    just quickly glancing through it I noticed that the Documents page did not work or the "Design by" link at the bottom "nodethirtythree" was a 404 page.

    Looks good though ... best of luck with your presentation.

    It seems to have some issues on my IE (8.0.7600.16385). The menu doesn't seem to center properly vertically and flows off the right of the screen. The link in the "Latest News" section runs out of the box and the two columns in the body have no gutter.

    Ah that joy that are browsers.

    Good site, great even.

    I like the RSS Feed animation, classy.

    On Documents, don't make the links different colors.

    I personally don't like weird youtube, twitter, etc. buttons at the bottom, just go with classic with some rounded edges.

    This
    "This is our Blog, we will try and keep this up-to-date as much as possible for you to read. "
    is superfluous, and distracting.

    The DofE awards, again, no multi-color.

    Just little things, overall it's excellent.

    Thanks for the feedback!:)

    What do you think of the colors for the RSS feed? I'm not sure...?

    I shall look at changing the colors:)

    I have been looking at changing the logos...

    thanks!:) all your feedback has been taken on board.

    My 2 cents:

    Seems redundant to have the name of the site and the logo at the top. Why not just have either or?

    Remove the border around the RSS feed icon.

    Add some margin to the "click here" buttons in the sidebar. If you created these buttons, I'd de emphasize the "click here" and make the relevant text bigger.

    Under "Useful Websites", I'd resize the logos to be similarly sized, since they're all different widths, change the heights to be all the same.

    I like the entire color scheme, (unless otherwise stated), very earthy.

    Moving Social Media Icons

    I've been thinking of moving the social media buttons up to the bottom right hand corner, BUT on the white space.....

    or am i better leaving them...?

    Opinions...?:)

    Looks good.

    Mail icon (bottom) is not linked.

    Page heading might need more description for search engines (instead of "Home")

    What did you use for twitter feed?

    Thanks:)

    I was just testing that logo at the moment:)

    For the twitter feed... do you mean the ones on the Blog/DofE News Page?
