@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.


The line 174 needs fixing. It's the same error on the other pages. The other two aren't so critical.

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

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.


Yep, I know it needs a lot of work. I have done some of it already. www.jon-wolfe.com. It will never look like what you call good. I am not interested in making it iphone or ipad happy. This is not a business website. I got rich from photography before the internet was created. I am now retired and out of the rat-race. This is more of a hobby website. Those of you who are still in the rat-race will have to worry about responsive. If I wanted responsive-layout-maker, I would have ordered it. If I had wanted even more I would have bought Dreamweaver. CoffeeCup is like McDonalds. I can see that it started in the food business. When I order a hamburger at McDonalds, they say do you want cheese. I say no. If I had wanted cheese I would have ordered a cheeseburger not a hamburger. They then ask if I want this or that and I continue to say no. I ask why they ask all of these questions and they say management makes them ask them. When you ask for help you get it but appended to the very nice help is------------do you want a cheeseburger--or actually---try this product of ours or try that product of ours. I guess you need to drum up the potential extra business. I looked at your website and several others. Many are beautiful but overloaded with words compared to what I wanted to create. Some look almost cartoonish.

I am sure many people on the forum can help me out If I need help. Your staff have also been wonderful and put up with my many questions. But what I don't want and don't need, is help to create an over worded and type-written website like most of what I have seen in the examples here. I realize that this is probably the way to go for business, but I don't have that burden and my website is going to be about my images and not my words. And it is not going to be cartoonish like the example of a web-design site that you suggested to build "my website". If they create what their website looks like, it will never work for me.

Hi Lobo,

I do not work for Coffeecup. I am just a user of their software like you are. I meant no insult in my comments just trying to be helpful. You can still build a very nice website for photos without being too wordy it just takes time.

But what I don't want and don't need, is help to create an over worded and type-written website like most of what I have seen in the examples here. I realize that this is probably the way to go for business, but I don't have that burden and my website is going to be about my images and not my words. And it is not going to be cartoonish like the example of a web-design site that you suggested to build "my website". If they create what their website looks like, it will never work for me.


I never once suggested for you to build a website like mine or any of the ones i have created.

Hope you're this kind to all who try to help.

loboacan,

Thank you for sharing your photos and your website with us!

I have enjoyed looking at your photos in the quiet, simple and uncluttered presentation that you have chosen for them. The images speak for themselves.

The time perspective (e.g. "RFK") adds tremendous value to the collection, ...as does the geographic range!

My favorite would probably be your "Lady Photo". A beautiful portrait!

I have created another site for a New Orleans band called the Daywalkers. I still need to add some content (mainly pictures and band bios), but I thought I'd give you guys a crack at reviewing it now. Thanks again for your interest. The site can be viewed at thedaywalkersneworleans.com

Nicely done Booth!!! The only thing I would consider is cutting down the file size of the images... seems like its taking a bit of time to load the pages. Once loaded it looks very nice. Good job.

Here is a new site created for a local attorney. Although not fully completed (still needs some content), I thought I would let you guys review. The site can be found at its temporary headquarters bk4.coffeecup.com . Thanks.
