    Ok so you're thinking, "what on earth is UKDS doing mucking around with websites when he knows didlysquat about html etc" !

    Too right !

    BUT, following a couple of BCS presentations from Dan Harrison (ok here's his plug : http://www.streamlinedthinking.co.uk/ ) I have managed to get to grips with Wordpress and knock up a reasonable site.

    It can be viewed at :

    www.longfleeturc.org.uk

    I'm sure I'll get plenty of critisicm but please remember that for the non-programmers/coders sometimes we just need a simple solution ! :biggrin

    Bit rough around the edges, but apart from that. It works. (Terrible looking though, astetically). Good job though.

    Well it was a choice (theirs) from one of many free Wordpress templates for Christian churches.

    Actually, I quite like it :biggrin

    Nice site. You can tell at first glance what the site is for, with plenty of content. I like the left hand navigation menu, with the underline effect.

    If possible, I'd try and get hold of a clearer or higher resolution image for the logo, as it looks a bit grainy, but other than that, good job.

    OK, have got the logo and resized it - it's a little better but as it's silvery it does look a little grainy. Not allowed to change it unfortunately and the alternative blue one doesn't fit the colour scheme.

    Anyway, as the church is happy I think that will do.

    Also - cheers JK2447 !

    (and can we please keep on-topic ! Start a new thread if you *must* promote your blogs ! :x )

    looks spot on IMO

    I got asked to design something really simple but haven't done anything with it yet! designing websites doesn't interest me. I also laugh as i only got asked becuase "i'm good with computers" lol

    That's a neat effort UKD, especially with no prior form in the area :) thanks for the linky, and for the plug for Dan.
