I want to have a shared border on the left side. This is easy to do in Frontpage, but how can I accomplish this in VPASP so that it will appear all the time.

There are lots of ways of doing this, but basically you'd put it into the last bit of the shoppage_header.htm file, which would equate to the right-hand side of the left-panel.

ie if you're getting your site to use panels, then the shoppage_header.htm file would show the top panel, the left panel, and the start-margins of the central panel, and your shoppage_trailer.htm file would show the end-margins of the central panel, the right-panel, and then the bottom panel. All done by using html tables/columns/rows at the various levels.

You might be interested in our panel-splitter which works out all this kind of html-table code for you, which'd make this a fair bit more easy to work out where/how to put the relevant code:

The key problem to overcome is working out exactly which table tag relates to the end of the left panel, as that's where you'd place your border (this is why we use our panel-splitter on our own sites and other sites we work on; the overall panel tables are done for you behind the scenes, so you can simply add things like this border directly into the individual panel contents files or in the panel-separator files).
