How can I get information about iPage web hosting?

Click Here To View All Answers...

My first question is How can I get information about iPage web hosting? Many thanks for any answer or 2. 2nd question I got is.. Greetings!.

I have a menu in a few tables, heavily modified with style sheets and with a onMouseover and onMouseout on them which highlights a menu selection..

However, you still need to aim at the text in order to be able to click and follow a link (since I don't have a onMouseclick in the data and the link is a simple href on the text)..

The reason for me doing this is that I need to minimize the places people have to make modifications to when they want to add anything (people without any knowledge of html are going to mess with the page)..

My question now is this:.

Is there some way to enable clicking on the table data to follow the link in it?.

(Note that I do not want to have multiple hrefs or classes which places links away from the text or anything which might complicate any modifications to the page...).

Sincerely, Robert..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

So, are you saying that in a sense you want to apply the clickable link to the whole table cell rather than just the text so that it affects whatever content is put into the cell?.

I'm afraid that this sounds as though it is beyond the boundaries of my knowledge. I'm not saying it's impossible though..

If I've still got the wrong end of the stick, let me know and I'll have another go at solving it!.

Sorry I can't be of more help...

Thank you for a short and clear description for what I was trying to say (English is not my naitive language)..

That is exactly what I am trying to do!.

I know how to do it with classes and onMouseclicks in javascript, but that would be too complicated for other people than me to edit (since the html would get cluttered)..

Anyway, thanks for taking time to try to solve this. Maybe someone else has noticed this thread now and can help?.

You're welcome!.

Although I honestly don't think it can be done without using JavaScript or something else. I'm almost certain you can't do it with just HTML..

But good luck anyway!.

Wouldn't this work with a slice?.

Can't you just put it into Dreamweaver.

And slice that area?..

Comment #5

Slicing is fine when you are working with images but as far as I know you can't slice HTML pages and tables...

Comment #6

I've seen this question before and don't remember if it ever got solved. the only thing I can suggest is using a small gif that fills the cell and just make it a link...

Comment #7

But I don't think they want images in the cell. I think they want others to be able to enter text and have the link applied to whatever they enter...

Comment #8

I totally misunderstood that one. I thought he had a table cell with a text link and wanted the whole cell that link. if they have to type it in then it is not a text link, it would be a textbox link. so do they type it in or is it already a text link..

I thought he said a menu, my bad..

Try this (but not in Netscape!):.

<tr><td onMouseover="'#ffffdf'"onMouseout="'#d5d9df'".


<a href="handbooks/sdp/" target="main">SDP</a>.


Function redirect(obj) {.

Var kids = obj.children;.

If (!kids || !kids.length) return false;.

For (var i=0; i< kids.length; i++) {.

If (kids[i].tagName == "A") kids[i].click();.


Return true;.


Comment #10

Strange... this works, but not in netscape. Also the mouse doesn;t change onMouseover (the color does).....and the link is valid..

<table border=1>.


<td>not me!</td><A href=""><td onMouseover="'#cc0000'"onMouseout="'#d5d9df'".

>ME ME ME!!!</td></a><td>not me either</td>.


Comment #11


Thank you for your replies!.

I'm not sure you are supposed to be able to put a <a> tag around a <td> ...have to look into that..

But that script sure looks nice!.

But I probably will use match or search instead of for-loops....

Thanks again!.
