Aubert (http://www.kdaubert.com) on her bio and news pages there is just arrows and not the white side box and i also would like to have the color the same as my page background(transparent) someone gave me this code to do it but it doesnt have the arrows it has that box, he said i should use iframes and i don't even know what that is help someone please. i would also only like to have the side scroll bar.

{
height: 200px;
width: 400px;
overflow-y: scroll;
overflow-x: auto;
font-family: tahoma;
font-size: 10pt;

Hi!
Here are a couple of links, one to a tutorial by Keith, the other to a thread, both about i-frames. Please take a look at them - they'll give you a good understanding of i-frames and how they can be used. Your best way to learn is to play about and try different things out. If you get stuck - come right back and someone will be glad to help you.

In the thread you will find the code for making them transparent too.

The script she is useing is macromedia- flash with an External file. you could do it with a iframe but the scroller will be much the same as to the right of your screen. but you could change the colour.

Hi aprilpgb21
You don't need a code, just make a page with your text on it. then open page properties edit background colour to match yours. then click the scrollbar button and edit the scrollbar to your liking. then change page size this might take a couple of trys. then save and publish.
now open the page you wish the iframe to appear , click the iframe button on tool bar. resize then double click it, in the url put the full address of the page you just published , unclick the border bit, define if you want scrollbar if needed. then click ok . now click preview check to see everything is ok. if not go bagk and change things untill right.

Hi,
Please have a look at my page called SA Candle Makers (from the menu).
At the bottom of the page is a scrolling news box, and a link to where I got it from.

If you decide to use this method, and need help, just mail me.
