This is the template I want to use...LOL of course I still have to customize it but yay I finally figured out how to even get the template to show. I am so sorry it is taking so long but this is definitely not as simple as it was here. Let me know what you think?

LOL ok I guess I'm just a little excited and I'm sure you all are tired of the updates but yay I got Cindyy's banner up. I hope Cacity this makes you feel better at least somewhat regarding the site name?

Do we want to keep the homepage black? IMO we should because it looks great with Cindyy's banner. Or is it too dark and bleak?

Well there are some things I still can't figure out but the blue buttons at the top actually work for Community (which directs you to here), Blog, and Photo Gallery. cheers

Every thing is off centered now so I need to work on that and for some reason I can add stuff to the middle column but the old stuff won't go away...urghhh!

Oh and I can't figure out how to add things into the tables on the left and right side!

Still working on it! scratch

I can't decide! Big help I am. It looks great but it is dark. Decisions, decisions, decisions. I need more coffee first!

banner is amazing, I love it!!!

Yes I have seen it but they are using a way different template. At this point I'm not even sure if I will be able to stay with the template I'm using now because I can't figure out how to take the content off of the 3 sections and put my content in. I am probably going to have to buy a template and I won't be able to do that until the end of this month (they are pretty expensive) but I am going to keep working on this one and hopefully I can figure it out. I think I have to go into the CSS code for the rest of it and I am only familiar with HTML. So it will take a lot of experimenting around.

Just an update on the new site....

Urghhh I have been working on and off all evening and I still cannot figure out the CSS coding. The problem is...I can't remove the content that is already on the template and replace it with Matt stuff. So if anyone knows CSS coding PLEASE HELP! As always I will continue beating my head up against the wall until I figure it out! scratch

Well this isn't working. For some reason I don't think it is possible to change the way the template is. Which is weird because why would they make a template that you couldn't fully customize. I add stuff and it just moves down all of the crap that is on there that I want off. Plus it is not putting them in seperate columns.

I guess I will just have to break down and buy a template but sorry that won't be for another 2 weeks. I am going to look at some now. I will post some of the choices.

Of course hopefully we could change the guitar to a piano! It's only $55 so not too bad!

Thanks Cecilie! I'm really disappointed that I can't figure it out. I really like that template. I'm not really wanting a flash one like the one I posted. Oh well we will figure something out. I'm going to post my afro guy because he makes me smile! afro

Yay, finally I am getting somewhere but it still needs a lot of work. Any suggestions? It's pretty messy right now but take a look and tell me what you think it needs or maybe doesn't need?

And who voted on the poll I set up? Weird?

I'm done working for now but I am far from finished. I just didn't want anyone to think it was completed.

I don't know that is one of the things I'm looking into. I actually want to make them white with black lettering. They use to have white lettering but I figured out how to change that but so far I haven't discovered out how to change the backgorund coloring. I kind of want to keep with the black and white piano theme...lol it matches his tour colors.

Hey Jenna,

I just registered at the new site. I am the third member!! Very cool. I think the site looks great.

BTW, the confirmation email I received about registering did not have the link that I had to click highlighted. I had to highlight a line and a half and paste it into browser. Might be hard for some. I don't know if you have any control over that.

Great job!!!!
