Web Hosting, Design, & Coding forum


PLEASE READ our GUIDELINES before posting!

by Sovereign Forum moderator / April 1, 2014 2:51 PM PDT

First and foremost, welcome to the web design & hosting forum! We hope to answer any and all questions with regard to web design and hosting, and if you have something to share with the community, please feel free to do so.

Before you dive in, however, there are just a couple of guidelines that we ask everyone follows:

1. Advertising & Spamming

Please refrain from posting advertisements or spam.

Messages promoting a service, business or website, will be removed, even if the poster attempts to embed the advertisement in a question or "helpful" advice. Linking to the same website, regardless of the page linked to, in one or multiple posts, across one or more CNET forums, in the body or signature of the post, constitutes as spamming, and those posts will also be removed.

2. Website Feedback

Asking for website feedback is OK, if additional details are provided.

If you own a website, asking for help or feedback is absolutely encouraged, but please provide as much information on what we should be looking for and, if possible, what you've tried that didn't work as expected. Posts that simply contain a link with no specifics, will be removed.

To help explain what we mean, here are a few examples:

GOOD: "We just built example.com, but would love some feedback on how it looks on a mobile device. Specifically, our menu feels clunky, but we were unable to figure out how to present 20 menu items on a small screen. Does anybody have any recommendations?"

GOOD: "I just launched example.com, but it's loading really slow. I'm caching images and page requests, and I'm using a content delivery network for media resources, but for some reason, my average page load is still between 7-8 seconds. What else can I do to improve speed?"

BAD: "Please review example.com."

BAD: "How do you like my website example.com?"

If you have any questions about anything stated here, please feel free to email me or any other moderator of the CNET forums.
