Honest Review and Feedback required

  • Anonymous


    Been working on couple of sites lately, and this appears to be my latest (Not mine exactltly)

    Looking for honest and real reviews or opinions. Don’t worry about being negative, as a matter of fact, I’d prefer the negative ones.

    it’s an entertainment site with rough;y 5,000 pv. daily.

    So be honest, what do you think of this site?


    seo-wise, design-wise, layout, and first impression?



    Increase the z-index value of facebook, twitter, RSS icons. It hides behind the content area (Not an issue when viewed on widescreen monitors)

    Items in header menu bar looks heavily.

    Try to change the widget h3 top and bottom gradients.

    Consider using WP PageNavi Style plugin for styling Wp-PageNavi



    Thanks @Prassanna,

    Don’t know how to change the z-index lol dont even know what that is.

    So, You want me to reduce the number of links on the navigation menu?

    And what do you mean by changing the widget h3 top and bottom gradients.

    I’ve styled the page-navi as suggested.

    Thanks for your time.



    I’ve Cut down on the number of links on the menu. Now what do you think?

    When embeding Youtube videos, try using the WordPress oEmbed feature. That way, the theme will automatically adjust the video width to fit the width of the content area.


    Also, try applying a dark colour as the box shadow for the widgets. Something like this:

    .sidebar div.sidebar-wrap {
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 5px #000;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 5px #000;
    box-shadow: 0 0 5px #000;

    I do still think there’s just too many items in the navigation menu still. It’s difficult to distinguish the major sections of your site’s content at first glance. Try grouping some into a dropdown menu, or move some into the secondary menu.



    Thanks for the feedback @syahir

    I’ve done exactly as instructed. Also moved the search bar down to the sidebar.

    I was using smart youtube plugin which kinda messes up the site at times… Thanks I’ll stick with the Oembed feature.

    I can say it look so much better than what it was earlier.

    Very Much appreciated.

    I’ve also added khairul-syahir.com to my little directory […/directory]



    @Prasanna I’ve now Increased the z-index the social icons 🙂

    Any more suggestions?
