  1. Ahh, i see! Sounds simple enough to do then And does that not risk lag, or can most dedicated servers (on average, i understand they can differ a lot) hold quite a lot?
  2. For h1, all you need is <h1>Enviroment</h1>, and it still 'connects' with your stylesheet perfectly fine (unless you have any other issues with your code, of course

    Vertical align?

    I have already added display:block, and the padding/margins do work, but they take the background color with them, which is the problem im having, as the color falls out of the navbar. Sorry if that wasn't clear...

    Vertical align?

    Hello again I have started another attempt at designing my homepage (i have 2 ideas going, one with Joomla and one hand coded), and i have hit an issue with my navbar... http://dhdesign.net63.net/ - I would like the text to be centered in the middle of the navbar, however all of the techniques i have tried aren't working (margin-top, vertical-align, padding), as they move the background color with them. Is there any way i can keep the background color in the same place, whilst moving the text down? Thanks a lot, Danny Oh, and i apologize if the code is a bit odd around the area of the navbar on the link, it is the result of following 2 or 3 google tutorials i found that didn't work.
  6. I have suggested them all, do you tend to use/suggest the same webhosts for each job, or do you swap around for certain clients?
  7. Im a little paranoid about webhosting, as i don't want to suggest a webhost that doesn't include something i need. 3ix.co.uk is the site i was going to use, and this is the stuff it claims to give you on the cheapest deal: This seems too good to be true, surely? Thanks a lot, Danny
  8. Take it from someone who just tried to do a job full of a massive background image, LSW is very right All it will do is drive you crazy with any code that is anything above basic, so you will have to work around the image instead of using it to your advantage... Also, i can't open the image through the path you put in the CSS, so its either a path issue, or maybe you have it set to .jpg when the CSS says .jpeg? Not sure if that changes anything, but its a possibility
  9. I would take the advice, about the silver line especially - a horizontal scroll bar is a worst nightmare for a lot of people, and it makes the website looks unprofessional... Is it an issue with the Javascript, or maybe since it has been uploaded? Also, what are you testing it on(Browser)? As Andrea pointed out, your Doctype is incomplete, which has caused me several issues on Internet Explorer before... This is the full W3C doctype (to my understanding, the latest one), so if you correct the code at the top of your page with this, it might work?
  10. Well, i can edit the CSS perfectly fine, but its more a case of navigating around the files that confuses me - there is barely any HTML to work with, so if i wanted to change something like the text on the login form, i wouldn't know how to do that... (I don't think you can do that through 'Admin').
  11. Wow, thanks for all the feedback! I considered Hodge Website Design, so i guess that will go nicely. Its not my full name, so it could be perceived as my personal name or business name i guess (:
  12. Okay, reading through the beginning part of this has helped me a lot, but i have a very simple question - does it help to have yourself set up with a name for your business that isn't just your name? Such as Falken creative, or a&b website design? Im not sure if this is answerable, but i wondered if anyone has had feedback from a client, or other website designers, about its effectiveness? That isn't just aimed at Ben and Andrea, however i found links on your profiles and i thought it might of helped I was going to simply have my title as 'Daniel Hodge Website Design', however since most of the posters i have seen around this site seem to have certain business names, is this something i should also consider? Thanks a lot!
  13. I have been looking through all the debates over which is better out of Joomla and Wordpress, and the final opinion seems to be that they aren't comparable because they each have their own uses, which surpass the 'competition'. So i was wondering, will killersites be making any tutorials on Joomla? I prefer to use this for now, as it seems to offer more options than Wordpress (blogs, and other add ons such as a forum that can be used fairly easily), however customizing the default template feels like a shot in the dark, and i would of thought Joomla will get as many purchases as Wordpress got for you? Being able to make a template from scratch would be great! Also, just so i don't spam up the forums with another thread, i am creating my website design homepage, as i figured the earlier i started the better, and i thought of using Joomla... Is this too much for a website design homepage, or is it suggested? My reasoning was that i am, obviously, hoping to be adding to my portfolio regularly, so it would be a pain to jump back into dreamweaver and edit more code, so if i could log in on Joomla, i can make a new article, throw in a picture of the finished design, and set it to the frontpage, then i have my 'Portfolio' page, which is a front page blog layout, which will show all my past jobs - meaning uploading it once will place it in the several places i want it. Thanks a lot for all your help, Danny

    Background image

    Well, the thing is - i totally agree with you, and creating a website purely through graphics was like my worst nightmare, however the client asked for this exact design - sky background, wood for the center bit, grass at the bottom, and some kind of plants around the wood. So although website designers are supposed to make it look good for the viewers, the clients views are still more important - since thats who is paying me, right? And i wont be using this in a portfolio, so that isn't really an issue either...

    Background image

    Well, my monitor is 1600 by 1000 pixels, so if it works on that size properly, would you say that is the best optimization? I think i remember someone showing me a link on here about the average of what monitors people use, and since i have the average size, thats okay right?
