I would like to have a box inserted on my webpage that is seperate from the main page, but allows u to add text to it, so that you can alos scroll up and down the box. But i would also like to be able to see any background pictures that are on the main page in theis box too.

Is this possible?

Use the inline frame component from BlueVoda 7.5

I tried that but it doesnt seem to allow me to have that inline box as see through. Wat i want is a background pic with that scroll box on it, but i want that scroll box to be see through, so u can see the background picture through it, so the writing goes over the top of the picture, and allows u to see the picutre, if that makes sense.

Yes, you can do this with BlueVoda:

Part A:
1. Create a page with the text your want to scroll.
2. Open Page HTML and enter this code in the Between Head Tag field:
<style type="text/css">
body {background-color: transparent}
</style>
3. Publish the page to your web account and remember it's name.

Part B:
4. Create a page with an IFRAME (Inline Frame)
5. Set the URL to the page above.
6. Open the Object HTML for this inline frame.
7. Enter this code in the Inside Tag field:
allowtransparency="true" background-color="transparent"

8. Preview or publish the page to see the effect.

I have tried wat u suggested Pablo, but it isnt wat i want. Wat u have said for me to do, actually gives me my whole web page in the scrolling box, but all i want is the text from the webpage i have created in the scroll box, with this scroll box on top of my origianl page but i want the scroll box to be transparent over the main page so the background pic is see able.

Here is an example: http://www.the-underground.moonfruit.com/ once u enter the site goto News page and u will then see wat i am after.

This requires the use of flash.

You can insert Flash into BlueVoda very easily, but you can not use BlueVoda
design a flash movie.

I have a scrolling box on my home page, where I want to put news. What kind of file does 'news' have to be? Should I make a new web page and link that? Thanks. x

Hi,

Can you be a little more specific. Are you wanting the news to update or are you going to update it? If you are talking about have third party news on your website that updates from the third party, then you need to sign up with a service that provides free newsfeed content. Not sure if it will work with the marquee tool though, normally these feeds are static. The third party will provide the html code, you just copy and paste into the html box (left hand menu in bluevoda very top)

Sorry, I'll try to be more clear. I have a home page with a scrolling box. In this box, I want to put my news, things that I have written about. I tried inserting a word document of this news and it didn't work. So, I was wondering what kind of document can be inserted? Thanks. x

Insert the contents of the word doc to a html page and insert the hyperlink of the
html page in the scrolling box. This will display your data in publish mode.
