    I have always wanted to showcase the excellent reviews we have here at DNBforum, so today I thought I would sort something out. This is what I came up with:

    http://dnbforum.com/reviews.php

    I am quite pleased with it, I'd like to know what you guys / gals think.

    If you would like to become part of the reviews squad, please leave me a message here and I'll see what I can do.

    Rinse one ;]

    Nice one SDM, different style looks wicked & almost puts them in there own frame to be showcased. Noise Monkey's been rinsing out the reviews page & I've added a few recently but they still don't seem to be getting enough attention at the mo from the rest of the DnB Forum masses & google spiders. Would like to see some more feedback coming from people about the tunes on review & the review in general. ;)
    One question is there no way of having a link button like the home page, dubplates, forum, etc have. (think I've asked that one before).

    I don't really want to clutter the top up with links to various parts of the site. My idea was to highlight the popular areas, which it does.

    I would like to put a ticker tape along under the banner which displays the latest top ten, review blah blah, that will probably be my next job.

    Thanks for the comments all.

    Time to upgrade (y)

    The only advance thing it uses, if you can call it advanced these days! Is 'IFRAME', but most browsers support that these days.

    Good luck mate, I remember back when me, Serum and 1992 were running the reviews and even then we rarely got any feedback on the actual tunes themselves (although we got some nice review feedback from the regs).

    Dunno mate, you can Cara are the only two to complain.

    As I said before, it only uses IFRAME, which is completly standard for IE5.5+, and possibly browsers before that. Even the Breakneck web site uses the IFRAME tag.

    If I can't replicate your problem I can't fix it.

    Just have to keep plowing through the reviews & get as many as possible onto the site & see if comments come back. I think sometimes it's used more like a way to decide if your going to buy a tune or not, I know I've gone to sites & had a look at the reviews then decided on what the reviewer has said before purchasing.
