I have designed a personal blog template, and went to Firebug to see how long the page loads. It is loading in 23.47s. I want to cut the load time down to about 10-15 seconds. I had been using this background image, [img]http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc284/mdkallas/blog%20re-design/bckgrndimage.png[/img] but it takes the longest to load. So, I decided to go back and slice it into a smaller image. The slice image is 490×525. Here is the image I have sliced smaller.[img]http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc284/mdkallas/blog%20re-design/backdropdots.png[/img].
Then I would like this image to lay on top of the previous image. [img]http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc284/mdkallas/floralwatercolorbckgrnd.png[/img]
I am following Chris’ video screen cast #12. When I coded it the way Chris showed, it is not showing up in my ff browser. I would also like to know the proper coding to make this site, expandable centered site.
