  1. Hosting For Small Sites

    Hello Does anyone have an affordable recommendation for UK hosting? I currently use TSO host, at £4.99 a month - only for a dozen or so small websites that I run - everything is fine except the fact that 70% of the control panel functionality doesn't work, and I have to raise a ticket for the smallest of tasks - database download, e-mail account adding, etc. They tell me nothing is wrong - but there is. So looking for somewhere with a similar package. Any suggestions? Thanks James
  2. Mucked up design

    I don't see a second menu bar? Maybe you have fixed it by now though.
  3. As mentioned above, Wordpress would be perfect for you. The first ever Wordpress site I did, I followed this book: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Create-Website-Using-WordPress-Weekend/dp/1781570310/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1510422209&sr=8-1&keywords=wordpress+in+a+weekend I think it would be perfect for your needs.
  4. WordPress Resizing images in captions

    I recently fixed the same issue on our website at the company I work at. It was one of the functions in the function file that I amended, drop me a pm next week if you still need help and I'll dig out my solution.
  5. What Software Should I Use?

    Squarespace, maybe? Barely touched it myself as I would always code something so don't know much about it.

    Hello and welcome. Post it in here http://www.webdesignerforum.co.uk/forum/28-website-reviews-and-feedback/ You might not be able to post links, so just do something like "webdesignerforum dot co dot uk" or whatever your website is.
  10. Greetings!

    Hello and welcome - also a self-taught developer.
  11. Webdesign color scheme..

    I'm not a designer, but the colour scheme mostly works for me. Not sure about the magenta type colour on some of the text - but otherwise it seems appropriate. I sometimes use the following for guidance on colour schemes: http://colormind.io/ http://plainas.github.io/cubecolors/#
  12. Customer Database

    I'm a front end guy so no idea - might be worth posting in the server side forum page http://www.webdesignerforum.co.uk/forum/95-server-side-php-databases-aspnet-etc/
  13. Computer science degree?

    I got my job from learning from places like Free Code Camp, and building a portfolio. My manager was looking for someone without a Computer Science degree - a self-starter that had taught him or herself to make websites. Clearly each job would be different. Perhaps look at job adverts as some do specifically look for Computer Science graduates. You don't need to get one to be a web developer. That is absolutely certain.
  14. Anyone ever worked with a really good PR agency that they could recommend, to help a fairly sizeable business get extra media coverage?
  15. Testing Images For Retina Display

    I thought retina displays were only on high-end MACs and iphone 7+? Must have badly misread!
