    Talking What is CSS?

    • CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets
    • Styles define how to display HTML elements
    • Styles are normally stored in Style Sheets
    • Styles were added to HTML 4.0 to solve a problem
    • External Style Sheets can save you a lot of work
    • External Style Sheets are stored in CSS files
    • Multiple style definitions will cascade into one

    Hi Bitz.

    CSS is a way of programming additional styles into your web pages. It was basically invented to overcome limitations with HTML programming and it is constantly being developed to incorporate additional elements.

    The style sheet is the page where all your new programming will go, it will then be called by a line on each of your HTML pages which basically says "look at my style sheet and use the styling options that i have listed there".

    Styles can also be added directly to each web page or added directly to individual elements on the web page. This is where the word cascading comes in....

    If you apply a style to say... a hyperlink on your page... then that instruction will be followed, if there are no styles applied then the styles in the head of each page will be followed. If there are no styling instructions listed there then it will cascade up further to the style sheet.

    Using style sheets allows for altering various parts of your design very easily. If your menu (for example) colours are defined in a style sheet and you want to change the colour then it need only be changed on the one single style sheet and all the pages on your site will follow that instruction instead of having to alter the colour instructions on each page individually.

    Cool Re: What is CSS?

    as said above, css stands for cascading stylesheets

    there are 3 types of stylesheets, namely:
    1) inline css
    2) embedded css
    3) external css

    1) inline css - in is that type of css which is in the html codes of an html document, like between different html tags.

    2) embedded css - these css are embedded within an html document before the body tags. the css required for a particular html document are put before the <body> tags.

    3) external css - this is the most popularly used type of css used now a days. all the necessary css are coded in an external file with a ".css" extension. then as an when required it is called in any required html file.

    external css are overridden by an embedded css and and embedded css is overridden by an inline css this is why they are called as css or cascading style sheets.

    Can somebody please help me???????

    I need to create Go Menu that can be crawled the the search engines.....How can I do this? I have seen a couple of sites that can do this and I read somewhere that if you use CSS you can have a dropdown menu that can be crawled by the search engines.

    I have done some testing with a search engine sim and I can see that some body knows how to do it but the BV dropdown isn't crawlable.

    I really need to be able to do this for sales reasons on some new sites I am putting together.

    Thanks

    moto,

    solution would be to use html footer links duplicating your menu for the se to crawl.

    Hi .. if you are using blue voda and like it, stick with it. If you have downloaded any of voda hosts templates, you insert them as an image on your page and you can save as a template to begin each and everyone of your pages with .. Now this does depend on the type of template that you have downloaded though, if it is another type then the instructions and the software required for each template is generally listed.
    There are many tutorials found on this forum for using the blue voda website builder. If you need specific help with an area, be sure to ask.

    It depends on your ability as to whether or not you can do this...Vodahost does not limit you on this aspect...and most make their own BV "templates" instead of using what is offered. The only limits, (besides the "obvious violations" of the TOS of Vodahost), are your own limits. And, if you do enough searching and reading in this community forum...along with outside learning sources, the possibilities are ENDLESS.

    P.S. And what you can't do....Well, there are many people here willing to help you with that...according to your budget.
