I am just trying to get my first site up and running but although it is far from finished i wonder if you kind people can see if it loads up ok with a 56bps modem as i have got b/b and you can not really tell. It is click here

Many Thanks

I am on Broad Band but spotted one common mistake a lot of people make. Resizing a huge image within the HTML.

In your case you have got a 472x461 pixel NFMW&GC Logo, which is some 58KB in size.

In about 1 minute I have managed to resize this in PSP to the size you wanted 125x122 pixels , reduced the palette to 16 colour 4bit and resaved it now is only 4kb saving some 50kb and an age in time for dial up users.

Thanks Agricola. I have got it down to 4.71kb. Is it a bit better now?

a button for the links page from the contact page.

I suggest that you change your page titles to reflect the content - you've still got the 'New Page 1' titles.

Thanks FE. Is it ok now? Also does the pages load fast enough?

and the site loaded very quickly - I liked the design, but the blue button to the left does look at bit odd. Also black on blue isn't too easy to read for those of us with less than 20/20 vision!

Thanks powertool. Good to know that it loaded ok. I will see if i can change the black text on the buttons to white. The button that you say that looks a bit odd, Is it the text box that i need to fill out yet below the buttons?

Sorry but i must be going mad. I have already got white letters on the buttons :0)
