Hi there,

I'm just in the process of building my site, but I'm a complete beginner and have a few questions:

1 How can I get an image to appear above the Section headers on the left had side of the page (ie a logo of my name)?

2 When I click, "View your site" I just get my host's holding page and I know that is because I haven't gone "live", but when I'm ready to go live how do I go about it?

3 How do you get the Section headers to cascade down a column of sub headings (ie image titles) when you click on them - is that a plug-in?

Grateful for help!

Maria

1. Place an image into the Exhibits > Settings > Prenav space.
2. Delete the index.html file from the root of your site.
3. Search forum for 'expand' and you'll find it.

Ok, here's a follow up question: How do I place an image into the Exhibits>Settings>Prenav space? Html code I presume, but how do I get it to understand which image to place? I tried looking through the forums, but everyone seems to already know how to do it... Help please I'm going mad!

< a href="where your link go"> < img src="where your image is (you may upload it via your ftp)" width='of your logo' height='of your logo' />

Thank you for that code! But, just to seem really stupid, "where your link go" and "where your image is" - exactly what do you put in there? The name of the folder in which it is on the server? Do you put in the file name too? Oh I'm so confused, as you can see I'm a complete novice when it comes to html!

Yes. But, you should really read the html/css basics thread at the top of the forum.

Once you figure this out you are going to realize how easy these things are...this is about one of the easiest questions there is to solve. Go for it.

So, what's wrong with this code? I really can't work it out! My image doesn't show, it just shows the code like it is below. I know it's probably simple if you're used to html, but I'm really struggling...

< img src=/website/img/"Mariaspann.jpg" width="80" height="20" />

you've put the quote mark in the wrong place, it should be:
< img src="/website/img/Mariaspann.jpg" width="80" height="20" />

Thats what i think anyway.

also i think you need to put in the px with the dimensions. Like 80px and 20px. or whatever type of measurement youre using. Your web browser needs to understand how big each of the unit is!

Hi,

Thanks for that... but it doesn't seem to work... I moved the image to the folder on the server where all the other images I've uploaded are and put in the following:

< img src="/website/files/gimgs/Mariaspann.jpg" width="80px" height="20px" />

But it still doesn't work, it just shows the text...

  1. < img src=/website/files/gimgs/"Mariaspann.jpg" width="80px" height="20px" />

That is what you have. The problem is that 'webiste' is the folder that holds your site so you don't need it. And, I'm not sure why you have broken up the code such that it breaks things down. And, your width and height are wrong...

It should be like this...note how close you really were...

  1. <img src="/files/gimgs/Mariaspann.jpg" width="80" height="20" />

If your image is in the that folder then this should work.

Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!! Now I just need to fiddle with the size. Thank you so much!

Size of the image?

It's best to create the size at exactly what you want and use those dimensions. If you adjust things arbitrarily it might not look right.
