Hi, Alex,

Having the Help section in the main navigation is not "usual" I guess for most websites but I don't see why not if that's what you like. Perhaps it is left off the main navigation because it could imply that the customer will need help? Just a thought. I think it looks fine either way!

thanks Diane,
your right, leaving it on sort of imply's the visitor will need help. i am making a few adjustments to the new header version to make it look better. also having a help link on each video page and the homepage is enough
thanks

i am trying to make the new one better by making it always be at the top of the screen. but i cant figure out how to do it!

heres my code


<!--
<style type="text/css">
#bottom_lightbox {
padding:1px;
border-right:0px;
border-left:0px;
border-bottom:0px solid orange;
border-top:0px solid orange;
background-color:#AA0000;
position:fixed;
bottom:0px;
left:0px;
right:0px;
width:100%;
}
</style>
<center>
<div id="bottom_lightbox">

content

</div>
</center>
-->

i have tried adding some PX to the bottom but that isnt creating the effect i want, i want it exactly the same as it is at the bottom but at the top instead

thanks

Hi Alex

Have you tried to reposition the widget at the top of your page? If you want a lightbox both at the top and bottom, you could add a HTML widget to the top and copy that code into the widget to have one at the top and the bottom.

Just a thought!

the code makes the bar stay always at the bottom of the page like on http://tellyads.cz.cc/brands (the letter choice at bottom)
and the HTML widget containing the code is already at the top of page

Hi Alex

Thanks for explaining, I tested the code on my test site. If you delete

bottom: 0px;

the box moves to the top of the page.

Hope that works for you!

If you want the banner to go higher, add
top: -xx px

That pushes the banner up. I used -50px at first and it was too much. But -2px worked well. My box went to the very top of the page. You might have to test in different browsers to see how -xx px code performs. IE may not like it :-/
