Issues with simple wordpress website

Hey guys, I am using Nicks 'How to create a website' website to test wordpress.

I am changing that website into a wordpress website, the front page looks good no issues but the rest of the site is acting strange.

The images are freaking out on the contact page and the image on the about page does not even show up.

I must have made some mistakes with the wordpress php somewhere.

One thing I should say though, is it a good idea to use templates as the webpages? Meaning creating a page called about on wordpress then code up the about page as a template then link it up with the about page on wordpress? Seems like a good idea but not sure if that is causing issues.

Would be very happy if you guys could take a look see what you think.

The website is live and should be up to date I am using an not in use domain from godaddy for the hosting.

How many page templates does your website have and which ones are you using for each page? What are your settings for your websites "Front Page Displays" under the Settings --> Reading?

Your "About" page is linked to http://www.dannymsmallman.com/home/ Change the Title to "About" and edit the permalink to http://www.dannymsmallman.com/about/

What page template are you using for the Blog page?

Hey Cristian, sorry my reply too so long.

I have done some updating of the site since.

But it has three as it stands all of them controlling three different pages on the website. It does not seem to create any problems, other than maybe SEO?

A static page, the Front page display is set too. Not sure why About is using Home. I will make the change you said.
