    Did you add the style part yourself?
    I'm talking about the part shown below ...

    That's what the problem is. You use absolute positioning, but we all use
    different size monitors, so what I see if different than you.
    Delete all of the CSS style stuff that is not part of your WP theme.
    All of the layout things should be done within your theme CSS.


    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    #apDiv1 {
    	position:absolute;
    	width:144px;
    	height:298px;
    	z-index:1;
    	left: 2px;
    	top: 109px;
    }
    #apDiv2 {
    	position:absolute;
    	width:307px;
    	height:72px;
    	z-index:2;
    	left: 639px;
    	top: 25px;
    }
    #apDiv3 {
    	position:absolute;
    	width:145px;
    	height:44px;
    	z-index:3;
    	left: 2px;
    	top: 2px;
    	font-size: 14px;
    	text-align: center;
    }
    .monthlytotal {
    	color: #0F0;
    	font-weight: bold;
    }
    #apDiv4 {
    	position:absolute;
    	width:108px;
    	height:99px;
    	z-index:4;
    	left: 10px;
    	top: 389px;
    }
    #apDiv5 {
    	position:absolute;
    	width:113px;
    	height:34px;
    	z-index:5;
    	left: 982px;
    	top: 105px;
    }
    body {
    	background-image: url(bgwithpicture.jpg);
    }
    -->
    </style>

    EDIT:
    And I should mention that I can hardly read the small font and colors
    between fonts and background. Difficult color scheme and tiny fonts.
    You may have to address that issue also.


    EDIT AGAIN:
    Doesn't look very professional when there are numerous spelling errors like this:
    Take control and sing up TODAY!!

    3. After that all thats left is trading.

    NEVER hold into earnigns unless positioned


    I lost count after a while ...
    Use your spell checker and have someone proof-read it for you.

    style sheet`

    I added the style sheet in Dream weaver. I used my old WP theme and inserted it into my dream weaver. The reason I did this was I had no way of adding my sign in capabilities for members. That is the only reason I purchased DM and edited it through there. I've got my background image that I wanted to line up with the top layers. That is the only reason for the 'absolute' positioning.

    -I've been told that before with regards to the font size and colors. I will make that change.

    -I wish dream weaver had spell check! I haven't run through it yet as I'm just looking to get an idea of what I want to be known.

    I really do appreciate the input and help on everything though. Web design is just not my thing. If you are interested I can set you up with a free sign in for our service for all the help!

    Dreamweaver is the wrong tool for editing WordPress sites.
    You really have to edit everything by hand. Most of us use Notepad++
    as our text editor. It's free and it has great code highlighting.

    But, you're in a mode of "novice", as you indicated.

    WordPress is a PHP/MySQL script, so all pages are displayed using templates.
    They are not "static" HTML pages, like you would utilize with Dreamweaver.

    I think the key to your problem is to pick a different WordPress theme.
    A theme that has three columns. Then, you can add the members sign-in
    in the left column.

    The beauty of using WordPress is that you can switch themes and the content
    remains untouched. As with any theme, you will need to customize it with your
    own banner, graphics and other features.

    If your site is "for profit" and you have some sort of business budget, you should hire
    a freelance programmer to help get you back into the proper WordPress system.
    Sorry you had to buy Dreamweaver ... you can use it to learn more about HTML and CSS,
    but keep it away from PHP scripts like WordPress. You'll have nothing but headaches.

    And, I also recommend that you find a nice, free WP theme that has a conservative
    color scheme. Something more "business-like". A fluid width template that resizes
    gracefully for various browser/monitor sizes. And 3-columns for your new features.
