    Someone started making a site for me and never finished. I would like to add some pics to what is already done and label them. Could someone explain to me how to do it or where a good place is that describes how to do it? I would like to know so I can update/change pics. Thanks for any help.


    Here is what is done so far.

    I guess that's my problem. I am pretty ignorant on the subject. He told me how he did it but I don't remember. Didn't call it a program, just referred to what he did using a couple of letters.

    Hi mx495,
    the designer was probably referring to html as to what he used. I looked at your site and the designer used software as the site was designed in CSS. Probably dreamweaver program.
    Hope that helps you.

    What css means is that a web developer writes a .css file that contains all the "style sheet" information (think fonts, font sizes, colors, background colors, etc.) into a file that each html page of your site will then reference. The idea is that if you write the style data once then it's easier to change say, your headline font, across the whole site once it's completed.

    The downside is that your web page is written using tables. Think of tables as boxes that divide up your web page, and they contain the text or photos in their area. Tables are not a huge problem, but they always give me fits. I find that if I screw up the tables I have a tough time fixing it and have to ask our web guy to fix it for me.

    Yea, I figured out how to add and edit. The tables you are talking about are nice to use at first, but can be frustrating as it seems they limit you. Without the templates I guess I would be completely lost though, so for me I guess they are a necesarry evil.LOL

    Mx,

    Did you get what you needed figured out or did you need help with something else? I do a little lawn work and a little web design in my spare time, so let me know.
