    Also, how do I make pages where only a certain category is shown. For example I want an iPod touch page where only that category is shown. I've already got all the categories set up, I'm just lost with making a page for each one

    Honest opinion - it needs work

    -the header img doesn't relate to the topic
    -you should take the adsense off the front page
    -get rid of the "Niche Adsense Themes are powered by WordPress" footer
    -your ads don't blend, ie: your red ads stick out like a sore thumb
    -your about page is still an example post
    -you have 2 privacy policy pages
    -some posts only show 3 amazon items @ the top which sort of breaks the theme

    Make your post titles and other headings red like your privacy policy page. Everything works well on that page. It ok for your first try.

    2 questions - why is the site in a sub-folder and what do you mean by "pages that only show category"?

    You need to put in more paragraphs, to make it more readable.

    Okay, I shall get onto replacing the header IMG.
    First question, Why do i need to take my adsense off my front page? Alot of other blogs seem to have them on theirs.
    2nd question, what colour would you recommend to make them fit in?
    3rd and final question, what should i go about doing with the amazon ads? I could add them below the subject, you think that would work?

    Sorry for all the questions, Im just trying to learn.

    The reason its in a subfolder is because its just a test and trial. Just learning on how to do them properly first and set them up.

    Take off the ads, they just about kill your page (yeah i think they are that bad)

    Maybe move them down the side or keep just 1 (not so obvious) And yeah the colours of the ads stick out.

    Right, I've deleted one add from the homepage and kept the sidebar one. Should i get rid of that also? If so, should i replace it with a different one somewhere else?
    I've also changed the colour of the ads, is that any better?
