Great post, one question tho, how would I add music to this splash screen?  I don't want to add a actual player to it.  Just want it file to kind of hide in there and play and when someone clicks enter, to shut off.  Hope that can be done.  Also, my background image is tiled, but the image I used is not.  How do I get rid of that?  I just want a single image in the center of the page.

Thank you ahead of time.

Unless I'm mistaken, you could just go into the control panel and in the site pages section, use the "sound" option for the Welcome Page, and add a sound file there.

Sorry for submitting this question again.  But as you can see on my Thundercats page,  the background tiled instead of showing it just the one time and centered.  Is there a code to fix this?

Thank you for the help.

In your CSS, just add "center center no-repeat" to the end of your image... I also changed your background color to black (#000000)... the grey didn't match

I highlighted the addition below:
body { background: #000000 url(http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e123/gncsteele/BXK257386_thundercatslogo-by-chahad.jpg) center center no-repeat; color:#fff; }

I CHANGED my splash screen. But, now my question is how do I make it to where we can click on the image to enter the site instead of having to click on the enter button?

tbh, I threw the pot pie away. I don't like those things. It was just a dirty joke...

And as far as the link goes. I'm retarded. I'll just say that much. I should have known... LMAO

Hi Mottie I wondered if you can help me please hun

Ive been working on the welcome page for my site (I made a test site to work on while I was mucking it out) Ive managed to get so far.. but have a few problems

The background image is tiled and repeats too much and there is a box line at the bottom which is surplus to requirements.

Ive read and read my programming but can't for the life of me see what is wrong.. Im new to this however so was wondering if you could help please

The box is also too low down on the page.. and I would like them to click Manifest AScension in order to enter the site.. if you need access please let me know and  grant it :)

I tried to copy the progam into here but it didnt like so I will send it hopefully in a pm

 Thanks


Manenu
