why don't you just do a Google search for free templates? and as far as what it should look like, i guess you need to further explain what the site is going to be about. Are you supporting or troops, bashing Busch for sending them over, recruitment, weapons, your experience, etc. But I guess something with some dark colors would be my choice. But I think you need to search for some free templates on your own. Do some of the leg work! :)

that's still pretty wide open. i think you need to do some more planning. let me give you an example. i did hat site and they wanted to attract young men between the ages of 12-25, that were of moderate income and enjoyed hip hop music. See what I mean. Now I could have built a site using the same images and similar content and it could have been geared towards vendors looking to sell. See the difference?

But look at these:

http://freesitetemplates.com/templates/ ... /Military/

http://www.templatesbox.com/category/mi ... /index.htm

http://www.boxedart.com/phpshop/members ... /mp_/59/77

Maybe these can give you some inspiration. Do you know Photoshop or another program in which you can build a template? Is the sole purpose of the site to share knowledge? I see you had some video game stuf on the current site.

Yeah, I know but I don't really want to do things for free anymore...

And by "...help you out with just about the most of it... ... I mean the programming and templating thing, and possibly some articles for you... but of course, at a pay...

LOL. Free help is so hard to come by these days. Help a newbie out :) You know when I first start dabbling, I was on another forum that exercised a lot of tough love. I learned what questions not to ask. So that being said. I would try and read some articles about design and developing a site first. then do some Html tutors. Then some CSS tutors. Flash tutors if you are using Flash. Then maybe javascript, then maybe a little php if you want a contact form. Oh and if you don't know Photoshop, you gotta get that in. So we will see you in a few months for another round of critiques. Or you could buy one of the templates already made and save yourself some time and headache and money for the aspirin. But you won't learn anything. Just like asking for help on mostly all of it. You don't learn like that. And I think a lot more people would be happy to help you if you took a couple steps on your own. :) Not pressed for time are you? If not, try to learn on your own. Buy some books, or watch some YouTube tutors. There is so much free stuff out here, except an open source replacement for Flash. When that day comes, it's all over. Anyways, there is so much free knowledge out here. You just have to put the write words in the search box. Good luck!

I'll focus on that part :lol: Not that I can't or never done in the past... actually I've done a lot of stuff for free...

What I mean to say is... he needs a template, great, I can help him. At his site he mentioned that he needs help with articles and he would probably would need some programming help. The request that I have isn't big... very light actually. Not only that, I got to pay my expenses too :lol:

But if this is impossible I can come up with something.
