    Well, I thought I would have a go at making our business website and see if its ok before outsourcing if needed.

    http://www.goflyoxford.co.uk

    Its taken me a long time but if I was to do it again it would be a lot easier. All done by trial and error.

    Started with the responsive theme and edited from there. I wanted the theme un responsive in the end and im working on stopping the menu changing to mobile style when the screen is made smaller.

    Comments please!

    Oh, and if anyone is in the London/Oxfordshire region and a web designer I could give you a few hours flying in return for ironing out the site.

    Good effort. One suggestion - you might want to have a look at how to do your background image though as on my monitor the background image is tiled and doesn’t go to the bottom of the screen which doesn’t look great.

    Hi
    Yes good stuff, well done! I'd keeping going with this and add more content to your news feed on the home page. I'd also work on the style more, you could use web fonts for the headers and make them look more interesting. I'd also change the opacity on your image default setting as your background is coming through and making a hard line through all images.

    Hi
    It looks like your body content is inheriting a css opacity setting which is effecting all of content (including your images). This is how you can see the clouds through your body content (white background area).

    No problem but when you scroll over an image you can see where the image ends (and leaves a blue background) and this creates a hard line across the image. This css probably came with your theme, if you are beginning with css I would just change your background image as suggested above and extend it to cover the lower area of the page.

    If you want to have a go with the css I'd change the background color to something like #6cc0ef (which matches the cloud/blue at base of image). You will also need to stop the background image repeating down by adding in 'background-repeat:repeat-x' to the background css statement.
