thank youfor all your observations. By the way , do you know how to increase line-spacing for a Flexibility theme? I'm not very good in HTML, not sure how to work in Editor. Cheers!

    @GabrielaH For linespacing

    .postwrap p {
        line-height: 1.5em;
    }

    You can adjust the line-height 1.5em to suit your need. It is better to keep in em as it scales well in different monitor resolution.

    You have used font-family (stack): Georgia,Arial,sans-serif
    Font being rendered: Georgia
    font-size: 14px
    line-height: 1.29em (18px)

    BTW, thanks for the compliment. :-)

    WC, btw if you want to set menubar width replace #nav to this css

    #nav {
        background: url("images/navsfbg.png") repeat scroll left top #642EFE;
        border-bottom: 50px solid #FFFFFF;
        margin: 10px 0 15px 20px;
        padding-left: 8px;
        width: 926px;

    Just a suggestion :-)
