This is my first html/css template designed to sell, and I hope to perfect it to the point that TF accepts it into their premier library! I need your help with revisions though. What should be added or changed, etc. etc.

The theme was retro. The layout was simplicity.

Behold: Retro-Simplicity ;)

Nice start. I think you should do a lot of padding throughout the whole content.

And I feel lost a little – think about guiding the visitor through different areas of the site. Also pay attention to the typography (contrast, size, color).

Good luck!

@YA Can you give me a specific example of something i should add padding to? Just to get an idea of what you mean. This would be a HUGE help.

Sure. I think that there is too little space between navigation and home blocks. Also the testimonial block needs some separation from the menu.

Try to pay attention to the line height of the text on the page.

Hope this helps.

@ YA Thanks. :) Now that I look at it you are definitely 100% correct about the testimonial block needing to be moved down.

Hi, I really like it! My only advice would be to remove the inner scroll bar. Let the layout flow down the page. I HATE inner scroll bars with a passion ;)

;) I’ll think about it. I was thinking maybe making it a JQuery scroll bar so it looks cleaner but you are probably right. Just do without it.

I also backup the ‘Lose the scrollbar’...

Make the page auto-adjust to the content (Not width, just height) it will make it look a lot better.
