Hi LGRAPHICS,

Are you trying to determine the Hex codes for the colors offered in the text color palette? I'm not sure that we have that information available but if you can tell me a little bit about what you're trying to accomplish I might be able to suggest another solution.

According to Photoshop the hex codes for the above picture from left to right are:
ffffff
e0e0e0
bfbfbf
a1a1a1
808080
616161
404040
212121
000000

Hi LGraphics

One handy tool to have if you are a Firefox user, is this add-on called Colorzila. It has this handy little eye-dropper that you can use to pick up any color on the web and it will give you the HEX codes as well as the RGB codes.

You can download this for free here: http://www.colorzilla.com/firefox/

or you can just use the color and go into the html to find the code. After a while, you'll learn how the colors work. I have been studying the colors a lot lately and I can sometimes determine a hex code using an rgb without reference. for example, #0000ff equals rgb(0, 0, 255) - although this is an easy to determine color, it's an example of how you can study the colors to determine what's what!

Hey thanks for all your solutions! I found a site (http://web.njit.edu/~kevin/rgb.txt.html) that helped too. I like the firefox idea; normally I use Safari, but will try that out. Thanks to Donald too—after a while I hope to know them like keyboard short cuts. Have a nice day! :)

Oh, and does anyone know how to make horizontal pages? That would be super cool for making fine art sites for painters.

you can actually do that letting the html know not to wrap your text. You see, how html runs text and images from one line to the other is a often hidden html that tells the browser to wrap the text to the next line. There are codes which I think are called "no wrap" codes and it'll roll over like that. I know it's possible with yola because I've accidentally done it before, but it makes web design so much more confusing. Hope with this information you can search the internet for solutions as I'm not experienced in doing this. :)

A suggestion is to go to the page you provided above and right click and view source then see if you can't determine the proper codes to do it. But without experience, applying someone else's code to your website for your use could be much more difficult than learning how to do it from scratch. :)

Hi, I recently did a horizontal website for my niece who's getting married in June. See it here: http://www.nickandmegan.yolasite.com

I used the tutorial here: http://woork.blogspot.com/2009/02/use... and downloaded the code. It uses a javascript file that I had a bit of trouble with but you don't even need to use it necessarily. Let me know if you need any help with implementing it on Yola.

Thank you! I am currently watching my friends son at a cafe (espresso and a cookie) and we are going to try this out together. Thanks for sharing Diane. :)

Little Harry likes the horizontal pages. He says, "My new name is Harry potter."
