Hi guys, need a little c&c for my church website that I made which is here:
edit: getting re=designed again...
Thanks and also, I need a little help to decide where I want to put the content or rather text... I don't think I put enough room for it... Any ideas? I was thinking of making all the links set to blank so it will open up in a different window and then have a more simple design for the content... I dunno...

Really nice job... but a couple of major points to consider first...
1. If you want the site to be found in the Search Engines then you will ahve to have a site with text and not text via images. The Search Engines can read iamges but not what it looks like so unfortunately you'll have to enter a site for submission with text into the Search Engines if ya want it to get found.
2. ONLY links that are external should open into a new window. In other words, links that take the visitor away from the site the rest of the links sould open in the site design.
3. Put the text to the left of the screen where the text images are if you get my meaning - it'll mean that you ahve to play around with the layout etc first.
Good luck as you done a great job so far....
Thanks for the comments!
Well I redesigned it a bit... still need a few more kinks to get out before it's close to perfect... All links work, what do you guys think of how I added the content (text) in it? Too narrow? I don't think people will want to scroll down that much... sigh, anymore idea's guys?
You may have redesigned it but you haven't listened to me about the text as images... make the text as normal text...
it looks blessed jk but i does look nice, i think martins' got somthing there...
Very nice layout, but I agree with what Martin said. You need to cut down on the amount of graphics on the pages, not only for load time but for the search engines.
If you look at the pages on my own website (www.dcloud.com) you'll notice that while there are graphic elements used to make the design on the page the text itself is non-graphical.
By the way, I love the rollover effects. Just keep in mind load times. You don't need to make your pages too graphic intensive to get the "message" across.
Thanks guys, I'll get to it soon... Still trying to figure some other things out, goota please the Pastoral Staff ^__^
