    Plug n Play CMS

    Morning all. I last posted on here about my project about 2 or 3 months ago and had some good input thrown at me (harsh but fair) and now i have returned with a fresh and easy new layout.

    http://www.actwebdesigns.co.uk/web-d...-play-cms.html

    Is my kind of blog page for the Plug n Play CMS and on the left hand side under udates are 2 NEW videos and WITH audio.

    Please let me know what you think of my project, have been working on this for 18 hours a day for the last 14 months... im tired lol

    I'm curious. Why are you whispering in the demo videos?

    Anyway, the site is pretty easy on the eyes. I don't much care for the large colored quotes/blurbs at the top right of the content in each page but it's certainly not a deal breaker.

    The functionality seems pretty good. The lightbox used for video playing is fine for the text links to videos but I would not make the in-page player use this method. Users can bring that player to full size as and if they please when the player is in-page. I found it a bit off-putting that clicking on what looks like an in-page player ended up taking over the screen and loading the actual player. In this case I can't even maximize the player if I wanted to because the full-screen button has no functionality. The whole thing is listed as a place holder though so maybe you have plans to change this?

    Other than that I'd say it's pretty good.

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}

    Failed validation. Have a look back, something probably went wrong along the way and screwed it up.

    It's very pretty. I like it. I would recommend looking into Cufón for some advanced level stuff with good font smoothing, because I'm loving the logo type.

    Your favicon is pixelated. Instead of shrinking stuff down, try creating one from scratch.

    I don't particularly like your video interface. It doesn't fit in.
