i wonder what did i do wrong?
the link works, in 13 days 24 users looked at the site and no reviews?

what did i do wrong?
is it because the site is in german?
is it coded so badly that it doesn't deserve a review?

Must have missed it somehow... Or seen it and thought I would come back to it and then forgotten about it

The layout is good. Simple and 'efficent'. The colors are nice as well, except the yellow/orange is a bit to bright when you use in in the text as you do in the 'Leistungsprofil'. It doesn't really fit in there imo, maybe try to make it a bit lighter so if fades easier into the white background?

There is one thing about the menu that could be improved. When the user is on e.g the 'Leistungsprofil' page the 'Leistungsprofil' link should look somewhat different than the others and it shouldn't be a link since the page won't change when the user clicks it.

You might also consider using a darker white color for the text background. Doesn't have to be much difference, but I know that my eyes start to hurt when I read long article using black text on a white background. Doubt it will be problem if you don't have any more text than you have now, but if you add a lot more you should think about it.

I was going to review it, but couldn't say much about it. I liked it all pretty much, looked nice, clean, professional, fairly well coded. Only bit I noticed and didn't like was where you used lots of border styles all at once, dashed narrow and thick, overkill in my opinion.

For some reason, the Kontakt roll-over does not turn orange like the rest of them.

I think the white and the dark blue are too contrasting. Hmm.. actually, maybe not... The contrast with the white here is very powerful but it's not being used properly except for the middle content block. Where your using white for the borders only distracts from the contents of that block. Try using a lighter background colour inside those boxes, that should pick things up a bit.

You should also set the CSS display value of the menu elements (on a <a> elements) to block so they the whole area (including the background and any padding you add to it) will trigger the hyperlink instead of it only being triggered when the mouse is actually over the text itself.

Appart form that I think it's fine. Nice and clean.

Clean and simple, which is good. I have to say, though, that I find it a bit difficult to look at. I think it's the pure white on blue. Maybe something a little bit softer, like a grey or a shade of light blue? Just a suggestion.

Other than that, I like it.

thanx for the input everybody!

i've updated the site this morning and made some changes to the things pointed out.
feel free to have a look at the site again.

The style of the a tag in the navigation panel IS set to display:block; yet it doesn't work... why is that? How can i make the block triggers the mouseover ?
