    Default Web Page Help Needed

    By learning thru tutorials on the net i designed a web page. The page looks great on my PC but when i load it somewhere else it looks awful.

    This is how it looks elsewhere:

    A sample of how i would like to do something can be seen here:

    I don't think it has anything to do with PI. Your web page links are broken, so it's likely that the broken links are to your local hard drive (C and not to a web server (http:www.) . right mouse click over the broken links and see what it says.

    ok i somehow managed to get a sample web page done, and here it is:
    http://pinkykhan.topcities.com/BNL_01/upi4213.htm

    Now i asked the couple of girls who do these type of pages and post at the forum, they say they just copy and paste. When i do copy paste the background does not come, only the text and cliparts are copied.

    Is there anyway i can copy the background and text / cliparts as well.

    Thanks for all ur help. Sorry to bother you i am very new at this stuff so any help will be appreciated.

    I'm not sure exactly what you are asking.

    Are you asking for help in copying the background from someone else's website? If that is the case you should ask them for permission and perhaps get them to send it to you.

    no i am not wanting to take the background from someone's site.

    What i want to do is like whats done in the 1st post in this link.
    Example 1
    http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=851150

    Example 2
    http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=853386


    Its not just a typed post, its been done as a web design, with a background and text and cliparts on the background.

    I did manage to make something similar for a newletter whose link i also posted above.
    http://pinkykhan.topcities.com/BNL_01/upi4213.htm

    This is not someone elses site, this is a sample i made. It has an animated background with text and cliparts on it. What i would like to do is to post that in a forum.

    When i asked the person who did the 1st post she told me she makes the web page and then just copy / pastes it in the forum, when i copy pasted the 1 i did the text and clipart shows up but the background does not.

    What i would like to do is to put the page i made as a post in the forum, which should show up as a web page (with background / cliparts / text) and not just a normal post.

    Thanks for all ur help. Hope i have not confused u more.

    Like instead of just this typing a reply, how can we post a designed web page as a post or reply.

    The web page in example 1. Looking at the html used you can see that the background to the post is a html setting on a table. The whole post sits as part of a table. the table has an image as the background.

    <TABLE align=center background=http://dl2.glitter-graphics.net/pub/770/770772pnoxg3mkcx.gif border=5>

    Your example sets the background image by setting the html page background to be an image, not the table.

    <BODY TOPMARGIN="0" BACKGROUND="background_12.gif"

    Naturally, this won't work when pasting into a forum.

    I'm not sure that really helps.

    You could just make the changes using notepad. Give it a go.

    i tried changing the code in the notepad, input the same line for the background as in the example, got the same background but still am unable to copy the background. :cry :cry, only things on top of the background get copied.
