    Dreamweaver Help

    Hi,

    I have self taught myself a little web designing and decided to create my own. I have came across a little problem I would like some help on.

    I have created my template from scratch, and used the content box height size of 830 Pixels.

    The problem is, I don't want every page to be the same height, as some pages have to much blank space at the bottom of the page compared to others.

    My aim is, to set each page at an individual height, but this is where I am having the problem, changing my template changes all pages, and I can not seem to edit each page individually.

    If you want to take a look to have a better understanding, please click my website www.ajstudios.tk.

    If you look at the "Catalog" page, that is how I want my other pages to be, the footer just finishing nicely under my page. If you look at the "Home" page, there is too much of a big space between the page and footer.

    Thank you for any help in advance.

    Use relative heights

    it sounds like you are telling your template to be an absolute height, essentially saying no matter what screen or how much content there is it should be the same height! This normally looks good but if you want to change set the height to auto and will become more responsive. A googlw on how to aet template height to auto in dreamweaver should be very easy.

    Thanks for that, I have set my content box as 100%, so it is no longer a set height. It has worked now.

    Another problem I'm having, I have changed the top of my webpage bar from Untitled Document, to my chosen name. It seems to work when I preview it in dreamweaver using Firefox and Safari, but when I upload it to my website and preview it live, it displays as Untitled Document again?

    Is this a free host? Your entire site is captured within a frameset (go to http://www.ajstudios.tk/ and "view source" to see the frameset page) and the title of that frameset page is "Untitled Document". So if you're going to leave the structure that way, it's the title on the frameset page you need to change.

    Hi,

    Glad it helped you. I was just wondering if you are talking about the title? The name of the webpage that appears in the tabs of the browser? If so I find this easier to handle in the code view? Look for the

    <title>untitled page</title> tags. Then replace the 'untitled page' with your desired title. You would have to do this for each page but at least then each page can have an individual title (as it should do) and a quick 'find and replace' can make this easy.


    Cheers,

    Luke

    Hi, thanks for your replies, I have already done this, yet it is still not working.

    It works in dreamweaver when I preview it in the web browser. But it is not working when my website is uploaded and live.

    I am using a free web hosting, and a free domain name if this helps.

    Here is my code below:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
    <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="doctitle" -->
    <title>AJStudios - Web Designer</title>
    <!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
    <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" -->
    <!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
    <link href="../style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <style type="text/css">
    body,td,th {
    color: #000;

    Thanks.

    It is vital to have a quality web presence. Like a shop front, your site's web design is a reflection of your organisation's image.

    Always always use percentages and not pixels. Because every browser and every screen is of a different resolution. So setting it in percentage alters the site according to the resolution it is being displayed in.

    Thanks.

    The code looks perfectly alright. Even I would like to know why this happens. Why no replies to this..??
