    Hey, could someone please review my website which I made on my favourite music artist. I have worked hard on this website especially the gallery, forums and blog and I designed it myself.

    Lil Wayne is a rapper, rocker and an R&B star and my website is intended to bring you the latest news and gossip on him. We also bring you the latest photos, videos and music of him. We own a forum also where Lil Wayne fans can come and discuss about him. We hoped that we would be the number 1 place for Lil Wayne fans to come and get info on him and we think we have reached that goal now

    I would like someone to please review my design and layout on my website including the blog and forums (if possible). Also if you do catch any spelling mistakes, I would appreciate it if you let me know


    My website: http://www.lilwaynehq.com
    My Forum: http://www.lilwaynehq.com/forums
    My Blog: http://lilwaynehq.com/blog

    Thanks alot

    other then how sad i think he is.....

    your main site is nice. I also think you could greatly benefit from making these all one site, instead of 3 sister sites.

    The other 2 are okay but they are obvious templates, but nice looking.

    uh..... all one design. So you don't jump pages when going from blog to forum to main page. it also makes it hard to navigate without pressing the back button!

    I like the looks of the site, and just agree that it should be one design. Once I got to the blog, I coudl not easily find my way back to HQ.

    Ok, thanks

    I'm actually thinking about making my website the blog, so everything is the blog and then you can go the forums.

    Anyone think that is a better idea?

    Thanks

    You should use some kind of content management system or portal script to combine the forum, blog, and main site into 1 site all with the same design and same navigation menu.

    Ok, I think WordPress has some plugins for Forums. As for making a static page your main page you should make a specific template for your static home page, and set the page to as the home page in Admin>Settings>Reading. You should also Exclude the page from the navigation so it doesn't appear twice, and create a page called Blog to be used as the new Blog page.

    I don't quite get you, but this is going to be my new design: http://www.danielmousdell.com/blog and when you go to www.lilwaynehq.com, it will show the blog's main page

    so tere will be no main website with a blog and forums now, it will just be a blog with a forums page
