I am getting emails saying my web site www.Press53.com will not load. I tried on my phone and iPad and the page will not come up. Can you look into this please?

Hi Kevin: It's slow to load, but it's up: http://www.press53.com/
Are you using sitebuilder plus or desktop or the new homestead web builder program?
The site is too wide. If you're using SB+, you can narrow the pages using Page Settings > Advanced Page Settings. Please advise.

I am using Sitebuilder Plus. Should I be using the new Homestead Web Builder? Will my current pages transfer over without issue? Thanks for any advice. P.S. I've notice these last couple of weeks that out pages have been loading very slowly.

Using the new web builder will require a complete rebuild from scratch. It is a responsive program and better suited for the new Google world wide web architecture. I've used SB+ for years. It is easy to change the page width to conform to the screen size. The monitors are wider now but not as wide as your page. Page width recommendation would be 1300 pixels. You may experiment with that to suit yourself. As it is, I need to scroll left and right to view the full page content. I'd prefer to see the entire page on my monitor. Can change the width and let's see what happens. You can always change it back. You'll need to change the width on every page individually. Adjust your index page to 1300 pixels and let me know when done. The width may have something to do with your loading time.

I now have the main page set at 1300 pixels, so I hope that resolves the issue. I'll be working on making sure all pages are 1300 pixels. Thanks again for the advice.

That's better! All the content is visible. You can probably go as wide as  1400-1500. The new Web builder is mobile friendly. You can use the homestead free Duda program to make your SB+ more mobile friendly.

Hi Kevin: Your home page takes tool long to load. I suggest you move the content to another page and abbreviate your home page to include an introduction, your mission statement and your identity, location and a feature item or topic. If your home page were as long as it is wide, It will pop. Try it. You can always change it back.

Thank you for the suggestion. I'll work on getting that done ASSP.
