The background image makes it impossible to read the menu, and the red stands out way too much on a grey background.

my site is correct xHTML and CSS, and i find it clean and effective.
Couldn't find new%20site so I looked through alpha new, new menu and such (you got to restrict access) and I'm really sorry to say the logo is horrendous, those backgrounds are not a pleasure to the eye and the page design isn't particularly attractive, inviting or functional as well. I would lay down the tools, take a step back and think about the purpose of the site, who you want to attract and what you want to convey? If this is a site focussing on ordering then you need to make it easy for them and have everything help them towards that goal, and nothing should distract from that. If this should be a site the whole family feels welcome at then you need to communicate that "warmth" (for obvious reasons showing smiling faces still works better than anything else,) warm colours, womens and kids area's, text should be written factual but "easy" and more "friendly" compared to shoppers sites where only cold facts like HW specs and price matter.

gotta agree about the background. Since your background is grey, its hard to look at some of the window images that are also grey.

i wish to know what people think about my site and the new super massive overhaul of it.


old: http://computer-tom.com


new: http://71.232.33.90/new%20menu

Your menus on the left overlap the main section.
There are many broken links on the new on and one on the old one.
Your site logo on the front page could be a lot smaller. I hate to have to scroll down a page just for a pic.
You also need to blend the different areas together. Each on seems like it is trying to do it's own thing. Each area should look like it fits into the scheme of the page.
To many off setting colors in the template of the page.

sorry about the broken links, forgot to tell you to just use the side menu (all links are on that for now)


also the old menu is crap i know, but i do like the new one :)



and could you specify which site is the one you find faults in thanks: computer_tom

I was talking about the new site for the most part.

I looked at the page source. I would set things up with tables. This would eliminate the menu overlapping the main page an such. Then use a css style sheet to assign the attributes to each sections layout.

The main thing with your site is, it looks like the puzzle pieces are just thrown on the table. They are not put together to fit.

Here is a basic 3 column table layout with some of your code in it. The width, height, alignment and such would go in the css style sheet. If you haven't used them, I would suggest looking into them. They let you do a lot of things with a page with less typing.
Code:

<html>
<head>
<title>Page Title</title>
</head>
<body>
  <table width="100%" border="1">
    <tr>
      <td align="center"><h1>Computer-Tom.com</h1></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>
        <table width="100%" border="1">
          <tr>
            <td width="15%" height="400" align="left" valign="top">
              <ul>
                <li class="there">Home</li>
                <li class="c2"><br /></li>
                <li><a href="tv.html" target="_top" title="TV">TV</a></li>
                <li><a href="tutorials.html" target="_top" title="Tutorials">Tutorials</a></li>
                <li><a href="reviews.html" target="_top" title="Hardware Reviews">Reviews</a></li>
                <li><a href="mailer.html" target="_top" title="Mail Form">Contact US</a></li>
              </ul>
            </td>
            <td width="70%" align="left" valign="top"><p>Main Body</p></td>
            <td width="15%" align="left" valign="top"><p>Right Side Menu</p></td>
        </tr>
        </table>
      </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td width="100%" align="center">
        <!-- BEGIN Universal Site Counter CODE BY Bpath -->
        <a href="http://counter.universal.bpath.com/statc.dll/M=296533&amp;S=un&amp;Counter=2"><img src="http://counter.universal.bpath.com/count.dll?M=296533&amp;S=un&amp;Counter=2" height="20" width="101" alt="Site Counter" border="0" ismap="ismap" /></a>
        <!-- END Site Counter CODE -->
      </td>
    </tr>
  </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

I just added borders to the code so you can see the different columns and such.

The table layout will allow your page to scale too.

I'd say it got deleted with a comment like that.
