    For me, customizing your own social media icons reflect creativity and imagination. However, it may tend to look less professional because of the artistry of some people. So if you have a corporate website,...

    So here's the deal... I am redesigning a site for my school's newspaper; however, for some reason in Firefox and IE the site doesn't show up correctly... the left hand nav bar and calendar is very messed up. The odd thing is that it shows up perfectly in Safari. I don't know what's wrong. Can anyone help?

    The temporary address is: http://www.musclerestoration.com/advocate/Website

    Also, what do you think of the design?

    Thanks!

    Your best bet is to post the CSS code. It's easier for us to look it over.

      Your mark-up is were I'd start because its a mess. Did you create this dreamweaver? If so its surprising it doesn't work.

        Yup

        I am designing it in Dreamweaver. It's just tables, so I am not too sure what went wrong. It loads fine in Safari for whatever reason, and shows up perfect, too, in Dreamweaver.

          Holy God, I hadn't looked at the code.

          First, the page loads crazy-slow.
          Second, you need to get that CSS external. It's just convoluting your code.
          Third, you need to lose those tables. I got just past the internal CSS and stopped looking for problems because the entire document is about 10x the size it needs to be. Debugging code like that is far more effort than it's worth and learning basic CSS would save you a lot of effort.

            I haven't ever used CSS is the problem I'm stuck in a rut for sure. Tables were always just the easiest thing to use. Any suggestions of what I could do? This thing needs to be done within a week, ah!

              No problem, don't panic. If you go to the resources forum, there should be some decent CSS tuts around there. The type of CSS you're looking to do is really dirt simple and not that different than the tables you're currently using, the main difference is that they require much less code and MUCH less hassle.

              I'm not at my computer that has all my bookmarks but if I get over there later today, I'll try to dig up a few tuts for what you need to know. It won't take you long to figure out at all. You've obviously got the design part down, the CSS won't be that hard.

                Sweet deal. I will look around and if you have time, I would greatly appreciate you taking the time to find some specific ones you think I should look into.

                In the mean time, since I "have the design part down," what do you think about the design? I had a template site (www.ucdadvocate.com) to work with to start out and hated it, but wanted to still stay near the design in a way. Any suggestions design-wise?
