  1. Thanks for the reply Andrea and Eddie. I can make extremely creative websites with css/html but If I make them for individual clients, they have no way to change content on their site unless they also know html.


    I just want to make individual sections of a site that I build from scratch to be editable for the client. Anyone know of any tools I can use to achieve this?


    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/

  2. 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).

  3. Hi,


    I just wanted to announce that our new interactive video training system (www.studioWeb.com) is now being used by k12 schools to teach students the fundamentals of web design and programming:


    • HTML
    • CSS
    • PHP
    • JavaScript


    StudioWeb was originally the name my web design & development studio ran under - I registered that name in 1998!




    Congratulations on all of your hard work :)

  4. 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/

  5. Hello Men,


    I've put the two css files in the css directory as they were not weren't there! It's still not playing but I'm thinking the actual images might not be in the right folder, where should they be please?


    Thanks again



    I just checked, the two links are still not working. Both still returning 404 errors.

  6. Hello Eddie,


    Thanks so much for this.


    I have in the 2bfit folder a folder called css and within this folder I have the files jquery.fancybox-buttons.css and jquery.fancybox-thumbs.css so I suppose it's like this 2bfit/css/jquery.fancybox-thumbs.css would that do?



    you should also see your style.css file in that folder as well, and your other two files should be labeled





    include the entire title otherwise your html can't find the css code that it's looking for

  7. Hello Again,


    For the link to be broken does this mean that the jquery.fancybox-buttons.css?v=1.0.5 file would have to be in the css directory as in the code <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/jquery.fancybox-buttons.css?v=1.0.5" />


    Thank you again


    Best wishes



    Place the css code titled jquery.fancybox-buttons.css?v=1.0.5 within the folder called css

  8. Aw man!


    Thanks for that, I put the files in the correct directory and the link seems ok now but it still won't display the images, would you mind checking again?


    Thank you so much

    I just checked, the two links are still not working. Both still returning 404 errors.

  9. 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>

  10. 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!

  11. What is the meaning of SEO and How it can help for our website..?

    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. :)

  12. 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.
