bin that method

you are using drag and drop method for building a dynamic site

im guessing that your not clued up on the coding aspect and rely on wizards to build it for you which is why you have run into trouble.

can i ask would you like to learn how to do this properly or if you just want me to help you with your current problem

Your site needs some serious work

you have images @ 200k + but are sizing them through html into thumbs. This is a huge mistake.

You need a good book to cover the basics of HTML and building websites before you start to even look into dynamic coding. You arnt running before you can walk, you are sprinting!!

I cant troubleshoot your problem because if i was to tell you a variable or IF statement was incorrect you wouldnt know what i was on about.

Start from the begining and get your HTML and image control sorted out first

This is all i can sugest at this stage.
