As the title says im somewhat new to it. I had an old site but I got bored and stopped doing it. I just came back and made this in around a week. https://digital-devil.neocities.org/ If you have the time, please look at it and give me some advice. Thank you for reading this :transport:

Hii, ooph this is a nice lil design; I like the snowman dude, hes just havin a nice ol day.

Site design I can make a few observations; most are just my opinion though so you should do what you think is best!
  • Its a BIT small; I know your going for that retro mini look, but modern screens ARE bigger and you can make use of that.
  • I cant find any way to get back to the first page when I click a link? You could make your "Digital Devil" logo do that!
  • You can use this to fix your URLs https://forum.melonland.net/index.php?topic=115.0
  • The font is cool, but sometimes on longer bits of text, like your about page, its tad overwhelming; if you used a mix of fonts; maybe something less blocky for paragraphs that would be helpful for people reading!

I like where its going though; its nice to see a site thats not using sadnesses layout generator  :^P Obvs you have a few unfinished links to sort out but its WIP. Snooping your code; its good! Maybe double check your <ul>'s and <li>'s (lists), you've got a few errors with those; and I notice you don't use any <h1> or<h2> tags for headers? Overall though its really good for being new to HTML.

I think its a great start and you should be pleased with it  :unite:

I agree with Melooon about the font. It's a good font but I think if you restrict its use to headings and maybe a few small places it would work best. You could find a similar geometric blocky font which is easier to read for paragraph text. I would also recommend trying to improve type contrast for lists and for links - they are all currently using the same style and it all kind of blends together.

In general, the easiest line length to read is between 40-60 characters. Yours are very short, it seems closer to 20 characters or something like that, it feels a bit cramped to me.  :eyes:

The snowman looks pretty friendly though, I like it.  :D

Hope that helps. Have fun!  \o/

How do I make only headers use that font? It does it for everything. Also there’s no question marks so I don’t use them how do I fix that?

How do I make only headers use that font? It does it for everything.

Easy! It looks like some of your headers are in h3 tags (on your page2.html); so you just need to do something like this!
Code: [Select]
body {
  font-family: sans-serif;
}

h1, h2, h3 {
  font-family:"Bit3";
}
(I put san-serif as the body font to make it different but you could pick any; I also made your bit font apply to h1, h2 and h3 tags, so no matter what one you use they will all have the same font)

Also there’s no question marks so I don’t use them how do I fix that?
Im not sure what you mean here? No question marks? You can use question marks on html pages!

Ooohh, it sounds like the font you are using does not have question marks in it; if a font maker does not make a design for a particular letter or symbol, then it will just show up as the default, which is generally Times New Roman :defrag:

You can set back up fonts to use if your first doesn't work. You can read more about it with fallback fonts.
