GeckoMecca is up and running

hey everyone i just built a website (i know it may be crude but what do i know about web design anyway) i kinda rushed it. ive got a lot of work to do still but was happy to have a navigatable site up.

i will likely need to have a site proffesionally built but untill then i hoped that i could get some input from anybody who cares to help.

ive got alot more animals to put up but just wanted to fine tune it some more.

Check it out

It's working for me. Looks pretty good, just one thing I noticed was the size of the images. The main header image is over 450k, which alone will take over 9 seconds on a 56k. Try reducing the size of the photos to the size it shows up on the page (it will help the size), and also you might try to save the images at a lower quality (if using paintshop choose "save for web", the program you're using should have a similiar option). Also, the links on the bottom of the front page and under the bottom two geckos on the available page don't work.

I do like the overall layout and color scheme, and the photos all look good (except for the file size). Looks like a nice start.

cool thanks,
i never considered the file size. ill work that out next.
i also seem to have a problem with the actual page sizes and the way they fit (some pages are way longer than they need.)

what should i "dumb" the quality down to and still have them look good?

For web images just make sure they are the same size that they will be displayed, and usually you'll save them as a JPEG at about 60-80% quality and they'll be fine for the web. I usually do 70% for most web images with good results.
