Ok here is what I am working on (please don't laugh, jab, poke, make fun of, ect...) www.myleague.com/bingodobbers (http://www.myleague.com/bingodobbers)
The right side of the page, if you look close you can see where the backgrounds do not line up. I have to iframe in the content the I want to add and I know (well ok, I think) there is a way to make them have a transparent background so you can't tell they are iframed in basically. Can anyone help me with this. I am just learning html and all that good stuff, this is something a friend asked me to do for them. It looks ok, i guess, the way it is. But if someone could help with my question I would appreciate it a great deal. Thank you.

Oh, btw...99.5% of our members use IE or AOL, so it is basically designed with that in mind. You may not see certain aspects in other browsers, but nothing that pertains to my question.

Then in the announcements section of your admin control panel. Change this

<P><center>

<iframe src="http://dobbers.offline.org/potm.html" width="800" height="350" frameborder="0"></iframe></P>
to this

<p style="text-align:center;">
<iframe src="http://dobbers.offline.org/times.html" width="725" frameborder="0" height="300" scrolling="no" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>
<iframe src="http://dobbers.offline.org/potm.html" width="800" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowtransparency="true"></iframe></p>
Is there a reason why you are using two iframes instead of just one page and one iframe?

Technically there are 3 iframes. They go in different sections. Bcz it was easier that way at the time. The player of the month thing changes every 2 weeks. So that was the way I did it. But now that I think about it, I have everything in tables (tables are our friend) so I could do it all on the same page. hehe. I did mention I was new to html... :o Thank you for your help I appreciate it.

If are you new to html you should really make sure you take a look at CSS and try and use it when possible. It is pretty simple to pick up, they got some good tutorials on I think over at w3schools.

And since you're new you probably aren't aware of our posting guidelines (http://www.codingforums.com/postguide.htm). Please take a moment and read them so you can properly name any future threads.
