Is Godaddy legit or a scam?
Question I have... Is Godaddy legit or a scam? Looking forward for any response. Another question on my mind: Hey there..

I have a website that I made as a fansite, and I got someone to make the layout adn all, so now I'm coding it. veryhting looked fine until some people said that they couldnt see the menu. I think my problem is that the layout is not centering on evryones screens, but I dont know and I really dont know how to fix it. I need someone who knows whats wrong so I came here..

Heres the website, http://www.freewebs.com/bruntfans.

And here is the beggining of my code.

<HTML>.

<BODY>.

<head><meta name="description" content="The official Fan GoDaddy site for Daryl Brunt, 16 year old Candian Idol top 10 finalist. Website inludes Bio, Media, Pictures, Graphics, Fan Listing, Art and a forum. Watch Canadian Idol on CTV every Tuesaday adn Wednesday.">.

<meta name="keywords" content="Daryl Brunt, Top 10, Canadian Idol, fan site."> </head>.

<center><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v99/genevieve_oreilly/daryllayout2.jpg"></center>.

<meta http-equiv="Page-Enter" content="blendtrans(duration=2.0)">.

<table style=position:absolute;right:710;top:275><td><div id="Version Whatever" style="width:150 ; height: 200; overflow: auto" align="left"> <font face= "century gothic " color="#000000" size="3">.

<body link="#000000" vlink="#000000" alink="#000000">.

<br></div></td></table> </font>.

_________________________________________________________________.

Anothher thing I have noticed is that I centered the layout image in my index or main page, but centering does not work on any of the other images, on any ohter page of the site. I copied the exact code from the main page and put it into the other pages code, and it works fine, but then when I change the url of the layout back to the one I wannt, ie: phtobucket,com/example2 to example4 it doesnt center anymore..

Im hoping there is a simple solution.

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

Yup, however you might want to make sure and wait for someone else to confirm this as I am unsure of myself. Better yet, why don't you contact the Godaddy guys because they can assist you better...

Gen, a more detailed look at your code reveals some considerable problems with your layout. It doesn't work in either Firefox or IE at an 800 x 600 layout. The reason for this is that you are trying to "overlay" your content on a fixed background image using several different tables and trying to position these. I hadn't realised the height of your image file when first looking at the site. Have a look in this mode and you will see the problems. No doubt the same problems will also occur in larger resolutions than 1024 x 768..

You also can't have div names split as you have "Version Whatever". It must be one single word. As for centreing, don't worry about the 80% with 10% margins because as you are using an image, it won't work. You'll have to go with <div align="center"> enclosing your total table and put the image inside. Don't forget your closing </div> tag at the foot before the </body> tag..

If you wish to go the css route, try this link - http://css-discuss.incutio.com/?page=FrontPage..

Alrighty then...

I think I'm gonna start the whole coding process over, and follow a tutorial. I guess I cant just make it work the way I want it to..

So would you suggest going the css route?.

And lastly, any easy tutorials that you know of that can help me?.

Thanks again!..

CSS is the ultimate goal for any web designer, but don't have a nervous breakdown trying to get there too quickly. Quality houses are always built on solid foundations and that's where you need to start..

Some links to good tutorials are: http://www.w3schools.com/default.asp http://www.htmldog.com/ and http://bonrouge.com/br.php?page=home.

Ok, I'm back again!.

Im really frustrated, ive been trying out a ton of different things, but nothng seems to work.

I think the problem I'm having is that because ive nver done a layout, and just text and a coloured backround, I'm a wee bit lost in the tables and stuff. either that or I'm just plain dumb... could be either..

So here I am, following the tutorial, but none have one that describes to me how to make my code fit my layout. does anyone know if I should use tables or frames, or iframes, or somehitng else that I dont know about....

Ive never heard of this firefox thing, maybe us canadians are a little slower at picking up stuff, I dont know, but everyone ive talked to has never heard about it.

All I want is my links to line up in the menu box, the updates to line up in their box, and my text to not shift over once people with different screen resolutions come to see it.

Could someone tell me the easiset, simplest way to get this to work, I'm not trying to be a pro, but I just want to make this GoDaddy site work!.

I appreciate you looking over my newness at all this stuff, but I'm still lost......

Given that your GoDaddy site is essentially a blog, your answer may be here:-.

Http://www.blogsome.com/.

That may well provide you with the answers you're looking for while you start developing your own html and css skills..

As for Firefox.....well, what can I say except pretty much the entire developer community uses it as a browser. It renders in accordance with the standards and is stable and reliable. Do yourself a favour and download it and start using it..

Can your say link? This link has an example layout of one that you are trying to achieve, while it's not your exact layout it's very similar. For your navigation you should be using some type of list. If you were to slice your layout using Photoshop, Imageready, or some other program that can slice images, I think it would be a whole lot easier to code your site. This link, well I think it's one of the most informative sites I've seen that talk about CSS. Testing in more than one browser is always helpful. Testing in a standards compliant browser like Firefox and then making changes and adding hacks in for IE make coding a bit easier.

IE6.02, FF1.0.6, Opera7.54, Opera8.0, NS7.2, NS8.0, and Mozilla1.7.8. NS, FF, and Mozilla render pretty much the same but you never know something could be off. NS7.2 renders things differently than NS8 sometimes. Opera and IE well those can be a pain but the problems you have become repetitive so you know how to fix things...
