Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Scrolling Text Boxes...like this..

    Hey all...I'm starting to learn dreamweaver...I know that basic cheap ways of getting around things, using background images etc and slicing. What I don't know much of is how to do things like on this site http://www.zeejustin.com

    How do they get those scrolling text boxes? Can someone help me or direct me to a tutorial? A file to look at would be better yet! Thanks.

    View source will be your best friend. That site uses a div with special overflow options edited with css. If you google CSS Scrolling Div I bet ya find all kinds of tutorials

    You can apply CSS style to it. Here is an example. Try it out by pasting the whole code in a new HTML document. See how it goes. Analyse the structure and suit it with your web requirements.
    <span style="overflow:auto;height: 100px; width:100px;">
    The contents of the text which you want to be in the scroll box. This one can be adjusted accordingly. Set the width to how wide you want it to be and set the height to how tall you want it to be. You can set about anything for this box. Try it out.
