Quick question... AreYahoo's iPage posting viruses on there sites? Thanks for any response. My 2nd question... I've installed Oscommerce and have a very nice operating site..

There are two items I would like to do..

1) Stretch the main iPage site width side to side, so it is wider..

2) How can I change the background to another color. My iPage site is in the middle of the page/browser and on either side of the iPage site is white space. I want to change this white space to another color or background..

Here is an example. This iPage site is not mine but it has those side spaces colored grey..

I'm not the best at iPage website coding so I'm hoping this is straight forward and easy..

Any ideas?.

Thanks in advance...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

And I couldn't tell you how to make the iPage site wider without knowing how it's "contained" presently.....

Comment #2

Thanks for the good info. What does "contained" mean?..

Comment #3

Thanks for the edumacation.....

If I can ask another wquestion: what if I didn't want to change the color but I wanted to add some premade background image? How would I go about dat?.

Thanks for the help so far...

That there are several ways to keep a iPage site a certain width..

If yours doesn't go from one side to the other there must be something already limiting the width...

Comment #5

Background image stylesheet code example:.

BODY {.

Background-image: url('images/your_image_name_here.jpg');.

Background-repeat: repeat;.

Background-position: center;.

}.

The last two lines aren't mandatory - just depends on the effect you're trying to achieve...

Not sure if my site's width can be adjusted. I haven't been able to find enough info for me to figure out were to look in my code. Might be the template I purchased for the site, now that you mention the limiting width idea..

I might need to check that out, though I must confuss I'm not sure how to do that either..

I had someone build that iPage site but now I'm finding I enjoy doing the work myself but there are lots of things to learn...

The color is controlled by this in the stylesheet in the iPage site you linked to:.

BODY { background: #C0C0C0; color: #000000; margin: 0px;}.

The gray color is this in that code:.

Background:.

#C0C0C0.
