Oxygen theme and html

  1. Ii am trying to display a table with border, but i cannot see it until i click or 'reader' button (that's written where i have my url).

    I am using
    <table width="95%" border="10" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="1" bgcolor="#fff9ef">
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td>

    </td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>

    How can i see the borser of my table?

    The blog I need help with is ricettedelcuore.com.

  2. a) You're using outdated coding, so some of what you've written has no effect.
    b) Tables are for arranging content in rows and columns. If what you pasted above is the whole table, there's absolutely no point using a single-cell table. What exactly are you trying to do? (Link to the post or page in question please.)

  3. Hi,
    I do not need a table!

    Give a look at http://ricettedelcuore.com/2013/03/01/polpo-con-patate/

    I would like to add a border to it.
    Final result should be, some text with yellow or light blue background, and a border to it. That's it!

    Thank you...

  4. For starters see this post of mine:
    http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/10/14/borders-pt-1/
    But
    a) Your question isn't clear to me: do you mean a bordered bg to the whole content of the post, or to each image, or to some text you haven't added yet, or what? Please be very precise when asking such questions!
    b) Is this going to be an isolated case, or would you like to use the same styling in several posts? I'm asking because if you're going to need the same styling again and again, it's better to create it in the CSS editor instead of the post editor.

  5. Hi Justpi,
    I read your post, taht is very usefull.

    I would like to use the same format on most all of my posts.

    And i would like a format of this type:

    CONTENT HERE
    <div style="border:1px double #eaf3f9;padding:1.2em; background-color:#eaf3f9;">
    CONTENT HERE
    </div>

    I did it on
    http://ricettedelcuore.com/2013/03/01/polpo-con-patate/

    Please tell me if i have to modify css.
    I do not think so, because i want the border only on a part of the post...

    Best!

  6. Yes, if you want the exact same styling for most posts you'll do most of it in the CSS editor: it's better and easier.
    You'll give this type of div a name, for instance "telaio".
    You'll transfer all the styling to the CSS editor:

    #telaio {
        border: 3px double #444444;
        padding: 1.2em;
        background-color: #eaf3f9;
    }

    Then in the post editor you'll only write this:

    <div id="telaio">
    CONTENT HERE
    </div>

    Note: I changed the border color to the dark grey of the theme (in your example you used the same color for border and bg, so the border won't show). Also, double border means two lines with white space between them, so it cannot be 1px: I changed it to 3px. If you prefer a single thin line, use this in the above code:
    border: 1px solid #444444;

  7. This is GREAT!
    In this way is also easier to change the format for all my posts.

    Thank you.

    Thank you.

  9. I did it!
    I am very happy with it.
    Also the 3px double is nicer then 1px double.

    Thank you again!

  10. You're welcome!
