hello everyone. im trying to rebuild my site. im not very versed in web design or html so im just learning and i could use all the help i can get. anyway... i have this specific problem... im using dreamweaver ... for my layout im using an image done in photoshop and putting in a layer in dreamweaver. i want to be able to put a dhtml scroll bar inside a certain part of that layer where the image is at. this part is where the audience will scroll up and down to view text and or thumbnails of mine thus saving space and clicking on them to bring up a bigger view of it. my question is ... is this possible? im sure im not going about this right though. whats a better way of doing it? also.. how do you slice your image ....using fireworks to put as your layout on your site? whats the point of doing this other than it loading fast? do you all use layers,frames or tables or what? im very frustrated at this point so please bare with me and help out any way you all can. i need better methods on creating a web site. i dont even know exactly how to make css pages or if they work with my heavy minimalist design layout. i have more questions but this is a start. thanks in advance for the help. i know some cats in here are good at this stuff... ie ensign, igav, ambitouslemon...etc. etc. take care.
