  • General Layout Help

    Hello people, this is my first post here, I hope I get an answer to my quetion.

    You'll have to add a table for this. Easiest way is to edit your Header and Footer templates. Add the first half of the table to the Header, and the second half to the Footer.

    Your table will have to look something like this (pardon the crude ASCII):

     - - - - - - -
     - - - - - - -
     |  |	   |  |
     - - - - - - -
     - - - - - - -
    In the top and bottom cells, you have your top and bottom images and other code, obviously.
    In the right and left cells you have your repeating backgrounds. For the forum you linked us to, they have this image as a repeating background:

    If you don't know much HTML, this project could be a bit fustrating.

      Thanks on the reply, I also figured out that I would have to split the some rows into three coloumns as you've illustrated in the ASCII (eh, I sould as if I'm writing a chemistry research paper).

      Anyway, I can generally know my way through HTML, I will check it and maybe post in the HTML section.
