    Wifeee.com & Wifeee.com/mivo Review

    hey...

    I have 2 bits of my site for you to review.
    The first one is

    http://www.wifeee.com/
    and then the forums
    http://www.wifeee.com/mivo

    I want you to review design, code, accessibility and usability.
    Design being the major point.

    Any other comments are welcome!

    The 'width' for #wrapper causes the layout go off the #container. (FF)
    Removing it fixes the layout issue.
    #wrapper {css.php (line 427)
    background:#FFFFFF none repeat scroll 0%;
    border:2px solid #FFFFFF;
    height:auto;
    margin:0px auto;
    width:800px;
    }

    Funny you should post this, because yesterday, I went on wifeee.com. I think you took LOADS of our criticism into account from your last review and I am really impressed.

    1 bad point though:

    The poll doesn't have a submit button



    Oh, and about the Forums, do you mind putting a link somewhere on the Forums that takes you back to the site? It really annoys me when I have to do it manually.

    The Poll: It's ran using AJAX, once an option is clicked, your vote is submitted.
    Forums: Will do

    The poll really should have a submit button, though. It's confusing to users and even worse to those not using a traditional web browser, whose votes cannot be counted and screen readers may even automatically trigger a "yes" as the radio button recieves focus. The AJAX is used appropriately and is in place, but just trigger it by a submit button instead.

    It is a massive improvement and I'm glad to see you coming along so well. But there is still room to get better. For example, the orange ordered list is too small to read and seems out of place. The links in your footer are using browser defaults.

    And your style needs improvement. I can spot numerous grammar errors and your punctuation is rather random. And use apostrophes properly if you want to be taken seriously.

    One more thing: don't be scared to use hyperlinks. The way you've written means people have to manually do it. They'd be useful for links to the store pages for The Sims from Amazon and EA Sports in the second-top post, and for the navigation to the forums in the very last. And never put links which you have to type yourself: they're just irritating.

    Wow. Thanks for that post.
    I have taken consideration and have decided to scrap the poll... for now...

    As far as style goes... I Am currently updating to v1.3 of the site. So your points will be taken and put into the new version

    Hyperlinks: I don't quite get what you mean by this... I didn't really understand what you meant...

    I though that after I looked at the source code. But it's not working for me! When I click on an option it selects it and nothing happens.

    What they mean by the hyperlinks is make the links in your posts actually go somewhere rather than having the user copy and paste the links manually.

    Your navigation needs to stand out more. I barely noticed it.

    Your "Unique" hits thing isn't counting unique hits at all. I reloaded the page and the counter went up.

    Thanks Aerospace, do you (or anyone else) have suggestions for the navigation?

    Maybe turn them into big buttons with a nice rollover?

    Oh by the way, your spore countdown is wrong. It's:
