HTML on the side?


Hello. I've recently attempted to add an IRC channel type thing called "Cbox" and I added it to my site but it doesn't look right in the Header or Footer spots. Is there a way that I can create a side bar and add the HTML for this item there? Thank you for all of your time and efforts. (the forum that I'm talking about is at ]Apocolyptica)

Hi Zearray emoticon

I just put some code into place at your board.

In your HTML Header, put your Cbox code where I've indicated there. If you don't want a heading at the top of your sidebar, take out <h2>Heading</h2>. Otherwise, change "Heading" to whatever you want your heading to say.

In your CSS, you'll find this new code that I added at the end:

#sidebar { display: none; }
/*


#sidebar {
  font-family: verdana, arial, sans-serif;
  width: 180px;
  float: left;
  margin-right: 5px;
}

#container {
    margin-left: 190px;
}

.box {
  border: 2px solid #000000;
}

.box h2 {
  margin: 0;
  border-bottom: 1px solid #000000;
  font-size: 100%;
  line-height: 26px;
  vertical-align: middle;
  text-align: center;
  background:url([sign in to see URL]) center repeat-x;
}
*/


Remove the parts in red, and tweak what's left over as you see fit. If you're unfamiliar with CSS, you may want to try this out on a test board. If you need help with that, you can ask here and we'll be happy to get into more detail. emoticon

Thanks very much for the help. It went in with out a hitch and it looks like it's running smoothly now. If anything happens with it then I'll be sure to ask about it. Thanks again and take care!

You're welcome, Zearray. emoticon

You should tweak the CSS to make the sidebar wide enough to accommodate your Cbox. Since it's 200px wide, you can change the width (in your CSS) for #sidebar from 180px to 200px, and the margin-left for #container from 190px to 205px or 210px. That should make it fit nicely. emoticon
