I think that's when I started learning html. It's not too hard to learn, because it's basically written in English. How I started learning was to save a webpage to my computer, open it in Notepad, and look at how it's put together. There's also some really nice websites online, where you can look up what different things do.

You're welcome.

Learning how to code is a very nice skill to have in this day and age, especially if you have anything to do with putting things up on the web (which, being a member of this site, obviously you do). The learning curve can seem pretty steep at first, and if you don't do anything with code for a while you can get a bit rusty, but there are tons and tons of websites that can help you learn/relearn. Definitely a worthwhile endeavor.

Text formatting is NOT specific to SJ, so you should use other resources to learn about it. The link above should have just about everything you need for basic formatting. You could also do all this with CSS, but that's a little less intuitive, so master this stuff first.

The code is in the Menu portion of your template. Do you mean modify which items are in the navbar or modify the look of the navbar itself?

I just wanted to modify the look.
I tried to look at the Menu part and it seems like, there's just a little content in it. What should I change in it?

It may be that for your template, the look is dictated by the Overall template rather than the Menu template. Look for {MENU} in the Overall template. {MENU} is where the menu contents show up, and the things around it are probably what determine its looks.

Also keep in mind that it's also possible that the template uses an imported CSS file, in which case you'd find some line that looks like
Code: Select all
@import url("CSS url here");
Although you should also keep in mind that most templates use default_jumpbox.css and you probably don't want to mess with it. Anyway, in the case of the template you are using, all the CSS is in the Overall Layout section.

That would depend on the size of the screen of the person viewing your site, wouldn't it?

There are codes you can use to either stretch, center or repeat (in a tile pattern) whatever image you choose to use for your background.

I think the minimum size for a background image would be 1px by 1px.
If you want a background with a stripe, just make the image 1px by however long/wide it needs to be, and after repeating, it'll fill the area.
But if you only want an image that fits exactly, make sure the place you're putting that background has an exact size. If the size isn't stated, you shouldn't do it that way.
And you should also specify a background color similar to the background image, in case it takes a second to load the background or something.

Since that's a template-specific question (the way to do it depends on the template you're using), please make a new thread and post your template codes in it.
