    I've never created a site before, so here's my first go-round. It is for a small adventure program I offer during the summer.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    The website looks nice, and the experience looks like fun. :)

    But, in my humble (and unprofessional) opinion, you should change the colour for the text of the tabs at the top of the site. They get 'lost' in the background.

    This is actually one of the better iWeb sites I've seen. A lot of the other ones look cookie-cutter ish. Nice job though. I do agree with welshandrew's comment on the tab colors though.

    As with every one, great site, it does not feel like a iWeb site :)

    You just need to fix the colour of the tabs at the top.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I actually played around a little with my own tabs, but I had trouble getting the links to work correctly. I used the default iWeb tabs, and as I understand it there is no easy way to change the color.

    As with most things in business, it's an ongoing process.

    I like the site, too, for all of the reasons mentioned above. I would suggest, though, that the photos where you've used "reflection" ought not to have a border around them. It seems like there is too large of a gap between the photo and the reflection, which I think takes away from what would otherwise be an appealing reflection effect. Alternatively, if you opt to keep the borders––to keep your work consistent with your page otherwise––I would abandon the reflection effect. Your call.

    Well, after a bit of searching, I've found a way around the navigation bar issue. Thanks to all for their input, I'd appreciate comments from others as well.

    i second bbergie in that the reflections only work when attached to the photo itself, else good work and keep it up.

    anyone here know if/how i can have an audio file play automatically when someone first visits my iweb site?

    I don't use iWeb much much, but how do you change the font for things where iWeb just makes text images with Helvetica? my mom's whole site uses American Typewriter, but the snippets on the blog entries page and navigation bar are Helvetica.
    sorry if the above post made no sense:p
