    I've been busy the last couple of days putting a new site together.

    I just need to write a small fitting guide and it's done.

    Comments welcome

    I like it, really well laid out mini site and I like the colour scheme. On the fitting page, there appears to be missing information, as the text ends abruptly.

    Thanks for your comments,

    I have to finish that text for that page, I was hoping to be able to get some kind of sponsor for that page and get some unique copy from a supplier typed up.

    Looks like I'll have to do it myself tho.

    Did you do the design yourself? I see it's not Wordpress. Are you seeing much traffic? Also forgot to mention, I really like the calculator, nice touch.

    Two other points - I would replace the short URL you're using (tidd.ly I think) and also the direct links and use a simple php redirect, I guess most people wouldnt notice, but I like it when the links are from the site URL itself. Second, the Wickes dark wood and special offers link take me to the main Wickes page, I would expect to see dark wood and special offers when I click those links.

    Actually, thought of something else, the Getting Started link is to me more about benefits, the calculator page is to me more about getting started.

    Yes it's my own design/work. I've tried using wordpress in the past but found it easier to just make the thing from scratch for a small site like this.

    The site is rand new and has no natural traffic yet.

    I'm working on some PHP projects for another site, I think I'll have a look at these PHP re-directs you've mentioned.

    I'll look at changing the pages and have

    home - as is
    benfefits - current getting started page contents
    getting started - measuring, tools, suppliers
    calculator -as is
    fitting - add copy to finish

    Thanks for you critique

    p.s. the site stemmed from my diy laminate website

    Big difference between the sites, now I'm at uni learning design skills and I think it shows lol

    Thanks for the heads up on those php redirects.

    I've read the article and put them to use on a new site i'm working on.



    new site is North East Used Cars

    much appreciated, it does look at more professional.

    Your site is wonderful. You have an online calculator that enable customers to know how many pack of woods they need for their flooring. I think your customers will surely love this service.
