well william... it depends exactly what you're looking for. Do you just want plain text in a yellowish box like most websites have including our menus? Or do you want a larger image to appear as a mouse rollover with a subtitle underneath it.?

yea, I'm googling it... and nothing, it's all about images. I typed in "mouse rollover code" - "mouseover code" - "mouseover html" - and more... and it keeps pulling up how to create an image rollover.

Image Rollover by the Site Wizard

This is also a good website for other sources... first time I've been here, but I'm looking it over and appears they have a lot of good information. It might help with my books.

Hello William

I believe you're wanting to create a tooltip?

You certainly add a tooltip to your image but this will require a bit of HTML coding to achieve it. Here are the steps to do this:

1. Drag over a HTML widget or text widget (and click on the HTML button on the text toolbar).
2. Add in this code:

<img src="resources/yourimage.jpg"; title="your description">

Replace the following:

yourimage.jpg - replace with the name of your image file name
your description - replace with a short description of your image

I hope that helps!

hmm, this looks too complicated, do u know what im talking about?? when you put your mouse on an image text normally comes up, like your identifying the image, for example, bevs pic on the homepage, when I run my mouse over it, why doesnt it show the name?

let me know if it works. I have yet to have a purchase or donation so I'm not entirely sure. I'll check the account after you did to see if it works.

What do you want the money to go to? I give this option to those that donate, if they decide to chose a charity or personal gain... I'll do whatever they say.

Did you know that with a paypal plugin you can use your paypal funds just about everywhere else on the internet? That's cool!
