Hi,

Want to ask a question, does this site have only 1 page (index page)? I don't see any navigation to other pages (if any), or is this happened only to my browser here (Opera)?
one more q, are you using a script to manage the contents like CMS, or custom script, or no script at all (plain html)?

The way it's set up right now, yes, it's really just a single page - I removed the archives and monthly views - they weren't being hit much and i was aiming for a clean, crisp layout. They could be re-integrated without very much effort. The search page works so people can look back in the archives but I don't find it's used very much.

I use an old version on Movable Type but I've customised the templates considerably - both graphically and in terms of what information is displayed.

Hope this helps - please let me know if you have any more questions.

Ok, so the archive is sitting behind the index page then... how many 'links' (like on the index page) do the site have? I believe this info is useful for the other buyers as well..

I'm interested in your site but.... well, I don't want to give any appraisal here since this is not an appraisal forum.
Ok, I'll PM you my budget for this site, please take a look, if it's not in your price, just forget it.

Thanks.

Hi - like most of these database driven sites, many of the internal links are auto generated by the main script - I've turned them off - actually, I've just stopped displaying them but they are still being generated. (I am reconsidering that decision based on feedback I've received)

I got your PM and replied - thank you.

how long is this auction going? what's the high bid?
There have been a number of bids so far but none have reached the sort of level I was hoping for. I'd like to make a quick sale so I am going to start considering offers around the mid USx,xxx's. Once I get a bid that's close to my target I'll sell immediately.

I PM'd you with the highest bid so far.

I need to post more about speedwell, because the trader rating only give me 80 chars which is not enough :).

I recently bought this site, and I'm very satisfied to have a transaction with him. He is very very responsible, trustworthy, professional and excellent seller. I had a little problem because my country is not listed in escrow, so I have to contact my partner outside, and he was patient enough to wait for the escrow preparation completed. After that he finished all the work about transferring the site, he setup everything for me and made the site ready to go and he also fixed even a little problem! really really responsible person. I'm very glad I found him as a seller.

Many many thanks speedwell! And I wish you Good Luck for your future!
