[Express] Breaking apart

I am having this problem again. The knowledge base says that I need to make the graphic my background but I already have a page background. I am simply trying to make a box with rounded corners (has to be a graphic to do this, right?) and then add in my text.

I thought I had to use am html item to make sure that it is searchable… is that correct?

I am at least temporarily just copying the text and pasting it in without an html box and that takes care of the look of it but I am concerned about the text not helping with searches.

Text does need to HTML in order for search engines to index it I’m afraid.

Unfortunately I can’t do what I want to do with Freeway :frowning: I guess I need to look around for something else. I could do whatever I wanted on a blank white page on iWeb but it was time to move on and I guess the search is still on. The solution to make the graphic a background doesn’t help at all. Frustrated!!

Freeway will do anything any other web programme can do. Do you have a page we could look at with the design you want? We can then help you get what you need.

Freeway Pro can make round cornered HTML boxes. I’m not sure if Express can.

Can you add background images to HTML boxes in Express via the inspector palette? If you can then create your round box graphic in Freeway or another graphics app export and then add into that option.

OK… it looks like I can actually make the rounded corners on the html box. But when I want to overlap a graphic I get the big X and it won’t work.

I also have another site that I used a different edge, not just rounded and it has the same problem. That edge isn’t available for html boxes.

Nathan,

Here is a site I created in iWeb and am trying to mostly recreate in Freeway with some small changes:

http://beachbux.com/Home.html

Since I can do the html box with rounded corners now my issue is with the placement of the graphics.

And then here is a site I created for a client (on Freeway Express). It does the break apart thing on some browsers:

Thanks!
Leslie

My answer would be that if you have paying clients then the least you can offer them is to build their site with a Pro app.

David,

Does the pro version allow me to place a graphic partially on top of an html box? If so, I might consider the upgrade.

The Pro version gives the ability to ‘layer’ items on your pages in a similar manner to the way photoshop can ‘layer’ images.

This is not a true analogy but the principle is the same.

You have far better control over CSS positioning (layers) - none in Express. A big benefit is the option to use any number of actions that are not avauilable in Express.

Have a look at actionsforge.com to see what actions are available and what it is possible to achieve with them.

You owe it to your paying clients.

I don’t actually design for clients anymore… I will be taking a look at the upgrade for my own business however. Thanks for explaining the difference. When I first looked at the two I didn’t think I needed pro.
