Inserting photos on the main page/creating links


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

 

I need assistance. Being PHP challenged, I'm having a hard time on two fronts:

 

1) Puting a photo on the main page.

2) Creating a link to a page from the name of the category which is under the picture.

------------------------

 

I have HTML experience where I can do this, but seem to be having problems with this.

 

Here is the website so you can see what I'm talking about - http://www.AmericanOrganizer.net

 

Any assistence is greatly appreciated.

well, here is a good thing to read for the php challenge. If you know HTML, this link will probably help you understand the layout of your page and the folders a little better

there is also a knowledge base that can help you

So with that being said.. It depends where you want to put it. You can also do it a few ways. if you want it to be a banner, like in the columns, header, footer or index, and will be something that changes, you can use the banner manager. If you want just a static image somewhere else, you have to code it but don't hard code it (meaning use the <a href = ) you have to use the file paths to keep the sessions. I learned that recently (i'm still new)

 

So basically, we need more info on WHAT you want to do exactly.

Thanks for the reply.

 

What I'm looking for is to put a static photo on the name page that describes the given category. If you look at the websites http://www.AmericanOrganizer.net, you will see empty boxes.

 

My problem is the following:

 

Where on the index.php do I find this?

What are the codes to put to create a path for the photo only

Is there any other place on the store that I have to make adjustments?

 

2nd Concern.

 

Under the image, there are catagory names. My program is the following:

 

Where on the index. php do I find this?

What are the codes do I use to create a path? When they click the name, I would like to create a path to that category.

 

Thanks again.
