    Please assess my Site and give recommendations

    Hi all,
    This is about my second "paid" job for a website. I wouldn't say I've mastered the act of coding so I'd like your honest assessment and don't hesitate to give recommendations that I can improve on.
    Like right now, am at a loss on how to make the contact form work.

    So, please let me know what y'all think of my "work"

    Thanks.

    Very stylish site. The contact form won't work because the "action" setting of the form is blank:

    <form action="" id="contacts-form" method="post">

    You need to set up a file on the server, written in PHP, to process the input. This can be the contact page itself. In which case it has to be called "...ContactUs.php". You need to learn how to retrieve post variables and process them into an email which is sent to your email account. It is fairly straight-forwards, but is a separate language from HTML and CSS, that you need to learn.

    By the way, it is better not to use spaces in file names. Use hyphens "-" or underscores "_" instead, or just capitalisation e.g. "ContactUs.php".

    On second thoughts, there are plenty of pre-written contact form scripts available. Using one might be a more realistic solution.
