    That’s perfect, except when the user submits the form it would need to report the name of the course as well. Is something like that possible?

    That is definitely something to think about. Now I still have to figure out what to quote for this project. It sounds like I may have to put in more work than what I charge for on this one in hopes of getting the future work.

    Yeah, I’m assuming it’s something in the JS… but unfortunately I don’t quite know what I’m looking at yet. Javascript beginner would be an understatement.

    I have also noticed that it looks like a missing image graphic or something shows up when you initially hover over the thumbnail. I would be super grateful for any insight into this whole thing. All I want is for the image to enlarge in the middle of the screen when hovered over.

    Yes, what we’re doing is taking a design that we created and turning it into a template with certain editable areas for specific page content. Would something like WordPress or Drupal work for large ecommerce sites? I have only played around with WP a little and don’t know the limitations of any CMS out there.

    Thanks for the reply Paulie_D, I agree completely that DW templates are indeed unwieldy. I would much rather use something other than DW altogether, but I’m stuck using what everyone else is using. This whole redesign is quite overwhelming.

    While we’re on the subject, does anyone have any suggestions on good learning resources for whichever they think is best to learn next? Remember I’m not from a programming background, so anything geared that way would be great. Thanks again.

    That does make sense. I come from a design background instead of programming, so I’ll be starting from the very basics to say the least! :) Switching gears at 33 years old is a little intimidating, but this is truly what I want to do so I’m willing to do what I have to… I just want to make sure I do it the right way.

    Thanks guys for the input.

    I just bought a new 27″ iMac (an upgrade from my PowerPC 20″ iMac) and I love it. I have been a Mac user for several years and I just can’t go back. The OS is just far superior for my needs, and you don’t have near the trouble with viruses or spyware on a Mac system. However I do have to admit I haven’t had the opportunity to check out Windows 7 yet. I guess I’m an Apple fanboy, what can I say :)

    Thanks for the tip, that really helps my understanding of validation.

    Will CSS3 features and vendor specific prefixes validate properly?

    Thanks Vinny, I’ll definitely check into that. Unfortunately I know little to nothing about JS so I’m your typical cut and paster until I can master css… then I’ll move on to learning JS. Thanks again!

    @iancoates – It should be fixed now. There were a couple lines of code that should have been deleted but weren’t. Thanks for that catch.

    Anyone have any suggestions on how I could reduce the file size of my larger photos? A couple of them are hitting 260k. That seems pretty large to me, but I could be wrong. The main problem is that I’m using a transparent PNG because I have CSS3 gradients in the background. Anyway, thanks for the advice everyone.

    Another, possibly silly question… I’m eventually going to need a dropdown menu from one of the navigation buttons. What is the easiest way to accomplish that? I’m having a heck of a time getting it to work properly. Any insight would be great. Thanks!
