Shakespeare made up the name “Jessica” for his play Merchant of Venice.
Shakespeare probably based it on the biblical name ISCAH, which would have been spelled Jescha in his time.

1) You have the cream/beige color background on your page and I wanted to know how you do that?

2) The "portal" or the front page - is that an HTML page or a special code that you are using? Trying to code for the board is different from Yuku and my blogging websites.


Just wanted to see how to do all this and did not know where to post these questions, thank you!

3) Also, where could I find this code being used here - to help me further with the coding here at Forumotion - any websites. I am a coder but it seems like it differs somewhat here.

1)  To Put an Extra Content Block of Colour Around the Forums.

CSS:

Code:
.mycontent {background: #EFE5BE; padding: 20px; overflow: hidden; border: 5px double #000; margin: 10px;}


HTML:

In the overall_header about 370 find..
Code:
<div id="page-body">

Directly above it put

Code:
<div class="mycontent">

So it looks like this...

Code:
<div class="mycontent">
              
<div id="page-body">

Then scroll right down to the bottom of the page and add a  


Code:
</div> between the </body> and the </html>

Like So....

Code:
</body>
  </div>
</html>
<!-- END html_validation -->

2)  I am using an html page for my front page.

If you go into this thread http://www.zandranna.com/t281-how-to-turn-a-message-board-into-a-3-in-1-website

And check all those posts out they should help.  But do come back and ask any specific questions regarding html pages.

I have tried to make it easy for people to build their own html pages by using No 4 along with No 3.

3) I haven't found any sites that help with coding, but you can ask specific questions at the forumotion help forum http://help.forumotion.com/forum

The basic code I am using on this skin is Subsilver which is the original skin that comes with the board.


On a side note.  I have movd these help forums around to make them easier to navigate.
