Dave, my apologies! I should have checked a few things before posting, I know better than that! I forgot to replace the universal char set to:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8">

... on those pages.

I do have one more issue, the "name" is showing is a smaller font on the details page, and I'm using the exact same code/styles as I simply duplicated the pages and replaced the records. The other pages "detail page" all show the correct font size.

If you view source on that page you'll see you have the document header twice. Search for "<html" and you'll find two of them.

That could be related. It's definitely an HTML issue. What I usually do in that case is save the output to a plain HTML file. Trying to figure out style/css issues in a plain html file is often faster.

Try removing the second html header and see if that makes a difference. Let me know how it goes!

That did it! The code needed a good cleaning.

hi Dave,

i saw your code, how would this be posible if you dont use php...

Hi Dave,

This is exactly what I want to be able to do, but I'm completely unfamiliar with php. I certainly understand the concept of what your code does but I'm unsure of how to manipulate it to meet my needs.

I'm trying to create a photo gallery for a client. I've set up the Photos section using a Multi-Record Section Editor so I can display photos from each event as a group. My intent is to have the main photo page of the website display the description of the event, three thumbnails (unlinked) running horizontally, then a link below that the user would click to take them to the list page with larger version of the photos once again running horizontally.

Can you give me some detailed codes snippets that might be able to help out?

I'd sure appreciate it!

I'm not sure what you mean? Can you explain your question more? Thanks!

Hi James,

The first step is to create two mockup html pages that show exactly how you want those pages to look.

Next is to create a viewer page that outputs all the information (the images and event data) without the design or layout.

And the final step is to organize the html on that viewer page so it "looks" like the design in your mockups.

Let me know if you are you able to post a link to your mockups and how far you've got with creating viewers and I'll try and help you with the rest.

Hey again Dave,

Sorry for the delay in my response to you. I also work at the restaurant that this site belongs to. It was a really long week! Anyway, I've got my html mock-ups & viewers posted for you to review. Links are below:

Please let me know if you have any questions or if there's anything else I can provide you with.

Of note: I inherited this site. It's not my design & the code is pretty sloppy...
