Hi,
I purchased a website a little while ago that was supposed to be easily maintained and I was supposed to get support with.  Well lets just say that things dont always work out how you think they were and I am stuck.
I need to update my homepage and I just cant make it work.

www.caboodleshops.co.uk

I have html knowledge but everything appears to be php.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Ta

Sarah

Hi and thanks for the reply!

I removed one of the banners and replaced with another one but that hasnt happened.  Also tried to add a category down the left-handside but without success.  I am used to editing documents in html and have managed to edit a couple of the other pages (i.e.) about and upload successfully but the front page it a nightmare. 

Regards
Sarah

someone hit mobile phones and look at the out come very bad.

EDIT

was this a free script or was it built for you.

what do you want it to look like tell us.

EDIT

see where you got browse i personly would use only half and the other half a dropdown box

see this website company that designed your site your notice that the pages are not long and not full of pictures, this is due to the fact that more pic you got the longer a webpage takes to load.

you need to shorten the webpages to get a real inpact in user responce, you also need to alter the browse links to shorten it.

Wow!  Thanks for the responses - I am delighted!

I thought that the front page was too busy myself and that it takes too long to load so I want shot of the bumpf in the middle really I suppose.  You know, sale banners etc.

I purchased the website being told that it would be easy to update and that it had far more paid advertisers than it does.  Have given up pursuing the person who sold it me as I am getting know-where.

Basically I need to know why I cant edit that front page and why I cant change the category listing as I want to.

I am fine with all the databases etc that run behind the scenes.

Soto-hosting is where I go to try and edit the pages.  I am quite prepared to give anyone who would take a look my user-name and password to have a look but I clearly dont want to post them here.

Many thanks
Regards
Sarah

yeah, you cant trust anyone on the net. best thing is to send someone a file and see if they can change it that way
