I cant figure out how to make a site without having to use the br code
to break the line. Example.. Ill have a menu with multiple links on the side.
But on the same area to the right / center I want a picture or another menu, how can i put it there without having to use the br code and breaking it? When i break it it doesnt match up and puts the next pic/menu/links on bottom of it. ... any help would be appreciated.. thnx

I don't think I get you either :confused: .

<plugin type="self" style="shameless: yes">

However, it is possible to make a site withour using the <br>/<br /> tag - http://www.chilipie.co.uk/. All of the physical appearance has been done with CSS.

If you provide us with more information/a mockup of a design, we should be able to help you out more.

Im really not sure how to explain it
I want a link to the left, a link in center and a link on right.. with other links under them.
Without having to have them on seperate lines of site. the first three links that is.
I hope that helps..

if not then its ok.

Could you give an example of the effect you're looking for, like an existing site that matches your ideas, or perhaps a simple sketch? No need for artwork, but you know the saying: "a picture says more then a thousand words"...

We've got a new top 10 list on the home page below, featuring our Most Wanted FAQs. If you click on the title of it, you'll also see full Top 100, so if you were thinking about writing a FAQ for the site, there's a good list of games that could really use one. Most of the top 20 or so titles are also eligible for FAQ Bounties as well.
Just in case you haven't been here in a while, if you registered before December 1st of last year, you'll need to upgrade (or merge) your GameFAQs account to the new Universal account system to keep using the message boards and other registration-required features as you do today. For more information, head over to our new registration page.
If you're new to the site and have questions, don't forget about our Help section , and if you're ready to dive in and start contributing, Contributor Central is the place to be.

How would I get the image on that side without it looking like I used <BR> and having it under the paragraph? I hope that helps

"a picture says more then a thousand words"...
I always thought it was "a picture paints a thousand words?"
:confused: ...Guess there would be many variations but it's the same meaning I guess.

Keep in mind that I'm not a native English speaker; I sort of directly translated the Dutch proverb into English. Yeah, I could have checked a dictionary... :rolleyes:

I thought it was "a picture is worth a thousand words", but there you go :rolleyes: .

Yeah. It was definitely a picture is worth a thousand words

Dan :D

Picture. thousand. words. Ok?

img {
width: 50words;
height: 20words;

This should add up just fine. Doesn't work in IE, though.

getting back to the topic here, have two divs inside a container div, float one div left and put 3 paragraphs in it and float the other div right and put just the image in it and there u go u got what u are looking for i think

<div id="container">
<div id="textstuff" style="float:left;width:50%;">
<p>text here</p>
<p>text here</p>
<p>text here</p>
<div id="imagehere" style="float:right;width:50%;">
<img src="yourimagehere.jpg">
all styling should be done in a style sheet that goes in the head tags of your page or should be done in an external stylesheet, i just did inline styling for this example
