I have a copyright thing on all pages on my site www.frodotraveller.com It sits Just below the pictures at the bottom but is there a way to put it down the bottom like the yola footer is on the free account. Does require any css or html added to the code? If so can someone please help me.

Kind Regards,
FrodoTraveller

Hey Frodo
1) Drag a new text widget onto the very bottom of the page and delete the text inside. Leave this widget blank from now on.
2) Drag another new text widget above the first and paste ONLY the text "© 2010 - 2011 FrodoTraveller.com - All Rights Reserved. " into the second to last widget. If the text is in a widget all by itself the disregard and simply ensure that it is second from last.
3) Click the margin setting tab on the widget and place "-250" in the bottom value box and place "250" in the top value box
4) Click preview to see if your settings are correct and your copyright text has moved below the style borders. If not, adjust in 10 or 20 pixel intervals but never with such a large number that you cannot access the widget to change the values back. It is always wise to leave a blank text widget as the lowest component on the page thereby creating a safety if you should go beyond the sitebuilder boundaries when adjusting the values on other widgets. It has happened to me countless times and without the blank text widget to add a positive value in the bottom box i would never had been able to save the page.

That should fix you up...

Happy site building
Ed

Just want to again caution everyone that if you don't have the very last widget on the site be a blank text widget then if you make a booboo and the widget with your content disappears never to be edited again there is not much that can be done to get it back UNLESS you use the last blank text widget as your safety. A really simple way to get the widget that has gone beyond the sites boundaries is to hit enter a few times (could be dozens depending on how far the other widget has gone down beyond the sitebuilder's boundary) in the last text widget and it will bring the other right up to the top.

Just had a thought that if you ever have a widget disappear beyond the sitebuilder's border then you could place a text widget right above the one that vanished and then above that place a two column widget (or another text widget) where you adjust the margin variables to "-999" in bottom box and "999" in the top box and that should bring the missing widget back into view. Delete or change the margin values on the last widget in addition to the one that you added above it to bring the other into view.

Laura did you see the hot air balloon? (hint, hint, wink, wink) Read your email...

My copyright things are in an html code box that I think you suggested about a year ago! It changes the year automaticly. Is there a way to work around this because the html widget doesn't have a margin editor?

Easy... Just drag th HTML widget into the left side of a two column widget and slide the center divider to the left or right until you have the copyright centered then adjust the margin settings like I show above... Don't forget your safety blank widget on the bottom...

Hi FrodoTraveller. To do this, first, copy everything in the HTML widget. Then close the HTML and drag over a Text widget. Then click on the text widget once or twice and on the text editing toolbar click the last icon which says "HTML" Delete the code that is currently in there and then paste in the code you recently copied from the HTML Box. Click on OK. Then delete the other HTML widget. Now, it will always update but now it has the ability to set a margin!

I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Nathan
