Ads & Center
Mood:  d'oh
Topic: FrontPage

I know one can't completely rid the ads off a free account, but I'm having this occur. 


Is there a way to put the ads on the top or bottom so it doesn't mesh with the writing on the site?

 Better view:


 Also, I'm having a hard time centering the light-sh blue part with the header. Can anyone help me with that?

     I don't think it's possible to use frames with an ad-supported site.

This was previously discussed on the A/F Blog @ URL:
Just scroll down to Wednesday, 12 May 2004, title: "Answer to popup vs. banner ad question"

At that time, it was advised by angelfire: "If you decide to build your web site with frames, you run the risk of having the ads appear in multiple frames. We suggest that you do not build with frames."

If you wish to stick with frames, then I suggest you upgrade to an ad-free site.

your site is a mess, too many pages in one.  this how the page suppose to be.

<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
    <title>site title here</title>
   <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
   <meta name="description" content=" Site description here ">
   <meta name="keywords" content=" keywords here ">
<body text="#000000" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" link="#0000EE" vlink="#970A14" alink="#140A97">

your page content here

If you want to fix the ad thing then don't build a page using absolute positioning and layers. Choose relative positioning so elements are flexible and can adjust themselves relative to other elements on the page. Your absolute positioning is causing the problem since everything on your page is glued down like a scrapbook. The ad has no where else to display but over your glued down elements.

Like dalleh said, your site is a mess. You have some serious code issues that need to be corrected asap.

Yeah I have no idea frames/layers. Anyone have an example of a well done site?

The iframe can stay- that's your chatbox. it will not affect the ads The absolute positioning has to go or the ads will keep running into your page content as in your screenshot.

I did a quick redo of your site removing the absolute poisitioning and using a relatively positioned table based layout instead. It's not the best job because of all the html errors your current page contains but I tried my best. I wanted to be able to show you how relative positioning works better with ads than your absolute positioning. Link is above and hopefully, I didn't screw it up too much so that it displays OK for you. The ads should be able to position themselves around your content since nothing on your page is glued into exact pixel coordinates but are allowed some flexibility.

Your site design is attractive and the content is plentiful. For what it's worth, design and content aren't your problem but html structure definitely is. I think you need to find a builder that can write proper html and also spend some time learning html basics including the structure of an html document. It looks to me like you took a css based template and then copied and pasted html into it willynilly because you didn't know better. Your page is suffering because of it. If you are using a builder then you may need to learn how to properly insert copied code with it.

A good site to learn html is http://w3schools.com/ There is also htmlgoodies.com for more tutorials.

A useful free WYSIWYG builder is available from firefox and netscape. They are called NVU and Kompozer. You can always use Notepad if you want to write the html yourself.

hope this helps

The ads can be taken off. Just edit your index.html and put an extra style and body tag after the head section, then  continue on with your page.
