    Hello,

    I have just released my first custom design for wordpress, and wonder if there is anyone out there wanting to give constructive critic to the design?

    The page is at hockleys.org

    Very nice job. Really can't offer any constructive criticism from an aesthetical perspective - at first glance I see nothing wrong with it.

    Only thing I can think off is using a meta tag plugin. All In One SEO Pack does the trick.

    Also: no sitemap, 404 page is dull.

    Other than that looks good.

    Hey, thanks for the input, true that I haven't thought about a 404 page or sitemap and I'll try the SEO pack, thanks again

    Really awesome! Great design! I especially love the footer at the end as well!

    One thing though - you might not want to say "Hopefully it is XHTML and CSS valid."

    ...Looks a little unprofessional. But other than that, awesome.

    Hey aimeeish and wunir, thanks so much for the encouragement...

    I took away the part you mentioned, I guess if I ever have some customers in the future, it would not be very professional as you say :-)

    I dig the design. I would suggest making the pics on the home page clickable. The first thing I wanted to do was click on the images to go to the article. Nice job.

    Hey fanderwald...thanks so much for the input. I actually tried to make the images clickable, but I have some png overlays, and to be clickable, they would have to be included in the "loop", which messes up the absolute positioning in different browsers, so I still have to figure out a way to do it...

    Any ideas? :-)

    The images are visible and large enough to not be viewed as a larger image. As long as you have a link to each gallery, I think your fine.

    Hey aimeesh!

    I think he meant on the front page, that clicking on the images would direct you to the related articles. :-)I will try to get rid of the png overlays somehow so that I can achieve this.
