I assume you'd like me to post some code on here; am I allowed to do that so I may resolve this issue?
It would be better to post a link to the uploaded page - can you do that? Just name it something that won't be linked to any other page and post that link here. Failing that, paste the code into a reply.
Understanding HTML and CSS is the key to keeping your hair. Using 'layers' for layout is a good way to jump on the slippery slope to baldness....
The funny part is - I am bald! Oh the irony.
The page is not uploaded yet but the original website we had done which we now don't like, is uploaded, so I'll add one page to it and post that here:
What we want is simply 1 or 2 pictures on the left of each page. Perhaps the original template code is wrong and that's why it's not helping. On this homepage, he'd like "Position of the Month" under the image, but not stuck on the side. If you could show me how I can place an image away from the edge, I'll be able to do it on each page. Problem is, whatever I do, it moves the whole website body and detatches from the top image/link buttons!
You're a God send if you can rectify this and I'll buy you many, many cookies.
So, this page is what you downloaded, and you then added content to it? YOW! Don't ever download anything from that site again. What a mess.
Standby. I'll get back on this thread with a better approach.
Hello Murray ACP,
Understanding you're a busy chap, I'd just courteously like to ask if you have had a chance to/will be able to, when convenient, get back to me on this issue?
Thanks once again for your intial response and comments.
Very sorry for the delay! Have picked up the thread again and will post back with a suggestion....
OK - check this page:
Look at the code. There is no absolute positioning there EXCEPT within the menu. I'm not happy with that being used there, but it's working OK, so leave it.
- the image links are all absolute. You may want to change these back to document relative.
- I have significantly simplified your CSS in the embedded stylesheet by removing unused rules, replacing those nasty .style selectors with more sensible descendent selectors, and adding a few new rules. Look carefully at what I have done.
- I have revised your layout a little by removing unnecessary containers, etc.
- I have created a div#leftside which you can use for holding your images. It's 220px wide and images will left align within it.
Check it out....
Sorry for the delay. I have been so busy with translations recently that this slipped my mind.
I'm eternally grateful for your efforts (and so is my friend).
I'll study what you have made different and increase my knowledge using this fantastic website and videos on YT.
If I could return the favour in anyway, I would.
What translations do you do?
French to English - can provide further details if required
