Hi guys, wonder if people could check out my new website and give any constructive critisism as its always welcome. I do know that nealry all links are not working at present as there still remains a fair amount of work still to be done. My borther and I decided to dedicate this website to my mum who passed away on the 18th September 2010 to highlight her love of food. I hope you like the design and layout!

I'm really sorry for your loss Craig. What a lovely idea, making a site dedicated to your mum. I must say that you make some amazing sites, very impressive. The design and layout is great, and I really like the logo! I'll be keeping up on this as you continue to work on it... I do like to cook :)

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Thanks Emmy, I do try my best. I actually love to cook myself so thought this would be a good idea. Only got one recipe so far under starters and soups, even although there are 2 on the home page at the top but my brother hasnt sent me his cooking instructions for them yet lol. Will be updated on a constant basis especially at weekends.

Hi Craig. I am sorry to hear about that. Your website that you made is awesome! What template are you using? It doesn't even look like a Yolasite! (I know it is, I am just saying it looks so nice it doesn't look like a template available on Yola)

I agree with Emmy, it's a wonderful idea to dedicate that very nice looking website that you made to your mum.

I am sure you used custom HTML and CSS on your page to make all of that possible!

It looks great! I am sorry to here about your loss, Craig.

Sincerely,
Nathan

Hi Nathan, I am using the clean slate template and just inserting HTML and CSS to get it looking semi reasonable!

Your site really touched on a tender spot with me as my Mom passed away 3 years ago and she too had a very diverse cookbook which spanned some several hundred years in our family's Lithuanian culture.

I quite like your site's layout and design. Your gradient banner is something to remember for a future site of mine as I like it very much. All in all, you are on a great path and I can see your site be both a tool for your family to express their affection for a cherished loved one while at the same time be an avenue for many around the world to sample her cuisine. Great job. I will one day to come follow in your footsteps and create one for my Mom as well. Thanks for the drive you placed in me.

I would recommend that you consider the types of your font in your headings. While I too am quite partial to the Brush Script font it might not be on every computer out there. Think about using an image in the same font to show as the headers.

I particularly like your search box over your banner...

Great job Craig...

Truly amazing website and for such a great cause! It has to be one of the best Yola made websites that I have ever seen! Keep up the good work. :) I agree with Ed about the Brush Script headings.

I love the logo, shows great creativity and I also like the search bar at the top of the page. I am interested in your CSS boxes as I am looking into how to create them - so far I have had to use three images in the SiteBuilder as I do not know how to CSS! (www.mangopearmedia.com is the website).

I would also like to say that on my computer, (Windows 7 and Chrome) your first block on the homepage, the image is overlapping the box. You may also like to consider using a png image as the favicon - it'll give a transprent background. Apart from those two little problems/improvements, a truly amazing site!

Well Done and keep up the amazing work!

Andi

Hello Craig,

Nice work on the Site. I do like it. While I had come with a issue. While on the Home Page, Where the Most Recent Recepies are listed it Read More Link is not working.

Anyway apart from this I must say you had done lots of work on your site. Logo looks amazing with good templates. I would ask if you can change the font coz in Firfox its is looking somehat different.

If you not mind I will also link your site in website so you can have one Back Link to your website.

Craig, I am really sorry to hear about your Mother.

We are wih you always. Love to hear from you.

God Bless.

Thanks & Regards,
