  1. Just my suggestion, but your new demo no longer has the scrolling effect (I like the scrolling effect). Keep the scrolling effect and place your contact section at the bottom of your page so when someone clicks the Contact link it will scroll down to that section.
  2. I noticed that your Contact and LinkedIn links at the top were not working for me
  3. parallax web design...if you're really hip combine parallax design with responsive web design
  4. I realize many people love Wordpress because of its ease of use, however it sounds like something even easier for your clients like Perch may be what you are looking for. With a simple CMS like perch you simply add simple code to the part of your static website that you want to be dynamic for your client. http://grabaperch.com/
  5. Flat Design is in right now primarily because of Apple and how it looks on mobile devices. Also Windows 8 uses Flat Design (which confuses many people who primarily use their desktop). If your ecommerce site is mobile a flat design may be right for you; if not there is no particular reason to use it (unless you just like the look).
  6. I agree too much white space at the top of your site; otherwise I like your site. Since you are using a one page site make it a parallax site. Contrary to what many think you can have your cake (parallax) and eat it too (responsive). If interested check out Cool Kitten http://jalxob.com/cool-kitten/
  7. If you have Fireworks (it is web design software) use that not Photoshop (it is an image editing software). From Fireworks you can easily export an editable pdf for your client. Since this is your first client and a friend, go old school and do a low fidelity mock up. In other words use pencil and graph paper. http://www.uistencils.com/

    Alexa Ranking

    SEO has changed again...this week Google is encrypting ALL Keyword Searches. So from now on you can say Goodbye to Keyword Data from Google (unless you pay for it...funny how that works )
  9. These sites may be what you're looking for: http://infogr.am/ http://create.visual.ly/
  10. I just checked, the two links are still not working. Both still returning 404 errors.
  11. you should also see your style.css file in that folder as well, and your other two files should be labeled jquery.fancybox-buttons.css?v=1.0.5 jquery.fancybox-thumbs.css?v=1.0.7 include the entire title otherwise your html can't find the css code that it's looking for
  12. Place the css code titled jquery.fancybox-buttons.css?v=1.0.5 within the folder called css
  13. I just checked, the two links are still not working. Both still returning 404 errors.
  14. In the <head> section of your code where you have your Fancybox code; the two links I have in bold are broken. Because of that your website is not displaying the css code necessary to display your images properly. Fix the links and it should work for you. <!-- Add Button helper (this is optional) --> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/jquery.fancybox-buttons.css?v=1.0.5" /> <script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.fancybox-buttons.js?v=1.0.5"></script> <!-- Add Thumbnail helper (this is optional) --> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/jquery.fancybox-thumbs.css?v=1.0.7" /> <script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.fancybox-thumbs.js?v=1.0.7"></script>
  15. Most if not all of the templates you mentioned are html templates so no CMS is required. No CMS also means no database is required neither. You will need a code editor like Notepad ++ (I use Dreamweaver) to edit the template to make the text and images unique to you. Then you will need a FTP (file transfer protocol) program like Filezilla to upload the template to your web host (for example hostgator.com). Of course you will also need your own domain name that points to your web host (for example namecheap.com) Everything I mentioned above presumes you are familiar with Html, css, and possibly javascript. If not you will either need to learn it to modify the template or hire someone to do the work for you. Best of luck!

    What Is Seo?

    SEO will help your website rank higher in the SERPs (search engine results page). The higher your website is listed, the more likely visitors (customers) are to visit your website. Better SEO equals more visitors, which should equal more money for you.
  17. I'm confused are Graeme and laetitia64 the same person asking the same question?
  18. why are you using pixels and ems together? Here is the table you asked about http://pxtoem.com/
  19. Since twitter is using a new api you now must login to your twitter account, go to settings, and then to widgets. Create a new widget and then embed the code into your website.
  20. yes what you have above is just the html for the form itself. To make the form functional you need some type of sendmail.php script to make it work e.g. <form id="form" name="form" method="post" action="sendmail.php">
  21. One of the main purposes of a child theme is so that when the base theme is updated it will not affect your child theme in a negative way. The exact instructions for your child theme will depend on which CMS you decide to use (e.g. drupal or wordpress). Plugins, widgets, or modules being updated should not have a negative impact on your child theme.
