  1. I would like a critique on my new website

    I like the design, it is very clean. I can see your images load. After inspecting you use large images that you then resize. You should use a smaller image to increase performance.
  2. Evaluate my site for web design business

    Decided to stick to French. I'm focusing the local businesses.
  3. Evaluate my site for web design business

    I just updated my website at http://www.vchrisstudio.com/. What do you guys think? Does anyone have a version of IE8 non emulated? Can you test and let me know.
  4. Evaluate my site for web design business

    You're probably right about the header size once the scrolling has begun especially on a mobile device, I think it should be shrunken. I'm in the the process of changing the layout again. I'm thinking of switching to a one page layout with a bit less text. I've decided to focus on microsites, basically local small business and individuals websites. I'm a one man team so I can't created large time intensive web applications and websites, it'll take me months. I hate creating websites for myself, I'm a tough client. I'm thinking creating website packages is better for business since clients can have an idea of how much it will cost them all included. The only thing I'm having trouble with is getting enough clients. Maybe a blog on newbie stuff would help my Google ranking.
  5. I've been in the business for close to 10 years and re-designed the site a few times. I'd like to know as a perspective client what do you think of my site? (where/how things are places, pages, text) http://vchrisstudio.com/ Thanks
  6. New business site

    I've just updated my site with the new look and more description on the services I offer.
  7. New business site

    I have put so many hours in the development of this template. Too many if you ask me. I'm rarely happy with what I do but for once I love it! I'm looking into improving the site and will be adding to my services page. I've designed a new header but still not sure if I'll be going wordpress. Wordpress would make it easy to update and blog but I'd have to lose the bilingual feature. It would just be way too complicated to set up a bilingual wordpress tying with a bilingual bbpress. I might be sticking with CodeIgniter2. I also want to add a blog so I can get more visitors. The blog will be aimed at users who are new to websites (my clients), basically what are cms, wordpress, hosting, domain names... Maybe add a forum for questions. Since I added my quote form, I've been getting less request for quotes maybe because it's too long/complicated.
  8. From scratch - 4 hours - your thoughts?

    Nice work for 4 hours. Are your reviews from a database or static? Did you use PHP?
  9. Web application

    Me and my buddy want to take on a new web application project. We've been thinking of an invoicing system but there's already a lot of those already available. Is there any web application that you wish existed or existed but differently?
  10. New business site

    Hey guys, I just launched my new business website http://www.vchrisstudio.com. I do website design and development. It's built with the codeigniter 2 mvc framework and I put a lot of effort on the quote form so I stop getting general emails for web design which I can't answer because there isn't enough info. It saves me a lot of time with the clients.Let me know what you guys think.
  11. removing inner shadow of form elements?

    By default form elements don't have shadows. I'm guessing you have css that adds the shadows. Search for a background property for your form elements. Worst case add background-color: #FFFFFF; to your form elements.
  12. e-commerce solution / Magento?

    You don't really have to anymore. You can let paypal do the work for you. I believe they make 3% off every transaction or something like that, I'm not sure. You should look into how transactions with paypal work, it's less work than you think. Most of the themes you can download already have this stuff set up.
  13. Does anyone use Google adsence?

    I've used it before. It's a ppc (pay per click) program. You can make a lot depending on the clicks on get.
  14. e-commerce solution / Magento?

    I haven't really researched but I've seen some themes available. Some upthemes.com, there's probably a lot more.
  15. e-commerce solution / Magento?

    I developed an ecommerce website built on magento before and I find there's a big learning curve. It's most likely more than you need. Another ecommerce platform would be wordpress, nice and simple.
