I'm in the process of putting together a website and need some help. I basicly need a few people to play around with the site and let me know what they think about the navigation of the site. There isnt much content on the site yet as I've been working on the structure a lot.

The URL is www.selfsufficientliving.com

Thanks

Looks good to me..... Nice clean design and simple to view, definitely a good approach.

Less clutter is ALWAYS preferrable...

The one thing that bugs me is that banner with the wolves heads on it...

It's REALLY blurry and distracts the hell out of my eye, plus makes it really difficult to look at the page as a whole. I'd get a clearer version, or just ditch it for something else altogether.

Beyond that, nicely done so far. Good luck with it.

Yeah I will have to see what I can do with that banner. Something cleaner would definately be nice.

I really appreciate the honest feedback.

Cleaned up the banner, that was an easier fix than I thought.

I'm on a 19" monitor at 1024x768 and I still have to scroll back and forth (horizontally) to view the entire page.

Other than that, it has a good look and is simple.

Saw this on the front page..

Saw some spelling errors, and made some personal suggestions..

-------------------
The objective of this site is to provider individuals and families with a source of information. There are many sites on the internet with lots of information. My (Our?) goal is to bring all that information together in one easy to navigate site.

(I dont think the first sentence is necessary.) I am not a nut who thinks everyone should pull themselves of the power grid and grow all their own food. I(We?) believed you should use all the conveniences that you have available to you but still be able to survice if they weren't available(2nd available necessary?).

Please be patient as I assemble content. If you have anything you would like published please let me know. I would be happy to give full credit and put your information on the site.

WoW! I'm a retard! I really should start proof reading things before I post them!


PS: If anyone has any content that they would like to add to the site let me know. I will give full credit to the creator.

Thats odd that you have to scroll back and forth. I will take a look at the site using lower resolution to see if I can duplicate what you are seeing. The site should fill your screen with no need to scroll at any resolution.

Nice design. Patty

*ETA* I would suggest that you use a bit darker font for the left hand margin navigation as it would be difficult to read for the above 40 crowd.
