Hi there,

Im having a little trouble trying to have my Welcome splash screen aligned properly here is what it looks like at the moment

Any suggestions as to how to have it positioned properly ?

Hi Octomus!

Try not to use a table and other images to center content. It's best to just have the CSS do it for you. Try the code below, then read the instructions on how to customize it in this post.
<style type="text/css">
body { display:none; }

<div id="splashBox">
 <div align=center>
  <div style="height:10px;"></div> <!-- This is a spacer -->
  <img alt="" height="649" width="1000" src="" />
  <a href=";TabID=3226840">
   <img alt="" height="69" width="173" src="" style="border-width: 0px; border-style: solid;" />
<style type="text/css">
.StateBar, .BannerArea, .TabBar, .PageFooter, div.ContentBoxBody, .ContentBoxTitle, input  { display:none; }

body { background: #000; color: #ffffff; display: inline; }
img, img a { border:0px; }

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
var a = document.getElementById('splashBox').innerHTML;
document.getElementById('ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_PageContainer').innerHTML = a;

Hey Mottie,

Thanks for tryin to help me, you actually made me realise that i was seriously doing this the hard way lol

I simply went back to Dreamweaver and instead of slicing my image from photoshop i just imported the entire image as a JPEG and created a rectangular hotspot over the 'ENTER' button

Added my own CSS and the script you provided and hey presto

Check it out here

Once again thanks
