Thread: Discussion Topic: Layouts

    I used to use iframes for some of my sites, and if you know how to integrate it seamlessly, like borderless and la la, it works very well.

    Except for browsers that dont support iframes...

    And faltzer, just wondering if you knew that the pic in your sig has been broken for the past several days. And also I was browsing thru your site and happened to click on the Gold/Silver section and saw that you said G/S was the 3rd generation of games... might wanna fix that.

    I'm using Dragonfree's first layout on my new website.

    But my problem is the background. I have this:

    background:#FFFFFF;

    and changed it to this:

    background:#http://www.freewebs.com/xd375/background.bmp;

    but it won't work.

    Its not working because you are doing it wrong, # should always be followed by a number which is the hex code for a colour.

    If you want a image background you need to add differnt HTML, to get the code for your background add <img src="http://urltoimgar.com">.

    Just so you know the link doesn't work. What eewness said seems right...

    I love TCoD too. ^__^
    It's my site, fear it.

    Less than %.001 of all people on Serebii are named AgentChronon. If you are one of that %.001 percent, copy and paste this into your sig (started by AgentChronon)

    Buoysel= awesome. It will always be that way. Forever. If you think you are a bigger Buoysel fan than me, PM me and I will correct you.

    You need to use this:
    HTML Code:
    body {
    background-image: url(http://www.freewebs.com/xd375/background.bmp);
    }
    Also, you'd better use another format for your pics than bmp.

    I think the most important thing about layouts is, that the colors aren't hurting your eyes.

    Yeah, if you're using paint then save the files in PNG format. You wont lose quality, and they load faster.
    And the link isnt working because of that ; being included in the hyperlink

    body {
    color:#000000;
    font-family:verdana, sans-serif;
    font-size:10pt;
    background:#FFFFFF;
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
    }

    ^That's what I have.^
    I try putting <I>
    HTML Code:
    body {
    background-image: url([url]http://www.freewebs.com/xd375/background.bmp);[/url]
    }
    in and
    HTML Code:
    <img src="http://www.freewebs.com/xd375/background.bmp">
    but none work. And Paint in Windows 98 can't save anything other than BMP and my parents won't let me install PaintShop Pro or Corel Draw or any of that stuff that just sits there but hardly ever gets used.

    HTML Code:
    <body background="http://www.freewebs.com/xd375/background.bmp">
    Put that in the "body" section.

    This is what I have for the beginning:

    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>The Pokémon Forest! Created By XD375!</title>
    
    <style type="text/css">
    
    body {
    color:#000000;
    font-family:verdana, sans-serif;
    font-size:10pt;
    background:#FFFFFF;
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
    }

    Okay, but see where you have </head> in your page? And then <body>? Put the background code right after <body>

    But I viewed your page source file... as in, on your webpage HTML, you do have a body. Edit that page and you'll see.

    I have body, not <body>.

    Where do I place it?
    HTML Code:
    body {
    color:#000000;
    font-family:verdana, sans-serif;
    font-size:10pt;
    background:#FFFFFF;
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
    }

    No... here, go to your page, and right click and choose "view page source" you should then see your HTML, and go down after the part you posted, and you should see <body>

    The only other thing I can suggest at the moment is getting rid of the CSS stuff. That might be the problem...

    That's just the beginning, not a complete page.

    It occurs to me that maybe we should go back to discussing layouts.

    Faltzer's is awesome. ^__^

    XD375, try it with just the background.bmp rather than the whole URL.
