I have created a website on quotations http://www.quotesforeveryone.com/
Could you please review it and let me know whatever suggestions, comments you have on design/contents or any other functionality I can add. I am in the process of adding content and it will grow day by day. Please let me know the innovative ways through which I can make my site more attractive.
I like your design, and don't like how quotes are displayed and I have few suggestions and comments for you:
You have a HTML5 doctype, while you use mixed tags from both HTML5 and HTML4, follow one standard not both, or change it back to HTML4:
If you use HTML5, this:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
should be changed to this:
That's hardcore, you need to create database of quotes, instead of doing this hardcore:
var myquotes = new Array();
var mytags=new Array();
myquotes = "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind."
mytags = "eye blind world fight"
myquotes = "In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on."
mytags="life learn word"
myquotes = "Necessity is the mother of invention."
mytags ="mother invent necessary"
myquotes = "Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect."
mytags="time reflect find inspiration"
myquotes = "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
mytags="food teach man fish inspiration"
myquotes = "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get."
mytags="life chocolate know"
/* More here ... */
mytags="convince confuse funny"
myquotes="Its not the fall that kills you.Its the sudden stop at the end."
mytags="kill stop end failure inspiration"
myquotes="In order to get loan,you first need to prove that you don’t need it."
Tables, wow, that's like old good 2000's, are people still creating markup with tables instead of blocks?
This website has impressed me, it even has a marquee:
document.write("Quote Of the Day :" +myquotes[pos]);
I wonder, what is the year of publication of the book that you read about HTML, like 2004?
You can look up for HTML5 tutorials, like here: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_intro.asp
Finishing review with picture:
The structure of the site in general is good but it seems that you put more effort on designing the homepage than the internal pages (which 'disappoint' a little in comparison)
I suggest you remove the 2 frames on the bottom side of the homepage (I didn't find them of particular interest). Personally, i'd prefer more white (instead ot the bubbly background, which is a little distracting)
It may be a good idea to use 'thematic' backgrounds (according to the type of page a visitor is on
Hope that helps
However I really appreciate the suggestions and will check on HTML5 material. and yes the two frames were temperory additions to track the traffic.
waiting for more comments from our other friends here.
I hope you're not offended by my critical critique, I'm getting too critical when it comes to "right" way and stuff related to HTML4 or improper way of doing something.
No not really till the time the comments are useful to improve my website:) I am using weebly website builder. what is the alternative way to store quotes online, I donot want to use actual database and my website builder doesnot support referring to any .xls file etc. I am using array currently and yes its a very bad design as preview of the page shows all array elements.How can I hide that from preview?
What do you mean by 'preview'? If you're talking about the JS code, then you can't hide the code, however, you can minimize or obfuscate your JS code.
Surprising Move on wordpress platform. Google loves wordpress & its very easy to understand. You can find very experts advices on web with very very useful plugins. Weebly platform is not very user friendly for Site. People knows very less about this platform. You can try WIX.com template as well they have very creative & seo friendly templates.
