My Thread Keeps Getting Closed Here?

  1. Hopefully there's someone on here or wordpress.org that would know how to edit that code so it shows up correctly because I don't exactly have enough HTML expertise.

  2. Here's the HTML again, it's easier to read here:

    http://wordpress.pastebin.com/yNGxYhvY

  3. There will be lots of people who can do it, but they will expect you to know how to edit your own code.

  4. Where did you get the code from in the first place? You should probably go back to them and ask for assistance.

  5. This sounds amateurish, but I used "Save for web and devices" in Photoshop and it generated a HTML file that works fine on its own. It took quite a while to split up the image and add text properly the way I wanted it. I figured that would be the easiest way to do it right since I had to split up multiple elements and add specifically-placed and formatted text (that wouldn't be included in an image), though it was time-consuming.

  6. It took a long time to do it right that way, but I'd really like to learn another way so I can do this painlessly in the future.

  7. I've seen stuff like this come out of Dreamweaver. I so wish Adobe had not bought Macromedia. DW went severely downhill after that.

    [opinion] Adobe has b0rked to death so many good programs [/opinion]

  8. I tried fixing it in Dreamweaver, too. haha How would you recommend I do it correctly (that's intuitive and not unnecessarily difficult)?

  9. Dreamweaver tries to make complete stand-alone web pages. It really isn't good for making the code to go into a text widget.

    You can use DW, but what you have to do is build the entire table in the "body" of the page and then copy out ONLY what is between the starting and ending body tags, nothing else.

    Also, set dreamweaver so that it is the width of the text widget, or set the width of the table so that it is the width of the text widget. If you don't, you can end up with a table that overflows the sidebar and will be useless.

  10. You know, I just thought of something. If you are on Windows, download and use Windows Live Writer to build your table. It has a pretty robust table function and I've done some amazing things with it.

  11. I'm on a Mac, but I do have a dual-boot of Mac OS and Windows 7 set up. I'm still a little confused. I think I'm gonna need somebody to tell me what to remove from the original code so I fully understand what the only things that are supposed to be there are.

  12. Just give up on what you're using.

    If you want to generate content for a text widget, just write it up as a draft Post. You can use the centering icons, add pictures, whatever you like. Keep in mind it's going to be narrower. Once it looks more or less the way you want, click to the HTML tab, copy all the code, and put that in a text widget. You can save the draft post for future edits if you want or delete it.

    What you're doing now doesn't work; in the very most profound sense it is broken. Stop using it and never use it again.

  13. Okay, I'm short on time, so I just put the text as part of an image, so I only have four slices I had to put together. I'd really like to remove the black border around the shape (and keep the table bgcolor). Could somebody check my HTML for me and tell me how to keep the black table bgcolor but not have it extend outside of the shape? THis HTML is a lot shorter:

    <table bgcolor="#000000">
    <tbody></tbody>
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td colspan="2"><img src="http://dextercorner.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/DexterCornerFollowFull2_01.gif" alt="" width="263" height="34" /></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><img src="http://dextercorner.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/DexterCornerFollowFull2_02.gif" alt="" width="128" height="42" /></td>
    <td rowspan="2"><img src="http://dextercorner.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/DexterCornerFollowFull2_03.gif" alt="" width="135" height="97" /></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><img src="http://dextercorner.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/DexterCornerFollowFull2_04.gif" alt="" width="128" height="55" /></td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>
  14. By the way, this forum is much more responsive than WordPress.org, where I've gotten 0 replies.

  15. I had at one point thought about moving over to the .ORG forums and answering the simple to moderate questions that seem to be "beneath" the volunteers and moderators over there, but thankfully I recovered before I did.

  16. The code is almost there. There's just a small black border at the bottom that shouldn't be there on my WordPress site. I'd really appreciate any help because I've spent a lot of time trying to get this done and I have to have my site up in a week.

  17. I just popped your code into a test post, and I see no black border on the bottom. I mess with tables so seldom that quite truthfully I'm not the best one to help, Panos is. That said, give this code a try.

    <table style="background-color:#000000;border:none;" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="263px">
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td style="border:none;" colspan="2"><img src="http://dextercorner.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/DexterCornerFollowFull2_01.gif" alt="" width="263" height="34" /></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td style="border:none;"><img src="http://dextercorner.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/DexterCornerFollowFull2_02.gif" alt="" width="128" height="42" /></td>
    <td style="border:none;" rowspan="2"><img src="http://dextercorner.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/DexterCornerFollowFull2_03.gif" alt="" width="135" height="97" /></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td style="border:none;"><img src="http://dextercorner.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/DexterCornerFollowFull2_04.gif" alt="" width="128" height="55" /></td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>
