Re: Template feedback In reply to
well it was meant to be relativly harsh, i think it is a major problem with the system and is 1 of the main reasons why i will hold out on buying it.

Alex dosen't have to do the templates ;) they have 10 employees, perhaps getting 1 whose job is to do just the html (and images of which there are none!) would be a good plan.

there is nothing "wrong" with the current templates and a low thrills, low bandwidth set is very nice to have but it could be an option with a "thrills" version as well.

In the end, i see email as sometihng i just add on to my site. If people want to use it they use it. I wouldn;t want to spend ages trying to make it look exactly like the rest of my site, i would want to change a couple of colours, add a header and footer and be done with it. This is what i could do with imageFolio.cgi something i recently bought, (see at www.ascifi.com/cgi-bin/gallery/imageFolio.cgi ) it took about an hour to get it installed and ready to work and i can leave it. There are a few things i might change but it works in an hour, there is no way i could say this for the the mail system.

and on the wrong way of doing it, Alex specifically asked for feedback on the templates, i think i was very polite really pointing out what i liked about the programm repeatidly saying what is good about the current set of templates and offering what i think is constructive criticism. If you disagree with my conclusion that is fine but i don't think i went about it the wrong way. I knew i would immediatly get a response akin to this when i posted the message which is why i tried preempt it.
