Probably shouldn't have bought RLM

I misunderstood the application.

I was thinking that it was an editor not a layout manager.

I downloaded a responsive web template from freewebsitetemplates.com.

I need to do some editing with it .

I can do some in HTML Editor, but some changes just won't work.

I tried to do an image mouseover .

Doesn't work.

I'm not a programmer.

I know just enough html to get me in trouble, but usually I can figure it out.

But when it comes to any other kind of code......well, take a look....... www.1classad.com/BoulderWords/gallery.html

Outside of strongly telling me where to go, can someone give me some help?

Is there a way to work on this in RLM?

If not, I guess I shouldn't have purchased it.

I'm not a coder but have dabbled in it, I have spent quite a bit of time in this forum and just now getting to make a site.
Yes you could do the site in RLM, but I would think it would take a while to learn it well enough to produce a site.
Might want to talk to some of the people on this site that might be able to do it for you.
An expert at using the wrong tool the right way.

You can’t import that in to RLM no. As far as building it from scratch in RLM you could do most of it. The background image you couldn’t do, and the mouse overs you couldn’t do without hand coding. Most of the other static stuff wouldn’t be a problem.

If you just want to change images look at the html. Look at your img src onMouseOver and onMouseOut tags.

<img src="http://1classad.com/BoulderWords/images/Rock.jpg" onMouseOver="this.src='http://1classad.com/BoulderWords/images/Rocka.jpg'" onMouseOut="this.src='http://1classad.com/BoulderWords/images/Rock.jpg'" />


Good Luck

Any changes you need to make to any template that is .html and .css and a few others can be done fully in the HTML Editor. If you have some things that you are saying "do not work" then it's most likely user error as the HTML Editor is a text editor basically, that is setup fully to edit and view all HTML and CSS files without any problems. My guess is that you are not editing the code correctly.

I would also validate your page, or at least check your menu as you have a bunch of stray </a> tags that don't belong in there.

Other than that, RLM is a layout maker, not a website builder hence the name "...Layout Maker". People really need to take advantage of the Trial periods on things in this company's software, that's what they are there for, to make sure it's what you want to buy. :P

I am trying to show a larger picture when you mouseover the smaller picture.

What it seems to be doing is bring up the larger picture, not over the smaller picture but off to one side.

Problem with that is, when the larger picture comes up, the mouse ends up in an open area and it tries to go back to the smaller picture. So it kind of bounces back and forth.

Frustrating!

I believe it’s moving around because your gallery div is limited to 618 px. It’s fine with the small pictures and spaces but when you try to mousover you’re adding a larger picture and that causes your row to equal more than the 618px width, so it jumps down to the next row.

To do what you want without breaking the format, you may need to use some type of jquery popup.

Well, I was hoping I could somehow do this in html.

I know nothing about jquery.

I looked it up and spent a couple of hours trying to figure it out.

Knowing I can't learn it in two hours, I thought maybe I could get some idea of how it works.

Nope.

As I said before, I know just enough html to get me in trouble. I can't imagine how much I can screw this up trying to fake my way through java.

I appreciate all for your help, but I'm close to throwing the towel in.

I think I'm getting too old to learn new tricks.

This may sound kinda funny, but WFB will help. Generate a popup form and put the links to the css in the <head> of the page. Now, add a link to each picture and add the class fb_iframe. That should make any picture appear in a popup window.
