Yeah, finally, My Business Directory is finalized! Take a look.

  • I have a full admin panel
  • An Affiliate System, that counts click throughs and sales from an affiliate
  • An online advertising form, you can upload up to 10 pictures etc.. And pay straight away. I will then review and approve manually.
  • Hopefully a good looking template.
  • I'm proud of what I achieved.

It only needs, maybe, XHTML validation.. but I'm not sure if that is worth the time and work it requires.

I think it is quite finished. What do you think? I've been working months on it.
If I had to sell it, how much do you think I can sell it for?

You got about 33 errors on one page. But it looks OK in IE and FF, so it's probably fine to leave it.

Otherwise, looking good! The template's just slightly simple and crude, but it's probably appropriate for a formal site.

Looks good, about the same as last time you posted. I've never been a fan of that globe as the background though.

What form did you use to allow users to submit ads?

At least it stays in one place.

It's a formal site.. I don't think that heavy graphics are good for such sites.

You are kidding right? I added much more functionality, template was the same, but the functionality is a lot better.

I've never been a fan of that globe as the background though.

If I don't make that background it looks quite empty with all that white space.... You have any suggestions?
What do you mean, what form? I made that form myself, and used John's class (modified it a little bit) for the 10 extra images.

I am sorry to say, i thing you're design is really realy dated. it reminds me of layouts seen years ago.
Your design realy needs an update it would make all your effors come more to their rights.

Yes, it is exactly the same as it was, just added a few pages and some images in the affiliation center etc..

You are getting 500 internal server error because TP is moving servers.

I agree. The design and look of the site is not "professional" whatsoever. Look at how nice CodeCall looks. It doesn't need to be the glossy web 2.0 stuff, but you need a coherent layout (and definitely a new logo). Maybe a different color other than such a strong blue would help too. (I also agree with getting rid of the globe!)

Also, why use tables? This is bad HTML design. Better to do your layouts using CSS formatting.

Its also hard to tell off the bat what your webpage is about, what its purpose is, and why its different.

Just some tips.
