View Full Version : Adding a scrolling text bar over a picture.

I have been working on a guild for neopets, and as a beginner to coding I was stumped when my text box went below my picture not on it. Can someone tell me how to put it on the picture please?

:) the neopets site wont allow it so I have no idea. Thank ya though. it was just i would put <img src="http://i408.photobucket.com/albums/pp164/jasonem/Harry-Potter-The-Order-Phoenix-Deat.jpg"> and under it the text table, but the table would be under the pic not on it

use z-index: number; the larger number will appear on top
