    I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering
    issues with your site. It appears as if some of the written text within your posts are running
    off the screen. Can someone else please
    provide feedback and let me know if this is happening
    to them as well? This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this
    happen previously. Thanks

    Like videos on the internet. I think people should have to have proof, cause there are a lot of trolls, you know people with no life that have nothing better to do than screw things up for everyone else..

    Is Joomla software harder than Dreamweaver to learn. I have been told that Joomla is easier than Dreamweaver. Do Joomla make its own codes like Dreamweaver. I want to learn it and I want to buy the software. Please give me your opinion. Do I need to buy the Joomla program or not? . . Thx, God bless, take care! .
