Hi Aaron....

For some reason, the background image in the Content Box Container does not display on all my pages.  It only appears on some.  Example, the Home page doesn't yet the Admin/Forums and others do.  Any idea why this is happening?

In my signature block you can click on Los Whappos to view it.

I don't see any of your images... it appears your host server is down.

Humm... it's working for me.  All the images on the site are hosted on my personal server.  They appear to be loading as of now, except the center image on our guild main page. 

Thanks for checking and if you get a chance can you try again to see what I am talking about. 

You can click on Los Whappos below my sig image.

I still don't see ANY of your images. Can someone else take a peek and see if they see any?

Not sure what you mean by this "center image on our guild main page" Ironhand, but I'll just post a screenshot of what I see.



I did notice that it does take quite awhile for your images to load.

Thanks for taking a look...

If you notice in the (EPH's) screenshot the center of all the content boxes is a crimson color.  It's not the same as the center of lets say the Forums page.  The center image is a crimson graphic which is the same image as the page background but darker.

I don't understand why the content box center image only displays on some pages and not all of them.

OK now I get it, well I'm not the best with coding n stuff, but I tried to (rclick, view background image) on your container background, and it brought me to this page. http://www.peopleconnectionblog.com/2008/11/06/hometown-has-been-shutdown instead of a pic like it should.

So I went looking through some of you're css, and came across this.

.ContentBoxBody
{
background-color:#330000;
background-image:url(http://members.aol.com/derekm001/daoc/lw/pellinor/guildportal/cr-center-d.gif);
color:#FFFFFF;
font-family:Verdana;
font-size:10pt;
padding-left:5px;
padding-right:5px;
}

If you put that url I marked in red in your address bar it will redirect to the page I got when rclicking on your background. So what does this mean? I have no idea lol, but I guess you got this code floating around somewhere, and it needs to be removed.

Hope this helps you, or maybe mottie can figure out the rest? GL

Your problem is basically what Eph said...

You have the "ContentBoxBody" defined twice - once in the CSS and a second time inside your Summary content box. That's why it's only messing up on your home page and not any others.

And the background image URL is messed up... those darn people shutdown the hometown!!

Yea, I had to move the images to my personal server because AOL shutdown hometown which is where everything has been hosted for almost 7 years.  I didn't realize there where two places the link was located?  I will have to see if I can figure out where the other local is.  Thanks for the Info guys. 

I checked the following:

Custom CSS = EMPTY
Custom Image Content Box Borders = EMPTY
Border Images = EMPTY
Custom HTML = All 3 boxes EMPTY

Content Boxes = Image locations correctly points to my server
Overall Style = Image locations correctly points to my server

You can see below the Background Image is set to: http://www.dmazer.com/daoc/lw/pellinor/guildportal/cr-center-d.gif


Main Box Body Area
Set the background color, background image, and foreground text color for all content in all content boxes across your site. Some specialized settings can override what you specify here, such as those listed in Grid and Table Rows (on this page).
Background Color    
Background Image    
Text Color    


Not sure where else to look or what to do.
