New site for construction company client

Posted 24 January 2013 - 08:11 AM

Hi guys, am doing a site for an old friend in wordpress and wanted to know what you thought about my custom theme..

url is secconstructionco.com or fixyourshorehouse.com both point to the same site


I wanted it to have a "beachy" feeling but I realize the gradients might be too much..

I still have to do the contact, special post listing and work gallery post listing pages but have some of the functionalty running.

Let me know what you think..

thanks!

None of the links work: Only the home page
The info displayed in the browser tab is "bootstrap 101 template" and not "SEC construction - Home" or something similar.
I like the colors and layout. It has a 'beachy' feel.

Hmm.. yeah.. those gradients are not good. I would almost advocate using a light paper texture in a different color.. like a light blue or something..

I know only the Home button on the Nav works but check the links in the footer, those are most recent posts for "specials" and the "gallery" . The specials is just a image and description while the gallery is a slideshow of images and description/text.

Yeah.. I gotta fix the title to be dynamic with whats being viewed but like I said it isn't finished.

I like the paper texture idea..maybe i'll look into that..if I can find it online - it'll make it look better in older IE versions as well ( because I'm using css3 gradients atm)

Not a fan of the gradient esp in the nav bar. The content part of the website is nice and the footer needs more work.
