I keep trying to get my html buttons and banners to line up correcly; it is really difficult to add html and not be able to see it as it shoulod appear on the website prior to publishing. I can't understand why homestead makes this experience so difficult! I pay good money for the website - it should be a lot user friendly than it presently is.

When you add your own html code to the page, you'll want to position the top left corner of the html box on the page where you want it to be positioned. If you look at the code itself, the code will almost always dictate the size of the element. You'll have to have a little knowledge of html if you are going to integrate it into the site.

can I accept payments with the basic website.


I was planning to add a paypay, but I am using the basic website builder, not simple store or business. Can I add a means of payment to the basic website builder?

Once upon a time, you suggested using Sea Monkey to make Tables for my website because Sea Monkey will generate the HTML code for me. Considering image sliders, there are quite a few of them around. I am using the image slider in site builder, but not really happy with the quality of the display. More specifically, the images seem to be taking a fraction of a step back for each step forward, that is, they "stutter" a little. So, I would like to implement a better slider on my site. With it in mind that I am capable of implementing "canned code" on my site, and even altering it some to suit my preferences, what site on the internet would you steer me to for getting an image slider that provides really smooth functionality, perhaps transitions between images, and user controls, like the ability to stop/advance the slider? Also, do you have any suggestions for getting better results with site builder's image slider?

One that is gaining popularity is Wow Slider. http://wowslider.com/
I have seen some people install this with success but it might be a little more complex than some others.

As far as using the SiteBuilder image scroller, there is not too much you can do to optimize it other than making sure your image resolution is not to excessive and resizing all of the images to the same dimensions before you import them. If yo do this, and don't use more than 4-5 pictures, it usually scrolls nice and smooth.

For Pinterest, you'll have to get the html code from the Pinterest website. Then follow the steps above to embed the code in your page.

Hi,
I'm trying to show my Facebook page as a feed on my Sitebuilder website. Here's a link. You will see that the FB page is partially up there, but I can't make it bigger so it will display my most current posts. I've tried fiddling with the height and width, but that doesn't work. Here's a link to my website so that you can see what I'm talking about.

http://newvwhcsite.homestead.com/~sit...

Do you have any suggestions?

thanks,
Anne

I am not seeing the feed show up at all. Did you publish the page? Also, we can't always troubleshoot 3rd party code. Did you get it directly from Facebook? Usually their code generator will allow you to set the dimensions and i don't see any in the existing code.

I did publish it. Here's the link: http://newvwhcsite.homestead.com/~sit... .

Also, here's the HTML code, which has dimensions of 3" wide and 6" high

It looks like you added the code correctly, but I am unable to determine why it's not working correctly. The code has references to, and is dependent on resources not hosted by Homestead, so our ability to troubleshoot 3rd party code is limited. You may need to check with Facebook, or whoever provided you the code.

HELP with ZOHO Contact FORM - HTML.


Need help with HTML code. I have a ZOHO CRM account. Within that tool, they build a custom template for a contact form that once the HTML code is pasted onto the website will create a form and import those details into the CRM. For some reason I can't get it to work? Anyone out there know ZOHO or HTML that can help with this issue? ZOHO is saying it's an issue with my hosting site.

Here is the code the ZOHO Site generates:

As you can see your html code does not appear on this site, however this thread shows how to add the code to the page. Is there were you are stuck, or do you have the code entered?

Installing html code on my website.


I am having trouble installing a piece of HTML on my site, no matter what I do, or where I put it, it is staying on the top of the page and covering the writing that I already have on my site. I had no trouble with installing html before. My site is http://www.onlinepsychicadvisors.com Thank you for your help.

Make sure you are using the html box rather than an ordinary text box or other method. If you still have problems, let us know which page and where the html is located so we can look at it.

Yes. Just insert the code as shown above. There are a lot of good free html codes for this. Just search Google for "html code for countdown clock" and you'll probably find dozens to choose from.
