Trying to get the CSS Page to "continue" when I add lines...

Trying to get the CSS Page to "continue" when I add lines...

Hello,

This should be quick and easy. I made a CSS Sculptor page and when I add text that requires me to add hard returns, it adds a "white bar", instead of continuing the backgrounds I had imported. It is a 2 column, header and footer page. If you need anything else, let me know.

Here is the HomePage for the website. How should I splice it for the CSS extension? D4U_HP.gif

I will also be making this into a template for the site and hope to have one page I can edit to change the logo, navigation, and footer items on all pages of the site.

The subpages will be this exact design except I will take away the log in area and just extend the content area to the left a bit.


Thanks

Can you provide a link where I can see the problem?


How you splice the image will depend on the layout you choose. You will need to experiment with the layout type you are using.

once you have created the CSS Sculptor layout, go to File -> Save As Template to create a Dreamweaver template. You can then create the sub pages based on the template.

Here is a link to a screenshot of the "white bar".

I need to be able to see the actual page in the browser to look into the css and trouble shoot the problem.

Alright, I am going to remake the CSS Sculptor page with what I believe will fix it. I need to use my most recent version anyways. Ill get back to here with updates.

EDIT:

Here is the uploaded page - index_.html

It is very messy for the left log in column and right content area. I had to play with the heights and so far my best bet is to use "Auto". I need it to just seamlessly add as many lines of background as I need to type. I am pretty sure it is just a way I sliced the design, or have the "box" setup in the extension.

I also need to know how I can create a page in which when I edit the header and footer, it changes it for all pages.

Thanks

Create a slice that is the width of the page about 10px tall that shows the left column and the main content area with nothing in it. Make that slice the background image to the #contentWrapper and add "background-repeat: repeat-x".




once the layout is created, go to file -> Save As template to save it as a Dreamweaver template. more information on templates can be found here:

Hello Jason,

That seemed to have worked (through some trial and error on my part) but now I have a... template problem? I guess. Take a look at the live page : index2.html . Now here is a screen shot of that page in my dreamweaver. DW.jpg . I am trying to get the home page and content pages finished before I start on the database items. What is happening here to make it so "ugly"

Dreamweaver is not a web browser, it will sometimes not display the page properly. do you see the same problem in the display of the page in the web browser?
