WEB Website I made for a school project

    We have to make a business and if we know how to make a website, it will help our grade. I used to mess with HTML and graphics in high school so my knowledge of web design is minimal so this is what I came up with...

    http://sikar.webs.com/index.htm

    FYI the business is a cigar bar named "sikar" which is the word in the Mayan language that means "smoking" or "tobacco" that the word cigar is derived from.

    I'm not done yet as I still need to add different sections, but any good ideas or feedback so far?

    not much there, in this form it looks like you spent 5-10 minutes on it.

    as for what is there, the images look pixelated like badly compressed low-color gifs

    As I said, my knowledge is limited and it's a school project. I understand everyone on OT is a master web designer that gets paid thousands of dollars per job, but for a quick school project from a newb, I was looking for some suggestions.

    I'm not looking to compete with expert websites and web designers, just to make something simple for school.

    if the teacher is an idiot i'd just modify a template...it'll be easier if you aren't that comfortable with the entire process and will save a lot of headaches/:kingtoad:'s

    It's actually a modification of this template...

    And yes I'm sure he's an idiot. It's a business class, not a web design class, and I think my group is the only one with a website.

    Well, you figure for some people, it is easier to just give them a template that has an alright design to it, and let them add the content. Not everyone is a website designer and it is like learning a new skill for him in a weekend... It's not a commercial project, so i don;t have a problem giving him a hand for free. we gotta help each other out on OT.

    Hopefully your prof doesn't google your web site address and find an interesting post in the public section of OT
