I did some more reading on your website and I recreated the pages using the DataAssist Wizard and created a catalog page, applied my template and they work somewhat...
the pages are in the private area.
The thumbs and fullsize images are not showing up on the results and details pages, although they are on the page.
I am reading the tutorial on how to change the fields for manufacturers and categories on the search page, to dynamic dropdowns. So I am good there.
