Hey,
I would like someone to review http://keiran-smith.net It is a 100% custom CMS I coded using the code-igniter framework. I plan on releasing it as open source soon.

Thanks,
Keiran

Very cool! Really like the design and the layout!

Can't wait to see the code behind the custom CMS! Also have to say I like the "made on a mac" banner at the bottom right :P

Color scheme is great, I really liked the header. Once thing I would change however is make a more prominent footer.

Cheers

The made on a mac may be a tad much but that's personal.

Nice simple clean design that doesn't waste space and utilizes gradients quite well.

This may be just me being a bit picky but there are a lot of capital letters missing where they should be and it just seems out of place.

Overall I think it is a pretty nice layout. Your header kind of reminds me of the one on my website :P

I just done a massive overhaul on the blog category system. Working on updating the portfolio system and changing my wordpress mod system to opensource instead with categorization.

The pages in the nav bar need capital letters but apart from that it is very nice and slick.

EDIT :: also the CSS and XHTML are not valid so that needs fixing

Is this just me or does it look like it came from a template? Not a bad looking site though. A little boring for my taste, but it doesn't look bad :)
