Thanks for that suggestion papa. Are you thinking specifically of the blog page? I don't think the other pages are very long. Is there a piece of code that you can share that does this function?

Think I've got it.
<!--
<a name = 'a1'></a> (at top of page)

<center><a href = '#a1'>Return to Top of Page</a></center> (at bottom of page)
-->

or if you want to change things around a little
<!--
</div></div><div id="I41" style="display:block;" class="HTML_Default"><div id="I41_html"><style type="text/css">
.initial3{font-weight:bold;background-color:white;width:250px;
border:1px solid #ee0000;margin-bottom: 5px;}
</style>

<center><form<h3 class="initial3"><a href = '#a1'>Return To Top Of Page</a><br/></h3></center>
--> you can see sample of this at http://loydsworld.com/

You have done that so well.

I haven't forgotten the blidget either. coincidentally I broke the $%#@&* index of my blog somehow so I'm waiitng for Tuesday for a possible fix of this before I go ahead with it.

I'll do pre report as soon as I've got my blog fixed and you can then see the workings of it aestheitics (not) and all. I'm very impressed with Widgtebox customer support, they're very interested in peoples wish lists etc.

The reference to Tuesday sounded glib. Kershnee has been working on it and In fact Monique offered to call people in over the break plus work overtime herself on this issue. I was very touched by the offer.

: ) Not at all. Your blog index is on my to do list for tomorrow morning when I can get a techie to take a look. Which I suppose means it is on their to-do list and they just don't know it yet :)

Thanks for letting me know guys. I may have to explore another option then. Shaq... you can do this!!! It's just a matter of making use of the tools available. For my background, I found one through a site that allows you to download their backgrounds for free. The banner I made through Picnic and the buttons through Coolweb. The only tricky part was doing the tables so that my text had a solid background. If you need assistance with anything.. I'll be glad to help you out!

Littleus,

You haven't said anything about your families reaction to your site. If you'd like to share some of that I know many of us would be most interested. If not I understand completely.

How are they enjoying it?
Is it a focal point?
Do they make suggestions?

I'm really interested.

Hey Peter

Can you believe I still have not shown my family yet this site? I've been using my old one still until I have this completely done the way I want. The only thing outstanding is the inability to change the blog dates. I'm trying to come up with a workaround but have not yet done so.

That all adds to the build up. Such a lady of style :)
I hope you can give us a low down on it when it's unveiled!

The date thing is important I agree in fact for blog management the date is almost crucial.

I told you that I broke my blog index. I had extracted the blogs from Blogger some time previously and of course lost the dates. If I had been able to re-add the dates, I would have been able to re-index the posts.

I think that the title and the date are the two most important indices. I'm hoping that Yola will have the resources to get a fix for this in the future.

Littleus, may I ask you to have a look at krooclub.com/poetry. I'm trying to put the flash movie superimposed on the image above. They both have <!--div id's--> and I wouldn't have a clue how to combine them. If you have a thought I'd love to hear. If not it's no problem as I have another fix which is somewhat different.

Hi Peter... I'm definitely not skilled in this area. But I did take the liberty of trying to find something that may work for you. Take a look at this link - perhaps it can be of help to you? Sorry my friend that I am not much help!

Thank you Littleus. I haven't tried it as yet but I have the feeling that it will work or so close to working that it will give me the answer.

My searches were turning up blanks so thank you for your work on finding this for me.

Most grateful.
