    Where to buy Dillisk - www.dulseonline.co.uk


    I love Dulce (or Dillisk as I was always brought up to call it). Its a reddish seaweed from the Atlantic coast of Ireland, and when I was you we used to collect it at full moon, when the tide was lowest, and dry it on huge sheets in the garden.

    Now I live in the UK and had no idea how to buy Dillisk. I set up this site to provide information and recipes on Dillisk, and other Irish seaweeds like Carragheen Moss.

    Id appreciate any feedback:
    Overall design look and feel
    Is it easy to find what you want?
    Is there anything I could add to make it more useful?

    The site is at www.dulseonline.co.uk

    Many thanks

    Reminds me of a Joomla site actually. For your color scheme try using colors that are reminiscent of the scene you laid out for us in the beginning. Not saying you have to be literal about it (don't add a giant moon and a picture of the sea to the background- wayyyy too literal) but elude to it. Give us some of that freshness I'm imagining and the colors.

    Also see about moving your ads either out of your content area or to the bottom. Example this page =>http://www.dulseonline.co.uk/carrageen/
    You've got article text squished between an ad and a photo.

    @dominoman, do you like sushi? That is how I got hooked on seaweed but I've also had some pretty strange stuff in my travels.

    I'm not a big fan of presenting WP themes for critiques. That, and there are spelling and grammatical errors aplenty. After I found four or five, I stopped looking. I'll give you two for free: First, you spelled it Dulse or Dulce throughout the site. Pick the correct one and stick with it. Second, at once you use the form, "Dillisk (Dulse)," and then you use, "Dulse (Dillisk)." Again, pick one and stick with it. Perhaps explain early on that they are the same thing and use just one of them.

    Thanks for the critique. I've run it through a spell check now and yes, I hadnt picked those up.

    As for spelling Dulse in different ways, thats deliberate. Its not a mispelling, just a variation. The Irish spell it differently in different regions.

    Perhaps, 'While you read through this site, you'll notice that while I always use 'Dillisk,' there are regional variations which include, 'Dulse,' and 'Dulce.' For the sake of ease, I'll use (then choose one or the other.)

    Once you establish one, your end-user will get the idea.

    BTW: Dulce means 'sweet,' in Spanish. Maybe using 'Dulse,' might serve your purpose best.
