Fingers of Fury!

I have just created a Guildportal site for our Kinship (Guild) onLOTRO.  And I have some questions as I set up the site. Please bear with me because I am not all that computer literate and whatI like most about guildportal is that is seems pretty straightforward.  Ok I have a question about Tab Buttons.

On my homepage for non-members (or those who are applying to join thesite) I only have Pages available to be seen be non-members, thereforethere are 4 Tabs across the top of the page.  They are:
HOME CREED FORUMS MAIL

My problem is that they are not evenly spaced across the page.  Instead they appear like:

HOME    CREED   FORUMS                MAIL

I would like to have them evenly spaced. 

like this:

HOME       CREED       FORUMS        MAIL

When I go to the ControlPanel and chose Display Options for the Home page it does have aheading about half way down the page that says Tab Button Appearance,and then 2 boxes labeled inactive image and active image.  I haveno idea if this is the correct place to properly space out thesebuttons.

Can some one please help?

If you're using the WYSIWYG editor, you click the icon that looks like a chain link to create a link. If you're using the simple editor, your guild site link would be typed like this:<a href="http://www.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=109457&TabID=935460">Knights Templar</a>And would look like this:Knights TemplarAs for your tab button question... Using my browser's "view source", it looks like there are 6 empty tab buttons in between FORUMS and MAIL. Do you have 6 site pages defined with no titles assigned to them?

How can I check to see if I have any site pages with no titles. Remember, I am not very good with computers.  I is why I likeusing Guildportal so much, it is easy for me.

this is what Arc was talking about, the stuff in yellow is whats causing your "Space" between tabs

<div class="SelectedTab">
<a class="topTabLink" href="Guild.aspx?GuildID=109457&TabID=935460">Home</a>
  </div>
  </td>  <td Class="Tab" align="center">
  <div class="UnSelectedTab">
   <a class="topTabLink" href="Guild.aspx?GuildID=109457&TabID=959143">Creed</a>
  </div>
  </td>  <td Class="Tab" align="center">
  <div class="UnSelectedTab">
   <a class="topTabLink" href="Guild.aspx?GuildID=109457&TabID=935461">Forums</a>

I had this with my first site. I found it was caused by having pages visible to members only all bunched up together

eg, where (xx) indicates a hidden page

HOME  ROSTER  FORUM (xx) (xx) (xx) MAIL

If you space them evenly (using the ordering in page display options) you can get them to look like

HOME (xx) ROSTER (xx) FORUM (xx) MAIL

That will give you nice even spaces for your non members but
- it causes problems with having things in a sensible order
- you have to re-order things every time you add a page
