I want to find a really good abs exercise website. I weight at a measly 7 stone (can't put weight on/off for the past 3 years) but I have a pot belly.

Generally for a six-pack to be visible in a male you have to have a bodyfat percentage in the single digits. No amount or type of excercise will work unless your bodyfat is low enough.
I personally do modified weighted crunches (known as cap'n crunches):
Hold a dumbbell of a desired weight behind your head, under your neck as if it were a pillow. Hold it in this postition with your hands (to not press it against your body). Keep your legs raised to reduce the risk of injuring your lower back. Perform normal crunches (be sure to use only your abs to pull your body up) and hold it in the highest position for 5 seconds. I usually do 3 sets of 10. If done correctly they are extremely painful (in a good way), people stare at me in the gym because I make so much noise sometimes.

And not take hundreds and hundreds to do so! I will have to try them! Thanks.

If you're doing more than 25-30 crunches per set, then you're probably either doing the exercise incorrectly or need more challenging exercises.
