Hi guys Im quite new to web pages.. but I have a problem I cant get my head round

I have created a page with a table Split into columns.. The problem is In the first column the data will remain the same were as in the second and third the data will change size and appearance. Is it possible to lock the first column some how so when I add things to the other column the table as a whole wont change size.

Thanks

From your earlier post in Helproom I see that you are using Frontpage but you didn't say what version. You can fix the width of the whole table from its Properties or just fix the width of any or all of the columns from the Properties of the individual <td> tags.

Hi I am using Frontpage version 4.0.2

Also I have looked round the table properties and not see a way to fix their shape and position.I ican see specify width and height that doesnt seem to affect anything. Also Is it possible to fix cells or columns as my site format will run off 3 main columns with cells part of each column.

Thanks

If you select the columns - whatever size they are and right click you will have an option to 'Distribute column evenly' so it will make them all the same width.

This is the code that handles the table I wat to fix. I cant believe even with a html editor it would be so difficult to fix the size of a table...Thanks Guys

What is it that you trying to do? What is the page supposed to look like? Is "Next Fixture" the page heading or part of the navigation?

The section to the left is supposed to be a navigation bar.. containing Next Fixtures etc. Then I would like to split the page into to columns to for the rest of the layout. However I they way I am trying to this means that the content that goes in the last two columns affect the size of the navigation column. I have tried using a separate table for the navigation bar. But the frontpage doesnt let me create a seperate table on the page.

Like I said creating the table to be used as a navigation bar isnt the problem. The problem is one you create one table put it at the left of the page. There is no way to create a new table unless you create it to the side bottom of 1st one. The cursor wont move across the page. Im using FP 2000. Im not sure maybe its because I am using the editor instead of code.

It's far easier to use FP's navigation feature to create a navigation bar at the side, top, or bottom of the pages, Then you just need to drag your page files (from the folder view at left of the design interface) into the Navigation view - FP will do the rest, placing a nav bar on every page. Your page content will change from page to page, but the nav bar will be there on every page. If you don't want a page to be on the bar, don't drag it into the Navigation view. It will still be there, in your site, and you can hyperlink to it if you want to send visitors there from somewhere other than a navigation bar.

It's much easier, and more professional than messing about creating a custom bar in a table.
