thanks for the replies and kind words. The pics were broken for a while until i added a new “table type” into my reset.css file to basically force the table to have the proper spacing between images.

I have added a flash banner widget to the top of the home page and added many more descriptions and products. I will be linking in the authorize.net info this week and finalizing our shipping contract with fed ex. We hope to go live in a week or 2 smile

I am having a problem with the RSS feed no longer working, maybe its just my outlook but I doubt it. I think it has something to do with me moving the magento install folder to the server root directory. Can someone validate that the RSS feed is not working also so i know its just not my computer >>> http://www.reefjunglelive.com/corals.html?SID=13ebbaeaa1e926534ab708f37a8b3e1d Thanks.

@Atomic- I created a new table class in my reset.css file so that we could use a nice clean table for the product statistics. I was not sure what the final look of the table would end up being so I chose to use a table class so that all tables will update when I edit the info in the css file. So basically it is nothing more than a simple table.

My goal was to have a graphic looking table that was not too big and not too small so when you compare products it looks very clean and professional. Having a clean site that focuses on the products more than the navigation and graphics was my biggest goal from the start of this site.

thanks,
Steve

that wasnt modern theme, it was a purchased theme from, not sure if they created it from the ‘modern’ theme your speaking of. Is the header still too large for you, are you referring to the main logo? or the actual header table?
