Hey Gypsy,

I think your website looks amazing! Possibly you would want to add a blog to your site or possibly a Flickr photo gallery. Here are some links to these tutorials:

Photo Galleries

I hope this helps and good luck with your site!

Hi Emmy
Thank you so much for your reply
I was thinking about when you open the website of having a slide photo to take you to the next page/ spot in the web site
Is this done by the slide show? Im very confused about it, and Im sorry but I cant find one to show you what I mean

Hi Gypsy

It's been awhile since you've been on the forum. It's good to see you again. I can see that you've taken the previous suggestions to heart and your site is looking really nice. =)

I think your site has a great foundation - now you can add some aesthetics if you wish (but it is not necessary!).

Here are some ideas & suggestions:

1. You could replace your text menu with buttons instead. Here's an example of a button:

If you're interested in doing something like that, you can make your buttons on You'll need to copy the HTML code they give you as well as download the images. Then, upload the images into your file manager and then drag an HTML widget over and paste in the HTML code. You'll need to adjust the code slightly to include the image url and to make it link. It would look similar to this:
<a href="YOUR PAGE URL"><img src="; onmouseover="this.src='; onmouseout="this.src='; /></a>

2. You can add a fading type of element to your photo links to help bring in an extra oomph. An example of this can be found on my site: - hover over the images. If you're interested in doing something like that, please go to the Yola Code Site and look under Fading Elements. Please read the rules first before grabbing the codes.

3. On your larger picture pages, perhaps adding a border around your images may be something you'd like to consider.

Please take a look at my comments on the screenshots below for further suggestions:







One last thing - I noticed that your text menu links do not work on any of the pages except for your homepage. This is probably something you may want to fix. =)

Please let me know if you need help doing anything.
