Hi all,

i have tried to find the answers to my questions here but didn't really get them so i hope some of you can help me! so sorry if i can't provide the exact software term and i will try to describe as clearly as possible! i have an account with VodaHost & i'm using the soholaunch to build my website,

1. how do i make my webpage in a way that when i minimize the screen, it will adjust to the right size & all information will fit into the screen size? is it have to set a border? if yes, how to do it on Soholaunch?

2. can i download the BV templates & upload to Soholaunch?

Your advice is appreciated!

Sharon,

Im not sure what you mean make soho minimize .. i think that would be your screen resolution, but im not sure exactly what you mean. It would also depend somewhat on if the template was fluid or static. A border would definitely make it static, and you want it fluid.. to move with the screen.. or i think thats what you mean.

To do that youd have to edit the template. 100's of posts here and on soholaunch.com forum on editing the templates.

No.. you cant download the BV templates and upload them to soho, They dont work together and are not compatible. See again threads on editing the templates.

Hi,

May be you try as follows:

You set your PC's display setting 800x600 by going in control panel or
try right bottom corner of screen where zoom level can be change according to your need.
Some time I got the same problem but if we re-log or re start PC and problem goes off.

Thanks Karen & chitragurung for your replies!

perhaps you see my website at www.agapebeadsncrafts.com (http://www.agapebeadsncrafts.com) the webpage is stretched from one side of the screen to the other, so i need to maximize the screen to view the complete info. How can i make it not so 'stretched'?

so sorry i really have no idea what are the terms to use!

Hi, you control the size of your page via the page properties area,
(View/Page properties) & ajust the width & hight, then tick the center in browser box.

thanks Chris,

is it from soholaunch page properties? if yes, i don't see 'view', only 'page properties' when i click on the edit webpage but there is no width or height for me to adjust. pls advise me again!

Arh! Should of looked at what forum I was in. lol.
I maybe wrong, but hasn’t soho got fluid pages that auto adjust to the width of any browser?? It maybe a case of a template like the one below. But let others confer this.

Sharon,

I dont recall trying to use that template, but mine is edited and as I recall i made the header float.

Im not sure which site you are speaking of.. but one site has a slideshow, and thats from dynamic drive, other sites i use a combo of tables etc for the home page. On the product pages thats drag and drop soho, and I use alot of customized files to upload for headers etc, so i can more or less get in my search engine stuff how i want to and html etc.

I have other sites not soho, so.. you need to specify which ones.

Chris.. most the templates are more or less fluid in soho, or aligned left instead of center. It just depends on the template set and if its a customized one or not.

Ah! Thankyou. Must admit there are some nice templates about for soho. Think i might pinch some & adapt for BV use.

Hello,

May be you try Soho users manual http://www.vodahost.com/soholaunch_users_manual.htm

in above, go to open and edit page and go to formatting issues.

In this page you can find, where or how to put texts and images and how it looks after that in Soho templates.

May be it will help to you.

hi all,

thanks for all your advice. guess is the template so i have to think of a way to make the text in the central by adding something on the right side.

Karen,

i like the way you put the product's pictures side by side so neatly, example this webpage of your website http://www.charmingnoveltees.com/DogTags.php

think you didn't use the soho drag & drop right?

Sharon,

No i floated those pics in html, and thats not a soho site. Thats a store front that uses dreamweaver and its fully customizable but.. you have to know some html and coding to walk around in it to do all the things you want to. Its Ecommerce Templates. You could do this in soho tho with a custom code/include by doing your page in html or dreamweaver etc, then drag and drop the custom code to the page and upload your file.

Wait.. thats a product page so that was done with customizing the includes and displays in the cart itself. You cant do exactly that in soho without some heavy customizing but you can sorta line up your products that way.

Thanks Karen, i know there is a product page, do i have to restart the 'quickstart wizard' & redo the website? i think is only in the 'quickstart wizard' then there is a product page. or can you teach me how to do custom code in html (i don't need any software right?) coz i don't have the dreamweaver software. if is too complicated then i will have to restart the wizard & redo the website.

No.. you make your categories and products in the CART area, where it also lists your product, and then you create pages and drag and drop in the main area. You can do custom coding in notepad and save it as html, and upload it.. see grannyscountrynook.com thats soho.

hi all, i need help again!

1. how do i delete the gap in between lines? whenever i press 'enter', i will have a space in between lines, eg:

Soholaunch

General Issues

how do i make the above words like this:

Soholaunch
General Issues


2. when i upload the pictures into the File Manager Images, shall i delete the pictures files after inserting in my webpage? or i just leave them inside the File Manager?


Hope to have some advice soon! :)

Im assuming that 1.) is when you are in the text editor and any time you hit the enter key you get a new paragraph. To change this either use a bulleted list or, edit the html Where you see a break coded by <p> delete that and enter <br> That makes a line break instead of a paragraph. You will also have to delete the ending </p> immediately preceding the new <p>

2.)You must leave your pictures in the file manager otherwise you will get red x's, as they are pointing to where you uploaded in the file manager and NOT an actual picture.
