I would like someone to look and see why some pages have the "logo" and others don't. I can republish to correct this but then something else goes wrong..Like the logo doubles on some pages.Look at --> www.eastflatmusic.com (http://www.eastflatmusic.com) Many thanks B.Flat

On the pages that show the logo the file size is 778x114px.
One pages that do not show the logo you have a different file 792x205px scaled to 778x114px.
The logo has a different name bv01161.png, bv01218, etc. on every page.
Are you creating a logo file for every page?
Insert the same image on every page, save and publish.
BTW the alt tag is empty.

The alt tag is to name the image. Use keywords for the description of the image. The keywords do not have to directly relate to the image.
Right click on the image and select: Properties, select the general tab and you will see the Alternate Text section. SE's do not like it when alt tags are "blank"
Templates ??? Generally you have 1 template.

You do not publish the template.
Use the template to make your index page...File....Save As...index
Now open the template again...design whatever page next...File.....Save As..whatever
Open the template again and design the next page.....and so on...and so on
I viewed your source code (html) and also checked the properties of your image(s).

Off to a good start. If you are worried about SE's finding you (http://www.myefcw.com/Community Pics.html) should be (http://www.myefcw.com/communitypics.html) ignore the ()'s. SE's do not see uppercase letters or URL's with spaces in them. Also, anytime you are creating links to the home page index.html (or index.php) is not needed.
www.yourdomainname.com works great. Saying that, if you have published a index.html and a index.php and want to use the php version you will have to delete the html version from your server.
Some links are not live but I figured that you have not gotten that far yet.
