Working on a small new site to go with another bodybuilding site I have.

www.all-st*roids.com
replace * with e.

General
Is this site completed or under construction?

This is under construction, started with some basic design.
I want the site clean, and professional looking.

My biggest concern is the source code, there is a ton of stuff in there. Is all that okay to have?
Is this template okay to use, SEO wise?

It's fine to have lots of stuff in source code. The engines ignore what they don't need.

I wouldn't worry about the code - it's not really all that much - but I would see if I could combine the CSS together (and the JS) because I'm pretty sure it's a bigger load on your server to do separate files and if your site goes "big-time" you don't want your server bogged down with file access. There are different ways to do this from a simple text editor loading each file into a big file all the way to using PHP to combine and compress the files into .gzip format. Of course your mileage may vary.

A proper server would cache the files anyway, but every little bit you can do to help is usually worth it in the end. It looks like your site may be a high volume one when it gets going.

By the way, the site looks good -- except the green pill. I've never seen green pills and it kinda scares me. smile.gif

Thanks a lot.
Would it be hard to combine all JS and CSS files, with it being a CMS?
Had to make the pills green to match the rest lol.

Not sure, it's all part of the template. Rockettheme.com
Some I probably don't need.
Slideshow
Zoom I assume for the slideshow.
moomenu for dropdown menu
caption is probably for the captin under the slideshow images.

Thanks for feedback.
Appreciate it from all.
