    Tried that but -

    I tried that but because of some background graphics it would not show up...mmm

    I tried most every table. Then- while trying to do some other tweeking I found the forumhome template. Adding another table before the header variable and closing it after the footer variable made it work just great.

    THANKS for your help!
    I am always appreciative of the help that we get from this site from users and owners alike.

    Try the header and footer.

    Open a simple table

    Code:
    AT THE TOP of the header or where ever you want your tables to begin.
    
    <table width="100%">
    <tr><td width="25%">
    
    </td>
    <td width="75%">
    and
    Code:
    at the top of the footer]
    </td></tr></table>
    Its fairly simple .... in about 3 or 4 places you need to remove the table begin / end that vbulletin forces.. other than that its not rocket science.

    OH HELP PLEASE

    I see the example web page above...
    I noticed there is a border around the entire LARGE table.
    Which template is this in?

    I have tried several and also modified the header...
    It does not work. I even tried making a table that eveything fit into but that bombed too.I have looked at the CSS coding. I just can't seem to find it anywhere. Please help.

    Thanks,
    Kehf

    You mean something like this?

    You need to go through some of the places and remove the table close / reopen that the default vB template has.

    Yes, it can be done, but the showthread page is laid out differently than most of the others, so it takes some special tweaking, which I haven't yet spent the time to figure out.

    One thing that messes you up is that the header template opens a table/row/cell, and the main templates have to close those.

    We haven't launched yet, but I'll send a URL for my dev site in a private message.
