I've been hard at work on one of my new site's.
It is part of a much bigger travel website and there is still quite
a bit of work to do. (banners, backgrounds, links, contacts etc.)

In the mean time, I thought I'll share what I've done so far and
try and get some feedback... and hits of course ;-)

It's a community based website and where better to start than with
the area I live in. Oh.... and Monique btw.

Tell me what you think: http://www.helderberg.cc/

That's very strange Alex. I tested it on my site with your sport page coding. The welcome back thing showed up just below your banner and above the
Yola footer.

Here's the site: http://sitebuilder.yola.com/sites/D73...

In firefox go to tools, options then content. See if javascript is enabled or not. I don't know how to in Internet Explorer.

Hi Boomer - i had a little idea today seemed to work out good - i added my site to the wikipedia page for hexham - i managed to slide it in at the top of this list - go see - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexham -- i dont know if this is ok but it seemed to work so...

I would reccommend you do the same - its a good quality google link.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helderberg > edit page.> you know the rest.

I also wanted to say thanks for the link you gave me above - i have started to use the script on my site- go see http://hexham.info/places

Thanks for the great link tip Lee,
I will definitely submit my site to wikipedia. There's just a few things I would like to change first. Soon....soon.

Your site has come a long way and is really looking very professional at the moment. Keep up the good work buddy. It's going to pay off, I can see it.

your welcome - I wish i had more time to work on my site, im doing an exam very soon so im trying to get all that remembered - my to do list is full :) - im loving the fade script, thanks again, when you have more than one it becomes interesting, when they fade they need to be in somekind of rhythm with each other, if you set them all off at different times its a bit like fireworks going off, i'm about to try a mexican wave effect see how that goes.

I LIKE!! Very nice indeed... I only wish the top image wasn't so long... Takes up quite a bit of the page, but that's the design template... Excellent Site!

Would LOVE some feedback on my websites
http://www.myhandbagenvy.com
http://www.loveinspiredpurses.com

I have looked at some of your sites and see somethings I would like to add to mine! I do not know why I didn't look at GS before my hours on my sites! Any ideas will be greatly appreciated since I'm not very savvy at this :)

Hey Alisa, The myhandbagenvy site is really cute, I myself have never seen that template... hmmmm
For the loveinspired... site Do you want to make your own paypal buttons, and do you want the black template, I think people shop better in brighter stores, I don't feel like shopping when I enter for some reason.... you could add a lighter colored table and put your items in it if you like (this is only my opinion)... It's your store! lol Nice sites Alisa... : )

Thank you that is the advice I am seeking :) When you look at something for so long you do not notice the obvious that the user would.
Thanks again
