View Full Version : making menulinks vertically on left page

17 Mar 2006, 03:24 AM
Hi, i am a beginner in web design and start using frontpage. i am doing www.dharmaflowersutra.net using fontpage and wanting to make 29 menulinks in left page vertically there, like www.dharmaflowersutra.gobot.com where i previously did using predesign templete there.

Can anyone teach me how to make the menulinks above using frontpage or show some examples if it helps?

Thanks for your suggestions.

One way would be to peek at the source code for your pre design site. By looking at that I can see that the basic layout is a table, with all the links in a div which is positioned to the left using css. You could always copy the html code from the gobot site and then play with it until you got the results you were after. The css code for the left div is probably something like this:

#link-area {
float: left;
width: 120px;
background-color: salmon;

and the html code would be similar to this:

<div id="link-area">
<a href="chapter1.html">Chapter 1</a> <br>
<a href="chapter2.html">Chapter 2</a> <br>
<a href="chapter3.html">Chapter 3</a> <br>


The <br> bit is a line break, and the <a href="chapter1.html">chapter 1</a> piece is saying that the link is pointing to 'chapter1.html'.

Hope that this helps a tiny bit, even if it wasn't quite what you were looking for!
