  1. I am not familiar with that tutorial myself, I would also make sure that there are no file paths in your database that need to be changed. I struggled with this over the last few days as some plugins still use absolute file paths rather than relative file paths. You could have your database still pointing to images @ /localhost/content/...etc instead of /{server path}/content/...etc where your images actually are.
  2. First of all you do not want to use tables for webpage layout, the are for Data Tables only. Early in web design, when there was no other options and website design was static, tables had been used for layout. It's best to use DIVs and CSS to layout the page where DIVs can be dynamically sized and positioned in relation to one another. If you are using Wordpress and your theme does not come with Column shortcodes, noting that columns are not the same as tables, there are several plugins to add this functionality. Some others may have some other options for you as well.
  3. You need to carry your navigation menu through all pages. You want to start thinking grid structure. Navigation should appear consistently either above your content aranged horizontally or to the left (usually) aranged vertically. Currently you only have a navigation menu to the left, arranged vertically and below your content. Otherwise I think it would be best to follow the tutorials on the site that Andrea gave you. If that does not give you everything you need to follow the suggestions you have already, try some google searches.
  4. If you are looking to design websites professionaly you may also want to search the web for resources on professional typography.
  5. Truthfully you will always get both kinds, especially when it comes to certain types of information. Some prefer subitting forms online because as you stated it's quicker. Others prefer to fill in a paper form and mail it or submit it in person. They either like the tactility of a paper form, or feel it's more secure than submitting it online. That being said, if you as a buisiness are comfortable handling both hard copy and digital form submissions, give them the option. Otherwise give them the option that best suites your businesses administration procedures. Options are usually better howev
  6. Yes I agree, that theme definately seems to be handling mobile formatting badly. :| None the less, I think with that you have a fairly good start to work from. You may have to try other themes till things not only look right but work right as well. Though I have a feeling the current theme may be a responsive design, if you do decide to try other themes make sure they are responsive themes, they should format more neatly to just about any mobile device. Otherwise if you use a theme that is not responsive there are a few plugins that will alow mobile devices to access the site in a mobile forma
  7. Just to expand a little bit on Andreas answer, 1024 - 960 is the target width you should use if you are designing a website to be displayed on a desktop or laptop. Where you need to consider the height is where your focus content will fall in the initial view the visitor will have when the page loads. Considering 768 - 720 as your horizon line, always want to have a significant portion of your focus content above this horizon line, you never want it below the horizon line. In other words you never want the content that is the focus of that page to be hidden and require the visitor to scroll do
  8. Some other things to consider is that your body content (Images and Text.), need not stretch across the whole page. Infact likely they should not. You want your body text to be visible when the page loads, at the moment you have a rather large image dominating the bottem of the page when it first loads. A better idea would be to make that image smaller and put the small blurb beside it. My personal preferance is to keep images to the right and text to the left unless the image it's self is the focus of the text. If your theme provides column shortcodes you may even consider using them to divid
  9. Just joined. Haunting and helping where I can till I am able to join in freely.

  10. First thing I will say is you first draft takes far to long to load. Actually it crashed my desktop instance the first time I tried to load it. Pages taking a long time to load it terrible, crashing your visitors computers is nothing short of an absolute desaster. So the first thing I would greatly suggest is to check all your images for file size and resolution. Your Logo image is set to 1200 pixels per inch. This is far to high! For the web all images should be no more than 72 pixels per inch. Just to be sure you can recover hire resolution images later (Who knows maybe you want to put y
