Hi Guys

First post so be nice please :D

I maintain the following site http://www.rochedalerovers.com.au - I must stress the 'maintain' word, I have no knowledge of HTML or CSS. I had no say in the build of the site and it is pretty basic, even for a small local football site.

My queries are as follows...

1) My version info says i'm running 1.0.13, is this a detriment to making improvements to the site?

2) The horizontal banner at the top of the page is not required, is it possible to remove this and if so, how? I can find nothing in modules or positions that will allow me to do so.

3) I would love my vertical main menu to have the sub menu's appear when I hover over the Menu item. Is this easily done or a complex process.

4) Are their any sites that can be recommended where live help can be sought from experts, I guess a site where experts offer their services.

I hope this post is in the right place, I have spent sometime researching the 'hover' menu's but have found no definitive answer.

I hope someone can help me as the site needs a bit of an upgrade that is beyond my skills (or lack of >:( )

Cheers

Hi,
Yes, it is an old version of Joomla you are using which could be detrimental. Some good places to do some initial reading that may be of help:

http://docs.joomla.org/Category:Tips_and_tricks
http://docs.joomla.org/Category:FAQ

Also, http://www.siteground.com/tutorials/joo ... pgrade.htm
http://docs.joomla.org/How_do_you_upgra ... la!_1.5%3F

There isn't much support for 1.0 now, which is why no-one has replied yet - but it is definitely worth doing some learning and persevering!

Thanks Jan

I am having a look, I managed to removed the code for the horizontal banner, but unfortunately my coding skills end about there...

Trying to create this extended menu is a killer, think it will be worth upgrading first and foremost.

Thanks again
