Hmm, I may be able to help you with something like that, although I did my GCSEs about 8-9 years ago.

Although if I'm going to be helping someone, it's going to be one or a few parts of the site, and I'll leave the design to the owner. ;)

I built the website last year, the following things happened:
  • I got 60/100 for it
  • I discovered web design was not my forte
  • Found out the exam board doesn't like websites. Especially French ones.
  • Binned my copy of Dreamweaver and decided to stick to databases instead for A-level, that way I don't have to spend endless hours searching over code...
  • Found out that to make a website you have to have some degree of intelligence. Preferably a high one.
Which may explain why you can design websites and not me

Hmm...

Which version of Dreamweaver were you using?

I prefer 2004 over the new version. I'm more used to it ^_^

That's the one! MX 2004. The software was easy to use, but the website design was really bad.

Now, I'm using Filemaker Pro 7 for the database. I think websites can be made with it if it's combined with FM Advanced Server, though I doubt it would be any better than Dreamweaver, if not worse.

Just re-read your message: Nope, I had to do the design as well-it was in the specification and I remember ending up with about 40 sheets of paper worth of website.
