Great looking site Booth! Easy to use, nice layout, nice to look at! Well done!

You knew there was a "but" coming didn't you :D

To make this an absolute smash I would make it responsive! :D:D:D

Thanks, Steve. I have almost all the coffeecup software, including the Responsive Layout Maker, I just haven't taken the time to learn it. I am waiting like many others to see the new version of VSD in a responsive format. Boy will I have fun then! By the way, thank you for your help. It is much appreciated.

Hi Lobo,

To be completely honest your website needs a lot of work. Please don't take this the wrong way because I am sure you are a great photographer but you should get someone to build you a website that can really highlight your portfolio. You may also want to consider making your website responsive as over 50% of the market is now viewing your website from their mobile devices.

Consider checking this out: http://www.coffeecup.com/responsive-layout-maker-pro/

There are many great people in the forums that would gladly give you advice on how to improve. If you would like any please let us know.

Well, I'm at it again. I recently decided to create a website for a local business on spec. I present the partially completed site here for your opinions. The main menu is not functional yet, but there are plenty of internal links to view every page. (All footer links work) Please take particular attention to the "engine repair", "maintenance", and "brakes & suspension" images on the Services page. I created an anchor link to scroll down the page. Nothing particularly exciting about that, I suppose, but I was able to use some j-query to introduce a smooth scrolling effect. It's pretty cool even if I say so myself. If anybody wants the html for the effect, just email me at boothkates@gmail.com. The site can be viewed at its temporary headquarters at bk3.coffeecup.com.

@Booth, Are you using altering your VSD pages and ftp'ing it manually.? Several of your page have some code issues that VSD couldn't have done. Other then that it looks like your off to a great start.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Thanks for the comments guys. @Eric, I haven't even had the chance to view the source code, but I know that Wow Slider has created problems for me. This site was uploaded via the internal features contained within VSD using S-Drive . I'll take a look later today.

@Eric.....I have eliminated all but 3 errors on the site using the w3c validator website. All errors were from code contained in the Menu Builder and a Google Map reference. The last three I'll work on when I get home tonight. I have run into this problem consistently and have always had to clean up some code. Question.......is there something I am doing to create these situations? If I create a menu with Coffeecup MenuBuilder, shouldn't I expect "clean" code or am I creating the problem?
