  1. I'd put the UL in one of the OL's list tags, but other than that it works.
  2. OR just do what foxy said... give the css the php ending and give it a header that says it is css.
  3. First Quote is you saying you don't want to program because you want money. Second comment is saying you are doing programming just for the money, and would rather do the transportation business.Third Quote is you assuming you know more about how "fun" programming is. I work with it, it is my full time job, it is just as fun to work with it when you have a goal to work towards. Some times more fun because you know what you are trying to make.
  4. You are being very contradictory right now... You said before you don't want to program because you want money.Now you are saying you want to program because you like it? I am really confused what your problem is... Just find what you like and do it.
  5. A must? I don't understand...Programming is a language.It is a puzzle that has several different solutions, but, several different "busts".Programming is not an easy road to go down. So if you want a job with it you have to understand that and accept it.But I still don't understand what you meant when you said you want to make money... You can make good money programming.
  6. I guess I don't understand this as a reasoning...You said you enjoy programming, so why not pursue it as a job?If you love what you do, you don't work a day in your life. Also, Computer Science majors (programmers) make on average close to six figures... that's a lot. But I do agree, try to step away from the computer in stressful moments. Go for a walk, jog, or just enjoy the fresh air. Ideas will come faster that way then stressing over an LCD screen.
  7. Things that I noticed within 5 seconds: The Navigation Bar's Font is VERY hard to read. There is no contrast for the font to stand out and be easily read. The background's gradient is way to harsh, going from pure white to pure blank is a general no-no. "Reloads" at the time is spelled wrong. Personally, I think you could do a much, much better design. Don't let this be your design. Work harder, and design a much more eye pleasing design. It will take time, but I am sure you could do it! All my opinions but I do feel you could make a MUCH better design if you take the time.
  8. Not true at all...With WordPress just make your site in HTML and CSS, transfer over the WordPress php lines of code that bring in the page content and done.WordPress is not just a blog, it is very easy to make a site out of it with dynamic pages, not blog posts.Http://www.howtomarketyourownwebsite.com (terrible design) But that website is all WordPress. Georgia Tech's website is 100% wordpress...http://www.gatech.edu/ Point being, everything you've laid out for us can easily be done in WordPress.
  9. I am wondering the same question Niche asked?... What are you wanting a content manager to do? Because I work with WordPress and it is far from being called "limited". Edit (About CSS): Working with the CSS in WordPress is not a daunting task either... If you know HTML and CSS well enough it is fairly easy to figure out what CSS class goes where and it is really easy just to open the Dev Console to figure out what is effect what as well.
  10. It does look better! Good job
  11. Maybe, I think you should just make it so when a link in the nav is hovered over the text color changes, not the background-color.As for the layout of the home page, just add more spacing, maybe 2 sections per row. Like Sponsorship and Scholarships on one row, then push the other two to a new row below.
  12. 1) You are centering it the hard way! Haha, try this: #nav{float:left;height:35px;width:100%;background-color:#06F;} #nav ul{width: 600px;margin: 0px auto;color:#FFF;}#nav li{float: left;width: 150px;font-size:16px;padding: 0 0 0 0px;text-align: center;} Then change your HTML nav code to this: <ul><li><a href=" " title=" "></a>home</li><li><a href=" " title=" "></a>services</li><li><a href=" " title=" "></a>prices</li><li><a href=" " title=" "></a>contact</li><div style="clear:both;"></div></ul> Now what did I do? I kept the CSS for #nav the same, but for the ul I added a fixed width and added margin: 0px auto;. That makes it so the ul will center itself in the #nav div. (The width of the ul has to be fixed to a certain width for the margin to work.) Then for the li in the css I just made the width equal to 150px (600px / 4 = 150px) and made the text center itself. The div after the <li>'s in the html makes it so the floated div elements are now recognized/in relation to the ul container they are in. 2) To fix this you just have to edit your html a bit and add a div. First, take your ending </div> for the #main and end #main right before you start the footer. Then before the ending #main div tag, add another empty div tag that clears the float again, like we did with the nav. <div id="main"><div id="leftside"> <p> </p> <p><img src="images/computer-image.png" width="99" height="62" /> No Fix No Fee</p> <p> </p> <p><img src="images/settings-image.png" width="89" height="78" /> Flat Rate Fee<br /></p> <p> </p> <p><img src="images/network-image.png" width="70" height="73" /> Newton Abbot & Torbay</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p></div> <div id="centre"><p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, aeterno recusabo assentior sit cu, no tamquam omittam pro, pro nostrud commune interpretaris te.

Has adhuc maiestatis te, habeo fuisset at per, mel an commune suavitate contentiones.</p></div> <div id="rightside"></div><!--rightside--><div style="clear:both"></div></div><!--main--> 3) To do this we have to mess with the html a bit, take the img tags out of the <p> tag, put an empty div with the clear and margin after each <p> tag to clear the floats we are going to put, and take out the 's. <div id="leftside"> <img src="images/computer-image.png" width="99" height="62" /><p>No Fix No Fee</p> <div style="clear:both; margin-bottom: 10px;"></div> <img src="images/settings-image.png" width="89" height="78" /><p>Flat Rate Fee</p> <div style="clear:both; margin-bottom: 10px;"></div> <img src="images/network-image.png" width="70" height="73" /><p>Newton Abbot & Torbay</p> <div style="clear:both; margin-bottom: 10px;"></div></div> Then in the css we just have to add this! #leftside img{float: left;height: 50px;width: 50px;margin-right: 10px;}#leftside p{float: left;line-height: 50px;margin-left: 10px;} Now, that fixes all of your issues, however I would make a class for the clear: both; empty divs to make things more systematic and clean. But that is up to you! If you have any questions, ask.
  13. Hey Baragan! Here are a few suggestions from me. The Navigation Seems very odd how there is about 50px of space to the left and a huge chuck of space to the right. Just not balanced well. The hover effect isn't elegant enough. May sound weird, but the background color change just doesn't fit, nor look that professional. Layout/Template I actually like the template of the content pages. (About, Contact, Testimonial, etc.) However, I do not like the home page. Very block-y, not spaced out, seems really crammed. The testimonial pages yellow background color is very hash on the eyes, really bright. Why not just used that nice grey you use on the contact page? Footer Not bad actually, the simplistic of it is nice. However, I would just move the copyright text to align left like the links do. Also, try lining up the "Follow Us:" text on the right, so it lines up with the links on the left. Then, drop the facebook and twitter images underneath the "Follow Us:" text. Other than that, it is really isn't have bad for a new developer! It is very simplistic, which isn't bad, but it has a 2000 era feel of design. But, you'll get the hang of your own design and such.
  14. Uploaded on the internet so we can view it like a regular website. So we can actually find faults/bugs/issues. Because we are lazy and don't want to read line by line of code if it is perfect. I'd rather test, find an imperfection, look in the code at the specific point, then read.
  15. You won't get much help/good help until you upload. But one suggestion I can give you is to test is every browser possible. It will teach you how to fix bugs, what to look for, and make you better rounded developer.

    Honestly, it is very old school. Early 2000's era. It works, I guess, for a math website because they have no need for it to look "Flashy" or Web 2.0-ish. If this is the audience you are going for then you're probably fine. However, if you are freelancing for everyone, try to create a well polished "Web 2.0" website. Because in this day and age clients are going to expect it.

    Steps to follow?

    My Steps: 1) Sketch a design on paper2) Make a prototype from HTML/CSS3) Validate your code as you go4) Make everything look pretty AND WORK WELL6) Upload to a server 5) Done
  19. I messaged you the fixes.
  20. Has to be an old IE problem cause IE10 is just fine.
  21. Do you have a live version? I have IE10 I can test for ya. EDIT:(There is always this diamond in the rough I forget about)https://browserlab.a...n-us/index.html Let's you test is every browser/OS (Only IE9 though)
  22. Which IE version are you using? Because a lot of the older IE's don't support border-radius at all..which sucks
  23. That's exactly what he has?Just make sure your file is name ex1.css exactly! Caps and all. Then make sure your two files (.html and .css) are in the same folder...Just do what you do with all your other sites.

    Just point the database connection to the same database. There should be no problem with that.
