on my page, i want to change a few things

 

http://rdsales.net/

 

you'll notice all my topic titles like categories, manufactures and whats new....the botton on top, you can see they're setup to be on a gray background, how the image curves like it was part circle, it should be black on the very outside to match the background.

 

how do i edit these "endcaps" of the buttons, so that they look more natural?

 

 

also, the tab "best sellers" somehow got messed up. it seems this is the only botton on "style.css" i cannot edit...wonder where it is, or what i need to do to fix it.

 

 

thanks for any help

Mike,

 

On my client's site (still under development) I edited the three corners (corner_left.gif, corner_right.gif, corner_right_left.gif) to change the colors to match the site colors I chose. I used Macromedia Fireworks, although I'm certain you could use any image editing tool. The three corners are found in .../store/images/infobox.

 

It might take a little work to get the colors set exactly to you want, but it's not that difficult.

 

Good luck,

 

Dave

thanks for the reply. i did exaclty what you said, i think

 

i erased the 3 old files, and made 3 more, with black behind them instead of gray. then uploaded them with the same name.

 

 

everything still looks the same, do i need to name them something else, and change all the files refferencing them??

 

i figured out that i need to change the "leftbox" and "rightbox"

 

what i cant figure out is the center box's, what they're called, like the "new products for februrary

The boxes are different object than the corners.

 

I downloaded the three corners mentioned above, changed the colors to what I wanted and uploaded them without changing the name. If you changed the color and uploaded them to the folder that you got them from, the only reason I can think of for the old colors displaying rather than the new colors is that you need to flush your browser's cache memory. Where than feature is located depends on your browser.

 

Regarding the leftbox and rightbox, there are multiple boxes on both the left and right sides of the main page. What exactly are you referencing? And what do you want to do to the box(es)?

i found that the boxes were in different locations, so i have to change a number of images to get the result that i want

 

i have but 1 more question, i hope you can help with

 

when i change the image file, it gets very short, not the original height it was. how do i change the height, to accept the full image height?

 

see

 

rdsales.net

 

under new products for february, the image is about 25% of the total image height....it should be as tall as the others, i cant figure out why

If you are talking about the line with the text 'New Products for February', the height of the line is set in the CCS. I believe it is the code element that starts with .productListing-heading . Just change the font size from (the default of 10px to something else - I have mine set to 14.

 

When you place an image on a page, there are two attributes that you can use - width and /or height. They are used as follows <img src="museum.jpg" width=720 height=295 border=0>. The sequence of the elements does not matter. The 'border=0' remove the narrow blue border you see around the image unless you set it to 0.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Dave
