I can't seem to find an option under the text property. I have a fixed-size window and I just want the texts to be scrollable. Thank you.

You can place a form text area on the page for this. Worth right clicking on the text area box & selecting html & placing disabled="disabled" in the inside tag area to give it a more professional feel.

Thanks I did it. But the texts color appears to be grey... I selected white from the style tab and had the text box transparent background. What could be wrong?

Hi, i'm not sure if its one of those quirks where you have to select a text colour to make the background transparent. Its working fine at my end.

I've did the text area too but some how it seems that viewers can edit the content. I've tried the disabled="disabled" thing but it disabled the scroll bar.

How do I maintain the scroll bar and disable the edit part?

Thanks in advance...

Hm! Something has changed? But i have tried this newer version in IE, FF & Opera & seems to work fine. Paste input readonly into the text areas html fields under inside tag & try this.

Chris i had a question about this as when i asked awhile back , when we do this on the page , does it need to be php since it has part of a form or can it be left html? :) also i tried the above and now it isnt grayed in my IE!!

Not if its just for text for a visitor to view.
But if the info is being sent via a form to an email address or data base then yes it would be .php
