    been working all day on re-designing my website. I got it up and running, I love the new design.... it's a lot better than it was.

    www.SorberaGuitars.com


    Tell me what you think... and if you see any problems with it, let me know. I still have a ton more info to add to it, but there aren't enough hours in the day. lol

    very nice, wouldn't it be worth centering the whole thing? on my screen it looks neither center or aligned to the left...


    overall i like the feel and professionalism of the site.

    pm me if you want to know how to center the site for all screen resolutions (doubt you do...)

    my brother uses Adobe GoLive and he said that he doesn't like the way it's 'centering code'(I guess?) works...

    so, if you know some CSS code or something that would work... I'd be more than happy to try it out.

    looking at its site widest point.. which is 814px, if you wrap <div id="wrapper"> </div> around all your content:




    <body><div id="wrapper">
    <div id="logo">
    <a href="index.html"><img src="images/mainlogo.jpg" alt="" height="109" width="351" border="0"></a></div>

    _uacct = "UA-2243038-1";
    urchinTracker();
    </script>
    <div id="bar">

    <div id="gallerylayer">

    <div id="pricinglayer">

    Unlike a mass produced guitar you get in a music store, each Sorbera Guitar is handmade to fit your playing style. We work with you one on one, to design and ultimately build your custom instrument, at a price you wouldn&#x2019;t have previously thought possible.

    <p>Your guitar will be built with top of the line, customized options not available on off the shelf guitars.</p>
    <p>Each guitar is completely hand built from start to finish by one person; ensuring a level of quality and attention to detail that greatly exceeds assembly line methods.</p>

    About Us
    </p>
    <p>Born in Germany, the Sorbera Brothers were raised with the love of fine details and excellent craftsmanship, as is displayed in all their work. Everything they set their hands to do they do with tremendous enthusiasm and the desire to succeed.</p>
    <p>Their love of music started early on in life. The desire to understand how instruments work and operate was so great that through all the studying, they decided to pursue the fine art of Lutherie.</p>
    <p>Self taught, working for years honing their skills, asking advice from the masters, and acquiring the equipment they needed, they started building their first guitars. Other musicians that saw their work were amazed and inquired about having the Sorbera Brothers build them custom instruments for themselves. This was the birth of their business, Sorbera Guitars.</p>
    </div>

    <div id="guitar1">
    <img src="images/homeguitar1.jpg" alt="" height="176" width="288" border="0"></div>
    <div id="guitar2">
    <img src="images/homeguitar2.jpg" alt="" height="176" width="288" border="0"></div>
    <div id="guitar3">
    <img src="images/homeguitar3.jpg" alt="" height="176" width="288" border="0"></div>
    <div id="guitar4">

    <img src="images/homeguitar6.jpg" alt="" height="176" width="288" border="0"></div>
    </div>
    </body>



    then add the rule in the CSS section

    #wrapper {
    width:814px;
    margin:0 auto;
    }



    your design would be centered on that page, make these changes on all pages to center them


    EDIT:

    i have just notices you have used absolute positioning on some elements this may have the possibility of breaking the positions, if it does just delete the wrapper CSS rules
