New website - comments welcomed!

Hi,

As an initial stab at some Linux based web development I have created a website called Tip Top Ideas at http://www.tiptopideas.co.uk and would appreciate your comments.

The site was developed on Ubuntu 5.04 in PHP4 with a MySQL4 database (my host only support v4 of each). I have tried to use CSS layouts which has been an education but ultimately rewarding. I have found Quanta to be a very usable development environment for PHP.

As a programmer design isn't my strong point but hopefully I have produced something that is functional yet reasonably pleasing to the eye. Any feedback is appreciated.

Cheers.

Chimp, that is a very well-done site with a clean and functional design; the colours are a good balance, too.

Have you thought about adding a comment feature for others to make comments on ideas?

Nice! Here's a Top Tip: two rubber bands, tied together, make an ideal 'bungee' rope for hamsters.

and if you paint ping-pong ball halves with shiney enamel model paints, they can use them as hard-hats and go abseiling with boot laces...

I like the design. Looks clean and easy to follow.
I cannot deny anything that I did not say.

Many thanks for your comments folks. Good to hear it sounds like I'm on the right track. Oh and if anyone wants to do me a favour and bookmark the site on del.icio.us then please feel free... :)

Mike/Alloydog - thanks for the tips. I think I'll save these for my next site which coincidentally is named www.bungeeforhamsters.com
:lol:

Nice site. Had a good laugh at some of bonkers tips.

It doesn't render properly in Konqueror though, the Home Login/Register Browse section is messed up. I don't know if this is your fault or Konqueror's. (version 3.4.2). It looks fine in Firefox.
