Have you got the html for the menu? Depends where the home icon is, but based on your description it's inside the element with id nav?

Welcome Tom.


First off totally love that you've taken this up after health issues, sharing your knowledge is an awesome thing to do. Design wise not a bad choice in WordPress theme. 'Technically' if you're friend is pretty handy with this sort of thing then I suggest they take a look with PageSpeed Insights to see if there's anything they can do about the issues raised, but don't panic, there are any high ranking sites for big companies that fail quite a few points here.


Content wise it's getting there. Might I suggest some kind of vocabulary highlighter with either the information on a tool tip or side note. For example in your 'Brick wall finishing touches and helpful tips!' article it talks about 'perp' and 'bed joints', thing is I've no idea what they are so a little click or tool tip would enlighten me whereas someone who knows what they are would carry on reading.


Funny enough I have a garden wall with loose bricks I want to have a bash at sticking back down, would love to see a guide on repairs and 'pointing'? I think that's what it's called when the cement mortar (look who learn't something new :D ) comes out of the joints of the face side?

I'd agree auto play is bloody annoying, reminds me of the JML adverts blasting out in Robert Dyas. I'd say use an image as a backer with hover play icon. Then use js to load the video where the image is when the visitor clicks play ... now the video is not part of the initial load and you won't scare people away, commonly found when people are browsing at work and an auto play lets the office know what they're up to ;)
