    I like the site and the concept behind it. Please see suggestions / observations below;

    You probably know already, but your forum needs some work. It has no forum sections added to the forum, so visitors can't actually post in it. If you are not ready to get the forum up and running just yet, it might be a good idea to remove the link to the forum, from the other pages of the site.

    I feel that the site really needs an "About" page that explains the concept of the site, how it can benefit users and how they can add their property.

    An obvious link or graphic on every page to "Add your house" would help people get involved in the site and actually start using it.​

    Good luck with it.

    Hi Fergal

    Thanks for your observations and suggestions,

    The forum does have several sections i've just set them all to be dissabled to non registered people but i think i'm going to change that, i was wondering if anyone had any additional suggestions for sections that can be added in?

    I have added a "About Us" page it was already there i just hadn't added any info into it as i was wondering if i did need one but your point made it quite clear that i did :)

    I am trying to get my site designer to add the "Add Your Property" to the header so that it displays on each page,

    I know that there are lots of templates for phpbb forums but i have only ever had and worked with SMF so are there any people out there who has good experience with phpbb forums ??? that may be willing to lend me a hand doing a few edits ????

    There are lots of other pages but i am going to wait until the site goes live with promotion and a heavy google ads campaign

    ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS PLEASE?

    Thanks

    Brett.

    The design looks very nice to me. Your site has a professional layout brett. It looks simple and delightful with the Logo.

    All the best for your project!

    I see you have installed phpBB forum there bretttina. It would be better if you could change the theme to something nice and also put your logo of your site at the default phpBB logo.

    I have tried to do that but for some strange reason it seems to clash with my SSL certificate and it seems to stop working when i install a new style/template

    another suggestion, possibly change the order of the main links across the top of your page? contact us is usually always last.

    Bretttina you design website very neat and clean. My suggestion is if you do some more work on header part, specially on logo. Logo is important part in whole design. It should more interactive.

    You site looks good and the website design is pleasing as user's point of view. But i want to suggest you one thing that you have placed many pages and links just below your main menus in the header section. It's better if you can choose the most appropriate pages links in the header and move the other pages and their links in the footer section. It will be good as per the website design and from the SEO point of view as well. Also your website logo, which is a nice home" should have a hyperlink of your home page domain link.

    you site design is good but domain is looks like little bit spammy.
    So be safe in your off page.
