    Post Adding HTML to my website

    Good morning Forum

    Happ New Year to all!

    Today's problem is the following:
    I have a website needing lots of html code boxes as I am adding a shopping cart function, and so need an HTML box next to each item available for purchase. The HTML code for the button is readymade, and I just need to paste it to my page, but when I add it as per the video tutorial, all I see is still the HTML box of the tutorial, and the purchase button with price does not appear. How do I fix this?

    Thanks!

    is this when you are looking at it published? cos it wont show up unless on the net, have you opend the html box and placed the said button code inside? then it should be ok

    just clicked on your link and you need to name the page at the moment its clled index, right click page then you can name it this isnt the same as saving it in the nmae index you understand

    When you put the html box on your page - you then right click on it. Now select properties - and this is where you insert your code.

    Question Re: Adding HTML to my website

    I am doing the same thing using HTML boxes as my BUY NOW boxes. they publish and work fine but I need a tip for positioning them. They get quite small and it is hard to line them up with the other type etc. Anyone know how to do this? The page I am working on is http://humnew.com/handlevases.html
    See that floating BuyNOW button? That's an HTML box I made so tiny that I can't grab it to delete. I can find the code in the page HTML but can't see how to delete it there. The code does not appear to editable in that window. How do I edit?

    PS double clicking on an HTML box to insert code is quicker than right click/properties

    First, you should make all the html boxes the size of what they will be portraying on the page. Even if that box is only one pixel, you should be able to right click on it and get the options to work with it - it'll just be difficult because you need to know exactly where you put it :) Your other option is to click on everything else on the page and copy it over to another page and delete the original page with that errant little box.

    Looking at the page, I suggest you make those buy buttons bigger - I'm not sure if anyone will see them as they are now.

    I've been trying to make them all the same size but they still don't line up nice and tidy when they are published. I think I will have to move everything to a new page to get rid of that errant button. I can't grab it no matter how hard I try- unless there is a place to enlarge the page... is there such an option?
    I'll do some testing with the little buttons- it's an art gallery thang.(:

    It is quite easy. Add a html box in your page. Double click it and paste in the window that opens, the code for the PayPal buy now button. Click ok and you are done. YOu can make the html box the same size as the button image that you have selected when creating it, as this will help you have the same (visually) layout as if the real button image was in the page.

    You are probably missing part of the code, for example the starting tags. If so, then yes, it will appear as code and it will not give the effect you want. If you want, post here the code you are trying to place in the page, so we can have a look.

    The size you draw your html box to insert code into does not dictate how images present: the code itself determines the images' formatting.

    To change the size of your image created by the code you need to adjust the code itself. Your html box is merely a visual aid for your to use when developing a page.
    The common reference point for placement on your page is always the upper left corner of your HTML box (to which the code also reforms).
    To demonstrate this, you can create a 120wx60t box and place code in it for a 468x60 banner......guess what happens? And, conversely, you can "edit the code" by changing the 468 into 120, and it will present perfectly, although the image will be distorted having been created for the former formatting.....

    Vasili, the meaning of Beth's post, as well that of mine (post #9 where i also suggest making the html box same size as the visual effect that will be generated by the code) is that by having it the same size, the viewer can better be helped with the layout of the page.

    And, also, it is not exact that the html can be any size, at least not in all cases. If, the code that is pasted generates a dynamically resizable table, or it contains a paragraph of text, then the dimensions of the html DO count, as everything will be contained in the html boxes dimensions.

    Your observation is only true for unique objects (like images) where indeed the dimensions of the box are not important. However, it always helps having the box appear as it will when the code goes live .

    Not at all Vasili,

    through discussion between us, olders, useful information is coming up for new membres.

    And, not everybody knows, as you have nicely put it, that they can change themselves the dimensions of a banner by changing the code.

    If you want to add a photo gallery, you don't have to add a domain. You just have to add links to your gallery page in your current pages. Then create the gallery pages and publish them. Your gallery pages should be created and added just like all your other pages were. I hope this helps. Good luck.

    Wow those are awesome sites....what I am trying to do is have a page where viewers can click on from my main page just like those links you posted. Or viewers can type the url to go directly to those pages....I would like to be able to create a photo page, along with one or two other pages.

    In BlueVoda there is a gallery and a lightbox option. What you would do is create your main page, then create a link on that page that points to your pictures or gallery page.

    You will then create a gallery or picture page to look however you want. Then you would either insert a gallery or lightbox gallery. These are both easy to use and set up. In Blue Voda, you click on

    Insert > Extra > Lightbox

    an example is HERE

    or

    Insert > Extra > Photo Gallery

    an example is HERE

    There is also an icon that you can find on the bottom left side of you BlueVoda program for each of these options

    Once you click on either Gallery or Lightbox, you will go into the properties of the box that now appears. Here you will add pictures by browsing through your files and selecting the pictures you want to add. In this properties window, you can edit the spacing, the titles, the font and color of titles as well. Once you choose the pictures you want, you can drag the box to the desired location on your page. You can also move the borders as big as you want. You can also preview this page by hitting the preview icon at the top of the BV program. In the preview that your browswer opens up, you can click on the pictures to see how they will appear to your viewers.

    I hope this helps.

    Hello

    hmmm now I know why I am a private
    Anyway NO I am still with same problem...maybe I didn't address my question right.

    I know how to post photos on webpage, aslo I learn about the lightbox...thanks.

    I notice some of the link you refer me had what I want...but I guess they have set different that what I want. they have I think some one mention a menu bar.....I don't know but once you click on any of them it will take you to another page...in that page they have for instance a contact info page another take you to a billing page...

    that is what I would like to do....so that once I creat the page I could name it photo gallery or contact us or what ever. I hope I make sense
