  1. Got it ...Thanks again! BTW, I like your home page - especially the color scheme Zad
  2. I found the contact form online - the extra field was added as a "honeypot" to foil spambots (that's why the top field was hidden in the original code). The image is just a placeholder; it's not intended as the final version. Thanks for the corrections on the width, and the break & center tags (I'm used to older HTML - am still learning CSS). I actually wanted to keep the image on the left, but with your code I should be able to puzzle it all out. Zad
  3. Hi Andrea, I appreciate your feedback. No, I don't have a link to anything yet - the code I submitted is all there is at the moment. Can you give me an example of how to float the image with the form in a div? Thanks, Zad
  4. I'm trying to line up an image and contact form side-by-side using a table. I can't seem to get the bottom of the image to line up vertically with the bottom of the form's message window, and also have it look the same in IE, Firefox, and Chrome. Thanks for your time... <html> <head> <style type='text/css'> .hidden { display: none; } </style> </head> <body> <table width="900" border="0" align="center" cellspacing="10"> <tr> <td width="499" height=""><div align="center"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.co
  5. Wickham, Thanks very much for your response - I'm not particularly interested in applying the "rotate" style, anyway. I had never heard of it before now... Zad
  6. I started to use this template but discovered that some of the CSS doesn't work in IE7 (as can be seen by pasting the URL into NetRenderer). In IE7, most of the linked text doesn't show applied styles - only plain blue underlined HTML links are displayed. This doesn't happen in Firefox, Chrome, and newer versions of IE. The CSS appears to validate OK. Does anyone know what's wrong?... Here's the CSS: @import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Vollkorn); @import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster); * { padding: 0; margin: 0; } body { backgroun
  7. Thanks for responding... I would use the config files if I knew how to reference them from the player html, but there are no instructions on the player site for that. The "documentation" shows an example HTML file that does not represent what the generator actually spits out. Since I can't extrapolate from the example as to how to modify the generated code, it's of no use. From the parameter descriptions, it looks like I need to add one or more "|" characters somewhere in each MP3's URL in the player's HTML code to display titles. If I could determine where they go, I think I could
  8. I'm trying to use the online generator at http://flash-mp3-player.net/players/multi/generator/ to create an MP3 player for a website. I can get it to work, but I have to guess at things because there are basically NO directions, and a thorough Google search turns up nothing in the way of a useful generic tutorial. The main problem I'm having is how to get the player to show the actual song title instead of the MP3's URL. Also, I'm not sure what the "Configuration XML" and "Configuration Text" files are for, or how to implement them. Do I even need either one? Except for the song title
  9. Here are a couple of simple CMS approaches that can be used on an existing site without having to resort to Wordpress, Joomla, etc: http://www.cushycms.com http://www.snippetmaster.com
  10. First, thanks so much for your help PB1UK. I tried posting on another "beginning CSS" forum several days ago and no one responded I'm still having trouble getting this to work. Here's my actual code - sorry it's such a mess; I'm still trying to make the transition from html to css; Index page: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <title>Matt's Place</title> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf
  11. I'm creating a site for a friend. The basic 2 column layout is shown in the attachment below. I would like to have the slideshow in the right column remain in exactly the same place from page to page. If the top paragraph length is changed (by removing or adding a line), it causes the slideshow to move up or down. How can I use CSS to prevent this? Thanks!
  12. No problems in other browsers. I have saved your code changes to my original page link for the benefit of others. Again, your help is much appreciated .
  13. Wickham, that renders perfectly in all the browsers I tested it in. Thank you for coming through again! As mentioned earlier, is it possible to alter the CSS so the vertical white lines appear between the menu "buttons" as seen in my example?: http://xrl.us/ben8g7
  14. newseed, I must be misunderstanding... #centered_menu { background-color: #ddd; float:left; width:802px; <----- Should I change this to 782px? That looks wrong in IE6 & Firefox... margin: 10px; overflow:hidden; position:relative; }
  15. Thanks, but the corrected menu bar is shifted to the right in IE6. I don't think that browser likes the new margin settings (I use http://netrenderer.com to check compatibility). Also, is it possible to retain the vertical white lines between the menu "buttons" as seen in the example link in my last post?
  16. One more question... Using CSS, how would I add a full width (gray) background to the menu bar, like this?: http://xrl.us/ben8g7 Thanks.
  17. Thanks, Wickham - that worked great! I have updated the code in my original links using your suggestions.
  18. Thanks, but content top padding only works in IE6. This is frustrating...
  19. Changing the content top margin works in Explorer, but has no effect in Firefox.
  20. Thanks - that helps. Now I can control the spacing at the top of the menu by changing the height value of the header. I still can't seem to adjust the clearance at the bottom of the menu, though...
  21. First of all I want to thank those who have helped me earlier This is a great forum! I'm trying to add a centered menu to a page. I can't determine how to position the menu vertically so that it's spaced evenly between the header and the content divs. I placed a break in the HTML just below the menu (to push it up a bit), in order to help illustrate what I'm attempting to do. Here is a link: http://xrl.us/ben37m ...the CSS is here: http://xrl.us/ben38t BTW, the code for the menu was adapted from this site: http://xrl.us/ok5y9 (Mathew James Taylor's Design blog).
  22. Wickham - Thanks for all your help. The image I am trying to position has these dimensions: width=141, height=171. The taller size apparently pushes the text (under the image) down so that it overlaps the footer, especially when viewed in Safari. How do I prevent this?
  23. Header Content column Yak yak... More content Blah blah... Left column ...some text here Right column ...Rilvan quis lectus ac nulla mattis auctor aliquam footer
  24. I'm trying to overlay an image (and some text below it) directly over two adjacent columns, like this: http://snipr.com/css.image There won't be any content in the bottom section of the left & right columns - only the image. How is this done...I assume that I have to use absolute positioning? BTW, I will be using an external style sheet. -Thanks
  25. Sorry, I have updated the CSS on the old link. Thanks for the the content div height tip .
