Hi Guys,

I have just had a webdesigner sort out a layout for my eSports team, but its a half-bodge-job and hes lieft me with a horrible CSS and only part-updated graphics (new ones by myself) now the top banner is basically the colour scheme using the black from the sponsor logos + advert headers so they contrast against the site.

The site is meant to look clean and flow well using whites, greys and very simple CSS styling like this website: www.ukesn.org

Looking for someone to help out with the CSS if possible please!
currently the css thats editable in the admin panel looks like this im 99% sure that this is all the CSS that is used by the site (can you tell im new to CSS!? lol)

body {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 10px;
    scrollbar-base-color:#acacac;
    scrollbar-3dlight-color:#acacac;

Considering that you're asking someone to fix and/or refine your site's entire design, I would advise that you hire another webdesigner..

http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/forum59.html

It would not be easy to diagnose the problems in the CSS, without say, consultation, and access to your site's content management system. I would suggest that the HTML would be a better place to start than the CSS; based on a view source of the link you posted: the HTML is messy, doesn't conform to the standard of its declared document type, and defines things that would override any CSS.**

Time = money, and I don't think anyone will take this on as a favour.

** EDIT: Well, I just noticed based on your post that the link isn't your site. STILL what I said isn't innacurate, and it's even more difficult to diagnose CSS problems with no HTML reference..
