    I don’t know exactly what you guys are talking about, but I fear it means I’ll have to start all over, doesn’t it?

    In reply to: How Do I Do This?

    It’s working great. Thanks for everything Chris. I’d be using a plugin if it wasn’t for you.

    In reply to: How Do I Do This?

    Hey Chris,

    I owe you a huge apology…I wasted your time.

    So, after trying all the various combinations you suggested, I remembered that when I first tried you original suggestion:

    <table class=”forumlist” id=”forumlist-<?php forum_id(); ?>”>

    that I had put it on two lines. So, the “id” line started with a black (rather than light green) “id.” I thought, “Oh, that needs to be green,” so I went ahead and added < to begin the line.

    Obviously I’m learning this stuff as I go. Anyway, I went back, used you original method all on one line without adding the extra < and, guess what? It all validated.

    I’m an idiot. Sorry for waisting your time and thanks for making it work.

    Oh, also, I didn’t want the “Hot Tags” so I justed cut that entire Div out. Everything still seems to work and still validates, but I worry that I shouldn’t have done that. What do you think?

    I signed up for adsense and I’m thinking of putting ad code where hot tags was

    Hey Chris,

    Thanks for answering. If you’re still up, well, I have to go to bed. But, I’ll try it again in the morning and let you know how it goes.

    Thanks again

    In reply to: How Do I Do This?

    Hey Chris…still around?

    I’m continuing this thread because so much on the info is here.

    I’ve been trying to validate my html and css by trying the various methods listed above.

    This didn’t validate <table class=”forumlist” id=”forumlist-<?php forum_id(); ?>”>

    But, this did <table id=”forumlist-<?php forum_id(); ?>”>

    Both the html and the css are perfect with the last one, but I lost some of my styling, namely the colors. Any ideas?

    In reply to: How Do I Do This?

    Hey All,

    I’ve been away for a while…I got an assignment so I had to put my site on hold. But, I’m back.

    I’m only writing today because I really wanted to thank a few people for their help. I would never have gotten as far as I have with my forums if not for them.

    So…fel64, livibetter and, especially Chrishajer, thank you all for your help. Since starting this whole WP and bbPress venture, I’ve constantly been surprised and impressed with just how generous people in this community are with their time and their knowledge.

    Thanks again…I’m sure I’ll be hitting you up again soon.

    In reply to: How Do I Do This?

    Hey Guys,

    Chris, sorry I didn’t answer sooner, I had to work this weekend and I also had to deal with a WP issue.

    First, I’d again like to thank all of you who helped me. Especially Chris and livibetter.

    Second, to answer your question Chris, no I haven’t fixed the table ID issue yet. I see what you mean and when I try to validate at W3Schools it says exactly what you said. Problem is I’m still trying to find where in my files to change the ID’s. Basic question I know, but I’ve looked at everything I think might apply. Ideas?

    So? I think I’m done for now, right?

    In reply to: How Do I Do This?

    @chgogrrl99

    Yes, remember I was going to try to have a list of the cities so people could just click on say “Miami” and then be taken directly to the “Miami” part of the page? Well, livibetter’s code created a list of all the cities and took them directly to the sub-forum for each city. If I create a link on the main WP Page for the Chicago board using an address like http://theangrywaiter.com/forum/forum.php?id=2

    it also takes them directly to the sub-forum. I didn’t really like that, so I figure I’ll just offer one link from the main WP site to the forums and let the visitor scroll past the other cities until they find their’s.

    It might actually be better because then they can see the other cities and more easily go and read posts in those cities as well as in their own city.

    Oh, and if they go to a sub-forum they can enter a post outside of the child forums. I tried to comment that comment form out, but it took them out of all the forums as well. So, now I think it was all a waist of time, but at least I learned something.

    @chgogrrl99

    I changed the title to alt=

    As far as the table ids…are you talking about the code I got from Livibetter?

    And about anchoring each forum?

    After all that work (by you guys, not so much me) I took that out and decided to just let people scroll down the page. I just think the page looks better and I kind of like that they can see all the other cities.

    I know, I’m a pain in the ass.

    So, on the front-page.php and the forum.php I see nothing like that anymore, but if I right-click page source when at the actual forums page I see what you mean.

    Edit: I see what you mean too when I run it through a valadator

    @chgogrrl99

    Yes! It works!

    I was having trouble in IE (it worked fine in Firefox). Now, after removing img id, it works in both.

    Thanks.

    I think, though, I might make a slightly smaller logo/click here so it fits better into the header.

    @chgogrrl99

    so now I changed style sheet put floated the image right and it’s postioned fine, but there’s a bortder around it.

    I think I should replace that image with a smaller one

    Edit: Ok, I think it’s related to what you said before about the image being too large. I kind of blew that off because I was using a different image. The new one is 280×100. I think what I’m going to do is make a smaller image, upload that and change the header.php ing src.

    Then, try to hide the border.

    @chgogrrl99

    The whole header is clickable now…could this be because I positioned it with padding?

    @chgogrrl99

    OK…I have it positioned and clickable, but somehow I’ve made the entire banner clickable and added a border.

    To position the logo/Click here I added a left-padding in the style sheet.

    I also had to add change the header php from src= to img src= to get the logo to display after I added href.

    @chgogrrl99

    I was able to move the forum Title up and to the center just by adding some padding. I think it looks good there.

    I removed the logo from the background in the style sheet.

    Now, I’ve been trying to add the image to the header.php, but I don’t know how to do it.

    @chgogrrl99

    Ok, so I now know how to link the individual cities. I can use Livibetter’s new code and do it from the front page of the forum or I can do it from the Forum Page on our main site. Thanks to both of you…I’m really learning a lot!

    So, now I’ve added the logo with a “Click Here” statement to direct people back to the main site. As you can see http://www.theangrywaiter.com/forum

    it sits on top of the title.

    I was thinking maybe I could move the title up higher and center it.

    Don’t know how to do this.

    Then I could make the logo and “Click Here” words clickable to the main site. (The main site and forum are not integrated if that makes a difference. They both reside in their own sub-directories.)

    Don’t know how to do this either.

    I have to go out for a while, but I’ll be back around 11:00 Chicago time.

    Talk to you later.

    Oh, BTW, what just to make sure I explained it clearly…

    On my main WP site, in my navigation bar, I was going to have Page called forums. If someone clicked on that “Forum” Page button they would see a list of cities. I just thought it would be easier for them to be transported directly to their city of choice rather than having to scroll down the page once reaching the bbpress forums.

    @chgogrrl99

    You were right…I’m an idiot and uploaded my backup front page.

    It works now, but it’s not exactly what I was trying to do.

    I was trying to do something like that on my main WP site. You know, build a “Page” with those links on it. But, I might leave it as is…if I do, however, can I take out the “New Topic In This Forum” underneath all of the sub-forums?

    I don’t want people posting things outside the individual sub-forums.

    BTW, thanks for all of your help. I never could have made this thing work without you and Chris

    I got all the id’s and entered them into the line in the code…mine where 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 18, 19, 20, 101

    then I uploaded the new frontpage.

    Everything looks the same. So now I’m wondering how I use this. I mean, when I try to create a link from the main site to the “Chicago Forum” what do I put in the link box? http://theangrywaiter.com/forum takes me to the forum page, but nothing I do seems to take me directly to the Chicago Forum.

    I must be doing something wrong

    @chgogrrl99

    I did…but if I click edit on the individual cities I see that the “positions” for each are different than the id’s I entered in the new code.

    Maybe I should go back and enter those numbers instead.

    Chris,

    I took the logo out and will make a smaller one tomorrow That also says something like “Home” or “Click To Return To The Angry Waiter”.

    I was thinking maybe I could move the

    “Welcome, admin! View your profile (Admin | Log out)” buttons toward the middle of the header to create more room.

    @chgogrrl99

    Ok…so I changed the code.

    Now, what your saying is that on our main site if we build a “Forums” Page and put:

    Click Here To Go To The Chicago Forums

    Click Here To Go To The Atlanta Forums

    Click Here To GO To The Denver Forums

    ect.

    it will automatically take people there?

    @chgogrrl99

    Ok, so I have the id’s. So I should replace the old code you gave me with the new code?

    Then, on my main site I can add them as links:

    For example: “Chicago Forums” link is http://www.theangrywaiter.com/forum/id=2

    Is this correct?
