'See more coverage' link not working.
Their is a reason for this, i am trying to work out how i link to an article that is not on the front page, i am unsure how at this time to obtain the url from the backend to link to it.
Create a new menu item >>> menu item type Articles
Article layout ...... Select the Article and save. copy the link from the menu. Then delete the link.
Or start a new Article create a link and then click the Edit code icon and snatch the link from there. No need to save the Article. (JCE editor is goog for that).
Header loading after page makes the page look like it's jumping rather than including the page in the Template.
In your Template's index.php file find the div that contains the call for that modules position (using http://www.midlanzcomputers.com/dev/?tp=1
it looks like advertisment
is the position. Edit the corresponding class/id in the css file by adding height:250px;
, experiment with hight until it is correct. (hint, downloading the relevant files to your PC and editing them with something like HTML-kit,then uploading with its internal ftp is quicker. It prevents the need to save until the edit is correct).
..../dev/our-services/buisness-services looks much like the other two pages.
I take your point, maybe i should merge the two repair sections together?
.../dev/our-services takes you to .../dev/our-services/Archives (in breadcrumbs)
Again....this is a trivial one for me, not sure why it is doing this, i will have to look into that.
Also there appears to be no structure to the site. General blurb about your services includes many things but the menu does not follow the structure of the blurb.
I don't understand what you mean by this.....can you ellaborate?
It appears that you added menu items as an after thought rather than structuring the content of your site. The disjointed appearance probably reflects that you have not set Sections/Categories before you wrote your Articles.
As above care to add a bit more detail?
Remember how, at school we are taught to plan essay's ? (well they did at my school). With pen and paper, words that summarise what you do. create headings, under these create sub-headings. Under those expand what the are. Much like a flow chart. "Structure follows strategy"
You then have your Sections and Categories for Joomla. Also you have your main text for the Articles. Create the Articles and assign them to the appropriate Section/Category. When you have your Sections and Categories Articles then you have the structure for your menu. "form follows structure"
No postal address on the contact page makes it look like you are working from home part time.
The main base is home and i don't really want my home address on the website if it was an office or smallholding then i would choose otherwise. For the buisness model address is not REALLY essential.
Yes, it is very obvious that you are based at home, too obvious. But good planing of the site and contact page will avoid the absence of a postal address less obvious.
A couple of other things:
You may consider getting a .co.uk address, 'parking it' and forwarding it to your main site ?
provides free local (std) code phone numbers. When the number is called it can be answered on the PC (earphone/mike) that is if you did not want your home number on the site. It only cost's if you buy an account to phone out, incoming calls are free and so is the voice message box.
