Hey Philip,

Welcome to ocPortal.

I haven't taken a look at Duck's link, but his advice is always worth following.

I took a look at your page and it is very impressive - as far as I can see (site closed, of course). Tried a couple of 'down & dirty' arbitrary changes to the URL and it didn't matter what I entered there, it always came up with your site showing as it appears in my attachment.

Good luck with your build, and ask in here if you ever feel the need to clarify anything. I'm sure somebody will pick and run with it …




Take my advice. I'm not using it!
