Just thought that I would share it! Please tell me what you think! How can I improve it (remember that it has just opened, so be kind).

I don't know how to get rid of the "Welcome to the Frontpage" (yet). But I will as soon as I find that hidden in the scripting....... And I did get the site from a template that I heavily re-vamped. I guess that it is dynamic, but I plan to make it even MORE dynamic as soon as I develop the skills..... biggrin.gif

Barney,
does this mean that you won't be here anymore? or are planning on doing both? or phasing this one out?

No, I will be here, although maybe not posting quite so much. I won't abandon TMF!

^ Vin is correct in his template site. One of those is what I used for the Joomla template. Joomla is free and pretty easy to use (if you get a good "Joomla for Dummies" book). Took me about 2 days and a couple of false starts to get it going. I recommend NOT using the newest BETA release as it crashed on me twice......

I signed up yesterday and I haven't received the confirmation email as of yet. Did I get lost in cyberspace?

Nah -- they'll be getting in-touch soon.
When I joined Almaretta, (to get the discount on Warpia) they gave instant approval on the Amazon Charge Card but she already had an Amazon account and they were making a $117.54 sale.

I got the message that you signed up. You should be able to log in and start as soon as you'd like. Just let me know if you have issues signing in.

Oops --sorry I misunderstood.

Vin, thanks for the info. I guess I should have been a little more specific.

Perfect.

Welcome to frontpge has gone. How you did it ?

Joomla Template is a CMS site which I guess differs from a Dynamic Web Site.
