Technical Support / centre-ing the newsbox
August 22, 2006, 10:24:30 AM
Can the newsbox be centred? In the example page;

Quote$align_box = "none" ;
//Which side to place the newsbox, with the rest of the page flowing around it. Can be "left", "right", or "none" to disable wrapping
But there's no option to centre it... It just looks a bit strange as the rest of my home page is centre-aligned
Applications / love or lust?

Firstly to conform to the application rules;

Desired username: 'loveorlust' (without the quotes).

Email address:

love or lust? has been my personal website for some years now, & although it's function has changed over the years it has grown slowly into a place where I upload fanfiction (mostly based on CLAMP works) & more recently it has been pressed into service to host my ever-growing interest in photography.

As my interest in photography has expanded, so to does the number of shots I wish to share with others. I dislike hosting my shots on third-party photo websites such as photobucket & imageshack for many reasons, & would much rather use 'Fotos on Web' (free software for Windows & Linux, homepage = ) & host the gallery myself. As I am proceeding onto a Diploma in Photography come the new academic year (September) the amount of work that I wish to host will dramatically expand. Not only will this include photographs, but also work in other media; sketching, paintwork, even animation/film/music, owing to the wide range of art & design topics covered in my prospective course.

However to my horror today after spending many hours scanning photos (I am prominently a film photographer, although I tend to then digitize my shots for easier manipulation) that Freewebs accounts have a limit of 100 files, which renders the account virtually useless for my use. Add to that the many other negatives of Freewebs (such as no FTP access) & it is no wonder that I am now in the search for better hosting. immediately came to mind as I have visited sites hosted by Xepher created by friends membered to internet communities such as Megatokyo & MysticalAura.

The best example of my intentions is what exists of love or lust? on it's current Freewebs hosting at . I would like to draw particular attention to the Photos page, because that is where my real passion lies & that is what the majority of the site would centre around. The final entry (Oz Experience) are shots I took whilst in Australia with the charity 'The Joshua Foundation' who work to provide life experiences to children with terminal cancer. This album/gallery was created with 'Fotos on Web' using CSS & XML. I was mid way through uploading this album when I hit the 100 file limit, much to my annoyance. Though the first entry on the Photos page (Leamington College Portfolio) displays my true focus.

I briefly posted on Shadowness ( however I would prefer more flexibility in what I can do, rather than just uploading my work to another un-personalisable conglomeration of artists. I want a place to call my own.

The majority of the site was written in Nvu ( which is an open source Windows & Linux alternative to FrontPage & other similar programs, though this is not to say that I do not have more than passable knowledge of HTML, CSS & using FTP.

I hope a fruitful future awaits us all!
