Hello,

I have just made this quick 1 page site for a client.

Tell me what you think and any ideas you have to improve it.

It's 'cleanslate' template before anyone asks.

Thanks - Lee.

Hi UK Duke

Thanks for sharing your site. I like the clean, simple look. I also like the slideshow which shows the products really well (even though I am vegetarian...lol!)

The only thing is that the middle column at the bottom is slightly longer than the rest and looks a bit 'untidy'. If you can get it fit in, then the site will be awesome and so simple.

I like it! :)

Hi UK Duke!

Good job on your website! How did you get the slide show thing at the top? I have always wanted to know how you do that with the slider and stuff! Good job!

Kind regards,
Nathan

The slider is a mix of javascript and jquery (and css) It's a nice one,I just moved the styles default banner out of the way to get it in.

Also, you could set up the 3 columns to be the same length so they are all even like Nazlie said. Other than that your website rocks! The content inside the columns can be the same, just the column's white background that should be lined up. But, I like it!

Also, how did you get that Feedback lightbox to fade in and out? It looks nice! Did you use the lightbox code I created and added extra features or did you get it some where else?

It's a script I've had for ages , its called facebox. Can you bring up other pages with the one you use?

The lightbox I am talking about is the one on my website, here is my website to look at it: http://www.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc Just click the "Click here!" link under "Subscribe to our newsletter" in the red box. But, they both are not the same. Also, can you provide me with the website you used to get facebox? Or did you forget what website it was?

Pasties are really good, Callum I agree 100% Cornish Pasties are the ultimate but let's not forget cheese and onion (for you Nazile) and corned beef (sound bad, tastes great) -- I should make a site about pasties :)

Hi Lee!

All I have to say is WOW! Beautiful site. I can tell you've done some pretty advanced things to get the look of the style... very impressive :)

thanks Emmy, There's a css battle going on that's for sure :) As a testament to Yola it's only taken a day and a bit to make it.

Do 1 page sites get featured? hint hint.

haha! A battle to be King of the CSS :) I don't know why a 1 page site couldn't be featured, will put it on the list of possibilities. Can I ask why it is only one page? Seems like the site could branch out a bit. And coming from the SEO side of things a one page site will have a harder time in the search engines.

100% agree, It could and it would but it's a weekend job - The meter ran out a few hours ago :) I've set them up a twitter account and a page at Yola and shown them how to upload photos (with the same name) into the slider. A customisable on-line brochure site.

Gotcha :) Maybe give them the link to the Optimizing your site for local search tutorial as it looks like they provide services to a geographic area. I bet they are happy with their site!
