I am new to dreamweaver and web design. I created the site below and it looked fine in the ie browser preview. I published it to the web and it looked fine(on the same computer I used to make it with). However, I have viewed it on 2 different laptops(all with ie browser). And the spacing between elements is way off, my horizontal spry menu is doing a stair step thing and some images float off the screen to the right.
I used a premade template to construct the page. I'm beginning to think I used the wrong template or somehow 'broke' the template. The only thing I know to do now is start with a new template and rebuild all the pages. However, I want to make sure I don't make the same mistakes.
1. Is there some relatively simple way to salvage the pages i've made?
2. If I need to rebuild the pages what template should I use? I'm pretty sure I'd use one with one column(sideshow), a header(company logo) and a footer(spry horizontal menu). Would I use a "fixed" layout or "elastic"?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Start with examining your folder hierarchy and check all your links to see if they match it.
For example, in regard to your CSS failure,
The page you posted has links which expect your SpryAssets folder to be one level above the folder holding the page.
<link href="../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarHorizontal.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarVertical.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
The leading ../ means go up one level higher which for this page would be the rai folder.
I don't believe your SpryAssets folder is there.
