A quick review

Hi

I'm looking for an honest opinion on our site, I was left with running the site after are main coder left. I knew nothing about how our forum worked (in the back ground) only seven months ago. With the help of some guys on here and plenty of reading I think I'm finally getting the hang of it.

Any comments good or bad I'd like to hear them.

Your body css link attribute is current set at color: #01203D --- that's a dark color and blends into your background. You should change it to #ffffff to match the rest of the footer text.

Anyway - not bad. The style looks a bit dated, but it's custom and nicer than a lot of other vB 4.x forums I've seen lately.

You do have a code issue though in the main forum index "Last Post" section:



Anyway - good job!

Thanks J for the good feed back and detailed post. Any tips on what's wrong with the forum index last post would be a great help.

Could you point me to some good examples of a clean and more pleasing on the eye look?
