Hello Yola,

I have a few points and some questions,
1. i think the border around an image link should be set to "0" as default.
2. Extra link options would be nice maybe target= or text-decoration: none.
3. Could the html widget get border properties?
4. Would it be out of Yolas company policy to just offer a blank page as a template? colour options would be CSS choice. You could put it as the last option as not to confuse newer users, Also on that point, i would love to see more 'advanced options' in general.

extra dumb question;
Why are timestamps added to images?

many thanks Lee. http://hexham.info

Hi Lee

Thanks for your feedback ... some quick comments:

re: point 1: Images added using the image widget should not have a border. looking at the code generated we get something like:


<img id="I5_img" src="resources/128800382637954886.jpg" style='width:; border:none;'/>

however, the styles defined in your template might have their own rules defined for image links.

re point 2: This is a good idea :)

re: point 3: Well, the html widget is there to enable you to add your own content, if you would like a border around your html content, simply do surround your html in a div with a border. e.g.:

<div style='border:solid 1px;'>
your content goes here
</div>


re: point 4: We are always looking to provide our users with as much flexibility as possible, while still keeping the tool simple and easy to use.

As such, we have provided some 'blank' templates which give our advanced users some flexibility. If you choose a template like 'NoFrills' and remove all the elements from the menu (click 'edit menu' and drag everything to 'out the menu') and clear your page title (just enter in a character), you can create a pretty blank page.

For example, have a look at:
http://nothingmuchhere.synthasite.com/

Finally, timestamps are added to image urls to prevent cached versions of your images being served. This ensures that you always get the latest copy of your image.

thanks for your fast reply,
re1; i meant when you add a image through a text box. (see pic below)
re3; thanks so much for this simple code - i love you.
re4; i use cleanslate which is the same sort of thing as nofrills once the pages are removed from the menu but neither are a true blank page. (see picture below - no frills)

Thanks christo - Lee.

Hmm.. interesting comment about the image border. I've added images through my text widget and none of mine have a border. Maybe it depends on the template you use?

go and test it for sure and leave the template it does not do it in here.
For sure clenslate does it - it leaves it default link colour (black)

Hey Lee

I tried adding a new image to a new template (Bare Necessities) and again.. I did not get any border. I also did not get one in Snowflake. I tried Clean Slate as well.. and no black border there!

I'm using FF. I added my image through the text widget. I did not make them into links though. Do you want me to try making them into links and seeing what that does?

if you would littleus - image links in text widgets. My point is if you add a image to a text widget and make it into a link, unless you know how to alter code you are stuck with a border.

I went ahead and added a link and the border only showed up on certain templates. The ones where the border didn't show up on were tastelessly and snowflake. However, you are right.. it does show up on Clean Slate and Bare Necessities. You have to add that < img style="border-width: 0px" > code to get rid of it.
