The Posh web site used in another thread is a good example of my question.

Check http://www.posh.com.au/shop/shopdisplaycategories.asp?id=1&cat=Body%2C+Mind%2C+Spirit

Here they have 3 cool things I would like to learn:

1) A table around the Categories.

2) The Sub Categories on the left instead of up top.

3) Auto-underline of categories with Mouse over.

I could do this stuff using FrnotPage on a regular html page, but I am not sure how or where to do this in the ASP pages.

(I'm already using the Left version of the header/trailer pages).

Can anyone offer a clue?

1) Edit tmp_categorytemplate.htm. Simple html.
2) You have to add or massage the code in shop$colors.asp and shopdisplaycategories.asp. You need to follow the flow of the logic. Such as Sub CategoryHeader. CatHEader in shop$colors.asp controls it. To duplicate it, you have to add a cell, give it a background color with a border and take the paragraph align=center out. Simple for that one. To build the sub-category box, I would use a combination of FP and a text editor to build it. You might have to add cells, tables etc. A bit of a task but very rewarding when done.
3) Done with the style sheet.
/* Menu links */
.menus {
color : #2C2C2C;
padding : 3px;

.menus a:link {
color : #000066;
text-decoration : none;

.menus a:visited {
color : #000066;
text-decoration : none;

.menus a:hover {
color : #000066;
text-decoration : underline;
