Ok, so my old blog is @ www.csironmen.com/v-web/b2

and my new one is @ www.csironmen.com/blogs

now I was trying to align my blog box w/ my image, but I dont know what code to use?

any suggestions?

Do you think frontpage or dreamweaver would work?

thanks

If you can figure out the HTML and CSS that you need, then I can tell you how to make b2evolution generate that HTML. But I don't really have time to create the design from scratch for you. Go to http://www.w3schools.com and read through the links [url=http://isaacschlueter.com/blog_roll?cat=25]here[/url] to learn that.

I'd recommend against frontpage. It's not really designed as a PHP editor, and it doesn't always play nice with other programs. Don't really know enough about dreamweaver to say whether that's a good idea or not. I recommend coding in a good solid text editor with auto-indenting and syntax hilighting, like [url=http://www.ultraedit.com]UltraEdit[/url].

I use dreamweaver to edit my php and html, and it's fine, frontpage is s*it with a capital S!

I seriously can't say enough bad things about it - it produces bloated code, and makes extra folders that you really don't need - I was forced to use it at school (I ended up having to minimise frontpage and use notepad, and maximise it and re-load my html when the teacher walked past - yep, I'd rather use notepad, with no syntax highlighting or line numbers to code my php in...)

the reason i was asking was because I wanted to know if I can copy+paste the code into dreamweaver and just insert the blog in my image. Do you think this would work?

I'm not following... Do you mean insert an image into your blog? Or insert an image into your skin / template?

All you need to do is drag the appropriate .php file into dreamweaver, and it should open up perfectly (assuming you're using a reasonably recent version of dw),

Graham, look at his site.

He has a picture, and wants to use it as the background, positioning the text in the blank spots in the image.

Untouched: study php and CSS, or look for someone else to do it for you, but it's not exactly a "copy and paste the code onto the image or image into the code" kind of thing. No wysiwyg for php, at least, not yet. :)
