1. The requirements are something that the user should be aware of before downloading.  In addition to listing them in the side-bar, maybe it would make sense to duplicate the requirements section from the about page on the download page. Have a sub-section on the Downloads page for "Requirements" with introductory text like "Before downloading, make sure your system can fulfill these requirements."  We can leave the requirements summary in the side-bar too (like you already do), but I just had that thought while looking at it.
Sounds good to me.

2. It would be nice if the screenshots were more prominent.  Since they form a relatively narrow list, do you think it would make sense to put the screenshots in the side-bar, to give the side-bar some more purpose?
Also makes sense to me- perhaps thumbnails in the sidebar than can be clicked to see the full size image?

3. In my version of the site, I actually have a file called which is included in all the other html files.  They're actually .shtml files so that I don't have to maintain the navigation links independently on each page.  Would it be practical to do the same with these pages to include a common navigation bar, and possibly the portion of the the side-bar that doesn't change?  Details of all the formats supported by SourceForge are at   Details about shtml format are at  If you don't have a way to test .shtml files, I can probably implement that part myself.
Both the nav bar and the footer are .php files. They are included in every page via a line of php. There is no need for .shtml, Sourceforge supports php. It would be a good idea to make the sidebar an include as well.

4. Now that the "About" information has its own page, I don't think I need the "Important Information" heading.  The sub-headings by themselves will suffice.  I can change that just as easily as you, though (after I get the site).
OK. I'll  remove it.

5. Do you happen to know a good way to automatically include RSS feed/links on a page?  Then I could just have the RSS feed instead of manually adding news links, right?
Yes, I can write a php script to do that. I also have a sort of barebones php-mysql CMS that I wrote for my blog that I could incorporate if you'd rather use that. (functionality for adding, deleting, and editing news entries via an admin panel, automatically updates rss feed)

Also, I just noticed that the bold formatting of the text at the beginning of most of the news items was lost.
I see that, I will fix it.

I added the screenshots and a link to the documentation in the nav bar.
Should I add the About the Author stuff into the About page or still have it as an extra page (linked to in the nav bar)?

Hey, it looks nice. I might be interested. Is it easy to learn? Do I need photoshop to create the site?
You'd be best off editing it in photoshop, though Gimp and a few other programs will open and allow you to edit psd files.

Thanks Jam and SmartBoy.

Hi all,
Lately I've been messing around a bit in photoshop trying to design a new layout for the SGDK2 site.
I've become a lot busier recently and it's been getting neglected so I decided to post my mockup here and see if anyone else would be interested in working on it.
If you are interested at all please contact me and I'll send you the .psd file.

Does this message come up when you're submitting information through a form on your site? If so, it's because the form 'action' isn't set up right...I don't really know how to do this...But I know it never works with forms that the information isn't run through a different website...(ie. Freewebs form creator send the information to freewebs, who sends it to your email) Don't know how much that made sense, but I hope you get something out of it.

Best free graphics manipulation software outhere = GIMP (
It's...amazing, for being free. I suppose it can be quite complicated to learn though. Anyways, it does have functionality for animated GIFs if that's what you're going for.
