    Good day to all, I hope you have a great day. When you get the time stop into www.host-hunters.com and check out all the great discussions we have on the forum. If you are looking for a host or looking to advertise your hosting service, Host-Hunters is perfect for you.

    Would like to get opinions on the theme as well, this is one that I made.

    I'm not too big on the colors, dnt like the blue and orange or maybe that's just me.

    That's understandable though, for me the hardest thing is trying to make a theme that everyone would enjoy.
    Thank you though very much on the feedback.

    I like to use nuetral colors; I.e. shades of white and gray. And I will usually use one main color.

    I use these a lot. #e6e6e6 & #f2f2f2. There really nice with gradients to make them stand out.

    It's been a little since you last heard from us, so we thought we would stop in and say hello. We just had a great contest where the winner won an unbranded Blesta license. We have more contests in the planning stages and one coming up very soon. We offer free advertising and free directory listing to everyone, no minimum posts required. When you get some free time and want to advertise your hosting or you are in need for a host, stop in look around see what we have to offer. If you have some spare time join in on some of our discussion.

    Have a great night

    I'm not sure I like the colors. If I were looking for a hosting company it might scare me off. Idk it just looks a little to colorful. It seems fine but fir some reason it scared me off and I am currently searching for a hosting company so I took a serious look at it.

    You really need to switch on responsive design as it's not nice to use on a tablet or phone.

    This kick started me into getting the new theme up and down and it is responsive now. (y)

    You've got a bit more tweaking to do.

    Firstly, ads aren't responsive.

    See this resource for support:

    http://xenforo.com/community/resources/responsive-adsense.2084/

    You may want to look at adjusting the last message column, it'd look better with the date on only line below the user avatar.

    It looks like you don't have friendly URLs switched on, I'd suggest you do as they look nicer.


    Very importantly, http://www.host-hunters.com and
    http://host-hunters.com are effectively two separate sites. You need to enable non-www to www redirection (or vice versa).

    I have added the the redirect all traffic, the ads aren't google ads they are direct sale ads that I added in myself, so not sure if brogan responsive ads would work. Also I am trying to figure out how to adjust the last message column. Thank you again for all the feed back.

    The principle is the same though the coding would be different. If you are selling ads directly then you'd have to explain the different sizes at different screen widths and have 3 sizes provided by the companies who are buying the ad space.

    The first image I had in my head when I've see your site was Kaspersky. Had to share, sorry.
