Hi, this is my first time posting here so I am sorry if I missed something or didnt know about a post.  Please redirect me if you can.

I was looking at some of the GP Spotlighted sites and came across this site: Team Tribute Site I noticed that on the left side they have a menu bar but tab bar above.  I was wondering how to do that with this coding:

<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="142" height="177">
<PARAM name="movie" value="flashvortex.swf">
<PARAM name="quality" value="best">
<PARAM name="menu" value="true">
<PARAM name="allowScriptAccess" value="always">
<EMBED src="flashvortex.swf" quality="best" menu="true" width="142" height="177" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" allowScriptAccess="always">
</EMBED></OBJECT>

and were to put it at in the settings.  I have very little skill in coding minus knowing a bit of basic html.  I am hoping someone could help me with this.

Thank you.

Replace the flashvortex.swf with the link to where u uploaded the .swf file.

Second step is to make a freeform html on the left side if u want the menu to be there, then simply paste the code in the box using the <> option.

If u want the buttons to be on the top of the contentboxes, the horizontal bar style, simply paste the above code with corrections into the banner area if u have a paid site.

Thanks, I will set that up. But I want the horizontal bars to go away.  Is that possible to do?

Paste this into your banner area.



<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
 $(".TabBar").attr("align","center");
 });
table.TabBar {display:none;}
</script>

Actually all you need is
table.TabBar {display:none;}
The rest of the script is to center the tabbar... you don't need it if the bar is going to be hidden.

And Guuhka, you might as well remove that whole part you posted from your site... the script doesn't do anything for you anymore because you're using different bars now and your tabbar is already hidden - the CSS is a repeat of what you have already.

Okay, so I posted that into the banner area, but all it does is hide the banner.  Was there another spot I was suppose to place it in? Tried the Tab area but nothing happened.  I am confused on what I did wrong.

Okay, so I got it to work by pasting this:

table.TabBar {display:none;}

into the the Custom CSS.   Now all the color has changed.  I take itthere is no way to prevent the colors on the site from changing to awhite background with black font without coding the everything in CSS?

I tried putting both versions of the code into the the banner area and nothing happened.

I am confused at to what I did wrong. CSS  I don't know very well.
