Dunno, but to me, on firefox the jquery isn’t working, in IE8 it does, but in IE8 the drop down menu conflicts with the flash menu behind it, doesn’t do this in FF tho.
Hey i have spent quite a bit of time on it! ;p
I’m working on the header, currently, i’ll post when it’s sorted out.
I’ve reduced size of design now, is it worth finishing other pages and coding?
Is it to orange?
The gap between the header tags and paragraphs is too small, make the gaps the same size.
Maybe increase line height on the paragraph text also? Seems to close together, makes it hard to read. Might just need to be made darker tho or bigger tho.. Depends on how you want to approach it i guess.
I tihnk it’s a cool design man, nice stuff, i can’t comment as to whether it will be accepted tho as i dun have enough experience here.
If you want to copy, mod then resell, that’s fine, but a lot of people on here are pushing the limits of design, when someone comes up with a good idea to then have a thousand other people copy their idea willy nilly is a bit noobish imo.
I think it’s good that you can’t just sell similar themes as the whole market would be saturated with crap then all the traffic gets diluted between all the crappy themes on here, which means less traffic to honest people.
It’s a good thing they are strict tbh, it’s a harsh step to get over but once there it’s very rewarding, ( or at least it seems )
The extras you’ve put in are deffo adding to it.
I tried creating the site around the design this time over and i think i’m at least getting a bit better, completely my own ideas, it’s taken about 12-16 hours to refine it this much…
Icons are borrowed but that’s it, i can make some from scratch if needs be.
The image is 1600, and 1.5 meg, Check it out here, http://www.fight-factory.co.uk/newsite.jpg
I tried to be unique with this design, let me know your thoughts good or bad.
SOrry for double post but i took so long editing my last one i can no longer edit it !!! grr
Thought i’d give you an insight into what i’ve been doing, because, i have been in exact same place as you only 2 nights ago.
I had a theme rejected, then a design, so i decided to take a break from desiging and instead checked out the awsome sites recommended to me by the lovely people here on the forums, creatica, onepagelove etc..
I looked through the designs, had a indepth look, and then had another break. Reason being is that i’m a musciian and i find if i write music after i just listened to an album, it comes out sounding like the album i just listened to. That’s why i had a break, so i don’t directly copy any ideas i encounter, they go into the sub conciouss and when the ideas do surface they aren’t direct copies.
Also try to make the content integrated with the design so they are unified, whilst making sure that each information area stands apart from each other and make sure content is clear & easy to read etc.
