Ok, I found how to do that with the php like the unity news page, but I still can't find how to put a text box with independent scroller or how to put 1 page into another as the unty clans's section f.e. :blush: Help?

So what? I still don't get what you mean ^^

"scrolling box for text"???! What has it to do with the address bar?

Do you mean frames? Or do you mean something like

<marquee>+ + + News + + +</marquee>

I have. I think* the data you're supposed to fill in there come from where you want to host it. Do you have a host?

In Dreamweaver, you need to modify your frameset, and split your frame down or right or left. From there, you will have one master frameset (the index file), and then whatever number of subfiles, one html file for each frame window. Dreamweaver does this well, and if you examine the coding it creates for the master file, you will decipher it all in a hurry.

 

Also, if you use Explorer as your ftp connection, type something like this in the address bar:

 

ftp://metal@somedomain.com

 

where "metal" is your username, and "somedomain.com" is the site you are connecting to. There may be slightly different address protocols; check with your host's tech section.

 

From there, you get basic folders that you drag and drop stuff into.

Thx for the further responses. :D

I've figured a lot of stuff including this issue I had from start. The problem here was that I had to put the stuff in the http/www folder that host has specified. Howso the default setting is better to be left with empty line, unless the host requires the files to be placed in a specific folder as in the case...

I've changed few hosts since then... anyhow I couldn't figure out the freehostia system so far. :blink: That's why if I don't get to live on the street, I'll start using a payed host. :P
