    Overall, I really like the site, but I've got just a few points:
    - on the homepage it might look better if the upcoming events box was in line with the latest news box
    - I feel like there should be something in the welcome to 1st Kendal box, other than just a picture. You've got pictures on the right!
    - I like your bit about the group's history but why should I join or volunteer or the 1st Kendal?
    - As far as I can see, none of the 'meet the team' profiles have any information on them
    - I don't really see why links is a sub page of news!

    Please take this as constructive criticism

    Hi

    [I][COLOR="#0000FF"]- on the homepage it might look better if the upcoming events box was in line with the latest news box[/COLOR][/I]

    done! :)

    [COLOR="#0000FF"][I]- I feel like there should be something in the welcome to 1st Kendal box, other than just a picture. You've got pictures on the right![/I][/COLOR]

    done, will be amended after discussion with the team

    [I][COLOR="#0000FF"][COLOR="#0000FF"][COLOR="#0000FF"][COLOR="#0000FF"][COLOR="#0000FF"]- I like your bit about the group's history but why should I join or volunteer or the 1st Kendal?[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR][/I]

    updated

    [COLOR="#0000FF"][I]- I don't really see why links is a sub page of news![/I][/COLOR]

    The location for the 'Links' tab was something we have discussed as a group, and felt it best to be under newsletters in case people needed directions, links for kit, info from scouts.org.uk - where would you have located it?

    Profiles are being updated as they come in

    Thanks for the feedback so far, much appreciated

    Liam

    Liam, if you put an image in the widget for the top-right box, this will show instead of the default.

    Nice job Liam

    Two observations - the panel box in the photo library div style: wppa-albumlist-(x) could do with being a percentage so it doesn't bash into the column on the right.

    And the image on the front page could easily be cropped top and bottom so it fits the frame and the ugly mugs of the guys in the pic will be easier to see.

    Thanks Don

    I have tried changing the photo size using the width in photo of the day but I don't know how to change any more than this unfortunately. It might look better without the box but again this is beyond my capabilities!

    I might try cropping th image, however as it's a photo of the day it is set to be from any of the albums on the site.
