Craig great site, I think you should add a blog that way you can always keep your readers informed of new information. Plus having a blog is the best way to get targeted traffic to your website.

here is my blog that has benefits about blogging on Yola. http://www.yolablogger.com

Thnx mate, you can either do it by selecting colors when you select the template, or change the background color with coding..
<!-- <HTML>

<Head>
<title></title>
</head>
<Body bgcolor = black> -->

remove the <!--- and --> from the start and end of the code.
Cheers

Hi Craig

It looks like you've already put in a lot of work into your site! I agree with the above comments regarding the caricature sketches - they're great! It really helps to add that visual element to your site.

Although I do have a few suggestions which I will list below, please keep in mind that you need to do what is right for you and your site. =)

1. Homepage
- There is a lot of writing on your homepage. I would encourage you to break it up a bit to help keep the visitors' interest. I noticed that you have a whole section on how your email fantasy football works. I would put this section on a new page and give it title like "How it works".

- Your contact email get lost in the midst of all that writing. My suggestion would be to create a contact email page. This way contact information will always be available on the menu bar no matter what page the visitor is on.

2. Sign up form
- I like the scrolling message bar at the top!

- When I clicked on "need assistance with this form", it took me a page that said "Sorry, the person responsible for this form has not provided any contact information." - I'm sure that this is a page you're still working on. Just wanted to bring it to your attention. =)

3. Fixtures/Results
- I found the font slightly difficult to read. Perhaps you could consider using different font face or may just increasing the font size so that it's a little more readable.

The last thing I would add is a favicon! =)

I wish you every success with this venture of yours. Please don't hesitate to ask for further clarification if needed.

Hi littleus, thanks very much for all your suggestions I will certainly make alot of those changes you have mentioned, been working on it for a few weeks so all suggesions are very welcome. Was trying to get a latest section at the top of the home page but the layout does not have a 1 3 1 section to do this which is a pity!!

As an alternative... you could use a 1 column layout. Then you can drag a two column widget over from the right-hand side, under Content. Then, drag another 2-column widget over and place inside one of the columns. This will create your 3 columns. You can drag the middle bar around to accommodate the width as desired. Then, you can drag your HTML or Text or Image widget inside one of the columns. You can also drag your HTML, Text or Image widget and place over top and underneath the 3 columns you just made to simulate the 1 3 1 layout.

Hi Craig.. I'm not sure I understand what you mean about your latest news headline stationary. Can you give a bit more detail about the issue may be and perhaps I can come up with some ideas.

the scrolling text has the words "LATEST NEWS" before the actual news, if I could get the latest news as a stationary word and then the scrolling text coming towards those two words without having to add any more text boxes etc!!

In your HTML widget, just before the scrolling marquee code, you should be able to type in LATEST NEWS. Then, add your scrolling marquee after that. For example: LATEST NEWS<marquee behavior="scroll" direction="left" SCROLLAMOUNT="2"><font size="3" face="Times new roman" color="black"><b>BRAND NEW PLAY BY E-MAIL WEBSITE, ALL LATEST NEWS FEEDS WILL BE DISPLAYED HERE!!!</b></font></marquee>

The "LATEST NEWS" will not be on the same line though as your scrolling marquee. You can change the font color, size as stated earlier in your post.

Otherwise, you can drag a two-column widget over. Then in the left-hand column, drag a text box into it and type in "Latest News", then in the right-hand column, drag your HTML box over and paste in the code.
