Thanks so much for looking at my website and sharing your valuable insights about it. It has taken me a long time to return the favor, as we are in the process of redeveloping our site with a new platform. I have to say your notes about the site, and after looking at your site as well, inspired me tremendously and I implemented some of your input right away. The bummer of it, is that we need a system to be able to do online subscription memberships, so I have to leave all my work that I did on iweb. For those who are starting out, I want to encourage them, as www.dancesportplace.com
was the first site I've done and did it with iweb. I learned a lot about about how to make things work and also how I want my new site to work. I must say I really miss the ease of use of iweb and also the ability to design and create, which I don't have now. But I needed the backend organization.
For those whom it will help, I want to make a few notes on things about Marcello and Richard (earlier review) commented on that helped a lot:
First, I really wanted to make the site wider, but didn't know how to do it--thanks Marcello for the insight about it--I discover how to do it. Go to the inspector-page-layout-content width (maybe everyone knows that, but I didn't and Marcello's comment filled me in that it was possible.)
Richard commented about the mirror reflections on the photos, which I agree were bad, but I didn't know how to change them. Upon fiddling around with those, I discovered that you could also make borders around pictures, which was cool and made them stand out more. inspector-image-stroke. Can't remember how I got rid of the reflections, but it is possible to do so.
I agreed with both of them that the navigation and page organization was a little confusing and redundant. I haven't fixed this on my iweb site that is still live, but am resolving it on my new site. However, I did figure out how to make the navigation on the left side, which looks a lot easier to navigate and cleaner. I changed it on a few of my pages, but not all, since I've stopped working on it to concentrate on the new one.
Working with iweb on this site makes has made it easier for me to ask right questions about what I want in the new site we're creating. Thanks to both of the reviews of my site. Your comments spurned me to discover more and make my site better.
