Yea my boss was an idiot when it comes to coding.
All done original using asp (which I had to learn from scratch as my boss called php "riddled with wholes and a non-professional language") running from an access database (again my bosses choice).
Aren't PHP and MySQL like the standards for both amateur and professional websites of any kind?
He had the mentality of if its free it has to have something up with it.
Now I'm happily demo'ing the site on XAMPP, using GIMP to modify the images and firefox as the main troubleshooting/testing browser (IE tab ftw) all working great with php and a mySQL database.
Pretty much fallen in love with CKEditor too, such a nice way to let other people do all the effort of copy, paste and formatting static content.
