Hello everyone, I am new to this Forum,so please bear with me
I am using HTML4.0 for my pages.
I have PHP at my disposal,but dont know JACK about PHP !!
I have used the Text Over any Image-simple Table Style, for my text in the center of the page running from the top to bottom. In this same Table, I am usuing the Table background command for my main image to repeat itself in the center of the page.
This is all well and fine. However, there are left over slices of the images accross the top and bottom of the page. This is undesirable. I've tried resizing everything to no avail
Now getting to the heart of the subject matter:
I'm trying to get a image to tile up and down on the left and right of the webpage.
I don't want to fill the page with the images...that's easy!
Here is a sample of the exact code that tiles and repeats an image all the way up and down the left and right side of the page.
It uses the background image and tiles it up and down the full page,and allows for any other Web content, Text or Images to be placed in between it.
Here is the code I found on a page that does exactly what I need to do !!!
<BODY BACKGROUND="http://bldblocks.prodigy.net/wsn/images/user/english/personal/sunset/tile_sidebar.jpg" VLINK="#ff00ff" LINK="#c0ffff" ALINK="#4000ff" TEXT="#ffffc0">
Now that part works ok. But when I try to replace the tiled background image in use with my own image, my iamge winds up filling the whole page background...
this is exactly what I don't want. But There is nothing unusual about my image. I even named it (tile_sidebar.jpg), and I made the image the same size pixels as the Image in use.
Here also is the page showing how the image that tiles up and down the left and right side of the page.
If per chance you visit the page referenced above, you will notice all the othe pages linked to eachother do the same thing
Please, I dont want Java Script!,I dont want MS-FrontPage!,I would not mind if 3 -independent tables could do the job..
I just would like some simple HTML4.0or 4.1-code to get this to work, using the background image html code!!
Is there a way to have the image ("of my choice") repeat itself up and down the Left & Right sides of the page,with all y other images and text in between,nice and neat like ??, and especially not mess with the webpages content otherwise??
Everytime I attempt to replace the image with my own similar image (Different Image, not the same image) it just fills the entire background of the page.
Thanks to anyone who can provide me with the HTML code to do this.
P.S. I dont want to use two long up and down, gif's or jpeg's to achieve this.
What I mean is, I know how to insert two of the same graphics to run up and down the page, with using just the html code foe such a function. such as:
<p align="right"><img src="location/graphic image.gif">
<p align="left"> <img src="location/graphic image.gif">
But the images offset one another and place all the text in the middle of those two images, it's a real mess,so that's why I don't want to use that type of code.
I'm really confused, I mean, why is it?, that when I use my image, the same result fails ??
This question is so simple for those of you with a little better than basic HTML-knowledge-I would think.
But my knowledge is very limited in this area. So, any help would be GREATLY apreciated.
