Re: [therelief] Help Getting Customizations Just Right In reply to
When you view your pages the layout looks like this:

Nav Bar----------------------
Search-----------------Login


but when you look at your code it is actually set out like this:

Login------------Nav Bar-------------Search

You have no formatting or layout to your code. Try creating a table and move your login from before the Nav Bar code to after the Search code.

I apologize, but I'm lost. Where do I put the table? What template? Because I thought I already did that. Plus, when I did it any other way, it messed the nav bar/search/login & register stuff up entirely.

If I put the code here, could tell me what is going wrong?

Re: [therelief] Help Getting Customizations Just Right In reply to
It's basic HTML. You need to create something like this:

Code:
<table><tr><td colspan="2">Nav Bar Code</td>
<td>Search Code</td><td>Login Code</td></tr></table>

This is the code from the header footer wrapper (I don't even remember at this point what template it goes in, aye aye aye)...

So where does that code you provided fit in? And the parts in red--am I supposed to put something in there? If so, where do I find what it is I'm supposed to put in?

Re: [therelief] Help Getting Customizations Just Right In reply to
As I said here: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/...orum.cgi?post=294146

To fix your navigation, try this:

Code:

ul.primarynav, ul.secondarynav {

margin-right: 200px;
}


as for the error message, try this:

Code:

#contentheader .error, #contentheader .message {
margin: none;
text-align: center;
}


You need to move your error message into the table. So change this:

Code:

<em></em>
<div id="contentheader">
<div class="error">You must first login before you can access that.</div>
</div>
<table width="800" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="white">
<tr>
<td width="10" height="65"><img src="/images/spacerwhite.gif" alt="~" width="10" height="10" /></td>
<td>


to this:

Code:

<em></em>
<table width="800" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="white">
<tr>
<td width="10" height="65"><img src="/images/spacerwhite.gif" alt="~" width="10" height="10" /></td>
<td>
<div id="contentheader">
<div class="error">You must first login before you can access that.</div>
</div>


Add the css code to the bottom of your luna.css. Change the html in your User Login template.

Hope this helps,

Re: [jdgamble] Help Getting Customizations Just Right In reply to
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

There isn't user login template, but there are these:

login.html
login_email.html
login_success.html

Are those the ones I should change the html in, and should I change it in all of them?

Re: [therelief] Help Getting Customizations Just Right In reply to
Those can't be it because there's no <div id="contentheader">

Can you tell me which template?

Okay, before I even begin to explain what I mean, add this to the bottom of your luna.css to see if your navigation bar problem is fixed:

ul.primarynav, ul.secondarynav {

Re: [jdgamble] Help Getting Customizations Just Right In reply to
Yes, I already did that and it looks good!

http://www.virtualassistantnetworking.com/directory/

As you can see, it caused the the login/register link to be moved and now it's not where it's supposed to be and there's a bunch of white space I don't want, but I figured that was going to get corrected once I updated the template (whichever one it's supposed to be) with the code you provided.

Ideally, where I want the login/register link to be is in the same line/bar or whatever it's called that the search feature is on, so that the search is on the left and the login/register link is on the right end.

Re: [therelief] Help Getting Customizations Just Right In reply to
Sorry, I didn't see that, will get back to that.

I don't know which template you added your tables to. But edit "login.html". Look for "<%include include_contentheader.html%>". This is where the error message is coming from. This is just loading the "include_contentheader.html" template. Makes sure that <%include include_contentheader.html%> is inside the table that you have added. Specifically the table after this "<em></em>".

Oh, dear. I'm lost because the div code you have in there is throwing me. I don't know where to put that because I can't find it in the login template. I also don't see this em em you refer to.

Move this:

Code:
<div id="header">
<div id="loginbar"><a href="<%config.db_cgi_url%>/user.cgi<%if user.Username%>?logout=1<%endif%>" class="<%if user.Username%>in<%else%>out<%endif%>">
<%if user.Username%>
Logout
<%else%>
Login/Register
<%endif%>
</a></div>
</div>



Right after this:

Code:

</form>

Oops--that didn't work. All it did was move the search bar up, which is how I want it to look, I just don't want all that white space and I want the login/register link to be on the same line.

Here's what the page looks like now:

Re: [therelief] Help Getting Customizations Just Right In reply to
If you want it ON the search bar, you are going to have to get rid of the div code for the login bar, and put the link to login inside the div for the search bar. It will, however, get rid of the login image to the right of the login. Would that be okay? or do you need to find another way?

Re: [jdgamble] Help Getting Customizations Just Right In reply to
Yes, that is okay. I don't care about the image. I just want the login/register link to be on the same row at the search box, with the search box on the left and the login/register on the right.

okay, backup your include_header.html and try this:

Code:

Because its impossible to set the styles correctly with your tables, I just split the login bar into 2 more tables.

Re: [jdgamble] Help Getting Customizations Just Right In reply to
Hmm, that messed up my image links, I guess. Plus, the row where the search bar and the login are is a bit longer than I'd like. I want to stay the same height as it was if at all possible. Is that doable? Should I go ahead and put the coding back the way it was in the meantime?

I guess you can't posts long url's in this form. Use this attatched file. Meanwhile, I'll see about making the row shorter.

Re: [therelief] Help Getting Customizations Just Right In reply to
Can I change the subject now? I only have a few things left to figure out on our directory.

One is that when a user click on a link, there a bit more information I want displayed (right now it only shows the website link/link name and then their description). The info I want displayed is:

1. Website link/link name (that is already there)
2. Owners Name (that's the First_Name and Last_Name fields)
3. Phone Number
4. Email (with active link)
5. Description (which already shows)

Do you know how I can make this info show up?
