Location : At the temple, there is a poem called "Loss." It has three words, but the poet has scratched them out. You can not read Loss, only feel it.

Yeah! Do you use firefox? I just downloaded it today, and I noticed that the links work fine on Internet Explorer, but you're right, when I use firefox, the cursor disappears. I'll definately work on changing the color or something.

Thanks! =]

You coded THAT. That is really incredible! I've only been getting into coding templates recently but I still haven't quite figured it out yet.

Yep, I use Firefox, so its a Firefox glitch.. Oo yup. Changing the color works good.

ohohohohoh

that makes sense now!

yeah, that is a good idea...

maybe 500 posts instead of 200.

that way it gives people more of an incentive.

I agree with Abby, you need to have atleast 500+ posts, I would say 1,000 but Mel doesn't have that many yet.

hey everyone. I've added the Rebel Angel and Sweet Far Thing pages. I've also added links to Libba's LJ and official site.

If you guys could give me ideas on contests for the site, or maybe give me your favorite book quotes, I'd appreciate it =]

@mel: I've learnt how to code this template that was exactly what the tutorial taught to do but I've also been flipping through some other tutorials which teach you how to code a template but some bits are a bit confusing.
At first I was going for this but now it looks a little difficult since the navi is connected with the header.

@GTB:+1000 posts?! *squints at 62 posts and tries to picture another digit*

Ahh, that's cool. Y'know what's good practice? Maybe layouts for journals and stuff. I used to have a site on xanga with a friend making layouts for xanga.

I think I'm going to make a photo tutorial for everyone qualified to update the site. I think about 400 or 500 posts. I'd feel kind of hypocritical when I don't even have 1000. =P Or maybe we should just say like, if you're an active member for ____ amount of time. idk =\

Mel's Tutorial to Website Updating =]

https://2img.net/h/i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm118/melanie54lynn/filemanager.jpg

This is the screen you'll see when you log in to freewebs.com Click the little paper/pencil in order to edit that page.


https://2img.net/h/i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm118/melanie54lynn/codekey.jpg

Here's what you'll see (after scrolling down a bit) when you go to edit the index(home) page.

First off, let's break down the colors:

Yellow.. This is your font size. Be sure to close any font size changes with < / font > (no spaces) or it'll mess up the whole thing. Probably won't be editing this much, but just an fyi..

Orange.. This is the title for the page. You shouldn't be editing this, but I thought I'd let you know

Green.. Date of the entry, pretty self explanatory =P

Blue.. This is where the entry goes. The < br > (no spaces) is very important. When typing codes like this, enters don't count. You can press the enter button until your fingers turn blue and it won't show up. < br > is the same as an enter. Here's an example:

Hi< br >My name's Melanie would be

Hi
My name's Melanie

Hi< br >< br > My name's Melanie would be

Hi

My name's Melanie

You can also add it to the end of a statement as I did in the code, like so < br >

Pink.. This is the code for the comment link. I usually just put it on the latest entry, so if you're adding a new entry, just cut the code out of the previous one and past it under your new entry.

Brown.. This is meant to include the img src = tag too. This is the image for the divider that goes between entries. Finish it with a < br > < br > So there's some space between entries.

So that's basically it. Also, when you post any sort of entry or anything, it's in there TWICE, so you'll need to scroll near the bottom of the code and paste it again. =]

I hope that made sense<3
