Hello all, i'm stuck! Could someone look at this page:

http://www.hastycandle.com/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=1&template=vic.htm

and tell me how to get rid of the top portion that says "Home -> Catagories -> Victorian Jar Candles" and the "page 1 of 1"

I'm a real beginner and have been trying to figure out how to get rid of this top little portion and am lost.

Thanks in advance!
Rob

try to search your shopdisplayproduct.asp page, find
response.write "<div align='left' class=breadcrumb>" & header & "</div>"

put a ' in front of that line to disable it

and also

response.write "<p align=center>" & smallinfofont & getlang("langCommonPage") & " " & mypage & getlang("langCommonOf") & " " & maxpages & smallinfoend

put a comment in front of it as well

that should fix it

I think the problem isn't so much that those bits are being displayed, but that the way that they're being displayed (ie above everything else, even the header logo) is a symptom of your header/trailer html not lining-up.

So, I'd say leave those there for the moment and look at your header/trailer/template html; once you find/fix the problem on the header/trailer/template html those lines which are now right at the top will then drop-down within the center panel and look more correct.

Once that's done, you can then decide whether or not you want to take them out.

But for now, those portions are being output'd in the correct logical place, but something in your header/trailer/template html is making it appear in the wrong place in the browser.

probably something like an unclosed or spurious td/tr/table tag somewhere.

try running it through:
http://validator.w3.org/
and see what you get
(but remember that some "errors" actually need to stay there for it to work properly across some browsers; it's the missing/spurious font/td/tr/table tags that you'd mostly need to correct)

Kidd, thanks! The first part of your suggestion got rid of the "Catagories" part but the second part didn't work. I still get that "page 1 of 1"

I tried to find that string of text but it's not in there. I even isolated parts of it and used the find command in Notepad and it didn't find anything. Any other suggestions"

devshb, thanks for your reply! I'm kinda lost because with all the trailers and headers...I don't know which one to look at. It's all a little overwelming. I really need to learn some programming language.

Ron, can you find anything with getlang("langCommonOf")?

I did find that when I searched. After putting a ' in front, it's now gone.

Thank you much. I still have a small white boarder around the outside, but at least the junk is gone.

Where do you start to learn this stuff?

the extra white line most probably caused by an extra tr some where on your header page

Whether you are making your edits directly to the code or using a visual editor like Dreamweaver in Design Mode, the one trick that I learned from this forum was to take the 2 primary layout files and temporarily put them together so you could nail down your layout.

So, take SHOPPAGE_HEADER.HTM and SHOPPAGE_TRAILER.HTM and drop them one above the other into a BLANK new file. The code is commented nicely so you can always tell where one starts and the other ends.

Make your edits, fix your problems, then copy the 2 pieces back out.
