Amy,

It's a very well put together site, and very clear and to navigate around too. You've set a very high sandard for people's free websites on RootsChat! Well done. :)

One thing though, how do I add a 'hit counter'?

Right, I added a hit counter and so far (only three days I know  ::)) I've had, on average, 20 hits a day....

Also I did my first 'update' today!!

I can't thank everone enough for giving me the confidence to go ahead and try this. I'm sorry to keep going on but I never thought I'd be able to build a website, and I did!!

Thanks everyone!!!!

Amy

Well done - it looks good, I love the rollover bits.

my site through Rootschat

www.rootschat.com/history/hastings

started off with a just a few hits per day - now after 1 month I am getting 150 - 200 hits per day and rising.

If the interest is there - you will get the hits

Once again, well done
