Wanted: tips for learning how to code layouts on HP.
How did you do it? Do you have any favorite websites to help? Do you use any software to help code or do you just start writing it yourself?

I love Embla! When I was still playing HL, I would constantly say "I'm gonna marry Embla one day because she's so awesome!". Lol So here's a question. This is for Bliss and Uni because you guys were the first ones I found with these layouts. On your homepages right now you have layouts where you can click different menu titles and it will pull up new information. Are these Imap layouts or something else?

People usually call layouts like the ones Uni and Bliss have 'anchored iframes.' All the content is on one page, and the links redirect to each specific section so it looks just like an external iframe/imap layout. Hope that helps! :D

Yup, usually called an iFrame.. mine is slightly different though, it doesn't use anchor links, so you don't get that awkward page jump when you click on new content

http://horsephenomena.com/home.php?id=28405Ok so I coded this and have a few questions:How do I get the HP logo off?How do I get the page to stay the background color? Whenever I refresh the page or go to the page, it shows up as the default HP grey. To get it to the blue, I have to click update layout. Any other tips you can see? Should the text be another color?Unis nav links forum post really helped!!

1) paste this within your style tags:#logo {display:none !important}2) Make sure you put the # symbol before all hex color codes, or they won't stay when you reload the page.Looks good so far! You could try making the text a medium-dark blue maybe? I think it looks fine as is as well though!

Probably a stupidly simple answer, but how do I add a patterned background like from colourlovers?

^ In your body { CSS tag, add in a command:background-image:url('IMAGEURLHERE');Pattern will show up as your body background, behind a content tag if you have one.

I was thinking that I'll start working on a CSS guide/list of frequently asked questions, where I'll post stuff I get asked all the time, as well as take new questions... I'm gonna start working on it.. at some point :p

how do you get your layouts without the hp logo and with the links over the top of the image and that includes the tables with horses and stuff in the table? Like unis? because i can code a basic layout but I want to give them a more professional look.
