I am starting a new website, it is 900pxs by 600pxs, and I’m having some troubles with a few things:

-Scroll bars: I have a page that has a long list of people with short descriptions, and I need the information to extend without changing the page size. To do so I need to insert a scroll bar (I don’t know if thats what it’s called) so that visitors can scroll through the list, without the size of the page (900X600) changing. How do I do this?

-Pop up windows: (once again, I don’t know what you would call this) I have a page where I am displaying art work, and what I want to happen is when a visitor clicks on a thumbnail of the piece, the large version of the painting comes up in a separete window, that is smaller then the web page, and has a “close” option in the top corner. I don’t know how to make this happen.

-Mp3s: I have a music page, with a list of songs from an album. I want an audio file to play when I click on a link (the song’s name), and I don’t want to navigate from the original page completely (then same idea as my “pop up windows”). The Freeway website has an instruction on how to do this and as I follow it, I cannot find the “Link to New Window Action Pallette”. Does someone know where that is? or an easier or different way to accomplish what I want?

If you don’t understand what I’m trying to say/get across in these let me know and I’ll try to explain more fully. Thanks.

Hi Jimmi

Scroll Bars - In the inspector palette with the div containing your list/descriptions selected Under Dimensions there is a pull down selector for Overflow. Choose Scroll from the options (default is Visible) The text box will then stay at the size you select.

Pop up windows - There are several ways to do this one. Either Target show/hide layer - using a rollover trigger on your thumbnail and target show/hide on your larger image or

Walter’s ScriptyLightbox - applied to your thumbnail opens a new image window, darkens the background and has a close function - have a look at http://www.actionsforge.com/actions/view/153-scriptylightbox

Link to new window - needs to be applied to a graphic (ie. gif text name of song or music icon next to html text description of song)

Again there are other ways to link to a music file but start here.
