Question I have... Can you use geocities as a iPage web host? Looking forward for any comment. My 2nd question... I've seen where I can edit the left and right corners. How are people making the whole header look graphical?..

You betcha! although you might wanna make sure and wait for another member here to confirm my answer as I am not quite sure. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the iPage guys because they can give you help better...

You can make the corner images transparent or resize them to 1 pixel and make them transparent..

Then in your stylesheet, do something like this example:.

TD.infoBoxHeading {.

Font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;.

Font-size: 10px;.

Font-weight: bold;.

Background: url("images/box_header.gif");.

Color: #000000;.

}.

FTP the image (box_header.gif in this case) into the images directory..

This also goes for the nav bar and footer bar backgrounds or any area you want an image as a background instead of a color..

The corners are controled by code in the infoboxes. Look at the code for one of boxes in includes/boxes and you will see.

New infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, true, false);.

Or something like it. The true, false applies to the left and right corners, respectively. Change them to false, false or true, true, etc. and you will see how they work. If you want those corners to be different colors, you have to edit the images in images/infoboxes with a image editor and change the color yourself. If you want to change the color/image of the title bar in the box, that is done via stylesheet.css.

I've changed the graphics of the left and right corners, and changed the color between them... I'm aiming for the graphic to extend all the way between the left and right corners. Like the boxes on.

EXAMPLE.

Those are just background images and, as I mentioned, they are controlled in stylesheet.css. Go there and add a background mage to the infoboxHeading class - you will see how it works..

Comment #6

I guess you'll want to think about replacing the relevant title in the style sheet to include your graphic...
