I have upgraded my site to an automated content management system. What do you think to the design as i'm not sure whether to change it or not?

Are you being naughty and spamming the list for your hosting company?

Your site is almost exactly the same design as the link to w#w.datalian.com/

An the the other link to a content management company

w#w.nukedit.com/

becuase the content management system is Nukedit so it probably would be a good idea to create my own design!

exactly mean by closed pages? Is it links linking to pages which are not the actual content to show visitors what is available when they sign-up or have i got the wrong end of the stick?

Yeh!!! I'll make a note of it and change it soon.
Thanks

I'll start planning this then!

On a more minor note, you could use more contrast between the title text and its background, and maybe a bigger font, to make it clearer and more impactful. Choose a colour scheme carefully, so that it doesn't overpower the site's content.

I have re-designed the whole site which now uses a variety of themes using the MWPX portal. There are a few little customisations left to do but what do you think.

Without registering you can gain access to articles but can only read some parts of the forums. There are also few other areas which require registration so I hope that this is the right of going about it!

Let me know what you think
Thanks

That's a big improvement - nice job. It matches my XP desktop theme now! I like the way that you have borrowed XP's own style - it's kind of appropriate for a computing-related website.

Firstly, the PC999 logo looks a bit basic and out of place on that elegant silver banner; it might benefit from a restyle, assuming that doesn't interfere with any corporate style that you might have developed (promotional material, for example)

Secondly, your own post about requesting writers has an apostrophe where there should not be one! I'm just nitpicking now, I know, but dodgy grammar really bugs me!

Obviously, it would matter less if it was someone else's post, since you would have little or no control over it (just as PCA doesn't spellcheck our posts here!) but make sure that you check any editorial or other material from the contributors that you're looking for.

Well done on the design work anyway. It looks worthy of a place in my bookmarks now!
