    Right, I'm not going to go into the design, as im afraid its very dated, not the best and that is not my opinion, its just fact I'm afraid. I am a shoddy designer so I cant be too much of a critique, but I am however a knowledgeable coder and developer.

    You have no heading tags at all on the page, webdev wm, welcome and portfolio should all be headings. Distinguishable sectioning of the page is missing, "header", "footer", "section", "nav" tags.

    Use of space/layout on the page is lacking, i.e. you concentrated on your header soo much it feels like you skipped the rest of the page.

    Read up on typography, you've found a font you want to use (thats you choice) but you have used it on everything. Find another to run along side it thats easier on the eye.



    My first site portfolio site was a hell of a lot worse, and now I dont have one because of that lol.

    Keep goin and dont care too much about what folk say, its just an opinion but listen to folk who point out good coding practice and design tips.

    Err, the tags are not missing. I use a div-class (e.g. class=nav) with a div-class container. Each section is wrapped in 2 divs, which is wrapped up by a div-id, which is wrapped by the body. It's a page which doesn't require too much information, so it would seem ridiculous to use more than one column. Not going to force information on to the page just to cover less space.

    There is no 'rule' which states to use heading tags. I prefer to use <p> and then to customise the text from there. I don't see how I concentrated on the header. The header was created in Photoshop and is simply displayed at the top of the page. I appreciate the feedback but please realise that some of your statements regarding my design and coding is not true.

    Sorry mate but there are coding standards.

    quick one for headings:
    Heading Tags <h1>, <h2>, <h3>, <h4> as HTML Elements

    Its not about preferability, its about optimisation and standards.

    I have wrote code and plugins for Tesco Broadband, Tesco Mobile, Plenty, Cushelle (all the other SCA subs), Experian Property Check, Experian Credit Report plus many more blue chip companies. I'm not beating my chest, I'm giving advice from 10 years of experience in my profession, not a hobby.

    It's your choice to take on board advice or dismiss negative comments. But I would advise, from a man who has been down this road is to take on as much advise and information as you can from anyone, perform your own tests and analysis and then come back and tell them they're wrong.

    Good luck with your site mate.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'optimisation', I don't think it's the right context.

    I use Div classes and customise the text with CSS that way. It would have the same outcome either way.

    Style and structure are completely independent of each other.

    The tags that you use structure the page correctly, defining the content in which they encapsulate. This not only optimises the page for SEO, it is good practice and standards in understanding why.

    (another little read which you may find useful)
    Introduction to Semantic HTML


    There are many tags out there to choose from but new standards have come into play to help create semantic markup without class or id definitions.

    Code:
    <div class="navigation"></div>
    Code:
    <nav></nav>

    Code:
    <div id="header"></div>
    Code:
    <header></header>
    a div element is a "divide" of content but it does not explain well enough what that content is. The class or id is only a selector for styling. "header", "nav", "section", "article", "aside", "footer" and so on have been bought in over the years to create a more semantic legible markup for not only developers but for search engines such as Google.

    Have a dig around the web, see what you come up with.

    Good job, conleak. Since you are new to web design and you just coded in about 1 hour and a half, I think the work is beautiful, fashion and a little kawaii ^_^ If you can add more contents to this website, it would be better.
