New to Dreamweaver





nfuriate
Hello, i'm new to making webpages and i have a problem on the first step. See, i've made a layout which all went ok, sliced it up, uploaded it, and placed it into the homepage in a table. Now my problem is how do i insert text over the top of the layout, like for new content (news) on the mainpage? Or is there some sort of script where i can update the text?

Thanks, nFuriate

You have to set the images which are sliced up in the background,so you can instert text there. I recommend you see more into the power of CSS. because in tables you will have a hard time getting everything exaclty like you want.

Just a few links.

Those tutorials are a bit confusing, is there any tutorials that show how to be able to get text over your layout using dreamweaver tables?

im not too sure about tables, but whenever i want to have text over my images etc, i add a layer. This might be some unprofessional solution but it works perfectly fine Very Happy

You mean like this:


I sayd before set it as background ant its done!Very simple!

but if you do that, you cant alter the position of the bakground. Normally, this results in your image being a lil further to the left once you upload.
