There is only one line of HTML, the <link>, and the rest is just CSS in an html document. This is why nothing is showing up. You need to declare the proper html tags that a basic document needs, and then wrap your current CSS in


<style type="text/css">All that CSS goes here!</style>

Then you need to add HTML tags into the body of the document for these things to show up.

Jeremy is correct, and you will put this code instead of the one you have now:

<style type="text/css">.style { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 7px; font-style: normal; line-height: normal; font-weight: normal; font-variant: normal; text-transform: none; color: #FFFF00;

I suggest going through some of the basics at http://w3schools.com/html/default.asp to help you figure out what you are doing with HTML and CSS.

Close, remove the outer <script></script> tags. What I posted above is all that you should have there.

Please PLEASE read up on how all of this works, because these are fundamental things to know about HTML which reading the tutorials will help clear up.

Stylesheets don't work if there isn't an HTML document to alter. Stylesheets styles content, and HTML describes content.

The problem is that without the HTML, nothing will display. You need at least the basics of the HTML document before the CSS will show anything. This is the MINIMIUM, except its missing a DOCTYPE, but for the moment I won't confuse you.

Put the code from above in place of the <style></style> part.


<html>
<head>
<title>Page Name</title>
<style></style>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

You must read up on what you are trying to do, its more than just a simple answer can give you.

I'm sorry, there is too much you don't understand and you aren't following my directions.

Now you have everything in the wrong order and places, which is why it doesn't work. Below all of the code, delete everything else and put this.

Read the tutorial please.

Read it. Its definitley made things a lot clearer :) The background does go between the <body> tags i thought so.

You read all of those?

Your style sheet (I actually read it all, its rather long) has nothing about backgrounds in it. Did you write that code?

I think it might be best if you read more of the pages in that tutorial, it is really the best simple explanation of how pages are setup and designed. You will require at least that basic understanding before moving forward.

Keep reading. :)

It should help to if you make your css readable. when you begin to work on it you'll go blind with it all bunched up. much better if its like this



element {
attribute : value;
attribute:value;
}

Im going to read the rest of the basics now.
Would you be able to help me include the background in the stylesheet?

gnomeontherun
11-02-2008, 03:39 PM
You have to tell us what the background is...is it an image, a color, how should it behave?

bazz
11-02-2008, 04:14 PM
well I use the background element such that it provides the background color and an image if it is available.

for a div called 'stuff' it's like this



#stuff {
background:#444 url(/images/bg.gif) no-repeat;
}


That says to put up a background color of #444 (dark grey), and if the image called bg.gif is in the dir called images, it will show up. no-repeat means that the background image wil not repeat if the div gets bigger where for example, more content is added.

It repeats by default so if you were to say repeat-x or repeat-y it only repeats on each of those axiis.

Big Tip:
You should be making your page in xhtml, or whatever, firstly. Then style it. Can you imagine a house-builder painting and decorating before he builds the house? ;)
Much easier to code your page first, even if it is just to set the divs and element tags, with dummy text as supplied in FF's add-on ' lorem ipsum generator'

The background is just a colour, the same colour as the sides of my banner.

i just want the colour to fill the page and for the sides of the banner to blend in with it.

We can't visualise what you are doing and it would help greatly if you were to have an actual page for us to look at.

You need to help us to help you because doing it this way (without a page) means that we give you one answer only for you to ask another question where we would need to post again. This wastes time for you and us.

If you had a page we could each look at, then your questions could be more complete and the responses would be singular and complete, saving all of us time.

Not flaming you, just trying to get to the solution quicker for us all. :cool:

You don't understand what we are saying. You have to first make an HTML page before you can do anything with the styles. Stylesheets come AFTER an HTML page.

Please READ the entire section about HTML pages in that link I gave a few posts ago. Dreamweaver does include things if you tell it to, but it also assumes that you have some idea what HTML is and how it works.

Until you have a code page, there is little/nothing we can help with outside of if you hire one of us to do it for you.

Im going to try and find someone to code it for me as this clearly isnt working. All i wanted was for my stylesheet to include the background so i could put the URL in.

I'm sorry, but what you keep saying must not be making sense to us, which might be why all of the solutions we are giving you don't work. What is your BIG goal? Sure the background, but that is only a small part of a page. Have you got a purpose for this, are you learning, or are you just confused by everything?

I have got a purpose, i've been wanting to open a fansite for ages! this is what its for.
http://fw.members.freewebs.com/MembersA/WebzEdit/editHTML.jsp?token=61d64eee36f324c311d5e0a27cd&filename=Stylesheet.html&path=

i have inserted the background URL and its still not showing up :(

I have been trying to help you. Sometimes though, it requires a certain level of exposure to the basics to make sense of what we are telling you.

If you aren't here to learn about the coding (which I'm guessing from the lack of care taken to reading the tutorials), then I suggest that you just develop it in a WYWIWG editor. I don't know where you got all of the CSS, but its clear you didn't write it yourself so start again from scratch. Use Dreamweaver (you've said you have it) and don't get into the code view. This is the problem, you are trying to use the code view without knowing how the code works. Its like messing with the engine without knowing anything about mechanics. If you just use Dreamweaver without any code, you should be able to produce your pages without too much trouble.

If you need tutorials on Dreamweaver they are all over the net if you search.

(TO EVERYONE READING: I KNOW THAT IS NOT GOOD IN NORMAL SITUATIONS! But when someone doesn't care about learning to code, nor about standards and things is it our job to continue to badger them without empowering them to actually make something so they might eventually learn the importance of standards and coding practices?)

I agree with you. I have done what I thought was best to help without doing the programming. Trying to interest the poster in taking it from there. Learning to walk before trying to run!

That simply makes no sense.

The url is the address of your web page. The background is (usually), set within a css file and comprises a picture or a color like, #000;. There is no url in there. If a url is mentioned in the css it is purely to tell the browser where the graphic is stored on the server so it can access it.



i thought this forum was here for help. if so why is no one helping.


I would imagine that if you look back through the significant number of posts, made voluntairily by people, that you should find some instances of help. But, as I said before, we can't help blindly. we need to see what you are trying to do and to hear clear information relative to what help you need.

If you don't want help and would rather someone would do it for you, then you should ask a mod to move this thread to the 'Paid Work Offers and Requests Forum'.
