    Load times are long. Design is somewhat disjointed and off-putting.

    Main menu is effectively duplicated twice. You have main elements going to coming soon.

    How are you trying to drive traffic? Search engine? Some kind of advertising campaigns?

    Your menus are a little off as seen here.

    And you might want to decrease the sizes of your images.
    And your design is a bit too dark.

    And your website is very slow:

    What webhost you on?

    I see crocserve.com

    Log into your Cpanel and

    Click on php config [​IMG]

    Then turn on fastcgi [​IMG]

    Yeah i have no idea why but in internet explorer the layout disjoints, iv tried it in all other web browsers and its fine..

    You mean decreasing width and height? or file size of images? if so how would that help as the images at the moment fit perfect to the complex grid frame set by Dreamweaver based on the Photoshop slices.

    Yeah main traffic should be through search engines.

    Yep am on crocserve.com

    ----------

    doesn't give me options to click, when i go into the php config it just lists a load of info and says it it only changeable by the server admin...

    Phone your host and see if they will change it.
    Also see if they will turn on compression.

    And ita not just IE Firefox has the problem too.

    Compression decreases the overall size of your website by compressing it ,therefore, speeding your site up.

    Your website is down.

    ahh okay thanks, and yeah i'm going to switch to a different host.

    However how do i resolve the layout problem? when i view my website on all my browsers it appears fine, but on a windows computer it flicks out and dis-alignes from the complex grid. How do i stop this? any ideas?
    My website was done with Dreamweaver and PhotoShop both CS5.5

    I've made some fixes to my site, is it running faster now? and is it still making gaps between images like before?
