I've just been checking out all the features of this forum, and I am IMPRESSED!

BIG TIME!

It could use some more clarity, but that's no biggie.

Well, for instance...it's not very intuitive to the new user. Very daunting, and I'm no PC idiot.

One finds onesself having to scrutinize the page from top to bottom to find what you're looking for

Also, I don't think the thread layout is ideal. There is a whole header seperating each post. Not only does it create more scrolling, but it leads to a disjointed feeling.

It may seem copycat, but having the user's name, info and avatar on the left will do much to alleviate this. It will also make it easier to find posts you're looking for.

I'll be hacking at the style sheets, and send an example page incorporating some of my ideas.

The buttons also get lost in the overall design.

Well, here's a little tutorial.

The layout and appearance of the HTML page is controlled with a separate document called a cascading style sheet. It contains stuff like fonts, colours, positioning and so on.

They not only give the designer a lot of power in designing the page (that completely transcends normal HTML), but also an easy way of updating a look and feel. The design of the page is not caught up in the HTML, but is central to the CSS document.
